Tropical Guacamole

I have probably mentioned before that my four year old is totally obsessed with guacamole. If you have met us in person, you know it is quite the spectacle. He will eat guacamole {or more recently just plain avocados} every day if given the change. I love guacamole myself but not quite that much! I’ve been trying to change it up for him from time to time and recently made a tropical guacamole that he absolutely loved!

Jalapeno Kale Dip for Cinco de Mayo

We’re huge Mexican food fans in our house. Seriously, my kid eats guacamole by the truck load and we have at least one Mexican inspired dish on our menu every week. So, of course, we are super excited about Cinco de Mayo. The only bummer is that it is a Tuesday which means I won’t have time to put together a lot of stuff for our celebration. Thankfully, I know where to get delicious taquitos and tamales. Then, all I have to do is make a few delicious sauces and toppings so my family can make their own taquito platter. One of our favorite sauces is jalapeno kale dip which my kids think is just avocado ranch {and I am not tell them any different since the word kale would instantly get a disgusted face and rejection}.

Chicken and Vegetable Coconut Curry

Quick weeknight meals are a must in our house so I am so excited to partner with Imagine® Organic Culinary Simmer Sauces for this post to show you how a great meal can be made in under 15 minutes. As always, while I may have been compensated for this post, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

Weeknights are crazy in our household. I try to skip take out and limit eating out to once per week so having easy to make dishes that come together quickly are a must. On top of that, they actually need to taste good too so my family will eat them. That can be a tall order unless we want to eat spaghetti every night! This chicken and vegetable coconut curry is perfect for the times when I need something on the table fast that also tastes great.

Chicken and Vegetable Coconut Curry that is ready super fast and is so delicious. I can't wait to try it.

Guest Blogger: Cereal Muffins

Cereal Muffins

No cool story behind these muffins. I woke up one morning and was bored with my breakfast options. I wanted cinnamon chip pancakes, but… eh. I didn’t want oatmeal because no doctoring in the world could get me to choke it down. I kinda wanted cereal, but like Chinese food, I eat it and then I’m hungry 20 minutes later. Then I thought about muffins, but I didn’t want the usual muffin suspects and I wasn’t in the mood to blow 400 calories on cinnamon coffee cake muffins either. A slight dilemma.
