I’m baaacckk! Wow, it’s been way too long, I’m hoping you’re all doing well! OK, so here’s the thing…a couple of years ago I went on a local weight loss program and lost 40 pounds very quickly and yep, you guessed it – I’ve gained most of it back. Yikes, how did that happen??!! It’s incredibly disappointing, but, onward and upward, right?!! Enter, Lose It!

Mason Jar Risotto Mix

The season of Thanksgiving leading up to Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love our American Thanksgiving holiday and how it reminds us to be thankful. And Christmas…well, I just love everything about it. It’s of course fun to give and receive gifts, but, I love the spirit of the holiday! The beautiful sparkly decorations, and the specific time of year dedicated to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Plus, it’s finally cooler here in south Texas for a couple of days! 😉 So, on the subject of gift-giving, and being the chef wanna-be that I am, I’m making and giving Mason Jar Risotto Mix to give as gifts to some lucky recipients on my list this year!

Spicy Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Spicy Chicken Lettuce Wraps | Cherry Blossom Kitchen

Hectic days, call for easy, tasty meals! Today was one of those ‘Murphy’s Law’ kind of days, everything that could go wrong seemingly did. Endless traffic and lines that make me late are the bane of my existence since I’m always on a tight schedule, driving from one Real Estate photo shoot to the next. Of course, lucky me…I got behind THE slowest vehicle on the planet at one point with no way to get around him. He needs to take his ‘Sunday drives’ on a Sunday, already! OK, end rant. :) So, it’s the middle of October, but, we’re still experiencing summer temps here in the afternoon, so, I won’t be making my favorite fall soups just yet, but, these quick and easy spicy chicken lettuce wraps are stress free to make on days like this and they’re loaded with flavor (no exaggeration!) Perfect to whip up after a day like today. If yours was like mine, you need to make them too! And here’s a bonus, they’re low carb and gluten free, so, load up those lettuce leaves!!

See that cute little zucchini noodle bow with a knot in the photo above of my Dijon Zucchini Noodle with Ground Turkey and Mushrooms recipe? I didn’t take a ‘zoodle’ strand and tie it, honest!! I must have done some pretty fancy stirring!  I have to say, I did a double-take when I saw it! What are the chances of that ever happening again??!!

Butternut Squash Riced Risotto | Cherry Blossom Kitchen

I’ve been longing for a luscious risotto, but, didn’t want the carbs (that go straight to my hips) from rice, so, I used my food processor to turn the butternut squash into rice-like bits. In seconds, you’ll replace the high-carb rice to create this easy and delicious Butternut Squash ‘Riced’ Risotto with Peas and Parmesan!
