  1. I made this for company this evening and everyone enjoyed it! I served with rice, but unfortunately did not have any slivered almonds on hand. The steps did not include when to add the 1/4 cup water and the corstarch, but I assumed it was to be added at the end to thicken the sauce, so I did. Very nice crockpot recipe, Geema!
  2. As excellent as it was easy. This is a great variation for crockpot chicken breasts. I followed the recipe exactly as written, and I wouldn't change a thing. Served it with rice and broccoli.
  3. Learn from my mistake and do not make this recipe. My DH who will basically eat anything, said this was painful to finish, and my daughter refused to eat more than one bite. The chicken didn't really pick up an orange flavor. It was more like unseasoned baked chicken in a strange and unnaturally sweet orange liquid. This one will not be making it into my rotation.
  4. Sorry, I followed this recipe exactly and no one in my family cared for it.


<p>Life often interupts our comfortable routines in very unexpected ways and in the past three years I've certainly faced some challenges.&nbsp; As a health nut who ate mostly vegetarian I was beyond shocked to discover that I was diabetic.&nbsp;<img title=Yell src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-yell.gif border=0 alt=Yell /> I shouted and rebelled and cried.&nbsp; But the good news is that I can control my glucose levels simply by eating very low carb.&nbsp; What a complete turn around it was to&nbsp;pass up&nbsp;all my high carb vegetarian foods like grains, and veggies and embrace meat!&nbsp;<img title=Surprised src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-surprised.gif border=0 alt=Surprised /> I've adjusted to this limited diet and thanks to Zaar can eat a nice variety of healthful meals.</p> <p>&nbsp;The next challenge was a freakish fall I took while in New York with my daughter that left me paralyzed and in much pain. I thank God that I am so much better today after more than two years recovery, with total mobility and just some minor pain in my arms and hands.&nbsp; Cooking and communicating here was not really on my priority list.&nbsp; But, I am back in action and ready to cook, take photos, and enjoy this wonderful community of friends.<img title=Laughing src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-laughing.gif border=0 alt=Laughing /></p> <p>My husband and I continue to enjoy our grandchildren and being closely involved with their day to day activities.&nbsp; I am also the proud owner of a sweet grey and white cat who came to my door as a little kitten 6 months ago.&nbsp; Her name is Bonny and you can read her story here:&nbsp; <a href= target=_blank></a>.</p> <p>&nbsp;When I have time for myself, I love to do all things artistic...drawing, pastels, paper craft, scrapbooking, and most recently jewelry making.&nbsp; I have set up a website on ETSY ( shown on this page by my website)and you can go there and see my creations.<img title=Cool src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-cool.gif border=0 alt=Cool /><br /><br /><br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /></p>
