Sweet Potato Protein Breakfast Bowl

Sick of oatmeal for breakfast? Try a sweet potato breakfast to change it up! Bonus: it’s gluten-free, high in protein, nutrients, smart carbs, and customizable.  I’ve been a little bit breakfast bored lately. It’s my favorite meal of the day, but it’s also the most frantic. I’m usually trying to feed Liv and P at…

Mediterranean chicken bake

This is a family-friendly recipe that even a discerning preschooler went crazy for. Spiced chicken combines beautifully with warm feta, tomatoes and a fresh mint-cucumber salad. It’s a perfect “I don’t know what to do with this chicken” recipe. When the Pilot first left for his training, I still had the splint on my hand…

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? I have a massage today that I’ve been looking forward to for weeks. It’s going to be so amazing… and I always have to remind myself not to smile like a creeper during it. And then there’s the drool. Just kidding; that never happens. Speaking of massages…. have I…

Chocolate Protein Donuts

This morning was a miracle of happiness when the girls slept in until 8am this morning. I woke up and was like, “Where am I? What just happened?!” and it was probably the most beautiful thing ever. Needless to say, I think we were all a little zonked after our whirlwind trip to Disney. I started…

1 hour, $60, 5 days of daytime eats

That’s breakfast, lunch and a snack each day! PLUS, everything is gluten-free. So last time I did a similar post to this one, I counted a lot of pantry essentials. I later realized that a few items may not commonly be on hand , and for that reason the title was skewed. Fail to meeeeee.…

Apple Spice Amazeballs

This is for all of the friends out there who are pumpkin-ed out.  It’s also one of those things where I just put a bunch of ingredients in the food chopper, said a prayer, and hoped it would work out. Thankfully, it did, and they are DELICIOUS.

March Madness is officially heeeeeeere. I look forward to this all year, and it always go by so quickly! Trying to savor it. I’ve spent some time this morning working on my bracket, and do this every time a Sportscenter announcer says they believe Arizona will make it to the Final Four.   (This is…

working on my mussels

Lots of seafood ahead… But first, these bunnies! I picked them up at Home Goods as an effort to add some Easter-ish decor and they look just like the foil-covered chocolate bunnies. Sadly, there is no chocolate inside, but they’re pretty cute. 🙂 How was your weekend? Hope you had a great one! On Friday,…

Slow cooker detox chicken

Hi friends! How’s the day going? It’s been a great one over here, most of it is attributed to the fact that it’s warm and glorious.  Quick trip to the beach: Some more adventures from lately: Liv asked for pancakes before she went to bed last night, so I had fresh Mickey face ‘cakes waiting…

Crispy Chocolate Coconut Protein Bars

This is just ridiculous. Before we talk protein bars, let’s talk about The Bachelor. DID YOU WATCH IT?! Are they really trying for ratings this season or what? The tupperware joke. I’m still cringing bahaha. I loved that they saved the normal people for the last round, for the most part. Good TV.  So, yesterday…
