If you’re not following her blog, you need to be. I feel like we’re very similar… her recipes range from healthy food to comfort …

Mexican Rice Bowl-001

So this isn’t technically a recipe, just simply an idea. An idea inspired by the naked burrito bowls at Qdoba/Chipotle, complete with a healthier, brown rice version of the cilantro-lime rice. This is kind of like taco night, only stepped up a notch or two. Pick your favorite ingredients, set them up in a row and let everyone build their perfect spicy rice bowl. here’s …

Cilantro Lime Brown Rice

daisi - August 6, 2012

In these warm (understatement of the year) summer months, I’ve been craving light, refreshing meals. This week cilantro was on my brain. I do love me some Qdoba, so I decided to attempt a healthier-homemade naked burrito bowl at home, complete with cilantro-lime brown rice. Inspired by this Two Peas & Their Pod cilantro-lime rice, I decided to make a healthier version by substituting brown rice for white. The …

Philly Firecrackers

daisi - July 6, 2012

I couldn’t resist these roll-ups on the 4th of July because of their name, Philly Firecrackers. I mean, how perfect is that for the 4th celebration?

Lime Chicken Melt

daisi - June 25, 2012

I bought double the ingredients for the Chicken & Avocado Salad with Lime & Cilantro I made last week. So later in the week, I re-invented the recipe into a chicken melt. It was the best sandwich I’ve had in quite a while. I’m typically not a fan of hot sandwiches (call me crazy) but for some reason the thought of lime, cilantro, and chicken with …

Chicken Tamale Casserole

daisi - February 26, 2012

I love getting recommendations of blogs to follow through other great blogs. It’s like book recommendations or something, they’re always better when you know the source suggesting them. That is how I came to find the elefantitas alegres blog. Although, I can’t recall which blog introduced me, I have been a loyal follower for quite a while now. Kate does menu recaps pretty often and I …
