My First Recipe Exchange-Light and Spicy!!!!!


Almost complete

All together...Yummy!

Since I have been trying to increase my cooking repertoire, I decided I would take part in Pretty Mommy's recipe exchange(thanks for hosting and getting me in the kitchen, Michelle)! I really wanted to try out a chicken Marsala recipe I found at Pearls and Green Tea and I must say it was quite a hit!!! I made a few adaptations to the original recipe since I couldn't find a bottle of Marsala(try shopping with a busy 2-year old and then you will understand why by search was short), I substituted with a cooking white wine(the light) and added a little red pepper flakes(the spice) for spice and the rest was "belly" history...I hope you enjoy too!

Chicken Marsala Pasta w/ Sundried Tomatoes
What You Need:
- 2 lbs of mushrooms (cremini or portabella)
- 1/2 - 3/4 cup of chopped sun-dried tomatoes
-1 large onion chopped
- 1 bottle of marsala wine or 1/2 cup of white wine for cooking
- 1 pint of heavy whipping cream
- 3 tablespoons of butter
- 1lb of chicken breast
- 2 tablespoons of flour
-italian seasoning about 1 teaspoon
-1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
-1 pack of shredded parmesan (about 1 1/4 cup)
-1 box of penne pasta
-4-5 cloves of garlic( the more the better)

Putting it all together:
1) boil water and add in pasta
2) cube chicken and coat with salt, pepper, seasoning and flour.

3) sautee chicken in a large pot with butter or olive oil.

4) add onions and mushrooms.
5) add the rest of the butter, cream, parmesan and minced garlic....stir until the cheese is melted....add in salt and red pepper flakes and marsala.....taste the sauce and add salt and pepper accordingly
7) stir everything and add in the pasta

Live Long and Eat Well!!!!!

A Tribe of Your Own!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Tribe Called Neck

What's hot in prints for this Spring/Summer is most definitely all things Tribal inspired! I was riding in to work this morning, pumping my Tribe Called Quest Midnight Marauders and thinking how awesome they were and how sad it was when they split. Well, tribes are meant to stay together and be strong, so how about starting one of your own...on your Neck, that is! Tribal Necklaces are the accessory you need to get your S/S wardrobe in high gear! I love the designs and affordability from House of Harlow and even Banana Republic has great pieces that represents all things tribal!! These pieces are meant to stand alone and be the center, so make sure you keep the ensemble simple and let the Tribal piece do All the talking!!!

Spotlight On: My BlogSpiration!!!!

Since blogging has become the latest art form and outlet, journaling whatever may be on your mind in a sense, I have totally jumped right on board! I thought it was high time to do a little blog "roll-call" and I've decided to share a few of my favorite blogs with YOU!! I'm so inspired by these blogs and really, all of the fabulous blogs I have listed in My Fav's, but these, lucky 7 are high priority on my list for daily check in!!! So, without further adieu, here you go...
First up: Pretty Mommy I promised to share more about this amazing blog, here. I discovered Pretty Mommy by chance, which is how I stumble across most of these little works of art. But I totally fell in love with this blog, because the author, like me is a fashion-forward mommy-which is always FABULOUSLY inspiring! She is in the midst of having baby #2 and I have no doubt that she will continue in her tradition of fashion, trends, and lifestyle! And Michelle even has an online boutique-now how's that for a working mom!!!! Love it!

2. Effortless Anthropologie If you are like me and love all things Anthro, then Roxy has just what you need. She is a real girl, with real curves and she works some of the most fabulous finds from Anthro. In addition, she highlights store openings, new items, and has a weekly sale update, courtesy to a slew of other Anthro followers! It's a must see!

3. Pearls and Green Tea Another fashion-forward mommy strikes again...Fashion, Food and Decor all wrapped up in one!

4. Vanessa Jackman Think Satorialist, but all feminine. Great everyday people, captured in the most fashionable way.

5. District Chic  A wonderful, local, fashionista, does fashion in the Nation's capital--and she rocks it!

6. This Free Bird I discovered this California girl while perusing Pearls and Green Tea and I'm so happy I did! Love the simplicity of this blog and the frequent shots at the beach are always a warm, reminder of home.

7. C'est La Vie I'm so proud of my sister, Jiggy, stepping out and starting this blog! She is one of the most fashion forward people I know and truly an inspiration! This is one to add to your fav's!!

Perhaps, you will be inspired to start a blog, too... In the meantime, Happy Bloggin'!!!!!! 
p.s. Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week is in full progress! Be inspired!
