Who doesn’t love spicy salsa?? I don’t meat the tomato medley non-sense you eat at restaurants with chips, I mean my boys started eating that at the age of 2! I mean authentic. Mexican. Salsa. Here’s a semi-sweet yet super hot carrot habanero salsa, an all time fave of ours…enjoy with moderation(😉)

**Salsa de zanahoria y habanero**

*warning: if you suffer from heart burn please have TUMS handy after eating this sauce*

You will need:

8 oz or approx 13-15 orange habanero peppers

1/2 lb baby carrots

Cooking oil, your favorite type will do although I recommend canola oil

Salt to taste

Fill a deep sauce pan with water about halfway

Bring water to a boil and add carrots and peppers

Boil on medium/high heat for about 25 minutes or until carrots are soft

*when boiling any type of peppers leave the stems to avoid itchy throat*

Once ready, remove pan from heat and shock the carrots and peppers with ice cold water.

Remove the stems from peppers and add both carrots and peppers to your blender with 1-2 cups of canola oil depending on the desired consistency

Add in salt at your discretion.

*Please don’t blend peppers, oil and carrots right out the heat of the stove, this will cause pressure to build in your blender and the lid may pop off causing a big mess and possible burns*

Good morning loves, I want to share this amazing fat burning green smoothie with everyone trying their best to keep up with their New Years resolution. Don’t give up….WE can do it 😉

If eating healthier or becoming healthier was one of your resolutions or goals this year, I hope to make it a little bit easier by sharing some of my favorite smoothie recipes with you all throughout the year as I myself navigate my way to a healthier self. I love green smoothies because they are a tasty and a super quick way of consuming a natural, raw, healthy, vitamin and antioxidant filled meal…that’s right a meal. Consume at minimum 24-32 oz though if you plan in replacing a meal with a smoothie. They are perfect in-between snacks as well.

For this smoothie you will need:

1/2 grapefruit

2.5 cups of spinach leafs

1 stalk of celery (yes, the leaves are edible and only add to te healthy-mess of his drink)

1 green pear

1/2 of a lemon’s juice

1 tsp. Ginger

Coconut sugar (what I used) or stevia to taste if you want to skip the slightly bitter grapefruit taste.

1/2 – 1 cup water

This will make approximately 28-35 oz, I like drinking most of it first thing in the morning and saving about 9-12 oz for an in-between-meals snack.

Happy almost turkey day! There are only 2 days left until Thanksgiving day and I’m literally running around like a turkey with its head cut off.

Over the years the stress that comes with holiday planning seems to be more intense than the last. Which is why I want to share with you my go-to drink for the “fall-iday” season to ease up the stress of  holiday hosting and planning. I love this simple drink because 1. Reminds me of coffee and well…coffee.  2.It’s quick without too much hassle. 3.Did I mention it reminds me of coffee?

What’s YOUR favorite Fall-iday drink?

You will need:

Irish cream liquor

Ground cinnamon


Pumpkin spice coffee


You will want to brew your coffee, I used Pumpkin Spice coffee but you can literally use any flavored coffee you like.

Then you will add in 1-2 shots of Baileys or Irish cream flavored liquor

Top off with allspice and ground cinnamon.

You can serve this chilled or hot.

Fire up your grills and bust out the corns! Nothing reminds me of growing up in Mexico like street corn, and sure, there are plenty of places around town, hundreds even, but only a couple have tasted JUST like the ones in I had as a little girl growing up in Mexico. Plus, I’m not always in the mood to drive all the way out and pay $5 for ONE corn.  Considering that we’re able (sometimes) to find the right Mexican ingredients, I’d say this is a VERY close version to the authentic Mexican street corn. Enjoy!

I used to think green smoothies had to taste bad in order to be healthy…although some are, I slowly learned that they can be healthy and delicious at the same time with a little bit of creativity and research; To you know, learn the healing and powerful properties of various fruits, veggies and seeds. With trial and error I’ve become a bit of an expert in avoiding MOST of the bitterness of green smoothies because well…yuk. Kudos to all those who like a bit of bitterness in their taste buds.

Here’s one of my all time favorite nutritious and delicious green smoothie recipes, I hope you enjoy it.

1/4 cup chopped celery

1/2 cut peeled and sliced cucumber

1 nickel size slice of ginger root

1 cup spinach
