I am a Mexican food junkie. I love tacos, quesadillas, burritos, bowls, and enchiladas. So you know how you put lime, cilantro and avocado on most Mexican food? Why not just make a sauce using all of these ingredients? right? I thought I was being so cool whipping up this batch of sauce, but after I made it, I saw like 200 different recipes on Pinterest <-- Check those out too! As it turns out, I use this sauce on everything, not just Mexican. It has the perfect balance of acid, … [Read More...]

Recently, I was reading Kristin Armstrong's book, "Work in Progress, an Unfinished Women's Guide to Grace".

Meatloaf, oh meatloaf how I love thee. You are not beautiful, in fact you're down right ugly, but they way you comfort my belly is like no other. What is it about your old fashion ways? Your alliance with the 1950's housewife and the memories you have created for many of us? How could such an ugly creature be so lovely? We had to give you up when my son went ketogenic, but you are back! Yes, you are back! I adapted you from the recipe that my mother used growing up, it was in her recipe box, … [Read More...]
