Burrito Bowl

As I recently mentioned in my Cilantro Lime Rice post, I love Qdoba and Chipotle.  When I go there, I always order the same thing - a Burrito Bowl, or Naked Burrito, consisting of: Rice, Meat and Cheese.  As plain and simple as it is, I cannot get enough of it and often crave it.  Whatever meat I chose all depends on my mood, but it's usually Grilled Chicken or Shredded Beef.  Eventually I will find a shredded beef recipe that I will want to use to make these at home, but until then I stick with a simply marinated grilled chicken - the marinade usually consisting of a little EVOO, Lime Juice, a bit of tequila, some garlic, chili powder and jalapeño... delicious!

While this isn't much of a recipe, I still wanted to post, for anyone that loves burrito bowls like I do.  They're so easy to make at home with your own modifications.  Just because I like mine plain, as you can tell from the picture, doesn't mean you can't go all out!

  2. I love chipotle best and that's always what I order too--except with loads of salsa beans and veggies as well. I need to attempt to make the rice at home so we can just enjoy these from our own kitchen! Thanks for the inspiration :)

Nutella Cannoli

Nutella is something that I love, but honestly don't really eat or bake with that often, always regretting that fact each time I eat something with Nutella. Well, I am vowing to change my ways - starting with these Cannolis!  They're definitely not a traditional cannoli as the combination of cream cheese and whipped cream make them more like a cheesecake filling, or even mousse, but the cannoli shell makes them easy to grab and eat.  No fork required - my kind of dessert!


Usually I prefer to make mini cannolis because sometimes full ones are just too rich for me, however any recipe could easily be adapted to a regular cannoli shell size (or mini size if the case may be).  The combination of the cream cheese, whipped cream and Nutella definitely made these a rich bite-size dessert, that I think may become one of my go-to recipes when I need to make something quick and impressive.

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my!

But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?  Check!  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do!  Pumpkin?  Well of course!  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try!

One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix them, ba…

Exclusive Pumping - why I did it twice, and some tips & tricks

This is a story I've been wanting to share for several years, in fact one of the reasons I decided to make the switch to more of a life blog versus a food blog. So bear with me here!

I have two children. I tried breastfeeding both of them, and was unsuccessful with both, for different reasons. One wouldn't latch. One my supply was too fast and plentiful. I tried a few things because I really really wanted to breastfeed, but it was stressing me out, so I looked in to other options, which is where I learned about exclusive pumping. 

 What is exclusive pumping (or EP)? It's when a mother expresses her milk to feed her child, rather than feeding "straight from the source". Prior to having Tyler, I knew very little about pumping, but I knew that since I planned to breastfeed and planned to work after maternity leave, I would need a pump. But that was about it. I remember the weekend before he was born sitting on my bed playing with the pump and thinking the manual was…
