Speaking of which, you must try this chicken recipe ASAP. I've had it pinned on my Pinterest board forever, and decided to make it this week as a final nod to creative cooking before the baby comes. This is one of those recipes that takes almost no time, energy, effort or cost, but packs a punch on flavor and wow factor. You simply whisk together dijon mustard, maple syrup and rice vinegar, cover the chicken with it and bake it all in a foil-lined pan. There's next to no clean up, and this was some of the most flavorful, tender chicken I've ever prepared. This definitely needs to be in the culinary arsenal of every weeknight cook I know. Check it out...

Disregard or embrace the name as it suits you... all that matters is the deliciousness!
With that, I'm off to spend the weekend embracing labor-inducing old wives' tales and gathering my energy for what's to come. More next week!
