A quick, easy, healthy dinner is my number 1 priority on late work nights.  By the time I get off of work I am hungry, tired, and grumpy!  Super grumpy.  And all I can think about is dinner, PJ’s and the sitting on the couch.

That’s why this BBQ Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potato is perfect!  Just throw the chicken breasts and BBQ sauce in the slow cooker in the morning, throw a few sweet potatoes in the oven as soon as you get home from work, and in 30 minutes and about no work later, dinner is ready!

There’s just something about peanut butter that’s comforting.  Am I right? And chocolate.  That goes without saying.  Chocolate heals everything.  If we learned anything from Harry Potter, it is that chocolate has healing power. (Yes, it is Harry Potter season, so we currently have a HP Marathon going on in my household…you will see lots of HP references in the near future, my sincerest apologies.)

So what happens when you stick those two together into a delicious dessert?! This Chocolate Kiss Peanut Butter Cookie – that’s what!  And these cookie have magical powers.  They are that good. (more…)

Chinese take out is one of my favorite things to order on late work days.  But, ordering takeout so often gets both expensive and unhealthy.  So, I’ve been trying to find quick and easy recipes that I can whip up after work that will quench that craving!

Honey Sesame Chicken is super easy to mix up and is reminiscent of some of my favorite take out dishes.
