Sweet + Spicy Cornbread Muffins

This sweet and spicy cornbread has a touch of honey and is infused with jalapeΓ±o butter, giving it just the right amount of spice. Mouth burning, eyes watering, nose running, cartoon steam coming out my ears isn’t my jam, so that’s what you’re looking for here, move along… this is not the cornbread you’re looking for.

Fruit Salad With Mint Dressing

Let’s be honest, fruit salad is boring. Most of the time, it’s not even salad… it’s just chopped up fruit thrown in a bowl. So when my dad visited for Father’s Day a few years ago and said he was cutting back carbs and requested a fruit salad with his Father’s Day brunch, I wanted to find a way to zhuzh it up a little. What I came up with was this sweet, citrusy, minty dressing that took my fruit salad from a sad salad to an exciting side.

Elote Couscous

Not too long ago Trader Joe’s came out with another pretty incredible seasoning blend: Everything But The Elote Seasoning Blend. We had recently gotten really into couscous, so when I saw it on the new products shelf, I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it. This recipe takes only a matter of minutes and is full of citrusy, salty, chili goodness.

Cheddar Pepper Biscuits

We all have one thing in common: we all love carbs… we all love warm, cheesy carbs, and this easy cheesy biscuit recipe is exactly that: a peppery baking powder biscuit with melty cheese folded in its layers. Enter Cheddar Pepper Biscuits.
