Sweet. Savory. Sinful.
Happy Saturday! I hope you had a fabulous week and are ready to enjoy some relaxing down time. We have some car shopping planned for today, and tomorrow I have a baby shower for an old friend. It’s been so long since I’ve been to a shower, I don’t know what to do with myself! The weather should be pretty nice here, so I might be able to bust out a cute spring dress! As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week as well as some bookmarked recipes from other blogs.

Blueberry Muffins Recipe Muffins are a dangerous thing in my kitchen. I don’t make them all too often because when I do, I can’t stop eating them. For breakfast, for snacks, pretty much any time I walk past the kitchen and spy the container.

Foodbuzz 24, 24, 24: Chinese Buffet at Home It is no secret that I have an obsession with Chinese cuisine. The place that started it all was a local Chinese buffet here in Michigan. After frequent visits to the buffet over the years, I finally decided to take a stab at cooking my own Chinese dishes at home. The majority of the dishes were delicious and I began cooking different Chinese meals every week, but I had always wanted more variety just like the buffet. I had always wondered, “what if I could create a Chinese buffet at home?” I have wanted to do this for along time so I was very excited when I was chosen to be part of the 24,24,24 event presented by Foodbuzz.

I decided to get brave and use the boneless skinless chicken thighs, and I wasn’t disappointed.
