Merry Christmakkah! Let’s make Teriyaki Chicken Fried Rice

December 16, 2016

Did you guys know that Christmas and the start of Hanukkah land on December 24th this year?  It’s a super hybrid holiday!!  The best things happen when the unexpected come together and this holiday season is no different!  Soy Vay put this cute little Christmakkah song together. It’s so cute!  So while you’re cooking, give it a listen! Now, onto the meal! Teriyaki Chicken Fried Rice.  Literally one of my favorite meals ever!!!  I know this is a little random to share during December, but I’ll tell you why we love it – especially this time of year!  During the holiday season, everyone is so busy.  Church parties, work parties, neighborhood gift exchanges, school programs, and, in my case, a huge cross-country move. With the holidays in full swing and everyone so busy, having Chicken Fried Rice on-hand literally saves me!  I love to whip up a large batch because, well, it’s delicious and I love it with all my heart.  But also because my kids

Chicken Divan

April 9, 2016

This afternoon Savy girl and I made some good ole’ Chicken Divan.  I had Brian snap a couple pictures of us in the process and decided to share the recipe on le blog.  This is one of those meals that just reminds me of home, my mom used to make it all the time and my kids love it.  I’ve been doing the 21 Day fix for awhile now so I left out some chicken and broccoli so that I could stay on the meal plan, but it’s definitely a family favorite and something you guys should keep in your recipe box if you haven’t tried it out yet! Also, don’t judge the photos because I’m definitely not a food photographer haha!

Banana Muffins + Banana Frosting

February 5, 2016

Well little miss Savy Jane had her fourth birthday. I’m still in denial and don’t like to talk about it!  For her classroom party at school we were asked to bring in something “healthy”… something with no dyes and no frosting. No cupcakes. If you follow me on snapchat (twistmepretty2) you know that I wasn’t happy about this! Savy has been so exited to celebrate her birthday at school all year long and she’s been perfecting her baking skills just for the occasion. Of course I had to be a rebel and we made some “healthy” banana bread that I let her frost anyway. I know the teachers were so grateful someone finally broke the rules! I’m mean c’mon! This isn’t the healthiest banana bread — I have a recipe that uses oats and apple sauce that I’ll share next time I make it –but I had to find some passive aggressive way to be annoyed haaahaha! This recipe was just for fun and it
