Our oven stopped working just after Christmas. We've replaced the ignitor and the thermostat and it's still not working. It will likely be summer before we can start looking for a new one. *sigh*  In the meantime we've had to rely on recipes we could cook on the stove or in the slowcooker. I've spent a bit of time going through some of my recipes to see which ones that go in the oven could be adjusted to work on the stove or in the crockpot. I've also been combing the recipe sites for new ones.

I found a couple really good beef stew recipes so I thought I'd share. The first one can be left on the stove to cook on a low heat. The second can be done in a crockpot/slowcooker as long as you brown the meat on the stove then add everything to the crockpot.

I have been completely sucked in by DragCave and am obsessed with my dragons. :)

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!


I'm also trying to get ready for Christmas. *sigh* I'm excited, but...not, at the same time. This time of year is always impossibly stressful and it just get worse every year. But I have fun decorating and baking and wrapping presents.

Since I mentioned Twilight in the Fannish Friday 5 the other day, I thought I'd go ahead and say a little bit more about it. The books were good (for what they are). IMO, they aren't OMG!!!111!!!! THE BEST THING EVER WRITTEN!!!!!! But they were good. Keep in mind they are tween/teen books and as such, very light reads (It took me 6 days to read all 4 books). The movie however, was awful. The casting was bad, the script was bad...it was just bad. Really bad.


We've been looking for a new recipe to use sweet italian sausage in. We finally found one and tried it tonight. It was actually quite good.

Cake

Tomorrow (today? 6/13) is my best friend's birthday. I'm baking a cake that I've never made before and making frosting that I've never made before. Joy! The cake is a Princeton Orange Cake and the frosting is an orange Mousseline Buttercream.





I like baking, I really do. But two recipes I've never made and having to do them at the same time? Not so much fun. It looks like the cake is cool. I have to go make the frosting now.


Later: The frosting didn't come out right. Somehow I knew it wouldn't.  I made a basic buttercream frosting instead and substituted orange juice for the milk and vanilla. I also added food coloring to make it orange colored.

[personal profile] elistaire asked me how I learned to cook and what I like to make most in my previous post. Since  there is a recipe I've been meaning to post, I decided to post the recipe and answer the question at the same time. :)

I learned to cook by watching my mother and my great-grandmother cook. I've also read many cookbooks and watched lots of cooking shows.

I don't really have one recipe that I make more than anything else. I like to try new recipes. However, I do all of the baking in the house and there is one recipe that is delicious (but very difficult to make).


The other recipe I was meaning to post...

From the Los Angeles restaurant Table 8 (Recipe from Oprah.com)
