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…

The Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

A fabulous vanilla cupcake recipe is something everyone needs. EVERY.ONE. Not just bakers. Not just parents that host a lot of kid parties. Everyone.

It was an easy batter to make, baked up beautifully, and most importantly - tasted amazing. Regardless if you have never made vanilla cupcakes and need a recipe to start with, or even if you think you have the best - give this one a shot. You will not be disappointed!

Classic Monkey Bread

For a few years I made monkey bread muffins for Christmas morning, and for some reason I got out of that habit. Then we had kids and I thought I'd get back in to it, but I didn't until recently. But I recently made classic loaf Monkey Bread and realized that it's just better than muffins. It's not like a loaf is any less "complicated" to make, or really tastes different, but there is something easier about it. And I haven't had a single loaf bubble over and cause a mess in my oven! I'm so happy to have brought this back in to our lives. Not that it takes long to put together or bake, but this is the perfect lazy weekend (or Christmas morning) breakfast. I have even started the process in advance before, by cutting the biscuits and measuring the sugar and cinnamon in a bag the night before. After all, the biscuit cutting is the most time consuming part. Wake, assemble, and voila! Do you have a big crowd to feed, or kids that devour sweets? Simply

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
