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 Cowboy Meatball Sliders and the Delicious Pressure Cooker Beef Barbacoa Taquitos!

Happy Sunday TKW Family!  I’m tired. Like did you ever get so tired that you’re lying in bed, that the thought of getting out of bed to go to the bathroom is something you actually contemplate? No for real. Like you know you have to tinkle but your body is like “but this bed is soooooooooooo comfy and you ache ALL OVER. Ignore that urge, it’ll go away”… and you actually think you can ‘fool’ your bladder. You do the leg cross, then you roll over and start to ‘rock’ yourself thinking about everything else BUT the fact that your bladder is going to burst. That was me this morning. Like I legit laid there in bed, rocking myself (actually I think I got in a pretty good core workout), ‘ignoring’ the urge… yeah that lasted about 3.2 seconds. By the time I took 4 steps I knew there was no going back to bed for this girlie.

<deep sigh> Perhaps it’s for the best as I have so much to get done today. 4 new recipes I HAVE to create today and take photos. Oh yeah, Mr.Fantabulous also said that WE need to go to Home Depot and Lowes because WE need a date day. Um… no, I’m breaking up with you then as I don’t want those dates. LOL Actually I do need to go out that way as I need a few things from Sam’s Club to which I did say “Honey, while you’re out there can you just stop in and get the stuff?” The man looked at me like I had 3 heads them simply said “Oh no sweetie, I could never cheat on you and go to your store without you.” LOL such a brat!

So how was your week? It was a ‘Week of Mondays’ for me last week. It just never seemed to end. And just when I thought I was finally ahead of the whole work thing more crap came my way. But I do love what I do so I can’t complain too much ya know? Do you like your job/what do you do for work? I’ve been fortunate as I truly love the work that I do – between my ‘day’ job and TKW. I’ve never worked a job that I hated; a company – not necessarily hate but I was rather happy when I left.

So the Fantabulous In Laws spent most of the weekend here again. It was such a great time as always. Mama Fantabulous made her meat sauce (Mr. Fantabulous likes hers better than mine but loves my Sunday Gravy better than hers – we call it ‘dividing the love’ lol). It’s funny as there are only 2 differences between her recipe and mine is oregano and water. She doesn’t add oregano at all (which is odd to me but whatev) and she adds waaaaaaay more water than I. I like a thicker ‘gravy’ sauce but as long as he enjoys it so be it. I can make both sauces (mine version for me and her version for him).

Can we just have a weekend do-over? I’m beat!

Thanksgiving Appetizers

So the whole notion of ‘appetizers’ cracks me up.  It’s a Pre-Meal… meal.  It’s like you’re prepping for the real meal to come out.  It essentially is generally “a food or drink that stimulates the appetite and is usually served before a meal”. See a pre-meal!  Well with Thanksgiving rapidly approaching, it seems more and more folks serve appetizers before the big meal.  Now this is something new to me as my family never did this.  Then again we didn’t have the extra money for stuff like appetizers plus we wanted to save our appetites for the real meal. LOL

Now since they are a pre-meal, let’s call them by their real name Hors d’oeuvres. Hor d’oeuvres are the first course. If there is an extended period between when guests arrive and when the meal is eaten (for example during a cocktail hour), these might also serve the purpose of sustaining guests during the wait, in the same way that apéritifs are served as a drink before meals. Hors d’oeuvre are sometimes served with no meal afterward. This is the case with many reception and cocktail party events. Hors d’oeuvre may be served at the dinner table as a part of the meal, or they may be served before seating. Hors d’oeuvre prior to a meal are either rotated by waiters or passed. Stationary hors d’oeuvre served at the table may be referred to as “table hors d’oeuvre”. Passed hors d’oeuvre may be referred to as “butler-style” or “butlered” hors d’oeuvre.Thanksgiving2013 Read the rest of this entry »

Sticky Honey BBQ Sauce

I’m a sauce girl through and through. I love to dip stuff in sauces albeit it ranch, Italian gravy, marinara, BBQ Bacon Sauce (god that stuff is truly amazing!), pizza sauce, Alfredo and so forth.  So when Mr. Fantabulous asked me the one day to make honey bbq wings, I knew right away what sauce I wanted. See I have been making this sauce for eons.  Well okay not eons but ever since I discovered Sweet Baby Ray’s.  I love that sauce and since you all know me well enough you know I have to try to make something like that.  Now I still love that sauce but I actually like mine better.  It’s certainly not a copycat recipe but rather just another type of sauce.  It’s sweet with some background tang for excitement.


As I was making this sauce I think I ate about 2 cups worth from tasting, adjusting, re-tasting. By the time it was done I was stuffed! LOL It has the perfect balance of sweet and tangy with that hint of hotness.  The longer it cooks the thicker it gets plus as it cools it thickens.

But the flavor is just incredible!  I’ve used this on baked chicken breasts were it gets all thick and sticky on the chicken, as a wing sauce and even as a pizza sauce.

Ah yeah, we’re talking Lip Smackin’ awesome sauce!
