Gobble Gobble

I wanted to call this post “An almost 4-year-old and a 40 something year old tackle a turkey”, but I thought that might be a little too long, so I just went with “Gobble Gobble.” Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so I thought this would be an appropriate time to show you how we… Continue reading Gobble Gobble

Chicken Fried Rice on the Blackstone

I was looking for a quick weeknight dinner recipe that incorporated the Blackstone since its now back in the rotation. It occurred to me that chicken fried rice would be perfect.

Something about bloggers claiming “the best” anything just turns me off. Makes me not want to even try it. A… Continue reading Not “The Best” Marinade for Chicken

Fajita Chicken Wings with a Creamy Chipotle Dipping Sauce

     Some of you may know that yesterday was National Chicken Wing Day (7/29/14). If you lived in my house, you would have known for sure. One of my favorite food holidays of the year. What’s not to love? Crispy, bite sized food? You’re expected to use your hands? People don’t frown down on you… Continue reading Fajita Chicken Wings with a Creamy Chipotle Dipping Sauce
