Copycat grilled Pizza Palace Salad

I grew up in a reallllllyyyyyy small town. When I say small you probably aren’t going to understand.  I went to school with the same 65 kids from preschool to senior year.  We had 1 red light in town.  1.  In this said itty bitty town, there was a restaurant called the Pizza Palace.  They…

Quinoa Salad with Chicken

Quinoa is a gluten free grain and a super healthy one too!  It was over 100 degrees and well, if I would have realized how hot it truly felt on my deck this afternoon I would have told my husband we were having italian ice for lunch. Instead, I stuck with being the amazing wife…

Gluten Free Homemade General Tso Chicken

I had an insane idea the other night to make chinese food.  I LOVE chinese food and every now and then I just crave it.  Growing up, my parents would literally order one of pretty much everything on the menu.  We had to drive 30 minutes one way to the chinese restaurant.  I remember every…

Healthy Meal Prep – Kick’n Chicken, Seasoned Potatoes & Veggies

I’m always looking for easy, healthy, and delicious lunch ideas to make each week.  One week I’m convinced we will have salads every week for a lifetime and then by day three, I’m so sick of salad I never want to look at one again.  I’m a “Variety is the spice of life” kind of person….

If you’re going to eat fried food, it’s best to do it at home, right?  I think so!  I was craving chicken tenders the other day.  I think chicken tenders are just such a comfort food.  After days of eating soft foods and having to watch everything that I put in my mouth due to…

GRILLED Hot Butter Ranch &“Garbage” Wings

The bar/restaurant that I worked at in high school had a “Garbage” wing.  I know, it doesn’t sound appealing AT ALL.  However, it’s the best friggin’ wing I’ve ever had in my life.  and, I’ve had a LOT of wings. A Garbage wing is a wing dipped in hot butter garlic sauce & then sprinkled with…

Best Damn Wings

My husband and I are wing-a-holics. Growing up, I went to two wing nights at local bar/restaurants every week. Wings twice a week? Yep. I was obsessed. I loved the one bar/restaurant’s wings & wing sauces so much I actually got a job there as a cook. I told you I was obsessed. Ever since…

Potato Chip Baked Chicken

Do you love potato chips? Do you love chicken? Yeah, me too. Why not combine them? I absolutely love a crunchy piece of chicken so I figured I’d give this recipe a shot.  I just used plain potato chips (which are gluten free).  I’m also not eating dairy so my wonderful husband picked me up…
