Chicke, rice & pineapple 

I needed some quick & easy today as it was a busy day for our household. So I made chicken & rice with pineapple. 

I cubed up the chicken & seasoned it & cooked it in butter! Below is a picture of the seasonings that I used & I used a teaspoon of each. 

While that was cooking I made the rice in my rice cooker. One cup of white rice & one cup of water. 

Next I put a teaspoon of butter in another pan & cooked the pineapple until it had a nice Carmel coloring. 

Then I mixed everything together. To add some color to the plate I added sliced tomatoes with dressing & some pepper flacks & green beans cooked in soy sauce. 

It completed the dish perfectly & tasted marvelous! Perfect quick lunch for today! 


Steak & pineapple

Hey guys! 

So I made this recipe a while back but forgot to post it. I made Steak, pineapple, small potatoes with herbs & a side salad with home made ranch & green olives!

My husband only eats chicken, beef & fish so I have to be creative to switch the flavors & meals up. 

Pineapple has been one of my favorite ingredients lately & it’s weird because as a kid I didn’t like pineapple that much & now I love it!! 

So for this recipe I cooked Milanese cut steak (which is my favorite!) and seasoned it with some paprika & cooked it in yup you guessed it butter! I topped the steak in pineapple that I pan fried in its own juice. 

For the potatoes I sautéed them in butter with some garlic & an Italian seasoning blend. They were so tasty & so much flavor! 

Then I made a side salad, which I cheated this time & bought a package salad & then added some tomatoes & green olives to it. I didn’t add to much of the green olives, but just enough for a little salty flavor. Then topped it with the ranch which I have the recipe on another post. 

This makes for a tasty, beautiful yet simple meal & I always make enough so I have leftovers to send to work with my husband. He enjoyed it the first time & even the second time around! 

I hope you enjoy it too if you try it!! Xo- C

Gluten Free White Cheddar Mac & Cheese

My husband has wanted Mac & Cheese so bad lately so I did some searching & finally just made my own recipe! 

So I got Barillas gluten free elbow noodles & Cracker Barrel’s White Cheddar. So after boiling the noodles I added the grated white cheddar & butter & buttermilk to make it creamy! Then I baked it for about 25 minutes to get it a little harder on the top! That’s how I like mine!

I served it with steak & shrimp & corn & a house salad. I have to say it was pretty taste & really wasn’t that hard to make. I also love that it was all gluten free! 

I have to say I’m enjoying cutting the gluten out especially since I’m starting to feel better! Hope that if you try to make it you enjoy it! Xo – C 

Burn baby, burn 🕯

I love candles! There’s something mesmerizing about the way the flame flickers on a candle. 

I always thought it was cool to have a candle holder that had cut outs to create the flickering on the wall or ceiling!

I’ve tried so many different brands of candles & everytine I still go back to my favorite brand yankee candle!

Today I bought some votives. It’s been a while since I have had some of yankee candles scents, but after today I’m in love with them again!

So I bought four scents: Sicilian Lemon, White Gardenia, Mango Peach Salsa & Coconut Beach. They are amazing smelling so far! Plus they last longer & are definitely made with a better wax!

Does anyone have any suggestions on scents to try? If so drop me a comment!! Xo – C
