In My Belly in 30: Zippy ChickParm (Chicken Parmesan)

I love chicken parmesan. And as  you’ve probably noticed, I’m  not one of those people that has time to be completely organic, Paleo, gluten-free, etc. Sometimes, I barely have time to sit down to eat at all. That’s real life for me. Maybe your life looks different. Nothing wrong with that. So I’ve been in need of a quick and yummy chicken parmesan recipe. In fact, I’m always looking for recipes that are delicious, easy, quick, and not completely horrible for my health.     When I find one, I add it to my monthly rotation, and I share it...

Six Easy and Creative Ideas For Thanksgiving Leftovers

    Hello Broads! Now that we have all risen from our holiday-induced food comas, we have to address the pounds and pounds of leftovers free-riding in the kitchen.     What to do? Sure, today you’re eating turkey sammiches with cranberry sauce and cream cheese, but isn’t there more? What else can you concoct with these marvelous heaping piles of left-behinds? The following are six of my favorite unique ideas for your leftovers that will be as good, if not better, than the original feast!     Eggnog French Toast Casserole with Cranberry Compote       This works best if bread is slightly dry or stale for maximum absorption. You can leave bread out overnight. If you forget, no biggie.   Casserole Ingredients: 4 large eggs 4 cups eggnog 2 teaspoons vanilla 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon 1 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon cloves 8 large slices slightly stale bread   Compote Ingredients: 2 cups cranberry sauce 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 cup wine   Instructions: Grease a 9 by 12 inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate for one hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Leave dish covered with foil and bake for 25 minutes....

Boxycharm Subscription Box: November 2017 Unboxing!

Boxycharm is a beauty subscription box that costs $21 per month. They feature makeup, skin care, and hair care products, and their website states that they send 4 to 5 full-sized or luxury-sized beauty products in each box. The company guarantees the box value to be over $100. Boxycharm is my all time favorite subscription box.

Ipsy Subscription Box: November 2017 Unboxing!

Ipsy is a fantastic monthly subscription box, created by beauty influencer Michelle Phan, as well as Marcelo Camberos and Jennifer Goldfarb. It’s been around since 2011, and is the very first subscription box I ever tried back in 2015. When you sign up, you complete a beauty profile quiz, which determines the products you receive in your bag. Some subscribers don’t think the quiz makes much of a difference, but I have noticed I almost never get hair products, which was what I specifically stated in my beauty quiz that I didn’t want. It seems like they’re listening.  ...
