A Pot That Keeps Your Coffee Hot

If you were a coffee shop kinda gal pre-baby, then you probably experienced a rather abrupt wake-up call after your sweet little bundle entered the picture. After all, coffee shops aren't quite as appealing with a babe in arms. It's just not as convenient to pack up your baby, drive to the nearest coffee shop, […]

Breakfast for Dinner

Every once in awhile it's fun to "change things up" a bit and make breakfast for dinner.  Scrambled eggs, blueberry pancakes, belgian waffles with strawberries and whipped cream, fresh honeydew melon, etc. Breakfast foods are filling, easy to whip up, and somehow very fun to eat. So, why not eat a little bit of a.m. […]

Favorite recipes are meant to be shared

When I plan out my meals for the week, I typically first consult my trusty blue recipe box (it's nothing special - just a plastic little filing box with index cards in alphabetical order).

Going to a Meal-Prep Place {Anyone With Me?}

Cooking really doesn't take that long. It's the meal-planning and the meal-prepping that steals my minutes away. It's so tough to come up with 7 original dinner plans every single week...that are healthy and appealing to my whole family.  I am this close (really, really, really close) to heading out to a meal assembly kitchen in […]
