Whatchamacallit Peanut Butter Bars

Whatchamacallit Peanut Butter Bars

Have you ever had a Whatchamacallit candy bar?? They are my favorite but are usually overshadowed by the more popular Reese’s, Kit Kats and Twix. That’s a shame. These bars totally taste like a Whatchamacallit bar, but better (and they’re gluten-free). With their peanut butter rice crispy base, and layers of caramel and chocolate, these are one of the best desserts I have ever eaten.

Greek Grilled Chicken Salad with Easy Homemade Tzatziki

Greek Grilled Chicken Salad with Easy Homemade Tzatziki

It’s summer, I don’t want to go near my oven, and I love going outside and smelling dinner on the grill.  That means lots of grilled chicken for weeknight meals.   It also means lots of easy  it’s-too-hot-to-cook salads. This might be my favorite salad ever. It has grilled chicken, grilled sliced red onions, juicy tomatoes, kalamata olives, feta, cucumbers, and a super easy homemade tzatziki sauce.

Crockpot Balsamic Shredded Chicken and Onions

Crockpot Balsamic Shredded Chicken

Crockpot (I know crockpot is a brand, but ‘slow cooker’ chicken just doesn’t have the same ring to it!) meals usually are not the prettiest.  But if you need an easy, healthy, flavorful weeknight meal, this chicken fits the bill.  It’s also likely you already have all of the ingredients needed for this recipe already in your kitchen. Balsamic vinegar, lots of herbs, sliced onions, and juicy diced tomatoes cook together for hours to infuse this shredded chicken with lots of flavor–you can eat it on its own, spoon it over rice or pasta or a salad, or make it into wraps.

Chocolate Pudding Pie with Pretzel Crust and Peanut Butter Whipped Cream

Chocolate Pudding Pie with Pretzel Crust and Peanut Butter Whipped Cream

Ok, I missed Pi day last week but it’s not too late to make pie, right? This pie is a life-changer. The salty-sweet crunchy pretzel crust is the base of a chocolate pudding pie topped with homemade light and fluffy peanut butter whipped cream.  The idea for this pie came to me in a dream (I know…ridiculous..) and I have a feeling I’ll be dreaming about it a lot more now that I’ve actually made and eaten it!

Roasted Lemon-Herb Chicken Thighs

Roasted Lemon-Herb Chicken Thighs

This chicken is heavenly. It’s somehow both rich and light and full of flavor. My husband said that this chicken made him “reevaluate his life”.  I’m not entirely sure what he meant, but I’m 99% sure it was a good thing. Crispy brown skin, tons of lemony juice, and tenderly moist meat make this one of my favorite (and super easy) weeknight meals.

Mixed Berry Oat Muffins with Lemon Sugar

Mixed Berry Oat Muffins with Lemon Sugar

 

These muffins are packed full of berries—a berry in every bite!  The flour used for these is comprised entirely of gluten-free oats.  You would think they would be dense, but they come out of the oven nice and fluffy. The sweet and tart lemon sugar topping pairs perfectly with the sweet and tart berries inside. These are a great weekend morning welcome into spring!

Whipped Vanilla Honey Butter

Whipped Vanilla Honey Butter

 

I’m sorry for this post. This butter is about to become your new favorite addiction (it’s definitely mine!) We can all blame my friend Olivia, who evilly introduced me to this at the party we threw for our friend’s birthday last month. I’m pretty sure I saw some people eating it straight out of their spoons. She found it at Costco, but I had all of the ingredients in my kitchen, so I figured “why not?”
