IMG_7044I can’t believe I haven’t made anything with peaches yet! I wanted to make a roasted peach dessert, but decided to make this salsa instead. I’m sure that doesn’t come as much of a surprise, considering I’m on a Mexican food-making kick lately. I’m glad I changed my mind, though, as the salsa was incredible! I loved the sweetness of the peaches paired with the spiciness of the Serrano peppers. Serve the salsa with tortilla chips or on top of grilled chicken breasts.

I love summertime, primarily because it’s grilling season. I’ve always been a fan of grilled food with that delicious char flavor. This spicy corn salad has the grilled taste and bursts with flavor, from the spice of the hot sauce to the sweetness of the sugar and honey. The dish pairs wonderfully with grilled chicken, and even better with this honey-lime chicken burrito!

CHEESE! I don’t think I could live without it. I’ve considered cutting out dairy products, but the thought of life without cheese makes me cringe. This queso dip was the epitome of cheesy deliciousness with just the right amount of spice from the serrano. The dip would be perfect for your Fourth of July party tomorrow!

With summer right around the corner, I couldn’t think of a better way to welcome the season than some delicious BBQ food. These pulled BBQ chicken sliders are a twist on the pulled pork sandwich–the chicken is just as flavorful and takes half the amount of time to cook! Pair the sliders with some homemade potato salad (recipe coming soon), and your taste buds will thank you. :)

IMG_5791I’ve always been obsessed with chicken tenders–served with lots of ranch, of course. Growing up, my brothers and I ordered chicken fingers every time our family went out to dinner…every time. But one night at dinner, my mom forced us to order something else on the menu. We had no idea what to get!

A few years ago, my mom fed my obsession and sent me a three-ingredient recipe for homemade chicken strips. Since then, these chicken tenders have been my go-to recipe for game day appetizers or dinner parties; that was until I found this recipe for quinoa crusted chicken strips. Although more labor intensive than the other recipe, these chicken strips were incredibly flavorful and delicious, especially when paired with the slightly sweet BBQ honey mustard.

Yes, you read that correctly–bacon-wrapped buffalo chicken jalapeño poppers. Crazy, right?! I stumbled across this recipe a few months ago, but completely forgot about it until now. These poppers were unbelievably flavorful, with just the right amount of kick from the buffalo sauce and jalapeño. If you’re like me and love bacon, buffalo sauce and jalapeños, please go make these!

Happy New Year! After a wonderful two weeks off work, I’m finally back at the office today. I put cooking and blogging on the back burner over the break, but I’m back in action now and bring you potato croquettes. These crispy taters are a must-make. I brought the croquettes to a football party over the weekend and they were gobbled up in no time. I think my brother alone ate five of them!
