Yogurt Marinated Grilled Chicken with a Watermelon, Cucumber, Feta + Jalapeno Salad

I’m a grilling fanatic! Grilling just embodies summer and relaxing on the deck with some yummy white wine. Lately, I’ve been a bit nostalgic for Minnesota. It’s been hitting me hard! I day dream about the warm summer air and the view from my family’s backyard. The lily pad-filled pond, the tall trees and lush gardens. It’s always been my little slice of paradise. A place to feel relaxed and safe. There’s

Lavender, Rosemary and Lemon Roasted Chicken

For weeks now, I’ve been eyeing the progress of my sweet little lavender plant. Checking and waiting. Then checking and waiting some more. When that final moment came and their delicate blooms vibrantly showed their faces, I lovingly picked away as many as could be spared and threw them into the insides of a chicken. I never knew just how amazing lavender could taste until I paired it with some rosemary, lemon and

Sweet + Spicy Beer Can Chicken with Jalapeno Beer Gravy

Beer can chicken has been something people have been cooking for years, so this is definitely not a new feat at all. It is rather comical to see that chicken propped up on top of can of beer.

Sriracha Lime Chicken Skillet

In our house, we usually eat chicken 3-4 nights a week. I like that it’s easy to cook, healthy and a great source of protein for my husband. I say this, because at the beginning of 2015 he starting weightlifting and trying to eating better, which is fantastic for me! What girl doesn’t love a buff guy?  However, you can only eat chicken so many times before it becomes redundant

Avocado-Lime Chicken with Perfectly Steamed Rice

I saw this recipe the other day and immediately knew this was a match made in heaven.  Avocado anything is pretty dang good and I appreciate the simplicity of this recipe.  I’m usually attracted to complicated recipes with crazy ingredients, but then making them always sounds daunting these days.  Yes, even though I went to culinary school and spent all those year cooking intricate recipes, those recipes are not always fun to
