Beef Taquitos


I’m a guacamole snob.  I’m from California and I’ve lived in Arizona since I was 4 years old.  Needless to say I’ve had avocados and guacamole around my entire life.  I’m not a guacamole purist per say, but I know one thing…it should taste good.  I’ve never been able to find a store bought guacamole that I liked.  I try a new one here and there off someone’s suggestion, I don’t like it, and

Apple-Cranberry & Brie Bites

Apple-Cranberry & Brie Bites 7

I love little bites, appetizers, and dips.  They’re my favorite food for the holidays.  I can try a little bit of everything and mini versions of food are always more fun.  That’s why I’m loving these Apple-Cranberry & Brie Bites.  You can polish one off in 3 or 4 bites, they’re cheesy, sweet, and buttery.  The perfect holiday bite. When I got the chance to bake with Lucky Leaf for

No Bake Lemon Raspberry Mousse Pies in a Jar 3

What’s your favorite part of summer? Is it spending all day at the pool?  Barbecuing with your friends?  Eating grilled food and no bake desserts? We have A LOT of summer birthdays, especially in July.  They’re fun, and I love seeing my family.  But the food is my favorite part.  We do almost all our get togethers {holidays, birthdays, etc.} potluck style.  I’m usually the one bringing a side dish,

The Most Powerful Thing…


  The most powerful tool you have to transform your health or keep your health is your fork! Use it well and you will thrive. Choose poorly and you will suffer.  This principle starts at a very young age but it can also turn things around mid-stream if you’ve been using your fork in a harmful way.  Actually, I find that the less a person uses their fork, usually the

Why I love

Minted 2

Hi everyone!  I’m really excited to get to talk to you little about today.  Minted is a great website that is best know for their Christmas cards, but there’s so much more.  I actually got to review their Christmas cards last year and they are so great.  Artsy, better than your regular old card designs, totally fab!     They have wedding invitations, business cards, wall art, and party decor.

Green Chile Shrimp Pasta

Green Chile Shrimp Pasta 1

Have you ever walked through a store, seen a product, and had an “I wonder if that’s really any good” moment? I have, frequently.  I was walking through Safeway last month and saw these Kraft Recipe Makers boxes near the meat case.  There were 3 different flavors that all sounded good.  But what were they really?   Than I lucked out, and was asked to review the very same product.

Batman Piggy Bank


What kid doesn’t love piggy banks?  I mean seriously.  They jingle when you drop a coin in, they’re cute, and  they come in so many varieties.    I love this little chubby one from Child to Cherish.  But plain is kind of boring, so I decided to jazz up this little guy for Otto.   When this {not so} little guy arrived to my house, I had no idea what

My head is on over drive for the blog.  Here’s the To-Do list: A handful of product review ops came to my inbox.  YAY!  So there will be some great new products I’m trying first hand to share with soon.  I’m really excited.  I said yes because they are products worth trying, not for goods/money.  That’s secondary to “is this right for me and my readers?” I’m putting together the
