I come from a family of women who can cook, at least on my mom’s side.  Even though my dad’s mom was a good cook, I remember the fire detector going off quite frequently. If you asked, I would say that I inherited her cooking skills. I always cook on high and I normally burn what I’m cooking. It’s for this reason that I prefer to use a slow cooker, a grill, 9×13 baking dish and the same five recipes.

Thankfully, I married a man who can cook. My husband cooks Thanksgiving dinner. I simply brew the iced tea. Oh, and he can make a delicious pot of gumbo. Over the past seven years, he has taught me a few things (like how to turn the burner down).

Wallace sistersOn a recent trip to Indiana, he visited a local Amish store and purchased Cinnamon Rolls and Mixing Bowls cookbook: Special Feature complete meals by Amish Housewives. This cookbook has 888 recipes.

While flipping through the cookbook, my husband came across this Juicy Roast recipe from a dairy farm in Ohio. Looking for a new twist on the traditional pot roast, he made it. We both liked it. This past week, I tried making it. In preparation, I asked him numerous questions because I didn’t want to mess it up.  The roast turned out really good. From my house to yours, here is how to prepare on our now go to roast recipe.
