Lots happening in the kitchen!

It's all happening too fast to document! I have been super busy with the baking business, I'm cranking out more cupcakes and scones than I can keep track of! Which means less blogging unfortunately. But when I do get a chance to make something that isn't going directly out for delivery, you bet I will be posting it on here.

I have some great and fun ideas for Halloween and plan to share some more Fall recipes and foods that will make your house warm and welcoming no matter what the temperature is outside!

Stay coming this weekend but hoping to post some more early next week!

Crockpot Vegetable Stew

Last week I broke out the crockpot to celebrate the arrival of Fall. Normally, the first thing I would make is Beef Stew. It is my husband's favorite. Except, last summer, he stopped eating meat! So I have made some adjustments. is everything you need to make a hearty vegetable stew!

Vegetable Juice, Water, Worchestershire Sauce, Oregano, Majoram, Bay Leaf, Onion, 2 medium potatoes, 1 can green beans, 1 can corn, 1 can green beans, 1 can carrots, salt

Pour 2 1/2 cups of vegetable juice into your measuring cup.

Then fill the rest (I have a 4 cup measuring cup) with water.

Add in 1 tsp. Worchestershire...

2 tsp. dried oregano...

1/2 tsp ground majoram, and the bay leaf. Put aside.

Cube up your potatoes, and slice up your onion.

Throw the potatoes in your crockpot

Next the onions.

Next the corn (drain first)

Carrots (drain these, too)

Then the green beans!

Pour your vegetable juice mixture over all the veggies

Mix it all up!

And throw the top on. Leave it for 6-8 hours. Your house will thank you.
