Green Monster Smoothie

For a long time I was mega scared to sip on green smoothies. They were just so … green!!! It’s like, I wanted to be healthy and love them, but green liquids felt borderline sketchy. But, one day while visiting a friend in Seattle, she introduced offered to blend me up her famous Green Monster […]

Blueberry Blintzes

With Spring around the corner I’m all “goodbye oatmeal, hello fresh flowers and brunch perfect recipes”! And that, my loves, is why my sister and I plated up blueberry blintzes for breakfast yesterday. Hannah is visiting from Texas this week and crepes/blintzes are her specialty. They’re a little time consuming, but totally worth it. Blintzes taste just […]

Banana Apple Oat Muffins

It’s not a secret that my Max struggles with food. Well, not all food, just healthy food. He loves chocolate and carbs. I guess he is like me … but with less self-control. Breakfasts are especially a struggle. He does like scrambled eggs, but honestly, we don’t always have time for a hot breakfast around […]

Steel Cut Oats — JUST LIKE JAMBA JUICE!

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

Forever and always I’ve been a lover of Jamba Juice’s steel cut oats. Topped with brown sugar and banana slices, of course. When I was pregnant with Jemma I made Jamba a routine stop most mornings.

Christmas Eve is tomorrow which means you must which up this recipe stat! It’s seriously the coziest breakfast to have ready to go (I recommend prepping the night before) for family gatherings and holidays.

Sour Cream Pancakes

This summer our pastor spoke quite a bit about building community and being proactive in our lives beyond church. I’ll admit, I often find myself overwhelmed with my day to day duties as a mom and the idea of “building” and being “proactive” sounds like too big of a commitment for my schedule. Just the same, […]

Eons ago I shared this recipe (apparently, before you took photos of your food!). Slow cooker apple oatmeal continues to be a family favorite for us, especially around back to school time. My mama, the kiddo’s Mimi, is living with us this school year and in honor of her first day at school we had this cozy […]

Oven Bacon

I’m up late watching the After Rose Finale – weeks late, I know. The Bachelor/ette is really such a train wreck, I really can’t stand it. And yet, here I am snuggled on the couch, watching trash and getting ready to share something amazing with you — bacon! But not just any bacon, bacon that […]
