Old-Fashioned Beef Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2014
It's a good recipe. I make mine like my grandmother's though. Cut or buy beef the same, but cut the onion into quarters (they separate and get so sweet and flavorful). Brown flour covered meat in the oil. I do not shake off excess flour - it helps make the gravy. I don't use mushrooms. (NO mushrooms in stew! lol)..when brown add 2 cups water & beef broth (ready made cubes or powder like Herb-Ox)and quartered onions and a couple of cloves of garlic (you don't need to mince it integrates into the gravy (.. add celery if you must - I just don't like it).. lower heat to simmer and cook for an hour or so. Meanwhile cut potato into bite size chunks; cut carrots (or buy baby carrots and use whole) into chunks. Add to pot after an hour or so and simmer for another hour. Then add peas and corn (cooked according to directions (like Frozen Birds Eye Corn and Birds Eye Peas. Cook a few minutes until heated through. If gravy needs to thicken add butter & flour rolled together ( roux) and cook a little longer. During cooking add pepper & salt to taste.

Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
Great recipie as is or you add a little more or less of that too taste. I have been making this as is for a while now. Most important part is mash egg yolks alone before adding any wet ingredients. It comes out so creamy. I always used to mash everything together, but doing just the yolks first is amazingly better. Thank you for the recipie.

Easy Yet Romantic Filet Mignon

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
It's a great recipie!! The steaks came out tender and very flavorful. Thank you! I didn't use the onion powder because I didn't have it, but it was so good! As for the reviewers who think they might use butter for this? The reason you shouldn't is that oil has a much higher resistence to burning in high heat (close to the broiler) than olive oil does. If you really want butter on your meat then melt some after and pour it on. If you cook with it, the meat will tend to burn on the outside.
