100 Followers!

Hey everyone!

I’ve reached my first milestone/achievement today! 100 followers!

followed-blog-100-2x

I’ve been blogging sporadically for about 2 years but I didn’t get consistent with it until late last year. Apparently that consistency is paying off.

I want to thank each and every one of my readers. Your comments, “likes”, and views mean a lot to me.

I really appreciate your support!

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Okay I finally tried another Pinterest recipe, so I can actually post the ingredients and instructions today. I made this on one of the weeks when I really didn’t feel like cooking anything. I hadn’t cooked a real meal for a few days and I was feeling bad for my fiancé so I turned to Pinterest for a basic chicken recipe. I was lucky to find this recipe already on one of my Pinterest boards because I already had all of the ingredients at home so I wouldn’t need to make a stop at the grocery store (thank GOD!).

Baked chicken doesn’t really excite my taste buds like a juicy steak would so that makes me less excited about cooking it, but this recipe actually surprised me. It didn’t taste like regular baked chicken. It was more fun to make and more fun to eat. I just served it with white rice and some canned green beans that I’ve been trying to get rid of for a while (I want to use fresh or frozen veggies only).

Ingredients
  • ½ cup Mayonnaise
  • ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast cutlets.
  • 4-5 teaspoons Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • pinch of salt

Here are those 11 questions given to me:

What is the first thing you do in the morning when you wake up?

After I hit the snooze button a few times, I usually check Twitter and IG. Then I reluctantly get out of bed. 😦

Pepperoni, banana peppers, and extra cheese.

Beyoncé! She is just living proof of how great you can be when you have raw talent, good work ethic, and the courage to ignore your haters.

Blonde Ambition

I have been thinking about dying my hair blonde for YEARS. But I was always too scared to go through with it. That changed last week when I finally did it. I just needed something different and I knew that the longer I waited, the less likely I would be to actually take that step.

I’m still getting used to it. But I like it most of the time. I think it’s going to have to grow on me.

Super Tuna Melt

I LOVE tuna. Tuna out of the can, tuna sandwiches, tuna helper, etc. I just love it. This recipe is a godsend because it puts together some of my favorite things to eat. Tuna, tomatoes, bread, and melted cheese! I’ve never been a huge fan of grilled cheese sandwiches because I don’t like toasted bread (I like my bread soft). But I can deal with the hard bread for this recipe. And quite honestly, I think it would be hard to eat this if you didn’t toast it because it could just fall apart. I’m telling you… you NEED this cookbook.

Cheesy Cheeseless Scrambled Eggs w/Burst Cherry Tomatoes + Garlic Roasted Bacon

Let me start by saying that I NEVER cook breakfast. My fiancé is way better at making breakfast foods than I am so I usually just let him handle that. But when I found these two recipes in Chrissy Teigen’s Cravings cookbook, I figured that I would give it a shot. Our typical breakfast meal is eggs and bacon anyway so I can’t mess it up too bad, right?

Let me just say, I would’ve never thought to add cherry tomatoes to my breakfast but they added such a burst of flavor. I love tomatoes anyway, but they are really amazing when they are warm/hot. This particular recipe uses a lot of eggs (twelve, to be exact). For my fiancé and me, it was way more than we actually needed. Now I have an extra plate of eggs in my fridge (which means I’ll probably have breakfast for dinner tonight). This cookbook is seriously amazing. I have not made one dish from this book that I didn’t absolutely love. Also, Chrissy’s commentary is hilarious and spot on.

5 Things I Want to Buy This Summer

The summer is here and I have my eye on a few things that I want to purchase (or receive as a gift). I probably won’t be able to get everything on this list because I have expensive taste and money doesn’t grow on trees. But if I could just get one or two of the things on this list… I’d be extremely happy with that. If you want more information about the products below, click on the pictures. Enjoy!

Tory Burch Miller Sandals

The main reason why I want these is because I don’t have any sandals that I can just slide my feet in. All of my sandals have straps that I need to buckle; which can be quite a pain when I’m rushing to get to work in the morning. The Miller sandals are really cute and I don’t have a “nude” sandal right now, so that’s the color that I would choose. Also, I don’t know anyone who has a pair of these. I know they are extremely popular but no one in my circle of family and friends has anything by Tory Burch. So I’m eager to get something from a designer that I have never purchased from before.
