Crockpot Thai Chicken Thighs


There I was this morning in my kitchen staring at these chicken thighs and wondering what I'm going to cook. Yes sometimes even I run out of ideas. As I kept staring at those thighs I got a brilliant idea. The crockpot would be my tool of choice. Now I just needed a sauce to go with the chicken. I open the fridge and stare at it. The jar of peanut butter was right there staring me back in the face. Last night the hand model made me a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and when he put it back he … [Read more...]

Sweet and Sour Chicken


I'm sure somewhere in the world it's warm and sunny and people are wearing their shorts  or short  skirts and flip flops. I envy those people! I wonder does anyone envy me? The snow mountains in front of the house getting bigger instead of melting, snowing every day, wearing my thick winter jacket, snow boots and all? Anyone? There must be some snow bunnies out there. If you do envy my cold snowy weather can we switch? Now I have to tell you about one of my all time favorite foods. Chicken of … [Read more...]

Classic French Cassoulet


It's February, Valentine's Day month. Time for sweets, time for flowers, time for love. And I love this cassoulet. Forget the fancy French name. Cassoulet simply means casserole, so this is basically a French casserole with beans, pork and chicken. My kind of comfort food. But first of all I'm glad it's February. Not that I celebrate Valentine's day or anything, because I don't believe in it, but because it's my birthday month. Honestly I hate the thought of getting older, though really I … [Read more...]

Crockpot Mexican Chicken


Well I've done it again. Another crockpot recipe! But don't hate me, I just got a new crockpot for Christmas so I need to use it, otherwise it would feel all lonely and sad. But I love crockpot meals, so easy and you get the most tender meat and because the meat cooks slowly for long periods of time, you get real nice deep flavors. So embrace the crockpot! Don't be afraid. Like I was! The crockpot will save many dinners. The crockpot is your friend. It certainly is mine! Recently I've … [Read more...]

Easy Chicken Enchilada Casserole


Mexican food is my weakness. Totally! I love all Mexican food. I love going to Mexican restaurants and trying everything on the menu. But I also love to make Mexican food. This chicken enchilada casserole only requires 4 ingredients, so it doesn't get any easier than this.

30 Minute Skillet Chicken Enchilada Pasta


Why is it that the weekends go by so quick? It's already Sunday and I hate Sunday nights, only because I have to go to bed early so I can wake up early on Mondays. I love my Friday and Saturday nights. I wish every night was Friday or Saturday. I sound like a child but it's true. I truly love my weekends. I live for my weekends. Maybe because winters here are so long I feel the need to hibernate. I'm the type of person that can probably never leave home if I worked from home all the time. I'd be … [Read more...]

Mexican BLT with Guacamole


I think I have a split personality when it comes to food. The reason I say this is because sometimes you see recipes like this Mexican BLT with Guacamole or this Thai Chicken Salad on my blog which are fairly healthy and then sometimes you see recipes like Sex in a Pan or this chocolate cake here. Not that there's anything wrong with that, I just wanted you to know that I know. Have I confused you yet? Well here's the thing my friends, you need variety in your life, so here you will find lots … [Read more...]
