Chicken & Waffles 

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?? 😍

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!

Strawberry Honey Butter

Hey Y’all! I found another recipe I wanted to share with y’all! Now, its quite obvious because I did not edit the pictures I have, so you can see it’s from Facebook! But that does not negate that this is still a fabulous recipe! And SO STINKIN DELICIOUS!!! When I first found this recipe it was probably within our first year of marriage before our first anniversary. I was searching for amazing recipes to make my new hubs! Because that’s what all good new wives do right?? YEP! Off I went searching for something breakfast-y. That’s when I came across this, and wouldn’t you know, I had all the ingredients right there in the fridge. What I did not have was a blender or a Ninja to give the strawberries that puree style. When it’s all said and done, this picture below is what the final result should look like! But if you don’t have those awesome fancy jelly style mason jars, you can honestly use whatever you like.

For the sake of not having to re-type the recipe, I wanted to just share the photo of the how-to. Now what is not shared is that this will only last about 3 weeks in the fridge. I’ve never tried to freeze it and see how that works, I know regular jelly can be frozen and unthawed and re-frozen as many times as you want, and I only know that because my Mama and Grama canned jelly my whole life. But, with butter already incorporated into the recipe and having pretty average size chunks of butter, it may not unthaw the way one would want it to. Regardless, whatever you do, if you decide to freeze it and it unthaws awesomely, then tell me all about it in the comments section so I can update this! Oh, and please feel free to use any fruit or fruit combination you like. They are amazing as gifts and taste just fabulous! Like a summer time party for your taste buds! Enjoy and happy cooking as always!

Personal Thoughts on Life, Recipes from my Kitchen

Valentine’s Day Weekend 💘

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 👆🏻 and he brought me home these 👇🏻😍

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! 🙈😂
