Pickled Radishes are a pantry must have! They are great on salads, awesome to snack on and are perfect in tacos! My husband and I have a plot at our community garden and we planted these radishes back in early december and a few days ago they were perfect for pickling!
Well my friends Strawberry season is finally upon us, and that makes this girl one very happy camper! I LOVE fresh strawberries! I feel a Forrest Gump moment coming on with all the ways I love strawberries. Strawberry Shortcake, strawberry waffles, strawberry crepes, strawberry jam…okay, you get my point.
Sometimes the best desserts are your child hood favorites! Lately I’ve been brain storming all my favorite child hood sweets and I’ve been obsessed with recreating them in a new and modern ways. So to being this little series of mine I started with my favorite candy bar, Snickers! At my parents house my mom will have candy jars filled with snickers minis and I usually eat the whole jar by the time I leave. I don’t know why but I love Snickers minis, maybe its because they have more surface area of chocolate than the regular bars. But I am thinking there is legal crack shoved in them that causes me to acquire such a massive addiction.
I recently bought the most beautiful mangos at Whole Foods a few days ago. I bought them when they were under ripe so that I could eat them later. Unfortunately with my cold, I have not been in the kitchen at all lately. My head and ear is just killing me. But this morning I was able to muster up the ability to get to my juicer. Something that my body definitely needs right now is fresh juice. So I threw in all my beautiful mangos that were now a few days past prime, but perfect for juicing along with the all the berries I had in the fridge. I need all the antioxidants I can get right now! This juice turned out to be so beautiful. Then texture of the mangos gave for a velvety juice. I highly recommend juicing your mangos, you will love it. The texture is also very soothing for my sore throat right now, it sorta sticks to it and coats it in a sort of mango blanket. So if you are in the need for an antioxidant power house juice, give this one a try. Its jam packed with berries yet takes you on a tropical vacation with the mangos!
So my hubby and I recently got home from a much needed relaxing vacation in Maui, Hawaii! I was really looking forward to this little getaway because we hadn’t been back to Maui since we got married there 5 years ago. Amongst all the snorkeling and paddle boarding we did we also managed to squeeze in some really, no wait REALLY, good eats!
