Fresh Fruit Tart

This recipe has been in my family for years. It’s the perfect dessert to welcome springtime! Chef’s tip: cold butter helps create air pockets in the pastry, leaving you with a flaky crust. The glaze is optional, although recommended!

Something New in the Old West

The only thing better than Arizona sunshine and moonrises are the delicious foods of the Southwest. In the North Valley, it’s not only the smoky bite of anchos, the kick of serranos, or the fun in experimenting with prickly pear, saguaro seeds and other desert bounty that makes for a good meal; it’s the brilliant infusion of local ingredients with other national and international flavors to create something wonderful.

PB & J Breakfast Bars Recipe

PB&J Breakfast bars are the perfect on-the-go snack! Skip the peanut butter and jelly—these bars are packed full of protein and good fats! I use grain-free granola and found dried strawberries at Whole Foods. For storage, these are great kept in the refrigerator.

Takin’ It to the Street… Tacos

In Mexico City, when the sun begins to set and the work of the day is done, the streets fill with music and delicious smells fill the air. Neighbors and friends share drinks, smiles and laughter, and everyone enjoys fresh and delicious tacos and tamales made to order by chirpy street vendors.

Superfood Salad Recipe

Packed full of antioxidant rich ingredients, Superfood Salad is as healthy as it is delicious! Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods have great bagged kale blends, which make this salad super easy. It keeps well in the fridge, which makes it a simple meal prep option.

Mini Chocolate Brownie Skillets

When that craving hits for something chocolate-y, whip up these guilt-free skillets in a matter of minutes to satisfy that sweet tooth. I love this recipe because it is gluten- and refined sugar-free, which makes it easier to keep your resolutions of eating healthy for the new year!
