{bay bakes // chocolate chip cookie bars}

Sweet. Salty. Chocolaty. Shall I keep going?

If you’re working on your quarantine bod too, I got a good one for you. Really, Bay has a good one for you!

In the last week or so there is one thing I’ve become very good at, taste testing! Ha! And these bars get my stamp of delicious approval.

Is it possible that baking cookies into the form of bars actually makes them taste better? I think Bay might be on to something here!

{pf chang’s lettuce wraps}

Happy Hump Day friends! I’m trying my best to be peppy AF, but to be honest – I’m not feeling it. Politics. Coronavirus. Nashville. It’s just kinda sad, you know what I mean? And I gave up beer + wine, so I can’t even self medicate (my favorite way) at the end of the day.

Since I don’t have much to say – let’s keep it short + sweet! How about a bomb ass recipe?

{oven baked crunchy chicken tacos}

SHOP: Tacos + Love Hoodie | Levi’s Shorts | Sunglasses | Hat

If you had to choose between being skinny or eating tacos. Would you choose crunchy or soft tacos 🌮🤔

Or Taco Bell 😆 I’m telling you a Taco Bell on the beach is good for the soul 🌊 add it to you summer to-do list!

It’s been a while since I shared a good ol Taco Tuesday recipe. I’ve kinda switched gears and Tuesday have become a regular Target sharing day. But, I tried out a new recipe last week and….

HIT it straight out of the ballpark. With help of the ever so talented, Half Baked Harvest. This recipe was adapted from her oven baked tacos. I just switched it up a bit to make them a little more xoxo stacyb….and a lot less ingredients!

{valentine’s day snack board}

In case you haven’t heard – snack boards are all the rage right now. And for good reason! They are so fun for kids and grown ups, VERY easy to throw together and allow you to offer something for everyone to snack on.

I really try to focus on healthy-ish recipes, but the Holiday Whore in me just can’t help it this time of year.

{shrimp + pineapple fried rice}

Hi friends! It’s been a while since I’ve shared a recipe on here. So, I wanted to change that STAT!

This coming Saturday is Chinese New Year. And you know that I’m all about celebrating ALL THE THINGS. Holidays are kinda my thing! We like to go all out. Big or small. Holiday or not. Typically we celebrate with one main thing…….

FOOD!

Bay and I wanted to put a fun + healthy spin on one of your very favorite Chinese dishes. Fried rice. If Bay could eat fried rice every day, she 100% would. Ha! Since it’s the new year and everyone, inducing myself, seem to be on the clean eating train. I am currently on week #2 of the Kaia Fit 30-day Jump-start program. Which is very clean eating.

My wheels started turning and I decided to whip up on of my favorite healthy rice dishes. Shrimp + Pineapple Fried Rice using Hinode Calrose Brown Rice. Grown in U.S.A. Non GMO. Gluten Free. Heart healthy.

You can find a variety of Hinode rice at Walmart + Nugget Market.

Before we get started on the recipe, I wanted to chat a little more about Chinese New Year.
