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, […]

Yesterday I shared about one of my favorite kiddo breakfasts and today, it’s all about the me! You didn’t think I would skip the most important meal of the day, did you? And, if you know anything about me, the most important meal includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks throughout and dessert, of course! So, next week begins our new school routine, my […]

Honestly, it’s a little odd because I usually gravitate towards beef during pregnancy and turn my nose up at chicken, but I suppose nothing beats the aromatic spices of […]
