Smoky Vegetarian Breakfast Burrito

It's getting pretty ridiculous: I'm way too frequent a flyer at the coffee shop near my house. And, no, it's not for the coffee. I mean, the coffee is totally fine but it's all about the Breakfast Burrito for me. I never knew I could like a Breakfast Burrito sooo much until I tried the Smoky Brekfast Burrito at Cofax Coffee.

Wake Up Juice {Carrot, Orange, Pineapple Juice}

We live by the philosophy that every rule has an exception  and one such exception was at Rancho Pescadero where we fell head-over-heels for this juice. A little sweet, totally refreshing, and just enough ginger to get you going, it was the ideal way to start our mornings there.

Cheater's Super Simple Chicken Posole

Look, we're all for authenticity but sometimes ease beats it out. And yet we don't think laziness should get in the way of deliciousness. So we've compromised with this posole recipe – it's all the deep rich flavors classic to a posole, but with the brightness of tomatillos, and topped with all your super fixins.

Spicy Guava Cadillac Margarita Cocktail
