I’m just going to go ahead and brag and say that I make a damn good smoothie. It’s not like smoothies are rocket science, but it is fairly easy to go wrong if you’re just indiscriminately adding handfuls of spinach willy nilly with your fruit. Pro Tip – Brown smoothies are no fun no matter […]

Time for another funky salad addiction – Tuna & White Bean Salad! You might be thinking, beans & tuna? Together? The answer is a resounding YES! This was SOOOOO good. Rather than the traditional mayonnaise laden tuna salad, olive oil and red wine vinegar give this salad a nice, light Mediterranean flavor. Adding the beans gives […]

Purple Power Smoothie! Otherwise known as Blueberry Banana with a few extras thrown in. I used to think I was having a healthy breakfast by eating a cup of store bought yogurt and a banana for breakfast. Then I actually read the ingredients on the back of my yogurt container and found that a tiny, […]

If you had told me even a year ago that I would now love green smoothies, I would have thought you were crazy. But it’s true. I do! While juicing and “cleansing” seems to be all the rage these days, we have 4+ years of recipes here to confirm that there is pretty much no […]

Have you had Mexican Grilled Corn or Elote yet? In my personal experience (we’ve had it twice this week), you don’t have to have it more than once to become completely and hopelessly addicted. It’s corn on the cob, grilled in the husks, and slathered, yes SLATHERED in creamy, cheesy goodness. I know everyone in […]

I’ve had several people ask me about Plantains lately so I thought they deserved their own post. Plantains or Platanos (yes, that first “a” will get the proper accent when I get home to my better computer) are obviously relatives of the banana but must be cooked to be eaten.  Firmer and less sweet than […]
