  1. Made the Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken last night and it was very good. We loved it. So simple with so few ingredients. Thank you so much for the recipe. Looking forward to trying some of your other recipes

  2. Sabrina, tu es spĂ©ciale et j’adore regarder tes recettes, je crois que c’est l’une des premières choses que je fais le matin dès mon arrivĂ©e au bureau si je n’ai pas d’urgence. En tout cas, toutes mes fĂ©licitations. Tu es un chef hors pair. Tes recettes sont faciles et tu as du goĂ»t pour les dĂ©lices.

  3. Hi Sabrina,
    Love your recipes! I’m starting to use the Ninja Foodi and wonder if you have any recipes for it?
    Thanks!
    David

  4. I was looking at your Slow Cooker Chicken Breast with Gravy recipe and saw your Homemade Chicken Gravy Mix recipe. There is an option of replacing the packets of gravy mix with 4 TBSP. of your Homemade Mix. Is that 4 TBSP. per packet in the recipe, or a total of 4 TBSP. for the entire Slow Cooker Chicken Breast with Gravy
    recipe. Also, If I were just wanting to make a cup of gravy for some other use, would I use 2 or 4 TBSP of the mix?

    1. To replace the packets for that recipe, you’ll want to use 4 tablespoons total. If you’re just wanting to use the mix for a cup of gravy, just use 2 tbsp of the mix. Hope this helps clear it up. Enjoy!

      1. Thank you, Sabrina! That was my guess, but assuming has not always had good results for me! I am so glad that I found your site! I keep sharing the good news!

  5. I always look forward to your recipes because every one I have tried have turned out so well, and delicious. They have been favorites of my friends and family. Thank you.
