Whenever I’m asked to list my hobbies, I always wonder if “reading cookbooks” is included as a hobby. Since it is a favorite pastime of mine, I always write it down.
I would keep a stack of cookbooks on my bedside table and pour over the recipes nightly, marking pages with scraps of sticky notes to save the ones I wanted to make.
I still read cookbooks. I have shelves full of them in the built-in bookcase in my living room and another several lined up on the baker’s rack in my kitchen. If I’m being honest, I don’t spend as much time with the paper version of cookbooks as I used to.
It’s sad, really, because there’s nothing I love more than opening my Southern Living cookbook and having to unstick the pages where you’d find their banana bread recipe because I’ve splattered on it so many times, or knowing exactly where the strawberry jam recipe is in Better Homes and Gardens because the edges of the pages are stained pink.
These days, I find a lot of recipes online, which is also fun, and I discovered last week that it’s literally impossible to scroll by a recipe that calls itself “Stupid Easy.”
I did change the name because in my house growing up, “stupid” was akin to a curse word, and I’ve kept that going in my own household.
So, this “Super Easy Slow Cooker Chicken” recipe isn’t just super easy, it’s super economical as well, as boneless chicken breasts are on sale at Brookshire’s this week. No matter where you find your recipes, you can always count on Brookshire’s ingredients to make them an instant family favorite.
