We All Scream For Banana Ice Cream

I’ve mentioned before, summer is here and I am obsessed with fruits. I’ve been using them in all types of dishes. When I have a lot leftover, I freeze them to keep for smoothies and such. Actually, my go-to morning meal is a smoothie bowl topped with fresh fruit and things like shaved coconut, granola…… Continue reading We All Scream For Banana Ice Cream

Taco Tuesday Two Ways

Fun fact: Taco Tuesday was supposedly a promotion created by Wyoming based fast food chain Taco John’s in the 1980’s. I’m not exactly sure how it got so popular, because everyone has heard of Taco Tuesday.

Blue Cheese Arancini with Honey Hot Sauce

I’m back in the comfort of my own kitchen again! I had a great week traveling home to Massachusetts, and to Florida for a couple days too. Talk about a strangely packed suitcase- I had winter boots and sweaters next to flip flops and swimsuits. It was fun, but I’m really glad to be home. The…… Continue reading Blue Cheese Arancini with Honey Hot Sauce

I hope everyone has recovered from Super Bowl Sunday! Along with the snacks, I made two simple pizzas yesterday that were deeeeelish.

I made a fairly traditional margherita…… Continue reading Easy Pizza Sauce
