Cooking from Scratch

If there is anything that I have found just as rewarding as technology or writing it is cooking. I enjoy coming up with dishes that makes my family wonder what I am up to. Normally they come out decent and sometimes even really great! Take my homemade pierogi’s! Or my homemade noodles which for the first time ever making them they turned out great.

Today I am working on a new dish that I am not sure of but I hope it turns out? Especially after my wife paid her hard earned cash on the roast. But I am not thinking roast. Anyway here is today’s recipe.

  • One Beef Roast about 2-4 pounds should work
  • 6 cloves of garlic cut in half
  • Banana Peppers
  • 1 large onion cut up to slices
  • Season Salt
  • One bottle Italian dressing
  • Little cooking wine
  • Water
    _____________________________________________________________________
  • Take your roast and place it into a large baking pan.
  • Sprinkle your season salt onto the roast and rub it in.
  • Cut slits all over the roast and plug the holes with the garlic.
  • Toss all of your onions all over the roast.
  • Cover with a few Banana Peppers
  • Empty you bottle of Italian dress over and around the roast.
  • Pour a little cooking wine over the roast and the dressing.
  • Put enough water in the pan up to the sides on the roast. This is mainly to create a steaming effect.
  • Cover the baking pan with foil.
  • Turn your over on 350, we are going for the low and slow effect. Baking time will be until the meat falls apart.
  • My final plan is to break all of the roast up and place some onto a hoagie bun and sprinkle a little A1 onto the sandwich.______________________________________________________________________

I will serve this up with maybe some fries and a red wine for the drink.

I will let you know in my next post how it worked out and if the family likes it or not. I will also post some pictures so you can see the finished dish. ENJOY!

Good Old Home Cooking

I don’t feel that many families cook at home anymore. I think it is just to easy for everyone to stop on the way home for work and grab some kind of fast food. But with that we are making American kids fat and obese.

There is a show on TV called Diners, Dives and Drive Inn’s that I really enjoy. When I watch this show I look for meals that will be something different for our family. In a recent episode I watched as a cook made Chicken Pies. These are little pot pies.

So I took some time and roasted a chicken and made the Chicken Pies. They turned out great and my family loved them.

What I am telling everyone reading this blog that sometime and cook for your family.

Here is a picture of the little tasty pot pies.

Making A Home Cooked Meal

There are so many people I talk to or even watch that no longer cook at home. I don’t know how people on a limited budget eat out all of the time?

We enjoy cooking at home because you know what is in your food. We don’t really like cleaning up and I am sure many of you do not enjoy it either.

Today I found a recipe for sweet and sour chicken. As I was cooking it, I was complaining because it really was a ton of steps and you are mixing as you are trying to watch the chicken. In the end it was amazing! My wife finished the chicken as an evening snack.

Here is a picture of the dish cooking.
