Mexican Street Corn Dip

Have you ever had something so good you couldn’t stop thinking about it? That’s how things went about a year ago when we were introduced to Elote Loco, Mexican Street Corn, at our local {favorite} food truck, LA Taco. It is an amazing combination of sweet corn, butter, cheese, and spices served (super hot!) on a stick and wrapped in foil to seal in all the goodness. Who knew this would turn into my latest hit, Mexican Street Corn Dip! keep reading

Copycat S’mores Blend

Did you know that I have a horrible addiction to coffee? Coffee itself is not so bad, but I am hopelessly devoted to two brands (including this one that currently has an AH-MAZING S’mores drink that is almost 600 calories but I’ve had two in the past two weeks and oh why can’t I drop this weight woes surround)…yeah it’s like that. I could really do fine on just black coffee and it not be a problem. It wasn’t from 2011 to 2015. But lately I’ve been bad. Hence, I needed a copycat s’mores blend drink to help me kick my habit and start making some healthier choices. keep reading

Banana Splits For Dinner?

This post includes mention of a sample provided by Blue Bunny. I was provided with a sample and small gift to participate in a Klout campaign; however, all opinions and decision to have banana splits for dinner are 100% my own. 

There is nothing like aiming to win the Coolest Mom and Wife of the Year award. If you’re trying, you might as well stop ’cause I hands-down have it. Surely Greg thought I was off my rocker when I called home and asked him to set out the ice cream tub before dinner, but too bad. keep reading

Heart Healthy Huevos Ranchero Biscuits

As I was thinking about a third recipe for the Red Pack contest I am participating in this week, I was leaning toward Huevos Rancheros, since it is on my 30 things by 30 list. I googled and searched Red Gold to see if I could find anything, and I came across this biscuit version. An absolute favorite breakfast item of ours is “Lucky Biscuits”, a discovery from Burgh Baby, so I am sure I can come up with a great adaption that we’ll have this weekend. If you beat me to the punch, please tell me how good it is! keep reading
