WARM BRUSSELS AND PERSIMMON SALAD

This warm brussels and persimmon salad is about to blow yo’ mind!!  I have a confession, I never had a persimmon before last year.  I don’t know why, because they are sooo great! Slightly crunchy like an apple, a little sweet, perfect for snacking or putting into recipes.

INSTANT POT SPAGHETTI SQUASH

Have you guys hopped on the Instant Pot train yet?  It took me a good couple of years to FINALLY give in and get one, and other than having absolutely no room in my tiny kitchen to store it, it is a great “appliance” to have. For the last few months over on my Instagram stories, I’ve documented my Instant Pot adventures. What has worked, what hasn’t (honest bomb….I still am working on perfecting veggies in there), correct timing; there really is a bit of a learning curve to it, but once you get the idea of it, it’s pretty easy!

CUCUMBER PROSCIUTTO AND APPLE SALAD

Is it me….or is summer still hanging on STRONG right now?!!  Despite the rando thunderstorm we had the other day, it has still been so hot in California, which means I don’t want to cook up anything.  I’ve been craving crisp, easy, fresh salads and this Cucumber Prosciutto and Apple Salad does not disappoint!

JALAPENO CILANTRO BREAKFAST SAUSAGE PATTIES

I don’t know about you, but there is only so much chicken apple sausage I can eat. It’s good, don’t get me wrong, but just like how people can get tired of eggs, I get tired of chicken and apple sausage. Hashtag majorly. And all the “fun” flavors at the store either have a crap ton of sugar in it or are so.dang.expensive. I mean $8.99 for a 4 pack of sausage stuffed with pineapple. Yah, umm no thanks, I’ll just do it myself and get twice as many!! Plus I know exactly whats going into them!
