Old-Fashioned Beef Stew: This classic stick-to-your-ribs stew is the ideal project for a chilly weekend. Beef, onion, carrots, potatoes and red wine come together in cozy harmony. If you are feeding a crowd, good news: It doubles (or triples) beautifully.
Healthy and addicting black bean dip - the perfect snack full of protein to keep you satisfied! Best served with pita chips, tortilla chips or veggies. Would replace sour cream with plain greek yogurt.
The rice pilaf part of this comes from Hensperfer and Kaufmanns' Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook. I used a Sanyo Fuzzy Logic rice cooker cup). The lemon and wine steams the shrimp nicely while the rice cooks.
