Lightened Up Enchilada Pasta

Mexican Pasta Time!!
For this dish I am combining two of my favorite cuisines: Mexican & Italian. Well, the only Italian part is that there is pasta in it, but whatever. You get my point. You can find enchilada pasta all over pinterest these days, but I thought I would bring you a lighter version so you don't have to worry about your waistline.

Tropical (Pup)sicles

Pup recipe alert! I couldn't help but sharing one of my new favorite summer pup recipes with all of you! Meatball has loved all of the pupsicles I made for her last summer. Basically if you add any fruit your pup likes ( except grapes) you can't really go wrong. The other reason why I love serving Meatball pupsicles is that it takes her forever to eat them. That means we can eat dinner in peace. If any of you have a pug you understand.

Oreo Explosion Ice Cream Cake

So Sunday was National Ice Cream Day. What better way than to celebrate with an ice cream cake! It also happened to be my Hubby’s birthday and this amazing cookie explosion cake was his only request.

Healthy Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I'm sorry. Did I just make a bread with NO BUTTER or OIL? Yup. I did. Was it super moist and totally amazing? YES! This is actually a similar rendition to a recipe I have made before for coconut banana bread. I have been on a chocolate chip kick lately so I of course added them to the recipe.You can also use carob chips if you would like! This recipe is perfect if you have a couple of old bananas sitting on your counter that you are wondering what to do with. Don't throw them away! They are perfect for banana bread. The browner the banana, the better.

Taking a Moment for Meso

So I am taking a break today from writing about food to partake in a campaign  to spread awareness about mesothelioma - a cancer caused only by asbestos exposure with everyone. The goal is just to make people more aware of the cancer and to understand where it comes from. If the entire campaign can save one life, it is all worth it! Please read on to understand some facts about mesothelioma.

What causes Meso? Are you at risk?

What are the symptoms?
