Crispy Potatoes and Fried Egg Taco (Braco)

Crispy potatoes deserve a post all to themselves because potatoes are life…at least they are in my book. Throw a fried egg on that, over easy and you have yourself a foodgasm! This breakfast taco has both potatoes and fried eggs with the addition of the all mighty chorizo. Can you say Yummy?!

Slushies the Grown Up Way

Remember when you were young and the weather was hot and humid and all you wanted was an ice cold slushie? You probably forgot about that, huh? Well I didn’t…I didn’t forget about the cold, icey, sugar high that came with it either! I want that refreshing feeling without the sugar crash that follows and that’s where wine slushies come in. Yes, you heard that right, wine slushies. Slushies are all grown up and as delicious as ever. Want to try them yourself? Check out my top three recipes and try one out yourself.

Rosé Wine Slushy

For this pretty pink concoction all you need is a bottle of Rosé, some Belvoir Elderflower & Rose lemonade, lavender and some ice. Blend it all together and enjoy!

Watermelon Limoncello Prosecco Slushy

This one is a little more complicated but just as yummy! To make this decadent drink you’ll need ice, proseco, watermelon, limoncello, mint, and some ice. Blend it all together and voila!

Peach Moscato Slushy

Ok, I saved the best for last. Nothing like peaches in the summer and this slushy just elevates the lovely peach taste with Moscato. The only other thing you’ll need is powdered sugar and then you’re ready to indulge in this ice cold yumminess.

She Used the “C” Word!

Good Monday morning Goody Gals! I want to discuss a topic today that hits very close to home, woman to woman competition vs. collaboration. Why is this a thing? So many women feel as though there’s only room for one powerful, beautiful, strong bad ass in their space when in reality, it’s just not true.

Goody gal tips on

This mindset is what hinders us when we are trying to be productive entrepreneurs…a lot of us just don’t know how to collaborate without feeling threatened. I’ve personally encountered this many times and it just boggles my mind. There’s enough space for all of us to boost each other up and help wherever possible.

3 Tips to Effective Collaboration

  1. SPEAK UP
    • There’s nothing that kills the vibe of a collaboration like a one-sided conversation. The purpose is to work together, speak up and share ideas…so do that!
  2. R-E-S-P-E-C-T (I hope you sang that as you read it)
    • Respect each others voice and input. You can’t have a healthy collaboration without respect.
  3. YOU BETTA RECOGNIZE
    • Be sure to recognize all ideas that are thrown on the table and give credit where credit is due. Don’t be the chick that tries to take ownership of other’s great ideas…that’s not cool man.

If you do one thing today try collaborating with a fellow Goody Gal. Believe me, you’ll walk away a stronger, smarter, more bad ass woman for it.

Get Out of the Gym!

Good morning lovelies and welcome to this beautiful spring Tuesday! We know that working out is a must for a Goody Gal but who says it has to be done in a gym? Get outside, breathe the fresh air, let the sunshine energize you as you get your workout in today. You can go running, for a brisk walk or do a full routine in the park.

Some cities have outdoor gyms so search your city to see if there is one near you. If not you can always create a routine using regular, every day park equipment.

Check out this park bench workout by Shape.com for some inspiration before heading out to get your sweat on.
