My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Beef and Snow Peas


Beef and Snow Peas

Typically I try to share some story about the recipe I'm about to share with you.  I don't have one this time.
This is just a recipe that my family loves.
A super fantastic, easy and delicious recipe that goes into a bi-monthly menu rotation!
It's one of those recipes that you really can't mess up and after making it a few times you can improvise with the ingredients.

What's also important to me with this dish is that my kids LOVE it.  It's a dinner where I don't have to worry about someone crying over it!  And in my life right now, that's pretty high on the priority list!

I've also made this recipe with broccoli and it tastes equally as great!  Just choose a vegetable your family will eat.
