Chili Chicken & Peppers

Well, I am back with another super easy chicken recipe 🙂

Chicken is our go-to dish for any night of the week.  We grill it (on an indoor grill), bake it, pan fry it, stuff it, or even throw it in the slow cooker.  But, as I am sure you can appreciate, when you eat chicken almost daily, you really need to experiment with flavours or else you will get bored.

Roasted Carrots and Brussels Sprouts

I find something very comforting about roasted vegetables.  I love how a hearty, meaty vegetable turns soft and luxurious when it has been roasted to perfection in the oven.  It really represents the winter months when you turn on your oven and find yourself roasting or baking most of your meals.

Madras Beef Curry

My New Year’s Resolution this year was one new recipe a week.  I have a lot of cookbooks, and I often look through them as if they were novels, but I have a hard time following recipes.  I always add a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Not that it is a bad thing, but I thought maybe I should try to follow some recipes as they are written this year 🙂

Spicy Pulled Chicken Sandwich

Cold winter days really leave me craving comfort food.  Now I know that it is the beginning of the year and I should be thinking of salads and raw vegetables to help balance out the extra food I ate over the holidays, but I am really in the mood for a sandwich!

Sticky Slow-Cooker Chicken

Well here is a surprise for everyone, this entry doesn’t include any bacon!

Now that the cooler weather is here, I find myself using my slow cooker more often.  There is something so satisfying about coming home after a long day of work and smelling your dinner when you walk through the door. I also like to use it on the weekends as it frees up the oven for important things like baking cookies 🙂

Spicy Bacon

Bacon.  I love bacon.  It is one simple food that is absolutely delicious on its own or enhances any other dish. I would eat it every day if I could, and there are some weeks when we do!  Jamie and I have even baked with bacon (putting it in cookies and muffins) and the results are always outstanding.

Spicy Baked Chicken

You are likely expecting another recipe that starts with white flour, milk and some kind of fat (butter/shortening).  Well, we can’t eat like that all the time, no matter how much we would love to, so I thought I would share with you one of my week-night favourites.
