Hello everyone! It was a glorious long weekend, full of grilling and family once again. Naturally we celebrated grill-style.
The husband has been craving Mushroom Chicken. This is NOT gourmet. It is a slap it in the crock pot recipe. It is very tasty, but not grilled, and not not not gourmet. We were visiting Granny over the weekend, and I needed something nice to make. That and the husband’s craving culminated in my takeover of the kitchen and a lovely gourmet meal that everyone enjoyed.
Now let’s gourmet that up a notch! BAM!
This meal was so much fun. Granny and the husband had a grand and gourmet meal. Granny had a blast helping me set up for the photos that we took. I really enjoyed showing her what I do, not just telling her all about it. Try gourmet-ing up your favourite go to meals. Tell me how it goes.
But here is the Crock Pot version. Fantastic if you have no time and little in the way of ingredients. You can also substitute pork chops for chicken in this recipe and use all milk instead of water and milk.
Like I said. Cheap and dirty, set and forget.
With Candied Bacon
Basically I saw this and said the words Stout & Chocolate Cheesecake With Candied Bacon to my husband, the Baron of Baking. Stunned, he stopped everything and slowly turned to me. “Yes” was all he said.View Details
With Roasted Potatoes
Glazed carrots and roasted potatoes were both always on the menu when it came to any major family holiday meal. These dishes were prepared in the same way every time and passed down from mother to daughter for at least four generations. Today I am going to share with you a new take on the classic Roasted Carrots, and tell you the secret (as per my mother’s mother) to the perfect Roasted Potato.View Details
