Mexican Street Corn Salad recipe

Maybe it’s the thought of warm weather as our family prepares to head to Arizona for Spring Training, or maybe it’s the fact that I haven’t started packing yet and needed another excuse to procrastinate, but yesterday I decided that I MUST have Mexican Street Corn NOW. Obviously it’s February and I’m in Texas, far from fresh corn season, but dang it, I was determined to eat some charred corn…

Honoring the Live I’ve Been Given

I will choose to honor the life I have been given

Forget New Year’s Resolutions. Scrap that long list of goals you won’t remember three weeks from now anyway! Choose just one word. One word you can focus on every day, all year long… One word that sums up who you want to be or how you want to live. It will take intentionality and commitment, but if you let it, your one word will shape not only your year, but…

Thai Chicken Soup Recipe - 3 Ways! Cook this in a slow-cooker, pressure-cooker or on the stove. Gluten-free and delicious!

Let me tell you more about how much I love my electric pressure cooker. Yesterday I went shopping with my mom for important things like tissue poofs and $5 French wines from Trader Joe’s. By the time I got home, it was getting dark and my family was growing impatient for dinner. I had seen a promising Thai Chicken Soup recipe on Pinterest, but it was supposed to cook in…

3 Things I'm Loving Now

This past weekend, we drove to San Antonio to hang out with my cousin and his family. On our way there, we stopped in Waco to check out the Silos. You Fixer Upper fans know what I’m talking about. It was a little bit crowded, but definitely worth the stop, especially since I am now the proud owner of a #shiplap t-shirt. While in Waco, we stopped for some Torchy’s…

These paleo energy bites are so easy to make! Includes nut-free and no-bake options. Gluten-free!

I did a little food prep this afternoon. After whipping up some Roasted Sweet Potato Salad and Indian Spiced Chicken, I turned my attention to these cute little guys. I like to call them raisin nut bites but the Pinterest crowd likes to call them paleo energy bites. So as a sell-out to good blog traffic, this is what I will call them. Our family doesn’t necessarily eat paleo, but…

We stayed home for Christmas this year. No traveling meant no nasty sick bugs, and for the first time in a long time we had a peaceful and healthy Christmas. With Spring Training on the horizon, we are soaking up our final month of rest with lots of family time, extra sleep and home-cooked meals. Things are about to get crazy in our world, but for now I am giving…

More and Less

Life January 2, 2016
Instead of New Year's Resolutions, I am making a More and Less list.

As I ponder a few goals for this year and try to decide on my One Word, I started working on a “More and Less” list. Things I want to do more of and things I want to let go of a little. It seems like a non-threatening way to tiptoe my way into 2016. Here’s what I have so far… – More tea, less wine. – More grace, less…
