Southwest Black Bean Salad

Hello to all my blogging fans!

I hate to break it to the dessert lovers, but I am currently on an experimental diet to see if I can get rid of this nasty cellulite under my butt. (I know we all have it, but I'm going to try to get rid of it!) With that being said, I can no longer eat starches. So there went all the desserts I love baking. I'm sure this diet won't last long, so hang in there! I've got some fabulous cupcake recipes I am dying to try!

I ran across this delicious recipe and got really excited. I looooove black beans, and CILANTRO! My favorite. My absolute favorite. So I whipped this up, but of course a little bit differently than the original recipe.

Lemon Sugar Cookies

So, I went on a whim and baked TWO lemon cookie recipes!

This one was from scratch however, and I was in a rush because I was running to class at the last minute of baking. So I didn't get to finish baking these, and I will when I get home tonight!

I ran across this on Pinterest of course, so I grabbed the recipe for this site and starting baking!

Lemon Crinkle Cookies

I love lemon. So much. I always asked for lemon for my birthday cake flavor, and anytime I was able to make a cake when I was young, lemon it was. So when I found this recipe for lemon burst cookies, I was STOKED!

And, this recipe calls for four ingredients. Four. How awesome? And you should have at least two of them if you bake. The other two are super cheap. A cheap and easy cookie recipe is what I'm all about!

Mediterranean Fish Tacos

I told my wonderful boyfriend that I have been cooking dinner far too much these last few weeks, so he had to decide on a recipe and help me cook it tonight. It's true, I've been cooking far too much (probably every night, no joke). So I was excited when he came up with these delicious fish tacos!

Black Bean Soup

Well hey there blog readers. It has been a while. A long long while. I am currently in my upteenth semester taking 17 hours and having an internship and a job. Bad decision, by the way. Anyways, back to the point of you being here!

About a month ago, I bought some dry black beans at Wally World and remember the other day that I still had some soaking in the fridge. Oops! Luckily, it takes forever for black beans to go bad, so I went ahead and decided to cook them.

My first thought was black bean burritos, but then I remember that I had tried black bean soup at a local restaurant and LOVED it. So I went on a mission to find a delicious recipe for Mexican-style black bean soup.

I found the recipe here and liked most of the recipe. But if I liked the entire recipe, then this blog wouldn't exist, however... I changed it.
