Happy New Year, friends! I hope you all had a fun and relaxing end to 2014. We enjoyed a fabulous staycation here with my sister who came to visit us from Seattle, and we’ve been slowly getting back into the swing of normal life. This last week I spent a good chunk of time making some changes to my website that I hope will make for easier navigation, and a more streamlined experience. It’s still a work in progress, so if you have any requests or comments, I would love to hear from you. As always, I have been experimenting with creating recipes in the kitchen, and here is one of my new favorites: The Easiest Pulled Pork Ever.
It’s almost Thanksgiving!
I love this time of year. The weather in my neighborhood cools down to a perfect 78 degrees, and everyone starts to get super festive with get togethers, holiday activities, and lots of yummy food. I had my girlfriends over on Saturday evening for a potluck and jewelry party (you can check out my friend Chun’s dainty pieces here), and my contribution to the dinner table was this Slow Cooker Chicken Curry that turned out to be a hit. I make this dish probably 2-3 times a month, and I almost always put it on the menu if we are entertaining guests. Aside from being a crowd pleaser (it’s even kid-approved), it’s an easy, fool-proof recipe that requires little prep time, and then the slow cooker does the majority of the work for you.
