BIG News

So, we've got some big things going on in the EMM house as of late. If you've noticed, new recipes on the blog have been few and far between since the beginning of the year, and there is a very good reason as to why.

Many of you follow me on Facebook, and already saw the announcement, but for those that don't, here it is...

That's right, I haven't been doing too much cooking lately, but I still have a bun in the oven! We are over the moon excited, and while the first trimester has been kinda rough, it's all worth it. 

But now you can understand why being in the kitchen and creating new recipes hasn't really been at the top of my list. When you've got "morning" sickness that lasts all day long, and most days you are too sick to leave the house, things get put on the back burner. 

However, there have been a few days here and there when I have felt up to cooking, and even trying something new, and I am always sure to take advantage of those when they come. Such was the case when this recipe came to be. It helped that it only took about 15 minutes of effort from me, and the slow cooker took care of the rest! 

This is a great "set it and forget it" meal. It is truly that effortless. I added some bread and fruit on the side and dinner was done. 

We are thrilled to be able to share our exciting news with all of you, and I hope you will be patient with me if things continue to be a little slow around here for a while.
