My Mama's Easy Roast Recipe

Put one roast in a 6 qt crock pot then sprinkle with dry onion soup mix. Top with one onion quartered, carrots, and potatoes. Cook on high 6 hours our until meat is completely cooked.

I mash my carrots with a fork and put butter on them, mash potatoes with a fork and put sour cream on them, and put salt and pepper on everything! That is the best way to eat this roast...just like my Mama!

Homemade Vanilla Icing

1 egg
1/2 cup Crisco
4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup milk
1 Tbsp vanilla

Mix all together with hand mixer.  You can dye it any color you want!

4 Ingredient Pizza Dip

Click here for the recipe.

This was good but next time I make it I will make the following changes so it is SUPERB!

First Change - 1/2 C ricotta
Second Change - 1 C italian cheese
Third Change - cut pepperoni's into small pieces to equal about 3/4 C.
Fourth Change - Mix everything together and sprinkle top with just a little cheese, then bake.

I think this way might be easier for us to eat. The layers are hard to scoop out and honestly my hubby and I both thought there was too much ricotta and not enough pepperoni.
