We’re back from Florida! Sam and I got home yesterday and we’re slowly getting back into our routine. I’m going to post about the trip with some pictures soon but in the meantime, I thought I’d post links to some of my favorite recipes that I make again and again.
I follow this recipe exactly except I use red, orange or yellow peppers instead of green because I don’t like green peppers. I also skip the onion powder in the seasoning because I never have any.
I use white beans instead of chickpeas, skip the green onions and add extra carrots. I also usually double this recipe so we have leftovers. It freezes well.
I add extra carrots and celery, use dried parsley and mini ravioli or tortellini for the noodles. If I don’t have seasoned salt, I just use regular salt. I often use frozen chicken breasts and cook on low for 8-10 hours.
Sometimes I use sweet potatoes in place of regular potatoes and only 1.5 pounds beef stew meat. I prefer to cook it on low in the slow cooker for 10-12 hours.
The BEST chocolate cake I’ve ever tasted. I use dark chocolate instead of semi-sweet, vanilla bean paste, canola oil in place of vegetable, whole buttermilk (no substitutions) and I weigh the ingredients. I also bake in 3-9″pans. I don’t make the ganache frosting but make a regular chocolate buttercream.
