Spicy Tilapia Ceviche

I love ceviche but don’t get the chance to eat it very often. I had been dreaming of it ever since we went on the Miami Culinary tour during Blogher Food so I dragged Mathlete to the Mexican place that I usually order it from. They have the most amazing shrimp ceviche. Well, #sadpandaface, they don’t have it anymore! The only ceviche they have has scallops and I really dislike scallops. So, I decided I was going to make it at home and made spicy tilapia ceviche for dinner one evening. 

Spicy ceviche made with fresh tilapia and peppers.

Strawberry Basil Teagarita

Almost every Friday, another family and I hit the local Mexican restaurant for margaritas. Both of our schedules have changed a bit so we haven’t been able to make it there as often and have opted for food and cocktails at home instead. Jose Cuervo makes a delicious ready-to-serve margarita and they just recently introduced the Iced Teagarita. It is an yummy mix of a classic lime flavored margarita and iced tea. It is an amazingly refreshing cocktail on a hot summer night!

I have been adding fresh berries to my iced tea drinks recently so I decided to combine that new treat with the Jose Cuervo drink and make a strawberry basil Teagarita.

Oh, strawberry and basil together are so good. What a great idea to combine it a teagarita! #CuervoTeagarita #spon

5 Perfect Lunch Salads with #DixieQuicktakes

Lunch options in or near my office are very limited. Like a single cafe with boring sandwiches kind of limited. So, I like to take my lunch as much as possible. Not only does it give me lots more options but it also helps me save money.  Now that the weather is warmer, I am definitely focused on salads more but tend to avoid lettuce based salads because they don’t hold up very well in travel. I was thinking about my lunch menu for upcoming weeks and came up with five perfect lunch salads.

These are five awesome ideas for lunch salads plus a great way to transport them.

Red Wine Slushies

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you know I am a wine lover. There are few pleasures that I enjoy more than sitting down to relax with a glass of wine in the evening. On a free weekend, you will most definitely find us at one of the local vineyards with a picnic. Some days, though, even a glass of crisp white wine is just not enough to cool me down. After visiting a local place that served red wine slushies {think a slurpee with wine}, I knew I had to learn to make them at home for those super hot days.

An adult slurpee made with red wine?! I am so making these for the weekend.

11 Delicious Milkshakes

So, we had a brief bit of amazing weather over the last weekend where it was actually cool enough for a light sweater in the evenings. I loved every minute of it.  Of course, being summer, it didn’t last long and we are right back to super hot temperatures. When the weather gets that way, I crave cool drinks and icy treats for dessert. Milkshakes are one of my favorite sweet treats during summer and I’ve found 11 delicious milkshakes that you have to try!

Summer months are here and I am totally dreaming of the beach.  Well, at least of the relaxation that going to the beach bring. I can skip the sand and jellyfish. We don’t go on our beach vacation until next month so I decided to bring the beach to me with beachy seashell wreath.

Bring the beach home with a few craft store supplies and a beachy seashell wreath.

Thin Mints® Ice Cream Pie

SoFab Disclosure

Every January, our house gets so excited because it is Girl Scout cookie time.  By the end of the month, we are all out of the delicious cookies and it is sad faces all around.  While shopping in Walmart the other day, I discovered THE BEST thing in the check out aisle. NESTLÉ® CRUNCH® Girl Scouts® Candy Bars which totally allows us to get our Girl Scouts® cookie fix even though it isn’t cookie season.  I totally grabbed all of the Thin Mints® bars they had in the aisle and brought them home. We usually freeze our cookies to get them nice and cold but I decided to make Thin Mints® Ice Cream Pie with the candy bars instead.

This dessert is the BEST thing for summer. Love the idea of creating Thin Mint flavored ice cream pies. #Cookies2Crunch #shop #cbias

Sausage and Pepper One Pot Pasta Recipe

In my dreams, summer is a time to slow down and relax.  Days are spent lounging by the pool and nights are spent with delicious dinners on the deck. I’m a good dreamer, right? Reality is far different around here. Gymnastics practices are longer, camp carpools are added into the mix and getting dinner on the table becomes so much harder.  Oh, add the heat into that mix and turning on an oven or stove and cooking just loses its luster. That is where the beauty of something like this sausage and pepper one pot pasta comes into play.  It is one pot and a meal that cooks in under thirty minutes. Sound too goo to be true? Well,  you definitely aren’t dreaming :)

One pot is all this recipe takes to make an amazing pasta dish the whole family will love.
