No success compares to the success in the home; no failure a worse failure. She is also happy in her homemaking role. She is not bored. She is not looking to the world of men for fulfillment. Her glory is the esteem of her husband, the happiness of her children, and her overall success in the home. #TheDomesticGoddess#fascinatingwomanhood
Look out - Bassett the Domestic Goddess is about. I might even fire up the Rayburn (or the expensive alcove ornament as it is known as). Any one for Afternoon Tea? LL xx 🙃💙 #iambaking#thedomesticgoddess
Does food matter?
Of course it does!
Our body needs to be refueled daily. However, this is simple biology.
Our body also needs this basic fuel of vitality mixed with the essence of our souls desire for pleasure.
And who better to discuss this Divine Ritual of Pleasurable Eating...? .
Yes @nigellalawson #thedomesticgoddess

Children are the most beautiful beings in this universe. When they tell you something, good or bad, they mean it. They mean what they say and say what they mean. Their smiles are genuine. They value people, and not money (until they get older of course and brainwashed by society and mainstream media). They give from the sincerity of their heart's, and don't expect anything in return. Whereas when we adults do something, we usually expect something in return. They don't see the world like we do. They don't see the greed, the pain, the suffering, the lies, death etc. They see the world with the beauty and grace. They are amazed by the littlest of things. They look at the world as if it is playground, and they just want to play in it. They are always watching everything we do in amazement. Whether it's starting up the dishwasher, or cooking dinner. They say that you aren't truly rich until you have something that money can't buy. I'd say children are the richest beings in the world, as they wholeheartedly enjoy each moment, no matter if they are a living in the Buckingham palace, or a studio apartment. My sky LOVES @peppapig. Since i am incompetent and can't draw to save my life, i found a step by step tutorial on how to draw peppa pig. My finished product made her BEAM with joy. Almost as if peppa pig herself was here. Isn't it amazing how children find true happiness, in the smallest of thing's? They have the key to life within them, as they have the purest of heart's. Let us learn learn from these angels 🖤 #TheDomesticDesi#TheDomesticGoddess#ChildrenHaveThePurestOfHearts#ChildrenHoldTheKeyToHappiness#ChildrenAreBlessings#Children#Kids#Blessings#BeautifulHeart#PureHeart#Love#PeppaPig @xclusivedad
Has anyone ever tried #ClottedCream ? Before any of my fellow Americans freak out over the term, "clotted" and think of a blood clot lmao or think it means "curdled cream", I promise, it's NOT. It originated in the U.K. and is a common condiment for scones, during tea time.
It tastes like a creamy, buttery, cream cheese type of spread. It's very soft, not like a stick of butter, or a brick of cream cheese. It's not sweet, but it doesn't have that "tart" cream cheese flavor. To me, it tastes like if you whipped up some fresh homemade unsweetened whipcream, and beat some REAL unsalted butter in it. It is to DIE for!
I am a huge foodie and saw it on food network a few years back. Just never thought I'd get to try it. Since it's not used here in the U.S. for anything. Last year, while walking around world market, I saw it and literally jumped for joy and screamed LOL. Until I saw the price! For a little 3 ounce jar, it was like $15!!! It was SO delicious. But it was barely enough for all four of us to use on fresh biscuits. And I never saw it again when I went back to the world market 😭😭😭 I have been CRAVING it SO bad for a couple weeks now. I went online to see if it was easy to make. To my surprise, it was easy, and a FRACTION of the store bought price to make it at home, and it made like 10 times more for a total of $5. However, it's just very time consuming. Extremely easy to make. Just extremely time consuming. But, here I am. I made it! And it tastes EVERY bit as yummy. Dare I say, even BETTER, because it's fresh!
