My Salsa Verde Chicken and Wild Rice Soup is quick to prepare, healthy and zesty delicious!
I had my mom over for lunch last week and I was a little under the weather. Decided it was the perfect afternoon to make a quick and easy soup to warm my soul, haha
Not kidding, this soup was done in 10 minutes. In all fairness, I had leftover chicken breast from the night before and found a bag of already cooked wild rice from Target! You’ve got to check it out next time you are there. Total time saver for soups! Scroll down to see pics.
Warm, zesty and stick to your ribs delicious soup coming your way. Enjoy!
Does it get better than oozing chocolate and cookie dough? I think not
My Vanilla Malted Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars have the perfect buttery crisp outsides with the most sinful chocolatey soft centers. They are also great for packaging up for a potluck or gift giving to family and friends. My boys brought them to their Father’s and Son’s Camp trip last weekend and lets just say they didn’t bring any back with them, haha!

My Homemade Sopapilla Recipe is one of our favorite desserts to make as a family. Warm fried dough with melted butter, honey and powdered sugar!
I’ve been looking forward to sharing this recipe for weeks now. Let me start by saying I know people call these all kinds of different names. It kind of depends where you grew up! I’ve heard people call them scones, fry bread and sopapillas. I am not partial, I’ll call them anything, lol! I remember as a kid having warm sopapillas at a Mexican restaurant we went to and it was my favorite part of the meal!
If you are not aware of what this recipe is, let me explain. It’s a homemade dough, fried, then lathered with butter, honey and powdered sugar. Seriously does NOT get better than this.
When my family gets together on Sundays, we almost always end up making these. They are everyone’s favorite

It’s always a pleasure partnering with Fisher Nuts to bring you new recipes! I had so much fun creating this zesty Mexican rice salad loaded with chicken, vegetables and Fisher Nuts Chopped Pecans. Chicken and pecans go together so nicely. Adds a great nutty texture to each bite. I’ve also blended a simple cilantro dressing that gets stirred into the salad. This is a perfect salad to bring to a potluck or even by itself as a light dinner. All of my favorite flavors!
Hope you enjoy!
