  1. Wow. This was a great combination of flavors. I used 2 tsp chipotle tabasco in place of the hot pepper sauce. Definitely a repeat recipe!
  2. I didn’t have carrots and don’t care much for them anyway, but I did have a butternut squash that I needed to use - so I diced that up and threw it in with everything else in the crock-pot. The spice mixture is a fantastic change of pace from your standard pot roast with the onion soup mix, and is suited the squash well. I might also switch out and use sweet potatoes instead of white next time. Thanks.
  3. I've made this recipe before and loved it! Very good!


I have always loved to cook. This got me into trouble with my wieght, because I loved to eat what I cooked. I am now a weight watcher, I have to lighten most recipes. My favorite cookbooks are Taste of Home & Taste of Home Light. MY pet peeve is boxed dinners. I do love simple and quick though. I have 3 grown sons, one is in last semester of college, one is married and a new baby is on the way, so I will be grandma in January. My daughter-in-law hates to cook, they order prepared food off the internet, that makes me crazy. ha. I love animals, but right now only have one dog. A bloodhound. She is so loveable, I would recommend this breed to anyone as long as you have patience, but they are one of the most loving breeds out there.My married son has 3 lab. retrievers,a baby will be easy after those 3 monsters, as I lovingly called them when they were pups. My oldest son has a Rottwieller. I have had 3 Rotts, they have all pasted, buy they are a really great breed. They are so smart and loveable, I guess that's why people who chose to make them bad, can do so, all they want to do is please their owners. My real passion is shoes, shoes, shoes. I also love jewelry, but shoes, shoes, shoes,!!!!! Update I am finally grandma to the prettiest baby girl ever. She was born on Jan. 15, her name is Mariah. She is perfect!
