Bang Bang Sauce Recipe

Bang Bang Sauce Recipe

Years ago I had a dish like the above photo at a restaurant and fell in love! I could taste mayo, and sweetness, and some kind of chilis, but I couldn't figure out how to duplicate it. I searched the internet and found a million ratios of the same 3 or so ingredients, so this is mine. You can batter and fry, or bake the protein of your choice (we've had this sauce on shrimp and chicken), or you can buy pre-made battered shrimp or chicken for a quick weeknight meal. This sauce takes less than 5 minutes to whip up and it is amazing!

How To Quickly And Easily Dice An Onion

How To Quickly And Easily Dice An Onion

Tags: Quick, Onion

Before I learned this trick, you don't want to know how I diced an onion. It took me forever and I did it that way for YEARS! I thought that it must be something I just never picked up; that most people probably know how to do this. Not the case. Nearly everyone I've chopped an onion in front of is surprised when I do this, and I'm happy to pass it on here.

Quick & Healthy Berry Breakfast Shake {Recipe}

Quick & Healthy Berry Breakfast Shake {Recipe}

With Back To School in full swing, I wanted to share a healthy breakfast shake recipe with you. This doesn't taste "healthy", and if the kids don't watch you make it, they won't even know that there's spinach in it!

If you're a blogger, you know how how much time and effort goes into blogging. It's not just writing, but also photographing & editing, designing, promoting, networking, pitching, organizing events, etc., etc., etc.. It's a full-time job getting your blog high in your reader's lists, and you're likely also losing money with hosting and domain costs. If you've been wondering how to monetize your blog, I can help. You won't get rich quick, but you'll start by making enough to cover your blogging costs and your time. :) There are many bloggers out there who make a full-time income, and then some, but it takes a lot of time and a lot of hard work. Using these methods, I hope to start earning a full-time income from blogging while also being able to stay at home to care for my family. I get asked constantly how I make money online, so I thought I would share everything in one place. It became a monster of a post, and was hard to get through, so I broke it up into 6 easy to digest pieces starting with my #1 income stream: Affiliate Marketing.

Deep Dish Super Supreme Pizza {Recipe}

Deep Dish Super Supreme Pizza {Recipe}

If you thought I was done with pizza recipes, we're not even close. ;) If you remember the Super Supreme Pizza recipe I shared, this is similar, but in a deep dish crust. You can really put anything you want on this pizza because the star is the crust; It's easy to whip up with no waiting time for rising. You put it in a cold oven and the crust rises and cooks while the oven pre-heats. So if you're in a hurry and you don't have a batch of this Easy Freezable Pizza Dough thawed, a quick deep dish pizza might be just what you need.

Quick Chicken and Dumplings

Quick Chicken and Dumplings

My family loves Chicken and Dumplings...from other places. I've made it a few times, but it was never just right; always too thick or the dumplings just weren't right, so I decided not to overthink it. I was not going to do this totally from scratch again to lackluster reviews, so I used quick, on-hand ingredients, and it turned out wonderfully! Feel free to sub your fresh ingredients; I'll bet it tastes even better.

How to Make SLIME!

How to Make SLIME!

Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip {Recipe}

Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip {Recipe}

One of our favorite dips is a hot and creamy Spinach Artichoke dip served with tortilla chips. I make it pretty often for special nights like movie night or when we have guests come to hang out. I guess I feel like since it's packed with veggies, it's semi-healthy despite all the cheese! This dish just wouldn't be the same without it's topping of Progresso Italian Bread Crumbs. They turn a so-so dish into a winner by giving it an added crumbly texture and and a taste you wouldn't believe! Try the recipe yourself the next time you need a quick and tasty dip, and don't forget to use your coupon for Progresso Bread Crumbs at Publix for a bonus discount on your meal prep!

Sweet & Savory Roasted Chicken Salad {Recipe}

Sweet & Savory Roasted Chicken Salad {Recipe}

I'm a sucker for a quick meal, but that doesn't mean I want to sacrifice taste. This Sweet & Savory Roasted Chicken Salad is made from a deli roasted chicken, so if you're short on time, you can still whip up a delicious meal without waiting hours or heating up your kitchen! Perfect for a quick dinner, to take along to a picnic, or serve at a cookout, this chicken salad has a sweet, nutty taste that everyone will love. Serve over a salad, in sandwiches, or on the side, and see why this will always be my go-to chicken salad recipe! Note: If you've never handled a whole chicken, I'll walk you through taking it apart. Also, this recipe can easily be doubled.

Quick & Easy School Lunch: Homemade Pizza Lunch-able

Quick & Easy School Lunch: Homemade Pizza Lunch-able

Bringing school lunches can get boring. They want the same sandwich day in and day out, or they beg for pre-packaged store-bought lunches. You know the ones I mean. Well, you can make them at home for a fraction of the cost and add in some healthy items too.

Easy Game Day Dinner + Coca-Cola Float Recipe & Straw Flags Free Printable!

Easy Game Day Dinner + Coca-Cola Float Recipe & Straw Flags Free Printable!

Who's ready for the big Game Day? I love a good get-together as much as the next lady, but I don't always enjoy being stuck in the kitchen preparing for it. You know me, I love quick and easy options, and one of the quickest and easiest options for a Game Day party or family dinner is to pick it up! I recently picked up a Coca-Cola & Pizza Combo at Sam's Club for so much less than you can get it delivered, made yummy Coca-Cola Floats for dessert and topped it all off with fun Game Day Straw Flags. It made the perfect playoff spread for our family dinner and I barely lifted a finger. I would call that a win!

Jenny Craig 5 Day Weight Loss Starter Kit {Unboxing and Review}

Jenny Craig 5 Day Weight Loss Starter Kit {Unboxing and Review}

I've dieted on and off throughout the past 15 years, and I've found that "diets" that provide portion-and calorie-controlled meals are the simplest to follow, the easiest to stick to, and the most effective in the long run. Quick-fix diets may work for the (very) short term, but you quickly gain back everything you lost and then some, which is known as "weight cycling" or "yo-yo dieting" and can increase the risk for certain health problems. Slow and steady wins the race, so if your dieting woe is choosing the right foods and controlling portions, Jenny Craig might just be for you, and for the first time ever, you can try out a week of meals before committing to the program.

How many of you have clothes that you've gotten rid of because you popped a button and didn't know how to sew it back on? Or if you do know how to sew, do you have a pile of these garments waiting for you to fix them? I know I do.
