Chicken Salad Croissant Sandwich

There’s a cafe down the street from where I work that serves the best chicken salad croissant sandwiches. Croissants are my weakness. I can never get enough of that flaky butter deliciousness! Whenever I feel like having something a little different than my usual salad for lunch, I’ll head up to the cafe for their amazing chicken salad sandwich. One of my favorite parts of chicken salad is having all the extras in there – the crunch I get from the celery, apples and sliced almonds is the best. This chicken salad is also made with a lightened up dressing, which is so good! It’s a mix of mayo and greek yogurt with a splash of lemon juice and some spices.

7 Grilling Recipes To Try This Summer

What does everyone have planned this weekend? Any special recipes you’re grilling? I actually surprised Lance with a grill for Christmas. I recommend not buying one off season but that’s another story. lol We put it on the deck a few weeks ago and have made some really great recipes so far! It’s my first time experimenting with the grill, but so far the recipes have come out great! After being at work all day, it’s nice to come home and grill for dinner. It gets me outside a little longer than I normally would be if I was making something in the kitchen. I hope you enjoy the recipes and have a great Memorial Day Weekend!

If your lucky enough to be with your mom this weekend and want to whip something up for her, I’m sharing 20 satisfying Mother’s Day recipes I know she’ll love!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn’t love a good chocolate chip cookie?! I’ve never had one I didn’t like, but everyone has their favorite recipe, right? Mine is this one. A perfectly golden, crispy edge with a gooey, soft middle that just melts in your mouth. The trick I’ve learned is letting the dough rest overnight in the fridge. It really makes all the difference in the world. It’s a little hard to wait that long especially if you’re like me and want chocolate chip cookies right away, but it’s totally worth it. I promise! The ingredients have a chance to blend together making the cookies more flavorful. Also I used mini chocolate chips, instead of the regular size. I think using mini chips gives you that chocolatey bite in every mouthful (which I love!). I’ve made a lot of chocolate chip cookie recipes each always a little different, but after making this one I finally found a recipe that’s here to stay!
