Teriyaki Chicken

Chinese Food is something that we crave at least once a week. This week we were wanting Teriyaki Chicken and I totally forgot to pick up the Teriyaki Sauce. Thankfully I found this easy recipe on and thanks to the spice rack we got at the wedding I had all the ingredients on hand!! The original recipe has you cook the sauce on the stove then pour it over cooked chicken - - rather than doing that I used it as a marinade and then cooked the chicken in the sauce

Homemade Teriyaki Chicken Ingredients
-1/4 cup soy sauce
-1 cup water
-1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
-1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
-5 tablespoons packed brown sugar
-2 tablespoon honey
-2 tablespoons cornstarch
-2 Frozen Chicken Breast

1) Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl
2) Place Frozen Chicken Breasts in the Marinade cover with foil and let sit for at least 4 hours
3) Pour Chicken and sauce into a greased baking dish and bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes

Pizza Pie

Eddie's request this week for Football Sunday was pizza - I recently purchased a new cast iron skillet and decided to put it to use by making a stuffed pizza . . .However when it came out of the oven it was sooooooo huge we couldn't think to call it anything else but a literal pizza pie

Eddie's Pizza Pie Ingredients
-Pizza Crust (Click Here for my Pizza Crust Recipe)
-Tomato Sauce
-16oz Mozzarella Cheese
-1 Package of Pepperoni
-1 1b of Cooked Italian Sausage

1) Pre-Heat Oven to 400 degrees
2) Melt 1/4 stick of butter and brush around a cast iron skillet
3)Roll out 3/4 of the pizza dough so that it is about 2 in larger in diameter than your cast iron skillet
4) Add a layer of sauce, cheese, pepperoni, and sausage
5) Add a second layer of cheese, pepperoni, and sausage
6) Top all the toppings with a second layer of sauce
7) Roll out the remaining dough so that it tops the pizza
8) Roll together both layers of dough to form a crust
9) Cut slits in top crust then top…

Weekend Project - Pimping your Cell Phone

I have been known to use nail polish and more things then just my nails and this weekend I did just that!!! Recently Eddie upgraded our phones to Samsung Galaxy S3's. We both got our phones in white and while at first this wasn't a problem lately we haven't really known who's is who's. Neither of us like having cases on our phones so I did the obvious (or obvious to me) I painted my battery plate :)

Here is what the phone looked like before:
here is what it looks like now: 
If you have never painted anything other than your nails with nail polish before give it a try . . . it is one of the simpler paints to work with, everyone has it laying around, and best part is that it comes out shiny and glossy with very little effort.

Thirsty Thursday - Aug 30, 2012

Hey Ya'll Thirsty Thursday is something that I want to start putting up each week - whether it is alcoholic or just some cool new drink we have found the plan is to get you a new drink each week

This week for you we have 2 drinks to start you off

DRINK 1 S'more Russian 1 part Three Olives S'mores Vodka 2 parts Milk (we used non-fat) REVIEW/NOTES: The S'mores Vodka has more of a nutty taste than you would think but is actually really good. If you aren't used to the vodka taste try a more fatty milk (2% or whole) and that should help but definitely a must try if you can find the vodka DRINK 2 Jillian Micheal's Detox Water 60 oz of water 1 bag of dandelion root tea 1 Tablespoon Cranberry Juice 2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice REVIEW/NOTES: This water is suppose to be used to jump start a diet and help you loose some water weight. After mixing all the ingredients together you drink the whole pitcher throughout the day. Not going to lie it has a funky taste to it (thanks to t…
