30 Minute Spanish-inspired Chicken (Thighs) and Rice

I am so excited about this month's Fantastical Food Fight  because it is all about 30-minute meals. I am so excited to see what my fellow bloggers come up with for you. Here we are making Spanish-inspired Chicken (Thighs) and Rice.  I was inspired by a recipe I saw on Le Creme de la Crumb  but of course, I had to make it my own.

Campfire Potatoes

Strawberry Lemonade Ice Cream Pie

This lemonade pie is the perfect blend of creamy and tart. It is a breeze to make and a wonderful dessert to bring a summer event. Keep it in the freezer before serving.  We've just had the hottest summer on record, and this is a great way to cool yourself down.
