I've Been Featured: Moldmaker

Bonjour, mes amis!

As you can tell, I am not utilizing my blog space as frequently as I have been in times past.  Many of you know that I've changed job positions (new school, new grade, new curriculum) and I'm in grad school as well.  What you may not know is that I'm carrying 12 credit hours this semester (and next) because I'm working on a joint degree.  One part should be over in May, then I defend my portfolio, and receive an additional license.

It has been quite the sacrifice, but when I take a moment to think of all that is transpiring and whom I may be encouraging along the way, then I know that it is worth it.  Recently, I had the honor of being interviewed by The Scholar Vlogger as the first Moldmaker in her "Moldmaker Series."  If you're interested, feel free to stop by her blog and read the post.  It'll give you a little heads up into what I've been up to.  And if you choose to leave a comment, please leave it on The Scholar Vlogger site.  :-)

Slow Cooker Butter Chicken {A Taste of India}

Hello lovelies!

I'm not sure what it is, but lately I've been having a taste for Indian food.  If I could have a wish fulfilled right now (concerning Indian food, that is), I'd love to eat at the Curryblossom Cafe.  My cousin hosted a baby shower there, and let me tell you, um um good!  Plus, I love Vimala's philosophy that no one should go without food because they cannot pay.  Food is a human right.

Meet Vimala.

Now, nothing I cook will light a candle to what Vimala prepares, but since I can't go there, I will make do with trying dishes at home that satisfy my taste for Indian cuisine.

This time I tried a new dish in my crockpot.  It's a butter chicken recipe that can be found HERE.  I love all of the flavors and despite the name "butter chicken," the flavors are totally different from what I imagined.  When I thought "butter chicken", my mind went to savory flavors, like what you would taste from roasted chicken.  Totally different!  Just imagine the flavors of coconut milk, and curry, and garam masala, and so much more.

Here's a video of me preparing the dish.  (The first part of the video is a joint birthday party for 3 little ones.)

 Bon Appetit,
