Ah!! Summer! The longer days, the ripe trees and berries in all it’s abundance. This is the season to indulge yourself in everything berry, strawberry to be exact.
No summer is complete without having strawberry shortcake at least once throughout the season. It’s simply delicious and fun to make, instant smiles happen when you plate this up for your loved ones. Not to be confused with the equally delicious cake version, but we’re going old school style with this classic dessert. A delicious made from scratch biscuit will have you feeling like you been baking for years!
I’m quite proud about this strawberry shortcake recipe. It took me so many trials and error to finally get a delicious, tender, and flavorful biscuit. I couldn’t be more delighted to share this with you all.
The biscuit has a nice subtle sweetness, filled with sweetened strawberries that creates a juicy sauce to drizzle for an eye pleasing experience. And of course theirs freshly made whipped cream that’s way to simple to make, so skip the cool whip and get your hand mixer out.
Oh Chicken! How I love you, you’re so flavorful and easy to cook. I can literally find 100 ways to cook you and never get tired of eating you. But you absolutely make me swoon when you’re fried— especially when you’re golden brown and crunchy, bursting with flavor!
Somebody loves their chicken! And truly, who doesn’t like fried chicken from time to time?? Even vegans sneak a piece of fried chicken every once in a while🍗 (your secrets safe with me friend).
But the real secret I will share is this fried chicken recipe. You won’t need a five dollar box after making this chicken! Well, at least for that particular day.
This Bird is the word and making this “Chipotle-Cilantro Chicken”, can’t get no easier than this!

In life, I believe there is a time when your body must reset. Whether it’s going vegan, juicing for a week straight, or adding a copious amount of fresh vegetables and herbs to your diet. It’s a natural necessary adjustment and my “Copy Cat” version of Zea’s famous Mediterranean Hummus Dip, is sure to get you snacking in a healthy and delicious direction.
Hummus have become a popular go-to snack and with so many ready- made versions available, they’re not hard to find in stores. My version of hummus takes an ordinary store-bought hummus and transforms it into restaurant quality hummus dip!
Who knew by adding fresh ingredients such as:
- Roasted Garlic Cloves
- Chopped Red Onion
- Diced Tomato’s
- Lemon Juice
Can be so sophisticated?!

Salad season is upon us in a big way and if you’re like me I love-making the most out of it. A salad is not limited to just lettuce and tomato, fruits can be a spectacular salad hence making it a fruit salad.

For the dressing I use one lime squeezed, half of a naval orange, agave nectar, cardamom. Simple and quite luscious.
This salad is ideal for any sort of gathering. Think a wedding, brunch gathering, a tea party, or in a big bowl at home on a Saturday morning. Tasty all by itself, but even more delightful as a topping on a nice slice of cake! Continue Reading…
