I wanted to do a post on the Cinco de Mayo-ish recipes I have on the blog. Except I realized that I didn’t have a lot of them.
Instead, I’m going to share with you some of my favorite southwestern and summer recipes! Enjoy
Cinco de Mayo-ish
Refreshing and healthy
Completely customizable and tasty
I love this dish. It’s spicy and super flavorful

Snackity Snacks and Breakfast Goodies
Chickpea and Avocado Spread (v/gf)
I love this spread. I put it on basically everything. It’s very refreshing
Fresh Summer Fruit Salad (v/gf)
This is completely customizable to preference or what is in season. I love to have some kind of fruit salad in the fridge at all times!
Super easy and very tasty. Try it with chickpeas too!
Vegan Cornbread (v)
This is the BEST cornbread I’ve ever made and it just so happens to be VEGAN too. Try it with chili or at a barbecue–I’m sure everyone will enjoy it.
Crunchy, sweet, and customizable!
This is the perfect Sunday breakfast. Or Wednesday if you need a pick me up.
Blueberries and lemon. C’mon, there really aren’t combos much better than this!
I love these bars. They are super creamy and tart. Since oranges aren’t really in season any more, try lemons!

This unusual torte is perfect for a summer party!
Peaches and strawberries are the stars in this sweet cake. This is another seasonal favorite!
These cookies are a crunchy, sweet, surprise. You should bring them to your next potluck.

These cookies are some of my favorite. Plus, they are loaded with tasty “flu-fighting” ingredients!
Cool and creamy, this key lime pie is so wonderful on a hot summer day. It’s wonderfully tart, but also sweet.
Do you love chocolate? Make this pie. It’s light (in texture, not calories haha), creamy, and rich in flavor
This salad takes advantage of some of summers most delicious veggies and fruits.
Quick and delicious!
This pasta is loaded with fresh veggies. You can use whatever you have at home and it will surely be delicious

This pasta salad is a healthy and flavorful side dish. It’s perfect for a potluck dinner
Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad (v/gf)
This is another favorite salad. It’s cool, filling, and loaded with flavor.
