Homemade Granola

I use to buy store bought granola, but I got tired of all the added sugar, so I decided to make a healthier version at home. Plus, the freshness value of homemade granola is so much better than store bought. Once you realize how much better it tastes (no preservatives, and the fact that you…

DIY Succulent Terrarium

I love having plants. Bringing a little sprinkle of green beauty from the outdoors into my home gives me such happiness. I have gone through many trials and errors in raising plants. I am currently hooked on succulents, because they require such little maintenance, and I haven’t killed one yet (knock on wood). I usually…

Kale Quinoa Tabbouleh

I love tabbouleh! It is so refreshing and delicious. I discovered tabbouleh when I was at Sprouts one day, and I have been hooked on it ever since. I had to learn to make my own. I made it a little different than the traditional tabbouleh, adding quinoa instead of bulgur, and lots of kale….

Copycat Outback’s Alice Spring Chicken

I love chicken dipped in honey mustard. So, when I tried the Alice Springs Chicken at Outback Steakhouse, it became an instant favorite. I decided I must make a version of it at home. First off, I always make extra honey mustard to use later on, and I’m a heavy dipper, so if you don’t…

Homemade Pico De Gallo

I love pico de gallo. I make it whenever we have tacos, which is almost once a week. I make a ton so I will have extra to put in my eggs, or toss in my salad. It is so refreshing, delicious, and easy to make. You can adjust the ingredients to best suit your…
