Mexican Chicken Soup

Mexican Chicken Soup

Looking for a flavorful, hearty and delicious bowl of soup? Then, this Mexican Chicken Soup is for you! I’m a sucker for Mexican spices.

Healthy Steak Salad

Making this salad was the highlight of my Sunday afternoon. It takes little time and you can prep some of the items way ahead of time. I cooked the beets earlier in the day and refrigerated them until I was ready to plate the salad. I also cooked the marinade and got that set in […]
