      • Tortilla Salad Recipe

        Posted in Recipes
        I got hooked on this "salad" idea when I first tried something similar at Rio Cafe. They make their own tortillas and all the toppings there are pretty bomb. We just can't really make it there that often, because it's far from us; so for a quick dinner, I like to make these type of salads. If you follow me on Snapchat @momsdish you've seen me make it on videos. You can always change up the...
      • Memorial Day Ocean Shores 2016

        Posted in Blog
        Now that I am back, I am playing a bit of a catch up. I know this post is way overdue, but I really wanted to share a bit of what we've been up to. This is from our trip to the Ocean Shores on a Memorial Day weekend. We stayed at Oyhut Bay cottage for 3 nights and we had a blast. The weather wasn't perfect, it did rain one of the days and was windy on another, but we still had a blast. Oyhut Bay...

          I have the perfect, refreshing dessert for you. I don't like baking during the summer as much as I do during the cold days, so this makes a perfect treat for the summers. I love the creamy layer of jello in combination with raspberries. You don't have to stick with the same fruit, it's up to you what fruits you want to use. BTW - you can also use this fruit sauce for pancakes. No need to buy the...
        • New Orleans Trip 2016

          Posted in Blog
          Hello :) Yes I am still alive, well, barely. We finally listed our house for sale and in a process of moving to our new place. As you probably know, I still work full time, with 3 hour of commute each day. This all adds up to no time for a break. But I love this busy schedule, it keeps me in check and I never have a moment to be bored. My job offered me to go to New Orleans to one of the events...
          • Chocolate Raspberry Granola Recipe

            Posted in Recipes
            Lately I have been hunting for chocolate granolas with berries, but I couldn't find what I wanted. But, you know there's a solution for that, called DIY ;) Add a bit of chocolate flavor in combination of raspberries, and you have a great combo. Great quality granola also can cost a lot. This recipe is quite simple to make and it'll save you a buck or two. I keep it stored in a sealed container....
