Dinner for Two and Buffalo Chicken Pizza!

Buffalo Chicken PizzaI know. I know. I have been gone FOREVER.  But I’m back, just in time for the PANTHERS GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL!!!  And for this very very special event, I am turning to one of my new favorite cookbooks this year, Dinner for Two to serve you a delicious Buffalo Chicken Pizza!  Dinner for Two is the creative creation of Julie from Table for Two.  I’ve been such a fan of her for years, so you can imagine how excited I was that she was coming out with a cookbook!  And the fact that it’s for TWO and my hubby and I are just the two of us?  Perfection.  There are amazing recipes in the book like Parmesan-Crusted Chicken Rice Bowls, Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Slow Cooker Pulled BBQ Chicken Sandwiches, Slow Cooker White Bean and Kielbasa Soup and Beer Braised Roast with Polenta!  The recipes have such a great flavor variety and there are so many recipes and ALL for two! Literally perfect for me (and probably you!)!Buffalo Chicken Pizza

This buffalo chicken pizza is perfect for many reasons: it’s great for the Super Bowl, it’s EASY, it’s delicious and (probably most importantly) my husband loves it!  I’m so excited to add this to our regular recipe rotation!  Like I said in my last post, I’ve been super busy with work.  I started a new job in November and have been basically nonstop since then.  It’s all good and I LOVE it, but sometimes I have to put this blog on the back burner and focus on getting work done for my clients and dinner on the table for my hubs.  This recipe is PERFECT for that.  It’s literally so easy that you can basically throw it all together and grab a glass of wine, empty the dishwasher and tidy up the kitchen while you’re at it!  Perfect for one of those weeknights you just don’t have the energy to fix up a big meal!  It’s so simple and quick!Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Plus it has a TON of chicken on it, which is a major plus for my husband who usually doesn’t like having pizzas for dinner because there isn’t enough meat on them!  This one is just covered in delicious buffalo chicken, with the perfect amount of blue cheese dressing to bring down the heat a bit.  I highly recommend you make this for the Super Bowl. Or a date night. Or any night.  Just go make it already… you won’t regret it!Buffalo Chicken Pizza

Slow Cooked Balsamic Chicken and an Interview with a Chicken Farmer

This post was sponsored by Best Food Facts, who gave me the unique opportunity to travel the country three times this year, meet fantastic farmers (like Lauren who you’ll meet in this post), and talk to dozens of experts about food production, nutrition, etc.!  All opinions and thoughts are my own (and Lauren’s where applicable in the interview of course!)slow cooked balsamic chickenSo let me tell you about Lauren.  I ADORE this girl.  Like as soon as I had dinner with her on our first trip (California) I knew I wanted to be friends with this person.  She is so smart, down to earth, kind, and interesting.  She runs this fabulous blog called Paint the Town Ag{riculture}, which I thought was darling and obviously realized right away how creative she was.  She married a farmer and raises her two precious boys there on the farm with her husband.  They farm, among other things, chickens!

Albion Fit Review and Giveaway!

Albion Fit Review and GiveawaySo y’all know I love yoga, right? It’s my favorite way to decompress from a stressful day or week at work, and helps alleviate so much pain in my back and other joints. Vinyasa is my jam, though I used to be a pretty hardcore Bikram lover. So of course I’m always on the lookout for cute and comfortable clothes to wear to my next yoga class…that’s when I discovered Albion Fit on Instagram. I mean y’all…their stuff is SO gorgeous… their leggings and swimsuits in particular just make my heart flutter. So I reached out to them to see if they would work with me to do a review of their leggings as well as a giveaway so I can share their great stuff with two lucky readers! (Giveaway is now closed… Winners were Rust and Alexandra!) Continue reading →

#TorteTuesday: Pumpkin Apple Torte with Cranberry Compote

Pumpkins and apples and tortes, oh my!  This month’s #TorteTuesday is dedicated to a deliciously homey (and easy!) Pumpkin Apple Torte with Cranberry Compote.Pumpkin Apple Torte with Cranberry Compote

So yea, I missed #TorteTuesday last Tuesday.  I gave a pretty solid explanation (I think?), but the tl;dr is that I was super busy at work and so I delayed #TorteTuesday to the second Tuesday of the month for November.  I did provide you with a compilation of all of my tortes this year so hopefully that’s something!

