Taco Lasagna

Good morning and happy Sunday! Currently I’m at our local football field supporting my honey’s flag football team. Go Orange! 😊  Since the game hasn’t started, I figured it’s the perfect time to wrap up the recipes from my Friday Cinco de Mayo dinner, which you can link to here for guacamole and here for…

Watermelon Margaritas!

Hey there! In my last post I mentioned watermelon Margaritas, so of course I have to share the recipe! Whenever Austin and I go to Longhorn Steakhouse, he always gets a watermelon margarita, so I decided to make it myself. It was super refreshing and hardly took any time at all with my Nutribullet. These…

The Easiest Guacamole You’ll Ever Make

Hey guys! Happy Saturday!  Last night I put my cooking skills to work and surprised Austin with a tasty spread of Taco Lasagna, Watermelón Margaritas, and his favorite Guacamole recipe. It’s basically a copycat Chipotle recipe, but their website says that they use jalapeños and to quote Logic’s new album, “I don’t wanna die today.”…

¡Feliz Cinco de Mayo 2017! Tasty Turkey Taco Recipe!

Hola mis amigos! I’ve been practicing my Spanish lately with my friend Angelica, and I think I’m maybe 50% of the way to being fluent! Not too bad considering I’ve only taken 5 Spanish courses between high school and college, have a Rosetta Stone subscription, AND am Puerto Rican, right…? Looks like I need to…

Fresh Couscous Salad

Hi, fellow foodies! Long time no see! I’ve been preoccupied lately with the aftermath of a car accident (we’re recovering! 🙁 ), moving to a new apartment unexpectedly, my Marketing Communications online class, and of course my job at the college. Needless to say, I’m extremely excited to be on Spring Break for the next week…

Because I’m clearly obsessed with food, I always have recipe videos popping up on my Facebook feed and I just had to try this…

Home-Made Healthy Chicken Takeout
Sweet Chili Chicken and Broccoli

Hi, guys! If there’s one thing you’re going to learn about me, it’s that I don’t like to spend a whole lot of time cooking after I come home from work. I mean, who does, right? The dilemma then comes up: Do I spend $30 on take-out that’s going to cause my waistline to expand,…

Honey Baked Apples
Honey Baked Apples

It’s fall, y’all, and in my house we’ve been craving sweets! We’re sticking to our diets and holding each other accountable so neither of us cracks and heads straight for Dairy Queen, so when Austin suggested dessert last night I had to get creative!

Garlic Rosemary Chicken and Tri-Colored Quinoa

During the last 20 minutes of each work day, I’m usually thinking up a dish that I can whip up quickly for dinner when I get home. Last night I knew I had some chicken breast in the freezer and was about stop by Publix on the way home from work to pick up some…
