The blizzard of 2013 somehow made me fall in love with my new neighborhood even more. We spent hours stuck in the house catching up on “House of Cards” on Netflix, “Lost” on Streampix and slow cooking some BBQ chicken quesadillas with smoked cheddar and salsa* (delicious!) but thanks to living in the City of Hartford, we were also able to get out and take long, cold walks and wave to the neighbors. City living for the win.

*I have found that slow cooking often produces way too much liquid for my taste, so, I typically let the meat cook on its own (maybe with a little broth) for the first several hours, then drain it and add seasoning and let it cook for another 1-2 hours. In the case of the chicken, I slow cooked the chicken breast in veggie broth for 5 hours, drained the cooker, then added BBQ sauce for the last two hours. Perfection.0
