What you're saying..

Kudos and Plaudits to you! I have tried many of your recipes with success but I must say your Scrumptious Crock Pot Beef Stew was OUTSTANDING!!! I've made it many times since it appeared in the paper and each time it's a big hit and I love it even more (great leftover too).

I've learned to do all the prepping/chopping the night before so that all I have to do is the layering/assembling in the morning. I have upgraded a tad and use sirloin steak strips cut up when I can get them on sale......YUMMMMM!

So, thanks again for sharing your recipe. I know I'll be making this for eons to come!

A little bit of hashbrowns, a pound of hamburger and classic burger condiments means dinner in a new and different way.

Salami and Cheese Twirls

Salami and Cheese Twirls

They are rich and quite addictive, but watch how many you consume as each slice is about 150 calories. It is easy to eat one right after another until the whole loaf is gone.
