Sometimes, you just need a great slow cooker go-to meal. Something you can throw together quickly on those busy days and have ready for you when you’re done running around and you’re ready to eat. Or hell, sometimes you just don’t feel like cooking. And that’s okay. Because that’s where an awesome slow cooker meal, like these Lemon Garlic Chicken Thighs and Red Potato Bowls come in.
Once upon a time, many years ago, I stumbled across a food blog from a woman named Chrissy Teigen. Charmed by her witty and sarcastic sense of humor, drawn in by her refreshingly honest writing, and drooling at the food she was creating, I was smitten.
Have you ever had a dish that you knew was probably easy, but for some reason you were intimated to make it? The first dish that comes to my mind that intimidates me is Shepherd’s Pie. Random fact, I’ve never actually even had shepherd’s pie. My parents never made it when I was growing up, it’s not something you can commonly order from a restaurant menu, and when I look at recipe for one I just get overwhelmed. The second dish? Chicken Pot Pie.
You guys. 34 is officially here and I’m DETERMINED to make this my year! I’ve mentioned before how I felt all over the page turning 33, and even though the beginning of 2017 wasn’t the kindest to us, I just have the most positive mindset.
Happy 2017! I’m FINALLY back with a new recipe and I shared my 2017 goals with you last Friday, but I didn’t really explain my mysterious disappearance over the last few weeks of the year (unless you followed my IG!). Okay okay, so “mysterious” is probably a bit of an embellishment. It’s making me sound way cooler than I am; as if I went on some exotic vacation or adventure, when I didn’t.
Hello Sunday! I hope you’re all enjoying this last day of the weekend and preparing for a great week ahead. Me? I’m recovering. From an amazingly fun weekend, but recovering. I’m only a couple weeks shy of turning 34 and found that after 30 my ability to bounce back from a fun-filled weekend isn’t quite the same.
Happy Thursday! Are you ready for your weekend? It’s almost here, and we have quite the busy weekend ahead of us. A trip to Pet Smart to shop for Wrigley, a wine night get together on Friday, two ugly sweater parties on Saturday, then another get together on Sunday. I typically enjoy having at least one night at home on the weekend, but this is going to be one of those ‘how is it Monday already?!‘ weekends that I’ll need to recover from.
