These Honey Garlic Baked Chicken Thighs have a great flavor and cook up so well in the oven. They involve marinating so you need to plan this one out ahead of time to make sure you have enough time to really get the marinade to seep into the meat. [Read more…]
Pulled pork is something that I enjoy making regularly. It’s tasty and versatile. I make this in my crock pot so this is good to make if you have a few hours to let the pork really cook and get tender. Some people like to slow cook this with soda but I prefer spices alone. This is the stand alone recipe I use, I make this and use it for my Pulled Pork Calzones and Pulled Pork Potato Skins. This recipe is very versatile. [Read more…]
I hope you all had a happy new year! The first post of 2014 is for a smoky homemade BBQ sauce. I used to always have a bottle of sauce in my fridge but realized one day in the middle of dinner that I forgot to stock up. I tried making my own and it has been a staple ever since. It’s much better than the bottled stuff. This is great for any kind of meat but really brought out the flavor in BBQ chicken. [Read more…]

I love this recipe so much. It’s so easy to prepare and cook. I usually buy a bag of frozen tilapia individually wrapped by the bag. This recipe works for both defrosted or fresh fish. This is something that every time you have this, the first bite is just amazing every time. The marinade complements the fish perfectly. [Read more…]
This is something I wish I discovered so much sooner! Crispy avocado is like an explosion of awesomeness in your mouth, it is great as a salad topping or as just an appetizer before a meal. This is such an amazingly simple thing but it tastes great! [Read more…]
This is one of my husbands favorite recipes! I usually get a request for them at least once a week and the boys at work get jealous when they see these in the lunchbox! Delicious, easy and less messy that regular tacos, every time I show up at a party with these they are gone almost immediately and I always get someone asking for the recipe. You will need two cupcake pans for this. [Read more…]
Since Cinco de Mayo is this weekend, I decided I would try something new with my leftover avocados. I have never made my own guac before so I decided to give it a shot.
