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 🙂

Peanut Butter Crumb Topping

I have to admit, I don’t always bake from scratch.  It’s not because I don’t want to but we don’t always have the time or all the ingredients needed on hand.  There are those times when you have to cook for a pot luck at work or for your child’s school bake sale, and weeknight baking takes up a lot of time after getting dinner to the table and lunches ready for the next day.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

So I am back with another baking entry.  I can’t help it, the heart wants what the heart wants 🙂

Jamie and I spent 6 hours in a car yesterday, and when we got home, I really wanted something sweet and salty.  Well, the best combination to satisfy that craving is made with Peanut Butter and Chocolate.
