April

Hey hey. Happy April!

I love this month for a few reasons. School is almost over for Penn State, the temperature is beginning to warm up (ha..), the birds are chirping, and this April Jimmy and I celebrate 4.5 years of dating.

I want to share two recipes today.

First up, Southwestern Slow Cooker Chicken. This recipe is so simple and flavorful.

If you have a slow cooker, I recommend giving it a try. You won’t be disappointed! This recipe can also be doubled to feed large crowds. I can vouch for this because my mom and I made a double batch this weekend to feed my whole  family, Jimmy, and my brother’s fiance.

The above picture should give a clue as to how simple the recipe is!

The second recipe I want to share is Triple Chocolate Nutella Cookies.

I made a batch of these on Friday and packaged some up to give to Jimmy as an Easter gift. The rest stayed at my house and are almost gone 😉

That’s pretty much all I have to say today. I’ve just been working on homework and hanging out with my little sister because she has this whole week off of school for spring break.

I’ve also been playing with Felix! He’s fitting in with our family very nicely and we all love his outgoing personality.
