Mango Acai Bowl

Mango Acai Bowl 5

If you’re anything like me, eating a big bowl of fruit doesn’t sound too exciting. But once you blend up fruit into a smoothie, I’m all about it!


Lasagna Bombs

I love cooking but its hard to find a way to cook just for yourself without having to eat all of the left overs! Creating individual or bite-sized meals makes this easy! (more…)

Cheesy-Jalapeno Popper Chicken

Cheesy Jalapeno Popper Chicken 6

Who doesn’t love Jalapeno Poppers? Usually, poppers are comprised of just a deep fried and breaded jalapeno that is filled with either cream cheese or cheddar cheese that is small enough to be demolished in 1 to 2 bites (varies by how big of a mouth you have and how hungry you are at the time). But with this recipe, I decided to switch it up a bit…


Blackened Salmon with Avocado-Mango Salsa

Blackened Salmon 6

Spice up your plate with this delicious twist to the basic, everyday salmon. Seasoned with a little kick and topped off with a cool and refreshing salsa to cut the heat just enough for a winning combination.

You know you have real friends when they take you to great places to eat! Especially when they know that food is life! Recently, one of my friends introduced me to this delicious little place in Phoenix called “Taco Guild.” You know me….anything that involves tacos and guacamole is always okay with me!


Easy Guac

If you’re like me, tacos should be considered one of your main food groups and guacamole would be a close second. In Arizona, tacos and guac are easily accessible any time of day with 24-hour Mexican Restaurant drive-thrus open throughout Phoenix.


Slow Cooker BBQ Bison Ribs

Slow Cooked BBQ Bison Ribs 9

Summertime calls for cookouts, but with the temperatures as high as 120 degrees in Arizona, who wants to stand outside in front of a hot grill? Ribs taste just as great when made in a slow cooker with just the right seasonings and sauces.


Pink Drink DIY

Pink Drink 3

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I’m pretty sure you’ve seen this “Pink Drink” all over social media: A light pink beverage in a Starbucks cup with strawberries floating around with ice. So what’s it actually made of? It’s comprised of Starbuck’s Strawberry Acai Refresher, which is normally mixed with water, that is combined with coconut milk instead, poured over ice and topped with freeze dried strawberries. Delicious! Some even mix it with blackberries to create a “Purple Drink”…Lil Wayne would be so proud.


Grilled Fruit over Vanilla Ice Cream

Grilled Fruit 6

Summer in Arizona is a blessing and a curse. It’s hot and sunny 95% of the year and it practically never snows. But when the temperatures get as high as 120 degrees and your face seems to melt off on your walk from the car, you don’t even want to go outside!


Watermelon-Arugula Salad

Watermelon Arugula 3

Summer is here and the only thing on everyone’s mind is the pool and cook outs! Nothing comes to mind like a salad when you want to keep your body in shape for summer.
