A few things that we’ve been enjoying in the kitchen lately (in no particular order)
1. This red sauce from Dinner with Julie
You can just open a jar of store bought sauce or you can spend about the same amount of time and eat this. I dislike sauce from a jar but I will lick the dregs of this out of the pot. Make a double batch and freeze the extra in 500 ml canning jars for lazy mid-week pasta nights.
3. Microwave mug brownies
I know that dessert and I should probably take a little break but sometimes you need warm, gooey chocolate in less than 2 minutes.
4. Our homemade apricot jam
Every time I smear a little of this on a piece of toast I am reminded of summer. It’s not the season to make this but think about it next summer if you find yourself with a flat of Okanagan apricots.
5. Crockpot Chicken Soup
I made this in November loosely based on this recipe. It was super delicious and the leftovers have kept well in the freezer. I used chicken legs and backs instead of chicken breasts to add flavour and cut costs.
