Avocado Cilantro Dressing

Avocado Dressing (2 of 4)

I thought I would share a way to enjoy Cinco de Mayo a bit healthier.  This dressing would be perfect on a southwest chicken salad with black beans, corn, & tomatoes! It's also great on a regular salad and would be delicious as a topping for chicken or as a sauce in tacos. It's got a great sweet & citrusy flavor and has a nice creaminess from the avocado. Avocado Cilantro … Read More

Baked Mini Churro Bites

Churros (4 of 5)

It's almost one of my favorite days of the year, Cinco de Mayo! Pretty much just because it's an excuse to eat my favorite Mexican food! This year to get ready I thought I'd go the dessert route.  I've had these little bites on my radar for quite some time and am so glad I finally made them!! These are amazing!! They taste pretty much just like cinnamon sugar cake donuts. They are soft and … Read More

Crispy Fried Chicken Nuggets

Chicken Nuggets (4 of 6)

I had never fried chicken before this past weekend. At my girl's night last week my friend Kattie brought these chicken nuggets. I loved them so much I decided to make them right away since I had everything to make them on hand.  And what says southern and Sunday dinner better than fried chicken?! I splurged and made these for Easter along with some new side dishes I'll be sharing with you … Read More

Princess Party Punch

Princess Punch (1 of 4)

I made this pretty pink punch for my girls night last week and it turned out so good! It was sweet with just the right amount of fizzyness. This would also be great for bridal or baby showers, little girls birthday parties, or a gender reveal! I would definitely make this again and it made a ton! I haven't tried this but I bet you could even make the juice mixture before hand and freeze it … Read More

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies

Cookie Dough Brownies (2 of 3)

Last night I hosted a girl's night! It was much needed and we had a blast! I asked everyone to bring a dish that they had seen on Pinterest or elsewhere but hadn't tried before. We were all each other's guinea pigs. I made these cookie dough brownies and they were so good! Very rich and decadent but super addictive at the same time. I started with a box mix, but you can definitely make your … Read More

Copycat Chili’s Salsa

Copycat Chili's Salsa (3 of 5)

This is a recipe way back from the archives.  It was one of the first recipes that I posted and since it's so great I thought some updated pictures were in order.  And since only like 5 people read my blog back then, I thought some of you might want to check it out, haha! This salsa is great and super easy as you just throw every thing in the blender and you're done! It really does taste just … Read More

Wheat English Muffin Bread

English Muffin Bread (3 of 3)

I love english muffins for breakfast, and thought I would try making them at home.  When I looked at the recipes, you have to roll them and put them on the griddle and it just seemed a bit involved for the time I have right now.  Sometime I will definitely make the time to make the individual muffins, but I was elated to find this version to make it as a loaf of bread.  This was seriously … Read More

Funfetti Cupcakes

Funfetti Cupcakes (4 of 6)

 I'm back! Thanks so much for understanding and being so sweet about me taking an unscheduled break last week. My to-do list was super long and it was so helpful to just be able to focus on it. Plus my husband's birthday was Friday and we went out of town so I had to get things ready for that. Adam is crazy for cupcakes, so for his birthday I decided to make some sort of cupcakes.  He also … Read More

Strawberry On Top


Sorry I've been rather  delinquent in posting these behind the scenes posts, I'm working on trying to plan out my time better so I can get these posts up and keep you up to date on what we are up to.  This year, Adam & I have a goal of trying to explore our surroundings more. Meaning we want to do things around where we live that we haven't done before or haven't been to in a long time. … Read More
