Today’s recipe is for Mango Apple Ceviche and it’s really good. It’s from the new Smitten Kitchen cookbook, which […]
Kale. How do you feel about kale? This following recipe is a super easy recipe for a simple kale salad. It requires minimal effort, but is quite filling and, without a doubt, healthy! I enjoy it as a main, but it could easily be a great accompaniment to a meal. This is a similar, but […]
I’ve left you for so long, I decided that my first recipe back better be killer. THIS recipe deserves all the praise. It may stop your heart, because it certainly isn’t healthy, but it is delicious.