Best way to eat this is on some freshly baked biscuits. Split your steamy soft biscuit down the middle. Scoop this cream on each side, generously. Top each side with the BEST strawberry preserves you can find. You can dip fresh fruit in this cream for a creamy taste. You can put it on waffles and pancakes. You can put a dollop on a piece of pie. You can do ANYTHING with it. It makes my tummy, so happy. And my family LOVES it. It's very familiar in flavor, but you've never had anything like it. So BOMB! #TheDomestiDesi#TheDomesticGoddess#ClottedCream#UK#Condiment#Creamy#UseItOnAnything#Foodie#Homemade#FoodPorn#Yummy#Yum
Does it work? Yes it does!
Hey you guy's, i wanted to share something with you that I've been testing out. Wipes! Make up wipes and cleaning wipes to be exact. I know it doesn't seem like much, but when you tally it up for the whole year, it shocks you!
The solution you ask? BABY WIPES! Yes, you read right. BABY WIPES. they are a game changer. Not only do most varieties of baby wipes have thick and sturdy sheets (more durable than a actual Clorox wipe and make up wipe), but they are also cheap!. My local king soopers (Kroger for anyone outside of Colorado) had a deal on the store brand thick baby wipes for 5 for $5.
Each pack has 72 sheets. That's 360 wipes for $5! This Clorox wipe tub has 75 wipes and cost me about $5. And my Olay makeup wipe pack has only 30 wipes and it cost me about $5 as well. So which seems better, 360 wipes for $5 or 30 wipes for $5?
Did you know baby wipes make an excellent makeup remover? Make sure to use the thick wipes that have aloe in them. It is great for sensitive skin and it won't dry out your skin. I actually find myself reaching for baby wipes more often than I do actual makeup wipes. I have officially stopped purchasing makeup wipes. The baby wipes are so much more gentle and hydrating to your skin. Many of the makeup wipes that you buy have alcohol in them, which is extremely damaging to your skin. Please try removing your makeup with Baby Wipes! It really does work. Even if you don't wear make up, they are nice to wipe your face with to remove dirt and oil.
Can you really make a baby wipe into a cleaning wipe? Yes you can! All you need to do is transfer one pack of thick sheet baby wipes into either a resealable gallon-size Ziploc bag or an old Clorox cleaning wipe tub. To the baby wipes, add two tablespoons of bleach, and two tablespoons of Pine-Sol. Use your fingers to lightly massage in the liquids that you just added so they are evenly dispersed. Now use that money you saved for a bill, or something nice for yourself or a loved one! @queenbeemccluskey #TheDomesticDesi#TheDomesticGoddess#lifestyle#tips#tipsandtricks#babywipes#cleaning#Makeupwipes#Beauty#clorox#bleach#pinesol#savemoney#lifehack
Okay, I know we are well past the women crush Wednesday. But can I just say, @sarahjessicaparker is my women crush Wednesday, EVERY day. And for good reason. To me, she's one of the few women in Hollywood who exemplifies an amazing woman. Yes, she's not the only one, and yes, I know that there are other amazing women in Hollywood. But SJP sticks out to me like a sore thumb. And I mean that in the best way possible. Maybe I am biased because I clearly love to write, which she does effortlessly and hands down the best out of anyone in my eyes. Maybe I relate to her because I love to write as well. Or maybe I'm biased because I secretly believe my alter ego is Carrie Bradshaw, sitting in my NYC apartment- doing what she loves (WRITING), all while waiting for Mr. Big. My Mr. Big is Austin lol! Or, I could just state the obvious as to why she's so amazing. She's beautiful inside and out. She's got KILLER taste. She has a beautiful heart. She is a devoted wife and mother. Her writing style is literally the best thing since sliced bread. She's articulate, educated, and well spoken. She's extremely giving and has done tons of charity, but never brags about it. She's kind and gentle. She's sophisticated and classy, yet quirky and fun. She works hard. She stands up for what is fair and for what she believes is right. She's a hip mom. And she always speaks words that tug on your heartstrings and makes you think. And the kicker? She does this all wearing the most gorgeous designer heels ❤😚 @queenbeemccluskey #TheDomesticDesi#TheDomesticGoddess#sarahjessicaparker#SJP#CarrieBradshaw#SATC#SexAndTheCity#NewYorkCity#NYC#Manhattan#WCW#WomenCrushWednesday#WomenCrushEveryDay#Writer#Blogger#MrBig#Classy#Elegant#Sophisticated#iLoveHer#StrongWoman
