Here are a few of my favorite smart & easy recipes

Slow Cooker Pork Taco Recipe

Slow Cooker Pork Tacos

No time to prepare a roast in the oven for pulled pork? Let your slow-cooker do the work overnight or while you are at work. The fork-tender pork is slowly cooked with traditional Mexican spices and a shot of pale ale. Fill warm corn tortillas with some pulled pork and top it with quick homemade Pico de Gallo.

French Onion Soup Recipe

French Onion Soup

I tweaked one of my favorite soup recipes to save time with an electric pressure cooker. My take on a French classic includes fragrant, sauted onions in a mouthwatering beef broth seasoned just right. Top each serving with a crisply-toasted baguette slice and plenty of gooey Gruyere cheese.

Baked Homemade Mac And Cheese Recipe

Baked Mac And Cheese

Don’t settle for neon orange macaroni and cheese from a box! If your family loves this classic comfort food, wait until they try my homemade version! Make the velvety cheese sauce with freshly shredded cheese—not the powdered mix. It has a delightfully crunchy crumb topping that bakes golden brown in about 30 minutes.

I'm CHEF Bear

I’m your Julia Child-loving, recipe creating, cooking-is-fun kitchen side-kick.

I believe that food should spark all five of your senses. Meals should be easy to prepare and delicious to eat and share. I use fresh and seasonal ingredients.

The kitchen has been my sanctuary since I was a child.

I want the kitchen to be your sanctuary, too.

Because a good life includes good food.

What do my early fans think?

CHEFBEAR, and Robert changed a lot of things. I can cook a meal in less than an hour. The kids love the food and I don't have to stress about it. I even know what "mise en place" means!!

My husband and I both work long hours and have very limited time in the evenings. We used to live off of frozen meals and fast food. I needed another option. Robert convinced me to try CHEFBEAR. That was the best decision I've made, since I got married!! We get a delicious, fresh meal made in about 45 minutes or less.
