Simple Thai Chicken

Guys. This chicken recipe is AWESOME! The thighs come out super moist (yes I said moist and I know many of you cringed at that), it's super flavorful, and the best part is its super easy!
I had all the ingredients right in my fridge so that was an added bonus as I loathe going to the grocery store. I'm sure I'm not the only one out there who will do everything I can to find recipes that I already have the ingredients for so I can avoid getting dressed and dragging my children out for an epic battle at the store.
This recipe came together so quickly and had so much flavor jammed into the sauce. That is one thing I love about Asian cooking. It's usually simple and full of flavor, which for me is the way to go. Even my 5 year old daughter loved it and she has become the pickiest eater in the world.

Carne Asada Fries

GUYS!!!! Oh man. I had this baby last night and had to jump on today to share it with you. The marinade on this steak is amazing and paired with the guac and fries just takes it over the edge.
One thing I have decided lately is that everything is better served on top of fries. We went to a little mom and pop sandwich place a couple weeks ago and they suggested that we try the fillings on top of fries instead of in the sandwich buns and holy smokes. It was so much better, and we all know how much I loves me some bread! So for me to say it was better on fries is saying a lot.
This recipe is simple, fast, and screams Southern California lovin. One thing I miss about living there is the amazing carne asada you could pick up pretty much everywhere. I'm here to tell ya that this is a great recipe if you want to get that So Cal vibe in your home for a meal. It won't let you down.

Baked Beans

This recipe brings back such good memories. My husband and I love to camp. When we were first married we camped all the time and this was one of our favorite meals to prepare over the fire.
I don't do much cooking over the fire anymore for this recipe and instead use my handy dandy oven ;) but whenever I eat this it does remind me of those days.
This is seriously one of my favorite recipes because it is so versatile. I've made it with pork chops, with ground hamburger, and hot dogs. This is also my all time favorite meal to make as a freezer meal. It warms up so well and tastes like it was never in the freezer.

Chicken Bake

If you have ever been to Costco and eaten at their food court chances are you have seen this beauty on the menu. The chicken bake.
I know I know, most people stick to the amazingly amazing cheap hot dog and soda or the ridiculously massive slice of pizza but I almost always get these. I seriously crave these when I am sitting at home. And to be honest the ones in their freezer section are okay but not like the ones they make in the front.
Now I will be honest. This recipe isn't exactly like the ones they have up front, I feel like it has more of the ingredients that they serve in the ones you buy in the freezer section BUT that being said, it does taste pretty darn close.

Deep Fried French Toast

Yes. You read that correctly. Deep, fried, french toast. This has yum written all over it.
For our anniversary this year I told my husband all I wanted was to not have to cook for one whole day. So he took me out for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It was so fun.
For breakfast we decided to try out a new place called The Original Breakfast House. This particular item was on the menu and was amazing. I paired it with a glass a fresh squeezed orange juice and found myself in pure heaven after just having breakfast.
Of course, when I got home I instantly started looking up recipes online to see if I could figure out how to make it, and came up with this recipe that turned out pretty darn close. It isn't exactly like theirs but hey, I think think that's okay cuz it is delicious none the less.

Chow Mein

Whenever I would go to Panda Express growing up I always got the fried rice. Chow mein always looked so gross to me whenever my mom would get it. Since they changed their rice recipe a while ago (I actually have no idea how long ago it was haha) I decided one day a couple years ago to venture out and try the chow mein. Okay, normally I have a hard time saying that my mom knew what she was talking about ;) but she did. Chow mein rocks! I've never gone back to the fried rice and always get the chow mein now and trust me I have a hard time resisting the urge to tell them to just fill up the whole container and forget the main dishes.
This recipe is a great mock version of the Panda Express kind. It has the same ingredients, as far as I can tell, and it tastes just as good if not better.
It also comes together very quick so its an easy side to pair with your favorite dishes. I paired mine with some potstickers that I had posted about a little bit ago. SO YUMMY!
Anyway, enjoy!

Cheesy Broccoli Mac n Cheese

Growing up I always loved ripping open a box of mac n cheese and having that with some hot dogs for lunch.
As an adult I must admit I still really enjoy having mac n cheese and hot dogs but I don't like the taste of boxed mac n cheese any more. It tastes soooo processed and just flat out gross ro me.
I have been making homemade for many years now because not only is it just as easy, it tastes a million times better and is very versitle.
For example I use the cheese sauce recipe, add broccoli and serve it over baked potatoes as well, DELISH.
