A few days ago I decided to experiment with this Pinterest recipe that I had been eyeing for quite some time.
I took the recipe from Cafe Delites Blog and tweaked it.
Overall it was quick and simple and a total winner!
- Four chicken breast
- Salt & Pepper
- 2 Tablespoons of Italian seasoning
- 1 cup of Spinach & Artichoke dip
- Olive oil
- Toothpicks (Optional)
Drizzle some olive oil in a skillet and let it heat up on a low fire while you cut slits in your chicken breast creating a pocket. (Do not cut all the way through.)
Season with salt & pepper and Italian seasoning.
Fill in the pockets with 1 – 2 tablespoons of spinach & artichoke dip and smooth evenly throughout the slit. Seal and secure with a few toothpicks.
Place chicken breast in the skillet and brown on both sides.
Once the chicken is fully cooked on both sides, remove them from the skillet and let cool.
Be sure to remove the toothpicks before serving!
Quick, simple, and delicious!

Since I have started dating, I have been trying to make everyday occasions just a little bit more memorable.
While I was on Pinterest I came across a pin that led me to The Dating Divas blog. I noticed all the cute crafts and Date Night ideas they had so I figured I would make my own basket too and surprise my boyfriend.
I printed the printables ahead of time to plan out my set up.
Once I figured out what I wanted to keep and what I didn’t need, I went to my local dollar store for candy and I even found boxed candy like they sell at theaters. I also found a red platter to hold the Concessions.
I didn’t spend a fortune on the candy and I went to Central Market for bottled Dr. Pepper so I could place the Soda Pop labels on them. (Dr. Pepper is Javier’s favorite beverage.)
I mentioned to Javier a few weeks before that we should have a movie night and of course he agreed.
I set up my small basket and handed him the Ticket that Admits Two.
I think it’s safe to say he enjoyed it and even though we were just getting together to watch movies, the printables made it that much more cuter.
Thanks to The Dating Divas, you can find those same printables here.
This past weekend I had some family visiting from out of town and I had them stay in my little home which I converted into a Bed & Breakfast. (I’ve always wanted to be an owner of a B&B so this is as close as I’ll get.)
As soon as I found out they were coming, I quickly jumped on Pinterest to get some tips regarding overnight house guest.
From fresh linens and towels, to fresh flowers on the nightstand, and even making a welcome basket for my guest, I got all my tips from the following blogs:
My cousin and her husband loved everything!
Thank you Pinterest!
