Stop Hating, Start Baking

Just finished this cross stitch project that’s now hanging in my kitchen. As they say in the ‘hood, “ Stop Hating, Start Baking”.  If you want one of your own, you can buy the pattern on etsy at https://www.etsy.com/listing/181591669/stop-hating-start-baking-cross-stitch?ref=shop_home_active_1

Pie…It’s Not Just for the Holidays

I’m guilty of having too many kitchen gadgets, but I love my mini pie maker (http://www.williams-sonoma.com/m/products/breville-personal-pie-maker-bpi640xl/), even if I don’t use it often enough. I’m looking forward to having homemade mini chicken pot pie for upcoming lunches. There isn’t a recipe to post because I used store bought pie crust and puff pastry and the chicken pot pie filling was a mishmash of ingredients including chicken thighs, carrots, frozen peas, cremini mushrooms, heavy cream, chicken broth, and thyme.
