Crock Pot Sweet Pork

Crock Pot Sweet Pork

This slow cooked, shredded, Sweet Pork is to die for. It’s sweet and spicy and perfect to put on anything and everything, or just eat plain. This is a copycat recipe from the popular Mexican restaurant, Cafe Rio. They make sweet pork and put it […]

Salsa Verde

Salsa Verde

I created this Salsa Verde for the sole purpose of using inside my Cafe Rio Copycat Sweet Pork Burritos. However, it is delicious and works well to use as an enchilada sauce or to simply eat with chips. Whatever you might use salsa for, you […]

Avocado Veggie Wraps

Avocado Veggie Wraps

  When I was a kid, I really hated avocados. Not as much as I hated Salmon, but pretty close. They were just, weird. And green. And mushy. But then one day I grew up and moved away from home. I started trying things like Bacon Avocado Burgers and Turkey Bacon Avocado sandwiches. And suddenly, one day I decided I LOVED avocados. And no, it wasn't because of the bacon, although bacon makes everything taste better.   Now, I can't get enough of avocados. I put them in and on anything I can Read more [...]
Cilantro Lime Rice

Cilantro Lime Rice

I hope you’re not bored of Mexican food yet. Ha! I’m slowly making my way toward the Grand Finale: Cafe Rio Copycat Smothered Burritos. But to get there, I have to post all the other elements first. And there are quite a few. So, bear […]

Pico de Gallo

Pico de Gallo

Pico de Gallo, or Salsa Fresca is pretty much amazing. There are lots of ways to make Pico and many variations depending on what flavors you prefer. For me, I like to keep it simple. Tomatoes, onion, garlic, fresh cilantro, and fresh lime plus a […]

Mexi Quinoa Salad

Mexi Quinoa Salad

I don't really know why I decided to start calling this "Mexi Quinoa." I think I just got really lazy and didn't want to say Mexican Style Quinoa Salad. So Mexi Quinoa it is. This salad is packed full of protein, vitamins, nutrients, fresh vegetables, and flavor. It can be served hot or cold, over lettuce or chips, as a side dish or entree. Clearly, this is a very versatile dish and it can be customized to your liking!   I prefer to serve the quinoa mixture over a bed of chopped romaine Read more [...]
Black Beans

Black Beans

My husband spent two years serving a mission for our Church in Porto Alegre Brazil. He had the time of his life sharing the Gospel and teaching the Brazillian people. One of the things he always talks about is the Black Beans and Rice they […]

Gooey S’mores Bars

Gooey S’mores Bars

Recipe lightly adapted from here   When I first saw this recipe on Pinterest, I got excited. I know recipes can be hit or miss, so I started with very low expectations. I modified things a little to suit my liking, and the result was […]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins

  I know it's off season for Pumpkin, but I decided I needed to re-photograph these muffins. My first attempt was just that, an attempt. I have learned quite alot since then and decided to share a comparison picture from when I first started out at Eat It & Say Yum. The muffins look pretty yummy in the first picture on the left, but clearly my photography skills are lacking. The photo on the right is the one I did recently. I like to think I've learned and grown. Every photo shoot I learn Read more [...]
Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

  I love apples and I love a good apple crisp. By good apple crisp I mean more crisp than apples. In fact, really just a couple apples with a whole lot of topping. That defines good apple crisp for me. This apple crisp meets […]
