Stews and soups are wonderful in the winter time and the meal that my family has been indulging in lately. This stew recipe is hearty and rich, yet easy to make. If you don’t have a dutch oven you could use a heavy pot or adapt this recipe for the crock pot.

Tri-Tip Roast

My husband and I recently went to a wedding in Napa and had the pleasure of dining at Ad Hoc, which was amazing. We had their roasted tri-tip and vowed to find a similar recipe. Tri-tip is the cut of meat from the bottom section of the what is considered to be sirloin and is usually barbecued. However this recipe roasts the tri-tip slowly and is amazing. I recently served it to my in-laws and it was one of my easiest and most delicious meals yet.

Sloppy Joes

I know sloppy joes remind people of middle school lunches, but I think they deserve a revised second look. This sloppy joe recipe is amazing and full of different vegetables and rich flavors, so kids and adults will enjoy it alike. I like to serve the sloppy joes on broiled or grilled thickly sliced sourdough, instead of the traditional hamburger bun.
