Last week I received a sample package of Weber's Chicago Steak Seasoning. Today I decided to slow cook a roast. So I combined the 2. I rubbed the roast (round) with olive oil, rubbed on the seasoning, seared on all sides, covered and slow cooked for about 3 hrs. Juicy! Tender! Great Taste!

These are so simple and so chewy! I made a package of brownies according to the package but added about 3/4 cup of chocolate covered peanuts and about 3/4 cup of mini-marshmallows. Simply bake according to package and that's it! Think With Your Taste Buds!

I was pretty busy this weekend putting down a new floor in my living room so I didn't have time to do much cooking but since everyone at work expects a new dish on Monday I didn't want to let them down. So...this is what I came up with. I love sweet and salty so I decided to drizzle white chocolate over Bugles with a few pretzels and cashews added. This is PERFECT! It's simple to make and the kids can even help. You simply pour your Bugles and whatever else you want to add, into a large bowl. Melt your white chocolate, drizzle it over the Bugles and stir until evenly coated. Cool and you have the perfect treat with a sweet and salty taste that I can't get enough of.
This can be done with milk chocolate but I promise you the taste isn't as good as you get when using the white chocolate.
Changes - Instead of the pretzels and cashews, add whatever salty or non-salty snack items you might want. This would be delicious with pecans and I think using butterscotch instead of white chocolate would probably be pretty good too. Just play with this one and Think With Your Taste Buds.

If you want a really great book to read, then I recommend He Kan't Kill Your Future by Sharquent Webster. This book is the author's own story about her life through drugs, abuse and finally being rescued. Read my review by going to A Book and A Dish. Also, you'll find the author's tips creating the perfect BBQ.

My idea for this dish came to me when I found that I had a package of McCormick Recipe Inspirations. The recipe on the package was actually for apple pork chops but I decided to "Think With My Taste Buds" and create something different using the herbs/spice included in the package. And I couldn't have chosen a better piece of meat to work with than the pork tenderloin. It picked up all of the flavors, it was juicy and tender and my kitchen has had a wonderful smell all day.

This review is from: Stir, Laugh, Repeat (Kindle Edition)Now here is a lady who loves cheese as much as I do and is not afraid to use it. In Stir, Laugh, Repeat, Martha Cheves has compiled recipes based on down to earth cooking, perfected with patience. Her shortcuts make sense and more than once I slapped my head, thinking - why didn't I think of that.
Her personal notes about the recipes add to the fun and I have already started using some of her "TIPS". This would be a perfect gift for the bride to be. I can see it in a bridal shower basket of basic essentials. But I also see it in the library of someone like me who has been married for over 50 years and always looking for some wonderful, quick meals with a new twist - good old southern cooking. The new twist for me - I'm a New England 'girl'. My first cooking adventure with Martha will be the Salmon Puffs. I recommend Stir, Laugh, Repeat to anyone looking for a simpler way to make old favorites without losing the down home feel.

This is a simple casserole that uses Rotel and taco seasoning. You can heat this up by using the hot Rotel and/or hot taco seasoning. I used the mild. You can use just about any type of paste that you want. I used elbow mac. You can also use any cheese you want. I used a Mexican blend. The leftovers, if you have any, heat up quite well in the microwave and it also freezes well so you can double the recipe and freeze one. To view the full recipe go to Martha's Recipe Cabinet.
