As you may or may not know, I had the BEST weekend ever with all of my bridesmaids for my bachelorette party in Scottsdale, AZ. It was such a relaxing, rejuvenating weekend full of amazing conversations, girl time, hiking, tacos, margaritas, guac + all the chips. I swear to you, my belly needs a break from tequila for a while.
Enchilada turkey meatloaf stuffed with sharp cheddar cheese and jalapenos to make this a deliciously spicy and FUN dinner idea!
As I was photographing this meatloaf, I thought to myself how difficult it was to actually make meatloaf look delicious. Then again I thought, maybe a saucy photos are the way to do it. Saucy photos are popular on Pinterest so I’ve concluded that people must love them.
Or at least that’s what I told myself when I photographed this recipe anyway. Heh.
Guysssss. Can you believe that there’s only about 6 weeks to go ’til my wedding?
I have to admit that planning our wedding has been a weight of anxiety, excitement and anticipation hanging over my head the past 6 months. While I’m certainly looking forward to our day, I’m most looking forward to just being married. You know or whatever married people do. Netflix and chill? Travel the world? Slurp noodles like in Lady and the Tramp?

Mom’s authentic Puerto Rican Rice and Beans with savory homemade sofrito and sazon! You’ll love this incredibly flavorful, comforting homemade meal that will fill your home with unbelievably delicious smells. The perfect recipe to serve a crowd or just savor leftovers for a few days!
OHHHH hi! I’ve been teasing this beautiful recipe for a while now on Instagram stories and I couldn’t be more excited to finally share one of my favorite comfort foods in the entire world: my mom’s Puerto Rican Rice and Beans.
As many of you know, my mom is full Puerto Rican, as are my grandparents. My childhood dinner’s were often full of hispanic cuisine — often empanadas, rice and beans, tostones, pazole and ALL THE GOOD THINGS IN LIFE. More recently, I’ve connected with recipes that are from my heritage and started cooking from the soul again. Personally, it feels incredibly rewarding when Puerto Rican soul food fills my home with it’s intoxicating, aromatic spices.
And even if you aren’t Puerto Rican, why not try something new?! We could all use a good dose of global inspired creativity and cooking in our lives. These rice and beans are the perfect way to start.
Homemade roasted tomato basil soup with garlic, olive oil and caramelized onions. Delicious, flavorful and the best way to use up garden tomatoes! You’ll never want to go back to the canned stuff after you try this.
When I was younger, I despised tomato soup. The flavors never seemed to call for me, nor did I ever crave grilled cheese. My favorite was Mom’s chunky beef stew that simmered and bubbled on the stovetop for hours in our small yellow duplex kitchen back in Minneapolis. It wasn’t until high school that I began to crave the comfort of creamy tomato soup after Mom started buying Progresso’s hearty tomato.
The BEST cauliflower pizza crust — so flavorful and surprisingly easy to make. Low carb, nutritious, fiber & protein packed. Topped the crust with whatever your heart desires. You’re going to be making this again and again!
Remember when cauliflower came onto the food scene a few years back? Now it’s become so popular that it’s hard to find a restaurant that doesn’t have roasted cauliflower on their menu. It’s even mainstream enough that Trader Joe’s makes cauliflower rice AND cauliflower pizza crust (have you tried it?).
Abra, AK brand manager & the veggie loving queen she is, even likes to put frozen cauliflower in her morning smoothies. YOU CRAZY ‘BRA (that’s her nickname.)
