Indian Spiced Yogurt Marinated Chicken Recipe!

Indian Spiced Yogurt Marinated Chicken Recipe!

You guys, I'm finally doing it. I'm sharing one of my family's favorite recipes. After months of 'fine tuning' (read: eating it at least once a week) I actually managed to stave off the hungry hordes long enough to take some pictures. Huzzah!

Indian Spiced Yogurt Marinated Chicken Recipe!

This recipe for Indian spiced yogurt marinated chicken is something I came up with after combining several Indian style dishes into a cobbled-together recipe of curry spiced deliciousness. It's tasty, creamy, spicy and flavored without being too peppery hot, and a huge hit with kids and adults alike! No, seriously, my kids even love this.

FleetFeet Meridian and Ladies Night Out at the Village!


You guys might remember, this year I started coordinating with The Village in Meridian for their monthly Ladies' Night Out events! I've been having a blast working with local business owners and getting to meet awesome women in the Boise area. Last month I collaborated with Sur la Table, and this month I was super excited to work with FleetFeet Meridian!


Can I just say, that Brandon and his wife (the owners of our local FleetFeet) are probably some of the nicest, most genuine people I've ever met. They really truly care about the people that walk their their doors, and it just radiates from everything they do. They want people to love fitness as much as they do, and they work hard to make sure that everyone feels comfortable and included in their store. These are the kind of people I absolutely love supporting!

3 ingredient back to school granola bars recipe

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #cerealanytime #CollectiveBias

Back to school season is upon us! And that means rushed mornings where a leisurely breakfast is a distant dream. One of my favorite ways to make sure my kids (and I!) get something in our systems in the mornings are granola bars. Who doesn't love a good granola bar?

The problem is that a lot of granola bars contain tons of extra sugar, or frosting, or are basically tiny cakes pressed into little rectangles. Read the nutrition information on a box of store-bought granola bars sometime, you'll never look at them the same way again! 

I came up with this recipe for three ingredient recipe for homemade granola bars, using healthy breakfast cereal (so it already has all the good stuff packed in it!) as the base. They're quick and easy to make, and odds are you already have the ingredients laying around!

Camp fire baked orange cinnamon rolls recipe

Camp fire baked orange cinnamon rolls recipe

So it’s basically proven that any food cooked over the fire tastes better then regular food cooked in a kitchen, right? And summer meals camp fire foods! Camp fire food just seems heartier and more nostalgic then regular old kitchen food to me, and I love eating around a fire. 

And what better to attempt then gooey, soft cinnamon rolls? I also love experimenting with new foods to make while enjoying some camp fire time. Well, I love experimenting with food any time, but a fire just makes it so much more fun! 

Camp fire baked orange cinnamon rolls recipe


These camp fire cooked orange cinnamon rolls can be made using just three easily packed and stored items; canned cinnamon rolls (are they really canned? If it’s cardboard I don’t know if that counts as canned), oranges and tinfoil. That’s it!

Ladies Night Out with Sur la Table & The Village at Meridian...and me!

Ladies Night Out with Sur la Table & The Village at Meridian!

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ll already know that or the last few months I’ve had the really exciting opportunity to partner with The Village at Meridian for their monthly Ladies' Night Out events on the first Thursday of each month. I love partnering with this local event, it’s so much fun and I always meet a ton of really interesting, friendly women!

When Debby, the head of marketing and development, told me that gourmet cooking superpower, Sur la Table, had joined our monthly event, I jumped at the chance to partner with them for the night. You guys know how much I love cooking! Combine cooking, Ladies' Night Out and sampling amazing wine with fun people? Yes please! 

I was especially excited when I found out that Chef Daisy at our local Sur la Table had planned to make zoodles! In case you haven’t jumped on this food trend yet, ‘zoodles’ are spiral-cut zucchini noodles, and are a great low-carb and paleo alternative to traditional pasta. I’d never tried them before, so the first thing I did was was wolf down a sample. And then a second sample. And then a third...

Not a big fan of all the summer florals and bright colors? Five tips to make your blacks work for summer!

You may have noticed, but I really love wearing black. Kind of a lot. Honestly before moving to Boise a good 75% of my closet was some shade between black and white. I've learned a thing or two since then, but I still fine myself gravitating towards black all the time (I mean, even my hair is black!) but especially in the summer months, wearing all black can be a tricky thing. But not impossible!

Today I'm sharing my foolproof five tips for making black work for summer, so that you can break out your beloved black clothes right along with me, even when temps are high!
