A hiccup

I know it’s been a while…it’s a long story but I lost about 2 years of my past blog content >.< which actually wasn’t much but recently I posted some travel logs that I’m so sad to have lost! I’ll have to repost them later.

Quick update since the last post on here is from Sept 2016 when I was still living in San Francisco:

I’m now in Dallas where the heat is hot and the pool days are looooong.It’s the first I’ve lived out of Cali (except college) and the culture is def different out here, but the people ares so nice. I misss the coast dearly, but I will say being in the center of the country means I can get to east or west coasts in under 3 hours, which I’m totally okay with. I’m a new-ish IVF mama and plan on having some baby/pregnancy content on here soon. Okay, you’re all caught up now ;)

I’m also working on adding some new vlog content as well as some posts from friends about life + such, so stay tuned…I’m excited to get the create blog juices flowing again! 

XO.

I know for sure that what we dwell on is who we become.

Easy Roasted Chicken & Veggies

IMG_0558

The one intimidating word I left out of the title was spatchcocked. Yes. This chicken is spatchcocked and it tastes so good. I know what you’re thinking. WTH does spatchcocked mean? It sounds like a verb used to describe a murder scene, which technically I guess it could, but that would be very morbid. Spatchcocked refers to how a chicken is prepared before it is roasted or barbecued. More specifically, the backbone is cut or removed and it is laid open, like a butterfly. This allows for a shorter cook time with just as much moist tenderness for the chicken and even more for the vegetables that lie below! Here’s a quick video of how to cut the backbone (ignore the skewer part).
