Easy Refrigerator Dill Pickles Recipe – Garlic and Spicy

I was all set out to make a homemade dill pickle relish recipe and even had my cucumber picked from my garden. It was actually the biggest cucumber of the bunch. For some reason, they are very pale in color this year and not green. This usually doesn’t change the taste at all (it was very bitter) as the last batch of cucumbers tasted really good and was on the sweet side. So, I decided to use the English Cucumbers I had in the refrigerator. But I was still bummed! I just really wanted to make my dill pickle relish […]

You know those little healthy energy balls that you can buy at places like Whole Foods and Sprouts? My sister and I made some the other day and OMG, they are amazing!

Best Healthy Homemade Granola Recipe – Heart Healthy Nuts & Seeds

My sister has been making granola for years but I never really paid attention to how she made it, only when it came time to eat it. It always smells so good (like there should be a homemade granola candle) So it got me thinking that I want my house to smell like a granola candle and decided to try my hand at making it. The outcome is the best healthy homemade granola recipe with heart-healthy nuts and seeds that I have ever tasted, (no offense, Sis!). Granola is yummy eaten alone but put it on top of something and […]

Homemade Fruit Smoothie Bowls – Healthy, Easy & Vegan

Smoothies are the perfect healthy and easy meal when you don’t have time to cook or you just want something healthy and refreshing (especially after working out). I like to make my own homemade fruit smoothie bowls, as the ones that you buy at places like Nectar and Juice It Up are expensive. I can also control the ingredients when they are made at home. Homemade Fruit Smoothie Bowls I used to make my own healthy fruit smoothies all the time as a meal replacement but I usually wasn’t satisfied after. I think it was because I was drinking my […]

Summer Vegetable Pasta Salad Recipe

There are so many different kinds of pasta salads both hot and cold. When I think of summer and backyard BBQs I always have pasta salad on the menu, and this summer vegetable pasta salad is one of my favorites. Not only is it healthy, but it also goes with a variety of main dishes. I like this cold pasta salad because there is no mayo so you don’t have to worry so much about spoiling  like you do with mayonnaise-based salads.  It’s also the perfect vegan pasta salad recipe as there is no mayo or cheese, just make sure […]

Best Mango Salsa Recipe

When I think about this recipe, I think of it more as a mango pico de gallo salsa recipe. To me, salsa is thinner than pico and my mango salsa is chunky just like the best homemade pico de gallo. I know there are all different kinds of recipes out there but I really just used what I already had on hand and this to me has become the best mango salsa recipe. I also love to go to farmers’ markets to get my organic fresh produce as I think the fruits and veggies taste better. I always start my […]

Homemade Pico De Gallo Recipe

  I started making Pico about six years ago when  I started eating healthier. I have always eaten healthily but I wanted to add more fruits and vegetables to my daily intake. At first, it was just something extra to have when I made tacos or nachos and now it is a must-have favorite that I eat a few times a week. I usually have it with Breakfast Tacos or mixed in homemade guacamole. Really,  pico goes with almost everything! The love and passion that I have for cooking makes this the best homemade pico de gallo recipe. I always […]
