Skinny Taco Boats

Skinny Taco BoatsIf you’ve been reading this blog for a bit, you know I have a deep, long lasting love for Mexican food. So it really shouldn’t come as a shock to you that I love tacos.

This summer I have been addicted to cherries. As in, I’ve eaten a 1+ pound bag of them in a single sitting. (My stomach wasn’t as happy about the idea as my mouth.) There are tons of desserts and snacks I want to make with these, but I since I’m trying to keep things as healthy as…[Continue Reading]

Can we all agree that it’s much easier to come up with delicious unhealthy recipes than delicious healthy ones? I mean, I have notes upon notes on s’mores ice creams, cinnamon roll cakes and chocolate olive oil bread – all things I want to make. But to come up with something delicious that is still…[Continue Reading]
