Thursday, January 31


Hi everyone...just checking in to reassure you that I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I think. I've been outrageously busy these past two weeks with the new in leaving home and not coming back for 14 hours busy. So bear with me, I'll do my best to pick back up in the next week! It also hasn't helped that it's been freezing cold and thus all I want to wear is sweatpants...

Hope everyone is having a good week so far, and don't catch that nasty flu that's going around!

Apple Cider Pancakes

I saw apple cider pancakes on Pinterest the other day and decided to make some of my own! I chose to use mainly whole wheat flour and some flaxseed and cornmeal to make them more healthy and rich in flavor and texture.

Apple Cider Pancakes
3/4 cup whole wehat
1/4 cup white
1/4 cup flax
1/4 cornmeal
1/2 cup water
1 cup apple cider
1/4 cup milk
1/4 oil
2 tsp baking powder
1 egg

Just mix together the dry ingredients, and the wet ingredients. Then mix together until fully combined. You could even add some diced apples if you wanted! I'd suggest browning them a bit in a skillet first.

Tribal Prep?

 Top: Target, thrifted ($3.50)
Blazer: Target, thrifted ($4)
Jeans: TJ Maxx ($7)
Boots: Adi Designs, via ($20)

Pardon the wet hair, this is what happens when you're on a super tight schedule and don't have time to deal with the hairdryer. Not to mention it was raining out it would've gotten wet again anyway. At least that's what I'm going to tell myself! 

Both the blazer and the top are recent finds from Goodwill. I'm quite happy with both of them!

Lime Avocado Chicken Enchiladas

I made these for dinner tonight and they were absolutely incredible. If you like Mexican food, you've got to try this out. They were inspired by this recipe, but I made quite a few alterations. 

Lime Avocado Chicken Enchiladas
  • 6 medium flour tortillas
  • Rotisserie chicken or 3 whole chicken breasts, shredded
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup salsa verde
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  •  2 avocados
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup monterey jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar, shredded
Shred cooked rotisserie chicken or approximately 3 chicken breasts. Cook diced onions in frying pan until lightly browned. Combine all bold ingredients in a blender until smooth. Combine onions, half of the cheese, and chicken, and add half of the blender mixture. Separate into 6 servings and roll up into tortillas inside of a prepared non-stick pan. Pour remaining blender mixture over the rolled enchiladas and top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes. 

I also put mango-peach salsa on top, which was an amazing addition to the flavor. This is easily one of  my new favorite dishes.

Skirt: Vera by Vera Wang, given (free)
 Leggings: free
Scarf: F21 ($3)
Jacket: Target ($24)
Boots: Bandolino ($98)

Finally splurged on a good pair of boots. I had ordered a pair from Gilt last month, only to have received something in the mail that looked nothing like what I saw online. So I gave it up until I tried again over the holidays, and found these on Amazon for $98. Hopefully they'll last! They're a nice cognac leather and I actually like the design, no excessive buckles or zippers--just a good classic riding boot. Just what I was looking for. :)
