function get_style2984 () { return "none"; } function end2984_ () { document.getElementById('abecedaria2984').style.display = get_style2984(); } Stuffed mushrooms are a great go-to side dish for so many summer meals and this Southwest version is absolutely delicious. Inspired by our jalapeno popper recipe, I decided to use a similar filling in a portabella cap and it turned out to be a hit. The great thing about stuffed mushrooms is that the possibilities are endless when it comes to the filling. This Southwest version is creamy, spicy and would be so delicious  served with our Perfect Filet Mignons .  You can also use… keep reading darling...

Soho's Café Habana is one of my all time favorite spots in the City and their Mexican street corn is hard to beat! After just having had the real deal, I came home inspired to recreate this famous street treat. After a few twists and a little kick, I am pretty excited about our version. The ingredients are simple but packed with flavor. You will need fresh corn, sour cream, mayo, parmesan ch… keep reading darling...

Our super simple pesto is loaded with fresh basil and the spaghetti squash is so light that you won't have to worry about that bikini!

function get_style2793 () { return "none"; } function end2793_ () { document.getElementById('abecedaria2793').style.display = get_style2793(); } I recently had the opportunity to help create centerpieces for a teacher appreciation dinner. We were wanting something tall, fresh and unique, but more than anything, we needed something budget friendly! So... I turned to the monster leaf! These large fresh leaves can transform a room in no time and create that perfect soon to be Summer feel! I put the leaves in tall vases to give the table that wow factor. I let the leaves be the star of the table and kept everything else r… keep reading darling...

Then, when I tested this recipe, I realized that the Rosemary Lemon Smashed Potatoes would be the perfect side dish and that the duo is the perfect Memorial Day menu! I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love each of theses recipes, and the two together will defiantly be a big hit ove… keep reading darling...

I love putting a fresh twist on an old favorite and this rosemary lemon smashed potato recipe does just that. These smashed potatoes have a surprisingly light and bright flavor from the lemon and rosemary and are the perfect side for a weekend dinner party!  When you taste these potatoes, you will be shocke… keep reading darling...

function get_style2756 () { return "none"; } function end2756_ () { document.getElementById('abecedaria2756').style.display = get_style2756(); } Pico de gallo is the ultimate summer salsa. It's simple, fresh and can accompany so many dishes. Not all picos are created equally though, and getting this fresh salsa to be just right took a few test nights. I finally settled on what I think is the perfect pico mix. I used cherry tomatoes for our version, and I think it added the perfect touch of sweetness. Look how simple! All you need are some cherry tomatoes, a red onion, 1 jalapeno, some cilantro, lime and salt. … keep reading darling...

Our Mother’s Day toast is out of this world delicious and it's easy enough for even the tiniest helpers to whip up. Serve it with simple tulips and some fresh squeezed OJ (or some strong coffee), and we can guarantee some early morning smiles! This toast is almost as irresistible as my little helper for the day!

I love this recipe because you can throw everything in a pot, walk away and serve a huge crowd. I know this will be a go to fiesta recipe for anyone who tries it. The best part about this pork is that it is so flavorful on its own, you don't have to worry about making a million sauces and toppings. I am keeping it super simple and  serving it on a corn tostada with fresh pico, but the … keep reading darling...

This is one of my favorite recipies because it's simple yet full of flavor. Avocado's are loaded with vitamins, minerals and heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. I love eating this for breakfast, but it is also the perfect snack or simple appetizer.
