Move over Pappasitos because Chef Kie just whipped up some eye rolling to the back of the head quesadillas that will surely make a non believer believe again. This chicken and spinach quesadilla is so appealing not only to the eye but to the stomach as well, my stomach literally starting growling again as I looked at this picture. This recipe is simple and only takes 15-20 minutes to prep and make.

  5. In a separate skillet cook the onions and red bell pepper until it’s pleasing to your liking. I personally like my onions grilled a lot so it can be anywhere from 4-6 minutes.
  6. Get a tortilla and spread oil on one side of it. Place the side with the oil in a skillet.
  7. Spread cheese on half of the tortilla.
  8. On the same half with the cheese put a few spinach leaves, then the chicken, bell pepper and onions.
  9. Fold over the tortilla. Use spatula to press it down.
  10. Cook on each side for 3-4 minutes. Be sure to cook it on low so it does not burn.

“You are a human BECOMING NOT a human being.” I heard this quote a few weeks ago and it really resonated with me. Due to this world being so fast pace it is so easy for us as humans to get caught up in the daily cycle of life, merely just existing and never truly reaching our  potential.

I’ve studied several successful/happy people and one of the habits that they all share is starting each day with gratitude. Each person begins their day verbally listing out 2-4 things that they are grateful for that day. This sense of gratitude not only redirects the brain from thinking negatively of the upcoming day but it also puts them in control of their mind. Whether it’s being grateful for having a bed to wake up on or a mom who is constantly nagging you to take out the trash, it’s important that we see the good in every moment of life. Just imagine there are some people waking up on the floor and no one to call mom. Choose your attitude today and watch this motivational video.

Try saying the title 4 times fast, tongue twister right?

(Focus Kierra)

Any who..  Since I was a kid, curry never sounded pleasing to me. Possibly due to the one time I tried it and it merely knocked my tongue and nose off with it’s horrible taste and odor.

However, it is a new year and Mama (yes, I’m referring to myself as mama even though I have no kids) decided to show grace and give curry another shot at winning my love. And after rigorously studying (watching 4 YouTube videos.. I’m dramatic I know) I created my own curry recipe.

I’ve never been one to brag but … *brushes off shoulders*  *confidently laughs* BUT I MADE THE BEST CURRY CHICKEN THAT HAS EVER BEEN MADE!! Ok.. not EVER but you get my drift. Seriously, this curry chicken is sooooo damn good! Make Mama (myself) proud and try this recipe down below. It takes between 15-20 minutes to prep and make.

Ingredients:

  • 2 chicken breast
  • Cauliflower rice or brown rice (your choice)
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • frozen green beans or peas
  • curry seasoning
  • creole seasoning
  • almond or coconut milk (your choice)
  • hot sauce (optional if you like spicy)
  • lemon juice
  • red pepper

Recipe:

  1. Lay your chicken breast out and shake over a generous amount of curry seasoning and creole seasoning on both sides.
  2. Heat up pan and drizzle oil in the skillet.
  3. Place the chicken breast in and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. (until brown) Then take the chicken off the skillet and place it back on the same plate.
  4. Now in the same skillet pour 3 tbsp. of curry in the skillet. Stir for 30 seconds.
  5. Add 2 cups of Almond milk (or milk of choice) in to the skillet. The color will began to change. Continue to stir.
  6. Add in 2-3 tbsp. of hot sauce. (I wanted my curry to be a little spicy but this ingredient is optional)
  7. After 30-45 seconds of stirring add the chicken back into the skillet.
  8. Sprinkle a little bit more creole seasoning and red pepper, salt n pepper could work as well.
  9. Now chop up your red bell pepper and frozen green beans 2-3 inches long and add into the skillet.
  10. Stir all ingredients in the skillet. (chicken, bell pepper, green beans). Let it cook on medium for 7-8 minutes.
  11. For rice the choice is up to you. I had leftover Cauliflower rice (which is healthier and taste better than white rice) so I just re heated in the microwave.
  12. After about 6 minutes squirt in a few drops of Lemon juice (2-3 tbsp.) into the skillet with chicken and veggies to give the juice a little bit of acidic. Stir.
  13. Now plate the rice and pour in the curry chicken and veggies on time. Then enjoy.

Can you remember what your dream was before someone told you it was impossible or that you couldn’t do it?

When you are chasing your dream it’s important to be guarded of the people you let around you. Small minded people won’t see YOUR vision. They are always the first ones to discourage you from going after YOUR dream. See the key word in the last 2 sentences? YOUR! You were the one gifted with this dream so why listen to what they have to say about YOUR vision?

For those of you who have let go or buried your dream due to fear or anxiety of what others had to say, I hope this video reawakens your ambition to become GREAT!
