#FMF: Yummy Recipes

Yummy Recipes – (of food) delicious, a set of instructions for preparing a particular dish, including a list of the ingredients required.

TGIF ladies! As you know, it is 12 days until Thanksgiving Day! This year I’ll be helping my mom cook at her house. I know I know, I just recently moved and it would only seem fitting that we cook at my house BUT there’s just something about being at my mom’s house and cooking that I feel is almost a tradition in itself! I get so excited just thinking about all the wonderful eats & treats and being in the kitchen with my mom. We start on Thanksgiving Eve with prepping the turkey for overnight/early morning baking and we go ahead and prep all the other odds-and-ins (such as dicing onions and peppers, boiling eggs, etc.) that will make cooking the Thanksgiving fixings a breeze the next morning. The kitchen conversations are always memories of my grandmothers (both deceased) and how they used to cook for the holidays. Then once my brother comes, the conversations shift to mapping out our Black Friday plans of attack LOL!

But today, I want YOU my dear girlfriends to “fill me” with your most yummy recipes! I’m always looking for new recipes. And just to get this Yummy Recipe Exchange started, I want to share with you this oh-so-yummy recipe that’s a go-to in my book! Many of you have seen it before anytime you’ve purchased Mueller’s brand elbow noodles.

#TransformationTuesday

In honor of the coined hashtag #transformationtuesday. I would like to share an image I found on Pinterest. The image demonstrates how we should all approach each meal of the day. I believe if we were to vow to follow this imagery, we too can have our own #transformationtuesday for all to see!

I hope this inspires someones to a small step towards a healthier lifestyle.

Until next time ladies… enjoy your Tuesday!!

Summertime Eats!

Hi ladies! Happy Tuesday…I hope the week is treating you well with this 100 degree weather and it’s not even summer yet!!!!!! I hope everyone enjoyed the kickoff of our first annual summer beauty series and our guest vlogger MzNaturalLife…she offered up some pretty good tips to stay GLAMed up this summer. In staying GLAMed, it all starts within and work its way outward. So let’s talk about this summer heat and what to eat. I tend to try and eat lighter in the summertime (which I think everyone does) just so I don’t feel wiped out when I’m done. The only problem I have is figuring out what that “lighter” option is besides salads lol. So since I decided to start cooking again, I tried a new veggie tonight….drum roll please…..spaghetti squash!!!!!!!!! I’m always skeptical and hesitant when trying new things; but can we say delicious! Yea I cheated a little and cooked it in the microwave, but the butter, garlic and Italian herb sauce sprinkled with a little Parmesan was on point! This will be a go to substitute pasta for those nights when I’m feeling starchy. So overall I didn’t do too bad today…banana and grapefruit for breakfast, zesty sriracha carrot hummus and pita chips (and something else lol) for lunch, and spaghetti squash and salad for dinner…go me lol. Only if I could find some extra protein I’d be doing great!

So luv’s, what’s some of your summertime favs? Until next time…keep it breezy!!!!!!
