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. It’s definitely a pot roast, but has some goulash-like qualities in the way it’s finished. Goulash is more of a stew, but this

Cast Iron Skillet Chicken Pot Pie

This is another recipe of several that I’ll be posting using the all-purpose homemade dough. My wonderful boyfriend gets the credit for this recipe and for putting up with me having to pause to write everything down and take a million photos! This recipe is great because you only need half of the dough that

Red Wine Pot Roast

Pot roast meat with potatoes and carrots and gravy in a bowl

I was hosting a holiday party for my horseback riding club last weekend, and I needed a recipe that would be a crowd-pleaser but still relatively easy to make. Braising is one of my favorite cooking methods, so a pot roast was perfect. I was cooking for 20 or so people, so my go-to of

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

We had a rainy, chilly day last weekend. I needed to go out and run some errands, but I also had a couple of house projects I needed to start. A friend asked me to bring tools over to help her hang some things in her house, so I did that too. I wanted something

I was invited to a pie-themed party this weekend and wanted to make something unique. I was torn between a beef bourguignon pot pie and a short rib pot pie. I decided to go with the short rib pie because I knew I could do the short ribs well. I decided to incorporate some saffron

Chicken Noodle Soup

Chicken noodle soup with peas, carrots, and green beans in a bowl

I came down with a bad cold a few weeks ago, and thankfully it only lasted for a few days. My wonderful boyfriend made me tea with lemon, honey, and whiskey, which I swear is better than any cough syrup out there. Being sick of course also called for chicken noodle soup. This also reheated

Lemon Pepper Chicken Kabobs

Chicken kabobs with peppers and onions on a platter

Grilling is a great way to end the week. I made these last night for dinner, and a friend came by for a late dinner and some cocktails and enjoyed some of these, too. The marinade is very simple, and if you don’t have a lemon pepper seasoning, you could easily make it with lemon

BBQ Chicken Salad Melts

BBQ Chicken Salad Melt (sandwich)

My boyfriend and I grilled bone-in chicken breasts with BBQ sauce the other night, and I took home some leftovers. I was going to make a chicken salad, but I wanted to do a warm sandwich. The chicken salad I made would be good cold, too, especially in a wrap. I’m going to be adding

Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

I made these lettuce wraps for a light dinner the other night. The filling is similar to the sweet & spicy shrimp, but it’s not spicy. They would have been good with some crispy rice noodles. You could add some sriracha to these to give them a little kick. The flavor was great, but unfortunately
