Easy Sweet and Sour Chicken

Easy Sweet and Sour Chicken

This sweet and sour chicken has been the most popular recipe on my blog since I posted it when I first started blogging! It was actually one of the reasons I started this food blog. I had posted food pictures on my personal social media and had people ask me over and over again for different recipes. So I decided to start posting recipes and pictures and have been doing my food blog ever since!  So when I was approached by my childhood neighbor (who has a great YouTube channel here) to film my 1st YouTube video I knew exactly …

Key Lime Pie Waffles

Key Lime Pie Waffles

One of my favorite things about my food blog is creating new unique recipes using products that my family loves. That is why I always have so much fun creating recipes for Krusteaz. Especially when it is using their waffle or pancake mixes. When the challenge was to create a spring time breakfast recipe for the month of March all these green were on my mind. So I decided on key lime waffles. Then add a little streusel topping because lets be honest who doesn’t like streusel then top with a coconut syrup and these things knock it out of …

Easter Bunny Sugar Cookies

Easter Bunny Sugar Cookies

Last year I went to a fun cookie decorating class at Petite Party Studio and learned a few tricks with making sugar cookies and decorating them. Ever since then I have been hooked on decorating cookies. Unfortunately it is one of those things that I like to do when my kids aren’t around. Most of my cooking I do with music going and my kids running wild around me. Decorating sugar cookies I like to do in the quiet with no kids running wild around me. Maybe its a little therapeutic for me. Either way I love it!  These bunny …

Tie Dye Easter Cupcakes

One of my kids favorite things to do for Easter is dye Easter eggs. It is an absolute hot mess but they love it so it pretty much is a free for all!

Yummy, but Easy Potato Salad

Yummy, but Easy Potato Salad

I spend a lot of time cooking with my mom. She owns a catering company and also does gift baskets and different treats for professional offices around Arizona. I am her right hand person and I love it. One of the benefits to working along side my mom is that I get to spend a lot of time with her and her friends and neighbors that stop by through out the day! A few years back she had a neighbor named Kjersten that I absolutely love. She would come over and hang out with us while her kids were at …

One hour French Bread

One hour French Bread

A few Sundays ago I was making lunch and wanted a bread to go with my chicken madera. I didn’t have much time and all I had was what was in my house. So I whipped up this french bread! Not only did it take one hour but it made two loaves so I was able to use one that day plus turn the other one into french bread the next day. I am not going to lie I grab the bakery bread at my grocery store all the time. It is so cheap and I use it from garlic …

Last week I ate this salad for 3 days straight. Some of those days I had it for lunch and dinner. I was obsessed with it and was sad when everything was gone and I couldn’t throw this salad together!

Also have fresh healthier ingredients always seems to help too! When taking pictures of meals that I make …
