Food Friday: Buffalo “Chicken” Salad!

As I mentioned earlier this week I want to integrate some more content into my blog. The main focus will remain reviewing books and pairing recipes mentioned in those books with my reviews. However (again) as I said, I have so many original recipes that I've wanted to share with y'all but they've not coincided with any of my books so they just sit in my recipe book, un-shared. Granted, even when I explore a new recipe or style of food for my blog I make it a few times, making changes that fit my households pallets and to give it a little *original* flare. However, that's not really the same as a recipe I've been making and working on for months or years. So here I am, with my first official Food Friday post! Today's recipes is one of my husbands all time favorites and was originally inspired during our time doing Whole30 back in January.

Review + Recipe: The Mother-In-Law by Sally Hepworth + Chicken Parm Recipe!

Happy Publication Day to Sally Hepworth's The Mother-In-Law!! This was a super fun read that I had the pleasure of discussing with the wonderful members of the Traveling Sisters group on Goodreads. Go check out their review if you haven't already because it's amazing! In other news, my husbands future boss has scheduled us to go out to New Mexico in just under three weeks! It's all getting real and it's very exciting and nerve racking at the same time! Finding a house in a state you don't live in is turning out to be much more difficult than I previously anticipated. Anywho, time for my favorite line: Welcome back to the table readers! Today with my review I'll be giving y'all a lightened up chicken Parmesan recipe that's great for when you want to #treatyoself so stay tuned after the review!
