Apologies in advance to anyone suffering from morning sickness.

This past week, I've started feeling hungrier. I'm eating the same amount as usual for now, just more spread out. BUT! I'm thinking about food all the time. I look at recipes, think about food, go to the store and look at food, etc.

Anyone have a good recipe, craving, or other food-related topic to share? I'm all ears (and stomach)!

A can of cranberry sauce hits the spot for me.

In all seriousness, I feel like my morning sickness is easing up a bit, too! I was just thinking of finally trying to cook something for dinner!!

Here's what I want to make:

4 chicken thighs and 4 chicken drumsticks
1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1 onion
2 tsp cumin
16 oz salsa
1 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 cup ketchup

Slice the onion and bell peppers into thin strips. Dump everything except the ketchup in a crock pot. Cook on low for 7-8hours. Add ketchup to thicken sauce as needed and cook sauce only on high for 15 minutes. Serve over a bed of rice.

I miss having a crock pot! I don't have one here! It would really come in handy on low-energy days, I bet! Get dinner prepped before the full evening exhaustion kicks in!

Lately I've been putting garlic on almost everything. But I'm also getting the occasional sweets craving! A couple days ago I made pancakes (with sprinkles & cocoa powder in the batter), and then layered a couple pancakes with a simple syrup glaze and cocoa powder in the middle, lots of glaze & sprinkles on top! I rarely eat sweets, so it was really random! DH thought it was his lucky day, though...

Last night I made a really hearty garlic tomato soup. I added some of every vegetable in the house!

They sound delicious! I love my crock pot! I've made chocolate pancakes before and dusted with powdered sugar before!

My favorite breakfast to make is caramel french toast! Caramel French Toast Recipe - Breakfast.Food.com - 284545 especially when made with the syrup from this recipe!! French Toast With Creamy Maple Syrup Recipe - Food.com - 253511

That caramel French toast sounds SO good! I'm not a big fan of maple syrup, but it kinda sounds good at the moment after reading that recipe!

I suspect I'll be making French toast some time next week.
