Today I want to chat about WATER! The source of life. I am actually a water lover. I enjoy a nice big glass of ice water almost as much as a nice big glass of Diet Coke. But let's face it - sometimes it gets boring. Flavored sparkling water is a big trend right now, but I'm here to tell you that making your own still, infused water is just as good, if not better than those expensive canned waters. Reduce Single-Use Plastic Bottle Waste Today we've teamed up with Dopper to bring water . . .
I love chicken tortilla soup. The combination of flavors and textures is a party in my mouth. Chicken Tortilla Soup Inspired By Acapulco When I was in college there was an awesome restaurant called Acapulco. We enjoyed dining there and often times I would order their chicken tortilla soup as my entree. I loved that it was full of veggies - zucchini and carrots, and topped with homemade tortilla strips. Heaven in a bowl. So when I made up a pot of this soup for dinner I threw in some . . .
I don't know about you but my kids love go-gurt. You know - the yogurt that comes in a tube that can be eaten without a spoon? They are perfect for school lunches, but I have an even better option for you! Make your own! Skip the artificial colors and flavors and whip up some homemade go-gurt in minutes. Zipsicle Pouches I saw these pouches on Amazon last year and knew they would be so much fun. They are great for these homemade yogurts, but they are also great for homemade otter . . .
When Des and I went to Disneyland last month one of our FAVORITE things we ate were the skewers at Bengal BBQ. Bengal BBQ is located right across from the Tiki Room and they serve the most delicious and fresh food. Let me tell you, it is such a welcomed treat after eating churros, corn dogs, and ice cream cones. I knew right away that I needed to re-create this at home. At the park we ordered Chieftain Chicken Skewer and the Safari Skewer. The Chieftan Chicken Skewer is a simple . . .
Who like's hummus? For those of you who said no, I'm willing to bet you haven't tried it, ha ha! I was scared to try it at first, swore I didn't like it, but it turns out I do! I like it a lot! I've been wanting to combine a few of my fav salad ingredients into a new hummus lately - beets and goat cheese. They have been my salad jam lately and I thought they would be wonderful together on a cracker as well. Crunchmaster As Your Dippers On the topic of crackers - I am still really enjoying . . .
I grew up with a family that loved to hunt and fish and camp. I have really fond memories of fishing with my dad and then cooking up our catch for dinner. Some have an aversion to sea food, but I kind of adore it - especially salmon. It is packed with healthy omegas and leaves you satisfied without feeling like you ate a brick. Salmon with a Kick I've been making this recipe every since I was a newlywed. It's fast and tasty, which is kind of my motto. The combination of the flaky salmon, . . .
This is one of our family's favorites. I started making it a while ago because 1. I was out of groceries, but had a few veggies. 2. we were out of money till pay day and 3. I was out of time. SO if you have even one of these problems...well, even if you don't. You need to make this sausage + veggie sheet pan meal. It is packed with flavor, veggies and whole foods. Everyone from kids to picky adults will love it. The Veggies 1.You can fill your pan up with any vegetable or root vegetable . . .
Skewers are one of our favorite dinners! These rainbow steak skewers are really a staple at our house, and they are such a great way to eat the rainbow and your veggies! My mother-in-law gave me the greatest tip when it comes to cooking skewered food - skewer all of the one veggie or protein on one skewer. That way you can cook them evenly without burning the onions while cooking the steak. This way you can remove items sooner or later during your grill session and everything will come out . . .
You guys - we survived Expo West again this year. Each year we look forward to meeting with new companies and ones we have loved for years. Our feet are left sore but our cups are filled. Today Des and I (Kadee) want to share some of our favorite finds from the Expo. Janice Design Before we jump in, I have to share the cutest backpacks that we wore inside of the Anaheim convention center. With samples and business cards galore we needed good shoes and backpacks. I'm kind of loving that . . .
I'm really loving this Buddha Bowl week! They're healthy and do wonders for your PB&J lunches. When we were texting about what recipes we'd do, I immediately knew my newest obsession, these Chimichurri Grilled Chicken Bowls were my ticket. Chimichurri I've had chimichurri a few times before, some better than others, and even have another recipe on the site for Chimichurri Steak Tacos. But when my Argentine neighbor moved in two houses down, you know I hit her up for her chimichurri. . . .
