Taco Salad & Icy Drink

Left-overs are awesome:) For all the people that are planners…. Isn’t it so much easier/quicker if you get double the meat and veggies on the front end? Then you can cook up a nice meal the night before, and still have a delicious lunch (that doesn’t require the stove/oven) the next day. My mom discovered… Continue reading Taco Salad & Icy Drink

Fuel for Summer Dance Intensive

  I can’t believe I’m already 1/2 way through Summer Dance Intensive. It’s been so much fun!!! Not only have I done ballet, but I’ve worked on Jazz, Modern, and Character. So, when I got high heels for character, that was my first time in a heeled shoe like that! However, I would call pointe shoes the extreme high heel;) We… Continue reading Fuel for Summer Dance Intensive

I believe that Meredith added some cinnamon, so feel free to add extra spices! There… Continue reading Nigella’s Grain Free cake

Rehearsal & Choreography for Ballet Recital

I’m super excited!!!! You know why? Tomorrow is our end-of-year ballet performance:) At my studio, every level performances a piece that our teachers choreograph. This year, we began practicing in March. There are 3 sections, which total up to about 10 minutes. Each piece is so different! The first one starts out really pleasant. In… Continue reading Rehearsal & Choreography for Ballet Recital

Spicy Beef stuffed avocado and chips

Have you seen all the stuffed avocado dishes on the Internet? Well, I made my own! Plus, I used up the left-over meat from the fridge! My first attempt at the stuffed avocado was ground beef. I was thinking Mexican seasonings would go great inside an avocado, because people make guacamole with cumin and chili… Continue reading Spicy Beef stuffed avocado and chips
