Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Tenders

Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Tenders | 4 ingredients - that's all you need for this awesomesauce recipe!

I've really only ever had sage in Crispy Golden Pork, so it's not something I really recall the taste off the top of my head. So I didn't really realize how great this recipe would be even though it's incredibly simple. It really blew me away. The sage is one of my new favorite herbs for sure! :)

Are You Kidding Me? Cake: Blueberry Edition

Are You Kidding Me? Cake: Blueberry Edition | Three ingredients and you get this incredible fluffy delicious cake #dessert

I pinned this cake recipe a looooong time ago - really it's more of a base recipe. You take any cake mix, any pie filling, and 3 eggs - and you're good to go! I chose to do (if I remember correctly) French vanilla and blueberry pie filling. As you can see below - this is an incredibly fluffy cake! Look at how gorgeous that is! It was also incredibly good. Yum yum yum! I can't wait to try other variations of it.

Secret Recipe Club: Chicken Caesar Grilled Flatbread Pizza

http://secretrecipeclub.com/

It's Secret Recipe Club time again! For any avid food bloggers who may be interested, Secret Recipe Club is a group of food bloggers who are assigned another member's blog each month secretly and pick something to cook/bake and then blog on the designated reveal day. It's so much fun to see what recipes the other members pick off of your own blog.

Originally I had decided not to participate this month because of the move in the smack dab middle of the month, but then I decided to go ahead and do it since I do the assignments and I could know ahead of time who I would get. Let me just say how excited I am that I changed my mind!! When I do up the assignments for SRC, I use a randomizer, so I have no clue who I'm going to get either until I copy/paste into my spreadsheet. There is still a little excitement in there :)

This month I happened to have apparently found my new food soulmate: Lynsey of Lynsey Lou's. I love that she talks about winning her husband over with her food and how passionate she is about cooking. It's exactly how I am. The kitchen is a happy place in my house!

My secret board on Pinterest was immediately filled up with recipes from Lynsey's blog, like Fleur de sel Caramels, Chicken & Basil Stuffed Twiced Baked Potatoes, Browned Butter Salted Caramel Cookie Bars, Browned Butter Banana Muffins with Struesel Topping, Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Dip, Quinoa Fruit Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing, and Bacon Pecan Brittle. That's not even all the recipes I pulled up - that's just the ones I think y'all should really hear about! I tried to have Nick choose what recipe because I had too many and I couldn't choose, but he didn't go with one of the ones I really wanted to make, so I chose: Chicken Caesar Grilled Flatbread Pizza. Kind of like when you flip a coin for a decision and find yourself wishing for one of the outcomes more than the other.
Chicken Caesar Grilled Flatbread Pizza | A clever twist on a classic Caesar salad that is absolutely perfect for lunch! #recipe

This chicken caesar flatbread pizza is the best! It was such a nice thing to vary up my normal caesar salad lunch with some flatbread. I added tomatoes to the mix because that's what I add to my own salads for lunch. It's just everything I really wanted!!
