I keep a list of current favorites on a note on my phone. After pulling it up this week I realized they all had two things in common: all things to ingest and all things found on blogs or the wonderful microblog world of Instagram. Here goes!
Fresh Market has boneless, skinless good chicken breasts on sale every Tuesday. It’s a good deal but I’m often stumped what to do with it. A few weeks ago Melissa d’Arabian posted this recipe.
I cooked up three half breasts and it is so yummy! I made the chicken Wednesday and realized yesterday that I hadn’t used it all so I stuffed some enchiladas with the concoction. I wondered if the herbes de Provence would not jive with enchilada sauce. Wrong-o. It’s delicious! This is a keeper recipe for sure.
Also, if you were a fan of Melissa from Food Network Star or her shows on the same network, she now does a weekly Facebook live broadcast from her new kitchen on Tuesdays. Her personality and love for Jesus really do shine. She also sends out a weekly email that I love.
Yes, I said, “egg cooker”. I love to cook but I have never mastered hard boiling eggs. It’s crazy, I know! I’ve tried every trick and tried and true recipe I can find. Always, always, there is a green ring or they are undercooked. I love a soft boiled egg when I want a soft boiled egg but now when I want a hard boiled egg!
Superfluous appliance? I think not. I have LOVED this little machine. It hard cooks eggs perfectly. I’m hooked.
Over the years, Meg has pointed me to some of my favorite things including this travel diffuser. While I’m on the subject of my girl-crush Meg Duerksen, I bawled my way through her interview with Kendra Adachi on Kendra’s Lazy Genius podcast this week. They talked a lot about walking with Jesus through raising teens. Gah, I was convicted I haven’t prayed for friends with teens enough and will now do so. Her honesty is refreshing. If you start the podcast, please finish. It’s a long and important conversation.
And while I’m on the subject of Kendra, LISTEN TO BOTH OF HER PODCASTS!!! Yes, I’m yelling.
I have itis’s. Lots of them. Inflammation stinks. Jessica Seinfeld has one of my favorite Instagram accounts. Yes, that Seinfeld. I took note of this post a while back:
And, I made it:
It’s good, y’all. It’s also very spicy. I love vinegar so I didn’t find it that horrible. This isn’t a cleanse that makes you go-go like a crazy person. It did make me less puffy that day for sure.
My friend Tabatha gave me a HUGE zucchini from her garden last week. I’ve grilled a lot already this season and wanted something different. I was about to make squash (zucchini) casserole when this recipe popped up on Instagram this morning!
I made these little wonders and they are delicious and super easy! Think latkes without the potatoes.
(I just noticed there is CFA Honey Roasted BBQ sauce on my tea bag holder in this picture. Welcome to my kitchen.)
I just wanted to show how easy peasy this recipe is. I had every single ingredient on hand already. The only change I would make is to use less salt.
So, those are a few of my current favorites. I’d love to hear yours!
