Recipe Redo: Slow Cooker Philly Cheese Steaks

Lots of things going on over at the B household right now – Jenny B (me!) is currently working 7 days a week, somehow managing to post at least 3 times a week and attempting to get my craft on again.  Unsuccessfully, but I’m trying at least.  You can see my latest fail on my Instagram feed.  Mr. B is working mad amounts of overtime because its available and because we want to buy a house.  I also want to get completely out of debt by the end of 2014.  And Nero the pup is sleeping and shedding a lot.

For my email subscribers, I’ve switched from Feedburner to MailChimp this week and so far I’m liking my test emails – I would love to hear what you think since this is the first email you’re receiving with the new setup.

I also have exciting news! I’ve signed up for the Great Cookie Swap!  To say I’m excited is an understatement.  Basically, I will bake 3 dozen cookies and send each dozen to a different food blogger.  In return, I receive a dozen cookies from 3 different people.  And I blog about the whole thing.  I’ve been brainstorming what kind of cookies I should make, and am totally open to suggestions.  Right now I’m leaning towards a cookie my Grandma used to make every year at Christmas.

I’ve also joined Massive Sway.   If I’m successful in it, I will start offering sponsored content to my readers.  I literally joined this week, so I’m not sure where it will take me on this blogging adventure, but we will all find out together.

Speaking of this blogging adventure, I have to admit – I’ve been a little discouraged lately.  I want to chalk it up to being overworked and overtired, but I don’t really know.  I recently sent out a request to my Facebook friends to help me get my page likes to 100.  Some great people helped me and I went from 73 to 87 views.  And that’s it.  I have 483 Facebook Friends – that’s 483 potential page likes.  Eh.  And to top it all off my pageviews are drastically down from last month.  I’ve posted way more this month than last month, so I am a little confused.

What do you blog readers want???

Okay, enough about that.  I think I just had to vent for a second.  Or maybe I can thank this week’s Martha Stewart debacle for making me feel bad about  my blogging self.

On to the recipe!  I tried the original recipe from Six Sisters Stuff several times, and I found its just missing something.  After a few experiments, these are additions that we liked the most: mushrooms, Worcestershire Sauce, black pepper and hot sauce (for me!)

I’m not saying the original recipe is bad – its not! We just wanted a pop of extra flavor.
