Organic Smoothie Ingredients

It’s June ALREADY?!?!?!  Wow, I can’t believe how fast this year is flying. Summer is here and that means…..Smoothie’s! (Well if you live in Florida it’s also synonymous with living on the outskirts of hell…weather wise). Wherever you live, you probably drink more smoothies in the summer than you do in any other season, so it makes sense that this month Organic Girl Greens are promoting smoothies with the “Drink Your Greens” Contest!

To enter the Organic Girl Drink Your Greens Contest, snap a photo of a smoothie (or juice) that you have created with one of their good clean greens, include the photo of the clamshell of greens and hashtag #drinkurgreens.  You can do this on Instagram @iloveorganicgirl.  I would post it on Facebook and Tweet it as well…but thats just me!

The winner will receive a new Vitamix® blender and ….are you ready?   FREE Organic Girl Greens for a YEAR!!!!  Sweeeeeeet!  As I am lucky enough to be a recipe creator/blogger for Organic Girl, I can’t win….but YOU CAN! …

Sweet Treats

IMG_5754

Valentine’s Day. Oh how it irks me. Yes, I am single, and generally always have been on this particular commercial holiday, but this year, while still single, I have my own funny little valentine.  He’s a bit short, won’t be taking me to dinner or buying me flowers and has a pretty early bedtime, but it’s all good because when he smiles or giggles my stone cold heart just melts and I become an advocate for love!

So what better way to show him my love but to make Rice Krispy Treats and let him help? Chocolate Rice Krispy treats no less.  Actually Chocolate Coconut Rice Krispy Treats! Hey….go big or go home.  They are a fun treat, that is Gluten Free and one of those “recipes” thats pretty difficult to mess up. Plus it makes the little monkey’s happy AND satisfies Zia’s chocolate craving to boot so it’s an all around win-win….

Let Them Eat Cake

IMG_4562

This past Saturday night was Mama Sis’s birthday.

I asked her what she would like for her birthday dinner.  Going out is not an easy feat with the monkey’s so a dinner at home was a given.  Nonna was going to be out of town so I had the run of her apartment and kitchen…thank god….because sis requested my Mexican Fiesta Fish Taco Dinner. I LOVE this meal.  Guests always love this meal. I am good at this meal.  But….. it takes a LOT of time to prepare.  I am working on the blog post to share some of the recipes for my Baja Fish Tacos, homemade Baja Sauce, Tomatillo Salsa Verde, Jicama salad, Guacamole….you can see there a lot of elements going on!

Today however, I am going to talk about the cake.  Mama sis loves Chocolate.  I mean who doesn’t like chocolate right?  I love it as well.  The difference between us though is in the fact that I can have chocolate sitting around, in the freezer or apothecary jars  (it looks pretty)…
