Meet Jackie. She's my mom. She is the most amazing woman I know.
Her birthday is on Wednesday and I'd like to celebrate her by giving you a week of her recipes!
She has taught me that I can do anything or be anything I want to; and she herself is the perfect example of that. I am very lucky to have her in my life, not only as a mom, but also as a best friend.
She also taught me how to cook and is probably the reason why I love food so much! My mom cooks with mainly organic and all natural ingredients that are extremely healthy and powerful. She also has some traditional recipes that I will never forget enjoying as a child. These may not be as good for you, (like her killer whoopie pies!) but they are definitely amazing! I'll be sharing a little of both with you this week!
This dish is one of the most refreshing summer salads I've had. You really can't go wrong with watermelon, blueberries, and mint! And the benefits of kale are endless!
