New Fragrance by Guess | Guess Dare

IMG_9108

There's a new fragrance that's taking the world by storm. The new fragrance by GUESS - GUESS Dare. This refreshing yet sexy fragrance was inspired by 70's icons like Charlie’s Angels and Bond Girls. The unique notes include Pear Blossom and Lime flower. In my opinion, this scent is for a strong and confident women who has a bit of a wild side to her. I love to fruity notes as it makes it easy to wear during day and night

I Dare you to take off those mom-jeans and wear a little black dress. Put on those high heels you'd never though you'd ever wear again. Apply eye liner and mascara; then tell me how you feel!




In addition to releasing this fragrance, Guess is giving away a trip for two to Miami! All you have to do is Instagram or tweet a photo of what you dare. Make sure to use the #DoYouDare and #PostToEnter hashtags.

GUESS Dare is available for $62 at Guess.com.

Chili Chicken Mac-and-Cheese

Today my recipe was featured on Martha Stewart's intsagram page (see below) and I got bombarded by questions about the recipe. The photo was featured as the winner of the #JustOnePot contest. I was so excited after finding out the news because I'm a huge fan of Martha and as the winner I will get a chance to meet her at the launch of her new cookbook, One Pot.

I never gotten the opportunity to post this recipe on here and thought now would probably be a good time. This is such a delicious recipe and very different from your ordinary mac-and-cheese. Hope you guys like it.


Total Time: 40 min
Prep: 25 min
Cook: 15 min
4 servings

Ingredients

Kosher salt
12 ounces elbow macaroni
1 1/4 cups 2% milk
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend (8 ounces)
2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken breast (skin removed)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 bunch scallions, chopped
2 teaspoons chili powder
Freshly ground pepper
1 cup home-made pico de gallo
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups low-sodium chicken broth

Directions
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook as the label directs. Drain, rinse under cold water and return to the pot. Toss with 1/4 cup milk. Top with the cheese and chicken (do not stir).

Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the scallions, chili powder, 1 teaspoon salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, 2 minutes. Add half of the pico de gallo. Cook, stirring, until the scallions soften, 2 to 3 minutes.

Reduce the heat to medium. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and melt. Sprinkle in the flour; cook, stirring, until a paste forms, about 1 minute. Gradually stir in the broth and the remaining 1 cup milk. Bring to a simmer; cook, stirring occasionally, until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 6 minutes.

Add the sauce to the pot with the pasta. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until the cheese melts, about 3 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup pico de gallo.

Please note: there are many ways of making this recipe. Make it to your liking. If making for kids  only add 1 teaspoon of chili powder.

Repeatedly I've mentioned how much I love Autumn, but being able to wear layers during this time of year makes me beyond happy. This past weekend I re-discovered one of my favorite places as a teen, the West Village. This place brought so many memories... good ones of course.

I want to wish a special Happy Birthday to my Mr./photographer. He's a huge part of me and a part of this blog. I love him so much for being awesome. I will be sharing all that we did for his spacial day soon.
