My new year’s resolution this year was to ensure that Scott and I make it a priority to spend quality time together, both before baby #3, but also especially after. Of course I procrastinated some and got my act together by Valentine’s Day, gifting him 12 months’ worth of Date Nights (one per month). I made some dates… Continue reading A Year of Dates
PS. I’m having issues with WordPress this morning and when I preview my post, it’s not separating paragraphs which is driving me insane! I hope it works when it publishes; if not, I’m so sorry! This is going to be a totally random blog update with some odd tidbits. It actually goes along quite well… Continue reading Random: Baby Brain, Daddy Daycare Alert & More!
So I’m on a roll lately getting Landri to actually eat her healthy dinners! The key has been to involve her in the process of making them – it’s totally created “buy-in” for her and she loves being a part of it! Who knows if this will stick or work for your toddlers, but so… Continue reading Trick Your Toddler
I stumbled upon this cookbook, Salad Samurai, thanks to Amazon recommending it based upon the contents of my cart, and I was immediately sold from the title alone. And I’m very happy to report that everything I have tried so far (probably 5-7 different salads), have all been amazing, and also approved by Scott. If you’re into salads, I… Continue reading An Idea for Your Summer Tomatoes!
So I’ve dabbled with granola bars a little bit and have never really found any good ones worth making more than once except for this post. It isn’t that much protein though, so I was open to try what was being advertised as a “3 minute” protein granola bar, and I’m so glad I did! … Continue reading FAST & EASY Protein Bar Recipe
Man, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted – and I’m not really sure why?! I guess we’ve been staying pretty busy lately. And then my FaceBook post from a little bit ago inspired me to sneak in a quicky blog post while the kids are still napping (WHAT?!) to tell you guys about… Continue reading Latest Fave Cookbook
Okay, so one of my friends tagged me in a FB post about a vegan cheese recipe. It looked interesting and since I do miss the occasional ball park nacho treat from my former life, I thought I’d give the recipe a shot. The author’s introduction was pretty convincing. And while it wasn’t ball park nacho… Continue reading Scott Says: A Review of Vegan Cheese
Okay, this is definitely my new favorite (vegan) dessert. These are homemade Rolo wanna-be’s and they are oh so delicious and easy! I even caught Scott sneaking them out of the freezer and Landri went wild for them. So much so that as I hold her on my hip and type this, she’s looking at the photo screaming… Continue reading Sweet Tooth Alert: YOLO’s!!!
My recipe-posting binge is continuing today… I’ve been searching for a homemade granola bar recipe for quite some time now and had ultimately given up after several very labor intensive (unsuccessful) attempts. Every recipe I found was super complicated, time consuming, with tons of steps and ingredients, and the end results were never worth the effort. I recently… Continue reading Homemade Granola: not as bad as you think!
I feel like I’ve been on a recipe posting frenzy lately! For those of you who would rather see kid updates instead of vegan recipes, I’m so sorry, LOL! This week Landri turns 21 months and Rex turns 3 months, so I should hopefully get those out for your reading enjoyment. This means not one,… Continue reading Calling All Zucchini Gardeners!
