I hope you all had a wonderful & festive St. Patrick’s Day. We opted for our usual Friday night dinner of pizza, but on Saturday, I made Corned Beef and Cabbage in the slow cooker (for the first time – we’ve never made it or tried it before) and it was a huge hit! Since I had never made it before, I didn’t want to experiment with making my own recipe, so I used Foodie Crush’s recipe and it was perfect! I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to try it for the first time. I made my corned beef in the slow cooker, but there are also instructions for making it in the instant pot for anyone who is interested.
Also, happy first day of spring, everyone! We got our first 60 degree day over the weekend and it was glorious! Josh and I noticed that several of our neighbor’s fruit trees (plum and apple) are beginning to blossom. After a long, cold, weary winter…those petals are such a welcome sight. Are you excited about spring? I’ll rephrase…how excited are you for spring?!
Fancy roasts in Dutch ovens served with wine and music by candlelight are great...but sometimes you just need to get a decent meal on the table! This 3 ingredient roast is that meal, and this busy mom loves it!
This Tres Leches cake, while perfect for Cinco de Mayo (or just because), is one of those cakes that is easy to make and can also easily be made several days in advance. In fact, making it one day in advance even makes the cake taste better!
