Get out of that same ol’ recipe rut and try one of these delicious and easy recipes this week! This week I highly recommend making the Sriracha Honey Buttered Crispy Baked Oven Fried Wings and the Skinny Baked Crispy Crunchy Fish Sticks!
Happy Sunday TKW Family! Wow, December already? Man time sure does fly and yet it feels like I’ve accomplished squat. I know it’s all an illusion and in my head but it seems as the older I get the faster time goes. Is that the same with you? For me/for us our time is consumed by this house and remodeling it. I’ll tell you what guys I will never EVER take on a home remodel job on our own. Maybe if it’s a normal sized room or project but doing 4,000 sqft on our own (and that’s not including the kitchen or the 4 bedrooms) is out of the question. Maybe if I was in my 20’s but now that I’m in my 40’s, hell no. How Chip and Joanna do this for a living is beyond me. But then again they do have a whole crew and we have well, us.
The sad part is, we’re doing all of this work just to put the house on the market. The house wasn’t bad at all but it was dated and needed a facelift. I’ll tell you what, whomever buys this house will have one fantabulously awesome house. If only this house was located closer to my work we’d stay but the commute, even though I work from home the majority of the time, when I do go into the office is wretched. So the past what, 10 days or so I had off work. I didn’t do too much TKW but rather spent my time working on this house.
Are you all done with your holiday shopping? I haven’t even started. It’s funny as Mr. Fantabulous is a big kid when it comes to Christmas. He tells me one day “No honey, don’t get me anything; we’re spending a lot on the house.” to “oh honey, I’d love to have this, this and this! Oh and this too!” lol Ah my manchild. LOL I love how giddy he gets around the holidays and gets into it. When we’re working on the downstairs he always has on Christmas music and plans our evenings around what holiday cartoon is on.
What else? Friday he was feeling a tad better so we went over to hangout with some of our best friends at their house. It’s so nice to be at that age where you don’t need to go out to a bar or club to have a good time. That all you need is your comfy clothes, great friends and a night at their house having great food, games and laughing til you almost pee your pants. I’m so truly blessed to have those guys in my life. 3 of them I’ve known since grade school and all throughout band. And what I absolutely love is that they love Mr. Fantabulous equally as much. But then, he is fantabulous after all. lol
So what else? Last week on Instagram I wasn’t terribly active as I was so swamped in the house but I did have a few moments of deliciousness posted!
I had some leftover turkey and stuffing and turned them into seriously one of my FAVORITE leftovers! Just 4 ingredients – bacon, egg, stuffing and turkey with 2 sauces. Oh be still my heart! Recipe coming soon!
Seriously these are freaking insane! Just leftover stuffing, chopped turkey, an egg and bacon! These Bacon Wrapped Thanksgiving Gobbler bites with 2 sauces – Cranberry and Bacon Cream sauce are the best thing to come out of Thanksgiving! . This is one of my top 5 FAVORITE ways to revamp Thanksgiving leftovers!!! . #leftovers #bacon #baconwrapped #gobblerbites #stuffing #thekitchenwhisperer #fwx #foodnetwork #instaeat #spoonfeed #appetizers #omg #legit #stuffingbites #imagenius
Then there were this… We finally are at a point where we can go shopping for the rooms downstairs. We both fell in love with these chairs, pillows and table for the study. All that we need in there are some blind bookshelves and few accept pieces and that room is done.
In serious love with how my study is turning out! Still need a few more accent pieces for the room. Next step, build a black bookcase for the one wall for all of my cookbooks! .

This chair… I’m so in love with it! *yes I know the tag is showing* I wasn’t sure if we’d like it until we got it in place.
With that, have one fantabulously amazing week!
