2 Easy Dinners and an Easy Dessert

Our family tried these recipes this past week and we all loved them.
And they were Easy!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew from Six Sisters Stuff

Place theses ingredients in your crock pot:
1 lb. beef stew cubes ( I used pork stew meat)
4 carrots sliced
4-6 red potatoes cut into large cubes
1 bay leaf

Combine these ingredients in a bowl:
1 (1 oz.) packet dry onion soup mix
2 cans (10.75 oz) cream of mushroom soup
1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
1 (10 oz.) package frozen green peas

Then place this mixture on top of the meat and vegetables
in your crock pot.
Cook on low 7-10 hrs. or high 5-6 hours.
(I think I cooked ours for about 3-4 on high)

Chocolate Bundt Cake with White Chocolate Frosting

1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 pkg. instant chocolate pudding (3.9 oz.)
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. sour cream (8 oz.)
3/4 c. vegetable oil
3/4 c. water
4 eggs
1 c. mini-semisweet chocolate chips 
6 squares white baking chocolate (1 oz. each)

In a mixing bowl, combine dry cake mix, pudding mix, and sugar. Add the sour cream, oil and water; mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into a greased and floured (it has to be VERY well greased and floured or I use “Cake Release style Pam” which also works really well) 12-cup bundt pan (the smaller bundt pans are not large enough and the cake will spill over. If you have a smaller pan, pour a cup or two of the batter into a seperate Pyrex bowl and bake an extra mini cake!). Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean (sometimes longer, just keep checking). Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. In a microwave or double boiler, melt the white chocolate; drizzle over cake. (I put the chocolate squares in a ziplock bag in the microwave. Mush the chocolate around every 30 seconds to  make sure it soesnt burn until it is fully melted. then snip a small corner of the bag off and drizzle.) Yield: 12-16 servings.
