Key Lime Pie|This Is Why I’m Full

The Hubby says I got way more excited about this Key Lime Pie than I should’ve, but I’m not gonna lie, it was amazing! I made it for our 1 year wedding anniversary (Yay, we made it! Everyone we know kept saying that the first year is the hardest, but every day was wonderful and I am so happy to call him my hubby!) and I wish that I had the time to make it again, the only really time consuming part was juicing the limes. Key Limes aren’t the size of regular limes, they are much smaller so it takes a lot more than you would think to get the juice you need to make the pie!
Like I said in the recipe you can buy the key lime juice both online and in a lot of stores, but for me there was something so satisfying about juicing the limes by hand! Hard work, but worth the effort for sure!

Chicken Broccoli Crescent Roll Bake|This Is Why I’m Full

This Chicken Broccoli Crescent Roll Bake is another one of those things I saw on Pinterest and just had to try! Ours didn’t end up being very pretty, and my goofy Hubby forgot to take a picture after it was sliced up (he takes 99% of the pictures you see on here!) so I can’t show the gooey cheesy deliciousness that is inside of these crescent rolls, but trust me, it was delicious!

Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas|This Is Why I’m Full

I like fajitas, but as I’ve said before, apartment living means we don’t have a barbecue or a grill… I know, sad. But that means that we have to find other ways to cook our fajitas, hence these Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas came into being! I think next time I might not put as much liquid, the onions and bell peppers weren’t as crunchy as I wanted them to be! But other than that they were really delicious! Not to mention how easy they are to get together!

Crock Pot French Chicken

I know this Crock Pot French Chicken sounds weird, but it is really good! The french dressing and the cranberry sauce mix well together, in fact I might mix some cranberry sauce into French dressing when I eat it on salads from now on!
I think next time I might leave out the onion soup mix, it didn’t really do anything and I would rather just slice up a fresh onion!

Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken|This Is Why I’m Full

This Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken is so good! We made ours into a stir-fry type dinner with some delicious brown rice! The hubby loves teriyaki chicken, and that’s a good thing because I do too! For the stir fry we put a little bit of oil into a pan on the stove and cooked up some zucchini, carrots, fresh bean sprouts (canned are yucky!) and some snap peas. It was awesome!

This Crock Pot Fancy Italian Chicken is crazy good! We ate ours in some amazing burritos and it was awesome. This recipe is the start of our week long Chicken Crock Pot extravaganza! We are starting off June the right way with some simple and delicious crock pot freezer meals.
I especially like this one because it is so versatile! It is really flavorful but doesn’t have to go with any specific side dish! Most of the meals we made had to be served with rice because anything else might have been weird!

Ten Minute Chicken Strips

Ten Minute Chicken Strips|This Is Why I’m Full

When I don’t feel well my Hubby is so wonderful, he takes amazing care of me! That’s where these Ten Minute Chicken Strips came from. I get sick a lot, I have had a terrible immune system for the last few years and I am blessed to have a man that loves me anyway.. And I am even more lucky to have a guy that will cook whatever I want when I want it (when we eventually have children I’m sure my pregnancy cravings will test that devotion a little bit!)
So anyway, I had been sick the whole weekend and it was Sunday night and he asked if I was up for eating.. I was starving. But all I could think about was chicken strips. Not fast food chicken, real chicken strips, tender and juicy and delicious. So he went Pinteresting and the only recipes he found called for the chicken to be soaked for AT LEAST 24 hours in Buttermilk, and that was far too long for me to wait! So we set about trying to make them without the 24 hour wait. Do you want to know what happened when we didn’t soak them chicken for 24 hours? Absolutely nothing! They were delicious and now we know that you don’t have to wait a whole day for delicious homemade chicken strips!

Buffalo Chicken Tater Tot Casserole

Buffalo Chicken Tater Tot Casserole|This Is Why I’m Full

This Buffalo Chicken Tater Tot Casserole is a recipe I found while perusing Pinterest one day and as I love tater tots like they were their own food group I immediately told the hubby that we needed to make this pronto!
I’m super weird about the texture of food, and I hate soggy food more than anything else. And when I re-read the recipe I was really worried that the tater tots were going to get soggy. Blechhh. But I made it according to the recipe and was pleasantly surprised when they weren’t soggy at all! The flavor is fantastic, next time I think I might pre-cook the chicken before I put it into the pan because the tots cooked too fast and the chicken took longer than I thought and I had to put foil over the top so the tots didn’t burn!
