This is a really easy tropical-style drink recipe for all you spiced rum fans out there. You can garnish it with some pineapple chunks or one of those little toothpick umbrellas.

This beef stew for the slow cooker has a taste of the Caribbean (brown sugar and rum) that your whole family will love. This recipe is my own creation and uses primarily root vegetables from the ship's hold. Let this cook while you and the crew take on another adventure.

It's not pretty but, it's a tasty, busy-night, kid-friendly meal. It's not 'gourmet,' but it's hot filling and easy. The prep time is generally limited to how fast your can opener works and how hard it is to unwrap your meat. The big bonus is that it's a complete one-pot meal with no chopping, unless you want to.

We like to call it the green drink. It's sweet, it's sour, it's tasty and it packs a real punch so go slow.

I have recently found a love for mixology and experimenting with new and wild alcohol flavors. Substitute diet soda if desired.

You can't go wrong with meat and potatoes, and this recipe combines them in one dish. The recipe was given to my husband by a friend at work who brought it for lunch often. I usually double it for my family; my husband works in a giant tire factory, and has an appetite to match. The smell makes it hard to wait for it to finish baking.

Rum and butter...mmm. A smooth and softly sweet peach pie with lots of layers of distinctive flavor. An original recipe of mine which is the favorite fruit pie in our house.
