During my recent trip to Las Vegas, I certainly made a lot of memories. While staying at the legendary Cosmopolitan, apart of some of the best-ranked Las Vegas hotels, I was fortunate enough to enjoy a unique culinary adventure. With a plethora of diverse cuisine and beverages to choose from, picking the tastiest options proved to be challenging. Luckily, my selection of this delicious strawberry and peanut butter smoothie proved to be the right one. I wanted to take this fabulous smoothie back home with me to Chicago to share with friends and family.
I’m always looking for new ideas for breakfast. Oatmeal is starting to get old and I’m starting to turn more and more to quinoa. For those of you who don’t know, quinoa has become really popular in the last few years due to it’s nutritional content. It’s a source of complete protein and is commonly confused with a grain. It’s gluten free and incredibly versatile. You can use it for savory dinners, sinful desserts (chocolate quinoa cake anyone?), or sweet breakfasts.
My son’s first birthday is coming up and I’m really excited about it. I plan on serving a lot of finger foods/appetizers and although I have a lot of the main dishes down: chicken wings, veggies & dip and a few carby things. I want to try something different for snacks. I’m not wanting chips so that’s why I’m checking out Life Made Delicious for some easy recipes. Carter’s first birthday has a farm/barnyard theme and I’m trying to think of some creative ideas that way. Naturally I will be doing deviled eggs, pigs in a blanket and now thanks to the Taco-Seasoned Chex Mix recipe I found – Chicken Feed.
