• Coconut Lime Chicken

    Coconut Lime Chicken is what I am living for this summer… and I think you will as well. Baby… It’s Hot Outside I don’t know about where y’all are but it is HOT this summer.  LIKE SUPER HOT!  When it is super hot I am not into super heavy meals that weight me down… and this chicken is light but bursting with flavor. There is a bit of lime, a bit of coconut and some cilantro sliding in here and there, making this a perfect summer dish. One Pan & Done In the summer the least amount of time I can have the oven or stove on for is a…

  • Key Lime Cookies- The Perfect Spring Treat

    Key Lime anything is a must have in the warmer months… and according to the calendar it should start warming up soon.  That means it is time to celebrate that cute little green fruit! Key Lime Cookies for the Win! Pie is what most people, including myself, think of when they hear “key lime” but that is changing.  Don’t get me wrong I love a good pie, but they are also more involved to make.  These cookies literally come together in about 15 minutes and are ready to indulge in within a hour.  No chilling, no wait time to set up… mix, bake, ice and eat.  DONE! Yes… you can…

  • It’s time for a FIESTA

    I don’t know about y’all but I am ready for a little Fiesta.  This Fiesta Chicken is a party in your mouth!! The good news about this meal is it seems quite indulgent but it really is quite healthy….now thats a win! It’s just so pretty I love it when food comes out looking pretty, I really do think it makes it taste better.  Have you ever thought about it?  If something looks good…it just seems to taste good (unless it has bananas in it).  For this dish the pretty not only comes from the salsa on top but also the browned chicken…it really gets some great color on it…

  • Summer is not over…yet

    I know, I know summer is coming to an end.  If you go to any store you are already seeing fall and pumpkins starting to invade all the aisles.  (Although I kinda love everything pumpkin so I am ok with that part).  But in my part of the world it is still in the 90’s, feeling like to 100’s, and I am still craving light but super flavorful dishes.  This Jalapeño Lime Sauce is all that and SO MUCH MORE! Just a little heat (unless you want more) I know Jalapeño is in the name, but don’t worry it is not super spicy.   The trick to this sauce is…

  • a perfect late summer quinoa

    Quinoa is for sure one of my favorite sides.  I love it on its own, with chicken or fish, or mixed into a salad.  One of my latest creations is this Cilantro Lime Quinoa and I am OBSESSED with it!! A side for ANYTHING & ANYTIME!  I love sides that can be used for multiple meals.  For this quinoa I love it it beside some grilled chicken, but the next day I eat it cold for lunch with come chopped avocado & pico de gallo in it.   Yes you read that right, I eat it cold. One of my favorite ways to have quinoa is cold or in a…

  • a perfect side for Taco Tuesday (or Monday, Wednesday…or any day)

    Taco Tuesday is here!!  For me this is definately a favorite.  I love, love, love anything with a Mexican/Tex-Mex flair, so a whole day devoted just to tacos sounds like a perfect day.   It is so much more than just tacos I know tacos should be the star of Taco Tuesday but to me the sides are just as important (if not even more).  I love the chips, the salsa, the queso (like this one) and of course the beans and rice.   Now I am all about the more traditional Red Rice but I am obsessed this Cilantro Lime Rice.   It is AMAZING! So much flavor in so…
