Good Eats - Maple Mustard Chicken Thighs

Those who read this little blog may remember a post a while back about poulet a la moutard.  I just love that recipe.  It's incredibly easy to make but it does take a while to bake.  Some days I just don't have the time.  But I love the flavor profile so much, I was hoping I could find something similar that didn't require so much time.

I found a great recipe by Ellie Kreiger on the FoodNetwork.  Ellie is a nutritionist and heath food nut (which I love.)  The recipe is a littler healthier than the other version (not being served with pasta) and is really delicious too.   A key ingredient is maple syrup which is chock full of zinc and other antioxidants.  I just love it when sweet mixes with savory.  I've got a bit of sweet tooth and this does the trick.

You can get the full recipe here.

Recipe substitutions: I used french tarragon in lieu of marjoram because I wanted the same flavor profile.

Pixel Scrapper July 2017 Blog Train

This was a lot of fun!  Most of my artist endeavors have fallen to the wayside now that the kids are out for summer.  I was able to squeeze out a little time for myself.  I needed a few backgrounds to scrapbook our trip to Florida this year, so I created the backgrounds and elements below.  Enjoy!

Low Fat, Vegan, Spicy Senegalese Peanut Soup

I had the most amazing vegan soup at Revolutionary Soup the other week.  I haven't stopped thinking about how delicious it was... and that was two weeks ago.  I wondered if I could come up with something similar on my own.  I scoured the web and found some delicious looking recipes but none of them were quite right.  I ended up having to play around quite a bit.

While experimenting, I tried versions with lite coconut milk.  I figured if it worked, I'd then work on finding a lower fat alternative but it really didn't add much at all to the dish.  I ended up omitting it all together.  By contrast, the curry powder was absolutely critical.  It added incredible depth to the soup.  I used Tandoori seasoning (my favorite curry powder blend by Penzey's).

I was able to reduce the fat in this dish quite a bit by using PB2 in lieu of full fat peanut butter.  Powdered peanut butter has all of the flavor of peanut butter but 85% less fat.  You can find it at the link I provided or…

Scrapbooking THAILAND Freebie!

After years of neglect on this blog, I'm reemerging so I can share one of my passions: scrapbooking.  I've been doing scrapbooking for over 15 years.  I started out scrapbooking on paper but I have transitioned over to completely digital scrapbooking in the last 7 or so years.

Most of the time I just use whatever freebies I can find but I wasn't able to find a lot of scrapbooking elements and papers to properly document my Thailand travels so I decided to create my own.  Thailand is a very vibrant country and I went with very saturated colors to reflect that.

I hope you are able to enjoy this freebie.   Please feel free to leave me a link to what you create with it!  You can download this kit for personal use only here at dropbox.

Also, here is a link to a new collab project I'm working on with Pixel Scrapper!  You can download the elements/papers individually here.