I CAN'T even with these LOL. Seriously, probably my most favorite snack. Organic AND good for you! And vegan? AND down right DELICIOUS! I've tried a few brands of these and these are by far my most favorite. I literally have been eating two packs of the sriracha flavor EVERY daaaay. If you are looking for an AMAZING, DELICIOUS, low carb, low calorie, nutrient dense, gluten free, low sodium, clean food, snack that will satisfy a potato chips craving, you will LOVE these. They make me happy ☺. Food makes me happy! Food is a universal language that we all speak and that brings all together. These are high in vitamins a, c, calcium, and B 12. I love to snack on the sriracha ones and make baby avocado sushi rolls with the salted plain one's. Yum 😋 @queenbeemccluskey #TheDomesticDesi#TheDomesticGoddess#Seaweed#SeaweedSnacks#OrganicSeaweedSnacks#organic#Vegan#Nutritional#Nutrients#Vitamins#Health#HealthyEating#CleanEating#Eating#Food#Snacks @oceanshalo
On the surface, a swan looks so graceful. Its beauty and grace often makes us forget how hard its little feet are working under the surface, to keep itself afloat. Let the swan be a life lesson... In life, EVERYONE has to work hard. Whether that means in school, at your job, in your home, in yourself, in your marriage, with your children etc. Remember that the world owes you nothing. It is quite the opposite really. You owe it to the world to be your best self possible and to present your best self possible. You only get one life to live. Unless you want to be in the same miserable position for a decade, you have to work hard. Don't rely on family and friends to help you. You have to love yourself enough to work hard and want a better life. Don't talk about a better life, BE about a better life.
Present yourself to the world with with beauty, grace, elegance. Present your very best self to everyone. Just like the swan. BUT, as with the swan, be working hard underneath the surface, to keep yourself afloat. NEVER stop peddling your feet!
One of my greatest wishes is that all three of my girls know how much they are equally loved by me. I want them to feel it forever and never doubt it for a second, even if I'm mad at them. I want them to know that I'll treat them and do for them all the same. My heart has five chamber's. One for my husband. One EACH for each of my girl's. And the last piece for everything else. I have thought before what my life would have been like had I done what I was "supposed" to do and finish college, bought a home with my own money and maybe been introduced to a man to marry thru a family friend... I think about what I would have had and who would be in my life and what people would treat me better.
But then I realize that I've erased the beauty of MY life. I've erased MY path. God had a very different plan for me than I had for myself. I wouldn't be who I am today without the struggles, the pain, the tears, the trials and lessons. I would have never found myself. I would have never experienced the unconditional love that I feel from my husband and children.
I look at other people's lives and sometimes I think the grass is greener because they have a ton of money or a family that is super close, amazing sister, etc. BUT, I wouldn't trade the people in my life for anything. A college degree is AMAZING. But I shouldn't have to have one to have your respect and love. Not having a degree doesn't make me any less of a person. It makes me less of a person in the work field, but not in life.
