So I made my very first meal in my brand new Le Creuset dutch oven last Sunday!  Sunday Night Stew!  Courtesy of the ever-amazing Ree Drummond aka the Pioneer Woman !  The result was probably one of the best stews I’ve ever did stew!  Maybe it was in my head but I felt that the pot was soooo heat retentive, perfect for slow cooking meat.  And with some creamy homemade mashed potatoes on the side…it was divine!  Great for a Sunday night when you have a few hours before dinner free.  And then you can have leftovers all week!  Check out the recipe here.

Oh oh and I’ve been mashing my own potatoes for awhile but I just discovered the secret to EXTRA creamy potatoes…a dash of whipping cream!  Do it, you won’t regret it!
