Chocolate Chip Mini-Muffins, aka my addiction to Sally’s Baking Addiction

Moist, delicious chocolate chip muffins that are also good for you? Yes, please!

My goal with this blog is to share the recipes and food bloggers that help me to look like I’m a great cook. Sally’s Baking Addiction is in my list of top 10 favorite food bloggers, and definitely the best for any of your baking needs!

I found her a couple of years ago, when I wanted to make my father-in-law something special, and I was searching around the internet and came across her blog. I love that she is self-taught, also how well she explains the different methods of baking, measuring in an easy to understand way. Please check her out, the information there is so helpful, anyone can leave there with the basic knowledge that you need in order to be a successful baker at any level.

Baking really wasn’t my thing, I love to make meals, dinner especially. With Sally’s blog however, I have found great success and so many recipes, and I’m sure you will, too!

Please check out my video of Sally’s chocolate chip muffins below. You can make them any size, and I will provide the link for the full recipe here, so this way you can check out her blog. 

The only difference that I made was to add my Enrichables Pea Protein to the muffins. You absolutely cannot taste it, and it adds 3 grams of protein per scoop! I add this to everything, from macaroni and cheese, sauce, chili, muffins and smoothies. Even the pickiest eater can’t taste it, and there are a lot of picky eaters in my house!

Here is a link to the protein:

Finally, here is my video. I am using an app that is new to me, I am hoping this looks okay.


Air Fryer Peruvian Chicken

We eat a lot of chicken in this house, so I’m always looking for different ways to make it That are easy and keep the meat very tender.  I was happily surprised to learn that an air fryer is a great way to make rotisserie chicken!
I learned how to truss a chicken for this recipe, it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, as you will see in the video.  For this recipe, all you need is a whole chicken,  a lime, garlic and some spices – and an air fryer. Of course, you can certainly make this in the oven, it’s up to you!
This is a Pampered Chef recipe, and it was easy to make and very delicious. Many thanks to Doris Christopher, the founder of Pampered Chef, for stepping out in 1980 and realizing how she could help others be able to cook with the right tools in the kitchen.  I am forever thankful to you! 

Carnitas in the quick cooker/instant pot

I thought I would start with the one food blogger that I am a total fan girl over – Nagi at – love her!!

I found her several years ago, when I decided I wanted to make pulled pork, but I was so sick of barbecue after having lived in Georgia for 10 and 1/2 years. I wanted something different, and Nagi’s recipe was the answer!

I am a big researcher. I Google anything I ever want to know, and I definitely recommend you do the same if you’re looking for a good recipe. Do your research, because they are not all the same. This is especially important so that you can make sure that you have all the ingredients at home in order to make a specific recipe.

Back to Nagi, and her amazing carnitas recipe. When I read it, I had only ever made pulled pork by pouring barbecue sauce over it, so I was a little surprised to see that she used orange juice on her pork. Come to find out, citrus juice is a great meat tenderizer. I gave it a try and I was not disappointed at all. In fact, ever since I found that recipe, I think I’ve only made barbecued pulled pork twice! This recipe is absolutely amazing, there are so many things you can do with it, but what I like to do best is simply put it in a taco serve with cilantro and pickled onions.
You’ll see my recipe video here, but please also head over to Nagi’s website at, and you will see all of her amazing recipes, and her beautiful dog Dozier!! 

Please let me know if you try this recipe, and what you think of it. Let’s make great food together!
