I can't believe that Brandon CUT his hair!! I have never seen him with short hair. What a shock. This is a great move in our marriage that we are trying for the other person. I am excited that he has made a step in a positive direction. I haven't been cooking lately due to Brooklyn not being home and landon eating pretty much anything but I want to start cooking again. I need some new cookbooks. I think that is what I will do this weekend.

Here are some updated pictures of everyone with new haircuts!

So long

So it has been over a year since I have been on. I really miss getting on and updating all the wonderful things we do. I plan on getting on later and updating a bunch of pictures but for now, I have an awesome reciepe that I cooked last night.

It was all gone before I could get a picture :)

Crunchy Honey Chicken

serves 2+

1 pound thinly sliced, boneless, skinless chicken breasts

2 egg whites

1/3 cup cornstarch (or flour – for dredging)

1 cup broccoli florets

1/2 red pepper, thinly sliced

a handful of sugar snap peas (about 3/4 cup)

1 clove garlic, minced

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1/4 cup honey

salt and pepper to taste

Prepare and slice all veggies – feel free to add whatever you would like. In 2 separate bowls, add the egg whites (lightly beaten) and the cornstarch or flour. (The cornstarch will yield a “crispier” chicken). Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add veggies with a sprinkle of salt and pepper and saute for about 5 minutes, until softened. Add in soy sauce and garlic and stir so veggies are coated, about 60 seconds. Remove from skillet and set aside in a bowl.

Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces and season with salt and pepper. Heat the same skillet (or you can use a different one, I just use the same to make it easier) over medium-high heat and add remaining olive oil. Dip chicken pieces in egg whites and then lightly dredge in cornstarch. Add to the skillet and let brown for 2-3 minutes, then flip. Continue with remaining chicken pieces, and do so in batches if needed.

Once chicken is cooked, add veggies back in the skillet. Add honey and thoroughly mix to combine. Taste and season with salt, pepper, additional honey or soy sauce. Serve with rice.
