Berry shortcake is the unsung hero of summer desserts. I know they sell pre-packaged sponges for this dessert, and maybe it’s because drop biscuits slathered in butter and honey were a dinner-time staple growing up, but I’ve always preferred a biscuit-based shortcake to the store-bought cakes. This recipe is the perfect biscuit for the dessert you’ll want to enjoy all berry season long.
Not too long ago Trader Joe’s came out with another pretty incredible seasoning blend: Everything But The Elote Seasoning Blend. We had recently gotten really into couscous, so when I saw it on the new products shelf, I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it. This recipe takes only a matter of minutes and is full of citrusy, salty, chili goodness.
I know that the phrase “white privilege” can be triggering for a lot of white folks, but we have to be better. That requires acknowledging and understanding our privilege. It requires setting aside egos and feelings. It requires listening and learning how to be an ally, not just doing what we think it means to be one. It requires unlearning. It requires hearing from the voices that are too often unheard. So instead of another white perspective on allyship, I want to give you a list of sources to help you understand what it means to be actively anti-racist.
Cilantro, lime, and tequila combine to make a magical marinade for the easiest ever chicken dinner. How easy? Toss everything in a bag and let the chicken soak up the flavor while you mix up a margarita and kick back… I mean, the tequila’s already out, right?
We all have one thing in common: we all love carbs… we all love warm, cheesy carbs, and this easy cheesy biscuit recipe is exactly that: a peppery baking powder biscuit with melty cheese folded in its layers. Enter Cheddar Pepper Biscuits.
This cocktail gently whispers “summer” to me. It’s a little sweet, herbaceous, has a nice bite of ginger, and is gently bubbly. It’s the color of a summer dusk, and it’s so refreshing on a hot day.
These are without a doubt the BEST blueberry muffins. They’re easy to whip up, not too sweet, full of plump berries, and have a deliciously buttery, cinnamony crumble topping. They’re healthy (maybe?), so slather them with salted butter, pour a cup of coffee, and enjoy.
The thing with breakfast is that, as much as I love food, I just don’t have time to make breakfast before work. Given the choice between food and sleep, I choose sleep. These breakfast burritos are full of flavor and are so easy to grab in the morning. I also have a little secret to help you keep them nice and soft when you pop them in a microwave.
I’ll admit, I don’t shop at Sephora a ton. Still, I can’t resist a good sale. I know the “real” beauty bloggers shared their Sephora Spring Sale favorites over a week ago, I’m sharing mine today. It’s short (in comparison). It’s inexpensive and quality stuff, and it features products I use and recommend, and some I’m really excited to try.
Usually, spring means the beginning of the baseball season, beautiful weather, a little bit of traveling, and tons of fresh produce. This year however, spring is looking a little different and a lot more stressful thanks to COVID-19, so I did what I know how to do in stressful times: I turned lemons into cupcakes and baked some brightness into our days with my Spring Celebration Lemon Cupcakes.
