All of the fresh fish and shrimp tacos we enjoyed on vacation earlier this month left us
craving for more, so I decided to use my new Le Creuset Signature Square Skillet Grill
to make some Grilled Spicy Lime Shrimp Tacos with Black Bean & Corn Salsa at home.

Happy Friday!
After indulging in lots of treats while we were on vacation over the 4th, I've been trying
to get back on the healthy track.  On Sunday I made a batch of overnight oats to get me
through most of the week.

Sometimes you need to be reminded of the beauty in your own backyard.

Over the weekend we met some friends for dinner on Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah
National Forest. We live in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, just 25 minutes from the
entrance to Skyline Drive, however it's been years since we have been there.  Our friends
were visiting from North Carolina (hi Tom and Betsey!) and asked us to join them for
the evening.

Carrot Ribbon Fettuccine


Carrot Ribbon Fettuccine





















My little deck herb garden is doing great this year. I love being able to walk right outside
the kitchen to snip fresh herbs for my recipes! I also have two tomato plants and two
strawberry plants as well.  I can't wait to see pretty little strawberries on my deck!

Mini Chocolate Cake


Mini Chocolate Cake
My parent's 57th wedding anniversary was the perfect excuse to make this adorable
mini chocolate cake.  I pinned this recipe in January, right after Christina posted it
on her blog, Dessert for Two. I thought it was the cutest thing ever!

it's super easy to make. My kind of dinner!

Pitaya Smoothie Bowl


Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl Recipe








































The warmer temperatures here in Virginia have me craving smoothies and smoothie bowls
much more frequently.  Dragon fruit (Pitaya) smoothies are one of my favorites because
they are so pretty! They're also nutritious and taste delicious too!
