Epic Fail #5,773

Well dang. That’s all I can say about tonight’s dinner. While I love to think of myself as a slightly less inspired and less incarcerated version of Martha Stewart, the truth is I’m a more-casually-dressed version of Lucy Ricardo in regards to my homemaking. I’m always thankful for Mr. Scott Daniel, my 11th grade British… Continue reading Epic Fail #5,773

I’m a dog too! (And a bit about roasted veggies)

I like to think of myself as the everymom. You know, the one who occasionally loses her cool and yells at the kids, who says “okay one more popsicle, but I’m drawing the line at 5!” and who makes a fool of herself on a regular basis in spite of really attempting to be cool.… Continue reading I’m a dog too!

Date night in: Bistro Spaghetti Squash

Oh friends. The struggle gets real every Friday/Saturday night, when we want to get out and enjoy the gorgeous weather, or the fun downtown area by our house, have a few beers, enjoy some good food, and have conversation that doesn’t involve someone’s preference for Peppa Pig over Dora, or whether or not a certain… Continue reading Date night in: Bistro Spaghetti Squash

Easy packed lunches

Oh the adventures of a #boymom. So…yesterday I spent most of my day in the ER (don’t get sympathetic on me yet…this was basically the ER from Stepford, complete with fresh coffee, leather sofas, and recessed lighting for your personal comfort) with the little man, Miss Co, and the wee baby, all thanks to my… Continue reading Easy packed lunches

Asian burritos!

In case you haven’t noticed, we love anything wrapped in tortillas around here. And…we also love Asian food. So tonight’s dinner is loaded with clean protein and super-foods that are still delicious and kid-friendly. The only downside is the edamame. I HATE shelling edamame. It is seriously the worst. But I digress. I was inspired… Continue reading Asian burritos!

The Queen of Clean

Oh man. Today I am feeling a little pleased with myself. I have officially made a clean-eating birthday cake that is basically the greatest. Now, don’t go getting too excited. I’m not about to put Publix out of business. There’s no lard-infused frosting on this baby, and I’m pretty sure it’s not going anywhere near… Continue reading The Queen of Clean

Saturday blitz!

Well friends, I was SUPER excited to be introducing video to the blog today, showing you how I make my homemade baby food. I am just gaga for my Infantino Squeeze Station, and it makes it so incredibly easy to do baby food that I will probably never buy those expensive little pouches again. I… Continue reading Saturday blitz!
