10 Hot Drinks for a Cold Day

When we lived in Arizona, winter was by far our favorite season. The time of year when it was finally cool enough to open the windows and wear jeans, even if only in the morning. We loved spending time outdoors, breathing in the fresh crisp(ish) December air. Then a few years ago, we moved to North Texas. Here we have fickle winter weather, hot one day, freezing cold the next.…

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…

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…

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…

So we moved to Texas. And it feels weird. But good. Especially being around family. Last week we grilled out at my sister’s house. She lives on a canal and has the most amazing game collection. The kids challenged each other to Mrs. Pac-Man while Jeff and I faced off in Super Mario Brothers on the original Nintendo. (I won.) My dad grilled burgers and I was in charge of…

I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed lately. Overwhelmed in a good way, with many fun and rewarding opportunities coming my way, but stressed nonetheless. Even though I am not the most organized person (I think I just heard my husband snort at that)…ok, I am the owner of multiple piles in our house…anyways, too much disorganization sends my stress level into overdrive. Thankfully yesterday was Sunday, the perfect day to…

Quinoa Caprese Salad

The shifting schedule of baseball season make it easy to get lazy in the kitchen. If I’m not careful, I can easily snack my way through the days and rarely sit down to a real meal. That’s why I love making cold salads like this one. I can throw it together one afternoon, then eat it for the next few days. This salad is the perfect mix of summer flavors…
