You deserve it.  That’s right, you heard me, espresso brownies. Normally coffee is served with dessert, but why not have coffee IN your dessert?

Would you like some wine with that chicken? Yes please. This recipe is so simple and my favorite part… no labels. Every ingredient is what it is. To start, slice your onion into medium sized rounds.

This is one of those really easy weeknight meals that is just so good and super simple. This recipe is very similar to the Crock Pot Chicken Tacos that I make. However this one is made with homemade taco seasoning instead of salsa. While I do love the salsa chicken, this version avoids all those extra …

I had a version of this salad today at brunch and really felt the need to re-create it. It is so light and fresh, especially in the midst of summer when watermelon is in season. This is the easiest salad in the world. All the ingredients compliment one another perfectly. I was a little scared …
