It was so delicious I felt like I ordered it from a BBQ restaurant or something! The side served with this delicious sandwich was my own special homemade potato salad. Here’s how I made it:

BBQ Chicken Sandwich Ingredients:

  • Package of thawed chicken (however much you want to make)
  • BBQ Sauce (Your favorite and however much will satisfy your BBQ taste buds)
  • 1 can chicken broth
  • Hamburger buns
  • Pickles (optional)

Directions:

  1. In a slow cooker, pour the chicken broth and cook the chicken in it on the 8 hour low setting. It will not take an entire 8 hours to cook, but probably 5 or 6.
  2. Once cooked, Remove any skin and bone if you did not use skinless and boneless chicken.
  3. Shred chicken using 2 forks.
  4. In a large bowl mix chicken with however much BBQ sauce you like. I will let you be the judge.
  5. Put a generous amount on your hamburger buns and eat away! I personally like to toast my bread and add pickles. But you make it however you like!

Potato Salad Ingredients:

  • 4 large russet potatoes
  • Mayo
  • Mustard
  • ½ onion
  • Handful dill pickle chips
  • 6-8 hard-boiled eggs
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Peel and dice the potatoes. The smaller the potato pieces the shorter time it takes for them to cook.
  2. Cook them in a pot of boiling salted water for about 10 minutes no longer. You want the potatoes to be soft but not too soft otherwise they will turn to mush.
  3. Boil eggs in pot of water for ten minutes after the water starts to boil.
  4. Drain potatoes and cool eggs before peeling.
  5. Chop the onion and pickles in a food processor. Then chop up the hard boiled eggs. You can remove the yolk if you like.
  6. Throw all ingredients in a large bowl. Add enough mustard and mayo to your liking and there you have it: homemade potato salad!

My First Cake Made From Scratch

While skimming through my WordPress reader, I came across this delicious looking cake that I bookmarked in my dessert recipes folder because it looked amazing. The recipe tells you how to make it from scratch using ingredients that I already had in my kitchen. So I pinned it, printed out the recipe, and decided that I was going to make dessert tonight. It is definitely not something I can handle eating every day because it uses so much sugar, but for those sugar rush cravings I have, this is the perfect fix. And just so you know, the batter was so delicious I swear I could’ve ate it by itself! This is by far better than anything you could ever buy prepackaged.

Meat, Cheese & Spinach Stuffed Pasta Shells

The Finished Product. (:

These Delicious Homemade Meat, Cheese & Spinach Stuffed Shells was what I had for dinner a couple nights ago, and let me just inform you that they were so good, I literally could have had an orgasm in my mouth. A little too dramatic, lol but seriously, they were THAT good. I got the recipe from a fellow blogger although their recipe used very little amounts of ingredients. I used about twice as much as their recipe had and I added ground beef for the extra protein. My mom mentioned that I might be an even better cook than she is! That’s one of the greatest compliments ever because my mom is the best cook ever in my opinion. Ever since I was a little girl she always made homemade dinners from scratch Brazilian style that always tasted like heaven. So for her to tell me I could be a better cook than her is unbelievable. I posted the picture of my finished meal on Facebook and it got pinned on Pinterest! That just tells me how amazing my food looks (thanks to Instagram). I will leave reference for the bloggers recipe if you would like to make it yourself! (:
