    Copycat Pizza Hut Breadsticks

    When I was in elementary school, Pizza Hut used to do this thing called “Book It” – I think that’s what it was called anyway. You had a chart to record your daily reading amounts and when you completed the chart you could bring it in to Pizza Hut for a free personal pan pizza. It was my favorite thing! So aside from the delicious supreme personal pan pizza I would get, my family would always get an order of the breadsticks. I love the Pizza Hut breadsticks. I can probably count on one hand the amount of times I’ve been to Pizza Hut in the last 5 years on one hand…

    Spring Forward VoxBox

    I love getting surprises in the mail. Who doesn’t? Last week I got this Spring Forward box VoxBox from Influenster featuring 3 items. Lemi Shine Dishwashing Detergent – a dishwashing detergent that is biodegradable and non-toxic made with powerful citric extracts. The detergent are dual chamber pods with a powder and gel combo. I love the feeling of getting my dishes washed so this is great! Gold Bond Neck & Chest Age Defense Cream – This cream for your neck and chest has SPF in it so it’s great for the warmer weather on the way. With the warmer weather and more skin showing, this is a must. SmashMallow Cookie Dough…

  • Sheet Pan Teriyaki Shrimp + Snap Peas + Pineapple


    Sheet Pan Teriyaki Shrimp

    Who doesn’t love sheet pan meals? Anything that requires minimum amount of dishes gets a thumbs up from me. Last year I was looking for a sheet pan recipe and I just so happened to have a can of pineapple in my pantry so this teriyaki shrimp, snap peas, and pineapple sheet pan recipe was one I wanted to try. It looked so good and it is! For this recipe you’ll need: pineapple cut in chunks (I used canned chunk pineapple) brown sugar snap peas uncooked shrimp olive oil salt & pepper Now the original recipe also gives you the ingredients and recipe for a homemade teriyaki sauce, but I…

  • Turkey Chili + Crinkle Fries


    Turkey Chili & Fries

    The weather is starting to get warmer, but with being stuck inside so much lately I think we can all use some comfort food. Chili is one of those comfort foods for so many. I’ve shared a chili recipe on here before – a family recipe. This time I’m sharing an equally delicious chili that I’ve been making for about a year. I found this recipe on Pinterest last year and it’s so good, I’ve made it multiple times and I’m actually planning to make it later this week! For this recipe you’ll need: olive oil onion garlic bell pepper ground turkey chili powder cumin dried oregano cayenne pepper salt…

    April 2020 Favorites

    Another month over, can you believe it? I can’t believe we’ve been in quarantine for about 6 weeks already. Sometimes it feels like the time has gone by really fast and other times it feels like forever. It is hard to believe that the whole month of April has gone by though. For this month’s favorites, I have a lot of tv related things since I’m watching a lot more these days. First, I was obsessed with the Food Network Tournament of Champions. It was so fun to watch! It’s like March Madness but with famous chefs.   Next, I have been watching Hawaii Five-O for the past 10 years and early…

All you have to do is shred or chop some lettuce, dice a tomato, and bake your chicken tenders according to package instructions.

    Baked by Melissa Delivery

    Have you ever had the little tiny cupcakes from Baked by Melissa? They make all different kinds of little tiny cupcakes that are literally like bite size pieces of heaven. I first went to the shop and tried their cupcakes years ago – I believe shortly after college and that’s a while ago. I think my friend told me about them because she had heard of the shop and so one day when we were in the city (New York City) we went. Anyway, I remember them being so delicious and Tie Dye being my favorite – still is! Since that day that I first tried them, multiple locations have…

  • New Orleans BBQ Shrimp


    New Orleans BBQ Shrimp

    Have you ever been to New Orleans? I have been there once, years ago, shortly after college. I went there for a few days during spring break with one of my good friends. She was teaching elementary school and I was substitute teaching at the time so we went during spring break. It was a good time, sightseeing and relaxing. Unfortunately, my friend has since passed away and I have written about that here and there over the years, but I will always remember our trip and all the laughs we had. So when I was in New Orleans I actually didn’t eat a ton of seafood, which is surprising…

  • Korean Beef Over Rice


    Korean Beef over Rice

    I don’t know about you, but I love the flavors of Korean meat. Last year I tried out this recipe that I found for Korean Beef over Rice and it is extremely easy and tasty! It’s the perfect weeknight meal and is an easy meal for you to throw together with items you may have available already during this quarantine. I followed the recipe exactly the first time I made it and I pretty much follow it still today, with one tiny little tweak. For this recipe you’ll need: ground beef garlic brown sugar soy sauce ground ginger salt & pepper crush red pepper rice green onions sesame oil First,…
