Brazilian Cheese Rolls

Recently I have been on a major beans and rice kick, {which i’m about to create a separate post for}, and these are the perfect thing to serve alongside them! My family get seriously excited when I pull a batch of these out of the oven, all soft and warm and oozing with melted cheese when you pull them apart. My husband served a church mission in Santa Maria, Brazil where his room-mates would make these fresh for breakfast! So they’re a throw-back for him, and another family fave that we all adore! I hope you guys love and make them as much as we do. I’m not much of a dinner-roll kinda girl, because they require so much work and pre-thought, but all that is required of these is blending up a few ingredients, and baking them in the oven. Leaving you all that time to work on some delicious rice and beans! Continue reading

Buffalo Wild Wings Original Hot Chicken Wings

A couple of weeks ago I made Buffalo Wild Wings Honey BBQ Chicken Wings for me and the kids when my husband was out of town, and they were so fun to make, and SO delicious, my husband asked if next time I would make his favorite Buffalo Wild Wings Original Hot kind. I always sneak one or two of his wings when we go there, {it’s about all the heat I can handle}, and these wings tasted the same! I loved them (well, a couple of them), he loved them… but what surprised me is how much my 7-year old daughter loved them! Now I have learned how fast, inexpensive, easy and delicious home made wings are, i’m feeling kinda silly for eating out there so much :-/ Now if I can just learn how to make Wing Stop’s fries….

White Chicken Chili

This is one of my favorite go-to family meals of all time, and I have lost count of how many times I have made it, although I can clearly remember the first time. We were sailing around the San Juan Islands with my husbands parents, the weather was getting cool, and we had a bowl of this Chili under blankets up on deck, in the middle of the serene Puget Sound. Everyone loved it, and it warmed us right up– it was the perfect thing to serve then, and it’s the perfect dish to serve now that the weather is getting cool again. Continue reading

Autumn Chicken Salad with Raspberry Poppyseed Dressing

I am not a salad person, but my daughter, Gemma, is– so I thought I would make her a big, beautiful autumn salad with all her favorite things in it today. Then I cut into the pomegranate and it was rotten, and the pears went bad before I had the chance to use them, and I completely forgot to buy feta cheese. So the salad I had in my mind didn’t go to plan at all, but I am so glad, because this one ended up being so much better! Continue reading

Buffalo Wild Wings Honey BBQ Chicken Wings

Whenever my family and I eat out in town, we talk through all of our options for about 20 minutes, each one being shot down by someone, until we all eventually and mutually decide on Chicken Wings! And then we spend another 10 minutes trying to decide between Buffalo Wild Wings and Wing-Stop! Wing stop usually wins because it has a quieter atmosphere, and better fries… but the Honey BBQ Chicken Wings at Buffalo Wild Wings is the best! My little guy and I used to compete to see who could eat the most, but he beat me so much I quit, and then he started out-eating my husband too. My husband and I usually just stare in awe as these little people with sticky fingers, big blue eyes, and BBQ covered faces devour a huge plate of wings in an insanely short amount of time, it’s pretty cute, and inhuman!
