A Mom’s Life chronicles the humorous moments when a mother learned more from her little girl than her daughter did from her. Like the time her toddler made a lop-sided gingerbread house or beat her mom at Clue or wanted to quit ballet to take karate. In addition to stories, the book includes simple recipes and fun family activities. Whether you’re a mom, a grandmother, an aunt or a teacher, this book will make you smile as you reflect on the unexpected joys little ones can bring.
A sample recipe from the book:
Boo-boo Bistro Chicken
This is the recipe I made using thyme which my daughter thought could heal her cut.
Everyone in my family loves this and it’s super easy. Best of all, you can buy the chicken in bulk, rub the spices on ahead of time and freeze it. When you know you won’t have time to cook, defrost prepared chicken thighs overnight in the refrigerator then put in the oven an hour and fifteen minutes before dinner.
Serves 4. Cook time: 1 hour and 15 minutes.
4 chicken thighs
2 t. dried basil
2 t. dried thyme
2 t. dried rosemary, crushed
4 t. olive oil
1 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
4 garlic heads
Preheat over to 375 degrees. Combine spices-- basil through pepper. Loosen skin from thigh
with fingers then rub the spices under skin. Line bottom of broiler pan with foil to ease clean-up, then place chicken on broiler rack in pan. Remove papery skin from garlic heads, keeping cloves together. Cut off tip of garlic. Wrap each head separately in foil and place on broiler pan with chicken. Bake for 45 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 450 and bake 20 minutes more.
Remove from oven, cover chicken loosely with foil and wait 10 minutes. This is when I bake the rolls. If you want to be healthy, discard the skin on chicken. (My husband likes to eat the skin, but the chicken is so juicy and flavorful, you don’t need it.) Squeeze garlic onto rolls.
