Casual Style

Part of my daily routine is to stroll in the park with the girls. There is something about being able to walk early morning viewing the bright green grass and hearing the birds chirp, gives me peacefulness throughout the day. 

I hope everyone has an amazing weekend, I know I will:)

Easy Home Decor

In my current home there is no room to build a walk in pantry which i have always wanted. So after I received a new item for my kitchen I flipped of excitement. It is a 3 rack shelf given to me by my father in-law the day before mothers day. This item I have been wanting since forever I'll tell you the reason down below. 

Random Fact: I am obsessed with the Food Network and Cooking Channel

On the Food Network there is a show called Chopped and it is one of my favorite shows on this channel besides Diner's, Drive-in's and Dives (I love Guy Fiery!)
On Chopped, they show the most amazing pantry a Chef can dream of. The idea and inspiration came from this specific open pantry.

I tried to utilize the very small space I have and created a mini walk-in pantry. There is still more ideas I will like to incorporate into it but for now this is all i have. I will post an updated version of my kitchen when I am done. 

Privacy in my favorite place of the house was a must in this new arrangement. So I decided to use a divider that I bought from Amazon to make the kitchen a bit more exclusive. By closing the walkway this gave me more room for storing things behind the divider without exposer and clutter. 
This also gives the dinning area more privacy to enjoy meals without having to feel like they are in the kitchen.

 This was just a teeny change that made a huge difference in this space. I hope you all enjoyed this post. For more fun ideas and random pictures follow me on GifBoom and Instagram NYTrendyMoms

Hip hip hurray for more awesomeness!

Mini Bobs

 This recipe was inspired by shish kabobs. I try to cut carbs as such as I can and when I can. So I made this healthier(not really) alternative to the very popular street food. I hope everyone tries out this recipe, it's o'so good!

 Things you'll need for the mini bobs- 2 servings
  • 1 cup of diced red onions 
  • 1/3 of a cup of diced spanish green peppers 
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 lb of ground beef
Things you'll need for the salad
  • half of 1 tomato 
  • half of 1 cucumber
  • 2 hands full of baby arugula 
  • 2 tablespoons of your favorite salad dressing

 Mix all the ingredients for the mini bobs with a fork and shape them into small balls

I prefer using a fork because the mimi bobs come out juicy and fluffy on the inside. If using your hands do not over work the meat, if so, it will turnout tough and dry. Just keep that in mind.  

 Fry the mini meaty goodness on medium high heat, in 1 inch of Olive oil. Turning once, 2 minutes on each side. Once done, place them on paper towels to remove excess oil. 

I use Olive oil because it is the lightest and healthiest oil. 

 Chop the tomato and cucumber into small cubes. 

 Add your choice of dressing and toss. 

How easy was that? 
I hope everyone enjoyed reading and viewing the pictures. Come back soon:)
