In My Kitchen // Tasty Orange Shrimp

Back in the kitchen yet again! Let’s face it, I enjoy cooking, but detest washing the dishes after. I love finding new things to experiment with and I got to thank PINTERST for that. As a quick meal for after work or school I decided on shrimp for the meat; with a simple search and there were so many options. HONEY ORANGE FIRECRACKER SHRIMP spiked my interest and taste buds.

In my Kitchen // Twice-Baked Potato

Hey Guys!!

Hope all is well. Since I’ve been home quite a bit due to my sick leave, I’ve had more time to be in the kitchen *also since my mom is away*. This week we wanted to try something different from our usual spread, so we remembered something my mom used to do in the past. TWICE BAKED POTATO ~ it’s easy and fun to make, because you can add all the things you’d want on a regular Baked/Loaded Potato.

Here we go:

In My Kitchen // Summer Smoothie

Ya’ll know what time it is by now!

SUMMER!!!

It also happens to be mango season, so you know what’s one of the main ingredients in this smoothie.

This was really a quick fix since I was in the mood for something to “cool me down”. We also have an abundance of mangoes because we have a tree in our yard.

My sister and I usually create milkshakes with ice-cream, ice, milk and voila. However, tonight I decided to spice things up.

Ingredients:

Mangoes
Coconut Ice-cream
Milk
Ice

It’s really that simple. Toss everything into the blender and the result is a nice cool-me-down drink. Who knew coconut and mango made such a great combination?

BTW – next weekend happens to be a Mango Festival, maybe I’ll drop by and share some of it with you guys!

  • *seasonings for meat*
  • Chicken Breast
  • Steak
  • Sweet Pepper
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Lettuce

In My Kitchen // Creamy Chicken Meatballs

Hey Guys!!

Hope you had a great week, but guess what….
I’m finally back in the kitchen!

This meal was inspired by my craving for creamy pasta and my wants for something different to eat. If you checked out my other food related posts (Meatballs Take 2 , A Twist on “Meatballs”) you’ll see that meatballs aren’t new to me. Therefore I decided instead of a marinara sauce I was going to try a creamy cheesy sauce. This time I also popped my meatballs into the oven instead of frying them *but I think I left them a little bit too long, or the texture is just different since it’s chicken.*

In my Kitchen // Shrimp + Spinach Pizza

Happy Friday!! 

Hope it has been a good one so far.Today I had no clue what I was going to have for lunch, and I didn’t feel like spending any money. Therefore, I looked in my refrigerator and tried to figure out what I could whip up quickly.  Based on my title you can see what my decision was!

Snackin’ // Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Hey Guys!!

What are you snackin’ on today?

Cinnamon rolls are always a go-to especially Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls; all you have to do is pop open the can, separate the rolls and pop ’em in the oven.

Well, I decided to do something a little different that I may have seen on Pinterest. Instead of popping the rolls into the oven I placed them on my waffle maker and voila!

Yum! This is an awesome quick snack if you feel for something sweet or maybe a dessert later on in the night.

Have you tried to cook anything else in a waffle maker?

In my Kitchen // Roast Whole Chicken

Heyyyy Guys!!

Guess who’s back in the kitchen?? This chica!

My “Sunday Funday” started out with me slaving over a stove, then relaxing on a beach with a cold beer.

I almost forgot what it’s like cooking a whole Sunday dinner then having to clean up after; it’s awful, but worth it. I decided on a roast whole chicken, macaroni pie, rice, and coleslaw. Continue reading “In my Kitchen // Roast Whole Chicken”
