It’s been a while since I’ve shared a recipe on here and I’m excited to be finally breaking the streak! I really do enjoy cooking and sharing recipes, but before we moved… I wasn’t spending much time in the kitchen. Sam’s work and commute hours didn’t allow for us to ever eat together, so we often fended for ourselves or I’d made easy food that could be heated up for quick leftovers. Now that we’re moved and in a new chapter of life, I’m so excited to get back into cooking and sharing some of my “blog-worthy creations” (as my taste-tester husband, likes to call them…ha!) with y’all! So here’s the first of many!
Warning: today’s post is kinda random. But I felt by me confessing something, perhaps there are others out there reading that are in the same boat and we can start a support group and get inspired together 😉 Okay, so here goes. Here’s my confession: I love cookbooks. BUT…
One year ago today, I pressed ‘publish’ to make this website go live and share it for the whole world to read and see! I was excited, happy, and incredibly nervous… but knew that my prayers leading up to that point led me to ultimately feel like going live just felt ‘right’.
Happy Hump Day! Any chance your 2017 goals revolve around being a bit more healthy? Or are you just trying to sneak in a few more fruits and veggies into the diet after what felt like holiday party after party? I’m certainly in both of these boats, so I wanted to share my current favorite go-to smoothie that I’ve been sipping on lately!
Unless you’re the true Mrs. Claus… you’re likely still wrapping gifts, crossing off last-minute to-do’s, and trying to squeeze in all of the festive Christmas things this week! To help you get into the spirit that much more, warm up after being out in the cold, or even help in terms of a non-alcoholic beverage idea for hosting Christmas parties or meals with family and friends… I wanted to share with y’all my absolute favorite Christmas recipe that has been in my family for years!
Happy October! I say this every year, but the autumn season seems to always fly by in a flash. It’s as if I sip my Pumpkin Spice Latte and blink and it’s the Christmas season! But I think that’s why I love fall so much…. it’s the season preparing us for Christmas! Either way, it always tends to go by so darn quick, so today I wanted to share my fall to-do/bucket list of things I want to be intentional about doing before the busyness of the holidays kicks in!
Happy Monday! I don’t know about y’all, but I loathe going to the grocery store over the weekend. It’s just the pits, is it not? Too crowded and too overwhelming. So, I usually save my shopping for Mondays. Feel like that’s too quick of a turn around to meal plan and make dinner come Monday night? It doesn’t have to be! These easy fajitas can be on your dinner table tonight in less than 20 minutes!
Happy Fourth of July Weekend, friends! I’m writing to you with the sound of boats in distance on the lake, birds chirping, and coffee in hand. It’s as lovely as it sounds!
Hello, Taco Tuesday! It’s my favorite (eating) day of the week! Taco Tuesday is truly a must in our home, as we both could eat Mexican food like there’s no tomorrow. So even though you’ll often find us eating tacos or other Mexican faire multiple times throughout the week, Tuesday night’s tacos have become a tradition. And what pairs ever so perfectly with our routine? A classic margarita.
Happy Monday, readers! As per usual, the weekend blew by in a flash and this Monday feels slightly overwhelming to me. Anyone else in this boat? I will say that though our weekends lately have been a mad dash from one thing to the next, I’ve been making it a point to spend a bit more time in the kitchen here and there so we’re not eating out every weekend meal. Because cooking has needed to be ‘quick’ lately, I don’t always feel like what I’m whipping up is quite ‘blog worthy’. But these jalapeño cheddar cornbread muffins? Oh, these are soooo blog worthy.
