Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken ~ Love It or Lose It!

I found this WW 6 Points Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken recipe here:
http://www.stellabskitchen.com/2010/01/ww-6-points-crock-pot-teriyaki-chicken.html?m=1

I love anything Teriyaki so I gave it a try!

I cooked almost 5 lbs. of Boneless Chicken Breasts & this made plenty of sauce!
I started my crockpot on High for the first 2 hours since I decided to try this recipe at 11 am on the day that we were having dinner guests...
After 2 hours I rearranged the chicken breasts & lowered the crock pot to low.

I followed the recipe exactly with the exception that I used 2 T of Chopped Garlic & I also added 2 T of Teriyaki Sauce that I had on hand.
I also seasoned with Kosher Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper.






I'm on the fence on this recipe... It was very tasty however next time I think I will cook the chicken breasts in the oven instead of the crockpot.
Loved the marinade but not the final look if that makes sense...
Oven for sure next time!

My Two Cents... People


I am starting a new series called "My Two Cents..."

Random thoughts regarding painting, blogging, Facebook & other musings.
Today's subject is regarding people.

I have to say that I have met the absolute nicest people during the time that I have been painting & selling furniture.
I receive emails, comments/reviews & even random Etsy/Facebook messages from people I have not even met!

It is always a nice feeling when someone takes time out of their day to comment on your work!

So to all of my clients, the ones I've met & to the people I have not... 

A Sincere Thank you!!!

Garden Stools

I just love garden stools...
They are so pretty & can be used as a stool, side table, bedside table or anything else that you can think of!
I am in the mood for some warm, spring weather & was thinking about all things outdoors when I started thinking about these cuties!!
Here are some unique stools that I've found!
