Jalapeño-Cilantro Chicken Salad

Jalapeño-Cilantro Chicken Salad by Caroline

Lunch is a meal that I often get bored with. We eat leftovers or a sandwich, or Trader Joe's vegetable fried rice, yum! I still get tired with those simple choices. I know I could take the time out and make something amazing, but I like to save that for dinner :) This chicken salad is perfect for lunch, I made it in the beginning of…

This has definitely been one of my favorite meals. I was craving a big salad and this one hit the nail on the head, seriously. I could not stop eating this salad and I was sad when all of the leftovers were gone.You can easily adapt this salad to leave out ingredients you don't like and add more ingredients you do like. However, I…

Crispy Fish Sandwiches

Crispy Fish Sandwiches by Caroline

Fried fish is so common in the South; fishing is popular and the fish fry's are rampant. I am from the South, but have some how managed to not like fish fry's and to stay under the radar. I eat hushpuppies and some coleslaw and say I've had enough fish and no one seems to notice. Well, that is except my husband he loves fried catfish,…

I heard many rave reviews on this cake and could not wait to make it, literally, I ran to the kitchen, took inventory, and started baking. This cake is so easy to make. I mean really, it's crazy.

Crispy Buffalo Shrimp

Crispy Buffalo Shrimp by Caroline

I came to the realization a few nights ago that I had not had any fried food in 3+ weeks! I did not even realize it. It has not been hard at all and I attribute a lot of that to this "crispy-style-baking" I do. I use a baking sheet, covered in aluminum, with my cooling rack (for cookies) on top, it fits perfectly and it ensures that…

Chicken Fajitas {Crockpot} by Caroline

This Texas girl is still getting used to the Mexican food here in North Carolina. There has been progress, they opened a Chuy's in a shopping area we frequent! Score! We love it. However, we still cook our favorites at home all of the time. We have our favorite chicken fajita recipe, but that requires the grill. It is currently 49…

Chocolate Gravy

Chocolate Gravy by Caroline

I love making breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day and I don't know if there is a better way to say "I love you." It is always special waking up and smelling the yumminess that awaits you. It makes waking up better, anyone who knows me, knows I do not like to wake up. It is such an awful process after a wonderful…

I was thinking it is crazy for me to go on and on and on about these, but dang, these were delicious.I picked this meal out for my husband he loves mustard and with a little sweet along with it, I knew he would be so thrilled. What I did not know, is how obsessed I…

Blackened Salmon Salad with Avocado Ranch Dressing

Blackened Salmon Salad with Avocado Ranch Dressing by Caroline

I am a big fan of dinner salads, but they have to be big enough to keep me full for the rest of the night. On that note, they have to be interesting/complex enough for me to want to eat a salad that big. This salad hit every requirement I placed upon it, and then some.The salmon was definitely spicy from the blackened aspect, but the…

Bacon, Spinach, & Mushroom Alfredo Ziti

Bacon, Spinach, & Mushroom Alfredo Ziti by Caroline

In the winter everyone gravitates towards comfort food. A big bowl of warm happiness. This can come in many forms, soups, chilis, chicken and dumplings, and last but not least pastas. This pasta is a one pot, or skillet, meal, which equals a very easy clean-up.I had no doubts about this pasta, I knew I would love it. All of the…
