Valentine’s is tomorrow and I decided to post this chicken recipe because it would be perfect for a nice meal at home with your loved ones. I can look very impressive but is quite simple to make. My husband commented on how deliciously most this chicken was. The sauce was creamy yet flavorful. I served it over pasta but you could always do rice or couscous instead.
I also wanted to apologize today for the limited access to my site this last week. We moved my site to the new server and all was well. Then my husband was fixing some settings on my cache plug in to optimize the site. When he did this it made the site crash. since then we have been trying to get it working correctly. We haven’t been able to get the cache plug in to work at all now.
I have put a call in for some help and hope it will be fixed this week. For now, the site can only tolerate so much traffic so you maybe able to access the site one time but then not another time due to traffic. Early morning and late evening the site is easier to access because of less traffic. Thanks for bearing with me during this time of growth. Growth is good but requires change and change doesn’t come so easy.
