Chicken Pot Pie Crumble

Chicken Pot Pie Crumble

I have discovered that my daughter loves chicken pot pie. Who knew? I think it is pretty yummy too. She skips around the room when she finds out that is what is for dinner. I like it because I can make it earlier in the day, put it in the refrigerator and then my husband can throw it in the oven for the nights when I'm at work. I have a thing with pie crust, though.

Happy New Year 2014 Cookies

This is a compilation of most of the cookies I have made since I started in November 2013. You will notice, the first ones I made didn't get any special treatment in their photographs. But at least I snapped a shot of them for posterity. These are mostly in order of when I made them. You can see how I have improved (or maybe you can't.)   … [Read more...]
