Edible Meat Cleaver Decor

Halloween is almost here! Time to get spooky and scary and make something fun! 😃🔪 I decided I wanted to make some bloody cupcakes with meat cleavers as decor.

Pickling Jalapeños

My jalapeño plant is popping up with so many jalapeños, many of which I use in various salsas for taco night. But, as much as I like tacos, I can’t eat them every night; so I decided to pickle all the extra jalapeños.😊✌️ Here is the quick and easy recipe I used: First, wash and…

Kale Crisps

I keep finding more yummy ways to eat kale! It’s so fun. Crunchy dehydrated kale chips are delicious. I always debated buying them at the store, but the price tag usually stopped me. I finally bought a bag to try. They were so yummy, I had to learn how to make them a home. Personally,…

Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

Philly cheesesteak sandwiches are so good, but sometimes I don’t want the added carbs of the bread. Solution: skip the bread and don’t slice up the peppers.

Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seed pudding is super creamy and delicious. Leave it simple, with the coconut milk and maple syrup as the star flavors, or add in some cacao or matcha powder for an added flavor twist!  The pudding is delicious as is, but I love to top it with yogurt and fresh fruit, which makes it…

Creamy & Tart Key Lime Pie

This is hands down the best key lime pie I have ever made. My favorite desserts are in the fruit family, and although I love sweet berries, there is something about citrus that has ahold of my heart. The tart and tangy zing perks me up like nothing else. Add that to a silky smooth…
