 A few weeks ago, I decided to make Sloppy Joes for dinner. Even from skillet to plate, Sloppy Joes are an easy, quick weeknight meal. But having a perfectly delicious recipe for Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes, going that route just made sense to me. Besides....meal prep u...

 Chicken Cacciatore is one of those dishes that we've all heard of and probably even tasted at some point in our lives. Back in the '40's and '50's it was a star dish at dinner parties, featured on the menus of most Italian restaurants and every housewife with a knack...

Yesterday was one of those days when I didn't have a whole lot of time to make supper but when considering my options, I was really in the mood for something different, something special, something 'exotic', for lack of a better word. But is there a suppertime meal tha...

We've all had one of those days where you stare aimlessly into your fridge and pantry, hoping to God that inspiration jumps out at you and strikes your fancy. This past Sunday, it was a miserable old day here - rain, drizzle, fog, 14 degrees Celsius, (approximately 57...

 In my last post about Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken, I wrote about all of the things that had been going on in our life in the preceding months, adding that it was time to settle back to the business of 'normal' life. Little did I know at the time that life still had a...
