What's Sizzling on TSRI This Week

What's Sizzling on TSRI This Week?  Our hottest recipes! Where else to find us! What we are up to! We finally spent a week at home, did some amazing cooking and enjoyed some down time. How have you liked the new recipes for

this week?

We took off for a quick 2 day vacay in Sedona this week. We hit some great restaurants and basically chased fall. Believe it or not, we found it. And it is more gorgeous than I remembered.
We also found winter in Flagstaff (not quite as fun). At 11,500 feet at Arizona Snowbowl it was about 30 degrees (which feels like 20). Talk about a wake up call. So I am happy to be thawed out and back in Phoenix just in time for some rain and great weather before we head to Disneyland in a few days.

Oh my gosh, and yesterday was Back to the Future Day. I have to admit I am a little geeked out over it. Chad, Munchkin and I hit the theater to see the trilogy and it was so fun. We shared through Instagram, so if you follow us there you probably caught a few pics from the theater. It was really cool to hang with a theater full of fellow geeks clapping over the date October 21, 2015. I love those movies and I realized I never saw part 3.

So things have been crazy, although the travel is fun I think we are going to plant ourselves for a month after Disneyland. I am so excited about Mickey's Halloween Party.

So, what do we need to eat? What is your favorite?

Crockpot Candy is the easiest and most impressive homemade candy ever.  A rich chocolaty, peanutty 4 ingredient recipe that you simply toss in the slow cooker, stir a few times and scoop it out. It doesn't get much easier than that!

5 Ingredient, 5 Minute, 5 Star Brown Gravy. The easiest brown gravy you have ever made!
Homemade gravy is one of my favorite shortcuts in the kitchen.  This 5 Minute Homemade Brown Gravy recipe will be a meal saver.  All you need is this simple recipe, no packet needed. Substitute chicken for beef and have a scrumptious gravy for Thanksgiving.

Garlic Parmesan Cheesy Potatoes are roasted to perfection in a cast iron skillet to create a spectacular potato dish that is bursting with flavor.

It doesn't get much better than this mouthwatering side. You must give it a try!

5 Ingredient Lazy Day Chili is a thick and hearty recipe that comes together in just 15 minutes, using only 5 ingredients. Truly one of our favorite chili recipes ever it is perfect for winter or fall, spring or even summer barbecuing.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Extreme Brownie Cake starts with a simple brownie recipe that is fully loaded with peanut butter cups. Then, a peanut butter frosting that is second only to your grandma’s peanut butter fudge is the only way to do those layers any justice. The rich and creamy peanut butter frosting will blow your mind. It is so good, I couldn't keep my hands off it. It is nearly addictive.
Pan Fried Brussels Sprouts with Sweet Chili Sauce starts by caramelizing the sprouts to give them amazing flavor and texture. Then they are cooked in the most amazing Sweet Chili Sauce which gives them some sweet heat. Absolutely irresistible!
