Cinco de Mayo is almost here and nothing makes the celebration complete at my house than margaritas. Are you with me?⠀

These margaritas, served on the rocks, with a salt rim of course, use all fresh fruit juices instead of mixes so you know exactly what you're getting. And they come out perfectly tart, crisp and delicious every time!⠀

Just look how easy it is to whip them up!⠀
1/4 cup tequila⠀
1/4 cup lime juice⠀
1/4 cup orange juice⠀
1/4 cup Triple Sec or Cointreau⠀
1 teaspoon agave nectar (optional)⠀
Combine in a shaker then divide between 2 salt-rimmed glasses filled with crushed ice.⠀
Cheers!⠀

What's your favorite Mexican dish or cocktail to celebrate Cinco de Mayo?⠀

Let's talk about diets. Are you on a diet? Personally, I don't believe in diets and the last few months, I've been pretty loosey goosey with my eating habits. I had ice cream when I wanted, chips more than once a week, and my body weight in bubble tea 😂
But race season is upon us and that means I need to pay a little more attention to what I'm eating. I'm working on going from 70/30 healthy eating to 80/20 before transitioning to 90/10 in the fall. That means I don't have to say goodbye to my ice cream just that I'll be eating it less often 😂🍦 Note that I'm doing this in baby steps because I think going directly to eating healthy 100% of the time is setting yourself up for failure. Denying yourself food you love isn't something that's sustainable. And as someone who in the past has had a destructive relationship with food/struggle with weight, it's not a mindset I ever want to be in again

We love to bake muffins at our house. They are great for quick on-the-go breakfasts or after school snacks and, like this recipe, are easy to make. In fact, this recipe for Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins is one that my boys like to help me whip up. It’s one of their absolute favorites. Ummm, that couldn’t have anything to do with the chocolate chips, could it? Lol⠀

These muffins bake up moist, fluffy and flavorful but not too sweet. They have a natural banana flavor and the addition of the chocolate chips just makes them irresistible!⠀

While I was cooking these pork chops last night, I started sketching away on my iPad and ended up illustrating the ingredients needed...so here’s how you make them! ✨ Marinade the chops in orange and lime juice for about a half hour. I usually salt and pepper the top side while they’re sitting. ✨ Heat a pan on medium, add oil, as sear the chops salt and pepper side down. Salt and pepper the other side while they’re searing. Flip and sear on the second side. ✨ Turn the heat down to medium-low. Pour in the juice that you marinated the chops in, and let them simmer, flipping them occasionally. Aim for cooked through but not dry, and the marinade will simmer down to a thick glaze. Add some water if it’s thickening before they’re fully cooked!
