Anyone around here March Madness fans? I honestly never watch college basketball (we are huge Utah Jazz fans at our house), but we do think March Madness is fun. We like filling out our brackets and watching a game here or there. I find it more fun to watch the college games when I have a $5 stake in who wins :).
Anyways, with March Madness just around the corner, I thought I would come up with a fun appetizer/dip to serve while watching the games, or really to enjoy anytime you want. This Black-Eyed Pea Salsa is super simple to throw together and packed full of nutrients, making it a delicious and healthy option for game nights. I like to make up a big batch of Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips to use for dipping, and I am then officially in chips and dip heaven!
This salsa also tastes great as a salad. Pile any leftovers on a bunch of spinach and you have a super quick and healthy lunch. You won’t even need additional salad dressing, which is always a plus.

Anyone out there Seahawks fans? How about the Patriots? We are not Seahawk or Patriot fans at our house, but we do love football (my husband especially), and The Super Bowl is one of the few times a year when … Continue reading
Happy Monday! Is there such a thing as a happy Monday, I say absolutely, it’s all in the attitude – right? How are you all holding up during the most dreadful month of the year? I am hanging in there, … Continue reading
We are having desperately cold weather here in Utah (it is January after all), so I thought I would share a recipe that will help you stay warm, and stick to your healthy eating goals. My favorite kind of winter … Continue reading
What am I going to make for dinner? Do any of you find yourselves asking this very question multiple times a day/week/month? I feel like I am always thinking about what I am going to make for dinner (it doesn’t … Continue reading
