Mexican Corn Salad

As you can see I am back from my blog vacation. I decided recently that I needed to take a mental vacation.  Do you ever need one of these? I mean I obviously still had to go to my other job that pays the bills, but I have been a little overwhelmed lately. We are finally all healthy again. The kids and I had the stomach bug one week. The following week Amelia got pink eye. And we are now in Continue Reading…

Refreshing Water

Sometimes all you need in life is a good tall glass of refreshing water. I know what you are thinking. Water? Really? But trust me. Even though I am known to enjoy my glass of wine. This water is actually far superior. And of course healthier. I need a vacation. Does anyone else feel that way? Now that spring is here the weather is just perfect for it. And sometimes when a vacation can’t happen a few moments alone (no Continue Reading…

Shrimp Pad Thai

I am ready to have one of those lazy kind of days. What about you? You know the kind where you have no responsibility to wake up to (job, kids, etc). Oh ya I think that’s called a vacation. Well I had one of those in October so I doubt I’ll get another one anytime soon. Especially since November through February are my busy times of year with my job (HR – benefits, healthcare, payroll). And then let’s add in Continue Reading…

Cucumber Melon Mocktail

I like to drink. Whoa nelly! Before you have a weird look on your face – bear with me. I wake up every morning and have to have my cup of chai tea, most of the time followed by a 2nd or a cup of coffee. Then as my days goes on I probably have 2-3 glasses of flavored water, then a glass of milk with lunch followed by more water then more milk then probably a glass of wine in Continue Reading…

Tequila Sunrise Margarita

Today we are combining two of my favorite drinks just in time for your fiesta tonight. If you don’t know me by now one of the first things you should know is I’m obsessed with Mexican food, and second is Cinco de Mayo might be one of my favorite holidays. But also I love the month of May. Not only do you have holidays like Cinco de Mayo and Mother’s Day but it is birthday galore in our family. Our daughter’s Continue Reading…

Pomegranate Lime Martini

A festive cocktail full of pomegranate, bubbly and more! I know a lot people ring in the new year with a healthy dish so I jumped on the bandwagon somewhat. And most people on New Year’s Eve celebrate with a cocktail and I celebrated with this.

Green Goddess Juice

Need a Green Goddess Juice recipe to detox from all that beer drinking you did this weekend or yesterday for St. Patrick’s day? Well I obviously didn’t do any drinking to technically “detox” from this weekend other than enjoy this juice after my workout. And I decided spring is already playing tricks on me. On Saturday I sat outside read my kindle, enjoyed this green goddess juice and watched John fix up my garden stand.
