Lactation Cookies

While its staying light out later and the weather in the 50's I couldn't help but want to grill! Nothing fancy except Bubba Burgers, Applegate Hot Dogs and Sweet Potato fries. I also made the Instapot Creamy Gnocchi Soup from a few weeks ago so that will last us! With...

Chicken Sausage!

This week I used a lot of chicken sausage to change it up.  Chicken Sausage Breakfast Frittata, Chicken Sausage Veggie Casserole and Lemon Spinach Scallop Linguine. Bought cold cuts for my husband since he doesn't care about eating bread, or he can grab leftovers and...

Buffalo Chicken Chili and French Onion Soup

When will it be getting warmer out?? What a tease we had a few weeks ago with weather in the 50's. This cold just makes you want to have soup and chili and stay in on the couch. So that is exactly what we are doing! We really have the same items for breakfast each...

INSTANT POT CREAMY GNOCCHI SOUP

Gumbo, Stuffed Plantains and Brownies, oh my!

I don't know about you, but meal prepping is really helping with the craziness the week can bring and also keeps us on track of eating healthy during the week. I'm really enjoying the variety of these meals, making enough for the week and again also realizing how much...

Snow Day Meal Prep

Well that "snow day" was a bust! I think I would have rather had some snow so we could have gotten out and played in it, rather then sitting inside because it was raining and then freezing cold! But being inside helped me meal prep for the week, so something good came...

Weekly Meal Prep

I have to say, last weeks meal planning and preparing went great! We ate all the food prepared, even into the weekend, so that stopped us from going out to eat, which we tend to do Friday to Sunday. We always try to not do it, but by Friday we always want something...

New Year Reset

If you're anything like me, the last few weeks have gotten out of control: routine, sleeping, eating right and working out. I've resolved, like I do most Mondays to be better, but this time for real! I've always liked healthy foods, but something about the holidays...

Healthy Chip Alternative: Baked Parmesan Zucchini Rounds

I am one to admit, I have a craving for salty snacks, especially chips. I can eat a whole family sized bag of chips in one sitting (don’t know if I should brag about that, but it is true!) This salty food craving inspired me to find a healthy alternative to potato chips. Ever since I found this recipe from Five Heart Home, I seriously crave these more than I ever craved potato chips!
