I have dubbed this my no-oat granola. I missed that detail when I first started adapting this recipe and was sure Better Homes and Gardens had forgotten to list the oats in the ingredient list. Alas, it was intentional and I’m loving it! This granola with a little homemade almond milk is my new go-to breakfast, snack, and occasional dinner.

Let’s be real for a minute. I bet that when you hear “pudding” you really hear “Snack Pack.”
It’s ok, me too. No shame in that. As kids, we didn’t know any difference.
If you were lucky enough, those glorious little snackies appeared in our lunch bags, day after day, and were the most coveted item in the cafeteria, well, besides Gushers.
Snack Packs reminds me of the legendary film, Billy Madison, and this clip. Great movie.
Now that we aren’t 6 any more are grown-ups (I use that word loosely), go throw away that Snack Pack you were about to peel open, and dig your spoon into a jar of this heavenly stuff. Read More »
This chimichurri was so good, I made it two days in a row. While there is nothing fancy or different about this chimichurri, I do believe it is an under utilized recipe.
Classic chimichurri is good on just about anything you can think of. So far, we’ve had it on fish and perfectly cooked pork tenderloin this week. Tomorrow I plan on using it as a dressing for my Read More »
Cha cha cha chorizo!
Sorry, that sounded like a good idea at the time. Like a chorizo party.
I can’t say that I’ve had Mexican Chorizo often, I just know that when I do have it, it’s quite a tasty treat.
Also, it’s a fun word to say (noted, above). It just sounds so zesty and authentic.
Truth be told, normally I cheat and go for the Soy Chorizo at TJ’s. It tastes the same as chorizo, but without all the pork fat.
Since soy isn’t the greatest for our bodies, and you can’t make it mass quantities for a low cost, this recipe is my new option.
I’ve mostly had chorizo with Read More »
Now that I am recently self-employed I have been spending my first week of freedom melting in my house. I was tempted to go to Barre class twice in one day because it was a nicely air conditioned environment. I would have really regretted that one. I can only do so much shaking and pulsing…
I have been trying out a few new meatless options for my vegan/vegetarian clients and honestly, it hasn’t been as tough as I had thought it would be! These meatless quinoa meatballs are quite a tasty alternative to the original meatball. They are just as filling, hold together well, and have great texture. I bet even the biggest meat lovers would swoon for these meatless ones. Read More »

We made three different kinds of lunchables as part of a back to school segment and they were a hit. We did not let them go to waste and took them for lunch, just like the kids.
These were delicious, light, and healthy homemade lunchables that included Read More »
One of my bestest friends and (oh my gosh we’ve been pals for 10 years) bridesmaids, Carolina, makes some awesome food. We’re old.
She is constantly telling me about Read More »
Nachos for breakfast. What more could you really ask for?
Your answer should be nothing. Absolutely nothing.
I love to enjoy this almond milk with cereal, in smoothies, and in hot rooibos tea. I try to avoid drinking it by the glass, because it will usually be gone in a day if I do that.
To take a load off of your plate for the upcoming Thanksgiving preparation, here is a game plan for a quick and easy side-dish that will absolutely delight the palates of your family and friends.
