Maple Cream Easter Eggs

Maple Cream Easter EggsEvery year when I was a kid, I could count on two things in my Easter basket – marshmallow eggs and maple cream eggs. Each served different purposes. The maple cream Easter eggs were my favorites and what I squealed over even more than finding plastic hidden eggs that held a dollar bill or a tiny toy. The marshmallow eggs were nothing I ever fancied and always found their way into the freezer for...

Salsa Casera Recipe – Super Hot and Delicious

Salsa Casera or House Salsa is one of the simplest and most flavorful salsas that brings a robust heat and a smokey flavor from the charred tomatoes and chile peppers. Beware! I like heat and so this recipe has one dried Scorpion pepper added to the mix. Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).

Sure, there are the big things like taking care of kids or parents, unexpected car and home repairs, dealing with awful work situations, but sometimes the littlest things feel the most difficult.

Tomatillo Habanero Salsa

I know what some of you think when you saw the chile pepper featured in our Tomatillo Habanero Salsa. I get the same way when I see Habaneros. But, I am here to tell you, “Girl, don’t be scurred!”

Trust me. In this recipe, the Habanero gently lifts the green tomatillos to a good place. The heat slowly rises from the back of your tongue but quickly mellows. The salsa is perfect by itself as a dip...

Main Course: Salsa Verde Cauliflower Chicken Casserole {low carb}

2015 was a good year for cauliflower. And why not? A cousin of the cabbage family, the white curds go far in flavor, and can be eaten raw, grilled, baked, sautéed, fried, boiled or steamed, and can transform into soups, pickles, bakes and even a pizza-like dough base. So 2016 looks like it’s going to be another great year for cauliflower.
