10 Delicious Chicken Recipes

Whether you’re just getting started in the kitchen or you’ve been cooking for several years now, I think we can all agree that one of the greatest canvases for experimenting with flavors is the good ol’ fashioned chicken.

If you get your chicken from a local farm or market, a little salt and pepper is really all you need to season your meat. However, not all of us have that luxury…at least not at all times of the year…so we’re stuck with buying flavorless bland chicken that begs to be seasoned, brined, and fried. But not all hope is lost!

If you’re on the hunt for recipes to help liven up your dinner line-up, here are 10 of my favorite chicken recipes. Packed with flavor, texture, and amazing color, these easy dinner recipes are great for weeknight meals for two, four, or ten!

10 of My Favorite Felt Flowers

I am notorious for killing flowers. I don’t know what it is, I water them, I love them, I talk to them…but for some reason, I just can’t keep them alive. This is why I have succulents literally taking over my apartment…

But fake flowers…now that I can get behind! I love the look of flowers in a room, and fake flowers are a great solution for us who are cursed with not-so-green thumbs.

Fake flowers can be made out of several materials, but I happen to love the look of felt flowers. Felt comes in a wide assortment of colors and textures, so it’s easy to create an arrangement that is both beautiful and eye-catching. Felt flowers are also cute enough that they don’t look tacky and they can easily compliment almost any decor.

Gathered here are 10 of my favorite felt flower patterns. I’ve used several of these in creating flowers around my home and I love how they instantly brighten up a room. I am also looking forward to making those felt pine cones for the holidays. How cute are those?!

10 of My Favorite Cross Stitch Patterns

These aren’t your grandmas cross stitch patterns…

For years cross stitch has been viewed as a craft lost in time…something so old fashioned and vintage that you couldn’t even find cross stitch fabric at the craft store.  However, since the opening of ETSY and the boom of the creative DIY movement, creators everywhere have embraced this beloved hobby and turned it into something much more fun!

I just recently got into cross stitching, crafting up a few patterns with the help of Excel and all the patience I could muster…And since I’ve been bitten by the cross stitching bug, I have searched high and low for cute patterns and ideas and I’ve collected 10 of my favorites right here!
