Fruit smoothies are a favorite in our house and we really like the ones that include yogurt. In stores you can find freezer packs already made in the frozen food section and they taste great, but they can be on the expensive side. So Hubby and I decided to make our own freezer packs so […]

Cilantro and Lime Coleslaw Recipe

May 7, 2014 Food

Coleslaw has never been a favorite food of mine. Most of them that I tasted over the years just tasted like mushy cabbage in mayo and I was not a fan. However, I do like salads and thought I could come up with some coleslaw I might like. Last night I made this Cilantro and […]

Air Fried Tostones (plantains)

February 12, 2014 Food

Tonight we had Mexican food for dinner and I decided to try and make some tostones in my air fryer. Tostones are twice-fried plantains. These are the things that look like bananas but they are not. I actually hate bananas so trust me when I say plantains do not taste the same because I love […]
