Buffalo Chicken Salad

It’s Wellness Wednesday! My Buffalo Chicken Salad. This Salad is made with two of my favorite companies that I work with monthly, Just Meats and Farmhouse Delivery.

Buffalo Chicken salad on a bed of romaine lettuce and mixed greens, sliced buffalo chicken from Just Meats, tomatoes, bacon, shredded cheese, farm fresh eggs, elbow pasta tossed in ranch dressing and fire chili ranch dressing. This salad is one that my entire family loved. Including the picky eater. So good.

This meal was created in under 3o minutes. Busy nights don’t mean eating fast food. So moms who may have kids who are athletes and have late practices or games. This meal can be prepared in a short period of time. I toss in the pasta for carbs for my kids after games or practices.

BBQ Ribs Sandwich

The McRib sandwich from MCDonalds was a popular sandwich when I was a teenager. For those who may not remember this sandwich was a bbq rib sandwich with pickles and onions. People would go crazy for this sandwich. It could be because it was only for a Limited Time offer.  The sandwich is available each year in November. Every time this sandwich is available people go crazy. I made my own version of the McRib Sandwich. My sandwich is a Twice Pork Rib Sandwich. I used pork Ribs and Bacon in my BBQ Sauce.These Ribs were baked in the oven. I slow-cooked the ribs in the oven.

Lasagna Soup

It’s been cold and rainy here in Houston. Saturdays are my day of rest. It’s my day that I intentionally take moments to be still and stop from all of the busyness. It’s something that I’ve done for years and really centers me as we enter a new week. It’s also my day to catch up on my TV shows and watch movies I haven’t watched yet. I hope that your Saturday is comforting, calm and rewarding. 

I love comfort food. This Lasagna soup was comforting, warm and cheesy. I made my first Lasagna soup over a year ago. This soup has since gone viral and there are so many recipes all over the internet.

Oven Baked Ribs

I love bbq ribs. Ribs are one of the things we grill or cook on our smoker. But typically this is done on the weekend. I was craving ribs a few days ago but I didn’t have time to cook any outside so I resorted to the oven to bake my ribs. Simple and easy way to cook fall off the bones ribs. I served the ribs with French fries, side salad and a roll.

White Beans Wednesday

Growing up in Louisiana my family would prepare White beans every Wednesday. This created the white beans Wednesday.

One of meat that we love in our White beans is pork tails. I know everyone won’t appreciate this delicious delicacy. But don’t knock it till you try it. 😂😂😋😋

Crispy Chicken Bowls

I love getting my kids involved when I’m preparing meals or planning my menus. 

I was talking with them about this dish that I wanted to create. My Crispy Chicken bowl is a playoff of the popular KFC Famous chicken bowl. 

My teenager loves spicy chips. She had a bag of funyuns and wanted to make spicy chicken nuggets instead of the regular crispy chicken. I was like cool deal, let’s try it.

1929 Po-boy Kitchen

My family and I visited 1929 several months ago. As I was planning my content for the next few weeks, I made sure to add this one to the list. 1929 is the home of the Oxtail Yakamein. What is this you ask, Oxtail Yakamein is a beef noodle soup with creole seasonings.

Being from Louisiana, I have to admit that I had never eaten this until I visited 1929. I only heard about Yakamein when I was watching a Netflix Show called “Street Food”. They shared all about this New Orleans style dish.

My husband has heard of it and had eaten it prior to us dining at 1929. But he went to college in New Orleans and lived and worked in New Orleans for several years.

In addition to Yakamein, 1929 serves several Louisiana classics like red beans and rice, poor boys, seafood and much more.

Cajun Collard Green & Cabbage

I have a confession, I’m not much of a vegetable eater? I know, I know, yes I need vegetables. But I have a few that I like. Collard greens are an excellent source of vitamin A, C, and calcium. In addition, rich in vitamin K, and a good source of iron, vitamin B-6, and magnesium. Collard greens are very good for you. This is something that I do eat.

Cabbage is a good source of Vitamin C, high in fiber and Vitamin K.

Collard greens + Cabbage = a very nutritious dish.

Today I’m sharing my Cajunified Collard Greens and cabbage dish.

Very simple and easy to make.
