“One of my New Year’s resolutions is to start every day with a nutritious, flavorful breakfast. I’ve noticed that when my family starts the day with a balanced breakfast including protein, we feel more satisfied and energetic. When I think about our favorite breakfast foods, chilaquiles always comes to mind. The combination of crispy tortillas, spicy salsa, tender chicken and cheese is hard to resist. Chilaquiles are also easy to make. For this recipe, I chose to use a roasted green salsa. There is something really special about roasted tomatillos, you get a deeper, smokier flavor that harmonizes with the chicken. Top it all with avocado, sour cream and Mexican cheese and you have a breakfast for champions.”

“What do you cook when you have an abundance of fresh Meyer lemons? An assortment of lemon recipes, of course! Our lemon tree produces a lot of lemons. This season we picked over 350 already so I’m always looking for new ways to create wholesome meals packed with fresh citrus flavor. The new year is a great time to experiment with new flavor combinations or create unique twists on classic recipes. Sheet Pan Mozzarella Stuffed Lemon Chicken and Broccoli combines my love for lemon, chicken, cheese and spinach. Add a side of roasted broccoli and the meal is complete. The entire meal comes together easily and satisfies kids and adults.”

Trust me, I’m right there with you. You’re probably used to taking your morning coffee to the next level with flavored creamer, but we’re going to tap into tasty resources with International Delight products to make some amazing coffee creations.”

It is perfect for the person that has a hectic schedule, a family to feed, and doesn’t want to spend a lot of time, muss, or fuss in the kitchen but wants to get an uber tasty breakfast on the table.

I mean family + food + weekend = good times all the way around right? But let’s take that equation just a bit further and add EASY with very little cleanup.”
