My go to meals for a busy week!

I am going to give you a weekly recipe for my favorite healthy go to meals! As a working mother of three I am constantly busy but I love yummy and healthy food! This recipe was inspired by Jamie Oliver's quick and easy meals( I have secretly fallen in love with him, he's seriously adorable) and I am going to share it with you! These wings are tender and so so delicious.




Chicken wings 6

Teriyaki sauce 4tbs (I use sugar free

Spring Onions

Sesame seeds


Brussel Sprouts


Olive oil

So first, the wings! I got these started first, since they took the longest!

Take a pan that can fit all of the wings in a single layer. Spread olive oil around the bottom of the pan and set the burner to medium-high heat. Heat the olive oil until you can easily swish it around coating the entire bottom of the pan. Then lay the wings in the pan. I like to shake my pan in a circular motion every 3-5 minutes to evenly cook the wings. Once you get a bit of darkening on the wings you add 3 tablespoons of the teriyaki. I continue my circular shaking of the pan to evenly coat the wings. You can also use a spatula, which some may find easier! Then once the teriyaki starts sizzling, add hot water. Just enough to cover the wings. Cover and leave it for a while.

Next, the brussel sprouts. First I slice all of my brussel sprouts in half. I follow the same instructions with my olive oil. Lay the brussel sprouts flat in the pan, get a good crisping on them. Then I add the remaining teriyaki for a bit of flavor! Thoroughly coat the brussel sprouts in the seasonings, olive oil, and teriyaki mixture. Add a cup of water to the brussel sprouts, cover and leave.

Now, on to the side salad! This part is optional, I like to make a spinach and arugula salad. You can add whatever salad fixings you like! For the dressing I like to use olive oil and a nice italian dressing. It is the perfect touch to a healthy meal. From start to finish it took me thirty minutes to complete this recipe.

You could also do this in a crock pot if you wanted. Fry the wings for about 2 minutes in olive oil, throw everything but the salad and the kitchen sink in the crockpot, set it and forget it for 4-6 hours. 4 hours if you have it set to high, 6-8 hours if you have it set on low. I personally love my programmable crockpot due to how easy it is to set. When I come home from work, dinner is cooked and still hot, ready for us to spend some quality time as a family.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
