Cookbook Challenge Update

So, this week has not seen a cookbook challenge happen *sigh* But then, I knew there would be some weeks where things were a little too busy to be worrying about an untested recipe.

However, I am really pleased to say that last night, I made the Griddled Mustard and Herb Chicken that I posted about here. It was the second cookbook recipe that boyfriend and I had tried, and we'd really enjoyed it. As the only time it takes really is marinating, it's an easy one to add to the weekday repertoire ;)

The recipe calls for tarragon, but we first used thyme (because I prefer it). Last night I used lemon thyme, which I like even more *laughs* It really worked well with the mustard, so I think that will be the herb of choice from now on.

In other news, I have added my blog to CraftRie's Universal Craft Blog Directory.


The aim, I believe, is to find out how many craft blogs are out there and compile a giant list of them. Pretty huge undertaking, but the principle is that you add your blog and then post about it... That way the idea should reach through lots of different bloggers fairly quickly. Just click the image above to go direct to the relevant post :)


  1. Your chicken recipe sounds like something my guys would devour! xx

  2. It's great to know that you enjoyed it well enough to have it a second time.

  3. Sounds like your creativity is extending to the kitchen, which is great!

  4. I will have to try that one. We love grilled chicken of any kind here. Our fav is from Plain Chicken. Instead of mixing my own herbs I use one packet of Italian Seasoning for making salad dressing. We have one called Good Seasonings in the US. They are delicious! And so easy.

  5. Added us to the Universal Crafty Blog Directory. Thanks for the tip. :)

    Did you see Cassandra's recipe for Chicken with Basil Cream? Sadly, I don't eat chicken but that particular recipe sounds divine. I need to find some other meat to put that cream on. LOL


  6. Recipe looks good. I'll investigate the crafty directory, thanks for pointing it out.


Hi, thanks for letting me know you stopped by :D
