Princess Tea Party

Back in September me and several of my Church friends hosted a princess tea party at my Church. It was a blast planning baking and decorating. We had about 80 little princesses attend.

Thanks for the pictures Beth

My Dream Business

If I could own my own business, this would be it! Crown and Crumpet is everything I would want for my own "tea shop" inspiration. I would love to take Charlotte there someday.

A Giveaway

Check out my friend Beth from Dot In The City and her amazing blog for her birthday giveaway featuring several cool handemade shops!

Chicken Enchilada Pasta

I've been trying to eat healthier these days. It's actually been fun searching for healthy recipes via the web and planning my meals throughout the week. I have allowed myself a cheat meal every saturday night so I can still enjoy those not so healthy comfort meals.
I got this recipe from my friend Beth via pinterest. It was so stinking delicious. It was definitely worth the yummy calories that went with it. Jason loved it too!

Friday Night Dinner

Barbeque chicken caramelized red onions with scallion skillet flatbread.
I made this flatbread recipe from Whole Living. It was a great healthy bread alternative.

Almond Coconut Curry Chicken

Last night for dinner I made a chicken dish inspired by this recipe from Whole Living. I didn't have some of the ingredients so I used what I had and it came out awesome. I'm thinking that my recipe might have even been better than the inspiration recipe.
Instead of the Almond milk I used a can of lite coconut milk. I added a 1/4 cup of almonds to a food processor and 2 tablespoons of shredded coconut along with the coconut milk and blitzed away. I used boneless skinless chicken breast instead of thighs cut into chunks and sauted the chicken along with the onions added the milk mixture and the rest of the ingredients that is in the inspiration recipe. I didn't have slivered almonds but I had whole ones that I broke up and sprinkled on top. I served it over rice. It looks like a big pile of poop but it was yummy!

I'm Back!!!

Yup, It's been way too long. I could sit here and write down lots of excuses why I have not blogged in a very long time, but why bother! I'm back baby! I really hope to get my creative juices flowing again.

I'm trying to be healthy and lose weight once again, yup, been too long since I've done that as well.... So, I am going to cook healthy recipes taken from some of my favorite websites, blogs and health magazines and share them with you.

Last night I made Pork Chops with Apples and Thyme. It was absolutely delicious! I forgot to take a picture so I took this one from the recipe.

My last project that was this blanket for my friends baby girl Clara.

Hope to be back soon with other recipes and things I've created!
