Chicken bean and broccoli stew (crockpot recipes)

My obsession with beans continues after a couple of days of eating pizza. After my fall this weekend, I wasn’t able to move much on Sunday night and most of yesterday. When you can’t put weight on your knee, you can’t cook. And so, I ordered in on Sunday and ate the leftovers for lunch…

My best chili ever (stovetop recipes)

It’s another cold winter day as I write this recipe out for you, but you’ll read it tomorrow as I’ve already posted twice today. I’m taking a couple of days off from writing in my novel to catch up on some housework. And boy, today was a productive day! I got all my dishes done,…

It’s Friday! Which for many people is the happiest day of the week because it means the weekend will be here in a few hours. For me, someone who is at home all the time – I’ve started some new weekly habits that I think will help to pass the time as I’m trying to…

Chicken and vegetable stew (crockpot)

The other night the temperature dropped again to -40 and I thought what better time than to get out the crockpot and make a stew.

Vegetable and barley soup (crockpot recipes)

Crockpot Recipe: chicken and fall vegetables

Earlier this week I broke in my crockpot with an Italian meatball and pasta meal and it was delicious. I decided to get the crockpot out again the other night and try a chicken dish. I had been craving potatoes for some reason and carrots for a few days, so I thought the perfect combination…

We’re back in isolation … again.

I wasn’t going to write today but after a provincial announcement yesterday, I’m livid and heartbroken. We’re entering into another “lockdown” so to speak. But not really. The rules are murky at best. People are confused. There’s a lot of panic going around today about getting vaccine passports and such. All I want to say…

Roasted chicken and vegetables

I’ve been craving roasted chicken lately and I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s comfort food. Or maybe it’s because I’m eating healthier and clean foods these days. Yesterday was a dark and dreary day and I decided to whip up some comfort food . Roasted chicken with whatever vegetables I had on hand. Preparation for…
