Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy
I've made this on a couple of occasions and I love it, especially when chilly fall days set in. I've made it as is with great results, I've doubled it with no issues and I've tweeked it to my particular tastes and each time it comes out great! In my most recent version, I changed up the spices a bit and included some smoked paprika and a teeny bit of chili powder and thyme. I also added about a tablespoon of my favorite hot sauce in with the eggs and beat them to mix it all together before adding it to the meat mixture. Rather than adding the onions with the meat to cook, I dice them and add them to the drippings with 8oz. of chopped mushrooms and 1-2 tablespoons of butter. Instead of sherry, I used Madiera wine. Increase the flour by 50% and after adding the broth and wine, I add 1/2-3/4 cups of milk. The little bit of extra richness is wonderful.

Slow Cooker Shredded Beef for Tacos and Burritos
I think it's a shame to make this using a taco seasoning mix (hence the 3 rating) and make my own blend of spices to add more than a salty flavor. Also, I shred the beef right in the crock pot, or even in a 9X13 pan, to make prep a lot less messy. You can't beat a crock pot dinner!

Turkey and Yam Spicy Tacos
I really loved these tacos! I made a few modifications: I used a 1 lb. of ground turkey, increased the spices, used 3/4 cups of the salsa verde and served it on corn tortillas that I toasted over an open flame. YUM! I also did a version were I skipped the tortillas altogether and served this with regular salsa in addition to the tomatillo salsa over shredded lettuce as a taco salad. That was also excellent!
