Fresh Salsa is one of my favorite foods. It’s basically salad without the dressing so it’s super healthy and full of vitamins. The only guilt is in eating the tortilla chips but who’s counting those? Another favorite food, mangos. And avocados. I could probably live off of those two and I wouldn’t complain. So what does one do with two favorite foods?
Combine them. Into a fresh and summery salsa. Be sure to select avocado that isn’t too ripe, unless you’re going for a guaca-mango type salsa. Same flavors, ultra-different look.
This is the perfect salsa for a picnic, BBQ, you name it. It’s easy to make and takes mere minutes to throw together.

One of my favorite things about this time of year is the fruit. In today’s case, strawberries and lemons. I love anything with berries, especially cake, and since I had lemons in the refrigerator, I thought it would be tasty to combine them for a dessert. Kind of like strawberry lemonade but in cake form….
These shots were taken a while back and I decided it was only fitting (in light of recent hot weather) to post them today. Black and white are such classic colors that will never fall out of trend and gold is the perfect accessory to go with both. The classic color combo makes getting dressed…
A few days ago, I posted a Fried Shell Taco Salad recipe and it seemed like it was a big hit. After all, who doesn’t like fried tortilla bowls? I’m a bit embarrassed to admit how much I love fried foods: fries, cake, ice cream (best thing EVER), egg rolls. Pretty much everything except for chicken – I’d hand…
I didn’t used to be a big fan of lemon flavoring but over the past few years, my appreciation for it has significantly increased. I LOVE it in fish, vegetables, desserts and these biscotti. This recipe is incredibly easy and if you’ve never made biscotti before, it’s a great intro into the biscotti world. We…
