Last week I was in Columbus, Ohio for the Romantic Times Booklovers convention. I have to admit, I wasn’t too convinced about going to Columbus, but I was proven wrong in a big way. The city is lovely and charming, the downtown area we were in was well-developed and had plenty to offer in the…

This is a recipe I discovered three years ago, when I used to subscribe to the Betty Crocker Dinner Made Easy newsletter, and got dinner ideas delivered to my inbox.

Chicken bog: Dinner

I mentioned I was making chicken bog this week and Gail asked in the comments what it is. It’s something I had never heard of until I met my husband, and had it in a meal at my in-laws house. Josh likes it, and it’s a good alternate use of chicken (or leftover turkey) so…

My brother requested I make Chicken and Dumplings. I asked him if he wanted Chicken and Biscuits or Chicken and Dumplings. He said Chicken and Dumplings. That’s what he got.
