Two Ingredient Chocolate Mousse Recipe



Okay, so not only does this Chocolate Mousse take only two ingredients, but it also takes only two minutes to make.  And that's if you move at half speed.  I'm not even kidding.  I love this mousse because it comes together so easily, is super light and delicious, and you can stuff it into cute little mason jars to share with friends. 

Friends are important, yo.  Friends + chocolate are the best.  And friends + chocolate + wine are better than the best.  I'm going to take a time out here and do a PSA: don't forget about your friends.  Consider this a sign to call up and make plans with your bestie.  It's so easy to get wrapped up in life and family and let time get away.  So, here's the gauntlet.  Thrown.  Make this mousse, buy some wine, and have a friend date.  

You're welcome.

Pico de Gallo Recipe!



Can we just talk for a minute about how gorgeous fresh pico de gallo is?  I mean, I'm not sure whether to frame it or eat it.  Okay, that's a lie.  Eat, it's always eat.  But seriously, this stuff is beautiful.  And if you think it's nice to look at, just wait until you get a taste.  It practically sings.

I know I've been on a Mexican food kick lately and hope you can bear with me just a little bit longer (because yes, there's more coming).  I'm not sure what it is about summer that makes me want to throw salsa on everything and yell "Ole!" at the top of my lungs, but for real, it's a problem.  I mean, a good problem.  If ever there was a problem to have, it would be obscene amounts of fresh Mexican food and too much joy.

This pico is great with chips, on top of tacos, salads, over grilled chicken, or just by the spoonful.  It's light and fresh and YUM, YUM, YUM.



Stuffed Peppers {Mexican Style}



Stuffed Peppers {Mexican Style}



I am very angry at myself over these Stuffed Peppers. Also? I'm mad at everyone who's had stuffed peppers and not told me how completely fabulous they are. I have wasted YEARS of my life not eating stuffed peppers. Ridiculous. I hope these change your life like they've changed mine. Mexican Stuffed Peppers are joining the regular meal rotation in our home. Hoorah!

UPDATE 6/2015: I still adore these peppers.  Ahhhdore.  I originally posted this recipe in January of 2012 and here's what I've changed about it: NOTHING.  Because if it ain't broke, don't fix it!



Easy Guacamole.



Easy Guacamole.




This incredible simple Guacamole Recipe is easy to make and tastes delicious. It's a mild flavor that works great for a crowd, but can also be dressed up! Like it spicy? Add some chopped jalapeno! Have a fresh tomato hanging around? Throw it in! Cilantro lover? Go ahead, don't be shy! This guacamole is great on it's own, but also welcomes guests!

I didn't start liking guacamole until my 20's and now I feel like I owe it to the avocado to make reparations for my ridiculousness.  As such, I enjoy guacamole at every opportunity.  Mmmmm.  Tell me.  Is there something you didn't like until later in life that you're making up for now?  I can't be the only one who's constantly learning to love new foods!

Restaurant Style Roasted Tomato and Garlic Salsa Recipe



This Roasted Tomato and Garlic Salsa Recipe is pretty much brilliant. I have been craving restaurant style salsa for weeks now, and we even went out for some recently, but the overly eager waitress cleared it from our table before I even got any! (That's what happens when you feed the kids first). So today I gave in and made up a batch of delicious Restaurant Style Roasted Tomato and Garlic Salsa. I've been eating it like crazy this afternoon, and you can bet I'm going to dump it all over my enchiladas tonight!

Easy Au Jus. How to Make a Simple Au Jus Without Pan Drippings.








One of my absolute favorite sandwiches is the French Dip Sandwich (or in my house, the French Dip Crescent), but I tend to make it from roast beef lunch meat so I don't have any pan drippings to make Au Jus. So sad, right? No!!! Because I've come up with a fantastically simple Au Jus recipe that requires no pan drippings! And, bonus? You can freeze it in small batches to pull out whenever you're craving a tasty French Dip.
