It’s officially spring….buuuut… spring hasn’t quite sprung just yet. Still a little cold, but hey, it’s better than winter. And warmer days are coming soon 🙂 When I think of Caribbean Jerk, I think warmth and sunshine. So maybe that’s why I wanted to make this Caribbean Jerk Baked Chicken. The first time my husband […] […]
Life Made Sweeter put this recipe on their blog and I really thought I might like to try it.
THANK YOU Life made sweeter! This recipe is AHHHMAZING. Hashimoto’s has caused so many health issues for me and caused me to put on a ton of weight since I had my son. I have been seeing a nutritionist to get myself back in working order so to speak. I’ve lost a little bit, but it really takes time. I like that I’m not restricted and can eat out or have a soda if I choose to. Honestly, I don’t drink any soda really. Every once in a while I do, but it keeps me up all night if I drink them now. I used to drink nothing but soda. Now things are different, but I’m still struggling with certain areas of my journey. I’ll get there, but it feels like it’s taking an eternity. I find it a huge struggle when we’re running to appointments, or driving 3 hours just to get to an appointment. I need to step my game up. In the last year I’ve taken care of everyone else, I really need to focus on me for just a short period…I just need to feel good again!
1 lb chicken breasts
salt and black pepper to taste
3 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice 1 lime
1/3 cup honey
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1/2 Tablespoon finely chopped cilantro
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon chili powder leave out if sensitive to spice
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Spray a large sturdy baking sheet with cooking spray or for easier clean-up, line with parchment paper or heavy-duty foil.
In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, lime juice, honey, sesame oil, and cilantro together. Drizzle 1/3 of the sauce over the chicken.
After 20 minutes, remove baking pan from the oven, flip the chicken. Sprinkle the chicken with seasonings and drizzle sauce over chicken (reserve 1 teaspoon for the end).
This is my Mom’s Classic Carrot Cake and for a while, it was a go-to for special occasions, especially since it was always a two-layer affair. I think I’ll always associate carrot cake with Easter…in my mind, I guess, Easter goes hand in hand with rabbits and rabbits eat, well, carrots – and just about…
I recently seen these chili infused lollipops in the store. I decided to get one for Coop. He tried it and was really skeptical at first. After a few minutes he was like mom, these are really, really good. They had apple, watermelon, and maybe pineapple. I can’t remember exactly. Have you seen these?
Ribs are yet another BBQ staple, so they need little introduction. There are a few different cuts, but we’re using baby back ribs tonight…but if you’re a St. Louis Ribs person, we’ve used this same cooking method, and it works for your preferred cut as well. There’s also a lot of debate out there about […] […]
It’s a day over here. I’ve had a lot up my sleeve for the day. I made these muffins, I cleaned up a little, I have a paper due, I had to register for next semester, plus my little niece is in town. I got everything done. I’m pretty proud of that.
I was able to spend the day with my little niece on Monday. It was a great surprise that she came up. I didn’t have any idea they were coming. I had bought her some little outfits. She wore one of them the day we went shopping. She looked so cute. I was really disappointed it rained, because we went to Cherokee. I wanted to get some pictures of her there, but well the rain ruined it. I found her some little moccasin’s. She has chubby little feet, so it’s been hard to find shoes she’d leave on or that actually will go on her feet. She’s worn them the last few days and seems to be leaving them alone. I am betting she probably just didn’t like the shoes they had been putting on her. They might be hurting her feet. We took the kids to lunch at Pizza Inn. Lord help us….it’s a dieters nightmare to go there. It was good though.
