Pinterest Trial #5: Tuscan Chicken

We're in love with Alyssa Rivers' Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken.
I found it on Pinterest, saved it, and haven't stopped referring to it again and again.

I'm a terrible cook. I always forget something, or take shortcuts when following recipes, and usually that means the whole thing implodes. Not the case with this batch of deliciousness.

PC: From the Original Recipe here.

There are a few differences between the creative genius' version and ours (some you'll notice straight away, others maybe not):
  • The original recipe calls for garlic powder & chopped spinach (amongst other things). We have a brand-spanking-new garlic press, so fresh garlic (3tsp) was a "necessity" & I bought the wrong spinach, so we used baby spinach leaves.
  • Her kitchen, camera and photography skills are miles ahead of our own.
  • We should've browned the chicken a liiiiiittle longer.
  • Our sauce is a little too yellow. Not sure why, but it still tastes great!!!

You can serve the creamy chicken with whatever you feel like, but as a long term fan of tagliatelle, I opted to copy Alyssa.

Now excuse me while I go reheat my leftovers for lunch...

Weekly Quotable: Let Them Eat Cake!

Just FYI: "Let them eat cake" is a phrase widely attributed to Marie-Antoinette, but according to History.com, she probably never even said it.

Being Good in Bed & Other Unwholesome Habits

How are those New Year's Resolutions working out for you?
Sticking to my new morning routine is one that continued to kick my ass right into October. I was pretty motivated to kick off my newly designed routine but a few weeks into 2017 it tanked. Hard.

Living comfortably is a privilege not afforded to many and all things considered, I must admit that my life actually is quite plush. I have room to be lazy in, including - but not limited to - sleeping in almost daily. Maybe that's how I got all fluffed up. (I literally - and I do mean LITERALLY - piled on the body mass of an average sized person*, except it was all excess fat.)
The Why Whatever the reason(s) behind my massive weight gain over the past 15 years, I've finally had enough when it dawned on me that although weight has nothing to do with worth or beauty, lab results are the kind of numbers you need to pay attention to (more on this later).

I was done with my lack of discipline.

I was done with unhealthy choices…
