This was a complete fail. I happen to make this on a night where I had a migraine. Husband had to actually feed everyone because I was down for the count. Next day, he said no one ate it. He said it was horrible, yet he saved me the leftovers. I'm brave, so I tried the leftovers, Chicken was not bad. Not fantastic, but it would be something that if I had to, I'd eat again. The peppers were not good. Can't pinpoint it, but they just weren't good. That being said, if I really wanted the chicken again, I probably could do the same thing to the chicken in the oven.
For this recipe, you need to scroll down about 3/4 of the way on the site. I thought this was great! I really enjoyed it. Great flavor. The chicken was a little dry, but I could tweak that if I were to make it again, but I won't be making it again. No one else liked it. Husband and Sunshine just looked at it. Monster ate some, but didn't enjoy it. I think for mosts families though, this would definitely be worth trying out.
This was good, not great. Everyone ate it, even Sunshine, grudgingly. It's not something I would add the regular menu, but it was nice for a change. I didn't follow the directions completely. I'm a firm believer that the point of the crock pot is so I don't have to do a lot of work, so instead of browning and then taking it out when it was almost ready, I just threw everything in the crock pot, shredded it in the crock pot and just left it in there. I don't feel that not following the extra steps hurt the flavor any.
This is definitely a keeper. The kids didn't like it, but I thought it was fantastic, and since I'm pretty much the only one who eats soup in this house, I'm worth making it again. Husband even ate some and didn't hate it. I think my kids didn't enjoy it because the lemon gives it a bit of kick. Now, I didn't completely follow the directions. I cooked it all day in the crock pot instead of on the stove. I added the orzo 30 minutes before we ate. This was so easy to throw together and a great way to use up leftover roasted chicken.
This was not good. It wasn't inedible, but it was something none of us enjoyed. I was surprised by this since everyone in this house loves tzatziki sauce. The marinade made the chicken too rich for our liking.
Success! This was awesome! Everyone ate it. Sunshine didn't enjoy it, but she ate it, so we count that as a win.
These were so good even Husband at them, and he doesn't eat muffins. Sunshine only at the tops and Monster only ate the bottoms, but I expected both of those things. So worth making again!
Even though these aren't food for us, it's a new "recipe" for our birds. Several weeks ago, due to a gas leak, we had two bushes ripped out of our front yard. Lots of birds lost their homes. The kids were devastated. Literally crying about it. So, we decided to make bird feeders to help the birds. These things were so much fun to make, but a complete fail as far as actually feeding the hungry, homeless birds. It's been super dry, so they lasted a long time, and not one customer, at least that we ever saw. Then, one day of rain and the things fell apart. Next time I'll stick to pine cones.
The other day, Sunshine's BFF came over, so we decided to make something special for the two of them. I scanned Pinterest and found these. I didn't have wooden rings, but my neighbor had "rope" type ribbon in pink and purple that I used to make handles. They were super simple to make and cheap since I had all the materials on hand.
