Mango Cilantro Mojitos


I don’t know what it’s like where you are but it’s H-O-T here in the desert!  And these mango cilantro mojitos are EXACTLY what I need to cool off.  So refreshing, so summery, so perfectly tasty and great!  I can’t get enough of them.  Well, technically I suppose I CAN, but I don’t want to!  New favorite mojito for sure!  I hope you love them as much as I do.  xx- Sarah   {Recipe and photos produced in collaboration with Sarah Dickenson for A House in the Hills}

And as promised, I’m back with Jen’s second recipe for today!  Doesn’t this mango, black bean and corn salad look like exactly what you want to eat for lunch?!  Such fresh summer flavor, so satisfying on a hot summer day (of which we have a limited amount left, so get chopping!).  Recipe and a bit from Jen after the jump!  xx- Sarah

From Jen Lauren Grant:

I’m so excited to be guest posting for Sarah while she’s away! I love A House in the Hills and have gotten many of my favorite healthy recipes from here. I can’t quite invent recipes from scratch yet, but years ago my dear friend Melissa gave me this mango, avocado, and black bean salad recipe.  It’s quick, healthy, delicious, and doesn’t even require any cooking!  I hope you enjoy!

sometime last fall i developed an obsession with popcorn and it’s turned into an every night thing: me and a giant bowl of popcorn watching the real housewives of wherever or some other bravo tv embarassment.  i can resist the popcorn just about as well as i can resist a housewives reunion show.  NOT AT ALL!  EVER!  so these sweet balls (heh) are a natural progression for an over zealous popcorn lover like myself.  and if i had children, these would be my go-to snack to satisfy their sweet tooths without getting them all hopped up on sugar.  hope you love!  xx sarah  {more after the jump}
