Make this easy homemade mole and drizzle it on whatever you’d like.

I recently realized I didn’t have a traditional mole from scratch on my blog, and decided it was time to make an easy homemade mole to post here. Does the word ‘easy’ really accompany the word ‘mole’ ever? It is now, I just joined the two. I should actually say it’s kinda easy homemade mole. Laugh if you will, but you won’t be laughing at the final result… you’ll be saying HOLY MOLE!

Soy Chorizo Potato Tacos

Soy Chorizo Potato Tacos

Soy Chorizo Potato Tacos are vegan based, but if you add cheese they become vegetarian bites. The choice is yours!

I think about soy chorizo potato tacos and my mouth waters. They are a total treat in my house and a serious indulgence. It’s like a holiday meal on a Tuesday night, except no real reason to celebrate except for TACOS! My husband requests them casually all the time hoping I’ll say yes and just start frying the shells in preparation.

Berry Poppy Seed Pancakes cooked in Tuxton Homes nonstick frypan

I wake up with breakfast on my mind, and today I thought it would be extra cute to make Berry Poppy Seed Pancakes. Imagining the colors of the pancakes would be so aesthetically pleasing against my new Concentrix 2-Piece Open Nonstick Frypan Set from Tuxton Home. That’s a crazy way to plan a meal but I’m absolutely giddy over the blush pink frypan set.

Upside-down Strawberry Shortcake Cobbler: Exactly what it sounds like. A cobbler served like a strawberry shortcake served upside down!

I’m a woman that loves staying in for the night playing fantastic music and eating delicious food. A few weeks ago I got an advanced copy of Rockabye Baby! Lullaby Renditions of Juanes (which is out May 3rd on CMH Label Group). The album features gorgeous, lullaby versions of Juanes best-known and beloved cuts. I know the album is intended for babies, but it is so easy on the ears and really plays to the baby soul in me.

Roasted Asparagus Spring Salad made with homemade croutons and dressing.

Roasted Asparagus Spring Salad: Is the type of salad you wish you could eat everyday.

Are you one of those people that never want to make salad for whatever reason? The thought of making salad RARELY appeals to me, because I don’t think it’s going to be satisfying enough as a meal. Then the second it’s done and I’m eating it, I can’t believe how delicious it is and promise myself to eat a beautiful salad as such EVERYDAY! Ahhhh the vicious salad cycle.

Vegan Brownie Oreo Cupcakes

Vegan Brownie Oreo Cupcakes

Vegan brownie oreo cupcakes are perfect for a plant-based birthday party treat or any special ocassion.

One of my dearest girlfriend Monique is vegan. For her birthday (April 17th) this year she called and said to me “I don’t want you to buy me anything for my birthday, all I want is for you to make me a vegan dessert.” I said “Do you have something in particular in mind?” She said “Nope, just make me something for my birthday.” The first thing I thought was vegan brownie oreo cupcakes.
