Another birthday is barrelling down on me, so I’m putting together a birthday cake wish list that I can pass on to hubby.  Some of them might be wishful thinking, but it’s worth a try! 1. Reese’s peanut butter cup cake If my husband knows me at all, I shouldn’t even have to ask for […]

Recipe love : cooked chicken

There’s nothing quite like grabbing a cooked chook while you’re doing your grocery shopping and knowing that dinner is taken care of.  Sure, you can throw some potato wedges in the oven and call it a meal (I do…), but if you’re feeling a little more energetic here’s a few ideas: 1.  Asian chicken coleslaw […]
