    Slow Cooker Butter Chicken

    I love butter chicken and I found the best slow cooker recipe for it. It is so good that I’ve made it multiple times since I found the recipe last year. I think the key is that it’s a slow cooker recipe because it really allows those flavors to develop. I follow this recipe that I found via Pinterest. I follow the recipe exactly, except I don’t garnish with cilantro cause yuck! I’m one of those people that can’t stand cilantro. I tell this to everyone who asks me about it, but there have been studies that show that for some people they just genetically cannot stand cilantro and it…

    Kimchi Fried Rice

    Years ago I tried kimchi fried rice for the first time at Mogo, a Korean fusion taco place, and it was amazing. Since the place isn’t very close to me, I wanted to try to make it myself. I found this recipe last year and while when I make it it’s not as pretty as in the photos of the original recipe or when I’ve gotten it at Mogo it’s still tasty. When I took these photos (last year) I followed the recipe, but I had extra rice so I just increased the ingredients by a little bit. The only other thing I changed was I kept the kimchi pieces…

    Christmas Chicken Pot Pie

    I really thought I had shared a post on here before on chicken pot pie, but after a quick search on here I found out I haven’t! The reason I thought I’d shared it on here before is because my mom has been making this chicken pot pie recipe for as long as I can remember. At least 20 years. Let’s flash back to my childhood. I have family in Canada and have been to visit many times (Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa). When I was young, my aunt and cousins lived in a small town near Montreal and near where she lived was a shop that sold pies. One of the…

    Sicilian Zucchini Boats

    I’m sharing a recipe today that I found online and have loved so much that I’ve made it multiple times – Sicilian Zucchini Boats! Once you make this once or twice, you get the hang of it and can cater it to your taste or eyeball the amount of ingredients. For the exact recipe measurements, you can click on the link above to the recipe I follow. For the recipe, you will need: zucchinis (halved) salt plum tomato (diced) garlic clove (chopped) parsley (I only use this if I already have it on hand) crumbled feta (I have used block feta before and just crumbled it up myself) panko olive…

    Slow Cooker Italian Chicken & Potatoes

    It’s slow cooker season! Well, to be honest I use my slow cooker any time of the year. But people in general tend to use their slow cookers more often during the colder months. Maybe because slow cooker recipes tend to be heartier fare like stews, chilies, etc. Months ago I made a Slow Cooker Italian Chicken & Potatoes that I found on Pinterest and I thought now was a great time to share it. The recipe says you can use chicken breasts or thighs. I know a lot of people like thighs, but I like chicken breast because I like white meat. Chicken breast does tend to dry out…

    Mexican Street Corn Salad

    Do you love Mexican Street Corn? It’s so tasty, but sometimes you can’t or don’t want to get corn on the cob. Also, Mexican Street Corn can be a little messy to eat. Enter this salad version. It’s the same delicious flavors and taste but in loose corn form. It is insanely good and I’ve made it a bunch of times now. I base my recipe off of this recipe I found on Pinterest and I basically follow the recipe except I don’t use cilantro (cause I hate it!) and I also skip the red onions. The recipe also serves 12 so I always halve the recipe and have enough to…

    Chicken Stuffing Bake

    Happy Saturday! I’m back with another recipe post and I have to preface this by saying this chicken stuffing bake is not the prettiest, but it does taste good! I found this recipe through Pinterest and I followed the recipe except I halved it. Even after halving the recipe, the dish came out more liquid-y/runny than the photos of the original recipe. I read a few comments that said it came out runny, but those people had used homemade cream of chicken soup and I used canned so I thought I’d be okay. Nope. It was still runny when I made it so it’s not the prettiest dish, but as…

    Yorkshire Pudding

    With the holidays arriving before we know it, I wanted to share a yorkshire pudding recipe ahead of time. I first had yorkshire pudding when I went to England in college. I had no idea that yorkshire pudding was actually kind of like a pastry side dish and not an actual pudding. Anyway, I liked it so much that when I got home I told my mom about it and we’ve been making it ever since. I use a recipe from cooks.com. You’ll need flour, salt, eggs, milk, and oil. The recipe is really easy, but time consuming because the batter needs to chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours…

    Wild Rice & Mushroom Pilaf

    I recently shared a cranberry, apple, pecan wild rice which is one of my favorite meals I’ve made via Pinterest. Today’s wild rice pilaf is another one I found on Pinterest and is delicious as well. Although it does come second to the cranberry one! Nonetheless I wanted to share it on here. This wild rice & mushroom pilaf recipe that I found on Pinterest is great. I followed the recipe with two exceptions. Instead of vegetable broth, I used chicken broth. The other change I made was adding a 4th mushroom. The recipe calls for button, cremini, and shitaki, but I added in a 4th mushroom – king oyster.…
