Buffalo Chicken Salad Sandwiches

This weekend we had our annual family reunion and I was asked to bring something savory. Ugh. When I go to a get together, church dinner, girls night in, I prefer to bring something sweet. I am just better at doing sweet. I had no idea what I was going to bring with me to the reunion. I knew I wanted it to be something easy to prepare, something quick, and something delicious. As we were walking around Walmart, my hubby had a brilliant idea. He suggested making a Buffalo Chicken Salad and serving them on a ciabada roll with a piece of lettuce. Seriously, the man in brilliant. We walked around the store for a bit gathering the ingredients and trying to decide if there should be cheese in the salad. I loathe blue cheese so that was NOT an option, but a cheddar or mozzarella would be OK. We decided to just not put cheese in it. Next we had to decide on the wings. I wanted something quick and easy. Naturally, premade frozen wings popped into my head. But then I would have to cook them an…

Food Post Challenge - Finding Your Inspiration

A few weeks ago an opportunity to lead a Better Food Post Bootcamp for the members of the Social Fabric® Community arose. I applied, I knew there were FAR more qualified candidates out there that would more than likely apply as well, I never really gave it a second thought. Then I received an email from the Community Management member that is heading up the bootcamps about how excited she was that I applied. ME! You guys! It almost made me cry! Oh who am I kidding, I teared up a bit. I am SO excited for this opportunity! I am co-leading this challenge with Sarah from Clever Pink Pirate, be sure to check her site out!
This week we are talking about finding your Inspiration. Weather it be Food Photography, their style or how the blogger writes the story of the recipe. Who inspires you? To start, I am going to share a before and after pic of my own. I started blogging in 2008, when I started I was using my blog to journal my pregnancy. I don't think it was until 2010 I shared my fir…

Top 5 Summer Time Treats

Summer hasn't "officially" started yet but by the temps here, it sure seems like it has! With Summer comes yummy treats! Isn't it funny how our taste for things change with the season? Maybe it is just because I HATE using my oven during the hottest time of the year. During the summer months I prefer cold treats, both savory and sweet. Today I am sharing with you my Top 5 Summer Time Treats!
The girls and I headed out to Walgreens last night to pick up some Pepsi and Frito Lay products. They were having a great sale on Pepsi Products and, I needed to pick up some chips for my treats, and also lunch this week. First up is a cool savory summer time staple, Chips and Guac! I LOVE making my own homemade guacamole, it is super easy and tastes 1000x's better than store bought. All you need is 1-2 Ripe Avocados per person, Lime Juice, Tomatoes, Onion and Garlic Salt and Pepper to taste. Each time I make it I put different amounts of everything in so I really don't …
