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...]

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.

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...]

Greek Chicken Red Quinoa Salad


Red Quinoa is becoming increasingly popular lately but I don't normally cook with it for one reason. My husband hates it! So I've been scratching my head here trying to figure out how to get him to eat his quinoa, because let's face it we all know that quinoa is highly rich in nutrients. But no matter how healthy quinoa and how good it may be for you, I just couldn't convince him to eat it. Until now! He loves Greek salads, he'll buy them or make them any chance he gets, so I thought to … [Read more...]
