Buffalo Chicken Mac 'n Cheese by The Happiest Belly

I love buffalo chicken in just about any form.From traditional wings to dips, there are so many yummy ways you experiment with buffalo flavor. This mac and cheese is my new fave, and I'm pretty sure it'll be on heavy rotation in our house this winter (hello, elastic waistband pants!).This is a super easy recipe you can easily change…

Sriracha-Ginger Mayo aka The Best Sauce Ever

Sriracha-Ginger Mayo aka The Best Sauce Ever by The Happiest Belly

I am a sucker for a doctored mayonnaise, and this one in particular is my absolute favorite these days. This spicy and flavorful Sambal Chicken dish can be served in so many different ways and has been on repeat in our house for the last year. The first few times I made it, I didn't use a dipping sauce or drizzle of any kind, and kept…

The Lowdown on Homemade Bread: My Fave Recipes and Shortcuts!

The Lowdown on Homemade Bread: My Fave Recipes and Shortcuts! by The Happiest Belly

Pardon this latest absence- as my husband likes to tell me, I tend to shove about 15 pounds of "stuff" in my 5 pound bag (that's the PG version!) each day, leaving me little to no time to actually blog about the "stuff" I've been doing, ha!Anyway-I've…

Peanut Butter Fudge Pie

Peanut Butter Fudge Pie by The Happiest Belly

I made this peanut butter fudge pie for our sweet friends who came to visit us from Indianapolis last weekend. I took a few not-so-fantastic pictures with my cell phone when I was serving it (and, of course, not a single one while making it) then posted it to FB and Instagram and received several requests for the recipe.So please…

Your New Favorite Oven Fries

Your New Favorite Oven Fries by The Happiest Belly

We LOVE fries at our house.In fact, we probably eat them about 3-4 times a week.Thankfully, we bake our fries in olive oil, avoiding the extra fat and calories of a traditional fry. Don't get me wrong, there's not a lot that's tastier than a deep fried french fry, but there's no way we'd be able to eat those as frequently as we eat my…

Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto by The Happiest Belly

What began as a few days away quickly snowballed into a nearly two month blogging hiatus!I've honestly just been enjoying my summer, spending as much of this monsoon season outdoors with the kids...We've gone boating and tubing, taken a class on honeybees at a local farm, thrown a super-memorable joint birthday party, made great…

So this weekend marked the launch of the Lilly Pulitzer for Target line.Since this:I thought I'd go check it out.I talked to the barista at my local Target Starbucks who told me that when the Neiman Marcus line launched, you could pretty much hear crickets.Since I'm definitely not one for long lines, crazy shoppers or anything Black…

The Lazy Girl's Guide to Sushi...Spicy California Bowl

The Lazy Girl's Guide to Sushi...Spicy California Bowl by The Happiest Belly

Sushi is probably one of my favorite meals in the world.I typically don't mess around with sushi-grade fish at home (mostly because I'm the only one who eats it!), so I am usually making spicy California rolls when a sushi craving hits.And sometimes usually I am very lazy and ravenous and can't be bothered to actually roll the…
