How To: Chicken Fajita Tacos

Howdy, Ya’ll!

I hope all of your are soaking up every last minute of summer (while we still have it)! One of my favorite parts about the summer is the fresh produce- almost every fruit and vegetable is in season, and accessible. Since the season is so short in the North, we must make the most of it while we can, so I do my best to cook with the local product as much a possible!

Queue the tacos!

My “Why” Behind Embarque & Co.

Howdy!

This isn’t a traditional post that is some tutorial on some yummy dessert or how to host guests in your home, but an honest heart-to-heart with the Embarque community.

I wanted to take a moment to share my, “Why” behind Embarque & Co. I started this blog almost two years ago because I felt that there was a large gap between the millennial generation, and our parents’ generation.

Boozy Book Club Appetizers

Goooooooood Day, Embarquers!

 

Last week, I hosted book club in my home, and decided upon a summer theme. Let’s be honest, do we really discuss the book at book club? Maybe for 5 minutes… We’re much more concerned about the food and drinks.

Items on the menu were: Pork-filled Jalapeño Poppers, Charcuterie Skewers, Fruit Kabob Skewers and Sarasota Lemonade.

Ready to get started? Let’s do this!

Best Brunch Bake

Hey Ya’ll!

Long time, no read… I know I’ve been MIA for a while, but… I’m Baaaaaack!

I’m going to be very transparent… I needed to take a hiatus from blogging because the blog lost the fun aspect of sharing ideas I’m living out with my followers. This will be different. This time it’s going to be on my own terms. I’m not going to create content when there is none. I’m not going to make myself post when I’m not feeling like I have anything to contribute. I’m only going to post when I sincerely believe you can use this for your life.

Enough of that! I want to share with you how to create an awesome breakfast dish, without the effort of cooking several dishes.

The Ultimate Fall Treat: Swedish Apple Pie

Happy Fall, Embarquers!

This season only seems to be only be about pumpkin (which, don’t get me wrong- I love it!); however, apples don’t get enough credit!

One of my favorite things to do on the weekend in the fall is to go to apple orchards. There are few things more beautiful than listening to the crunch on the fallen leaves beneath your boots, and feeling the cool, fresh, crisp fall air fill your lungs.

After a lovely afternoon, I came home with two large bags of Zestar and Honeycrisp apples and knew I had to put them to good use, so I consulted my mother on her favorite apple pie recipe, and we came up with this little gem. Hope you enjoy!
