Lasagna Soup

Anyone else willing fall to actually happen? It’s September. Today’s high is 90 degrees. The boots in my closet are weeping. I moved all the shorts and swim suits out of my dresser yesterday in an act of defiance against this stupid weather. Come on summer, we are so over you. Know when to quit….

Walking Tacos

Before we start we need to have an understanding. Before you read this post, go ahead and just put away all those opinions and strongly held feelings you carry about processed food and healthy eating. This is party food.

Bacon Sweet Potato Hash

If we’re being really honest here today, I logged onto my computer to post how I’ve been making cold brew and iced coffee (two different things folks).

Homemade Spaghetti Sauce

SpaghettiSauce

I used to think homemade spaghetti sauce meant buying a jar of Prego and adding some browned ground beef to it. We don’t even eat spaghetti all that often but I recently had dinner with our small group and someone brought a homemade meat sauce, or spaghetti sauce. However you call it. Anyway, it rocked…

A birthday, a cake, & some pulled pork…

IsaacsBirthday

Isaac turned one. So…that happened. I’m still in denial, I try to rock him to sleep sometimes and he just looks at me like I’m nuts. Like “seriously mom, I got this”. He weighed in a 28 lbs. Yowza. Anna is four and she weighs 35 lbs. It’s officially really expensive to feed him. It…

Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup

Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup

Uh…where to start? I just wrote you a whole paragraph and then said to myself “no one cares about that, that story was lame and stupid”, so I deleted it. I’m tired. This whole working out at 5:30 in the morning business is for the birds. Sorry Mr. Sweeter Thing, but it is. All I…
