You guys. I cannot tell you how excited I am about this new recipe. Summer is slowly coming to an end, so you must make this right now. Although I do see it as a warm, light and delicious escape to the tropical Caribbean during the cold winter months, especially when all you've been making is creamy soup and heavy pastas (what, you don't do that during the winter?). I love this because you can do all of the prepwork earlier in the day (or during naptime) so that dinner time isn't as . . .

I was just reminiscing last week with one of my BFFers about that one time I was pregnant with my favorite little girl and I couldn't do Mexican food. I survived on pasta and watermelon. And doughnuts. What a tragedy, because now, I survive on Mexican and watermelon. And doughnuts. One of my favorite recipes here is my Spicy Caribbean Shrimp and Mango Quinoa Salad. I took that shrimp and added a pineapple relish with pineapple, red bell pepper, cilantro, ginger, red pepper flakes, and coconut . . .
This side dish is so tasty! I recently served this alongside my caribbean cod with strawberry mango pico, and the combo was heaven. When I think of Caribbean food, I think of bright flavors and fresh ingredients. This rice combines a sweet and spicy rice and creamy black beans. It has a little crunch of onion and a bold splash of cilantro. You'll feel like you are dining under a grass cabana at sunset next to clear turquoise waters while you eat this rice. . . .
Several weeks ago I stumbled upon a picture of strawberry mango pico. I think I drooled. I thought about it for days and days and then finally did something about it. We were spending Easter at home, so I decided to go the non-traditional route and make fish for dinner. It was a light, flavorful change to the usual heavy Easter dinner. I topped my fish with a fresh, bright, and healthy strawberry mango pico. I picked Des's brain for the pico ingredients. Together we decided that . . .
I'm extremely jealous of all the adorable fall burgundies, infinity scarves, elbow patches, ankle booties, and plaid that I'm seeing all over Pinterest right now. It's still summer here in California, and an icy diet coke is one of the only ways I can cool down during a hot day of shopping an the outdoor outlets with my fellow bloggers (who am I kidding, diet cokes will always be on my menu, regardless of the outside chill factor). So we're still eating refreshing salads up in here! One of . . .
I don't want to toot my own horn, but this recipe is GOOD. Each time I make it, every crumb is devoured. This burrito bowl has been my go-to meal prep meal as of late. It has been a lunch I have looked forward to, and I don't feel guilty about eating. BURRITO BOWLS FOR THE SOUL I want to tell you how this recipe came to be. About four months back, my then-2-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer. It was and has been a very trying time for my family. My little boy, Graham, has been in . . .
We love tacos. I can't tell you how many posts we have here that have that sentence in it. You know what makes tacos lousy? Store-bought tortillas. You know what makes tacos great? Homemade flour tortillas. . . .
We have loved pressure cooker week! We hope you're dying to go out and grab one, we absolutely love ours. We firmly believe they will save your school night dinner scrambles, so you can spend more time doing homework with your kids having Bachelor nights with the girls. As a recap, basically anything that can be done in the crockpot can be done in the pressure cooker 2-3 times as fast. you have to have liquid in the pot, so you're not going to get anything crispy in there. You can totally . . .

I had a really lovely Thanksgiving this year. We're watching our niece all week while my sister and brother-in-law carelessly fleeted off to the Caribbean to prance around blissfully child-free. Bless them. And us. So despite the crazy factor, we fried our own turkey (two, actually) which was one of the best decisions I believe I've ever made. Ranks right up there next to deciding to accept the rock my now-husband gave me when he proposed, but that is neither here nor there. He's too dreamy, I . . .
