Tasty Tuesday!

Happy First Day of Summer! I've tried to look at the calendar more since I almost forgot Father's Day. That's what happens when you work nights and are working on books the rest of the time. One day is very much like another.

I'm still trying to get over that bug I got right before I went to Cincinnati earlier this month. I really don't want to go through that again in New York. Elizabeth Raines is my roomie in NY, and she will NOT want to share a room with someone who's up all night coughing!

Maybe what I need is something hot and spicy to drive out the germs.

This recipe from Diva Donna looks like it might fill the bill. Jesse looks pretty spicy, too!

Slow Cooker Chicken Mole
This is a favorite recipe that my Girls love: Wrap in tortilla's or use a Taco Chip Dip
And I just threw in pierced Jesse again for added Spice


  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (optional)
  • 1 finely chopped canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts


  1. Place onion, raisins, garlic, sesame seeds, chipotle pepper, peanut butter and crushed tomatoes in slow cooker. Stir in sugar, cinnamon, chili powder, cumin, coriander, nutmeg, and cocoa powder. Place chicken in the sauce.
  2. Cover; cook on Low until chicken is very tender, about 5 hours.
  3. Serve with tortilla's or as a dip


  1. Looks like Jesse's mole has come out of hiding.

  2. Recipe looks good too.

    BTW Cheryl. Can't believe you're still not well. You need to rest. Your body is telling you!!Easy for me to say.

  3. That's for sure Mary;)

    Piercings aren't my thing but it looks like Jesse's getting off on them. I can appreciate young dude's fine weasel but then I have to back off....

    @Diva Donna. You'd starve to death at my house;) Sometimes I call a peanut butter sandwich, "dinner." *grin*

  4. Mole? Mole is amazing. I'm hungry lol. Cheryl you need to get completely well. Hunky hunka burning love.

  5. Mole? The mole I'm used to has a lot more ingredients---usually it includes some chocolate, too...but this sounds really good! I'll have to try it while my sister is here! She's coming out to visit, so we can have some fun together, since it won't be about our Mom and all the pains of her death, this visit!! We sisters want to have FUN and do some things we never had time to do while Mom was ailing---shoot some guns, get a massage, see a play, and go to the mountains with a picnic and sit under trees and read all day---that sort of thing! We love the simple things...

  6. I feel better today. Maybe it's finally going away. Not sure...

    Sounds like a great time, Suzy! Have fun!

  7. Hot and spicy works great for sinus problems. This recipe sounds like it might taste a bit like Cincinnati chili--Yum!

    Cheryl, you forgot to mention The Sextet Anthologies Volume 2: Dirty Dancing is available for preorders!

  8. LOL! I didn't forget. When I posted this blog, I didn't know and was too tired to fix it last night!

  9. Hole' Mole' LOL Mary G. And Queen Yah -Yah Did you see Jesse has a pierced Yummydoodle so I guess he likes his spice. Ana? you must be familiar with Mole' down in Texas. Suzy! I did put Cocoa in the Mole' Gosh, I've got to get those books DL to Nook. So many e-books so little time. Take a big swig of this Mole' and goodbye Bugs Cheryl. ENJOY!! P.S. Nancy B. My supper last night was Strawberry Special K with a handful of fresh blueberries because when the hubs works late, I don't cook.

  10. Intrigued by the juicy bait, she moves closer, licking her full, painted lips. At the last second, she backs off, reluctantly and very slowly, having spotted the tonsil hook.

  11. Tonsil hook!! OMG ROFL.
    Why do I read my emails at work?
    I never learn.

  12. Hey, it could happen to me, especially if I was true to my WV, which is "wholdic"... I got the wholdic in my mouth!

  13. LOLOLOL!!

    You guys make my workday bearable.
    Just hard to explain the smile on my face.

  14. Alicia Girl you're dang lucky you didn't get your Tonsil Hooked? Mary G. We're so happy to provide distractions. Alicia will be performing again soon. I'm sure.

  15. Performing? As in, Fellatrix II! Coming to a lap near you!

    Wow, now my WV is "woodismi". As in, "His woodismi favorite midnight snack!"
