If you’re on the look out for a $50 Target gift card, Halloween goodies and some of this all for free … read on! Jemma joined the Pre-K forces this last week. She loves it. Pretty much obsessed. Basically, after her first day (on Wednesday), I reminded her that Thursday would be a home day […]

Slow Cooker Apple Oatmeal

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

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 […]

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 […]

Semi-Homemade Indian Rice Pudding

One thing that has consistently sounded delicious throughout this pregnancy is chicken tikka masala, Indian rice, naan and Indian rice pudding from our favorite Indian restaurant.

We’re having creamy pesto chicken pasta tonight and the little one might have some bites, but THIS is his main dish! My Texas sister is the ultimate cook.

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 […]

A Whole 30 Story


It’s March 1st, well, the eve of March 1st, so I’m guessing a handful of you kicked off Whole 30 today? Am I right? I’ll confess. I’ve been there and done that – the excitement and meal prep and all the good intentions because I truly believe Whole 30 is awesome. Sadly, I fell off that […]
