Peach Amaretto Jam

We tried a recipe online, that was featured on CTV Canada Am. Peach Amaretto Jam.  It sounded good and amaretto in small amounts can add an interesting flavour. The recipe called for 1/3 cup.

Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Chicken Breast

We did half of this slow cooker recipe with 2 chicken breasts, only change was to use just one clove garlic. Slow cooked on low for 4 hrs. It sat in the unplugged cooker for about 20 min by the time we got the other dishes together. A little dry for my liking, no fault of the recipe as it could of cooked for less time. The missus liked it and that’s all that matters. (click the image for a larger picture)

Suppose to make 4-1/2 dozen cookies. Well, it didn’t quite go like that…
