This sweet tequila lime glaze is coated over crispy, oven baked chicken. It’s a delicious combination of flavors.

Do you ever have some random phrase pop into your mind and you have no idea where it came from? Last week while making various tequila recipes, I kept thinking about a tequila lime chicken. I’ve never had tequila lime chicken nor did I come across any related recipes lately, but those three words just kept repeating in my mind. Tequila lime chicken. Tequila lime chicken.

The flavors just seemed like they would be amazing. Since I’m still obsessed with crunchy baked chicken, I decided to make a tequila lime glaze. This pale golden colored sauce is perfect. It’s even better than I had dreamed. It’s just the right balance of sweetness and you can definitely taste the tequila and the lime juice. I couldn’t get enough of this. I’m definitely going to be making this one again and using this sauce in other dishes as well.

Rita’s Italian Ice has continued to expand throughout San Diego, with their newest opening in Rancho Penasquitos last week. The popular shaved ice chain from the East Coast has several more locations set to open in San Diego in the next few months. For their grand opening, they offered a free regular ice or regular sized gelatis for $1. It was such a hot day we decided to get some after work, hoping the lines had died down.

Speaking of weather, how crazy were the random thunderstorms in San Diego this weekend? I can’t even remember the last time it rained in July, much less thunder. But in a flash, they were gone, and it was sunny weather again. So bizarre.

Anyhow, we were wrong about the lines. They were still pretty long, but we were already there, so we decided to wait anyway.

These fluffy little muffins taste like old-fashioned donuts, but are baked instead of fried. The make a perfect treat any time of the day.

These mini donut muffins are one of my favorite recipes. I recently went to a really fun BBQ/game night party and brought these sugar donut muffins for dessert.
I’m going to keep this post relatively short. I’m pretty exhausted after being at San Diego Comic Con for the past four days. Waking up at 4am, walking more than 10,000 steps a day, trying to get through all the insane crowds, it really takes a toll. When I’m fully recovered I’ll share a few pictures. Some of the highlights of my weekend included getting sketches from Tokidoki artist Simone Legno, winning one of the coveted LEGO mini figures raffled away, taking pictures with Game of Thrones actor Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran Stark), riding in the Gotham PD cab, and watching Jim Lee live sketch.
