grilled pineapple and cilantro margaritas

grilled pineapple and cilantro margaritas | ahappyfooddance.comI so meant to post this recipe right before Cinco de Mayo and then I had my blogging sabbatical and totally didn’t.  But it was too incredibly delicious not to share, so what better day to share a good stiff drink than a Friday?!  And these grilled pineapple and cilantro margaritas will not disappoint.

It shouldn’t be news that I love a good margarita – I mean it has been less than a month since I posted these roasted strawberry margaritas and it’s been less than a month since I overindulged at a local spot and spent the next day laying on the bathroom floor cursing their existence.  I guess it’s a love/hate relationship, but we’re not breaking up anytime soon.

grilled caesar salad

grilled caesar salad | ahappyfooddance.comI used to work at a big company that had this amazing cafeteria, unfortunately the company wasn’t as amazing as the cafeteria so I’m not there anymore.  But occasionally on their salad bar they would serve these grilled caesar salads that were soooo delish!

Now, I love a good caesar salad.  My fiance and I make this caesar salad almost once a week.  We’ve made it so much that he even knows the recipe by hearts, which if you knew him, is a miracle in itself.  But there’s something about the flavor of grilled romaine that just hits the spot.

raspberry swirl pound cake with lemon frosting

raspberry swirl pound cake with lemon frosting | ahappyfooddance.comAre you thinking what I’m thinking?  Like what the hell happened to me the last two weeks!  It’s been total radio silence over here except the occasional reply to a comment, but other than that… dead.silence.  Oh and I posted a cookbook review yesterday.

And you know what, I don’t have much of an excuse other than life, life happened.  In my real world job I design stores for a shoe company and we just secured a lease at a Las Vegas hotel and I was busy presenting that to the president of our company, which meant I had just enough down time to sleep, eat and stress.  Lots of stress!  Like having dreams about shoe stores stress level.

chocolate beet cupcakes with chocolate yogurt frosting

chocolate beet cupcakes with chocolate yogurt frosting | ahappyfooddance.comA few weeks back I was contact to review a cookbook, Eat Right for Your Site, that promised to be full of “recipes that focus on eye health” with “simple and approachable dishes.”  These recipes would include ingredients that would promote vision health, specifically macular degeneration.

First off, I will never say no to a cookbook…ever.  And simple and approachable are pretty much my middle name (or at least should be) so of course I said yes.
