How is everyone doing? I know it seems like yesterday, but I’m back again sharing my favorites of the week along with my friends Mary Ann and Cindy. One of my favorites this week is a recipe for fajitas that are easy and they don’t make a huge mess like those other fajitas I used to make all the time.
The easiest recipe for fajitas
Make fajitas on a sheet pan and there’s no mess!
Sheet Pan Fajitas
I love fajitas, but making them stovetop creates a huge mess, so I started making them on a sheet pan lined with foil and I’ll never go back!
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 3–4 Bell Peppers, halved, stemmed and seeded
- 1 large yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast
- Juice of 1 lime, plus lime wedges, for serving or lime vitality oil
- 12 corn tortillas, warmed
- Cotija cheese, avocado, thinly sliced radishes and marinated red onions for serving
- Preheat the broiler to high heat. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
- Combine the chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Put the peppers and onions on the prepared baking sheet, drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the oil, and season with half the chili powder mixture. Broil until softened and starting to char about 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, cut the chicken into 1/4-inch-thick slices and toss in a large bowl with the remaining chili powder mixture and the remaining olive oil.
- After the peppers are softened and starting to char, about 10 minutes, add the chicken on top of the peppers and onions and return the baking sheet to the broiler until the chicken is cooked through and starting to brown, about 5 minutes more. Drizzle with the lime juice.
The leftover makes a wonderful filling for quesadillas with melty cheese as shredded Monterey Jack and served with salsa or guacamole.
The New Lustre Diffuser
I love diffusing and I keep adding new diffusers. I used to burn candles all over the house, so it makes sense (at least to me) that I have diffusers going throughout the house. I’m currently loving all the citrus essential oils, like Citrus Fresh. It’s happiness in a bottle. The new Lustre diffuser is hand-blown white glass. I have it sitting on a small trivet that I found at Terrain last week. You know how much I like the collected look. Email me if you want to know more about diffusing or essential oils.

Kabinett & Kammer
I’m not sure how I came across the shop and author, Sean Scherer, but every time I scroll to one of his images in my feed, it stops me in my tracks. Sean’s shop is in Franklin, New York, a charming town in the Catskills with a population of 374. I’m so intrigued by this shop that I’ve made plans with my friend Ashlyn to meet next Saturday! I met Ashlyn years ago when we first started blogging. We both lived on the west coast at the time but didn’t meet in person until last fall when we met in Hudson, New York for a little exploring.
Sean’s book, Sean Scherer’s Kabinett & Kammer: Creating Authentic Interiors is out next month.
I love an eclectic mix
Speaking of Ashlyn, she has a beautiful way of mixing modern with bohemian in her home. I shared her kitchen in this post and I am loving the changes she made on her open shelving. Follow along on her Instagram @ashlynathome and make sure to follow out the hashtag #TheCollectedLook – Ashlyn’s open shelvings have all the makings of the collected look we love!

One last thing…I Can’t include it as a favorite yet because I haven’t watched it but looking forward to the newly released movie, “Made in Italy” with Liam Neeson and his son Micheal Richardson. Have you seen it? I love a movie in a beautiful setting and this one takes place in Tuscany!
