Picky Eater Grilled Chicken Wrap

I always want to order wraps when I go out to lunch but I am so picky that I'd feel like I'm high maintenance by asking for xx wrap, hold the dressing, salsa, etc. so I never order them. I don't know what's kept me from making them on my own before. This was so easy and perfect for a quick, simple dinner. I do think my tortilla's were on their last leg though because they were a little dry and therefore didn't wrap too well. Taste wise it was perfectly fine though!

As I mentioned, I'm picky, so this is just the meat and potatoes (well, rice in this case) of a wrap. It can obviously be tweaked however desired.


Ingredients (for 2 wraps and a nice sized "burrito bowl" lunch)
- 1 cup brown rice, cooked
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1-2 BS chicken breasts, depending on size
- ¼ c. olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, pressed
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- S&P to taste
- 3-4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped (I planned on including in the meal but I totally forgot this until the next morning when I went in the meat drawer and saw the bacon in there!)
- ½ cup Mexican blend shredded cheese (or favorite cheese)
- 1 cup shredded lettuce (favorite blend – I use Romaine and Iceberg)
- 2 tortillas (Used Honey Wheat)

Directions
- Marinate chicken, pounded thin, in Olive Oil, Garlic, Oregano, Onion Powder, Red Pepper and S&P for 1-3 hours
- Grilled chicken over medium heat until center reaches 165 internally (about 5 minutes per side)
- Take chicken off grill and let rest while warming the tortillas
- Reduce grill temperature and warm tortillas over low heat for a few moments
- Chop chicken and place in bowl
- Add rice, bacon, cheese and lettuce to chicken and lightly mix
- Fill the center of each tortilla with 1/3 chicken mixture. Fold the 2 sides of the tortilla over the filling so that the sides overlap. Roll the tortilla from bottom to top and cut in half diagonally

** You can easily add your favorite salad dressing, salsa, mayo, etc. to the mixture however I don’t do dressings…

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my!

But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?  Check!  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do!  Pumpkin?  Well of course!  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try!

One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix them, ba…

Exclusive Pumping - why I did it twice, and some tips & tricks

This is a story I've been wanting to share for several years, in fact one of the reasons I decided to make the switch to more of a life blog versus a food blog. So bear with me here!

I have two children. I tried breastfeeding both of them, and was unsuccessful with both, for different reasons. One wouldn't latch. One my supply was too fast and plentiful. I tried a few things because I really really wanted to breastfeed, but it was stressing me out, so I looked in to other options, which is where I learned about exclusive pumping. 

 What is exclusive pumping (or EP)? It's when a mother expresses her milk to feed her child, rather than feeding "straight from the source". Prior to having Tyler, I knew very little about pumping, but I knew that since I planned to breastfeed and planned to work after maternity leave, I would need a pump. But that was about it. I remember the weekend before he was born sitting on my bed playing with the pump and thinking the manual was…

Nutella Cannoli

Nutella is something that I love, but honestly don't really eat or bake with that often, always regretting that fact each time I eat something with Nutella. Well, I am vowing to change my ways - starting with these Cannolis!  They're definitely not a traditional cannoli as the combination of cream cheese and whipped cream make them more like a cheesecake filling, or even mousse, but the cannoli shell makes them easy to grab and eat.  No fork required - my kind of dessert!


Usually I prefer to make mini cannolis because sometimes full ones are just too rich for me, however any recipe could easily be adapted to a regular cannoli shell size (or mini size if the case may be).  The combination of the cream cheese, whipped cream and Nutella definitely made these a rich bite-size dessert, that I think may become one of my go-to recipes when I need to make something quick and impressive.
