Happy Tuesday! So weeknight meals need to be quick right? But also delicious! I wanted to try something different in last week, so I made these crispy ranch chicken wraps. And let me tell you that not only were they easy to make, but they were also very tasty. This four recipe meal was served in under thirty minutes and fed my little family of four. If you’re ready to make this, take notes…
Making the wraps
You will need about four chicken breasts, panko bread crumbs and oil to make the crispy chicken. Coat the chicken with the bread crumbs according to the instructions on the package of your bread crumbs of choice – and fry until golden. You will also need tortilla wraps, cilantro (optional) and cheese – lots of it. 😉
Once the chicken is done, place as many pieces as you’d like on the tortilla wrap, add cilantro and cheese. Close the wrap and place on a countertop grill for a few minutes, so that the cheese can melt. Remove from the grill and serve warm.
St. Patrick’s Day is this weekend! That means it is also mid-March.. where is time going? Back to St. Patty’s Day. I thought I’d help you celebrate by sharing this super easy to make Lucky Charms Cookies recipe. All you need is a box of Lucky Charms cereal, a package of sugar cookies, one egg and butter. That’s unless you want to make your own dough, then keep scrolling for my favorite sugar cookies recipe.
Making the Cookies
First, separate the marshmallows from the cereal (I did about 1.5 cups) and set aside. Next, prepare the cookie dough per instructions. The package that I got only called for 1/2 cup of butter and 1 egg. Once the dough is prepared, mix in about 1 cup of the marshmallows. Save the 1/2 cup to top the cookies and garnish. If you’d like to make your own dough from scratch, I recommend this recipe. I have tried it and it makes good sugar cookies.
Once you’ve folded the marshmallows into the dough, use a teaspoon to drop cookie dough onto a baking sheet. Make sure to place them about two inches apart. Bake at 350 (or temperature on your package instructions) for about 8-9 minutes. Remove from oven, they will continue to bake on the baking sheet for a few minutes as they cool down. Remove from baking sheet once cool, top with extra marshmallows and that’s it! 😉
Today’s recipe is Asian inspired. Yes, sometimes we eat non Tex-Mex meals too 😛 Truth is there’s a new Ramen restaurant near us, though we’ve had the opportunity to stop by, we just haven’t. So, I figured that it would be nice to make some ramen, until we make it into the restaurant.
The recipe was super easy to make and doesn’t require much experience. I cut the chicken into small pieces and seasoned it with salt, garlic powder and red pepper flakes to taste. Then, I let it sit in the refrigerator for a few minutes before cooking.
It has been a while since I’ve shared a recipe… shame on me, for keeping all the yumminess to myself. 🙂 Truth is, I’ve been winging it, dinner, life, motherhood, everything!! Which is a testament to me needing some organization in my life at the moment. And meal planning action in the kitchen. Last week I made a sweet and spicy shrimp dinner worth sharing…
Because my love for rice is undeniable, this is the side that accompanied the shrimp. If you need basic instructions on how to make white rice, leave me a comment. 😉 I will walk you through it.
Salmon is one of my favorite meals to prepare. I’ll admit that while in Georgia visiting my parents, I haven’t cooked much. I’m spoiled, I know. 🙂 So, I thought I could give my mom a break from the kitchen at least for a day and decided to make my salmon recipe for dinner.
First, I lined a baking sheet with foil paper, sprayed it with olive oil and set aside. Then I rinsed the salmon with cold water, seasoned with parsley, rosemary garlic and red pepper flakes.
Making lobster tails? That was a definite first. Really, how many people think the lobster is a fancy meal?! I’m raising my hand on this one! It’s like steak; a special occasion meal.
Quite frankly, I never thought that lobster was affordable enough for me to buy and make at home. But while shopping I noticed the promotional price on the lobster tails; and I had to buy some.
I’ll confess that I got ahead of myself and bought the tails without having a plan on how to prepare them, but making them wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be.
Cutting the lobsters tails
Cut through the top part of the tail with kitchen scissors. Then flip and crack the ribs through the bottom to open up the shell and loosen up the meat.
