Herdez Cocina Mexican Bowl with Spicy Guacamole

Thanks to Herdez for sponsoring today's post, as always all opinions, photos and ideas are 100% my own.

Dig In Caramel Apple Sundae

It may be hard to imagine it, but Fall is just around the corner.  I absolutely love everything about the fall, cooler weather, football, Halloween, and of course indulging in the delicious fall flavors.  Fall baking is the best, but let's be honest fall takes a little bit longer to actually arrive here in Texas.  So while temperatures might be cooling off where you are we are still enjoying 90+ degree days, but this Salted Caramel Apple Sundae is the perfect treat to transition from summer to … [Read more...]

I couldn't wait until next year … [Read more...]
