  1. I have made the slow cooker pot roast and love it!! And your cole slaw recipe was the inspiration for my own version. Mine never tasted right until I adapted yours. Next up will be to try the pancakes! :) Thanks Mirlandra! I can’t believe your baby will be almost a year old already!

    • Yeah! It is always fun to know that others are enjoying my favorites. It took me years to stumble on the secrets of coleslaw. So many recipes are like that. You just can’t quite find that perfect way you like it and then one day you come across something that just opens it up for you! I love that moment of discovery. I hope you like the pancakes just as much. Since Jonathan had the day off yesterday he made us a batch for a lazy breakfast and they were excellent as always.

      I can’t believe Jack is almost 1! Just a few more days. I don’t feel ready to be the mom of a walking, talking human. We are planning to take him out to a nice dinner on his birthday this week – somewhere he can get all the mandarin oranges he wants to eat! (They are one of his favorite treats.)

  2. I’m trying to copy your easy tri tip recipe, but it’s not working. Could you possible email it? Looks delicious! Thanks so much!

    • Hi Nancy,

      If you look at the bottom of the post you will see the recipe. Under the little photo there is a button that says “Print.” You can print it out by clicking that button. Unfortunately to keep my work protected under copyright laws I cannot e-mail it to you. It seems silly bit in this day and age it must be done.

      I hope you enjoy making the Tri-tip!
