Simple Shredded Chicken, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Style!

Ok, ok, before you look at this photo and think, “What are the weird chunks?”, I’ll tell you, that’s peanut butter!  I thought Mole sauce needed a kick of peanut butter (you know, mole sauce has cocoa as an ingredient, which is where I got the inspiration for this recipe).  Last year when I first got… Continue reading Simple Shredded Chicken, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Style!

Olive Crusted Cod in Foil

When Nick and I started dating he “hated” olives, but not anymore.  Keep this in mind ladies (and gents); if your significant other claims to “hate something”, feed it to him or her anyway because if they are anything like Nick they will eventually learn that they actually don’t mind the food at all.  Of course this… Continue reading Olive Crusted Cod in Foil

Who Knew My Dad’s Chicken Cacciatore Was So Simple?!

There were always three things my dad made really well when I was growing up; Pizza, Chili, and Chicken Cacciatore (ok, four including the fudge he makes at Christmas, and actually five if you include his Chicken Marsala, I forgot about that one…).  Not too long ago Nick and I went over to my parent’s… Continue reading Who Knew My Dad’s Chicken Cacciatore Was So Simple?!
