Chocolate Chili Surprise

To some people, chocolate and chili may be a peculiar combination and you may be disgusted by such a flavor combination; but if you are like me, you are intrigued by the peculiar and can’t wait to sink your teeth and envelope your taste buds in an explosion of flavor.

Mediterranean Chicken Skewer Tacos

Who doesn’t love tacos?! Am I right?! I love tacos, and am a huge fan of taco Tuesday, but I never just limit myself to Tuesdays for tacos. For instance, I made these tacos on a Thursday, and they were still delicious! I come from the glorious state of California where we have a ton…

Heirloom Tomato Pico de Gallo

First let’s talk about heirloom tomatoes. Honestly I don’t know if I have ever really had heirloom tomatoes. I have had beef steak and roma tomatoes, but not specifically heirloom tomatoes. Naturally, when I see pretty food in the grocery store I gravitate towards it, and that is exactly what happened when I saw a…

Ginger, Lime, Coconut Rice

It has been a while since I posted, in fact, it has been over a year. I have been busy with college and moving, but all of that is over, and I am, just like most of you, stuck at home. I thought, what’s a better idea than restarting my food blog! So here I…

Butternut Squash Chili

Chili is a regular dish in our household, it is my husbands favorite meal, add some cornbread and you really can’t go wrong with chili. Because we have it so frequently, I try to mix things up a bit and I came across this recipe. We have tried so many different versions of chili, but…

Cauliflower and Bean Burritos

It has been a terribly long time since I posted something new, and I am so sorry! I have been busy with school, work, and extra activities and it is so hard to balance everything, am I right? Any way, the other day I decided to do some meal planning and prepping, and came across…
