Animal Kingdom at SXSW


This year I had the opportunity to join my Animal Kingdom marketing team and talent at our SXSW activation in Austin, Texas. I was able to capture some amazing social media content with our social agency, McBeard, while there. These videos were posted across Facebook and YouTube, while shorter cuts were posted to Instagram and Twitter. I’m so excited to share them with you all!

How to Make a Margarita + Skinny Taco Dip


One tequila, two tequila, three tequila…

Happy National Margarita Day! I’m paying tribute to this sacred tequila, triple sec and lime drink with a tutorial from Epicurious. Pair it with some skinny taco dip for a real Mexican fiesta. OlĂ©!

Skinny Taco Dip

  • 8 oz 1/3 less fat Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 8 oz reduced fat sour cream
  • 16 oz jar mild salsa
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 2 cups iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 2 large tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2.25 oz black olives


  1. Combine cream cheese, sour cream, salsa and taco seasoning in a large bowl and mix well with an electric mixer.
  2. Spread on the bottom of a large shallow glass dish.
  3. Top with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, shredded cheese and black olives.
  4. Serve with baked tortilla chips.

How to Make Chocolate Covered Strawberries


Happy Valentine’s Day! Cue the red roses, teddy bears, mushy cards and my personal favorite, chocolate covered strawberries. Since I’ve actually only made the sweets once in my life (don’t judge me – I’m not much of a chef), I thought I’d grab a tutorial from Laura in the Kitchen to share with everyone. Dip in y’all!
