Five Ingredient Chicken with Sweet and Spicy Broccoli


I realize it’s been two whole months since I posted a recipe so am way overdue. I made this delicious meal last month, and it’s super easy to put together. I cooked the chicken on top of the stove, but you can definitely use the grill if that’s your preference. Ingredients 2 skinless, boneless chicken breastsContinue reading “Five Ingredient Chicken with Sweet and Spicy Broccoli”

Honey Chipolte BBQ Chicken Sandwich


I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July with your family and/or friends, and you got to indulge in some really good eats! I came across this recipe yesterday, and it looked so good, I just had to make it. I tweaked it just slightly to suit my taste, and it came out incrediblyContinue reading “Honey Chipolte BBQ Chicken Sandwich”

Slow Cooker Beef Ribs – Set It & Forget It


I fully realize this is my third recipe for boneless beef ribs, but figure everyone can use another great and easy crock pot recipe, right? This literally takes about ten minutes to throw everything together prior to cooking. The sauce is just slightly different from my other recipes, but equally as delicious. You can useContinue reading “Slow Cooker Beef Ribs – Set It & Forget It”

Sweet and Spicy Baked Chicken Wings


On a recent episode of The Chew, Daphne Oz and Mario Batali had a chicken wing cook-off, and after seeing Daphne’s ingredients (and that hers were baked), I had to try them right away. Needless to say, they did not disappoint. I love the fact that the marinade on these babies caramelize while baking, whichContinue reading “Sweet and Spicy Baked Chicken Wings”

Pistachio-Crusted Chicken with Herbs (and Mustard Cream Sauce)


I came across this recipe a while ago, and bookmarked it to try another time. I was at the store over the weekend, and saw a bag of pistachios, which immediately brought my memory back to this dish. However, I highly recommend you buy pistachios already shelled as it took me a bit of timeContinue reading “Pistachio-Crusted Chicken with Herbs (and Mustard Cream Sauce)”

Cafe Nordstrom’s Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette


UPDATE: My expert Nordstrom Cafe taste-tester friend came over to my office yesterday to try out the dressing, and after she paused for a minute, I knew something wasn’t right with the vinaigrette . She said it was still very good, but not THE dressing. So, it was back to the drawing board. I didContinue reading “Cafe Nordstrom’s Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette”

Marinated Goat Cheese Appetizer


Hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th of July holiday! I went to an amazing party with out-of-this-world food, and zoned in on a goat cheese appetizer that was insanely delicious… which I made a significant dent in since I wholeheartedly love the combination of goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and balsamic vinegar!!! Fortunately, IContinue reading “Marinated Goat Cheese Appetizer”

Spicy Honey-Brushed Chicken Thighs


I discovered this recipe last summer and totally fell in love with it, and just realized that I didn’t post it on here. My bad. The combination of the spices with the cider vinegar and honey, makes this both a sweet and spicy dish, which I just can’t seem to get enough of. Yields: 4Continue reading “Spicy Honey-Brushed Chicken Thighs”

Healthy Chicken Wings


Growing up in Upstate New York, Buffalo wings were practically a staple in everyone’s diet. I recall ordering them numerous times, okay, a LOT, while in college, and having them delivered to my dorm. Needless to say, I was amongst the many who gained “the freshman 15”, which then carried over into my sophomore year,Continue reading “Healthy Chicken Wings”
