It’s Up To Us

ChildhoodCancerAwareness1

Did you know September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month? After Max’s hemihypertrophy scare which resulted in an ultrasound screening for an abdominal tumor last year I’ve become much more aware of childhood cancers and the fight against them. Through my involvement I have met two amazing moms, Gretchen and Emily. This year, they both participated in a […]

Smoothie Packs

I’m the kind of cook who has grand aspirations and fails about half the time. Especially when it comes to a healthy and filling breakfast. Those cookies from the previous night are just so tempting some times, but definitely not an appropriate breakfast! I’ve learned my lesson with this recently while trying to explain to […]

Strawberry Cream Muffins

With strawberries in full swing, we’ve been whipping up quite a few very berry treats, one of which is these delicious strawberry cream muffins from my mama’s recipe arsenal. This is our third year munching on these muffins with fresh strawberries and I couldn’t wait to snack on a batch this summer. I was lucky […]
