I’ve made this guacamole countless times since discovering the recipe over one year ago. I’ve made it for a bunch of teenage girls, a big group of boys, for my family, extended family, and for parties. Everyone has always said that it is either ‘super good’ or the ‘BEST guac.’ they’ve had. Despite the simplicity

My mom has been making this 7 UP Grilled Chicken Recipe for years. It’s a definite family favorite. Somehow I forgot about this gem of a recipe. Just last month we went to my parents for a big family dinner. My mom and dad had made and grilled 7 UP chicken and I couldn’t
My mom has been making this Strawberry Dream Cake for over 40 years. Our family, extended family, and friends all LOVE it! Whenever we are asked which cake we want for our birthday or parties 9 times out of 10 we all request the Strawberry Dream Cake. Even though it does take a little time

Some French friends came to stay with me. They were on a month-long road trip and I think rather sick of fast food, so they asked me if they could make dinner for us. I usually like to entertain, but I was very excited to taste some authentic french food…I didn’t regret it. They made us Honey
Typically I hate protein shakes. They’ve pretty much all nearly made me gag. No joke. I think the only one that I’ve enjoyed was laden in sugar and calories (i.e. the Gold’s Gym Peanut butter shake). Not only did it have chocolate syrup as the second ingredient but it was over 600 calories. It makes
This cream cheese frosting recipe has been in my the family for over 50 years. It’s super creamy, lightly rich, and has a great balance of flavors. We’ve made it for hundreds of people and they always remark on how amazing it is. I was about to call this, ‘The Best Frosting’… until I tasted
My mom has been making this lasagna for over 30 years. Every time she or anyone in our family makes it, everyone who tastes it says that it is, ‘the BEST lasagna’ they have tried. Then they usually ask for the recipe which we also give them (we don’t do secret recipes in our family).
Today I needed a quick yet filling lunch. I was in the mood for Mexican so I tried something new. I took a standard cheese tortilla and added to it. The results were what I term a ‘5 star Mexican dish in 3 minutes! Garantizado (Guaranteed). 1- Put cheese on tortilla, sprinkle with one or
I was a waitress at one of the most exclusive hotels in the world. I met many celebrities; Bill Gates, Katy Perry, Anne Hathaway, Susan Somers, Russell Brand, world leaders, famous entrepreneurs, etc. Each hotel room cost on average $2,500 a night and with gratuity, dinning, room service etc. it ended up being about $4,000
Recently my son got the flu. He couldn’t keep anything down until I put him strictly on Pedialyte. I had tried coconut water multiple times but he wouldn’t drink it plain. Coconut water (not to be mistaken for coconut milk) is a much healthier electrolyte replacement than Pedialyte and safe for babies and kids.
