I like to think that I work well under pressure... but I definitely don't bake well under pressure. Needless to say, it's Monday morning and I'm baking cake pops. This is a three step process (cake pops on Monday, freeze the pops during the week while I travel for work, then dip the pops on Friday night when I get home).
It's been a little
Since January, we've re-painted the living room, the kitchen,
You can probably assume that I've gone a little home-remodeling crazy in preparation for our bundle of joy... who will be joining us in September 2015. But, we already had all of these changes in mind, baby #1 just helped us speed up the process. It's not to say that I haven't been cooking dinner (tasty dinners shall I add), and taking photos! So, you'd think that I'd want to share my dinner cooking experiences on the blog but I really just haven't had the energy or motivation to write. But, here are a few photos of my dinners:
|Turkey Chili with Avocado|
I borrowed this recipe from BlueApron.com.
I like the idea of quick and yummy recipes, but I think I am too frugal for the actual delivery service of the ingredients. Plus, I only live 0.5 miles from Publix where I can pick them up myself on my lunch break. Regardless, the dish was delicious!
|Blackened Chicken Fajitas|
I borrowed this recipe from Yummly.com and it was absolutely A-MA-ZING. I've actually made this chicken a few times already! Although I like real rice and not the cauliflower substitute so I found a recipe for Cilantro Lime Rice at FoodNetwork.com
|Berry Pie Pops|
I retract what I said earlier about not baking anything since the holidays! In March I took a 2-day trip to Ohio for work. When I returned home, Brad had bought me a flat of strawberries on his way home from work in Plant City. Only, I needed to figure out what to do with them all. So, one of the yummy things I baked were these yummy pie pops (that tasted better fresh than left over) and I borrowed the recipe from CookingChanneltv.com. I took some over to my niece and nephew in Lake Mary and they ate-them-up!
That's all I've got for now. I'll be back with the rest of my cake pop recipe and baking-experience at the end of the week!
