Rachael Ray… hey! come back, why did you all click away?? …Rachael Ray¬†gets a bad wrap. She is the one that first got me into cooking when she started her 30 Minute Meal show back in the day. I remember watching it when I was newly married and we were living in Massachusetts. She introduced […]

Guilt Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Monday, October 21st, 2013 in recipes

I have been on a sugar, dairy, and gluten free THING for 48 days. I don’t know what my body was reacting to before but there is a night and day difference with how I feel. More on that later (maybe) but I wanted to share a pumpkin cookie recipe that you don’t have to […]

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013 in cooking, Our Travels Worldwide, recipes

I told myself after I finished re-doing all of our business books for 2013 (my computer was stolen), figure out a new payroll system for Ty’s employees, filed and re-filed five million tax forms, and finished a family history project I have been working on for over a year….THAT THEN I COULD BLOG! I still […]

We have this sweet woman coming to the house to help 20 hours a week. Mainly it is for the girls and I to learn Spanish faster. But she also helps me keep up on cleaning the kitchen, an extra hand during crazy times during the day, etc. When I want to go somewhere fun […]

Monday, December 10th, 2012 in recipes

We got this system down-Tyler and I-splitting up the household to-do’s. He swears that he cooks and does the dishes more than I do, which is kind of true. So I ask him if he spends almost four hours a day feeding a baby. But there are a few main things we make every week […]

Thursday, May 31st, 2012 in recipes

First I am going to show you how to do homemade tortillas. Why even bother doing that you ask? They are cheap, they are easier than making cookies, they taste so much better, and they make the meal! Try it. Second I am going to tell you of 5 different meals (some vegetarian options) you […]

Cucumber Mint Lemonade Punch

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012 in recipes

Someone brought this punch to a get together I went to and was nice enough to leave the recipe card right by the punch bowl. She probably knew a lot of people were going to be asking her for it, I added the mint when I made it myself at home. Wow this is good: […]

Dessert OR Breakfast Smoothie

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012 in recipes

Another food post for you. I am still not feeling the best (or even good, or even normal, or even just doable) pregnancy wise BUT, I think I am starting the… “I AM STARVING, GIVE ME FOOD” stage. I tried to make a special drink out of coconut WATER a few weeks ago and did […]

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012 in cooking, recipes

Doesn’t this look good? We went out to a Thai place awhile ago as a family and my girls have been talking about that “yummy peanut dipping sauce” ever since. So I tried looking at quite a few recipes but didn’t find one that sounded that good to me. My sweet cousin was over and […]
