Experimental Trials (or, Life Interferes..Again)

Clearly, the wheels that turn the kitchen have hit a serious speed bump. Despite our best efforts, life continues to rear its ugly head at the most unfortunate times, successfully moving any sort of extracurricular activity to the back burner. We have managed to pop out some truly great recipes, but time escapes us every time we sit down to type! What happened to slow, lazy summers with long empty evenings??  Jan is finishing up Sunday school lessons, participating in 5K races (oh yes. Really.), and preparing for VBS and various other summer  activites. Barbi is working 40 hours a week, interning 6+ hours on weekends, and living with a friend for two weeks (not to mention the other social obligations that come with being a 20-something college girl).  Simple summers are a thing of the past. But we are by no means giving up! After Barbi returns home and Jan finishes her pre-summer prep, we will return full force to the Cookbook Experiment. To satisfy your curiosity until then, here is a short list of what we’ve been brewing:

Almond-topped Carrots with Raisins

Mushroom Chicken and Dumplings

Apricot Cake Crumble

Beef and Cheese Baked Paninis

Southern BBQ Chicken with Sweet and Sour Sauce

Encouragements, tips, tricks, stories, and other bits of feedback are definitely welcomed!  Check back soon for more of our recipes, life drama, pictures, and general culinary catastophes!
