You guys know I have a love affair with pistachios, right? I mean, yes pine nuts will always be my number one… but pistachios?! Pistachios are high up.
This one time when I was about 12 years old, I was down the shore with my friend Laura. As we talked about how hungry we were, I realized my mom would keep tastycakes in the freezer. I grabbed two for a snack, one for me, one for Laura. Well, I tossed her the package…
Who all loves matcha?! Me me! It took me a while to warm up to matcha. When I first came across matcha I bought it randomly, drank it straight, and wasn’t quite sure. At first I thought maybe I’m not a matcha person. But then I started to experiment a bit. I’m not a quitter!! I think it’s all about finding the right mix of flavors, the right brand, and the right recipe.
There are so many things I love about this recipe. First things first: the flavors!! Holy happiness, the flavor combo on this bad boy is unreal. Add tender and moist dark meat thighs (my absolute FAVE) to a beautiful pool of fire roasted tomatoes and it’s new heights amazing. Zero exaggeration, you guys!!
So, I’m totally the parent that brought my kid to school when it was closed. I was one of three parents that stood outside the eerily quiet school, knocking and waiting. Theeen I looked up school closings online and BAM. No school. Needless to say I have since updated my personal calendar.
