Shredded Beef Sliders with Carrot Apple Slaw

I think the best way to cook a beef roast is in the slow cooker. I love that I can spend about ten minutes puttering in the kitchen, then I sit back for eight hours and, as if by magic, I have a pot of juicy, tender, wonderfully flavorful beef.  Speaking of beef, this is my second in a series of four recipes brought to you by the Texas Beef Council*.  Shredded beef is one of those go-to dishes for me since I can use it in all sorts of...

Chocolate Chip and Candied Bacon Pancakes with Nutella Maple Syrup

Valentine’s Day is coming. We do not really celebrate Valentine’s Day here at Casa Shenanigans.  No heart shaped boxes of candy, no bunches of wilted grocery store roses, and no adult-sized footie pajamas in the mail.  No, we do not celebrate with silly tokens.  We celebrate with food.  Sometimes we go out, but more often we stay in and make something really naughty.  This year I will be making my darling these.  We both...
