Oh, kababs.  How do I love thee?  Let me count the ways.  Seriously though,  I could go on for days about how much I love kabobs!  I mean, what's not to love?

Just look at all of those beautiful colors lined up like a rainbow.  Almost too pretty to eat if you ask me.  Packed with lean meat and lots of fruit and veggies, these kabobs are truly a complete meal on a stick.  So fun, so colorful, and super duper flavorful.  Kabobs are the whole package!

Cherries are one of my most recent favorite indulgences.  Snacking on a bowl of sweet, delicious cherries is a sweet treat I can feel good about eating.  They are anti-inflammatory, full of antioxidants, and so so good.

Growing up, when I would think of cherries the only thing that would come to mind was bright red, drenched in sugar, jarred maraschino cherries.  Preferably served in a shirley temple or on an ice cream sundae, naturally.

It wasn't until I was an adult that I discovered how amazing fresh cherries are.  Maraschino cherries are now considered an afterthought for this girl!  Fresh cherries are not only my favorite snacking fruit, but I also like to use cherries in breakfast recipes like overnight oats and in dessert recipes like these Almond Butter Blondies.

If there's one meal that I prepare for my family for dinner more often than any other meal in my arsenal of family favorites, it's steak and potatoes.  Nothing fancy, just give me a simply seasoned steak, a baked potato, and a little salad and I'm one happy lady. Simple, but oh, so good.

We are smack dab in the middle of summer break I couldn't be happier about it. Summer, in general, hasn't always been a favorite of mine until recently.  There once was a time when I would dread the long summer days for one reason and one reason only.  We didn't have a pool.

The humidity and Florida heat are unbearable without having a pool in the back yard to cool off every now and then when you're spending time outside.  I may be spoiled, but this momma likes to beat the heat in a sparkling body of water!  The good news is that two years ago we bought our forever home and I got my #1 non-negotiable...a big ol' swimming pool.

If I'm going to be honest, I have to say that planning a party is almost as fun as attending a party.  I don't mean for that to sound like I'm anti-social or anything.  Quite the contrary.  I adore anything from casual gatherings to celebratory events with friends and family.

What I mean is that, when it comes to hosting a get-together, crafting the perfect seasonal menu, shopping for the best deals, and pulling everything together, I'm your girl.  It's like an art if you really think about it.  An art that I thoroughly enjoy.  Truth be told, I've always been an artsy kind of gal and, well, food is my jam!  I do write a food blog after all!

So, let's talk for a minute about how this recipe is very similar to another bean dip recipe here on The Two Bite Club.  To be fair, the other recipe uses a different kind of bean, but the basics are the pretty much the same: beans, avocado, salsa, and a little seasoning.

I honestly didn't realize the similarities until after I made this black bean dip, photographed it, and started typing out the recipe.  Whoops!  I just had to share anyway, though, because you can never have too many variations on bean dip if you ask me.  And I scarfed this one down like nobody's business, which means it's def blog-worthy!

I think I could eat tacos every day.  Actually, scratch that.  I absolutely, 100%, without a doubt could eat tacos every single day of my life.  Gimme all da tacos.

Here's the thing, though: sometimes certain people in my family, *cough-my husband-cough*, quickly tire of going the Mexican route.

Crazy, right?  I'll never understand it.

Summer brings lots of great things around here.  Summer brings staying up late, sleeping in, endless hours of pool time, and occasionally ice cream for breakfast.  What summer also brings is two kids that often have trouble keeping themselves busy for those super long days with no plans set in stone.

I frequently get requests to go to Universal Studios or Chuck E. Cheese (thanks, TV commercials!) because being at home with nothing to do is sooooo boring.  Or so the kids say.
