One afternoon I decided to look for a different way to bring a variety of vegetables to the dinner table, in a non-stir fry format.  I pulled out some of my cookbooks and started looking at side dish recipes.  Nothing was jumping off the page and grabbing my attention.

Slow Cooker Butter Chicken

I was standing at a supermarket check-out when a Canadian Living magazine featuring Slow Cooker recipes caught my eye.  As I picked up the magazine and started flipping through it, a Butter Chicken Recipe peaked my interest.  Then the dilemma set in; do I need to purchase another cooking magazine, or do I try to find a similar recipe on-line?  My pocketbook won the internal debate, and when I arrived home, I started searching for a Slow Cooker Butter Chicken recipe on the internet.

Raw Brownie Balls

Today the role of guest foodie will be played by Connie’s sister, Cherie.

I am constantly looking for healthy recipes and ways to make not-so-healthy foods healthier. I am known for adding protein powder to just about anything, and sneaking veggies in where they don’t belong – or so I am told 🙂

Coconut Almond Cookie Sandwich

I have mentioned before how I love getting supermarket check-out cooking magazines.  Well, I once again gave into my impulse and grabbed the January/February issue of The Food Network Magazine.  The cover featured a delicious bowl of chili that caught my eye.

Bacon Wrapped Almond Stuffed Dates

These are little bites of heaven, and I thought that they would be the perfect recipe to share leading up to Valentine’s Day.  You may be asking yourself why, and the answer is simple, I love bacon, so this is kind of like a Valentine’s treat for myself 🙂

Green Beans Almondine

Vegetables.  I love them.  OK, I know I say I love a lot of things, bacon, chocolate, peanut butter, etc, but I do love vegetables.  There isn’t anything they can’t do.  Soups, salads, entrées and, of course, side dishes.