Some of us shoot right for our dreams with full force and make it. Some of us shoot right for our dreams and have major hurdles, but they still get there. Some of us, like myself, had other plans that they didn't even know about. Just because my life is EXTREMELY different, doesn't mean it is any less beautiful 💖 @queenbeemccluskey #TheDomesticDesi#TheDomesticGoddess#Inspiration#Inspo#FamilyInspo#FamilyLove#Family#Love#LifePath#Life#MyPath#MyJourney#SelfLove#SelfAppreciation#ThankfulHeart
This was an AMAZING vegan soup for these cold nights! What is it about soup? All I invision is a cold snowy day outside, and sitting by the fire place, in warm jammies and fuzzy socks, wrapped in a blanket, surrounded by your loved ones, eating a bowl of steamy soup. That sounds like heaven to me. I made two soups. I made this one pictured above. Which is a Tuscan style kale and white bean soup. And then for my husband, I made Olive Garden's "zuppa tuscana" soup. It is the soup that has that creamy spicy broth, with kale, sausage and baby red potato slices! 😋😍😍 to DIE for. We topped our soup with some freshly grated parmesan cheese and a squirt of beautiful fresh lemon. I ate mine without cheese for a beautiful vegan and healthy, yet SUPER hearty and satisfying meal. BEST part of all? You could eat this whole pot and it wouldn't be bad for you. I made tons, anyone is welcome to come get some 💖 @queenbeemccluskey #TheDomesticDesi#TheDomesticGoddess#DinnerAtTheMcCluskeys#TuscanSoup#Tuscany#FoodPorn#Foodie#Dinner#Soup#SoupOnAColdDay#SoupForTheSoul
I CAN'T believe I haven't posted this. It brings tears to my eyes. So for those who don't know, I've been really getting into the world of blogging. It has ALWAYS been a passion of mine. I am passionate about lifestyle blogging. Make up, food, life hacks, marriage/children advice, thing's on a budget etc are ALL things I love to write about. I've been testing tons of make up products and my husband always sees me standing in our bathroom, with the horrible fluorescent lighting, and me sitting on the floor with everything surrounding me. Although I always dreamed of a vanity, I never asked for one because they can be pricey!
Come Christmas morning, under our tree was a box the size of me, addressed to me. Immediately, I started to think that I must've been a good girl for Santa to leave me such a gift. I was told to read the card first. The card said... "I will always support you and your dreams. I love you babe. Love, Austin"
With a shaky hand and voice, I put the card down and opened the box. It was a new vanity and seat, a tripod thing to hold my phone to make video's, and the two sided mirror with the lights. I immediately ran up to Austin with tears in my eyes.
It's not about the money. It's about the fact that I have the most encouraging, selfless, motivating, honest, loving, and good hearted husband. I've never received such a heartfelt gift. I've been with Austin for almost a decade. So I'd like to think that I know something about marriage. Marriage is about loving and supporting your spouse. Just as my husband has supported me for my hopes and dreams, I will proudly stand next to him for his. And I have. He will be starting his dream this year as well.
Here's to making 2017 a year of dreams coming true. Never doubt yourself for a moment. My biggest dream was my husband, and that came true. I love you more than anything Austin! Thank you so much for loving and believing in me when I didn't love and believe in myself 💖 @queenbeemccluskey @xclusivedad #TheDomesticDesi#TheDomesticGoddess#HusbandAndWifeLife#TrueLove#DreamsDoComeTrue#ThankfulHeart#AnythingIsPossible#Hope#Dream#Believe#VanitySet#Vanity#VanityMirror#Beauty#Lifestyle
Here's a secret... I've been in a very dark tunnel for a long time. I opened the door hoping to find some light and a clear road, but I opened my door to this. But look at how BEAUTIFUL this is! Life too, can be this way. I think once we get thru a struggle or trial in life, we come out thinking that it will all be uphill, sunny days and rainbows ahead. Sometimes, this isn't true.
But what you have to remember is that you ARE out of the bad times! You have to remember that life awaits you and also remember that you are moving forward. Sometimes, when we are down in life, we don't see the good things in our lives. Not because they aren't there. But because we have to look a little harder to find them. But when you do see the good things that make you smile, they will give you the strength to carry on.
