My favorite things to cook
Dishes that are healthy, fun, delicious, and gluten-free.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom baked a lot when I was a child, and she always made dinner from scratch no matter how long she had been at work or how busy she was. Convenience foods were not her style, and they aren't mine either.

Beef Stew VI
My husband and I both really enjoyed this stew. I tweaked the recipe a little bit. First of all, I cut it in half, because it's just the two of us. Instead of water and bouillon, I used a carton of beef stock. I also seasoned the meat while it was searing, with salt and pepper. Instead of fresh vegetables, I used a bag of frozen stew vegetables (potatoes, pearl onions, carrots and celery) and cut back on the cooking time by about 20 minutes overall. The meat still turned out nice and tender, the veggies were a bit overcooked so I might wait longer to add them next time if I use frozen again. I also increased the amount of cornstarch - and glad I did too. Even though I halved the recipe, I used 1 Tbsp cornstarch mixed with 1 Tbsp water. The consistency of the gravy came out perfect. I also added about 1 tsp of gravy master and a bit more salt to taste once it was finished cooking. Delicious - would definitely make this again!

Awesome Red Pepper Hummus Dip
Would love to say I didn't change a thing but...the raw garlic is too overwhelming. I roasted my own, along with my own red peppers and, with the addition of some fresh-ground black pepper, this was fantastic!
