    These Easy French Dip Beef Sandwiches will melt in your mouth! They’re so easy to make and your kitchen will smell fantastic! It’s the best French Dip Beef Sandwich ever!   Okay friends, let’s talk about how easy it is to make French Dip Beef Sandwiches. My very first time tasting a French Dip Beef Sandwich was in a restaurant. My son actually ordered it and of course, I had to ask for a bite. One bite just took me over the edge. I couldn’t believe that I’ve never tasted this delicious sandwich before. I looked at my husband and said, oh I need to make this at home. -And, I most certainly did. Many recipes that I found online for French Dip Beef require a beef chuck roast but they required a roast being slow-cooked so  I thought, “who wants to wait 5-6 hours for it to be slow-cooked?”…

    A Special message of Thanksgiving Just the thought of the holidays arriving soon gets me so excited. Ekk! Can you tell?I can’t wait! I’m in love with this time of the year. It brings a smile to my face just thinking about my family sitting around the table together at Thanksgiving.   Like many, Thanksgiving is truly a time of gathering and giving thanks for all our loved ones and especially the food that we’re about to receive. As you guys might not have known, last Thanksgiving was the last holiday that I got to spend with my mom before she passed away. It was the last big holiday that my family and siblings spent together. Even although my family lived close by to our mother, I, however, did not. So on my end, it took some planning and saving to get my own family there for this special holiday.…

This year, we will be celebrating our first Christmas in our new home and I can’t even begin to say how excited that I am. Christmastime has always been an exciting holiday season from me and my family. But there is one thing that I dread and it’s being in the kitchen more than I have to. Let’s be honest, it’s never fun when you’re missing out on creating new memories with your family members. So that’s why I started to spend less time in the kitchen as much as possible. Especially during Christmas. One of my…
