Hawaiian Coconut Chicken | thecozyapron.com

We often find the unexpected flavors of both sweet and savory in foods such as Hawaiian Coconut Chicken, and it pleasantly surprises us. And it's equally as pleasantly surprising to find family and connection in places where we never considered we would, as well. For those of you who follow our blog, you most likely know that the big “story”, the big change in our lives, is our young son, our only child, leaving the nest to go to boot camp (3 months!) to become a ... {more please!}

As the weather slowly begins to warm up and the days are filled with more bright and happy sunlight, my cravings begin to gravitate towards the colorful, crisp, and fresh. And often, it's a lovely salad that fits that bill, scrumptiously. I've always been a real sucker for a good salad; I mean, I truly love them all, including even the slightly dainty, micro-green-y, leafy ones with just a sprig of this over here, and a sprig of that over there.

We recently found a wonderful little pizza place in a nearby community that we absolutely love frequenting when the craving hits us. Their prices are amazing, and their service is great. But the really fun part is watching as our pizzas, heaping with all of our favorite toppings, get slid into the large stone oven that blazes away, and then come out only minutes later completely gooey, caramelized, bubbling and steaming fresh. Ah...the oven. It's a hot place to be, that's for sure. And it offers ... {more please!}
