Pineapple Chicken Melt Sandwiches

The Pineapple Chicken Melt Sandwich is one of those things my mom made for us all of the time growing up.  It was an all-time favorite meal and now that I’m married, I make them for my husband, who is just as much in love with them as I am! The flavors of this sandwich are to die for, but I must warn you.

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever!

On my last post, we featured some really amazing Paleo chocolate chip cookies that I made for one of my friends while we were having a movie night.  Before our “Gluten Free” cookie extravaganza started I was making my go-to for chocolate chip cookie goodness.
