Get Cookin, Good Lookin!!

Hi there all my Good Lookin followers!!

I hope everyone has had a good week!! I am enjoying my first official day of Spring Break!! Woohoo!!!

Here's some of the deliciousness I cooked up this week:

Monday Night:
Chicken and Shrimp Stir-Fry
 (Served with Near East Whole Wheat couscous)

Brown Butter Chocolate Chip cookies

Skinny Chicken Cordon Bleu
(I used Gina's pictures because my rollups didn't come out quite as pretty as hers! Still Yummy!!!)

Garlic Smashed Broccoli

Chicken Stew
 (I added more celery and carrots than the recipe called for, and mine was a bit runnier, but still equally delicious! I also made this the same night as the Chicken Cordon Bleu but this was my Lunch for Thursday... So yum!!)

Beef & Broccoli
(I served mine over brown rice because I hate white rice)

Check out all the Yummies that Katelyn made this week here

Next week I'll try to remember to take more of my own pictures, but y'all this food was so yummy that I couldn't stop myself from digging right in!!

Happy Friday Y'all!!

I'm Back (Again.. Hopefully for good!) with a new LinkUp!!

I am coming out of the wood work (again) to launch a fun new weekly linkup with my Bestie, Katelyn (A Wife's Life).

What's been going on? What has everybody been up to? Me? Still loving my job!! School is really killing my social life! ;) I was seeing someone fantastic, but as they usually do, he turned out to be more "Yankee Bad Boy Skeezball", than "Romantic Southern Transplant of my dreams".  Out with him, in with the pint of Blue Bell Dutch Chocolate.  I've been drowning my sorrows over him for more time than I'm proud of.. but we're moving on!

Katelyn and Sammie <3
Speaking of ze Bestie, Last week we finally got to meet face to face and spent the best day ever shopping, getting mani's, laughing and stuffing our faces.  What can I say? She gets me!

Anyway, Kate and I came up with the idea for this new linkup because we both are totally guilty of pinning dozens (probably more like hundreds) of recipes, but then when it comes down to it, we just go out to eat or get take out.  Thus the "Get Cookin Good Lookin" weekly link party/challenge has been born.

Here's how it works:
-Grab our button and link up with us every Friday
-Credit the original source and share the recipe in your post. I will be adapting mine some from the original source but still want to give them credit.
-Post pictures of your food.
-Share any helpful tips you can think of!

We are so excited to see what everyone comes up with and make some of your recipes. The first link up starts Friday!
