Weekend Cooking...

Our weekend was full of hanging out at home and cooking. The kids helped out with all the meals . Isabella wanted me to make something yummy that included her carrots that she grew..

Here they are.. Tiny cute carrots...
We decided on Beef Stew..

Here is my Bella working away....
So you should find things that make cooking fun ..

Like playing with your food and making shapes..We decided a heart would be the best choice..

There you go..we made Beef stew..
Here is the recipe I find to be family friendly...
I don't ever really share recepis but all my 3 kids love it .


  • 2 pounds stew beef
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups water

  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Dash ground allspice or ground cloves
  • 3 large carrots, sliced
  • 3 ribs celery, chopped

Brown meat in hot oil. Add water, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, bay leaves, onion, salt, sugar, pepper, paprika, and allspice. Cover and simmer 1 1/2 hours. Remove bay leaves and garlic clove. Add carrots and celery. Cover and cook 30 to 40 minutes longer. To thicken gravy, remove 2 cups hot liquid. Using a separate bowl, combine 1/4 cup water and cornstarch until smooth. Mix with a little hot liquid and return mixture to pot. Stir and cook until bubbly.
