This recipe is perfect for owners that love their Pups! Although I am calling them pupsicles, these are perfect treats for kids and adults too!They only have three ingredients so they are super simple to make. They are just cantaloupe,yogurt and carrot juice. Blend them all together and fill some ice trays and you got yourself a yummy treat that the pup (or kid) in your life will love!

Mexican Black Bean Pizzas

Hi Readers! Gosh the last month has literally been insane. My husband and I just bought our first house which is so exciting!It was actually built for a survivor of the Titanic in 1930!  More importantly, the kitchen in this house is literally insane( more pictures to come.) I cannot wait to start cooking in it! The last couple of weeks have been so crazy with having work done to the house and packing up our condo. Phew, I am tired. When I have been running back and forth between houses I need a super easy, but delicious dinner to make.

Summer Pesto Pasta with Goat Cheese

Do I have a winning pasta dish for all of you! I love pesto and goat cheese together and when you combine that with fresh pasta, you get pure amazingness. Fresh pasta is something from the god's...... Or the supermarket. Fresh pasta cooks in just minutes and it tastes so much better than boxed pasta. If ou need a tutorial click here!You can make this summer pasta with anything from your garden. If you really want to go crazy you could add jalapeno or cilantro to the pesto and add vegetables from your garden. You can even use this pesto to spread on pizza to serve with this pasta also. If you have any pesto left over you can fill up ice trays and freeze them to use later!

Summer Pesto Pasta with Goat Cheese

Pesto ( home made or store bought)
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1 shallot
1/4 cup goat cheese
1/2 lb fresh tagliatelle
2 tsp olive oil
1 carton sliced baby bella mushrooms


1. I followed this recipe for home made pesto. If you have a food processor pesto is a cinch so make it yourself! If you make the pesto yourself set aside when done.
2. Slice shallot and mushroom and saute(medium) with olive oil until tender. Add cherry tomatoes until they burst.
3. While you are sauteing, boil the fresh pasta ( less than 3 minutes to cook). If you are using boxed pasta cook to packaged directions.
4. When pasta is cooked, drain and add to pan with mushrooms and tomatoes. Add pesto and toss.
5. Plate in bowls and top with crumbled goat cheese!

Summer Style Chicken Salad

I like chicken salad especially in the summer. Chicken salad can have the tendency to be either heavy or fattening depending on the mix ins. Chicken salad is traditionally mayo based and served on bread. I decided to lighten it up by making most of the mix Greek yogurt and making the filling fresh and vibrant to stand up to the summer sun.