And the best news of all you ask?!! Is that there will always, always, ALWAYS be brighter days ahead 💖 thanks M.Tang! @queenbeemccluskey #TheDomesticDesi#TheDomesticGoddess#Inspiration#DailyInspiration#DailyInspo#Inspo#Love#Life (BTW, can I tell you how much I love gloomy weather? I think I belong in the Adams family because I hate sunny and warm days. Give me a cool, dark and gloomy day. I'll take that any day! Something about gloomy weather is very soothing to me)
When your chunky monkey 🐵 is teething and doesn't really want to eat regular food, thankfully, a nice-big-chewy #SlimJim came to the rescue! I know that they most likely didn't actually have teething babies as their target demographic when they created these. But they work fabulously! They have just the right amount of tug and chew, with some added flavor. She ate the whole thing. I remember a friend told me several years ago that she gave her baby beef jerky when they were teething. I knew it sounded like a good idea because it would allow them to chew and chomp on it to relieve the pain and cut the tooth thru. But I didn't feel right about it because beef jerky pieces are much smaller. And we all know kids like to shove things in their mouth. I was afraid my kids would shove the whole thing in their mouth. Slim Jim's are thankfully long, so I have much less worry. Now, I MUST say, you can NOT just leave the baby with the slim jim and run to the laundry room to start a load of laundry. You need to be in the same room, just in case they bite off too much. As with ANYTHING, there's always a risk. So to be on the safe side, it's always a good idea to not leave the room while they have a slim Jim. I am by no means a "holier than thou- parent expert", but this is something that worked for my kids and many, many other people I know. Happy teething! @queenbeemccluskey #TheDomesticDesi#TheDomesticGoddess#StayAtHomeMom#SAHM#Mommy101#TeethingBaby#Baby#MommyAndBaby#BabyTipsAndTricks#SlimJim
The girls wanted some summer sausage as a snack before bed with cheese and crackers. Hickory farms summer sausage always makes its way to every holiday party I've ever been to. Sky loved is so much that she grabbed the whole other sausage and took off with it 😂 I guess the thin slice I gave her wasn't enough. Nooooo sky! You're supposed to be plant based with me 😭😭 she's converted to the dark side haha. It's that yummy, that even a baby loves it. Will it be on your table this year? @queenbeemccluskey 👑🐝McCluskey #TheDomesticDesi#TheDomesticGoddess#HickoryFarms#SummerSausage
Hello beautiful people! One of my most favorite beauty gurus on YouTube also has a vlog channel! Aside from beauty and brains, this girl loves good food. She is Persian and her family owns a wonderful restaurant. I wish I knew the name 😭 but if you are in Ohio, it would be worth a visit because their food looks to die for!
Anyways, I was watching her vlog the other day and she was eating something called Persian spaghetti. It looked BOMB.com! I did some research to find a recipe and found that it is actually made much like regular spaghetti, but you fry potatoes in lots of oil on the bottom of the pan first. It actually worked out really well because I bought stuff to make spaghetti even before I watched her video. I had some organic baby Yukon gold potatoes in my fridge that I've been loving! I'm sure most of us have that last straggler potato in the back of the fridge somewhere lol.
Spaghetti is always an amazing meal for anyone, but especially a family. It's cheap. It's filling. It's a hearty meal. It's not too unhealthy. And you can switch it up any which way you'd like. You can use a bean pasta, a gluten free pasta, wheat pasta etc. You can use ground sausage, ground organic turkey breast, or vegan! The possibilities are endless.
I made my families favorite way for spaghetti last night. And then I decided to make a version for myself. I used ground up mushrooms and leftover lentils as my "meat". Then, I added my yummy, organic sauce/gravy. In another pot, I added some vegan coconut butter,added my sliced potatoes, seasonings, cooked the potatoes to golden brown on both sides, added my noodles and "meat" and sauce, and let it cook together. Then flip it over on to a dish. Naz says you eat it with ketchup on top, which is exactly what I did. I added some sriracha for heat!
