It’s hard to believe that there was once a time I couldn’t cook anything other than a baked potato or Top Ramen. Not wouldn’t…couldn’t. I still love a baked potato and Top Ramen. But, well, it’s nice to know how to cook. Want to know how to be a better cook? Stop eating meat for a decade. Too drastic? How about a couple of months? No, no. Hear me out....more
For some reason, school starting always makes me want to be super healthy. If you've been around for any number of years, you know that pretty much every August I randomly decide that we're not eating cereal for breakfast anymore. That breakfast is going to be freshly cooked, super healthy, and include an entire bunch of kale....more
My husband and I own and operate a small business which has given me the flexibility to make my own hours and work from home; a wonderful benefit to any busy parent. That situation changed when our shop moved to a new location and I was needed on site so I packed up all my files and my 10-key calculator and settled into a small office in our new building. Back when I worked from home, lunchtime just wasn't that big of a deal - half a sandwich, a light salad with some protein, or a bowl of soup....more
These days my alarm clock goes off anywhere between 6-6:30am... and by alarm clock I mean Ford. He's like his mama who thrives on rising early. We like to get our day started and get things done! I bring him downstairs to snuggle on the couch while he drinks his milk cup and after a quick diaper change, we are usually out on our morning walk....more
Do you have a picky toddler or child in your house? Well I do. Having a picky eater in your house can make meal time hard. I shouldn't complain too much because my son will eat almost all the fruits, vegetables, nuts and cheese that I put in front of him....more
I absolutely love that many of the convenience foods that are available to us today are also healthy. Take, for example, the MorningStar Farms line of products. Their frozen products are so incredibly easy to prepare for a quick veggie burger/sandwich....more
I have four of the cutest boys around. They light up my world and I'm grateful for them every day, even the hard days. My pregnancies weren't challenging, like I know some women's can be. But I did gain weight with every single baby. For some reason, I had a difficult time losing it....more
When we bought our house, one minor drawback was the size of the backyard. It's, well, tiny. I happen to love that aspect of it because I do not have to leave my perch to know where Thing 1 and Thing 2 are at any given moment. Mike, however, wanted a place where he could entertain people and grill out like a man. Understandable....more
During the summer our house sometimes feels like a hotel because we have friends and family staying with us almost every weekend. I think that's just one of the benefits of living in a fun city like Chicago. Because oddly enough we never had a lot of people asking to come stay with us when we lived in Topeka, Kansas for those long seven months long, long ago......more
I don’t know about you, but after the crazy winter we had I am relishing in every moment this summer has to offer. It’s so important to spend time enjoying sunshine, life, and friends. After searching our schedules and finally finding a day that worked for all of us, my friends came over for a Fiesta Burger Bar featuring my favorite MorningStar Farms product: the Spicy Black Bean Burger....more
