Thai Peanut Chicken Pinwheels

Starbucks has really upped its game when it comes to selling food. I remember when Starbucks only sold coffee. No food, no snacks. Nada. Now, you can almost eat every meal at Starbucks (if you have the dough). I've become a fan of their quinoa salad and spinach-feta-and-egg-white wraps.

If I ever ran for public office, I'd run on one position and one position only: make breakfast casserole a year-round thing. Why is it that we only eat it around the holidays? That's a travesty, in my opinion. I make breakfast casseroles throughout the year. I like them because my husband and I can… Continue reading Slow Cooker Ham and Hashbrown Breakfast Casserole
