Old Fashion Onion Rings

Old Fashion Onion Rings

I absolutely love onion rings! When I am at a restaurant and I see onion rings on the menu I also have to scope around and see if I spot any old fashion onion rings! I love thick onion rings! When I thinking of a fun Father’s Day recipe with Krusteaz I was thinking about one of my favorite products of theirs. Their cornbread! My husband is OBSESSED with cornbread and we always have theirs on hand!  So thinking about my husband, Father’s Day, and Krusteaz I knew I needed to use the cornbread in a recipe to celebrate Father’s …

Roasted Veggies with a Creamy Garlic Dip

Roasted Veggies with a Creamy Garlic Dip

Roasted veggies are such a great way to add a pop of color to your meal. Such a gorgeous easy dish to make! Somehow whenever I make this dish I am able to to convince at least one of my kids to try a new vegetable. Pair it with a dipping sauce and I can get my children to try anything!  Using coconut oil in cooking is always a healthier option that I love to sneak in there with my baking. I have always loved Barleans products and have tried many of them! I love their fish oil swirls and …

Yummy, but Easy Potato Salad

Yummy, but Easy Potato Salad

I spend a lot of time cooking with my mom. She owns a catering company and also does gift baskets and different treats for professional offices around Arizona. I am her right hand person and I love it. One of the benefits to working along side my mom is that I get to spend a lot of time with her and her friends and neighbors that stop by through out the day! A few years back she had a neighbor named Kjersten that I absolutely love. She would come over and hang out with us while her kids were at …

Steak Cobb Salad

Steak Cobb Salad

I love a good variety salad with different types of toppings. But sometimes I get on a certain salad kick and cannot get off of it! At the beginning of my pregnancy I could have eaten a wedge salad every single day.

So I love having a cobb salad where there is still plenty of things on the salad if you don’t like a thing or two and have to take it off. I …

Blueberry Cornbread

Blueberry Cornbread

I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Influencer Central for P.A.N. Cornmeal. I received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for participating. I was recently introduced to P.A.N. Cornmeal. It is a staple in Venezuelan homes and is recently making its way into homes in America. My family has always had cornmeal in our home. Whether it is for breading meat or veggies, making homemade corn tortillas or making cornbread. My family also does ovens in a pizza oven and cornbread is sprinkled down on the board before you place the dough to give the …

Easy Pasta Salad

Pasta salad will always remind me of my older sister for some reason. I don’t know if its because she used to always ask my mom to make it for her when we were growing up or what! But for some reason every single time I make it I can’t help but think about her! Pasta salad is one of those things that I feel is good all year around. But it is especially food during BBQ season! Whenever I see a pasta salad at a BBQ or a family gathering I always go to it first and get a …

We have been using our Santé nuts on salads, in our smoothies and in oatmeal, muffins and other yummy recipes. And here is how you make these yummy sweet potatoes: First you mix the …

Twice Baked Potatoes

Twice baked potatoes are one of my families favorite sides. My oldest son has become a huge fan of potatoes and baked potatoes lately. And these are his favorite way to eat them. Well actually more like these with a huge dollop of sour cream on top! I don’t blame him sour cream is yummy! I don’t usually add the extra sour cream ( I don’t think they need them) but if you are a sour cream lover go ahead!  So next time you have extra potatoes lying around or need a side dish try jazzing the good ol baked …
