Spicy Sesame Honey Chicken

Well this weekend was pretty awesome!  I had the chance to meet with other bloggers from the Southern Blog Society, specifically Danielle from Lou What Wear, Beth from Seersucker + Saddles, Grace from A Southern Drawl, and Heather from Her Kentucky.  All were wonderful and so knowledgeable.  Being a blogger newbie, I had a ton of questions, and I soaked in so much knowledge.  What does that mean for this little blog?  Lots of changes!  I'll be working on a new layout, business cards, logo, contests/giveaways, and guest posting for some other blogs!  So EXCITING!!!!

So about this recipe--made it several times because the hubby would eat it all before I could take a final picture!  This is from a man who "hates Asian cuisine"--just saying....
