I'm a foodie

Foodie is basically a nice way to say I sure do love food. I love making it, planning when to make it, and eating it! With the world at my fingertips I am amazed at how many recipes I can find online. This Sunday we had Beef Stroganoff over pasta, green beans, and cauliflower patties.

Here are the recipes:

Beef Stroganoff
(Which I modified and didn't cook in the crock pot. I also didn't have an onion )

1-2 lbs. Stew Meat
1 tsp. Salt
Pepper, to taste
1 Onion, sliced
Garlic Powder, to taste
1 T. Worcestershire Sauce
1 T. Ketchup
1 1/2 C. Beef Broth
1/3 C. Flour
1/2 C. Water
8 oz. Fresh Sliced Mushrooms (Canned!)
1/2 C. Sour Cream

Put stew meat into your crock pot and sprinkle chopped onion, salt, pepper and garlic powder over top.  In a small bowl combine the broth, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce.  Pour over top of meat.  Cook on high 4-5 hours. (You can also cook it on low heat for 7-8 hours but I feel like the meat becomes overly tender and falls apart when small pieces of meat are cooked for that long.)  After about 4 hours, whisk together the flour and water and pour into the crock pot.  Stir into the meat mixture to thicken juices.  Add mushrooms, cover and cook 30 minutes longer.  Stir in sour cream just before serving and ladle over top of cooked rice or pasta.

Cauliflower Cakes

1 head cauliflower
2 large eggs
1/2 c cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 c panko
1/2 t cayenne pepper (I used this amount and am bummed I did. It was a bit too spicy for us and overtook the cauliflower taste so we tasted a lot of pepper. Therefore, I topped it with sour cream and more cheese.)
olive oil

Cut cauliflower into florets & cook in boiling water until tender about 10 minutes. Drain. Mash the cauliflower while still warm. Stir cheese, eggs, panko, cayenne & salt to taste.

Coat the bottom of a griddle or skillet with olive oil over medium-high heat. Form the cauliflower mixture into patties about 3 inches across. Cook until golden brown & set, about 3 minutes per side. Keep each batch warm in the oven while you cook the rest. Makes 8 pancakes
