Favorite slow-cooker recipe

Hey quilty buds! How are you doing on this fine day? It's rainy and chilly here, but cozy and warm inside! Did you have a nice weekend? I got some work done on Rose's quilt...this is my favorite block so far...
I have about 5 blocks to go, then I have a bunch of setting triangles and such to make. It's not the easiest project, but I like it because it's challenging. Plus all the cute little 30s prints are so cheerful.
A new cookbook arrived in the mail today from Gooseberry Patch!
I have another recipe in this one. My twin sister Karen gave it to me several years ago, and it is a staple in both of our houses. Definitely my favorite slow cooker recipe of all time.
Try it, I know you'll like it! Only, if at all possible, use the red wine, not the beef broth. It adds just so much flavor!
I'm going to go do some Wii Fit now. I don't think I've been on that thing since November, aack! Time to shed my winter coat!

    I love anything in the slow cooker. Your stew sounds wonderful for a day like today. It's rainy/snowy here. I'm so ready for spring!

  3. Cute cute! I can't wait to see the quilt finished. Thanks for the recipe. I'll have to try it.

  4. Yeah! You are just so famous, Jen! :) I love that recipe too and cook it all the time. Rebecca calls it Mommy's Yummy Beef Soup. Cute, right? And Rose's quilt is off to an awesome start.

  5. Yours is a cheerful place Jen, kids here love your colors, but I love your slow cooker recipe, I find it simple to prepare really! Your guts and positiveness will make your quilt beautifully finished. You're awesome and contagious, I'm feeling cheerful! Thanks for sharing Jen!

  6. I still have to use your suggestion of apple butter and pork loin in the slow cooker. How much again do you use of the fruit butter?

  7. Truly a rich stew for everyone, love that recipe Jen. Hope you post more springtime recipes that we all could enjoy as well. They're basically healthy and affordable. Keep up!
