Not My Mother’s Chicken Salad

Not Your Mother's Chicken Salad - sheerheart.org

From leftovers to chicken salad. Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite ways to turn leftovers into a practical meal that doesn’t feel like leftovers. Holidays are great for fun, family and food. But sometimes you find yourself left when a heaping amount of leftovers. Labor day, yes it has almost been two weeks since, and yes, I have been MIA on the blog since, but we’ll discuss that later… Anyhow, on the Sunday of Labor day weekend, we had a cookout. Beef and chicken fajitas, rice, beans, guacamole, homemade…

August Favorites

August Favorites 2017 - sheerheart.org

Whew August was wonderful, and this post is about to be full of my August favorites! Being my birthday month, August is always one to look forward to, even though it marks the endish of summer. Not only did I have many favorite things, but I also had a blast making memories. Whether it was spending the weekends at the lake with family and friends, working and hauling cows from sunup to sundown, or hanging out with the family and “old peeps”, August brought me so much to be thankful…

Twenty-six in Review - Turning 27 - sheerheart.org

Time to take a look at twenty-six in review. There are only a handful of hours left of me being 26. Whoa, where has the time gone? This past year has been one of the best yet. From stepping out of my comfort zone to getting back into the blogging groove, it has been one productive year. In this post, I am going to share some of my favorites from this past year. 26 in Review Favorite Posts Lake Bound: Fun at Medina Lake Not For Sale Top 5 Friday:…

Beef Stir Fry – A Weeknight Dinner

Beef Stir Fry - Weeknight Dinners - sheerheart.org

Beef Stir Fry ended up on my menu a couple of weeks ago after lengthy discussion about our weeknight dinners. As many of you could relate to, I felt like I was in a rut when it came to dinnertime during the week. One can only take baked chicken and veggies for so long! After growing up surrounded by beef cattle, I have always worked it in to my menu more than perhaps the average girl in her 20s. Beef is tasty. And knowing where it came from makes it…

Snickerdoodle Cookies

Snickerdoodle Cookies - sheerheart.org

Snickerdoodle cookies, yum. I may not have grown up on snickerdoodles, but I sure have found myself making these often over the few months. On top of how great these cookies are, the best thing about this recipe is that you most likely have all of the ingredients in your pantry and fridge. Well maybe not the cream of tartar, but do yourself a favor and the next time you are at the grocery store, buy yourself some so you will be ready! Snickerdoodle Cookies I’m not sure exactly what sparked…

Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins (I Can’t Believe I’m Sharing This)

Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins - sheerheart.org

Most mornings, oatmeal is for breakfast. Old-fashioned oats (don’t let me catch you using instant) + a pat of butter + honey + cinnamon + diced banana + chopped pecans. Hardy and delicious, a great start to the morning. I’m going to share my recipe for blueberry oatmeal muffins with you, but as I always, I have a little story first! Some mornings I know time will simply not allow for this 7-10 minute meal preparation. And I just haven’t wrapped my mind around the idea of overnight oats. Any…

Dos Tacos, Por Favor

Breakfast Tacos

Last Saturday, as I made biscuits for breakfast, I realized just how much I love cooking breakfast. In general, breakfast is easy. You can improvise on the fly. Need a quick breakfast? Scramble some eggs with salsa or maybe leftover meat and either serve with toast or throw inside of a tortilla. Biscuits may require a recipe of sorts, but it’s an easy one with minimal steps and ingredients. Egg bread (or French toast, as you non-Rihns call it) is literally bread coated in an egg wash and cooked in hot…

Twelve Things Tuesday feat image

ONE 81 DAYS. 81 DAYS. 81 DAYS until Aggie football starts up again. I have plenty of things to enjoy and keep me busy this summer, but really and truly can’t wait for this coming season. TWO If you asked me which recipes I have made the most in my life, I’d have to say #1 vanilla ice cream and then #2 would have something related to breakfast, either egg bread (aka French toast), chorizo potato and egg tacos, or biscuits. Well this past Saturday, I went ahead and walked…

Twelve Things Tuesday feat image

Happy, happy Tuesday! Last week I was convinced it would be a long week after coming off of a wonderfully productive weekend at home with the family. However, it felt like right after I posted, it was Friday before I knew it! Earlier today I posted a May Favorites post of sorts. Since everyone is doing them these days, I figured I would participate as well! But on to my weekly, for the most part, post: ONE Oh Aggies. Why do I look so tired today? Maybe it had something…

May 2015 Rainfall

And just like that we are only 12 days away from June and the middle of 2015! ONE Aggie Baseball finished up its regular season, going 43-10! What a fantastic year. But now on to the hard part. Tomorrow they kick off the SEC Tournament, playing Alabama. The conference tournament will wrap up this Sunday, May 24th, hopefully with an Aggie SEC Tournament Championship! Gig’Em Aggies! TWO Just about all day on Sunday, I flipped back-and-forth between all of my ESPN channels trying to catch some good softball games. So on Monday…
