Some of my favorite meals are the simple ones. Black bean and mango tostadas are at the top of our list when it comes to easy dinner recipes. This meatless meal is loaded with fresh flavors and hits the spot every time.

Strawberry Popsicles


Popsicles are the perfect summer treat. You don’t have to turn on the oven and heat up the house to make popsicles. Homemade popsicles are the best too! They are easy, fun, and the flavor options are endless. We recently made strawberry popsicles-my all...

The summer is flying by, I can’t believe it is August already. We are still enjoying the hot summer sun and temperatures in Utah. To cool down, I made a special beverage, strawberry limeade. It is very refreshing and so simple to make.
