My Chicken and Black Bean Green Chili Rice Skillet makes the perfect quick and simple weeknight dinner!

I am always looking for quick and simple weeknight dinners and this one I developed last week was a huge success.  We love Mexican dinners every week and this was a great addition to add to my rotating menu options.
You can use a rotisserie chicken to save yourself some time, or if you have time I highly suggest grilling up my Taco Lime Chicken.  We used it for this recipe and it was the perfect addition with the spices in the rice.
Break out your cast iron skillet and try out this zesty chicken and rice skillet this week!
Enjoy friends!

My Brown Butter Cinnamon Sugar Cookie Bars will make anyone’s day a little brighter!

I fell in love.  With these cookie bars!!!  Brown butter, sweet cinnamon and sugar, oh my!!  This dough was literally deadly.  I kept going back for little tastes.
Now, you will need to find some cinnamon chips.  I know some grocery stores sell them, but many don’t.  Keep your eyes out for them.   If you are not having any luck, I found some on Amazon you can order, and trust me they are worth every penny!

Honey Whole Wheat Pizza Dough Recipe

Honey Whole Wheat Pizza Dough Recipe

Jan 29, 2014 | Dinner, Skinny Palate, Superbowl | Tags: , ,


My Honey Whole Wheat Pizza Dough is a sure winner for your family and friends!

I have been making pizza for a couple weeks now and cannot stop!  I used to stock up on store-bought dough from Trader Joe’s like it was going out of style.  I still love it, but there’s something about making your own pizza dough in your kitchen that can’t be beat!

My recipe could not be more simple to prepare.  No waiting for the dough to rise, it’s literally done in about 15 minutes.

So excited for you to make your own dough for your family, not only does it taste incredible, your house smells like a dream too!
