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.
Hubby and I had the vacation of a lifetime in August. 10 magnificent days in Costa Rica.
We filled the trip with tons of hiking, zip lining, canyoneering and deep sea fishing. And we also ate a ton of amazing costa rican food and drinks. Did you know that Costa Rica has their own liquor made from sugar cane? No? Me either until this trip.
Risotto has always been one of my favorite things to order when we go out to eat. But, I’ve always been a big chicken when it came to trying to make it at home. I’ve heard horror stories from friends who have tried to make it and had it come out crunchy, or mushy, or just eww. So I never tried myself. Until now that is. (more…)
Walking down the candy isle at any supermarket or Target around Halloween season is so overwhelming! Bags and bags of candy everywhere! And the sales! Who can turn down those awesome sales! 10-pound bags of candy for like 20 cents! Well, I haven’t ever found that good of a deal, but some come close! (more…)
So, my favorite thing about Chipotle is their amazing cilantro lime rice. Usually, if I’m going to go there for a meal, I’ll break down and order a giant, rice filled burrito! But even if I’m trying to be “good” and get a burrito bowl or salad – I find it very hard to pass on the rice and end up including that as well. (more…)
Pumpkin recipes for fall never get old! The other day, I bought a bottle of pumpkin seed oil from Trader Joe’s. I had no idea what I was going to do with it…but figured that I couldn’t go wrong with a delicious flavored oil. The bottle recommended it for bread dipping and salad dressing, but I figured there had to be another fun way to use it! (more…)
Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies are a fun mix up on the classic chocolate chip cookies. The hubby has always been adamant about “only” liking my classic chocolate chip cookies; and gets mad when I make anything but his favorite. He did, however, admit to loving these! (more…)
Do you ever have those days where you can’t even imagine stepping foot in the kitchen and just want to order take-out? But, takeout will take too long to be delivered, and leaving the house to pick it up is not even an option…put on real pants? Um, I think not. (more…)
Pumpkin Spice Pound Cake is soooo last year. I mean, been there, done that, right? But this Cream Cheese Pumpkin Spice Bread is a great twist on the original classic.
Cream Cheese Pumpkin Spice Bread has a delicious and creamy taste of cheesecake-esque amazingness in each bite. If you’re a fan of cheesecake, you’ll love this bread! (more…)
Summer is slowly trying to slip away. And then…we have a week like this one, where the temperatures are back in the 90s (sometimes I wish I lived somewhere where there is an actual fall season)! So, in honor of summer weather making an appearance in October, I whipped up a batch of cookies reminiscent of my favorite summer treat!
