Chicken wings are a must have here at home. They’re super easy to make, so I make them about once a month. And they don’t need to be thawed out which is great. If I haven’t decided what to make for dinner on any given day, I can take these out of the freezer and have them ready in under an hour.
While browsing around Pinterest I found this Cajun Chicken Wings recipe and decided to give it a try. It was delicious by the way.
It’s taco Tuesday! And while this is NOT a taco recipe, it’s the same cuisine so keep scrolling. 😛 Last week, I made these super easy and delicious burrito bowls, they didn’t require much effort at all.
If you follow me on Instagram, you got a sneak peek on my stories. And because a promise is a promise, I am sharing the recipe below.
Rice and Chicken
First, I made about a cup and a half of rice. While the rice was cooking, I seasoned three chicken breasts with a little bit of adobo, minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Once cooked, I chopped each breast, added a bit of cilantro and set aside.
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.
I am not going to lie… Pork Chops are one of those foods that I don’t like to make. Why? Because, I had not found a good way to cook them. I mean, I have cooked them but never gotten the flavor that I was looking for.
Then I got online and started searching and found a few ideas that I could try. This is what I ended up doing… Southern Style Pork Chops.
Today is National Caramel Popcorn Day, to celebrate we tried a new recipe at home. If you’re on Instagram, head over to my profile and check the stories where I took over a fellow’s Instagram account and prepared this recipe live.
The recipe I prepared is super easy. Plus, you can use any popcorn of choice. To make the caramel you only need a handful of ingredients – which you probably already have.
Lately, I have been trying to take steps to eat better and be more active. You may have noticed by last week’s posts! This Cobb Salad is proof that you can eat good while trying to be healthier.
So, this week I will continue on this getting healthy topic, and bring you a salad recipe that I made and another recipe from a friend.
