Pictures (6 months over due)

I've been meaning to take pictures of the girls for quite some time so these are long over due. It's been a year and a half since the last time I had their pictures taken. I really want to improve my photography and the best way to do that is by taking them myself. Easier sais than done however. It took two days. One day of setting up and testing the lighting, then another day to actually take the pictures. I would do it more often but the subjects of my pictures are quite unwilling. Makes it difficult. But anyway, here they are. I posted some on Facebook but not all.  Please tell me your favorites of each girl to help me decide which ones to put on the wall.

Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken

I forgot how much I like sharing recipes until recently a friend told me that she missed the recipes I used to post. She said that she would often come to my blog to look for new recipes to try. I don't tend to be very adventurous when it comes to cooking because I am, I admit, a picky eater.  It's been so long since I've posted any I'm sure I'll have plenty to share. The one for today is a recent addition to my go-to recipes. It's easy and delicious. I found it on Pinterest a while back and just recently tried it. I've already made it twice. Throw it over some rice and add some stir fry vegetables and you've got yourself a good meal.

Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken

1 lb chicken breasts
1 C. chicken broth
1/2  C soy sauce or teriyaki sauce (I do half and half....don't know why)
1/3 C. brown sugar
3 cloves garlic, minced

Put chicken in crock pot. Mix all other ingredients and pour over chicken. Cook on low 4-5 hours or high for 3 hours.

Garnish with sesame seeds and/or stir fry veggies. Serve over rice.

Hope you like it!
