Sticky Sweet & Spicy Boneless Buffalo Strips

Let me start off by saying that I am a total chicken tender, or chicken strip, girl. My friends joke with me all the time that my palette is somewhat equivalent to that of a 6 year old, since I'll almost always order the chicken finger platter if it's available.

DIY Gold Shabby Chic Frame Makeover

We got crafty the other day, and that, my friends, doesn't happen very often. Give us a bag of mozzarella, or a cart full of different whiskeys, and we'll know what to do with them immediately. But, hand us a paint brush or some acrylic and you've officially started speaking Japanese.

Want to know how we did it?

Candied Pecans

Two things I learned over the weekend. 1) Candied pecans make everything taste better, and 2), candied pecans do not take pretty pictures. No amount of saturation editing can make them look like anything else besides dried up beetles and I totally apologize for that.

Also, I totally apologize for making your mind compare beetles to candied pecans, because I know you're thinking about it now. And if you weren't - then now you are.

Herb & Panko Crusted Chicken Breast with Capers

Chicken! Tonight we're having chicken and you're going to love it! I promise. Because why wouldn't you? Why wouldn't you like a crispy hunk-a-meat drizzled with a white wine/caper sauce? Who wouldn't?!

Oh right, vegetarians.

This was pretty freakin' delicious when we made it the other day to accompany our indecisive asparagus decisions (1 & 2). That sauce. OH THAT SAUCE. It's three ingredients, friend. Three! You'll want to drink it, and not just because it has white wine in it.
