These are the bomb-diggity, and are soooo totally easy it’s not even fair. Okay… I admit, they’re probably not the mosssst healthy breakfast option, but HEY, you gotta live a little. And we’re using coconut oil, almond milk, and real corn kernels to make cornbread muffins as healthy as they can possibly be!

Here’s what you’ll need:
♥ 1 box Trader Joe’s Cornbread Mix
♥ 1 egg
♥ 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
♥ 1/2 can Trader Joe’s whole kernel corn
♥ 3/4 cup almond milk

Mix it all together! Seriously, just throw it in a bowl and stir it all up.

NYC Pepper Margarita

pepper margarita

I’m in the land of unparalleled drink & indulgence (**aka NYC!) for a few days, so what better way to start the weekend than with a signature Serrano Pepper Margarita?!

These have been around for a while, but my first time having one (someone tell me why I waited this long?!) was today! Not only is this a super light cocktail, but it’s delicious and really not thaaat bad for ya! Plus, the serrano peppers add a crazy dimension of flavor. If you want to get extra artsy, blend some strawberries in to taste!

They’re so great that we brought the party home and kept mixing margs all afternoon.

Here’s what you need per glass:

  • 1 Serrano pepper
  • 2-3 strawberries, if desired (I like mine better without)
  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup
  • 2 oz soda wata
  • 1 oz lemon/lime juice
  • 2 oz tequila
  • 2-3 large icecubes

Blend the concoction (I like to blend all contents and add in ice afterwards). Slice a lime or two for visual effect & enjoy (responsibly)!

Surprise, Surprise!

Life is full of surprises! Saturday afternoon, my family and I threw a surprise birthday party for my Grandma! Close friends and family gathered to celebrate this inspiring and beautiful woman! She was absolutely shocked and so utterly excited! The highlight of the day was when I asked her how old she was, and she responded with, “old enough to be your Grandma!” Best.Answer.Ever. Overall, it was a wonderful day with the 5 most important G’s… Good Friends, Good Family, Good Food, Good Fun, and GRANDMA! Cheers!
