Vegan Rotel Dip Recipe 2.0 (Virtually Homemade This Time!)

Happy Friday Fabbies! Today’s recipe is SO long overdue ya’ll. If you’ve been following me or this blog for a while, then you know that I posted my original vegan rotel dip recipe almost 3 years ago. You can find the original recipe here. I would make rotel dip often, for our kids’ weekly movie nights or for whenever we wanted some. I’ve made vegan rotel dip for many of my friends and family as well. I also made some vegan rotel dip for a group of fabulous non-vegan folks back in December 2017 when I went to Art Basel to be a part of my friend Billy Joe’s epic art exhibition, and they loved it! (You can see how that Art Basel weekend all went down on my Youtube Channel here.) That vegan rotel dip has been a fave for many of you readers too! The original recipe I posted almost 3 years ago is still one of my most viewed posts on this blog, and people have messaged me saying they have made it and loved it!

What To Wear On A First Date

Happy Thursday Fabbies! How is everyone’s summer going? (Or winter, depending on where ever you are in the world). The summer weather here in San Miguel de Allende is pretty mild, which is a pretty big change considering I’m coming from the hot desert that is Arizona. During the day, it is typically anywhere from 75 degrees to 85 degrees, and the mornings and evenings are cool, where it feels like its Fall. Plus, it rains here! It never rained in Arizona haha! It’s raining right now as we speak actually, creating the perfect backdrop of sound as I write this blog post. Anywho, today’s post is all about outfits and storytelling! It’s been a good minute since I’ve posted a “What To Wear” post, so today’s blog will be about what to wear on a 1st Date! (And if you’re past the “1st date stage and are already boo-ed up, this post will give you date night ideas for the future too. 😉 Continue reading “What To Wear On A First Date”

Homemade Salsa Recipe! (You’ll Never Want to Buy Salsa in a Jar Again!)

Happy Friday Fabbies! If you read my “birthday” blog post, I mentioned that I’ve been making a lot of food homemade, namely dips and sauces.

You only need a handful of ingredients, a blender (or food processor) and your taste buds to taste it! Continue reading “Homemade Salsa Recipe! (You’ll Never Want to Buy Salsa in a Jar Again!)”

It’s My 5 Year Blog Anniversary! (And Let’s Also Celebrate Because I’ve Kept The Same Hair Color For 6 Months!)

Hello There Fabbies! Today marks year FIVE that http://www.fabandravenous.com has been up and running. Can you believe that?! FIVE. YEARS. That’s how long it takes to graduate college for some people! (or high school depending on if teachers was hating with the grades hahaha). Five years is how long it takes me to do Zé’s hair. Five years is how long I’ve been sketching designs. Five years is how long it takes me to fold laundry after it’s been sitting in the basket all week. Five years is almost all of Vito’s life! Five years is a long time to be doing anything if you ask me. And well, here I am, five years later: still blogging!

I Moved To Mexico!

Well hello there Fabbies! Whew! It’s been 3 months since I’ve last spoken to you guys. And I promise it is for good reason. I was simply hibernating for the winter and waiting for Spring to come so I could blog again. Hahaha just kidding. The reality is, since the start of 2019, (well, really at the end 2018 too), my family and I have been preparing for our huge move…to MEXICO! If you follow me on Instagram and have seen some of my IG Stories, then you may already know that Supreme, the kids and I all moved to Mexico at the beginning of March. San Miguel de Allende to be exact. And let me tell you: It has been nothing short of an amazing, busy, whirlwind journey across the border. But we are here. In our new home. In a whole new country to continue this wild journey of our free-spirited lives. In this blog post, I will tell you why we decided to choose Mexico, how the process of the moving abroad went, and what we plan to do while living here. Continue reading “I Moved To Mexico!”

New Orleans-Style Vegan Gumbo Recipe!

Happy Wednesday Fabbies! Ya girl has been busy! Whew! Like for real. I am actually working on a few blog posts at a time (and also planning a Non-Profit event in Memphis, but more on that later), including the one I do at the end of each year, which is my “Favorite Looks Of The Year” post. As I was working on that post, which basically shows all of my favorite outfits and hairstyles of the whole year, I was looking at my pictures from my trip down to New Orleans for Brittanii’s Bachelorette weekend, and started thinking about the food there! THEN I was watching one of my favorite YouTube Vloggers, Earth Mama Medicine, and she made some soup that looked bomb! So couple seeing the soup with seeing the New Orleans pictures,  I got the bright idea to try and make my own vegan version of some gumbo!! So I did.

Homemade “Honey” Mustard Recipe (But Not made with Honey ;)

Happy Tuesday Fabbies! So as promised, I told you guys that I would share some recipes with you this month. And I figured a sauce a week should be good right?! But I will say this, when it comes to eating a healthier diet, and making things yourself, it would definitely behoove you to invest in a blender AND/or food processor. And I use the word “invest” lightly. These days you can get blenders and food processors for under $30. Having these things will make your time in the kitchen so much quicker and easier. And the recipes you can make using a blender alone are endless. I literally use my blender every day to make smoothies, sauces, dips, or whatever. Throw the food in there and blend! So if you don’t already, treat yourself to a blender and food processor, and let those things do all the work for you. You deserve it!

Hey Fabbies! Whew! It’s been a while right?! Pardon me pardon me! I’m not gonna say “I’ve been sooooo busy!” or anything predictable like that, but I will say, blogging has definitely been put on the back burner for the last few months. (I mean, this post was supposed to be posted November 21st on my actual birthday!) But no worries because I am back!  … Continue reading 36th Trip Around The Sun
