New and Fresh: A Weekly Review

I decided to do a weekly review on the recipes that I cook every week. I will be writing small summaries of each recipe and add the link to the original articles on every post. I also will include that next week’s menu and maybe a cooking tip or two.

On Monday the first, I prepared and shared with you this Honey Glazed Pork Chops with Mushrooms. The pork chops are incredibly juicy with mushrooms to top it off with a dripping honey glaze. It makes an excellent weeknight meal that can be done less than thirty minutes.

Then on Wednesday the third, I told you about me putting my crockpot to work to prepare this hot and creamy Sun-dried Tomato Chicken. The ease of preparation for this recipe is extremely easy and can be on your dinner table less than seven hours. My family loved this dish. It was all gone by the end of the day.

Coming up this week on cooking with Court

Crock Pot Country-Style Ribs and Sauerkraut

My Plans and Goals for 2017

I cannot believe that this will be my last blog post for the year of 2016. It has been quite a year for me as a food blogger. Cooking and blogging have been an excellent and fun learning experience. I want to share with you, some of my plans/goals for my blog for the upcoming year. So here it goes.

My plans are I’ve decided to go back on some of my posts that I wrote and do a lot of proofreading/editing. I too will do picture retakes for most of the photos of the food that I took this year and do my best to make my blog look professional. I also would like to make cooking videos.

My goals are to improve on becoming a better food blogger because I am highly interested in getting sponsorships by some food brands someday. Last but not least, the main reason why I created a food blog; As some of you know, I used to be pretty nervous about using the oven/stove cause of my C.P. (Cerebral Palsy). But since I’ve learned about my amazing gift of cooking that God has given me, I have discovered that I’m losing my fear of the stove.

In fact, within the past few months, I have found that cooking for me is incredibly therapeutic, relaxing, enjoyable, and it has been a great learning experience. My passion for it has grown quite rapidly. Now I want, and I believe God wants me to find other ways of how to share my love for cooking with other people who are able-bodied and or have special needs by teaching them how to cook and help them feel more comfortable working with a hot surface while sharing the love of Jesus Christ.

Also, I would like to wish a Happy New Year to you all! I too want to say “Thank You so much” to each and every one of you for following and reading my articles. I am looking forward to sharing new recipes with you and posts throughout the upcoming 2017 year!

Happy Early Thanksgiving!

I should have written this yesterday, but I was tired lol. Anyways, as some of you already know I have somewhat decided to take a break this week from blogging and write one more blog post after this one.  Why you might ask??? because my brain needs a break lol and plus it’s Thanksgiving week 🙂 However, I wanted to give you the low down of what I intend on cooking this week.

Sunday Night: I prepared Cowboy Chili. This dish is perfect for those cold winter days and will quickly warm you up. And oh lol, If you love a little kick to your chili, then you will certainly dig this dish. It’s delicious!

On Tuesday afternoon I will try to roast pecans, then later that evening I will be cooking  Cheeseburger Macaroni. If you are looking for some true comfort food, then I totally recommend Cheeseburger Macaroni while watching your favorite movie.

On Thanksgiving day I will be attempting to baking Libby’s Pumpkin Pie. Need an idea for a dessert to bake for  Thanksgiving? Then this pie is the perfect one for you. 🙂 It’s incredibly easy and very yummy!

Thanks for reading and have a great week. 😀

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

A Messy Favorite

Hello, readers

Today I am sharing with you on how to make one of my most-liked American foods and that is sloppy joes. I like this version of the dish because it’s full of flavor and delicious. I am very well aware that some of you are not quite yet comfortable using the stove or being around heat but trust me YOU will get there someday. 🙂

Here’s the recipe:

Homemade Sloppy Joes

Ingredients

Two cloves garlic, minced

1lb ground beef (or turkey)

2 Tbsp of olive oil

8oz tomato sauce

1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp of mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Hamburger buns
Sliced pickles

Directions

Set a large saucepan over low heat. Add two tablespoons of olive oil, and saute the garlic for a minute or two until just fragrant and very light golden brown. Add ground beef, increase heat to medium/medium-high, and cook until no longer pink, breaking apart and stirring as meat cooks. Drain grease from meat.
While meat is cooking, make the sauce. In a medium dish, stir the tomato sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, and freshly ground black pepper, to taste, until well combined. Pour over cooked meat, stir, and cook gently for a few minutes until warm. Serve on hamburger buns or rolls with sliced pickles on top.

I also would like to share with you one of my beloved Bible verses that always helps me whenever I get nervous using either the stove or the oven: “This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 NLT I love this verse because it reassures me that God is constantly watching over me regardless of what I’m doing. My hope and prayer for you are to be bolder with your cooking.

Tomorrow I am going to teach you on how can make broccoli taste really GOOD!
