Easy Chicken Cacciatore

Posted in Gluten Free, and Homemaking

After eating salads every day for the week, I had a craving for something different. I didn’t want anything complicated as it was just me eating, and I didn’t want to make the drive into town to get ingredients. After looking at I what I had on hand, I decided on this easy version of chicken cacciatore. You can cook up your own boneless, skinless chicken breasts, but I happened to have some already cooked sliced chicken breasts in the freezer that I decided to use to make cooking even easier.

Slow Cooker Roasted Stuffed Breakfast Peppers

Posted in Gluten Free, and Homemaking

We’ve been fortunate that our chickens have continued to lay throughout the winter. Even though their laying has slowed down some due to the shorter days, I still end up with extra eggs around the house.

The Importance of Teaching Your Child to Cook

Posted in Family, and Homemaking

Over the years, I’ve taught Munchkin basic kitchen skills including food safety, kitchen safety, cooking, and cleaning. At a young age, she learned how to follow a recipe to create a meal or make a dessert. They were skills that I knew would be important later in life, and they came in handy from time to time when I was ill or unable to prepare a meal. Little did I realize at the time how critical these skills would become to help take care of our daily needs. I’ve been off my feet for two weeks now, and during this…
