Back at it

Thanks for all of your awesome comments yesterday morning <3 Your kind words and Liv’s sweet little face helped to make it an awesome Friday.

We had lunch with Kyle and the Pilot, came back home to hang out -Liv was having a teething day so we laid low for the afternoon-

went for a family walk,


and even cooked a legit dinner (legit meaning waffles, eggs, cereal and Halloween candy, which is what we had the other night).

Stuffed chicken

This meal was brought to my brain by Kristen, who suggested using the blueberry goat cheese to stuff chicken. I thought it would be an incredible sweet and savory combo, so I made a blueberry sauce (on medium-low heat with a little coconut sugar to bring out the natural sweetness),

Blueberry sauce

stuffed two enormous organic chicken breasts with blueberry goat cheese and fresh basil leaves,

Chicken ingredients

seasoned with salt, pepper and drizzled with olive oil,

then baked for 25 minutes at 375*.

When the chicken was cooked, I drizzled it with blueberry sauce, added a sprig of basil and served it with sautéed zucchini (on the burnt side, just how we like it).

Liv also had some carrot-apple-beet puree with her dinner… I think she was a fan.

Eating dinner

Afterwards, I did what all the crazy party animals do: went to Target with a goal to only buy the things on my list. A sweater with a Boston Terrier on it almost foiled my plans, but I managed to do it.

Then, we had cookies.

My twin friends make some of the best cookies I’ve ever had. When I saw this recipe and had all the ingredients on hand, I thought they’d be the perfect complement to our movie night. The Pilot loved them, too!

I’m off to do the work thing. Hope you’re all having a happy weekend so far!

Did anyone see Twilight?!

Have a great day and I’ll see ya this afternoon <3

    The colors on that plate are so beautiful. I think I need me some nail polish in the color of that gorgeous blueberry sauce! Was it as delish as it looks?!

    So happy your day got a little better! That picture of Liv is adorable! Looks like she enjoyed her dinner for sure!

    Mmm blueberry goat cheese? That sounds incredible!

  4. Courtney on November 17, 2012 at 11:31 am

    Blueberry goat cheese sounds like a DREAM!

  5. Naomi on November 17, 2012 at 11:47 am

    That blueberry goat cheese chicken sounds awesome! I want to make it. Unfortunately my fiance isn’t a fan of blueberries. Perhaps after this recipe he will see the light? 😉

    holy smokes that blueberry chicken looks delicious… I’ve been on a huge cranberry and turkey kick lately (before Thanksgiving? go figure), and I feel like this would be equally as delicious!

  7. Hayley @ Running on Pumpkin on November 17, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    Those cookies look delicious – way better than Halloween candy! I am seeing Twilight on Sunday!

  8. Amanda @ .running with spoons. on November 17, 2012 at 12:27 pm

    Glad to hear that you’re feeling better, Gina! I’ve gotta say that blueberry stuffed chicken and almond meal cookies would get me out of any funk as well. Hope you’re having an awesome Saturday!

  9. Anne on November 17, 2012 at 12:45 pm

    Oh my gosh, that might be the cutest picture of Liv yet!!!
    How can that not make you smile 🙂

  10. Averie @ Averie Cooks on November 17, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    Great looking cookies and even better looking Liv. SO CUTE!! Hope you and fam are having a great weekend, Gina!

  11. Jen on November 17, 2012 at 2:14 pm

    The cookies look awesome! I am going to have to try almond meal in my cookies, I’m currently perfecting my own variation of a lactation cookie.

    My sister saw Twilight without me, she liked it! So I need to figure out a way to get out and see it.

    Happy Saturday!

  12. Laura @ She Eats Well on November 17, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    I haven’t seen Twilight yet but I saw BOND and it was good. Love Daniel Craig 🙂 very nice to look at. And yay for the cookie recipe!

  13. Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries on November 17, 2012 at 3:12 pm

    Yumm that blueberry feta stuffed chicken sounds SO good!! I’m sure it would taste good as a spread on some delicious bread too. Hope you’re having a great Saturday!

  14. Brooke ( on November 17, 2012 at 3:52 pm

    That is a stunning dish! Props to you, that looks delicious. And Liv is, as usual, looking too cute to be true.

  15. Claire @ Keeping Up With Claire on November 17, 2012 at 4:01 pm

    That is the absolute cutest picture I’ve ever seen! Olivia is such a previous little girl! She melts my heart.

  16. Jennifer on November 17, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    Glad you’re feeling better, Gina. 🙂

    Please tell us about Coconut Sugar if you have the time. Does it taste like coconut? Can you use it one to one in place of sugar?

  17. Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie on November 17, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Twilight was amazing!! Did you go to see it yet? I’m so sad the series is over. That picture of Livi eating dinner is too precious.

  18. Jen@HealthyFoodandFamily on November 17, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    OH mama, that chicken looks and sounds incredible! Consider it pinned 🙂

  19. jameil on November 17, 2012 at 8:33 pm

    I’m thinking you could do with the blueberry goat cheese what a lot of recipes would do calling for cranberries right now. It also seems like it would pair well with chipotle.

  20. Bek @ Crave on November 18, 2012 at 1:08 am

    Yum those cookies look good! Haha what is with target and people buying way more than they planned 😛

  21. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on November 18, 2012 at 8:05 am

    That chicken sounds amazing! I love pairing fruity flavours with goat cheese.

  22. Emma on November 18, 2012 at 10:12 am

    Twilight is amazing…

  23. purelytwins on November 18, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    blueberry goat cheese with basil?? sounds perfect

    glad you enjoyed the cookies!

    we are still hoping to see Twilight soon!

  24. Alexis Barry on November 19, 2012 at 1:44 pm

    That chicken looks amazing!! I’m not sure if I can find blueberry goat cheese where I live though, bummer. I see things like this all the time on one of my favorite websites, They have some awesome recipes that I love to make with my sister sometimes. You should go check it out!

  25. Kylee on December 27, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    This basil goat cheese chicken recipe is one of my new FAVORITE recipes 🙂 🙂 I subbed in some cranberry goat cheese today too and it still tasted delish.
