About Me

My photo
This blog started out as a way for me to display and sell my handmade jewelry creations. I have set up shop on, where my shop name is "Dreamin of Beadin". The link to my Etsy store is located on the right hand side of this page. Please check me out!! If jewelry's not your thing, then check out the site anyway ~ there are plenty of talented artists selling lots of cool things there. For your reading pleasure, this blog will serve as a sneak peek into what's going on "behind the scenes" in my world. I love to cook, so there will be plenty of recipes, as well as product reviews and the occasional product giveaway (woo hoo!) I also love to take pictures of anything and everything, and I just bought a new camera, so there will be plenty of photos. And I like wine too, so things could get pretty interesting . . . Thank you for your support of me, Etsy and "all things handmade" :)


Here's the Dish: Thai Grilled Chicken

Here’s a bonus recipe for you this week, since there’s a good chance you’ll be grilling out during the upcoming holiday weekend. At least, I know I will be! I recently made this Thai Grilled Chicken ~ I really do think it is the best grilled chicken I have ever had, at least in recent memory. The meat was so tender and flavorful. We used chicken quarters, but if you have an aversion to bones, then I think chicken breasts would be mighty tasty prepared this way. Cut them into cubes and put them on skewers for a change of pace! Serve this chicken with my Thai Pasta Salad, and you’ll be loving life :)
Thai Grilled Chicken
4 chicken quarters (or any cut you prefer)
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced chili
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
1. Combine all ingredients except chicken in a bowl, mix thoroughly.
2. Add chicken and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours (the longer, the better!)
3. Grill chicken until center is no longer pink and juices run clear.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend, everyone!!
