I'm a simple girl in a complex world.

Yummy and Easy

I've made this twice now in less than a week and each time I've made it, I didn't have been enough for leftovers, even though I planned for it. It's simple and requires only five ingredients. I've served it with mac and cheese, broccoli, sweet potatoe and pasta salad. Good luck and happy cooking!

Bonesless Chicken Breast (thawed)
Parsley flakes
Parmasean Cheese (the dry one)
Ritz Crackers
1 stick of margarine (for healthy look, just spray pam or use olive oil).

1. Cut the chicken in half to lower cooking time, then set aside.
2. Preheat oven for 375 degrees.
3. Make a cooking station for the dipping you'll be doing.
4. Crush the ritz crackers, you can do this by placing it in a sturdy zip lock bag and smash with a hammer or bottle. Then pour into a bowl.
5. Pour half a can of the parmasean cheese in a bowl unless you are cooking for more than 7 people.
6. Melt butter in a plate big enough to fit the chicken and set aside (you might need to reheat it up if it get cold). Add the parsley to the butter (use as little or as much as you like).
7. Dip the chicken in butter or spray the chicken
8. Dip it in the ritz cracker crumbs and make sure the chicken is well coated.
9. Dip ritz coated chicken in the parmasean cheese
10. Place it on a greased or sprayed pan and bake for 25 - 35 minutes until chicken is done (compltely white when you cut the thickest part of the breast).

Good luck and enjoy all the compliments you'll receive! :0)


The Mr. is already fast asleep and all I want to do is crawl into the bed with him and tell him how wonderful he is and how much I appreciate him even if I don't always act that way.

I saw "Why did I get Married 2" this weekend and it made me think about why I got married. I got married for selfish reasons. I had found a man with intergrity, loved God, loved me and the six pack didn't hurt either! A man that met 8 of my top 10 qualities I looked for in husband. I would have been stupid to turn him down. Does he has his flaws yes, but trust me the good outweighs the bad. I married him because I knew he would love, cherish, lead ... but not once did I think let me marry this guy because of all the wonderful things I could do for him.

I think most of us are this way and in my case, I came in like a leach just wanting to feed but God has graciously taught me that my marriage is not a one way street. He has given me this man to love, cherish, follow...

And as long as I shall live, I vow to do those things especially when I don't feel like it!

Happy Marriage!

By the way, if you get the chance go see the movie or at least rent it when it comes you. You will def learn something from it and excercise your abs will all the laughing you'll be doing!

Time flies

This time last year I was planning a wedding, my wedding actually! April 6, 2009 was the exact date the Mr. asked me to spend the rest of my life as his wife! Exactly a year to that date, I gave him an answer to the question "will you be my girlfriend?"

I love that MAN and I hope to love him more tomorrow!

Oh Spring

Waking up is more lively
Going to bed is more enjoyable
I especially love the beautiful melodies the birds use to wake me up
If you want great music, listen to the birds at 5am
The songs are like a love song from God to me

Going to work is more pleasant when I have a bold color skirt and my toes are out
From I-275 to I-75, the trees wave to me with their bold luscious green leaves
The sun, OH the sun – How beautiful you are! All of this, created so I can see the Glory of God.

Spring brings the real me out!


We made it back in one piece and boy was it a GREAT trip!!! I'll have more post with different aspects of the trip along with lots of pictures.

The highlights of the trip:

1. Suya (Grilled beef, ram, or chicken with a special spice).
2. Old school romance - The type you get with partial electricity, no computer and no work the next day ;O)
3. Seeing genuwine smiles
4. Walking almost 2 miles everyday.
5. $12 AMAZING mani/pedicure - yes both for only $12.
6. Listening to my maternal grandmother tell her life story as my husband recorded and asked questions.
7. Eating fresh delicous mangoes.
8. Being so stress free that fighting with your spouse seems meaningless.
9. Pricing things in the markets aka playing the bargaining game with merchants.
10. Introducing my husband to my family and meeting his aunts and uncles.

more to come...HAPPY TRAVELS
