Sparkling Blood Orange Margaritas

Sparkling Blood Orange Margaritas

Sparkling Blood Orange Margaritas are just what this hump day needs. Grab a bag of blood oranges and some tequila and turn today into a party. So I walked into Trader Joe’s last week and these beautiful blood oranges were staring at me right at the entrance. I never seem to remember that it’s blood

Crispy Orange Chicken

Crispy Orange Chicken

Crispy chicken is coated in a sweet orange soy glaze to create one of our favorite new meals, Crispy Orange Chicken. It’s cheaper and healthier than the takeout version and tastes way better. Has your weather been completely crazy? Like one day it’s 75 degrees and the next it’s snowing and school probably should have been cancelled?

Spicy Orange Pork Chops

Grilling is one of my very favorite parts of summer. Marinating slabs of meat, throwing them on the grilling and eating a healthy meal in a matter of minutes is totally my jam on relaxing summer days. It couldn’t get much easier and doesn’t dirty up the kitchen. Because when there’s no school and the

Pineapple Peach Sunrise Smoothie

Pineapple Peach Sunrise Smoothie

Smoothies are a favorite breakfast around here. I love getting a huge portion of fruits (and veggies sometimes) all in one shot.

Orange Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I love a good lettuce wrap. They are light and healthy yet still filling. Joel on the other hand, does not share my sentiments. He put on his super sad face when he found out what we were having for dinner. And instead of being a sweet, caring wife I kind of laughed at said sad face. He’ll

Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Sauce

I love cookbooks. Seriously. LOVE. I have a ton and am running out of room to store them in my kitchen. I’m starting to consider a bookshelf or wire baskets hung on the wall so that I can continue my obsession collection. Wouldn’t three of those baskets hung vertically on the wall be really cute! I think

Cuban Pork Chops with Mojo

So, I’ve been trying to write this post for about two hours but I’m just drawing a blank. Probably because the little miss has been waking up about every 10 minutes so I have to go in her room and pop her pacifier back in her mouth. You could guess that sleep has been a precious commodity around here lately.
