So, not to toot my own horn.. But these are the best chocolate chip cookies you will ever make. Look, there are millions of recipes for chocolate chip cookies on the internet.. I get it. But when you think of a classic chocolate chip cookie in its simplest, most satisfying form… that’s this cookie.
Summer is without a doubt, my favorite time of year. I love cookouts, cold beers, and of course, cheeseburgers and hotdogs. But you know what’s even better than all of that? This tortellini pasta salad. This pasta salad is SUCH a hit! My friends like it, Eric’s friends like it, even my boss likes it! The key to this recipe is using refrigerated tortellini, none of that dried stuff!
Guacamole can be made so many ways, but I think my recipe is the best out there. I think what sets this recipe a part is the addition of my pico de gallo. You could make a more simple guacamole with smashed avocado and some herbs and spices. However, I love the added pico de gallo in this guacamole recipe.
If you’re a fan of Mexican fare, you might have already made my Cantina-Style Salsa recipe. So, what is pico de gallo, anyway? Well, let me tell you! It’s a salsa fresca (fresh salsa) that’s made of diced tomatoes, onions, jalapeños, and herbs. It’s different from salsa because there’s not as much liquid, and it’s a lot chunkier.
Ditch the margarita mix and make this fruity drink from scratch! Nothing says “warm weather” to me like margaritas. I think everyone has their own natural preference of alcohol when it comes to cocktails, and for me, that’s tequila. Normally, my go-to is a simple margarita made with fresh lime juice, but I was feeling fancy and decided too make a refreshing mango margarita instead.
Growing up, my mom made a delicious pasta dish that consisted of chicken, mushrooms, and sun-dried tomatoes… this is my take! This dish is decadent without being too heavy. In addition, you can easily omit the chicken to make this vegetarian-friendly. In addition, this recipe is appropriate year-round. You can also use frozen asparagus to make this more budget-friendly.
