Healthy Chili Mac

As silly as it seems because I am such an outgoing person, being on video scares the crap out of me, but they say do one thing that scares you. Challenge yourself because fear will drive you more right? Well, I refuse to let fear take over me because I know what I am capable of, so here’s to doing my very first live cooking show since I was on Good Day Sacramento!!!! EEeekkkk!!! It went wonderful though, I prepped all my food, battled with my can opener because I need a new one and I was somehow at ease or in my own world once I hit that LIVE start button on Facebook.  I really want to incorporate my cooking to this amazing program I am a part of because I love it and it’s so easy, plus, teaching others is my passion, especially when it comes to the kitchen. I’m again in my own world in the kitchen. I’ve been cooking for years, since I was little and I love it. From cooking dinners nightly with my parents, to now teaching my kids and you all how to cook my recipes. I hope

Bone Broth

For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you'll know already that I am a firm believer in Bone Broth, or as I like to call it, Liquid Gold. I didn't always know about the benefits of Bone Broth, until I researched it and tried it for the first time. It was about 2 years ago when I first tried this amazing Liquid Gold. There are so many different types you can make too and they have amazing health benefits as well. For those of you who aren't familiar with bone broth, let me break it down for you a little bit. The Aesthetic Collagen that you get from it. We all want to feel younger right? Or look Younger Right? Well guess what, bone broth can make you feel amazing and confident and sexy. The collagen in Bone broth helps with skin, hair and nails, so hey, why not right? And you don't need any kind of procedure done to get that collagen into your skin, you literally just drink the liquid gold and over time you'll notice a difference in hair, skin a

Fajita Chicken Soup

Everything in life happens for a reason they say.... sometimes it's funny how things in life work out and how some things in life don't work out. The universe definitely works in mysterious ways. 5 years ago I auditioned for Masterchef and although I didn't make it on the show at that time, it is not because I didn't deserve to be on there, but because everything happens for a reason.  Never in a million years did I think I would be inspiring my fellow teammates with Arbonne with my cooking and inspiring others. I am so blessed that Arbonne found me and the amazing people that came along with it. Arbonne came to me at a time that was just right. It was at a time where I was struggling with myself emotionally and I needed to once again find that happy me that had been lost for so long. Within a month of starting with this amazing company, my husband could see how much I was turning back into the woman that he fell in love with. The woman who lost herself emotionally wa

Seared Scallops, Quinoa Salad and Butternut Squash Puree

Where do I even start with this one... Let's just say, Scallops are one of my specialties and I am always looking for new ways to change it up and different ways to eat them.  It is definitely a dish that may not come easy for some, but in my few years of trial and error, I have perfected cooking scallops, thanks to my grandma.... She is a wise one in the kitchen and I love picking her brain with how to cook certain things. This scallop recipe is everything amazing mixed into one. At first, I was nervous about this combo together because I wasn't sure it would go together, but to my surprise, everything in this dish complimented each other so well. It was amazing. The scallops were cooked to the perfect doneness to where they almost just melted in your mouth. The flavor of the quinoa with the butternut squash and scallop together.... It was like a Party in my Mouth! So freaking good!!! My husband is not a huge quinoa fan, but he loved this dish because of how it all taste co
