Teriyaki Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Teriyaki Chicken Lettuce Wraps- bursting with Asian flavor, low carb, and done in under 30 minutes!

I don’t think it’ll come to a surprise to anyone when I say that some of my favorite flavors are Japanese. Being half Japanese, I grew up eating traditional food at my obachan’s house each Friday night and my more adventurous palette definitely stemmed from eating octopus salads and raw fish on a weekly basis. Thanks, Obachan!

While this recipe for Teriyaki Chicken Lettuce Wraps isn’t “exotic” in any way, it’s an incredibly big crowd pleaser. I think chicken teriyaki is arguably one of the most loved “Americanized” Japanese foods out there (with sushi also well up in the ranks) and with good reason. There’s something about that perfect sweet + salty combination that is completely addictive and –boy– when you get that perfect bite where the teriyaki sauce drenches the rice… H-E-A-V-E-N. It really doesn’t get any better!

AYOOOO!!! 2018 HELLO AND WELCOME!

Can you believe it? It’s here!

I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a little tired of all the indulgent holiday food. I mean, I LOVE it and wouldn’t have it any other way, but there comes a time when a girl just needs a break from sugar, butter, and fat.

Easier said than done.

I feel like I’m a little addicted to all those sugary and fatty foods right now. I find myself craving salt, not drinking enough water, and overall just feeling a little blah.

Christmas with the Kittens

Merry Christmas and happy holidays from our little fur-filled family to yours! We are on round two of the holiday celebrations (my family celebrates on Christmas Eve) and I’m typing this up quickly before heading off to make some creamed corn. :)

Here’s a little video compilation of some cute moments with our little babies! They are growing up SO fast and I’m happy we have some footage of them when they were still little.

Hope you’re celebrating with family and friends and eating lots of good food! ❤️

The Easiest, Most Delicious Pork Chops Ever

The Easiest, Most Delicious Pork Chops Ever- the best way to cook pork chops to be juicy and perfect!

I used to always think that I needed to share more complex recipes. I had a mental block where I imagined that none of you guys would want to see the simple recipes that I make on a weekly basis for Kyle and I.

I’m realizing that that’s pretty ridiculous since I’m sure what everyone wants in a recipe is for it to be easy, simple, and delicious! Why over-complicate a good thing?

So here I am, sharing what might be the easiest recipe ever. All it takes is 4 main ingredients (pork chops, olive oil, onions, and garlic salt) and doing a little switch-a-roo from the stove top to your oven. I serve this with ricearoni (#classy) and steamed veggies and I can have everything done and ready to eat in less than 15-20 minutes. Which is perfect when you’re feeling lazy, but still want something home-cooked!…