#TorteTuesday: Compilation

It’s #TorteTuesday and I have nothing prepared.  I’m the worst.  I don’t even know what to tell you other than to say that this last month and a half has been completely insane.  Since Sept. 20 I’ve gone to NY, Maine, Houston, Chicago, and Wilmington.  I’ve gone to two weddings.  I’ve had a trial and several smaller hearings and a mediation.  I’ve purchased a home (with the hubs), packed up our old place, moved to the new place, then unpacked and organized as best I could.  I’ve helped my mom move, which took over 12 hours this past weekend.  I’ve taught at a CLE.  I’ve been non-stop to tell you the truth, and I’m whooped.  It has been grueling to say the least.

So because I’m a complete mess and haven’t had a chance to make a torte for November (hoping to get to it this weekend!), I’ve decided to put together a little compilation of all of my #tortetuesday creations!  I’ve linked them below in the order that they appear (left to right, top to bottom).  Please make one and enjoy it!  If you make one, please tag me on instagram or twitter @orderinthekitch and use the hashtag #tortetuesday!  Happy Tuesday!

Last Week on “The Docket”

In court every morning, the judge calls the “docket” or the calendar for that day. Here on the blog, “The Docket” is my post that gives you a little peek into the life of the Attorney in an Apron, and what kinds of fun things are happening in my life! #TASTE15

The last week (and a half) has been CRAZY y’all!  On Friday the 16th, we closed on our new home (OMG), painters and packers came Saturday, movers came Sunday (and it took 11 hours…shoot me), then on Tuesday I was off to Chicago for the last leg of #TASTE15.  We had already been to wine country, then Arkansas, so this was our final trip, and was so incredibly fun!

BIG NEWS! We’ve Moved (AGAIN!)

Big news guys!  Remember last month when I #vagueposted that some big things were happening and I just wasn’t ready to reveal them yet?  Welllll…. we bought a home!  Our first home ownership!
We've Moved!

I was so nervous that, if I posted about it, it would totally jinx it and then it wouldn’t happen on time (or at all)!  But it did, and we closed on our home and we are officially homeowners!  Big step for us!  2015 has been quite a year…first marriage now a home!  It’s a great location and we love it so much (and Muggsy is so happy there!)!  Matt can walk to work, so it’s extra convenient!  Once we are all unpacked and such, I will post pictures and can’t wait to share it all with you!  Thank you so much for your patience during this crazy time, and I’ll get back to regularly posting as soon as possible!!

For now, here’s one of my most popular posts on Pinterest: We’ve MOOved Cow-Print Cookies!We've Moved!

Roasted Tomato and Garlic Marinara Sauce

This Roasted Tomato and Garlic Marinara is the perfect weeknight meal in, when you want something healthy and delicious!

Roasted Tomato and Garlic Marinara

October is National Pasta Month!  This means that it pretty much wins as my favorite month, because pasta is a staple in my home.  That’s why I’m SO excited to team up with Dreamfields Pasta to tell you guys about their healthier pasta!  Dreamfields is featuring a different blogger every day in October for #healthypastamonth, and I’m so honored to be included in this group!  They are also picking a winner for a family pack of Dreamfields pasta and a $25 gift card so check that out below! GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED: WINNER IS SANDY FROM CA! Dreamfields pasta is made with premium durum wheat semolina in North Dakota. That’s why it has the same delicious taste and texture of traditional pasta but with added nutrients… A one-cup cooked serving of Dreamfields pasta (2 oz. dry) provides 5 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein!

Today’s recipe is a healthy marinara recipe, which has an incredible depth of flavor from one of my favorite ways to prepare foods: roasting.  The roasted tomatoes and garlic add extra flavor without added calories, and the fresh herbs add some body to the sauce as well! Continue reading →
