Recipe: Beef Pie

Believe it or not, we have some male “Mamas” out there! This recipe was submitted by Michael from Waterloo, Illinois. He says that this is an old, old recipe so it HAS to be good if it has stood the test of time. Thank you Michael! Sounds super, super easy. The cook time is a bit longer, so this might be better used on a day when you are working from home, or during a weekend night when you have more time. It also sounds a bit sweet given the quantity of beef to brown sugar, so you may want to adjust that given your family’s tastes. THANK YOU AGAIN MICHAEL!!!

Recipe: Lemon IceBox Pie

This dessert recipe sounds great and perfect for the summer – that is if you live in a part of the country where the summers are warm.  It was submitted by Mama M from San Francisco, CA who says it’s very fast but probably not that good for you.   That’s OK Mama S.   I think life is all about balance!!!   Thank you for the submission!
