My coworker had a baby a week and a half ago. My gift was to make food for her. I made her a smoked turkey and mashed potatoes before the baby was born but on Monday I made this beef stew with some Grands biscuits and my apple cake.
I followed the Paula Deen recipe and needed to add in a bit more water part way through cooking. I remade this recipe today for my husband and I and I added fingerling potatoes and some of the green bush beans from our garden. I added all the vegetables at the beginning of the cooking process, not after an hour and a half.
