I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Pumpkin Beef Stew

Dinner for two comfort food with lots of nutrients from pumpkin and carrots to keep your heart healthy.

1 lb boneless blade beef, whole or cut in chunks
1 tbsp flour
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp soya sauce
1 1/2 tsps brown sugar
1 tsp minced ginger
1 1/2 tbsps olive oil
1 onion diced
1 pinch red pepper flakes
2 bay leaves
14 oz can diced tomatoes
1 tbsp tomato paste
2 cups peeled and cubed pumpkin
2 or 3 carrots, cut in rounds
2 cups beef broth
2 tbsps olive oil
fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp flour

Mix the flour, minced garlic, soya sauce, brown sugar and minced ginger together to make a paste. Slather all over the beef and marinate 30 minutes.

In a large skillet on high heat add the olive oil and sear the beef on all sides. Remove to a plate. Add a little more evoo and sauté the onion and red pepper flakes for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and tomato  paste along with the bay leaves and broth. Return the beef to the pan and bring to a boil. Then reduce the heat, cover and simmer 1 1/2 hours. When half the time has past (so after about 45 minutes) add the carrots and pumpkin. You may want to add a little more broth just to cover the veggies. Cover the skillet and simmer another 45 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Remove the bay leaves, whisk in 1 tablespoon of flour and heat on high uncovered for about 10 minutes to slightly thicken the sauce.

Add fresh chopped parsley to serve.
Makes 2-3 servings
