I didn’t have time to cook this weekend like I’d planned. I had visions of beef chili, homemade pizza and chocolate chip cookies dancing in my head. Work roped me in, however, and when I did swing by the grocery store to pick up a few things, every woman in town had decided that was the day to force her husband, kids and pet iguana into contributing to the weekly gathering of food.
In the absence of sharing my
culinary amazingness simple, down-home cooking that usually tastes pretty good if I’ve done the “please-make-this-turn-out-okay” dance, I’ve gathered up a couple recipes from the corners of the internet to share with you today.

This is probably one of my most favorite dishes ever, because I never have it. Elise at Simply Recipes has a tasty-looking recipe I’m itching to try. If I can ever hit the grocery store when there aren’t 90 hundred thousand people there.
Black Forest Pot Roast

I am a huge crockpot fan. There’s nothing better than tossing a bunch of goodies in the pot and coming home from a long day at work to a tantalizing kitchen. RecipeGirl.com has a recipe for Black Forest Pot Roast. While I love roast, I’m not an aficionado in the roast-cooking department. But how can you screw up crock pot roast? Especially one that looks as good as this one does?
