Post image for Crock-pot Rotisserie-Style Chicken

Now this is a good idea.  Chicken that looks and tastes like rotisserie, but cooked in the crockpot.  Here in hot Bangkok at 34 weeks pregnant with these twins of ours, crock-pot cooking is about all I have the energy for.  We have a three day weekend (Monday is a Thai holiday), and filled the […]

I thought I’d be one of those really organized pregnant bloggers with some rhyme or reason to these updates. But I posted one at 24 weeks and here it is 31 weeks and change into this thing called pregnancy, and even though I know I’ll want to look back and remember this glorious time (of […]

Time is a funny thing for me at the moment.  All at once the days are inching slowly by while the weeks seem to be flying past.  Suddenly the arrival of our girls feels just around the corner…as long as I can survive the Bangkok heat and aching back/feet/hips for just a bit longer.  My […]

No food today – just babies. I barely cooked a thing all weekend.  Frank was in Chiang Mai with our visiting friends from Bulgaria, so I’ve been  content on my own with dinners of scrambled eggs, whole wheat toast, and variations on Crunchy Szechuan Green Beans. But seeing as we’ve finally reached the 24 week mark […]

These loaded potato pancakes are good.  Really good. But first, a word on Bangkok.  I never know how much of this news filters through around the world, but Bangkok has been in quite a strange state lately.  Without going into the details, we’re now in day 12 of anti-government protests that have blocked traffic at […]

I’m late to posting my 2013 favorites list, but it turns out that pregnant Jess runs a bit behind on everything, so it’s actually quite fitting.  When I went back through the recipes that got the most views in 2013, most of them were recipes I would have picked as my own favorites for the […]
