Venison Rump Roast Yum!

It's that time of year to fill the freezer with venison.
Brown a rump roast and cut up onion in a small amount of olive oil. Spice the meat, add one package of onion soup mix and 2 1/4 cups water.
Add potatoes, veggies, bring to full pressure then cook for 15minutes (for a small roast.) Let pressure cooker steam off by its self.
Add Progresso bread crumbs small amounts at a time to make a thick gravy. Serve!
Add a salad, fresh bread and eat up. Fantastic meal in one pot.

How to improve a box cake mix

While at the visitors booth this morning I met a baker from Chicago. Unbelievable cake decorator! She proceeded to share her boxed cake secrets, little did she know I don't bake. Here it is,
 Never buy a box cake needing butter-
 add one extra egg, add just a bit more oil than it calls for, Always use milk, never water, add 1/2 package of vanilla pudding-no matter what the cake flavor is, if you add the pudding than increase the milk 1/4 cup, bake as directions say.
 Let me know if you try it.

Cabbage Steaks Yum!

This is a simple side dish worthy of a dinner party and couldn’t be easier to make. Four ingredients, a couple of minutes to prepare and toss in the oven for an hour.
 1 (approx 2lb) head of organic green cabbage, cut into 1″ thick slices
 1.5 tablespoons olive oil
 2 to 3 large garlic cloves, smashed
 kosher salt
 freshly ground black pepper
 spray olive oil OR non-stick cooking spray
 1. Preheat oven to 400F and spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Pull outer leaf off cabbage (it’s usually dirty and nasty looking), cut cabbage from top to bottom (bottom being root) into 1″ thick slices.
 2. Rub both sides of cabbage with smashed garlic.
 3. Use a pastry brush to evenly spread the olive oil over both sides of the cabbage slices.
 4. Finally, sprinkle each side with a bit of kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
 5. Roast on the middle rack for 30 minutes. Carefully flip the cabbage steaks and roast for an additional 30 minutes until edges are brown and crispy. Serve hot and Enjoy!
