Honey Onion Pot Roast (Crock Pot)



2 lbs of Pot Roast (your favorite cut!)
1 pkg of Au Ju seasoning
1 pkg of brown gravy
2 1/2 cups of water
1/2 cup of Honey
1/2 tablespoon of minced garlic or 3 cloves of chopped fresh garlic
1 tablespoon of black pepper
1 tablespoon of flax seed oil (optional)
3 jalapenas (whole just cut at the ends - optional)
1 sweet onion chopped in large pieces
1 cup of carrots (add after 3 hours and at least 1 - 1/2 hrs prior to serving)
cheddar cheese or your choice for dipping sandwich


Mix everthing in the Crock Pot except the carrots and turn up on high. Should cook until meat is tender or approximately 6 hours on high . You can start the Crock Pot on high for 1 - 2 hours and then turn on low for 6+ hours until tender. You can add carrots anytime but I like to add them 3 hours before serving.

Serve meat hot with your favorite cheese on hard rolls, french or sour dough and use sauce for dipping. Baked potatoe or baked Yam as a side dish.

I like the potatoes separate from the Roast so it doesn't get the strong starchy or mushy mixture to it. If you have someone watching their carbs best to serve the potatoes on the side for those who could care less!

Tex-Mex Chicken Burrito Bowl

Tex-Mex Chicken Burrito Bowl Okay, I like to try different things, so I buy lots of food magazines for ideas! A very recent one this year 2023, Cooking Light magazine, had an assortment of different "power bowls" to make. I decided to try this one with chicken, but you can substitute any type of meat you would like in it, i.e. shredded beef, ground beef, and if you are daring, no meat substitutes! Well, that last one is not for me!  Below is the actual recipe I used. If you don't subscribe to Cooking Light, you are missing some great ideas of recipes for you and/or your family. When I saw this edition, I knew it was a game changer for me. I can take the recipe and modify it for the fussy eaters in my family and make it their own.  First, I made it "almost" like the recipe calls for to see what the results would be from everyone. My conclusion was, I loved it just the way it was, but not so with the others. So below is my suggestion on what to do so you don't

Morning Strawberry Protein Shake

Garden Strawberries So, I like strawberries, and it is the season for all of us back yard growers to start picking! I downsized my plot of plants, but I still have some to pick periodically as they ripen.  The local farms should be ready for the "you pick deals" from June - mid July now! There are quite a few growers in the PNW to choose from. A local favorite is the  Biringer Farm , you can check out their website for more information.  After, of course, the morning coffee, I will make my breakfast shake. It consists of one cup of unsweetened almond milk, unsweetened coconut milk, or unsweetened oat milk. Normally when watching calories, I will opt for almond or coconut milk. I also like at times to mix all three to make one full cup!  I will add one scoop of whey, my morning vitamin, and one cup of frozen strawberries. Sometimes I will add a frozen banana or frozen blueberries. My favorite is just using strawberries. I blend this for about a minute to make sure everything i

Cooking at Home During Quarantine

I like cooking, but I can't wait to be able to go out, sit at a table in a restaurant, order, eat, and enjoy family and friends. The only thing I won't like is the bill, but it will be so worth it. During this quarantine, if you have the funds and can help out your favorite local eateries, do so. They are struggling and take-out orders can help keep them in business.
