Featured Recipe: Italian Beef and Vegetable Stew
Though I’m often cooking for one these days, I still like to cook in big batches to freeze. Not only do I have my dinner with most of the work done, I have food to share, too. Both my daughters are now living in apartments near their university. On a restricted budget and with incredibly hectic schedules, their diet often suffers as a result. So I purchased a couple sets of plastic freezer ware and have been packaging “extras,” freezing them and sending them back to school about every six weeks. It’s like giving them building blocks to construct quick and easy dinners.
Italian Beef and Vegetable Stew uses the already-stewed beef to stir up a steaming hot, wonderfully filling beef and vegetable stew that can be served tonight or frozen and served later. (If you are using previously frozen Italian Stewed Beef mixture, I don’t suggest freezing the stew again.)
I have to say even though my girls aren’t around to eat dinner with me every night any longer, it’s still really nice to hear “Mom that beef stew was amazing!” even in a text message.

What you're saying..
Thank you for the great recipes and ideas in your cookbook. I was given Desperation Dinners last year for Christmas and fell in love right away. There are several recipes that all three of my kids will eat without any complaints! Our favorite is Alicia’s Chicken with Olives. I have even made it with ground meat when I was short on groceries.
