Do you ever get tired of basic chicken recipes? We have done a lot of grilling this summer (which is good and fun, but we were tired of the usual grilled chicken and needed a break) These turned out really well, I recommend trying them! This recipe can easily be adjusted for personal taste. Like…

I’m back! With “Guilt Free Mexican 7-Layer Dip”!

It’s been a while since I have blogged any recipes. I started a new job last year in May, which required a lot of travel in the first year…so I slacked. However, things have really settled out well now – and I’m home a lot more and back in the kitchen! This time with cool…

I love Chinese takeout. A lot. Especially if it’s been a crazy or stressful day. It’s by far my favorite comfort food group, and my favorite thing to eat as I binge watch Netflix.

Needless…

Lit salsa verde chicken tostados…

Most of my life revolves around food, so I guess it makes sense that this blog would start with food posts, ha. I’m either making food,eating food, or simply thinking about what the next food I make and eat is! Sounds sad, I know, but before you judge I have some good reasons. First, I’m…
