Spicy Chicken Salad - your new favorite lunch! Serve on toasted buns or as lettuce wraps!

What do you usually do for lunch?

I got in this nasty habit of buying salads for lunch a few weeks ago. I used it as an excuse to get out of the house (which is also my work) but it got real expensive, real quick. So I’ve been looking for options that aren’t bags of nacho cheese tortilla chips or boxed macaroni and cheese.

You know, healthier options.

Anyway, I’ve broken the salad habit and the mac and cheese habit and I’m officially hooked on this Spicy Chicken Salad.

I’m super duper excited (like, seriously) to share the brand new Blue Plate® Light Mayonnaise with Greek Yogurt.

You guys, this mayo has half the fat of regular mayo and is the only mayo out there to offer protein as a nutrient. This is a big deal.

You won’t miss the fat though – it’s got a creamy, tangy flavor that really enhances the flavor of food.

This Spicy Chicken Salad recipe was developed specifically for Blue Plate® Light Mayonnaise with Greek Yogurt by James Beard winning Chef Alon Shaya of Shaya restaurant in New Orleans.

I’m a chicken salad person – are you? I am forever making this recipe that calls for sweet things like grapes and pecans so I was excited to try a spicy chicken salad! It’s got chicken, red onion, celery, mint, cilantro! Plus, the Blue Plate® Light Mayonnaise with Greek Yogurt and sriracha for the heat.

I found these cute slider buns to serve mine on but you could totally serve it on regular sandwich bread or even wrapped up in lettuce!

Banana Cream Pie - this no bake pie is the perfect summer dessert! Layers of vanilla custard, sliced bananas, and whipped cream in a graham cracker crust. So delicious!

I had a dream about Banana Cream Pie last week.

Seriously, pie. I had a dream about pie.

This is my life.

Clearly, I had to make a banana cream pie after that. Because once the idea was in my head, it wasn’t leaving.

Banana Cream Pie - this no bake pie is the perfect summer dessert! Layers of vanilla custard, sliced bananas, and whipped cream in a graham cracker crust. So delicious!

This is the easiest pie ever.

It starts with a graham cracker crust – homemade or not! Then you make a quick and simple vanilla custard. Layer that with bananas and top it all off with some freshly whipped cream (or Cool Whip if you prefer)!

This is the perfect pie for summer since it’s no bake and you’ll only spend a couple minutes whisking the custard on the stove.

Watermelon Mint Margaritas are the most refreshing summer drink! Perfect for poolside parties, Cinco de Mayo, or just a Friday night! 

Watermelon Mint Margaritas - the most refreshing summer drink! Perfect for poolside parties, Cinco de Mayo, or just a Friday night!

I feel like I’ve been so behind on holidays this year. I didn’t post a single Mardi Gras recipe, I think I posted one for Easter, and I can’t name another holiday that’s passed to save my life.

It’s safe to say that if there were more, I definitely missed them.

But I will not miss Cinco de Mayo! We’re starting a couple weeks early so I can squeeze in all the margaritas and melted cheese I can come up with.

(I’ve also started planning for National S’mores Day. I may miss all the other holidays but you know I’ll be here for margaritas and s’mores.)

Watermelon Mint Margaritas!

I’ve been obsessed with watermelon for the last couple summers and it looks like it will be continuing this year since I couldn’t wait to share these Watermelon Mint Margaritas with you!

They’re really easy and yes, they start with fresh watermelon. No fake stuff here! You just need the watermelon and then you make a quick mint simple syrup, stir in some tequila and lime juice, and you’re done!

I bet they would be delicious next to a pool or on the beach or basically anywhere that it’s hot!

And look how pretty they are!

Strawberry Cake Mix Doughnuts - homemade doughnuts in minutes! You won't be able to resist these fluffy doughnuts!

If you aren’t following me on social (WHY?! DO IT!), you may not know that I am beyond obsessed with doughnuts these days.

I plan my weeks around when and where I can get doughnuts. I went hiking the other day just so I had an excuse to hit my favorite drive thru doughnut shop on the way home.

It’s bad.

As you read this, I’m probably somewhere buying our weekend supply of those fried rings of deliciousness.

Strawberry Cake Mix Doughnuts - homemade doughnuts in minutes! You won't be able to resist these fluffy doughnuts!

But I thought for right now, I could show you my favorite cheater way to make doughnuts at home.

Yep, cake mix! All you need is cake mix and a doughnut pan.

Well, and all the other stuff but you probably already have oil and eggs and water.

You know I love the Pillsbury Moist Supreme cake mixes! They are my all-time fave cake mixes – cakes and cupcakes just turn out so moist and fluffy!

And doughnuts turn out moist and fluffy too! Woo!

So to make these Strawberry Cake Mix Doughnuts, you just mix the cake mix with oil, eggs, and water and then bake them for about 10 minutes. Let them cool and then cover them in my new favorite frosting: Pillsbury Fluffy Frost in Strawberry Marshmallow. And then put sprinkles everywhere!

(And of course, you could use a different flavor cake mix if you really wanted but why would you want to? The strawberry is pink! Pink doughnuts!)

I’m obsessed.

If you’ve never had a baked doughnut, they’re really more the texture of a cupcake buuuuut, it’s more fun when they’re shaped like doughnuts, right?

I love these and I hope you love them too. Let me know what your favorite ways to use Pillsbury cake mixes and frostings in the comments!
