Lisa’s Luscious Licks: Healthy dishes with an occasional indulgence on the side

I was recently in NY visiting my family and my mom and I started talking about how she should start blogging her recipes. She has some killer ones, man. So delicious. But now she’s eating healthy and is finding healthy foods that still taste good. So I convinced her to be a guest blogger on here. Although I will be the one to actually post them since she doesn’t know how to blog and doesn’t really have a desire to figure it all out :). So this will be blog post number one from my new guest poster, my mom!

Strawberry season is just winding down here, so I thought this would be a good recipe to start with.┬á Strawberries and lime make the perfect pair–kind of like the large museum guard girl and the caveman in “Night at Museum: Secret of the Tomb”. ­čÖé
