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.

I'm starting a new little format here - not font/style wise, but rather now I'm only doing Monday through Thursday cooking at my in law's. My mom-in-law works her longest days those days and I figured it'd be nice for her not to have to come home and cook for all of us.

ground turkey (2), lime (1), soy sauce, broccoli crown (1), carrots, red bell pepper (1), snap peas, ramen noodles (2)

Taco Bell Chicken Quesadillas
jalapeno (1), paprika, flour tortillas, chicken (1), cheddar cheese (1 cup), monterey jack (1 cup)

Chili Cheese Tatortot Casserole

Secret Recipe Club: Chicken Caesar Grilled Flatbread Pizza

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!!
