One Pot Cheesy Chicken Taco Rice

one pot chicken rice 001

I chipped off a part of my tooth last night just chewing on some animal crackers. The part of the tooth that chipped off was decaying and the dentist had told me it needed a crown. Not anymore I guess! I just saved myself over $1,000 because I was just going to end up getting it pulled anyway. It is way in the back where my wisdom teeth were, and I don't think I'd end up missing it that much. Maybe one day I can get a replacement for it, but for now I can't really afford it. Have you ever had a ...

Baked Bufffalo Chicken Taquitos

baked buffalo chicken taquitos 045

It's been quite awhile since I've made anything with buffalo chicken. A really long time! And... it's the weekend. Tomorrow, I am going to my FIRST Frozen themed birthday party and I must say, that I am pretty excited to go. I haven't even seen the movie yet, but just by surfing through Pinterest I know who the characters are. :) If you cook the chicken in a slow cooker all day long these buffalo chicken taquitos come together pretty fast. Other options are to have a chicken already cooked in ...

Kale and Quinoa Salad

kale and quinoa salad 008

Oh joy, another salad. You're probably getting sick of seeing salads on just about every food blog  right now aren't you? Tis the season to start diets. Words like Healthy and Detox and smoothies are popping up everywhere now. I told myself that I had to stop eating crap. I've been eating a lot of that lately too. Crap like Multi-grain tortilla chips with flax seed and guacamole. I keep on telling myself those chips are healthy, because they contain flax seeds in them. Pepperoni Pizza ...

BLT Guacamole

blt guacamole 010

Who doesn't love a good BLT sandwich? It has bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes in it. Speaking of which, I need to make one of those sandwiches soon.It's been awhile. I have a couple friends who don't like bacon, and I still wonder why I'm friends with them?  J/K btw. ;) This guacamole has every element in a BLT sandwich minus the lettuce. I don't know why, but whenever I try to type in guacamole in this blog, I want to spell it as gaucamole instead.  Don't know why, but it's just a habit and I want t ...

Best Ever Beer Cheese Soup

best ever beer cheese soup 084

I'm just going to come out and say, that I am not a beer drinker. But, when the beer is in something like soup or some kind of baked good  I will eat it. Have you had beer bread before? Mmmmmmm....  Oh yah, and pardon the odd yellow color of this soup, but that is what it looks like! It's 0 degrees right now and the wind chill outside is -17 with winds gusting to 30 miles per hour.  Yep, Winter is finally here and it stinks. I'll be making a lot of soup in the next couple of weeks. Baby, it's ...

The Hangover Quesadilla

Happy 2015! Last year was a good year for this blog, and I can't wait to see what this year brings! The best thing I ever did for this blog, was to buy a book on food photography and practice taking better pictures. The book I bought was Tasty Food Photography, you can get it on Pinch of Yum's site.  Two of my recipes were featured on the Huffington Post and 1 was featured on Buzzfeed. I would like to see my site traffic grow even higher this year, and  get more recipes featured. P ...

Overnight Orange Cinnamon Rolls

overnight orange cinnamon rolls 025

Awhile back, I tried making some low fat cinnamon rolls and wondered why they hardly rose at all. I looked at the back of the yeast package, and it had expired in 2012 of February. That would be why! I got some new yeast at the grocery store, so I have a fresh infection  now. That was a terrible joke, I know. Anyways, always check the expired date on your yeast packages. I'm never buying those instant yeast packages you get at Sam's Club ever again. By the time I actually get to use them the ...

Citrus, Pomegranate, and Avocado Salad

blood orange salad 014

It's blood orange season and they were on sale at the grocery store. We also got a basket of fruit for Christmas which had oranges, grapefruit, pineapple, and apples in it. Citrus salad it is! I thought, I'd give grapefruit a try again and nope not going to happen. There's just something about grapefruit that I don't like. It's bitter to me. I do however love those grapefruit candy slices at the grocery store. They make those super sweet with adding a ton of extra sugar in to them. This salad ...
