Hi everyone! I have been keeping myself busy lately with the bounty of my garden. My tomatoes actually decided to turn red this year so I figured it was about time I teach myself to can. Yay! The purpose of this blog is to keep a record for my own safe keeping, get ideas and tips for future… MORE

Penne with Pancetta, Tuna, and White Wine
If you use the mushrooms this sauce is not dry. They let off a lot of liquid as they cooked. I had to sub lime for lemon and bacon for the Pancetta. I cooked the bacon in a little cayenne and brown sugar to add more flavor. I was unsure about the lime substitute but it worked very well. Try adding the citrus zest if you are worried about it being bland. I garnished with crumbled feta. That also added more flavor. Fresh basil or parsley would brighten this dish up also. My sauce was rather thin so I added some reserved cooking water from the pasta. A nice combination of simple ingredients that results in a fairly elegant dish.

Slow Cooker Green Beans, Ham and Potatoes
This was so good and so easy! I used russet potatoes and a leftover very meaty hambone. I threw everything in together. Hambone first, then potatoes, then green beans, then liquid ingredients with a splash of cider vinegar and crushed red pepper. On top I added 2 ears of corn on the cob cut into thirds. Cooked on low for 6 hours. Next time I will add bacon grease as suggested by another reviewer. These would be excellent with buttermilk biscuits and honey or homemade bread with butter.

Neat Sloppy Joes
Yum! I used fresh garlic instead of garlic powder(didn't have any), bell pepper instead of celery(was out) and added a dash of liquid smoke. Will make again. Served with mac and cheese, pickles, potato chips and onion dip for an easy weeknight dinner.
