Third Thursday Blog Hop: What is one of your favorite homemade recipes?

I have a confession.  I’ve become hooked on watching the Food Network.  Now I’m not much of a television watcher at all, but I’ve come to enjoy blending my 40 minutes each day on the treadmill with watching Food Network shows.

I got so inspired about a week ago that I made my family Anne Burrell’s recipe for Beef Bourguignon (modified from Julia Child’s original recipe).  We loved it!

All that to explain why I’m excited about today’s Third Thursday Blog Hop.  We get to share our favorite homemade recipes!

Here’s how a blog hop works. You’ll find a place below where it says “Click here to enter your link and view this Linky Tools list.” Our Hearts at Home bloggers are adding their links to mine today so you can click on the link below and see a whole list of Hearts at Home bloggers and a link to their favorite homemade recipe!

It’s a great way to do a little blog surfing and be encouraged by some other moms.  I’m thinking that I’m going to be inspired for a whole weekend of yummy cooking!

Here’s one of our family’s favorite homemade recipes:

Crock-Pot Italian Beef

3 lbs chuck or arm roast
1 cup water
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp garlic salt, minced garlic, or fresh garlic
1 Tbsp Oregano
5 Bay leaves
1/2 tsp. red pepper
1 tsp salt (if you didn’t use garlic salt above)

Let all ingredients cook in your crock pot at least 5 hours or until tender.  Shred beef using two forks.  Serve on hoagie or steak buns.  Enjoy!

    The link up isn’t working.

  4. Ronel says:

    Sounds like a good recipe!! BTW the link isn’t working so I can’t add my blog *sigh*

  5. Having trouble with the link too!

  6. Glad to know it’s not just me. Hopefully it will be up and working soon. Last month’s was a lot of fun.

  7. Link is not working, waiting for the new Linky tool. I noticed that the Link is gone from last month. It may be beneficial to all if we are able to close the link up but still have it available so those surfing the internet can find all of us…

    If you cannot wait to read my favorite recipe you can find it here:

    a latte of blessings & giggles

  9. Love the blog hop idea.
    How do we find out the topics for future months so we have more time to think about it?

    Sounds so good, Jill, and so simple! I’m going to have a house-full of visitors in the next week, and I’m definitely going to try this. Thanks a bunch!

    Hey, everyone! Love your blog, Jill! I visited a coffee shop this winter that offered “chicken pot pie soup” served w/broken pieces of baked pie crust (instead of crackers)… and it was delicious!I tried this recipe and it was perfect, but it can be simplified with satisfying results, too.

    I also take some guilty pleasure in the Food Network. Paula Deen is my favorite and as heavy and butter-ridden as her meals are, they are sure good in the moment! I just made Italian beef last week. I’ll have to try this one next time! P.S. Enjoy the stuffed peppers. It sounds weird to put jelly in them, but they really are awesome.