Can I tell you how yummy, and hearty this was?! Thank you SO much to my favorite YouTuber Naz! Check her out on YouTube at Naz Kavari, and her IG: @nazaninkavari. @queenbeemccluskey #TheDomesticDesi#TheDomesticGoddess#persianfood#spaghetti#persianspaghetti#whatveganseat#foodporn#whatieatinaday#vegan#heartyveganfood#familymeal#foodie#writer#blogger
With Christmas right around the corner, and preparing for guests, planning your Christmas dinner menu, Christmas shopping, finishing the work week, the kids running around the house because there's no school, it can be a crazy time! When things are busy, we tend to fall into repetition and just doing things in our safe zone. Pillsbury knows of this so I'm pretty sure that they are excited for families all around the country to be buying their pre made chocolate chip cookie and leaving it for Santa 🎅 on Christmas eve. And don't get me wrong, my husband and i....I mean Santa....has enjoyed these delectable cookies in our home for many years. That was until I received a secret family recipe for the BEST, most ooey-gooey-spicy-sweet ginger cookies cookies 🍪. I'm the only daughter in law as of current, so I was so thankful when I was gifted this recipe. these cookies will make even someone who despises ginger, come back for thirds.
We usually make about 100 of these divine cookies. We pop 40 in the freezer, so we have them all year. We keep 20 on our counter in a dish, and then we wrap and gift the last 40. I fully intend on making this sacred and delicious recipe- my children, husband and friends would lose their mind if I didn't. But it got me thinking....what if there are mommy's and daddy's(oops, I mean Santa 🎅) who is vegan, or is on a diet...so I created this recipe, "Rice Crispy Snowball's". It's healthier. vegan friendly. And for the "Santa" who may be watching his waistline this year ;) merry Christmas to you and yours.
YOU WILL NEED:
1 (10 ounce) sack of Dandies vegan marshmallows. 5 cups of organic brown/white rice cereal. 2 tablespoons of vegan butter. 2 tablespoons of organic coconut oil. And the coatings you desire. Crushed candy canes, and shredded coconut are my favorites.
TO MAKE: melt the butter and oil together. Then drop in the marshmallows and keep stirring until they are all melted and fluffy. Add in the rice cereal and stir to combine. While the mixture is still slightly warm, roll the mixture into golf ball size balls coat in your choice of topping! Enjoy! @queenbeemccluskey #TheDomesticDesi#TheDomesticGoddess#vegan#VeganChristmasTreats
What are you guys making for Christmas eve or Christmas day dinner? I've been losing sleep over my menu LOL. This is the first time I've been a plant based eater for the holidays. But I have carnivores in my family who I need to feed as well. I'm thinking my famous Dr. Pepper glazed ham for them. And for me? Well....I've been doing some research and plant based eaters have a lack of omega 3s and DHA. To get those, you need fish or fish oil. Seafood is something us Indian people grew up with in our diet weekly. Not a special occasion like my husband said he grew up with. So, maybe I'll bake myself a little piece of fish? Or, I found a fabulous recipe for a vegetarian "meat loaf". And I'm so happy because it doesn't have those nasty meatless meat crumbles! Decisions decisions. #ChristmasAtTheMcCluskeys#ChristmasMealPlanning#ChristmasDinner#TheDomesticDesi#TheDomesticGoddess @xclusivedad
We are visiting Korea today with this deliciousness. These are called rice cakes. They are made from you guessed it, rice 🍚. It is rice that has been pulverized and then kneaded into a dough until it is glutinous. Then you shape your rice cakes. If you're anything like me, you like texture in food. I love food that has texture. Chewy, crunchy, crispy are a few of my favorite textures. This is very chewy. But not unbearable where it makes your jaw hurt. Think: a gummy bear and piece of Italian gnocchi mixed together. If you've never had gnocchi, it is like a pillow in dumpling form. This is a great, flavorful, spicy and flavorful dish. In all honesty, I think my favorite way to eat a rice cake is when it is baked! It gets slightly crisp on the outside, and the inside is chewy, yet fluffy. I love that texture in my mouth. It is so satisfying and delicious! I loved making this dish! So beautiful to look at as well. What is your favorite food texture? #Vegan#Korea#KoreanFood#KoreanVeganFood#Lunch#TheDomesticGoddess#TheDomesticDesi
