It will be 2015 in one month. I am really looking forward to it! I tend to get super positive this time of year – making plans and resolutions and getting excited about everything the new year holds. That includes quite a few adventures in the kitchen, which is always thrilling!
Sometimes, though, you aren’t really in the mood for something extravagant or daring. You need something that reminds you of simpler times, something like the ever popular beef stroganoff. It is made of a few basic ingredients and delivers robust flavours that will keep you wanting more. This is perfect for a Monday night dinner – comfort food with minimum effort.
