Crock Pot Recipe: West African Spicy Peanut Stew

I love to cook, but lately finding the time between work, writing and parenting has been a challenge. Enter, crock pot.  I’ve been trying out a lot of crock pot recipes lately for weeknight dinners. I prep the ingredients the night before, after my son is in bed, and stick them in a ziplock bag […]

Craft Beer Week: Drink it in

Green Beer
