Double Love SVH#1

Jessica can be described as the ultimate master manipulator and stereotypical popular girl without a heart. As I re-read this book I am reminded of how much these books shape my world view of what high-school was supposed to be all about.
Of course once I finally made it to high-school I realized it wasn’t filled with half the amount of drama that was in this series.

The drama in the first book of the series was better than any real housewives episode. This book was filled with revenge, jealousy, adultery, and even a court battle. I read this in a day and enjoyed every minute of it.

Jessica the superficial twin really tried my nerves with her selfish manipulative behavior. She was really an over the top example of what teens girl should not be like (think Lindsey Lohan).

It was nice to see Elizabeth sort of stick up for herself in the end but she could have done better then just a minor water dunk. Her twin deserved a stiff smack in the face.

Beauty Trick

I recently rediscovered this little tool in the bottom of my make up bag. It is small but easy to use and packs a big lash curling punch. Think curling iron for your eye lashes. I give this 2 thumbs up!!!!



Chicken and Turkey Chili

1lb ground turkey
Bag of assorted mini peppers chopped up
1 large onion
1 pound of chicken tenderloins chopped up
McCormick chili seasoning packs (2)
2tblsp red pepper
1 tblsp garlic salt
Dice cilantro
2 cans organic diced tomato
1 can tomato paste

1. Cook chicken in a skillet
2. Brown and drain ground turkey
3. Combine vegetables, meat, seasonings, and tomato products into crockpot along with 1/2 cup of water
4. Cook for 2-3 hours storing occasionally until vegetables are tender






No Guilt Curry Chicken

I pulled this together before work by using 2tbsp of each spice into a freezer bag with the chicken, marinade, and grill!




Semi paleo breakfast

On most days this the breakfast I prepare for me and the fiancé. It is quick and very easy. Unless I have been working out really hard it keeps me full till lunch. On occasion I will have a morning snack after this breakfast.
Egg whites
Turkey bacon






Teriyaki Salmon

Yummy, Yum, Yum is all I can say about this recipe.  I happened upon it like I do most of our nightly meals(by accident).  And also, like most of the meals I post here this was super easy. 


4 Salmon Filets

1 red onion(chopped)

2 zucchini (sliced)

3/4 cups of teriyaki Sauce

Dash of salt and pepper to taste



I pre-make this and store it in a plastic bag inside our freezer until I am ready to cook it.  You can also make it fresh.  Coat a large non stick pan with Pam.  Turn the burner on medium high and pour in the teriyaki sauce.  Place in the salmon fillets then sprinkle them with the salt and pepper.  Sear the fish for about 4 minutes then pour in your veggies.  Let it cook rotating the ingredients around every 2 minutes or so until the fish is fully cooked and the veggies are tender.

FYI- if you are going to freeze it to cook later you would simply place all the ingredients into a freezer bag and when you are ready to cook it let it thaw out.  Place all the thawed ingredients into a pan that has been coated with Pam.
