MY EASY LUNCH MAKING HACK & PRINTABLE

  School is starting for everyone and with school days come lunches to pack every day! The girls are going to a half day school program that includes lunch but usually by Friday’s every week, I find myself repeating the same things or I’m standing in front of my refrigerator willing something to jump out at me. I have one guideline for myself when it comes to packing lunches and it’s that they have to…

PEACH COBBLER

Fresh fruit is always my favorite sign of summer and the peaches are tasting better than ever this time of year. We live on fresh strawberries, watermelon, blueberries and peaches in the summer. Addison has been loving all the peaches lately and it’s so cute to see her walking around eating a giant peach, juice dribbling down her chin in the sunlight. Amelia is still not too interested in them but all the more for…

WHOLE 30: WEEK 3 UPDATE& PLANTAIN NACHOS RECIPE

i haven’t been on here much lately and i have lots to say (trust me, i have at least six posts written and ready to hit publish already) but i needed to get this one out of the way and not just ignore my big goal of successfully doing whole30 this month. i talked about it enough with y’all and i like to stay as transparent as i can with you. truth is, whole30 is…

it’s time for a quick update on week one of whole30. we’re on to week two already but before we get to that, let me give you a quick recap. it went a lot better than i thought it would, perhaps because i’ve already done a week one of whole30 before so i sort of knew what to expect. again, my entire goal for whole30 is NOT to lose weight. i am completely happy with…

WHY WHOLE 30 ISN’T WORKING & HOW I’…

A NEW BOOK FOR YOUR MEAL PLANNING …

in the last two or three months, i’ve gotten in to meal planning and taken serious pleasure in sitting down on a friday or saturday night after the girls go to bed, lighting a candle, and breaking out my cookbooks and meal planning notepad to put together our dinners for the following week. i love flipping through the pages and dreaming of what x, y, or z will taste like based off the pictures or…

MARSHMALLOW DREAM BARS

a few months back, i wandered off into barnes and noble for some tried and true r&r time while addison was off gallivanting the town with her daddy. every once in a while when i’m there, i’ll treat myself to a little treat from starbucks, i just don’t think it gets much better than wandering aisles and aisles of books with a delicious warm drink in your hand. this specific time, the marshmallow bar looked…
