Angelica’s Pot Roast

I love to make this roast. It’s one of my favorite things to make, but I think I make it too much (lol). My husband gets crazy when I make it too much! xD

Oven Pot Roast

Equipment

  • A deep 13x9 pan or casserole dish
  • Foil
  • Cutting board
  • Knife

Ingredients
  

  • 1 4lb chuck roast or whatever roast you prefer
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 package baby carrots
  • 10-12 baby red potatoes

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 300ยบF
  • Line baking dish with foil (I usually do two strips, twice the length of the pan, and meet them in the middle to make it wide, too)
  • Place roast into center of the pan
  • Wash/de-eye the potatoes and place around roast in pan
  • Place about half your bag of baby carrots around roast in pan
  • Chop up your onion and place generous, large slices around top of the entire pan (roast and vegetables)
  • Close the foil tightly around the entire contents of your pan
  • Cook in oven on center rack for 4 hours (see notes)
  • Let rest for 15 minutes then serve

Notes

Different weights will call for different cooking times. My roast is usually about 4lbs, so I cook it for 4 hours. Here is how you should cook your roast according to your roast's weight:
  • 3-4lb roast -- 3.5 hours
  • 4lb roast -- 4 hours
  • 5lb roast -- 5 hours
You can have fun with this roast, too. Sometimes I sprinkle in some garlic powder, salt, and/or pepper. You can add in any of your favorite seasonings -- like Italian seasoning or ranch! Yummm!!

Oven Baked Bacon

This is probably a dumb recipe to add here, but I keep losing my written one lol. I don’t know why I keep forgetting how to make it, it’s so freaking easy /facepalm

Oven Baked Bacon

Cook Time 20 mins

Equipment

  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper or foil

Ingredients
  

  • 1 package bacon

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400ยบF
  • Line baking sheet with parchment or foil
  • Place strips of bacon, side by side, on baking sheet
  • Bake in oven for 20 minutes
  • Cool on cooling racks or paper towel lined plates (place paper towel between each layer to soak up the extra grease)
  • Dispose of OR save bacon grease for another recipe!

Notes

No flipping necessary, but you are welcome to! Just be extra careful not to splash the grease!

Faux Light Mocha Frappuccino Drinks

This is something I came up with on the fly. I find it super delicious (but now cannot have caffeine. I might try decaf though…) I had a four pack of light mocha fraps. I cleaned the bottles and lids, removed the labels, and removed the printed date with acetone (works on any sticky residue leftover from the labels, too!)

Faux Light Mocha Frappuccino Drinks

Servings 2 9.5oz bottles

Ingredients
  

  • 1 c your favorite coffee
  • 2 packets Splenda
  • 2 tbsp sugar free chocolate syrup
  • milk

Instructions
 

  • Brew one cup of coffee
  • While still hot, mix in chocolate syrup and Splenda
  • Divide mixture between 2- 9.5oz Frappuccino bottles (about a third of the bottle will be taken up)
  • Fill the rest of the bottle with your milk until about an inch from the rim
  • Chill for a couple hours or more
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • These settle much more easily than the original Frappuccino drinks
  • 2 packets of Splenda = 4tsp of regular sugar
  • Mix it up and use your senses! Switch out the chocolate or add to it with a little peppermint, caramel, hazelnut, or vanilla!
