Here’s another great cookie recipe!

My Colleen is an excellent baker and this recipe is one of her grandchildren’s favorites. I kinda like it, too!

The cookies are bite-sized ones with a buttery, melt in your mouth taste. Yummy!

We’re not sure where this recipe came from as it’s from the late 70s to early 80s. We know that the recipe came with cookie press from the timeframe.

Let’s make some cookies!

Pressure Cooker Beef Veggie Soup

Tags

, , , , ,

We were visiting Gary and Trish in January 2019 at their home in Minnesota. It gets a bit on the cool side there at that time of year.

Gary made this soup for us. Man, it was so tasty, perfect for the chilling weather, and it was fast to prepare. Since that visit, we’ve made it a few more times and it’s just as good as the first time we ate it.

The recipe that follows is basically unchanged from what Gary provided to us. Yes, it’s odd for us to not made several changes to any given recipe, but this one is just excellent the way it is.

Fair warning; this makes a fair amount that will feed 6 to 8 with no problem. So if you’re cooking for two, go ahead and make it, but have your storage containers ready to save the leftovers for another day as this soup freezes very well.

One last thing before we head into the recipe, this one came from The Foodie Eats. Here is a direct link to the recipe on their site

Mushroom-Red Wine Sauce

We do love a great grilled steak. Adding a nice mushroom sauce to it, gives it just a bit more flavor to make it even tastier.

Here’s a second pizza dough recipe and it’s one that we prefer over the Green Mountain version that I posted here. This recipe hasn’t been changed from the original one (very odd for us!)

While browsing food items in the Flipboard app, we came across this one from the Seattle Times and decided to give it a try. We enjoyed the ease of making, how it bakes in our pizza oven, the great chew and taste. It’s perfect in our opinion.

This recipes comes from our friends at Allrecipes. Here’s the link to the original version. Yes, our version has a few changes that we believe makes it even better.

This recipe comes from our friends at Green Mountain Grills. We purchased our grill in 2019 and love using it. One accessory we purchased was the pizza oven attachment. I reviewed it in the pizza sauce recipe. We love the sauce and their pizza dough recipe is pretty good. If you want to see the recipes from their site, follow this link to the pizza oven attachment manual and then scroll towards the end of the PDF.

The youngest of my three sisters, Tracy, has gone on an Instant Pot (IP) bender of late. Don’t get me wrong, we enjoy using our IP just like Tracy! I just like kidding her.

For the 2019 edition of the family recipe collection, she’s provided a couple of IP recipes. This one is from the Two Sleevers website. Here’s the direct link to this recipe.
