I often pick out my daily meals by way of cravings.
Sometimes these cravings are super elaborate and other times they’re pretty standard “throw things into bowl and eat” type meals.
And don’t we all love healthy, easy recipes? I know I do. As much as I love spending time in the kitchen cooking, baking, creating, I LOVE my easy-as-pie recipes that I can literally throw together in a bowl and chow down.
Plus, aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaany recipe that has a sauce I can
use gingerly drizzle onto drown my plate in is A-OK in my book!
Have I ever mentioned I love salsas and sauces??
This list could literally go on and on and on…
