Super Easy Italian Beef Sandwiches

I can’t believe I’m just now posting this recipe as I make this all the time especially when I entertain. It feeds a crowd, at least 10-12 sandwiches. It’s affordable and takes 5 minutes to prep.

1 3-4 lbs chuck roast

1 onion chopped into large pieces

1 packet of Italian seasoning

1 container of beef stock

6-8 pepperoncini plus 2 tablespoons their juice

Put your crockpot on high and place roughly chopped onion. Season beef on both sides with dressing packet.

Add the container of broth, pepperoncinis and juice.

Cook in high for 1 hour then turn to low and cook for 7 more hours. Remove fat, shred beef and save some broth for dipping. Serve with crusty white rolls, sweet peppers and a horseradish Mayo.


Winter Blue

I love navy as an alternative to black. I have these navy boots and they are fun!

Love this coat. It’s a great weight for milder temps.

Shirt- bought this summer at Loft. Currently not available. Similar which is only $8

Pants- old from H&M. These are even more adorable and $13


Love the shoulders of this shirt.

My favorite cardigan…. styled two ways for work

I love a pop of animal print for the office. I got this cardigan last year at Old Navy and I wear it a ton. It also pairs well with a printed tee, jeans and sneakers.

Man, I wish this was still in stock because it is fabulous and versatile. It did find a similar one at a great price point

Paired with:

A white body suit- it’s $11.99 right now

Midi black skirt- mine is old from Nordstrom, here is a super cute one from Express

Black dress boot- Old Navy and they are no longer in stock, here is a similar pair from Target

I wear these boots all the time for work. I highly recommend them or a similar pair. They go great with dresses, skirts and skinny pants.

Outfit 2

White button shirt-

Black pants- mine are old from H&M, similar pair

Loafers- mine are from TJ Maxx, they have a few right now

Happy Friday!

Fashion Friday Week 2

My second week in and already missed a Friday post. I was having too much fun with family and decorating for the Christmas season.

I’m just so thankful I can breathe out of my nose this morning as I had a nasty sinus infection all week and I’m finally starting to feel better. Hence the outfit post for this week. I worked from home Monday thru Wednesday and wore these. I even zoomed in them.

Here are the links-




Love the shorts as I hate being hot in bed. I’m a size M in all.
See, with the cowl-neck it’s fancy enough for a zoom call. Great buy and on sale now at Old Navy.

Herbed Butter Roasted Turkey

This is a great recipe if you have never made a turkey or have only done a few. I don’t stuff my turkey as we don’t eat a ton of stuffing. I sure do enjoy my mom’s inside the bird stuffing, which I only get once a year. I highly recommend the Never Any Young Turkey from Aldi as it has a clip on the legs so no twine needed and a temp gauge.

I also recommend purchasing a roaster as covering the Turkey after you brown it is key to locking in the moisture.

Boom! I did not even need to carve as the meat just fell off the bones.
Missing is evoo and S&P. So simple.

1 12-14 lbs Turkey

3/4 stick of butter

1/4 cup of evoo

1 tablespoon of fresh – thyme, sage, rosemary and parsley plus a few stems of each for inside the bird


1 lemon cut into 4ths

4 gloves of garlic

3 carrots roughly chopped

4 stems of celery roughly chopped

1 onion cut into 4ths

2 cups of chicken or Turkey broth

Move your oven rack to the bottom 2/3rds of the oven and preheat to 425.

Remove giblets from bird, rinse with water and pat dry. Let sit to air dry.

Meanwhile put butter and tablespoons of herbs into a small food processor. Purée and add evoo through the top.

Rub butter all over the bird and under skin. The add S&P to the top of the butter.

Place chopped carrots, celery and onions at the bottom of roaster. Place bird on top. Put garlic, rest of herbs on stems and lemons inside the bird.

Add broth to bottom of pan.

Roast for 30 minutes with no cover at 425. Reduce heat to 350. Cook for 145 minutes or 2 hours. Check temp, should register at 165-170. Remove and let rest for 30 minutes.
