A flavorful blend of spices to create a blackening seasoning that goes perfectly on shrimp. Add the sweetness and crunch of the pineapple salsa with creamy avocado slices, cilantro and lime wedges, and you'll have the most delicious Blackened Shrimp Tacos ready in 10 minutes! While scrolling through Facebook one night last week, my friend's [...]
Dollops of peanut butter filling placed in brownie batter and swirled together creating thick, fudgey, rich brownies you'll love! Just as easy as buying a boxed brownie mix, but tastes even better! Let's just say I've never made from scratch brownies before...ever. I know! That's so bad! lol I can remember my twin sister, Emily, [...]
I'm still in weekend mode after a fun couple of days! On Saturday I met up with my mom, who I haven't seen since last Fall. My parents are staying at their camp, which is about an hour away, for the summer. My mom and I went to the local farmer's market, which we ended [...]
What I'm looking forward to in June: weekly farmer's markets, visits to camp, strawberry picking, a trip to Shelburne Farms, and of course, soft served ice cream!
Fresh Pineapple Salsa made with chopped pineapple, red onion, red bell pepper, cilantro and jalapeno. Serve as a dip with your favorite chips, a topping on fish, or it pairs perfectly in shrimp tacos!
Old Fashioned Banana Pudding layered with nilla wafers, silky vanilla pudding, sliced bananas and homemade whipped cream. My co-worker and I love the show Fixer Upper, and one day we were talking about Joanna's new cookbook, Magnolia Table. I remember sending my co-worker a video clip I saw online of Jo and Chip on the Today [...]
I can't believe tomorrow is already June 1st! Where has this year gone?? Seriously it's flying by. We just had snow last month and it's already summer flying by! Since last weekend was Memorial Weekend, the "unofficial start of summer" the wedding count down has begun! In just over 2 months I'll be walking down the aisle! Choosing a ceremony and reception location was touch, but Lance and I picked the locations that were meaningful to us.
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.
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!
When Lance and I have a lot going on usually last minute we'll decide to go on a date night or hang out with our friends. I tend to put on something pretty casual. My go-to is always jeans and a t-shirt, but I paired this look with black mules and a grey duster to make it a little more chic instead of an everyday jean and tee style.
