Cauli Title 1

I don’t know about y’all, but I have had the hardest time staying warm this winter!

Temperatures outside have varied so widely,
{t-shirts one day, mukluks the next!}
and because our house is 100+ years old, it’s so stinkin’ drafty!

We’ve spent the winter holed up in two rooms huddled under piles of blankets,
doors closed, and space heaters running.
And that’s barely taken the edge off!

Because of all this bone-chilling cold, all I seem to be craving is soup.

I think Friday probably has to be my favorite day of the week.

Something about a week full of stresses finally signed & sealed with a weekend full of relaxation ahead…you just can’t top it!

On Friday nights, we always like to play around with new takes on recipes
that have been longstanding family favorites:
unique burgers, fun pizzas, piled high nachos… you get the idea.
(Sort of like our #throwbackthursdays, but not quite)


This week, winter has come back full force (ugh!),
so we dec...

Here I come to save the day!
Once again, I’m here with menu help!

One of my favorite things in the world is to turn a ‘to-do list’ into a ‘to-done list’,
and letting me help you plan your meals means you’re just that much closer!

Feb6-12, 2017

The weather here has still been crazy- cold then hot then cold again,
and it seems like Spring is a million years away.

But this week, I was channeling Spring as I created this menu.
Adding in more fresh veggies and lightening up heavier winter-y meals.

The meals f...

My kids are pancake fanatics.

Seriously, they would eat them for every meal, in every shape and/or form you could create.

Crepes? Check.
Pancake muffins? Done.
Clafouti? You bet.
Pancake dipped apple & bacon slices? Boom
.

It used to be they were reserved only for weekends when my husband and I had enough time to pull together a proper pancake breakfast. But ever since I became a stay-at-home mom, I find myself with enough time and energy to lovingly make them for breakfast several times a week.

As if!

Welcome to Tuesday…Tasty Travels Tuesday, that is!

This is the day each week that I make an ethnic dish of some sort. My goal in this attempt is to introduce my kids to unique and interesting cuisines they may never experience otherwise.

Growing up in the South, I cut my teeth on soul food, comfort food, and sweet tea. And while these are all still my favorites (much to the chagrin of my waistline), I knew I needed to branch out beyond standard ethnic fare...

Hi guys!

Welcome to Throwback Thursday!

This week I’m cooking a delicious, healthy take on a family favorite…

MEATLOAF!

Don’t get me wrong…I LOOOOOVE regular meatloaf.

But it’s not exactly figure friendly.

Breadcrumbs, full fat ground beef, whole eggs…you get the gist.

So imagine my delight when I came across a recipe for Turkey & Quinoa Meatloaf in my new ‘Love It, Cook It, Eat It’ cookbook by Weight Watchers!

(you can find the recipe here)

I’ll admit I was a little unsure of the ingredients at first.
