Chicken & Wafflesย 

Hello Fam and Friends! 

It has been such a sweet minute since I’ve been on here! We all know I’m all about creating easy meals that are delish and delightful! I also absolutely love finding things and using things already here in the house. So today after church I stopped by good ol’ Publix! And I picked up some chicken tenders that are already pre-made, hot and ready to devour and some strawberry syrup! I already did some grocery shopping earlier last week so I had frozen waffles…I don’t own a waffle maker…but one day I will. So I put the waffles in the toaster oven and cut up some tenders. I spread a little butter on each waffle and put the chicken on top of one waffle and poured some syrup on top and put the other waffle on top. Made a sandwich out of it. 


Let’s be honest! Doesn’t it look so adorable placed on this Mickey Mouse plate?? ๐Ÿ˜

Oh and that syrup…it’s local from Georgia and only has 3 whole ingredients! That’s right! 3 ingredients from the creators at Blackberry Patch! Look em’ up! You won’t be disappointed! 


And this is what it looks like with syrup on it. Y’all! Praise God for the South! 

Feel free to adapt this to the way you want! Use all from scratch ingredients if you want and please let me know all about your experiences! 
Have a good rest of the weekend y’all!

Personal Thoughts on Life, Recipes from my Kitchen

Valentine’s Day Weekend ๐Ÿ’˜

Such a late post, but I wanted to share some Valentine’s Day awesomeness with y’all! My sweet hubs and I don’t usually celebrate big on Valentine’s, not because we don’t love each other by any stretch, but we just don’t make a big stink about it. However this year I decided to make a wonderful dinner and continue with our 14 days of Valentine’s cards tradition! (Can see that in a former post) 

We are obviously plant people because I got him this ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿป and he brought me home these ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜

Mostly I wanted to share my dessert recipe with you! I was so proud of myself for this creativity! 


I used store bought, pre-packaged dessert shells which is just a sponge cake. I used a pound of strawberries, but that can really be to your discretion. Lastly I used limes. I cut the strawberries into slices and put them into a saucepan added a couple tablespoons of water and sugar to sweeten them. And that was my mistake, I should have just left the strawberries solid instead of becoming mushy in the saucepan. Oh well, but then I added the berries into each shell, drizzled the syrup onto the top and squeezed a little lime juice onto each dessert shell. It was tart, but very delish! 

Happy Cooking Y’all! 

Oh and the day after my sweet hubs bought me a brand new vacuum cleaner and I was so overjoyed! I can certainly say I am getting old because I got excited about a new appliance! ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚

Oven Baked Shrimp ๐Ÿค Fajitasย 

Howdy Y’all! 

I’m so very excited to share a new recipe I’ve been wanting to make for quite a while! I’m not very big on fish naturally, however I do enjoy shrimp! I’ve seen so many Instagram posts and Pinterest ideas of shrimp tacos! I thought I’d create a little something different. I found a recipe on Pinterest for Shrimp Fajitas! I love chicken and steak fajitas, so why not try Shrimp! 

I started by slicing my veggies! I used a red onion and two bell peppers. I sliced each veggie thinly and kept them long! Then I added the Shrimp to my mixing bowl after I washed them off. Next I added my spices. I used paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder and cumin. And of course salt and pepper. Then so that the spices would stick to the veggies and shrimp I added olive oil. 


Next I placed them on a sheet pan that’s been sprayed with Pam butter spray. Bake them for 8 minutes then broil them for 2 minutes. Then you will need to bake the fajita tortillas so they are warm. After the shrimp are finished squeeze fresh lime juice over them. 


Recipe: 

– 1 1/2 pounds of Shrimp 

– 1 package of fajita seasoning or you can use 1/2 a teaspoon of the spices in the pic.

– 1 red medium red onion

– 2 bell peppers of any color

– 2 tablespoons of olive oil

Then follow the directions listed above! I hope y’all enjoy!
