Blueberry Dessert Pizza

Blueberry Dessert Pizza

I consider myself pretty lucky! My kids are happy, they are healthy and they still willingly hang out in public with their mom.

Berry + Basil Tomato Sauce

I love unexpected flavor combinations, don’t you? Strawberries and tomatoes aren’t the most likely pair, but they actually complement each other rather nicely. The folks at Driscoll’s contacted me last month with a fun summer challenge that I just couldn’t resist. They asked if I could create a savory recipe using their amazing strawberries. I just loved the…

Kale & Quinoa Salad recipe by @beardandbonnet with @Massel on www.beardandbonnet.com

12 Must Make Summertime Dishes with Massel

This kale & quinoa salad is inspired by my 2 favorite superfoods, kale and quinoa! Nick’s restaurant here in Long Beach features a similar salad that I literally crave, but paying $17 for a salad as often as I have the craving for it just doesn’t make sense. So, I created my own version, now I can…

Banging Kale Basil Sauce

Let’s talk sauces, specifically this Banging Kale Basil Sauce! Do you know one of those people that pours sauce over everything? Growing up I was surrounded by “over-saucers”.
