Welcome to my blog. My blogging journey began about in August 2009 as a photo-a-day blog which has since transitioned to combine my love of good food and photography. Today, using as many local and fresh ingredients as we can, my boyfriend and myself spend time researching recipes, making our own adaptations, cooking, taking photos, eating, and finally reflecting on all or part of the above listed process here. I hope you take the time to not only read and look at our photos, but please cook some of the recipes yourself. You are invited and encourage to leave feedback as we continue our culinary journey!

Slow Cooker Mushroom and Steak Stroganoff

D had never had a stroganoff recipe so I decided to make an attempt at one last week. I also wanted him to begin to understand the beauty and tastefulness of sour cream. (I love sour cream but he despises it, and I thought a stroganoff recipe would be a good way to include the creamy flavor but hide some of the sour taste he doesn't like.) I was right! The stroganoff was a success. One one of your snowy days this week, cook this recipe in your crock pot. It will warm you right up!

Slow Cooker Mushroom and Steak Stroganoff
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
2 lbs beef top round steak, cut into strips
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup water
1 packet onion mushroom soup mix
2 jars sliced mushrooms
minced fresh parsley
1/2 cup sour cream
egg noodles

In a large, resealable plastic bag combine the dry spices and flour. Add beef strips to the bag and shake the mixture to coat the beef. Transfer the beef strips into the crockpot.

In a bowl, combine the soup, water, and soup mix, pour over the beef, cover, and cook on low for 7 hours.

Stir in mushrooms, sour cream, and parsley. Stir. Cover and cook for 30 more minutes.

Cook egg noodles and serve stroganoff over noodles.
