Are you wondering what in the world funeral potatoes are?
It’s a regional thing and I’d never heard of them until I moved to Utah years ago and discovered that funeral potatoes are pretty much a staple at any summer potluck.
If you are looking for a fun summer dessert this is it! This pina colada shortcake is a tropical twist on the classic strawberry shortcake. I love this dessert because It’s DELICIOUS and it looks cute too. And guys, I just cant resist cute party food. It is also so quick and easy to make which is always a plus. You will be sure to impress
Are you looking for ways to eat a more plant-based diet?
These Mexican Chocolate Roasted Almonds made with California almonds are a great protein-packed snack that tastes so good you’ll crave them.
My biggest challenge tends to be snacking. I’m a stress eater so I’ll snack mindlessly when I’m overwhelmed. Having healthy plant-based snacks on hand makes it easier for me to make good snacking choices.
California Almonds are a great source of plant-based protein and they are sustainably grown. I always keep a small bag of them in my purse for quick snacking on the go. One ounce of almonds (about 23 almonds) packs 6 grams of hunger-fighting protein!
Dinner time is a fast and furious thing at my house most nights. With six kids, including twin toddlers, we don’t have a lot of down time. Dinner is usually cooked with at least one twin hanging on my leg and verbally breaking up fights I can hear going on in the other room.
Some of you are probably nodding your head in solidarity.
I like to cook healthy meals but by the end of the night I am just DONE. I need dinner on the table fast so we can move on to the part of the night I’m really looking forward to . . . bedtime.
I love my kids but mid-week dinnertime is not my favorite way to spend time with them. I do love how quickly I can get dinner on the table with this simple solution.
I absolutely LOVE stuffed peppers. They are one of my favorite meals but they can definitely be time consuming to make.
I am so happy that Christmas Eve is almost here, I can feel it and I can just smell all of the wonderful aromas from the food that my family will make. Every year for the holidays each family member is assign two dishes to make and bring to the host’s house. My mother is in charge of hosting Christmas Eve every year and I love it since I only have to travel two blocks to get to her house , haha!
I am assigned to bring a side dish and I do not have a problem with that, why? Well because I will be making these delicious and so easy to make roasted brussels sprout with a hint of balsamic vinegar. I wanted to add more texture and flavor to the dish, so I also added some dried cranberries, parmesan cheese and caramelized walnuts. Can I get an “Oh yes!” for this recipe?
Huevos Rancheros were not something I had the pleasure of discovering until my family moved to San Diego. Once we discovered the deliciousness that happens when you combine something as simple as eggs, salsa, and corn tortillas, there was no going back.
Huevos Rancheros, or “Ranch Eggs” are about as casual of a breakfast as you can get but they are so, sooo good.
Now that we have moved away from San Diego (we will always feel like native San Diegans at heart) we have to get our Huevos Rancheros fix at home. This recipe pulls in all our favorite Mexican flavors and adds some delicious S&W black beans for some extra protein.