You guys...do yourself a favor... Get off of the phone-
Hop in your car-
And drive to the store and buy these organic #OrangeMangoes . OH MY GOODNESS GUYS! these literally taste like a mango, and have NO tart orange taste, but they smell JUST like a regular orange. But it tastes like mango. What is this deliciousness?! Is this magic?! Hands down, one of the BEST fruits I've EVER tried. Get them before they're gone. They will only be in season for a couple more weeks 😭😭 they are pricey, but oh so yummy! #TheDomesticGoddess#TheDomesticDesi#Vegan#OrangeMangoes ps....if you're wondering about my hashtags, I'll reveal the reasoning behind them soon ;) I'm working on a few thaaangs. @xclusivedad
#ChristmasCards my huz has about 1100 Christmas cards that he has to fill out for his customer's. Being the good wife that I am, I decided to do them for him, just like I did last year. I also have some yummy beef and gravy simmering away on the stove for him while he gets some much deserved rest. My skyloo is helping me too :) #WifeDuties#HusbandAndWifeLife#TheDomesticGoddess#TheDomesticDesi @xclusivedad
Thank GOD for Asian/Indian food because without those two, I couldn't eat vegan. Who wants to just eat a plain American salad with iceberg lettuce? As a MEAL? No one LOL. When you think of other countries, so much yummy food comes to mind. When you think of Mexico, you think burritos and tacos. Japan, you think of hibachi and sushi. Vietnam, you think of pho 🍜. China, you think dim sum and the yummy stuff we get from take out. India and the middle East, you think of spice markets, curry, kabobs, hummus, flat breads. Italy, you think of pizza and pasta. Sadly, the U.S. is thought of as McDonald's as our national cuisine, throughout the world. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love our country, I just don't care for what we consider food. If you have eaten fresh fruit/vegetables/meat/seafood in other countries, you know exactly how fake and "chemically" our food tastes, compared to others. This is an Asian salad with tons of jasmine rice, steamed potatoes, pan seared fresh green beans, cilantro, peppers, onions, apples, green leaf lettuce and a load of other yummy 😋 ingredients #vegan#TheDomesticGoddess#TheDomesticDesi#lunch
Even though I don't eat meat, I had 2 ham/cheese/egg bagel sandwiches made for my sweet huz when he got home this morning from work. And now I'm making a delicious, low and slow cooked beef stew. I only added some potatoes now so they mush down and create a thick gravy. Here's a tip: when making a stew or pot roast, add like 1 medium russet potato peeled and cubed to the vessel in the very beginning with the meat. This will cause the potato to cook down into basically a mashed potato by the time the meat is done and create a naturally thick gravy. To have potatoes and carrots that are fully intact and not falling apart and mushed, but still melt in your mouth buttery soft, add some organic baby potatoes and organic baby carrots the last hour and a half or the cook time. They won't be mushed, but they will still be melt in your mouth tender! So don't add the ones that you are going to eat as a side dish with the roast until the last hour and a half of cook time. Enjoy this snowy day :) #TheDomesticGoddess#TheDomesticDesi#DinnerAtTheMcCluskeys @xclusivedad
Weekends usually mean trying new recipes & baking. Last night I made this amazing Shrimp & quinoa dish (everyone but me thought it would be better with pasta)-I even cleaned & deveined the shrimp myself! It was amazing!
Tonight, I made One Pot Creamy Mushroom Pasta. It had amazing flavors from the thyme & fresh spinach. It was a hit with the fam!! #schiavoweekendtraditions#mamaofthreeboys#foodie#kitchenishome#thedomesticgoddess
