For quite a while now, I’ve been wanting to make cake pops. I learned about these delicious little treats a while back through Sweet E’s Bake Shop. As you may remember, I did an interview with the owner here. I was so excited to see that they have started a video series and their very first video explains how to make this sweet snack. I instantly ran out of my apartment, bought the necessary supplies, and started making my very own cake pops.
Freshly painted nails are one of the best feelings. I’m borderline obsessed with having my nails done. I know I’m not alone when I say chipped nails just don’t fly. For all you New Yorkers reading, I am a tad jealous that essie opened its first ever nail salon in your city (and down the street from where I used to live). I’m dying to check this place out! It seems like a little piece of heaven. Based on pictures I’ve seen (and rumblings I’ve heard) it’s beautiful and screams ‘essie.’ What could be better? In honor of this exciting opening, I’ve compiled eight of my all time favorite essie colors for summer. I urge you to try one of these bright, fun shades during this very short, yet amazing, season.
Last night I decided to try a spin on a classic: the chicken sandwich. I have a weird thing about olives. I absolutely love the taste of them, as long as they aren’t in their natural form. I strongly dislike biting into an olive, but I love when they are chopped up or turned into a tapenade. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to make a chicken dish with olives. I decided to try it as a sandwich. It was delicious and left my taste tester (i.e. – boyfriend) wanting more. And, lucky for him, there are leftovers.
Chicken Breast (boneless/skinless)
Medium Cheddar Cheese
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Wash chicken breast and lay in a cooking pan.
Pour a little bit of olive oil on top and put chicken into the oven.
Put as many olives as you wish into a food processor and pulse until all chopped up.
Add a handful of bread crumbs into the food processor and pulse a few more times.
Take chicken out after 10-15 minutes and spread your olive ‘sauce’ on top.
Put chicken back into the oven and cook through (right before it’s done, take out and sprinkle shredded cheese on top and put back in until it’s done).
Once chicken is cooked, take out and cut up into small pieces.
Turn it into a sandwich (add parsley for color on top and tomatoes all around it).
