Pico de Gallo with Mangos

My friend Zach made this delicious pico de gallo!!  I loved it.  I am definitely going to be making it soon.

Zach says, “Pico de gallo is super easy and easily adaptable to what you’ve got around. It’s a good side dish for any “scraps” that are laying around.  {It is also} good in tacos as well. Next time I think I’ll add more mango. Pico de gallo in Spanish means “beak of the rooster”. It’s not something to be taken seriously.” Continue reading

#SundaySupper: Grilled Chicken Pita Sandwich

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back supper around the family table in every home.  This week everyone is cooking from The Mom 100 Cookbook by Katie Workman.

This is crazy!  I improvised!  Normally, I strictly follow recipes.  I am just not confident that I can alter something and it will still taste good.  But today I did not have a recipe and so I was spontaneous.

AND IT WORKED!!!!!  Ok, to start for #sundaysupper we are making something from Katie Workman’s cookbook.  I don’t have the cookbook so I had to use one of the recipes that is online already.  She has a parsley, lemon, rosemary roast chicken recipe that I thought might taste good grilled.  Not to mention there is no way I am going to turn on the oven in this heat.  (Also, I used parsley instead of rosemary.  I forgot to buy rosemary.)

The past few days have been so hot!!!  I can not function properly in crazy heat.  It is a good thing I don’t live any farther south.  I might never be productive again!

My favorite way to beat the heat is with yummy ice cold desserts.  Therefore, I give you blackberry peach granita.  I love my coffee granita and I had some left over peaches and blackberries around.  So I thought I would give it a whirl.
