What you're saying..

Kudos and Plaudits to you! I have tried many of your recipes with success but I must say your Scrumptious Crock Pot Beef Stew was OUTSTANDING!!! I've made it many times since it appeared in the paper and each time it's a big hit and I love it even more (great leftover too).

I've learned to do all the prepping/chopping the night before so that all I have to do is the layering/assembling in the morning. I have upgraded a tad and use sirloin steak strips cut up when I can get them on sale......YUMMMMM!

So, thanks again for sharing your recipe. I know I'll be making this for eons to come!
