Two of my favorite salads I’ve ever made are the Quinoa Caprese Salad and Greek Quinoa Salad, so I decided to put the healthy and popular grain to use once again in this Mexican Quinoa Salad, that is gluten free and vegan, yet packed with protein!
Let me just start by saying, OH… WOW… YUM!
I was lucky enough to spend this Father’s Day with my Dad. With him living in Oklahoma, and me living in San Diego, we don’t usually get to spend Father’s Day together.
This year it worked out for him & my Mom to take their summer trip to San Diego over Father’s Day weekend, so of course I decided to throw him a brunch!
On Little Leopard Book, I’m always looking for ways to switch up traditional dishes.
One way I love to do this is by taking a traditional Italian dish and making it Mexican. Have you checked out my Mexican Stuffed Shells or Mexican Manticotti? Both super scrumptious and both Mexican twists on traditional Italian dishes.
Alright, it’s time for a little honesty to start this post. I used to think that veggie burgers were all dry, flavorless and just kind of boring!
That was until I made my own veggie burgers! I’m now slightly addicted to creating different veggie burger recipes!
I took one sip of this cocktail creation on 4th of July, then looked at my friend and said, “ok these are dangerous. Dangerously good!”
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw the “cheers-ing” of copper mugs on my balcony with red & blue straws to kick off the holiday weekend.
If you were wondering what was inside and thinking that is was probably just a traditional Moscow Mule, then you would be wrong, this is the Moscow Mule, summer-ized!
Now that summer is in full swing and grilling season is well under way, it’s time to introduce you to my latest grilled skewer creation, the Roasted Jalapeño Honey Chicken Skewer!
When it comes to salads I know that most people (including myself) immediately think, a base of greens (lettuce, spinach or kale) topped with various fruits, vegetables, dressings, cheese, etc.
Well, the panzanella salad says forget the greens, we’re going straight for the good stuff, bread and tomatoes!
