Europe Day 1: The Colosseum & Rome! #peopletopeople #travel #europe @peopletopeopleambassadors
This summer, you’re probably planning on grilling out with the family and you intend to bring the usual picnic staples: hamburgers, hot dogs, and BBQ chicken. Instead of just a BBQ chicken with regular old bottled BBQ sauce, change things up with Jamaican jerk chicken. If you love spicy food, you’ll love these chicken thighs marinated in a hot spice mixture flavored with habaneros peppers, allspice, and other spices. Habanero peppers are much hotter than your average jalepeno, but don’t be too shy with them or substitute for a different milder pepper because they have a great smokey flavor and aroma that’s key to this dish.
“Turn the music up louder!” I hear the sweet little voice of my daughter say as I turn a corner. I think to myself, that the music is definitely loud enough. Am I becoming my own parents? Can’t be…so I comply with the request. If anything it drowns out the off key singing from the backseat to the song that I am surprised passes as music these days. I guess it does have a pretty good beat. I look in my rear view mirror and catch a glance at my daughter who is singing her heart out to whomever boy this song might be about. She almost has me convinced that her heart is broken, and she would do anything to have him come back. “She is really growing up too fast” I murmur under my breath. I had no idea my daughter knew so many dance moves, while strapped into a car seat. She has enough style to make it as a pop star, that’s for sure.

I had made a lot of BBQ chicken and a huge pot of braised collard greens cooked in chicken stock, vinegar, and sugar and had way more left over than I anticipated. I hate wasting leftovers, but I don’t want to just eat the same meals over again until it’s all gone. I turned to my favorite solution for repurposing leftovers: pizza. How can you say no to anything on a crispy crust topped with melted cheese? This recipe would also be great to use up leftover pork chops or ribs, or any other braised greens such as kale.

On a normal day, it can get pretty hot in Texas. During the summer months, it can get unbearably hot in Texas. If there’s one thing that people in Texas know how to do, it’s find creative ways to beat the heat.
As parents, we want both safety and usability … a combination currently unavailable in outlet protection. We want and need safer and easier alternatives to use throughout our homes.
Each month until December, Modern Day Moms will be featuring an easy-to-make healthy recipe using ingredients from my “Cantry“. What is a Cantry? Well, I’m sure we all have it. It’s the place you store all your canned goods. We actually have a ‘lazy susan’ cubby in our kitchen which we use as our Cantry. A well-stocked Cantry helps you save time and get a healthy, flavorful and home-cooked meal on the table, more often. It’s homemade made easy.
