A few months ago I tried making my own almond butter, and much to my surprise it was incredibly easy and absolutely delicious! Since that day forward, Jamie and I have not purchased a jar of almond butter (and we go through a lot!) but each weekend we roast almonds and whip up a batch to last us the week. (for us the perfect ratio is 3-1)

This week I received a birthday gift from my good friend Kim. Kim is a fellow food blogger (Strawberry Ginger) and actually inspired me to stop talking about starting a food blog and to actually start writing!
For my birthday, she bought me the coolest gift ever, an actual stock certificate for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia! Once I received it in the mail, I immediately went out looking for the perfect frame. It is now hanging in the kitchen! Awesome!!
You can tell that spring is in the air, as lot of my recent posts seem to be about vegetables. Spring means that the Farmer’s Market will soon be open – Yeah!
When I think of eating a mix of vegetables at dinner, my mind immediately goes to a stir fry. 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.
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.
