Before starting her at-home gig in April of 2011, she was a face-to-face teacher at a local high school rocking the literature and writing world. Because she loves to talk about herself, she started blogging. Over the years, she’s decided to try to make this a real thing.

Recently, I had a chance to try out eMeals and their recipe suggestions. My husband and I do love to try new recipes, but I have to make sure that the 8 year old will like them as well. I was so excited when I made the Glazed Chicken Skewers from eMeals and everyone loved them.

Have you ever made a recipe that pleasantly surprised you?

Glazed Chicken Skewers

The recipe was extremely easy, and the taste was the perfect “kick” that we all love. In fact, my daughter loved them so much she requested the leftovers for lunch the next day (and that rarely happens).

Recipe Notes

This made a lot of chicken skewers, and I commented to my husband that I think it would have been better suited for a fun cookout or party simply because there was just too much for the three of us to eat (my almost-2 year old refuses to eat meat).
