You want to try something totally refreshing?

This simple 3-ingredient, hand-squeezed juice is just that!

A few weeks ago while I was visiting my family, my dad made this for breakfast and I fell in love with this blend of citruses! Its tangy and sweet and pure juice. It’s perfect for breakfast but also makes a refreshing beverage with dinner or any time of the day for that matter. We enjoyed every bit of this down to the last drop.  Continue reading “Fresh Squeezed Citrus Drink {+Pretzel&Percy}”

So yesterday we had the fun opportunity of having some friends over to teach me how to make authentic Mexican Charro Beans with Rice and the most delicious homemade tortillas. Of course the fellowship was sweet too! I learned so much just from watching Mrs. Trevino & her daughters prepare dinner.

Or if words concerning breast feeding gross you out- this might not be the blog post for you since its not your typical food article.  Continue reading “To the mom with a new baby”

I love that this curry starts out with so many fresh vegetables. 

My sister-in-law Renae, made a big pot of this curry for the family the other night…because she’s sweet like that! =) It was so good I’ve been craving it ever since. I only strayed from her recipe a tiny bit by adding a potato for volume but thats totally optional. Continue reading “Best Curry Ever {Authentic}”

Gratitude Monday

After re-reading my last blog post {concerning hospitality} I realized how ungrateful it sounded. In an effort to be ‘real’ about life and share the exact thoughts that have been going through my head the last few weeks, it sounded much more negative on paper than I ever meant it to be. True, this house is a work in project and probably will be for many years but its become HOME. So, today I thought I’d share a few specific things about our place that I’m thankful for.  Continue reading “Gratitude Monday”
