On Chicken Satay & Cucumber Salads

I finally had a weekend to myself and I thought, why don’t I go ahead and make something different? Lo and behold, I had been hankering for some chicken satay, and happened to have a FANTASTIC recipe for chicken satay by one of my go to’s: Recipe Tin Eats! I have been eyeing her recipe…

On Gingerbread Sheet Cake & Christmas

It’s that time of year, when we pull out our most festive threads, put up & decorate the tree (which I think Frankie did a TERRIFIC job of doing this year), and deck our home in Christmas lights and ornaments in all the vases I almost never put any flowers into. Let’s just say, I am…

On Cornish Game Hens: A Thanksgiving Upgrade

Or downgrade if you think about the sizes we’re talking about…MINI CHICKENS!! And oh so good! Yup, just spoiled the ending of this post – DE-LICIOUS! It even came complete with stuffing!!! I was originally just going to make the stuffing and leave it to the next day, but then I realized I was halfway…

On Chicken & Chorizo Empanadas

Since moving and getting my adult side of life in sync again, I have been on a cooking BINGE! Also – meal planning, yeah, I’m a newfound convert! I know I tried meal planning before, but I did it wrong for my life, and by that I mean, I was meal planning so that I…

On Benihana Chicken Fried Rice and Ginger Sauce at Home

How many of us have gone to Benihana’s (or some other hibachi restaurant)? *RAISES HANDS* And how many of us have fallen in love with that delicious, yellow yum yum sauce?! *RAISES BOTH HANDS* Oh yeah, that’s what I’m talking about. Back when I was still living in the States, Benihana’s was where I always wanted to go…

On A Better Fried Chicken Sandwich

Since completing Whole30 with plans to go back to a Whole30-esque diet from here on out after the holidays until the wedding, one of our favorite fast food/late night meals was 100% ruined in the process: Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Sandwiches. We’ve tried them a couple times since whole30—always late at night, and always when we…

On Asian Chicken Salad & Gluten Free Brownies

Cooking With Alex: We did do a quick recipe a couple weeks ago (after Alex was also sick…that summer bug is going around, so watch yourselves!) and I know I never got a chance to post it or talk about it, but since her busy season at work has started to pick up, our weekend…

On Sad Goodbyes, Wedding Plans, CSA, and Other Things

Okay y’all, so I know it’s been a bit of a drought without a good post, but planning a wedding and getting ready (with just about 100 days left to go) takes it all out of you. Plus, I was sick all last week, so my plans to work on a good post last week…

On Seared Barramundi and Post-Whole30

If I haven’t already said it, and I’m pretty sure I have, Whole30 was indeed life-changing. Not only does junk food or fast food no longer taste the same, it’s no longer appealing either. Not that that’s a bad thing, because it totally isn’t (better on our budget and better on our waistbands too), but…
