Fried Onion Petals

Grandma’s Goulash Pot Roast

Spaetzle with beef, carrots, and potatoes in a gravy-like sauce

I love my grandmother’s goulash recipe, which I’ve actually never posted. This pot roast is inspired by her goulash, as is this beef stew. I had a hard time naming this recipe.

Le Creuset vs. Lodge Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven {Review}

I’ve always been a huge Le Creuset fan. My mom has a complete set of the Le Creuset cookware with the wooden handles. I grew up using these. Once I grew up and moved out on my own, I wanted a Le Creuset dutch oven so badly. I was ecstatic when my dad bought me

This chili was perfect for the snow day we had here a couple of weeks ago. I let it simmer on the stove for several hours, but it could also be done in a slow cooker. The beef was super tender, and the chili had a lot of flavor. I’ve included instructions for either method below.
