Homemade Tortilla Chips and Salsa

Homemade Chips Salsa 5

 Store-bought chips have nothing on the homemade ones. They just don’t.  When I was a little girl and my mom would make chilaquiles for breakfast I would sneak into the kitchen and take a couple of the perfectly fried and crisp tortillas before they got added to the spicy sauce. It’s funny how little memories like that come back to you. Continue reading “Homemade Tortilla Chips and Salsa”

Birthday breakfast with my coworkers, sounds awesome.  A weekend away with my handsome hubby, yes please. Birthday cheesecake at my parents’ house? Yes! See, it’s easy to celebrate your birthday multiple days with the people you love. Life is short, blow out those candles as many times as you can.Continue reading “Almond Butter Toast 3 Ways”

One of my firsts posts on Wife Life Kitchen was my Spicy Sriracha Soy Edamame (which is still my favorite way to eat edamame 🙂 by the way.)

So when I was contacted by Seapoint Farms I was very excited. They sent me a few more products to try, and I have included them here to show you. I also have one cool product I found on my own and fell in love with!

BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad

BBQ Ranch Chicken SaladWho wants to eat healthier in January? I know I do. With this salad you are getting in good veggies, but you also have a little indulgence with creamy ranch dressing and a little bit of crispy onion strings for some crunch. The red onion and corn confetti make the salad fun and give lots more texture. Tangy barbeque sauce deepens the flavor. Throw some smoky chicken breast in the mix and you have a filling and flavorful dinner salad that you can make at home for cheap in 20  minutes!Continue reading “BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad”

Lake Arrowhead, California

 A few weeks ago I headed up to Lake Arrowhead with my husband, our good friends and their adorable baby boy for the day.

 I just wanted to take time to share some of our photos from that day. I also want to thank you for coming here and reading my blog. It means a lot to me!

I have been on vacation from work for the past week, and thought that I would be posting soooooo many recipes, but I haven’t. I have been spending lots of time with my family, sleeping in with my husband (he is on vacation too, yay!), watching way too much Mindy Project on Hulu and enjoying the last of the holiday festivities…

But I miss my blog. And I miss posting recipes.

And I am getting right back to it. 🙂
