Mango Chicken Stir Fry

Chicken Mango Asparagus StirFry Overview

If you’d been around me recently you’d know that I’ve been all about hardcore effort recently.  I’m supposed to be on a 30 hour a week schedule, but I’ve been logging somewhere between 42 – 45 hours a week, plus you add in my normal class responsibilities and I feel like I basically do nothing  but work (and some cooking ...

Slow Cooker Ham and Vegetable Bowl

Slow Ham and Veggies Overview

I think you may have noticed that I’m a big fan of my slow cooker. I use it almost weekly.  It’s the perfect appliance for those nights that I have class and I’m gone from 9am to 9pm.

Twenty…more…weeks… *sigh* But my birthday is Monday (yay!) and my ... Read More »

Slow Cooker North Carolina Style Pulled Pork

Slow Cooker North Carolina Style Pulled Pork

I’m not sure if I’ve ever fully expressed my love for North Carolina Barbecue. I’m a bit of a purist with it too – I like it almost straight up vinegar with no tomato, ketchup or mustard to muss it up.  A simple mix of cider vinegar and some seasonings and I am in heaven. There’s just something about pork ... Read More »

Roasted Mushroom and Goat Cheese Sandwich

Roasted Mushroom and Goat Cheese Sandwich

I needed a quick and easy meal.  Why? Because honestly; I was feeling lazy.  I wasn’t particularly busy or anything, I just didn’t really feel like moving or going to a lot of effort. Sometimes you just have days like that. And if you tell me that you don’t then I’m pretty sure you’re an alien… But anyway, so yeah, ... Read More »
