So, did I mention that I am getting married? No, well now you know. It’s kind of a whirlwind romance kind of story, and the wedding planning is moving just as quickly. Luckily for me, and for you, your favorite bloggers have gotten together and created the perfect Bridal Shower Menu so you don’t have to……..
This sweet and sticky Huli Huli Chicken will have them coming back for more…and then back again! It’s not an exact copy-cat of traditional Huli Huli Chicken, but that won’t matter…it’s that delicious! Serve it with Hawaiian Potato Salad and/or Steamed Rice and you have yourself a trip down memory lane, on a plate……..
A funny thing has been happening in my head for the past few weeks, I have been dreaming about Hawaii again! I’m not sure if it’s boredom, severe allergies bringing me down, or the Sudafed induced fog that I have been in… but I have been daydreaming about the sand, surf, and delicious foods that you only find in Hawaii. Yes, I do realize that the Hurricane Cocktail was created in New Orleans not Hawaii……..
Well it is Spring again, and my allergies are worse than ever!! How is that possible? I left Iowa hoping to leave my allergies behind, but that is apparently not how it works. I guess I didn’t do enough research on the pollen counts in Phoenix, because they are off the charts. The last thing that I want to do while living in a Sudafed induced fog, is cook. I can barely think straight, so playing with sharp knives or remembering to turn things off becomes a major chore. That is where Simple Chicken Enchiladas Verdes comes in……..
While I was on Whole 30 I spent a lot of time perusing cookbooks looking for fun recipes that could be adjusted to make them “safe” to eat…no sugar, gluten, dairy, etc. I must have been craving Mexican food that day because I grabbed my copy of Pati’s Mexican Table and was instantly mesmerized by her Shredded Pork in Acho-Orange Sauce. I was also on an Instant Pot® kick and decided to recreate the recipe and turn it into Instant Pot Ancho-Orange Pulled Pork……..
Wow, you guys really love Instant Pot® recipes!! I have been overwhelmed by the response and decided it would be a good idea to create more…Give the people what they want, right? So this past weekend I decided to make a super easy dump type recipe that the whole family will love – Instant Pot Teriyaki Chicken……..
Well I made it 3 months without any desserts, I deserve a medal! Whole 30 does not allow any desserts, of any kind, and I wasn’t exactly sure what paleo-fied dessert I wanted to try first. That is until our Feast ‘n Devour group chose Carrots for this months theme, so I knew that I had to make Paleo Maple Carrot Cupcakes with Creamy Maple Frosting……..
The calendar says Spring, but the thermometer says Summer! Not that I am complaining, but I figured I better get this Springtime Chocolate Covered Popcorn recipe out of my head and into the blogishere before it’s time to start creating ice cream recipes again, LOL. Not that you will need a hot oven to create this delicious snack……..
“Eat more vegetables” seems to be the one consistent theme that all doctors seem to agree on. Some want an exclusive vegan diet, while others want high protein and vegetables with no carbohydrates. Do not even get me started on the ridiculous Food Pyramid, or is a quadrangle now? Luckily this Superfood Salad will keep everyone happy, including your belly……..
Have you ever had one of those weeks where you just want to crawl up into a ball and ignore the world? Maybe just pretend that the outside world does not even exist? I just had one of those weeks, and I am trying very hard to move forward and figure things out…starting with this delicious Sweet Onion and Citrus Dressing……..
