Every year Mother’s Day rolls around and I always find myself asking, “what am I going to get my mom?” I start feeling anxious about it too. I mean, is there really any gift that encapsulates the love I feel for this amazing woman? So you see, nothing ever seems adequate. This year I started to get that anxious feeling and then, by some grace of God, I felt a wave of calm wash over me. A voice telling me to sit down and reflect. So I did…and Mexican Wedding Cookies came to mind.
Time To Fire Up Your Grill!
I mean it, I’m fighting for that warm weather to show up and I’m coming in strong. Luckily I have my friends at Plan to Eat on my side to help me! We’ve partnered for this super fun meal plan to get you excited about the upcoming warmer months! What’s this Grill It meal plan all about it? I’m so glad you asked! Take a peek at what you can expect by checking out the video below!
I refuse to make this post about Cinco de Mayo. Instead, I want to talk about salsa. It’s one of my favorite condiments for so many reasons. This post is a profession of my love for salsa. For reading it, you will be rewarded with my super fresh Jalapeño Honeydew Salsa, perfect for ANY day, not just Cinco de Mayo! 🙂
I made something fancy for you. Something you’d find on the menu at a bistro. A French bistro. The kind with wrought iron tables set with fine china. The kind where you see (and yearn to be the) people sipping rosé and wearing dark sunglasses and white linen pants. I’ve never been to France, but this is how I imagine every bistro there. Super cool without even trying. Kind of like this tuna salad, super cool without even trying!
Can I offer you a cupcake? Really, can I? Of course I know I can’t physically hand you one, but I sure would love to. Because cupcakes make people happy and I want to make sure you’re happy! So how about a recipe for Toasted Coconut Cupcakes? My little gift of joy to you!
I’m not going to lie to you, I do buy my salad dressing. There just happen to be a few that I really like and so I keep them on hand. But, I will tell you this, I REALLY like homemade salad dressing. I sure do and right now I’m really loving this Creamy Cilantro Lime Salad Dressing.
If I could be a food, I would be a taco. I would, I really would. Tacos bring so much joy into this world and I would want to be part of that joy. Think about it, have you ever felt mad or sad after eating a taco? No! Just pure joy and happiness. What a life! I make a lot of tacos, and right now I’m loving them veggie style and loaded with beans. And right now these Cumin Chickpea Tacos make me really happy!
Does your family love pasta? I have 2 big pasta lovers in my household. And I grew up with a brother who could’ve probably housed an entire pound of spaghetti all by himself. Me? Not so much. Sure, I like pasta, but it’s not up there on my favorite foods list. So how do I fulfill my family’s pasta needs? I compromise with pasta salad!
Turmeric is kind of having a moment right now, in case you didn’t notice. Go to any fun, trendy restaurant and I bet you’ll find something on the menu with turmeric. Why all the fuss? Because it’s cool to be a root right now! How about a little turmeric trend insight and a recipe for a cozy Lemongrass Turmeric Latte?
Is hummus just a dip? Is it merely the perfect accompaniment to your carrot sticks and pita wedges? If so, then I’ve got news for you! Hummus is more the dip and it’s got me feeling all happy inside. So happy, that I made pizza – Mediterranean Pizza!
