When I was I kid I remember feeling famished when I got home from school. My mom would always have a snack ready for my sisters and I when we walked in the door, and I remember it was a special ‘treat’ when she let us have pizza rolls! Looking back, I think that it was a good thing that she limited them to ’special’ treats..Because at 385 calories and 19 grams of fat per serving, they don’t exactly pass as a nutritious snack! I decided to make a healthier version of this childhood snack that’s just as much fun to make as it is to eat…And at only 30 calories a piece you can feel good about serving them to your kids, or enjoying them for yourself!

I am often puzzled why some people are more fussy about their food then the others. It does not take much effort to figure out good food and become reasonably fussy, if you ask me. As kids we all (although to varying degree) were exposed to the grandma’s cooking which usually sets quite high bar for any food to come later in life.

Spicy Black Bean Soup. | My Little Celebration True story. One time in college my roommate, Ashley, and I were struggling in the cash department and decided that we weren’t going to go to the grocery store until we ate everything in our pantry. Totally doable, right? Well, we did OK for a week or so but then we got down to practically nothing but bagged dry beans and were stumped.
About this time last year, I blogged a salsa recipe. I happen to like salsas this time of year; they’re easy to make, colorful and versatile. Rather than using tomatoes (admittedly, I was tempted), this time I opted for tomatillos, which despite their name and their round tomato-like shape are actually more closely related to the gooseberry. Though tomatillos are often cooked to soften their texture and natural bitterness, they’re also quite tasty when eaten raw. Tomatillo salsa for summer
Chowder isn't typically served in warmer seasons. It's thought of as a winter dish, served piping hot, rich, and thick to warm your body up on cold nights. This recipe, however, takes a different approach: it's light, dairy-free, and uses only the best summertime produce. It's also ridiculously easy to make. There's no cooking involved, so it's ready to serve as fast as it takes you to dice an avocado and whirl everything in a blender. Veggie 101: Fresh Corn Chowder

Ropa Vieja Shredded Beef -- slow cooker or stove-top filling for tacos & more This recipe falls into the category of comfort food for me. I'm originally a New Mexican girl, and I love anything I can put in a tortilla. Although Ropa Vieja shredded beef was originally a Cuban dish, my family uses this flavorful beef in a variety of Mexican food dishes (tacos, enchiladas, burritos, nachos, salads). It tastes fantastic but isn't too spicy for those who can't handle a lot of heat. My mom (aka Grammy) passed this recipe on to me many years ago.
