Crockpot Beef Stroganoff

My mom always made beef stroganoff with leftover steak meat and I never seemed to really like the flavor much.  My hubby is allergic to mushrooms so this is something I stayed away from...BUT...when I saw this on pinterest, I thought I'd give it a try. 

It was DELICIOUS and super easy!

My substitutions-
No mushrooms (although I would have added sliced fresh mushrooms)
Used cream of celery soup instead of cream of mushroom
Added double the worcheshire sauce

I made it with 2 pounds meat and was able to freeze 1/2 of it for when the baby arrives- Her hint of freezing before you add the cream cheese worked perfectly.

A New Cook...Blog?


Those of you who would like to join us this time around...we are going to try something different for the next few months.  It seems that online recipes are all the rage, especially finding great ones on  (If you're not on there, go check it out!) 

So, instead of starting a new traditional "cookbook"- how about we cook two new recipes we find online each week and blog about them.

Make sure you note the website where you found it and if possible, copy the actual recipe into the blog posting so we can all easily make it ourselves. 

If it's a recipe that's an old family favorite, even better!  Please put the recipe in the blog posting for us all to enjoy.

We think this will be fun as we venture into Holiday cooking :)

Happy Blogging!
