DIY Basic BBQ Sauce

While I’m freezing my buns off over here in the dead of winter I’ve, oddly enough, been craving some of my favorite summer foods. I’ve made pineapple smoothies, tacos and even downed a bottle of rose to pretend like it’s not blustery and bleak outside. One of my favorite guilty pleasures of summer is BBQ…whether…

Healthier Crunchwrap Supremes

Picture it: New Years Eve. 2011. Starving, exhausted and in desperate need of something delicious and satisfying. This is a memory I will always cherish: the first time I ever had Taco Bell’s Crunchwrap Supreme. The combination of gooey cheese, a warm and crispy tortilla, and the sound of that crunch still makes my heart…

Homemade Pico de Gallo

We are currently living in the foodie culture. We Pinterest recipes to impress, there are thousands of food blogs on how to make the most intricate and complicated meals; heck, there’s even a Netflix special on “Baking Fails”. However, sometimes the most simple and classic of recipes can be the best. Enter: Pico de Gallo….

Pumpkin Cornbread

Just admit it: Fall is the best time of year. It’s no longer over 90 degrees out and you don’t have to feel guilty inhaling all your favorite comfort foods, in addition to it finally being acceptable to eat pumpkin-flavored goodies again. I fall in love (pun-intended…) with squash all over again year after year,…

Mexican Street Corn Salad

In true Cinco De Mayo fashion, here’s an easy and freaking delicious appetizer for your boozy brunch or happy hour! I’ve become really proud of this recipe, as I’ve tried adding different flavors and ingredients to try to get it perfect. Can’t wait to hear what you think… My favorite part about this recipe (aside…

Lil’ Taco Cups

Hosting happy hour in 1 hour. Haven’t showered, still cleaning, thinking  “do I have time to go to the store?” all while running through random items in the fridge completely panicking on what to make. We’ve all been there…the stress of picking a VERY last minute appetizer, because no one wants to be the friend…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Full disclosure: I’m not a huge “baker”…the endless amount of very specific ingredients and the stress of it coming out just perfect is a little too tedious for me. With that being said, this recipe is pain-less and surprisingly really easy to make (hence why it’s making a blog appearance). I’m not gonna brag, but…this…

Protein (or dessert) Balls

I would say one of my biggest flaws is that I’m hungry…all. the. time. There’s nothing worse than being starving, therefore too anxious and hangry to make a whole meal. Insert solution: protein balls. Easy to make ahead, they last up to a week, and they’ll satisfy any sweet craving OR hunger pains. P R…
