Homemade Ranch Seasoning

Homemade Ranch Seasoning

It’s time to ditch those store bought seasoning mixes and start making your own. Not only are they full of yucky, unhealthy additives, but by making them you can actually see what you are putting into what you cook. I’m sick of all these crazy ass additives that are put in those freakin’ packets, it’s just scary. I have recently started making my own seasonings and it has made some of my recipes actually 10x’s better. I’ve literally put this homemade ranch seasoning in pretty much everything -my turkey burgers, potatoes, dressings & dips. Even made a delicious slow cooker Ranch…

Do you get bored with food sometimes or am I the only one?

Not anymore my friends! By simply changing the shape of a food can make all the difference in the world and take a boring classic to a whole ‘nother level! These Parmesan Herb Potato Crisps have become my new…

Chicamole Recipe

Chicamole Recipe

Holy moly, it’s Chicamole! You might be thinking I have gone off the deep end once again, but fear not! I am still semi-sane. Chicken + Guacamole = Chicamole. Aka my new favorite go-to lunch/snack. This hybrid of fresh, delicious ingredients happened by accident when I was on one of my avocado benders. I literally ate an avocado at every meal. This was one of those things that I said to myself after eating for the first time “why didn’t I think of this sooner?!” Yeah, it’s that kind of dish. I have topped pretty much everything with Chicamole – crackers, bread,…

Stuffed Turkey Cutlet – 21 Day Fix Approved

Back to school means back to routines and let me tell you, this mama could not be more excited about that! Following a schedule is one of those things I got used to after becoming a mom and I again find myself saying “Who am I?!” With the kids schedules getting back on track, both my husband and I can get our own where we want it. That means, meal planning & exercising. I have been trying out a bunch of new recipes this summer to add to the mix and thought of this bad boy after eating like shit for…

Evian Facial Spray ~ My New Workout Buddy

So, Florida is hot. I mean, picture walking out of your cool air conditioned house and immediately hitting a thick, wall of humidity. In August you can literally cut the humidity with a knife. It is unbearable but mark my words, I’d rather my wall-o-humidity than snow any day of the week! My fitness routine does not stop in the hot weather, cause let’s face it, if that were the case, I’d never work out! My summer workouts are extra rough and extra sweaty. Enter my new workout BFF: Evian Facial Spray. You may be thinking, why the heck am…

Cheerios Snack Bars

There has never been a time where our pantry has not had one or two boxes of Cheerios in it! I prefer the original, while my kids and husband are Honey Nut Cheerios fans. Like most families, we have grown up with them and they will always be a part of our breakfast routine. With school starting next week, I have been trying to think of some delicious and healthy snacks for my little one to bring in her lunch. We have a strict no-nut policy in her classroom, so my wheels started turning and I came up with this…

Fig and Prosciutto Appetizer

If you haven’t already figured it out, I am all about simplicity when it comes to my cooking. Easy, delicious ingredients that are full of flavor & quick to make. Lucky for me, my parents are close by and love cooking just as much as I do. My dad has become quite the culinary genius in his retirement. While his golf game might not be where he wants it to be, his cooking is freakin’ on par. Pun totally intended. They recently came over to cook me dinner while my husband was out of town (I know, I’m spoiled…I am…

Enjoying our new pool has been the highlight of the summer for our whole family. Canon balls & jack knifes galore! What better way to enjoy this hot weather than with some frozen fruit bars.

Caprese Bruschetta Dip

I am all for my husband cooking. In fact, I encourage it. 9 out of 10 times he comes up with some outrageously delicious dishes that knocks my socks off. And there is always one that scares the ever living crap out of me to the point of no return. Well, no fear my friends, this recipe is NOT one of those! When we had guests over a couple weeks ago and he whipped up this little concoction: Caprese Bruschetta Dip. We devoured it! The fresh mozzarella, basil and cherry tomatoes were full of flavor and the tang of the balsamic…
