Hello and welcome!

Thanks for stoping by! That's me, and my super cute and spunky 1 year old, Nora. When we're not laying on the floor taking selfies, we also like to bake, take lots of pretty photos, and practice yoga. Aside from posting way too many pictures of Nora on instagram, I also take pretty wedding picures and make pretty baby items. So browse around, and keep up with all the latest.
More about me...

Greg came home one night going on and on about The Elbow Room in West Hartford, and this amazing Black Bean Salsa he had with his burger. Its rare that he gets motivated to cook, but he liked it so much he decided he’d like to try and recreate it. So, after buying ingredients from the grocery store on his way home from work one night, and referring to a recipe from “Guy Ferrari”, he got to chopping.

He paired the black bean salsa with some fresh tilapia cooked with some Italian herbs and lemon juice on the grill. The dinner was fantastic! If you’d like to try the black bean salsa for yourself, you can find it here on the Food Network site. I’ve also copied it below for no reason specifically, but I just like to include the recipe in my Sunday Afternoon Baking series posts (and we always slightly modify a recipe to our taste, which is included below)

2 cans black beans, drained, about 30 ounces
1 cup frozen corn thawed, or fresh if you can cut it of the cob :)
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1 large red bell pepper, diced
1 medium red onion, diced
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
Juice of 1/2 lime
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
Pinch ground cumin

add all ingredients to large bowl, mix well, adjust seasoning to your liking, and enjoy! It is SOOOO good. Last night I made a variation of this as a larger, stand alone salad, to eat for lunch. IT WAS JUST as good!! I’ll be posting that recipe soon, as it includes some great greens that are normally super bitter and yucky by themselves (like broccoli and spinach), but in the salad, tastes fantastic! I hope you enjoy it if you try it. Any favorite salads or salsas that you just can’t live without? Share the recipe below in the comments, I’d love to try it out!!
