These Weekly Menu recipes allow you to get out of that same ol’ recipe rut and try some delicious and easy dishes! This week I highly recommend making the Slow Cooker Mocha Beef Tips & Mushrooms, Ziti Peperonata with Hot Sausages, and the Ziti Peperonata with Hot Sausages!
Happy Sunday TKW Family and Happy Birthday week to me! My birthday is later on in the week and I’m excited about it.
Well okay, I’m not so excited about getting another year older, but that I’m celebrating it in our new home in Arizona.
I’m so thrilled that AZ is where we call home now. The sun, the gorgeous blue skies, and yes, even the sweltering heat… I’m just so at peace here. We both are honestly.
East Coast Hours
I’d say the only rough thing about moving here (aside from leaving our chosen family back in Pittsburgh) is I’m still working the East Coast hours. I mean, on one hand, it’s nice as I’m done early in the day here however that means I’m back to getting up at the butt crack o’ dawn. This means I’m in bed early most weeknights. However, I’m so used to working crazy hours that this is just part of the norm for me I suppose.
The adjustment will be for Mr. Fantabulous and how I make our foods. No more lunch or breakfasts together. Dinner this week, as you’ll see below in the menu, will be a bit easier for us. Meaning slow cooker-type things or casseroles.

TKW On YouTube
As I mention every Sunday, I have a YouTube channel. I’d LOVE and appreciate it if you subscribed there. I’m brand spanking new there and with the millions of TKW Family members out there, I really need to build up my subscription base there.
Not only am I creating videos for my newer recipes but I’m also going back and creating them for my most popular recipes.
Since I have 1000+ recipes posted, it’ll take me a little bit to get them all done but I’ll get there.
My goal is to do more longer-type 10-15 minute cooking videos where I talk to you while cooking – think TV show but candid.
Candid in the sense of – I scrape the whole bowl out (no, we don’t waste stuff in my house), I’ll get batter on my face, flour on my chest, and laugh at myself because I dropped/tripped/or just messed up what I was trying to say.
You’ll get me as me – true authentic Lori
Did you make a recipe? Leave a blog comment!
So why do I ask this? Two reasons:
- Honest feedback is appreciated. It helps me learn and grow.
- Most folks read the comments first before they decide on making a recipe or not.
We all visit blogs looking for delicious items and inspiration. What I find (and you should as well) the MOST USEFUL thing is the comments that people leave. Honest feedback, good or bad but respectful please, on a recipe.
You can give suggestions on what you’d tweak or a spin you put on it. Heck or just tell me that you loved it! Like how to make vegan, keto, or not use mushrooms.
This is how I grow and become better on here and it gives you guys real feedback. The absolute most critical thing you can do for me is to leave a comment on the blog recipe post.
When I look at someone else’s recipe I read the comments as to me, that’s honest feedback. So when you make a recipe of mine or plan on making it, leave a comment on the post. I, and everyone else that goes to my site, truly would appreciate it!
