BMWK Pineapple cream cheese cupcake parfait Upclose and Personal Reynolds wk4 (600x450)

While I love being a Super Mom, it is mandatory that I never loose myself! Sometimes in life moms get so caught up in caring for their families that they forget to care for themselves. So I take time to go to the gym, go to the hair salon, and just enjoy being me. One of the best ways I’ve been able to be me and enjoy life is during Girlz Night Out! Every few months, I coordinate Girlz Night Out for my friends to get together and talk about life, go to a movie, eat great food and just lean on each other for support. Well the next Girlz Night Out is going to be a Girlz Night “In” and I plan on serving some great appetizers and desserts for the beautiful women in my life! I wanted something really special and it hit me BAM POW KABOOM — why not pineapple because it is way sweet just like my friends! I knew I wanted something portion controlled so a cupcake was the perfect size! Then there was the theme — when I saw the pink and blue Reynolds StayBrite baking cups it hit me — this is going to be a “Girly Jean Night” so we’d wear pink tops and blue jeans after all, what is a theme without colors?!? The cupcakes turned out delicious and beautiful. I know our Girlz Night In will be just as wonderful! Remember being a Super Mom is GREAT but never forget to treat yourself like the FABULOUS gem that you are!

BMWK Foil and Chicken (600x409)

The focus of my blog is flavor so naturally I was super stoked to bring to life this flavorful roasted Peruvian chicken. My family loves this dish is so much that my husband and I had to make a decision. It was either learn how to roast Peruvian chicken at home or take the family out to dinner to have this delicious experience every weekend. We chose to recreate the experience at home. That was just fine with me because I love recreating great food especially since cleanup was easy since I used Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil!

ROASTED PERUVIAN CHICKEN

INGREDIENTS:

1 whole chicken cut up
1 12oz bottle of corona beer
½ cup white distilled vinegar
½ cup lime juice
2-4 tbsp. dried oregano for marinade (plus 1-2 tsp. for chicken)
2-4 tbsp. dried thyme for marinade (plus 1-2 tsp. for chicken)
1-2 tbsp. sea salt for marinade (plus 1-2 tsp. for chicken)
1-2 tbsp. ground black pepper
1-2 tsp. cumin
¼ cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil
A baking pan
Bowls

READY, SET GO:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
  2. To make the marinade add the beer, vinegar, lime juice, oregano, thyme, sea salt, ground black pepper, cumin and cilantro to a bowl and whisk together to create the marinade
  3. Clean chicken, pat dry, add to bowl/bag and pour marinade all over chicken, seal bowl/bag and place in refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours (preferably overnight)
  4. Line a baking pan with the foil, place marinated chicken on lined baking pan
  5. Season with oregano, thyme and sea salt and place in the oven for 30 minutes skin side up, after 30 minutes remove from oven and lightly sprinkle with paprika, add back to the oven to cook an additional 15 minutes
  6. Allow to cool for 5 minutes
  7. Once baking pan cools completely CLEANUP IS VIRTUALLY ELIMINATED by balling up the foil and slam dunking that baby in the trash!
  8. SERVE AND ENJOY, ENJOY, ENJOY!!!
