Chicken Piccata

16 Jul

Good afternoon everybody!

I hope you’re all having a wonderful day so far. I feel like I’ve been away forever!

We had a great time camping and we’re back all tanned and refreshed. I haven’t cooked anything since we’ve been back but then I remember I made this just before we left and forgot to post it!

Gooooo me!

That right there is organization at it’s finest, but not really.

Garlicky Green Beans

13 Jun

Hey boo’s!

I hope you are all having an awesome Thursday so far! This week is just flying by for me.

I haven’t posted in 13 days! Woops.

I was irritated busy with filming, editing and posting that YouTube Video.

My, oh my. Videos are A LOT more work than I thought they were. I also had a few technical difficulties as well as  just general inept-ness when it comes to editing videos. My biggest problem was MUSIC. You obviously can’t just go and post someones song in your video without permission, the copyright laws will get all up in your business and shut you down. So in an attempt to avoid that I was looking at some royalty free music that I could use without getting punished to the full extent of the law. Unfortunately, most of the music that I could find sounded somewhat like those little pre-recorded tracks that came loaded on the keyboard I had when I was ten.

Mamba anyone?

I would have been better off with the dog barking or maybe some helicopter sounds, cause that stuff was just plain CHEESY.

Anyways, my frustration with the music thing ended with me posting the video with no background music. Which was lame, BUT I have a solution to my problem (well one of my many problems) and I will share that with you once I get it finished.

So that is my long winded excuse explanation for why that darn video took so long for me to finish. I promise next time I will do better. Also I will not post when I am filming, rendering, uploading ect. THEN that way you guys will have no idea how long I’m taking.

Muahahaha, my master plan is coming together nicely!

I think I MAY have had a little too much coffee this morning.

Since I am starting to ramble, I think it is time to get into this SUPER easy non-recipe.

Mini Strawberry Shortcake Cheesecakes

31 May

I like cheesecake.

Actually, I have to admit, I am a really high maintenance cheesecake eater.

Cheesecake do’s and don’ts:

DO make sure the crust is thin and crispy

DON’T make the crust hard as a rock and 3 inches thick. If you can’t cut through it with a fork with very little pressure, it’s too thick.

DO serve it with a light topping (if it is a fairly plain cheesecake)

DON’T serve it with 10 lbs of cookies, chocolate syrup,  nuts, and whipped cream. Keep it simple!

DO make sure the recipe you’re using calls for LOTS of cream cheese and not too much of anything else. It is CHEESEcake we’re talking about here.

DON’T try to make this a low calorie dessert.

DO let me know what your favorite cheesecake recipe is

DON’T get weirded out when I show up at your house for dessert

Told you I was high maintenance.

Crispy Sticky Asian Chicken {step by step}

10 May

Good Morning lovelies!

A big “Happy Friday” goes out to you all! And a very Happy Mothers Day to all the wonderful Mama’s out there

What do you have planned for the weekend!? I hope all the Mommies out there are being pampered and get to relax for once.

I am going to be making dinner for my Mama and the family and the rest of the time I think I will just relax and enjoy some time with my Mom. She has asked for a roast beef dinner with all the fixings because she doesn’t like making that herself. Ha! Well fair enough, its her one day to choose and I am happy to do it. I will try to take some photos along the way so you can see me make a complete roast beef dinner with Yorkshire puddings and all the rest of the yummy stuff you have along side the beef.

I have a long step by stepper ahead of me here so I am gonna cut the chit chat for today. I want to get some advice on Vegas so I will do more of a chit chatty post early next week.

Okay let’s go!

Weekend in Photos

19 Apr

Good Morning Lovelies!

I hope your Friday is off to a wonderful beginning. I promised yesterday that I would show you some photos from my little mini trip last weekend. I went with two friends to a cabin on the Sunshine Coast. The cabin was on a small island only accessible by water taxi and so it was an adventure getting there and back. I had SO much fun and hope to go back soon!!
