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 Mom’s Classic Pot Roast with Savory Onion Gravy, Gochujang Short Ribs with Sticky Sauce, and the Proposal Chicken!
Happy Sunday TKW Family! How was your week? Ours was pretty good; busy though. This is always my busiest time of the year here at TKW. Holiday recipes, collaborations, client requests, and holiday gatherings. And on top of that, I’m organizing a local cookie exchange with my neighbors. It’s been so long since I hosted one that I’m super excited about that!
Outdoor Cooking for the holidays!
Now that the weather has cooled down, I’m cooking outdoors more too. Oh don’t get me wrong, I will still absolutely fire up Bella when it’s 117 outside and make pizzas. But I’d prefer it to be not in direct sun.
We had planned on doing a bunch of remodeling and new construction here – a huge RV building (even though we’ll never have an RV – it’s for Mr. Fantabulous’ company stuff), a recording studio for Mr. Fantabulous, and a test studio for me, plus a big pergola area over top of my pizza ovens and big green egg. However, between multiple surgeries and illnesses, we didn’t get to it. That’s okay though, our health is most important. So we’ll do it in 2022.
For now, since the weather is cooler, I’ve been grilling out a ton and making all kinds of foods in the Egg and pizza oven.
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 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!
