At Home Steak Hibachi with Vegetables

Whenever there is a special occasion to be celebrated, nine times out of ten, I will say I want Fusion.  Fusion is a hibachi style Japanese steak house in my town and I LOVE it.  The thing about Fusion is you're not getting out of there for less that $30-$40 a plate, depending on what you order.  So when the craving hits me for great hibachi, but my wallet says no, I just whip up my At Home Steak Hibachi with Vegetables.


This vibrant and healthy dish tastes EXACTLY like the stuff from my favorite Japanese steak house, but is a fraction of the cost!  I can't wait to share it with you so...

Rainy Day White Bean Sausage and Kale Soup Recipe

Hey y'all!  I know it's been a bit since I last posted, but I've been trying to get some spring cleaning done as well as celebrating the birth of my brand new nephew Gage Allen Randall!  So as you can imagine, it's been a little busy around here, but I'm back, and I have a DELICIOUS new recipe for you, my Rainy Day White Bean Sausage and Kale Soup!

The finished bowl of soup, in a white bowl, with the title above.

Spring has finally sprung around here, and with that comes lots and lots of rain.  It's funny because with the warmer temperatures I'm wanting fresher foods, but with all the rain, I just want a big bowl of soup to warm me up.  That's why this Rainy Day White Bean Sausage and Kale Soup is perfect.  Packed full of healthy components, but still warm and hearty!  I can't wait to share it with you so let's get started!

Perfect Chicken Cordon Bleu

Last Monday was National Chicken Cordon Bleu Day, and though I wanted to have my recipe posted for you, life didn't work out for me.   However, I did make my Chicken Cordon Bleu that night, and I can't wait to share it with you now!


I feel like when you hear "Chicken Cordon Bleu" there is a fear that it's going to be a difficult and fussy dish.  That just isn't the case.  In fact, it couldn't be more simple.  You're about to blow everyone away with this dish so...

Tomee the Cat and my Litter Box Hack

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #yougottabekittenme #CollectiveBias




Growing up, I think it's safe to say that my brother was the one child in my family who was a little more..."enthusiastic" than the rest of us.  And let's be honest, every family has that one child that leaves a special imprint on your heart.  Our family is no different.  


Enter Tomee the Cat.  She is my second fur baby, my first girl, and she is a character!  From the moment we met, I knew she was not going to be your typical cat.  My husband and I had gone to the Humane Society to "just look."  I was eyeing this beautiful Persian when all of the sudden something grabbed my hair from above.  Pretty much the rest is history!  She came home with us, and has been a ball of personality ever since!  

My Tomee girl is very precious to me, and because of that I want her to have the best of everything, including her litter.  That's why I use Fresh Step Total Control with the Power of Febreze!

Candied Bacon BLT with Sriracha Mayo

I think it's safe to say at this point y'all know I love cooking for my family, but sometimes I don't want to spend hours doing it.  Some nights I just don't want a lot of dishes.  Some nights I just don't want a lot of fuss.  It's on evenings like this that nothing beats a delicious BLT.  However, I am The Kitchen Wife, and I DO have a reputation to uphold lol, so if I'm going to do a BLT for dinner I'm going to take it to the next level!  Enter my Candied Bacon BLT with Sriracha Mayo.  

The finished candied bacon blt, on a plate, with fries.

There's nothing quite like it, and they're so good, a local restaurant even featured them as their weekly special.  The best part, these Candied Bacon BLT's with Sriracha Mayo couldn't be easier to make.  I'm so excited to share this one with you so let's get started!

Southern Style Ham Salad Recipe

I don't know if your family is anything like mine, but we always have ham at Easter dinner.  I'm not exactly sure why because not all of us like it all that much.  There is always a beef option as well. The next thing I know my mom is sending all of this leftover ham home with me, and I am like "What am I supposed to do with this!?!"  Fortunately my husband shared with me his recipe for Deviled Ham Salad which is also know as Southern Style Ham Salad.  


 So this year instead of the usual suspects like my Scalloped Potatoes with Ham, I decided to give Southern Style Ham Salad a try.   It's perfect on sandwiches, crackers, so many thing.  The best part, you have everything you need for it in your fridge! I can't wait to share this recipe for you, so...
