Yes, these are really Fruit Salad Smoothies, made from leftover fruit salad. Never, I tell you, never throw out left over fruit again!…
I’ve been in a Mexican food craze lately, and since Cinco de Mayo is quickly approaching, I thought I’d pull together a list of delicious Mexican Foods from some of my favorite bloggers that you can easily prepare at home. I hope you enjoy this Mexican Food Round-Up as much as I’ve enjoyed gathering together these recipes!
Although I’m born and raised in CA, I often feel like I’m truly a “southern gal” at heart. And I don’t mean Southern CA. I mean the South. As in where Shrimp & Grits, Biscuits & Gravy, Sweet Tea, and Chicken & Waffles are on all the menus. I can probably admit, that “ain’t nobody makes it like my mama makes it,” is not a true statement with these Chicken & Waffles. Were they good? Absolutely! We’re they true southern food? Absolutely not! Would I make them again? I absolutely would!! …
What do you do if you have just a little left over brown rice? I often reheat it and top it with a little cheese and salsa for a quick warm lunch, but the other morning I used it for breakfast. Egg & Rice. I’m here to say, it was actually quite good.
Oatmeal and peaches are the perfect muffin combination. They’re just sweet enough, full of oats, and the yogurt keeps them nice and moist. There’s nothing worse than a dry muffin! And, they’re “semi” healthy and lunch box friendly.
To say that I have an addiction to cupcake liners and fancy straws, might be an exaggeration, but not by much! I can’t help myself, I just love turning the ordinary into something a little more fun!!
I’ve been blessed with a sister that picks berries and makes jam every year!! More importantly she blesses me and my family with her unconditional and friendship, but let’s not dismiss the fact that I always have a few jars of homemade jam!! And it’s delicious jam!!
Wikipedia: “Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July or July Fourth, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain.”
I LOVE everything about the 4th of July! First and foremost, to celebrate our patriotism to our country. Secondly, I am nuts about red, white, and blue. Third, I love to throw 4th of July parties! And, lastly, I love fireworks!! What’s not to love???
I’ll be doing another 4th of July post soon, but in the meantime, as I’m finishing up my decorating, I think I’ll take some time out to enjoy a little fresh Strawberry Smoothie!!
When you think of a BLT, do you think of a coffee shop sandwich? Toasted white bread with a little mayo, a slice of tomato, some lettuce, and two pieces of bacon? Yes, me too!
I saw this Blueberry French Toast Casserole while scrolling my Instagram and knew I had to make it. Fortunately for me, we had some family in town and a text from a sister in law that went something like this, “I want to come see your kids (she was really referring to the grand babies), can we come over on Sat. morning? It doesn’t have to be for breakfast, we would love to see everyone. But I have fruit, if you want to do breakfast.” YES, thank you for the perfect excuse to make the Blueberry French Toast Casserole. And thank you to Sally’s Baking Addition for the awesome recipe. Sally’s blog is seriously amazing! I think I want to be her when I grow up (the fact I’m old enough to be her mom is totally irrelevant).We had 9 adults and two kids, and devoured everything I set out. A dozen and a half scramble eggs, two packages of sausage links, one pound of bacon, a fruit platter, yogurt, granola, orange juice, coffee, mixed fruit smoothie and a big casserole of this scrumptiousness!!
