Last week I made my Smoky Black Bean Chili for dinner. It’s great because it cooks in the crock pot, leaving the kitchen nice and cool. Since it makes a big ‘ol pot of chili there were lots of leftovers that I stuck in the freezer. And, last night I made enchiladas with the chili, some more black beans, zucchini, and corn. Man, was it yummy!
Actually, to be more precise, this is a Peach, Nectarine, and Strawberry Fruit Salad with Lime Honey Basil Syrup. I first made this salad for my sister-in-law’s, baby shower, and I’ve been waiting for the stone fruit to be ripe ever since summer ended last year so that I could make it again. Here it is in all it’s pretty and colorful fresh summery-ness!
I’m really excited to bring this Kentucky Derby Chocolate-Pecan Ice Cream to you for many reasons. Of course I’m excited because it’s delicious!!! And, it’s a healthy treat. It’s diary-free (which means it’s good for you lactose intolerant peeps and it doesn’t give that bloated dairy after-feel), it’s Paleo, it’s vegan, it doesn’t have any processed sugars in it. Oh, just stop by and check it out! You’ll be glad you did!
