Baked Chicken Tenders with Honey Mustard Sauce

Baked Chicken Tenders

 

Chicken tenders bring me back to my childhood. They’re a fun, hand held, dip-able dinner. That really is the best part right? You get to dip them in so many sauces. When I was a kid, I would always try to get one of each sauce to dip my chicken nuggets in. Yes, one sauce cup per nugget/tender. Anyone else out there a sauce enthusiast? Anyway, this is my favorite honey mustard dipping sauce. Its zippy with just the right amount of sweetness.

Gimme Pizza… P-I-Z-Z-A

Yes, that is an Olsen twins reference. Did anyone else grow up wanting to be an Olsen twin? I know it wasn’t just me. Every time I make pizza from scratch, I can’t help but think of that song… and sing it a little, maybe.

The pizza dough takes a little time to rise, but other than that it is a simple straightforward recipe.

Mushroom and Turkey Lettuce Cups

Ahhh, the month of January. Health food month. I kicked off the new year with a bit of a cleanse. It was a 3 day liquid diet filled with smoothies and soup. I would say it really worked for me. Yes, I lost some water weight that comes back when you start to eat normally… I know. However, taking those 3 days to really zone in on what I was eating helped to refocus myself on my fitness goals. I feel the best when I am eating healthy. (Yeah, nothing really groundbreaking about that one, but it is true!)

Since then, I have been cutting back on my heavy carbs in the evening. So at dinner, I have been shying away from things like tortillas, bread, buns, etc. However, I never want to feel deprived. Queue the lettuce wraps. For some reason being able to pick these up and eat them is more satisfying to me then eating them knife and fork style. Anyone else? Try it! Let me know what you think. These are so delicious, pretty, and fun to eat!
