Celery + Apple Green Smoothie

Celery and Apple Green Smoothie

I kicked off the year by going dairy free. At least for a little while.  It’s going OK. I honestly feel great. I’ve known for awhile that my body would be much happier sans dairy, but still, it’s never easy giving up something you love. I mean, I did have a dream about cheese the […]

Hazelnut Ricotta Pancakes

hazelnut ricotta pancakes

Big fan of pancakes here. I have a staple recipe, but every now and again I’m out of one ingredient or another and have to be creative. Sometimes, that creativity is magic and today, that magic is called hazelnut ricotta pancakes. Lordy, lordy, these were divine! Are divine. Totally making them again. And, sharing the recipe […]

Free Printable — Laundry Room Art

Apparently I’m on a laundry kick, because I’m back with more laundry talk!  Over the long weekend I decided it was time to give the walls of my laundry room some love. And so, I typed up this “very me” piece of artwork. It says, “Sort today, wash tomorrow, fold maybe, iron never”. Which is all […]

Doing — An Instagram sale. Prep for my sister’s bridal shower – eek! Wallpapering. Summer is always full of such random projects! Watching — I can’t even remember the last time I watched a TV show. The summer line up isn’t my jam. I did watch The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society on Netflix though … […]

Sunshine Smoothie

Sunshine Smoothie

I’ve been experimenting with smoothies quite a bit lately. They make for a perfect, easy lunch alongside cheese and crackers … because you all know this mama ain’t starting up the oven for dino nuggets in the heat of the day! Some of my smoothies have been BIG wins and others, well, let’s just say that the […]

2018 Summer Bucket List

summer bucket list

In the vein of my word of the year, the kids are crafting seasonal bucket lists. Well, that’s the plan at least, we’ve got our summer one ready and come fall and winter, we’ll brainstorm for those too. Bucket lists are great because they give us all something to look forward to, and, as you’ll see, apparently give me […]

Greek Quinoa Salad

Greek Quinoa Salad

My cooking is super seasonal. It’s all soups and pasta in the fall and winter and sandwiches and salads in the summer. So, since the warm weather has arrive (and seems to be staying), I’ve been rolling out all my favorite salad recipes! This week a friend and I made Greek Quinoa Salad in a […]

Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs

Instant Pot Hard Boiled Egg

Friends, I bought my Instant Pot in 2016.  Then I shamefully let it sit in the box. In the cupboard. For months. I knew I’d probably love it, but I was so hesitant to get started. New stuff is just hard. Especially for someone who likes schedules and predictability. And I just couldn’t bring myself to […]

Truly Custom Invites

Brunch

This post is sponsored by Basic Invite.  Eight moves in ten years, ya’ll. And we’re over it! The packing is killer. The transition is hard on everyone. The “Where are we going next and when?” is unsettling. But thankfully, it’s over! We’re ready to plant some deep roots and stay for a long while in this […]
