I won’t mince words. This is really, really tasty. I have to thank my sister-in-law, Karin, for sharing this recipe with me, and I have to apologize to the rest of you for waiting so long to make it, and share it with you.
It’s really that good.
And it couldn’t be easier to throw together. Read more...(1037 words, 11 images, estimated 4:09 mins reading time)
This, my friends, is EXACTLY the recipe we need for today. This morning, at 5:00 AM, my phone pinged, telling me that my kids officially had their first two-hour weather delay of the season. We only got a couple of inches of snow overnight, but it came down at just the right time to throw a kink in the bus schedule. The kids were thrilled, I was excited to set my alarm for a little bit later, all was well with the world. My husband texted me a while later and suggested I stay at home, if possible, because the road conditions stunk. OK, sounds good to me.

Thursday nights have become increasingly busy around here, so I’ve now dubbed them Slow Cooker Thursdays. There’s no way I’m going to be able to cook a dinner in between shuttle stops, so I’m thankful I have a good number of tasty slow cooker meals in my back pocket. This one can now be added to the list.
I honestly can’t remember a time where I’ve cooked whole, bone-in pork chops in the slow cooker, and I was pretty happy with how they turned out. The pork was fall-off-the-bone tender, and had a ton of flavor from a delicious herb-garlic rub. It was topped with tomatoes, zucchini, and a speedy quick gravy that I made from the leftover juices after cooking. Read more...(729 words, 9 images, estimated 2:55 mins reading time)

I am in love with the new store in town.
If you live in the Indianapolis area, you’ve probably heard the buzz about the new Market District store that has opened up in Carmel at 11505 N. Illinois Street. It’s really spectacular and, if I’m being completely honest, I’m a bit of an addict. It’s only a few minutes from our house and I find myself there a lot lately. (In fact, I’ve been there twice since Sunday.) I was lucky enough be able to attend media events and tours on opening day, and with the behind-the-scenes knowledge I gained, I assure you that it really is a special place, full of amazing people who honestly, truly love their jobs.

Ah, Labor Day weekend…summer’s last hurrah. A time to gather together, slap on some sunscreen, hang out at the pool one last time, and have a cookout. In honor of that last hurrah cookout, I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite summer recipes from past posts to ease your menu planning along. And, now that I’ve had a good look at some of these again, they may be making an appearance at my own house this weekend. Bonus!
My husband is not a veggie burger guy…at all. I can’t keep track of how many times he’s given me that “Why would you do that?” look in a restaurant as I order a veggie burger over something else, anything else, on the menu. I love a good veggie burger, but have found that really good veggie burgers are like finding a needle in a haystack. The restaurant burgers I’ve tried run the gamut from delicious and hearty to mushy and meh. It’s hard to find a really, really good one. I’ve tried a few different versions at home, and I’m pleased to announce that this is the first one we all went nuts over, my husband included.

The Dog Days of Summer have finally hit us in Indiana. After a pretty cool and soggy start, now that it’s just about time to go back to school, the heat has finally kicked in. Not that I’m complaining. At all. I’m still in my “At one point, we lived in Louisiana and Georgia, this is nothing.” frame of mind. It’s just that finally, after almost three months of weather weirdness, it feels like summer. Read more...(580 words, 9 images, estimated 2:19 mins reading time)
One of the reasons I started this blog was because friends and family often turned to me when they needed an idea for a recipe, or help with one they already had. It’s no secret that I’m a bit of a cookbook hoarder, and that I love to spend time in the kitchen. I’ve always loved trying out new recipes. I’m never afraid of being the recipe guinea pig, and Chew Nibble Nosh started out as a place where I could share my findings with my friends and family. It has since blossomed into much more than I ever imagined, which I am extremely humbled by, but at its heart, it is still a place where I share my guinea pig moments.

Today is the last day of school. HOW? I know the teachers may not be in agreement with me, but this year simply flew by. It seems like every year moves faster and faster, and my mommy heart is on the verge of a breakdown. Make it stop! At the end of the day, I’ll have a 7th grader and a 4th grader.
Sometimes, even though the sun is shining, the birds are singing, and you break a sweat when you walk outside, you just need some good, old-fashioned comfort food. This was the case for me this past week, as my allergies have been giving me a serious run for my money. I heard on the news that they are calling this year’s pollen forecast a “POLLEN TSUNAMI”. It’s official, everything is way too dramatic.
That said, I have been awfully sniffly lately, and feeling kind of crummy, so when I ran across this recipe from Eating Well, I knew it would hit the spot. Read more...(907 words, 11 images, estimated 3:38 mins reading time)
