Homemade Granola

IMG_2243

I love granola. Just love it. I’d been seeing on many blogs about how to make it and I felt like it was troublesome – and also figured that it would take a long time to make it taste good. However, my husband demolished half the batch, and he doesn’t even *like* granola. He kept …

Coconut Chicken Curry

IMG_0988

This recipe is by far my favorite one that I’ve made this last week; I ate way too much when I initially made it and also scored all the leftovers. It was the first time I had tried a casserole like dish with brown rice without cooking the rice first, and was amazed at how …

Maple Dijon Chicken

IMG_0974

This Maple Dijon Chicken is inspired quite thoroughly by the Maple Dijon Chicken on Stephanie O’Dea’s blog, but is quite different since I can’t leave anything alone! Ingredients: 4 -6 chicken thighs 1 cup chicken broth (I used homemade frozen) 1 onion, diced 2T stone ground dijon mustard (the kind with lots of seeds) 3T …

Sweet Potatoes

IMG_0982

This post might come across a bit simplistic, but to me it is the “only” way to cook a sweet potato. I might get convinced to try another method if you comment with why it works. For me, the only method to cook a sweet potato is in the oven, over high heat (or grill …

Spiced Spinach Chicken with Almonds (Dairy Free)

IMG_0925

I loved this meal. It was inspired by a few different sources, when I got desperate to use up my fresh spinach, which I purchased before going dairy free and wanted to initially use for spinach alfredo sauce. Ingredients: 1 lb skinless, bone in chicken thighs (this makes a lot of sauce if you use …

Applesauce

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve been able to post – life got pretty crazy around here after I started working, and got the babies on the way. Every year that I can remember, in October we have gone to the Apple Harvest Festival and spent the weekend at Graves’ Mountain in Syria, …

Pork Chops Dijon

IMG_0517

This has become easily one of my favorite ways to make pork chops. It all began when I bought a lot of bone in pork chops on an unbelievable sale… and then couldn’t decide how to use them! After making this, I have yet to figure out how to go back to anything else… they …

Marsala Chicken

IMG_9615

Calling this recipe Marsala Chicken is partially a lie. I have a severe allergy to most red wines and red grape juice and balsamic vinegar… etc. But, I have not yet developed any sensitivity at all to Madeira… and it’s a bad enough allergy that I am quite scared to cook with any varieties I …

Pork and Celery Crock Pot Recipe

IMG_9606

This recipe was adapted from the cookbook “Not Your Mother’s Slow Cooker Recipes for Two” by Beth Hensperger. When I say adapted, I can’t ever leave anything alone! I previously mentioned buying quick-sale meat that has been marked down, and earlier this year I bought a 14 lb pork tenderloin that way. This was using …

Grilled Chicken and Vegetables

IMG_9600

I love the quality of meat that I buy at my local Ingles grocery store. But what I really love, is that many times when I am shopping, I will see the “Reduced for quick sale” sticker on some meat with a close expiration date. Last time I was shopping, I saw a 3 lb …
