It’s time for a FIESTA

Does a New Year = A Healthier You?  In my world I am all about moderation.  I try to make sure 80-85% of my meals are on the healthier end with a small percentage being a little more indulgent.  It seems to work for me. The good news about this …

A sweet treat to welcome 2018

I could eat these everyday

I think if I could only eat one thing for the rest if my life it might just be mashed potatoes.  I LOVE THEM that much, especially this new mashed potato recipe.  Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes.  They are loaded with tons a flavor, they are rich and creamy. It’s a family …
