Salted Chocolate-Peanut Butter Bars

To prepare for Peanut Butter Week I spent hours and hours in the kitchen getting new recipes ready to feature.

So I called my husband and told him that I had made 2 different kinds of cookies and these bars and needed him and his co-wookers to become my taste testers for the day! He did not mind one bit and I got some good reviews back! Plus I didn’t …

Honey Hot Chicken Strips

My favorite food has always been buffalo chicken wings. I could eat them almost everyday. I am a little picky on my buffalo sauce, but recently I have loved honey hot wings just as much as buffalo wings! Buffalo sauce is a little too spicy for my young family but not this honey hot sauce. It is the perfect happy medium for my family and I hope it is the same for yours! Honey Hot Chicken Strips 1 pkg frozen Tysons breaded chicken tenders 1 cup oil (for frying) sauce: 1/3 cup Franks Hot Sauce 1 1/3 cup brown sugar …

If someone asked me what are the top 5 meals that I make most for my family this recipe would be one of them! Whenever I am at the store and don’t have my shopping list with me I always seem to go back to this recipe. Its simple, I know the recipe by heart, and its always a winner! I will admit that I usually make chicken fajitas more then steak fajitas. But this particular day I had steak left over from the night before and I was taking pictures of some salsas I was also making for dinner …

He grabbed a few things that caught his eye and I did the same thing. I did get to try a little of each of his, but I told him I had …
