Crock Pot BBQ Beef



Crock Pot BBQ Beef

I grew up around a lot of BBQ.  I’m kind of a BBQ snob.  For something that hasn’t been cooked in a smoker, this is still a fantastic piece of meat.



Caprese Chicken

This is so good I’ve made it twice in the last couple weeks.  I haven’t bothered to slice the tomatoes in half.  The dish still cooks fine, but the tomatoes take forever to cool.



Maybe I don’t get it…


BBQ Potatoes

Maybe I’m stupid or something, but this did not go well at all.  They were bland and undercooked.  I doubled the time for a couple potatoes and they still didn’t get done.

Happy birthday, boyfriend!



Raspberry Swirled Lemon Cheesecake

It was my boyfriend’s birthday a couple weeks ago.  He doesn’t like regular cake, so I searched Pinterest for the perfect cheesecake recipe.  

Things went really well for my first attempt using a springform pan.  I felt like the cookie crust needed a little bit more butter.  My cheesecake ended up having more of a no bake consistency, so I think the filling could use a little bit more flour and a slightly longer cook time.  It also ended up having a really strong lemon flavor, so if I made it again I would use less lemon.  That might be a personal preference.
