Mississippi Roast

Mississippi Roast is traditionally made by placing a chuck roast in a slow cooker and simmering it beneath a stick of butter, a package of ranch dressing mix, another of “au jus” gravy mix and a handful of pepperoncini. But replacing the packaged mixes results in a luscious tangle of deliciously tangy beef that goes beautifully with mashed or roasted potatoes or egg noodles, or as a hot-sandwich filling.

Icons of “aloha“, these traditional symbols of Hawaii mean welcome, friendship, respect and love. They are heavenly feats of flower architecture and definite eye candy for a colour lover.

Road Trip: Riding a Scenic Highway (USA). 'The pull of the open road is forceful in a land as wide open as Alaska, and the highways here are as unique as the state. Make the 126-mile Seward Hwy a day trip, stopping to catch the bore tide, watch beluga whales or Dall sheep, or simply take a hike. Spin across one of the largest continual wetlands in North America on the Copper River Hwy or drive the Alaska Marine Hwy.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/usa/alaska
