We had a snow day today. Again. This is the 5th or 6th one this school year - and we live in Texas. WOW! One thing that can help me feel nice and warm (or at least pretend) is grilling. There's a lot of things I enjoy grilling, but today I'll share a huge favorite: Stuffed Burgers! Read on and drool....
*Green peppers, tomatoes, carrots, lettuce, pickles, etc.
In a large bowl, mix the veggies and shredded cheese into the ground beef.
Take a chunk and form it into a patty.
Cook all the way through - on a grill or in a frying pan.
Place patty on bun, prepare as you like (mayo, ketchup, etc.). ENJOY!!!

Round 2 of my Favorite Pins of the Week! After a lot of positive feedback about this last week, I've decided to continue this fun weekly round-up. Besides, this gives me more
excuses reasons to hang out on Pinterest, right? I thought so!
Can't wait to share these Bailey's Irish Kiss Brownie Thumbprint at an upcoming get-together! If they last that long...
Can you tell I'm craving Thin Mints like crazy? These Thin Mint Stuffed Gooey Chocolate Cookies have me drooling even more!
I'm loving this Black & Yellow, 'What could it BEE' Baby Shower idea! Now I just need a friend close by to have a baby so I can do this for her....
Ya...mint is on my brain this week! I want this Andes Mint Cheesecake Brownie Pie on my plate NOW (then quickly in my mouth)!

If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have seen the fun from Hubby and mine's anniversary day-date. IKEA for hours, Container Store, Lowes, mall-browsing, and top it off with Cheesecake Factory! I've been dying to go there every since we moved within 30 minutes of one last year. FINALLY got to go, but boy is that menu intimidating! Seriously, the CHOICES!!! I (finally) chose their Chicken Di Pana....and FELL IN LOVE! It was so moist, flavorful and just PERFECT. I had to remake it so I could enjoy this fabulous dish at home anytime I got a hunkering for it. Now you can, too!
Ingredients - Chicken
2 Chicken Breasts
1 cup Buttermilk
1 cup Breadcrumbs
1 tbsp. Parsley
Directions - Chicken
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F. Spray or line a small baking dish; set aside.
Slice the Chicken Breasts horizontal, so they're nice and thin.
Put the Buttermilk in one bowl. Mix the Breadcrumbs and Parsley in another bowl.
Dip the chicken first in the buttermilk, then the breadcrumb mixture. Make sure it's very covered.
Place the chicken in the baking dish. Cover with foil and cook about 25-35 minutes, or until cooked through.
Note: while it's baking, make the sauce, potatoes and broccoli (if desired) - instructions below
Ingredients - Sauce
3 Shallots, minced
1/4 cup White Wine Vinegar
4 tbsp. Butter
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Parsley
Directions - Sauce
In a medium saucepan, bring the minced Shallots in the White Wine Vinegar to a boil, then simmer on low for 20 minutes.
Stir in the Butter, Salt and Parsley and continue simmering about 5 minutes more. Remove from heat.
Put it Together
At the Cheesecake Factory, they spread the sauce across the bottom of half the plate, then placed the cooked chicken breasts on top of the sauce layer. Then add potatoes and broccoli. DIVINE!!!
Mashed Potatoes: keep the skins on and add some garlic powder.
Broccoli: Steam, then add a bit of butter, salt and pepper.
What's YOUR favorite dish from the Cheesecake Factory?

Happy Monday!!! So I'm starting something new here for Mondays. I have a Pinterest addiction, and during my (many) hours spent on there I find some AMAZING things. Each week I'll pick my Favorite Pins of the Week, and share them with you! That way, we're starting the week off looking at wonderful, some drool-worthy, ideas!
Here we go for this week...obviously I'm in chocolate-mode. Wait, that's just me every day! Moving on...
Can there be a more tempting title than Oreo Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookie Bars? I think not! MUST TRY....STAT!
Although I'm still a bit in denial about it St. Patrick's Day coming up so soon, I couldn't pass over this adorable LUCKY Subway Art...way cute!
Along with my chocolate-addiction, I absolutely LOVE a good chicken recipe, such as this yummy-looking Creamy Chicken Picasso.
Ice Cream + Chocolate Ganache = HEAVEN! More, please!
If you know me well, you know I'm a major organization failure. I'm really working on that, though, so hopefully these 5 Things You Can Do Today To Feel Organized Tomorrow will get me off to a good start!
I like to start my day with a tasty, healthy smoothie the majority of the time, so can't wait to try some of these 30+ Tasty Green Smoothies!
I'm a huge fan of cheesecake, even though I get intimidated by it quite often. I think this absolutely delish looking Cookies & Mint Chip Cheesecake is definitely worth trying!
Again, an adorable St. Patties themed pin that I just couldn't pass up. Going to try these Leprechaun Cupcakes with the kiddos!
Chocolate, again. I'd say sorry, but I'm totally not! Especially when this French Silk Chocolate Pie looks just So. Dang. Good!
My favorite thing about Spring is the colors, so I'm loving these adorable (and budget-friendly!) Lanterns from Wire Baskets!
