It's been a busy week with at my house with my sister Laurel, niece Amanda, and brother Rand all taking a turn as houseguests.  They came for the wedding of my niece Olivia and the arrival back in Utah of her sister Kate; if you follow me on Instagram you might have seen the photos of these gorgeous nieces of mine.  I love having guests and feel grateful to have a house with space for visitors to stay, but as you might guess, not much blog-related cooking gets done when the house is full of visitors.

Lukily I made these Low-Carb Baked Buffalo Chicken Thighs with Melted Blue Cheese before all the family celebrating started.  I can't say enough good about this recipe, and I'm excited to share it, even if it means I have to give the Meatless Monday fans a raincheck for this week.  However there are plenty more Meatless recipes on the Meatless Monday Photo Index Page for anyone who's looking for meatless ideas.

Yes, I'm having a little fling with chicken thighs, and this recipe is a riff on the Sweet and Spicy Baked Sriracha Chicken Thighs that we absolutely devoured when we tested the recipe.   When I realized recently that Frank's Red Hot Sauce had zero carbs, it inspired this recipe.  If you like Buffalo Wings, you'll love this healthy chicken main dish with the same flavors.
