Simple Moo Shu Chicken

Sweet Chili Fried Chicken


The weather is still cold but we are trying to not eat totally from cookies, candy and doughnuts trays. As Christmas gets closer it seems more and more difficult to get dinner on the table. The busier we get the less I seem to want to spend time cooking. So, we took some shortcuts on…

Simple Chicken and Potatoes with Gravy


I started playing hand bells in September. It has been difficult. I am a former music teacher so I can read music and I thought this would be fun. I have never played hand bells before but thought it can’t be that bad to learn something like this. I was wrong. I am like that…
