Beef Shank Stew

Beef shank stew

Two weeks ago we had a small break from the warm weather. It was such a welcoming change, even if it was only for a few days. Mother nature has a twisted sense of humor it seems. Either that or she’s not happy with us California peeps right now. Teasing us like that. I’m not a summer loving kind of…

All opinions are mine alone. #GameDayPizza #CollectiveBias If you would have asked me a couple years ago if I liked football, you would have gotten a big fat “nope” from me.

Cheesy Tomato and Chipotle Bowtie Pasta

Cheesy Tomato and Chipotle Bowtie Pasta

Don’t you just love one-pot meals?  Even better when they require no meat, am I right?  It’s good to cut back on the meat intake every now and then if you’re used to having it more than twice a week.  Studies have shown that meat takes longer to digest when compared to a vegetarian diet.  It also forces us to get…

Savory Fresh Tuna Patties with Avocado, Cucumber, and Jicama

Tuna Patties with Avocado, Cucumber, and Jicama

Every year during Lent season my Mom makes tortitas de camaron (fried egg and shrimp pancakes) smothered in her signature homemade enchilada sauce with rajas de nopales and a side of Mexican rice.  It’s practically a tradition!  I wish I would have been able to share that recipe here, but until I make my weight goal, there will be no…
