  • We’ve had enough cold weather lately to last a lifetime. But when it’s cold outside, it's a treat to have a hot meal in the slow cooker ready when you get home.

    Crock Pot Sweet Garlic Chicken is one of those tasty treats.

    The first draw to this recipe was the photos posted with it. It looked absolutely delicious. My hopes were high for this one.

  • The New Year is just a month old and hopefully your resolutions still are going strong. If they’re not, here are some tips to sustain your 2014 goals.

    Just start. There are some days when you don’t feel like heading out the door for a run, or figuring out your budget or whatever it is you’re supposed to do that day to meet your goal. Instead of thinking about how hard it is and how long it will take, tell yourself you just have to start.

    Have you ever had the feeling of déjà vu? It seems like my last article I was apologizing for missing getting my articles done and then last week I did the same thing. I am sorry. I am making it my New Year’s resolution to get it done every week for the rest of the year. Maybe it’s the cold weather that is affecting my brain and making me so forgetful. I am so ready for warmer weather.

    KENTUCKY WEATHER. More snow is what we got. Some say we got about three inches. The snow came rather quickly when it finally did come. I don’t mind the snow, but I don’t like those frigid cold temperatures. My dogs, Roxy and Reese, don’t like it when I take them outside either.
