Cooking + Family + Fun = Happiness

Tonight on the eve before my Birthday I prepared for my love ones Chicken Fajita Soup using the crockpot. Yum yum! It too was one of the first recipes I wrote about when I began food blogging. So, I will not be writing a full post about it lol. However, I am pleased to say that I did a little bit of experimenting by adding Penzey’s Fajita seasoning to the soup. It was delicious. 🙂 Later this week  I will write about my cake and a little bit about my Birthday celebration.

Also, I want to say that I enjoy cooking for family and in return, they of course love and love my cooking. 🙂

Thank you so very much, reading!

A new cookbook and my Birthday

A few days ago, I purchased a new slow cooker/crockpot cookbook from Barnes and Noble. The title of the book is 365 slow cooker suppers and its by Stephanie O’Dea. It has a variety of recipes that not only looks delicious, but I am so very excited to share them with you soon. There is this one section in the book that I’m super excited about because the title of it is Meatless. What makes me delighted about this chapter is that it inspires me to start having Meatless Monday.

Furthermore, guess what is coming up less than a month? My Birthday lol. All I want is cookbooks and cooking supplies lol. I enjoy cooking and being a food blogger lol. 😀

Also, for tonight’s dinner, I cooked Honey Dijon Garlic Chicken Breasts. And I had the pleasure of preparing it for my family members. We all loved it! 🙂

Coming up next week 

Baked Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken
Side dish Pistachio with Brussel Sprouts

Crockpot Easy Barbecue Cocoa Cola Ribs

Honey Garlic Pork Chops

Thanks again for reading! 🙂 Have a great weekend.

Let Freedom Ring!

Happy Fourth of July! In celebration of the national holiday celebrating our independence. I, of course, did not cook lol, but I wanted to share with you what my family and I did to celebrate. For lunch, my brother and dad grilled sausage dogs. I ate mine with mustard. Yummy! 🙂 Then later that night I just chilled for the rest of the night and watched a live fireworks display on television. As my ears are for some strange reason sensitive to the loud popping sound of up close fireworks. 

What did you do to celebrate America’s Birthday?

Have a safe and fun Fourth of July!
