We DO like Green Eggs and Ham...Waffle Sandwich, that is! Aren't you tired of oatmeal or toast? Let's try something new for breakfast, shall we? Brunch? Brinner? Trust me, it all works. Crispy Waffles I have been on the hunt for the perfect, crispy waffle for YEARS. Years, my friends. We have a delicious, healthy, hearty recipe for Oatmeal Waffles on here, but I wanted something simple and light and crisp--you know, the guilty kind with absolutley no health benefits. I've tried folding in . . .
I attended a "favorite things" party recently where my good friend Megan Papworth served this white chocolate raspberry bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes. It's delicious! One of her friends turned to me and said, if you made a copycat recipe of this cake for your site I would forever love you. What do I say? Challenge accepted! I am not a "cake from scratch" type of girl. I'm more of a "semi-homemade" type of girl when it comes to baking. So the beautiful thing about this white chocolate . . .
Our last book club we met at a popular restaurant here in southern California called WoodRanch Grill. I've been a handful of times and have loved everything I've ordered from the menu. One of my friends suggested I get the peanut slaw that night. Peanut slaw? It sounded just like what I was craving...even though it was a late evening and usually a time when one would order dessert, I wanted something savory. This Peanut Slaw was IT. It really hit the spot. I loved that it wasn't heavy and . . .
You guys - we survived Expo West again this year. Each year we look forward to meeting with new companies and ones we have loved for years. Our feet are left sore but our cups are filled. Today Des and I (Kadee) want to share some of our favorite finds from the Expo. Janice Design Before we jump in, I have to share the cutest backpacks that we wore inside of the Anaheim convention center. With samples and business cards galore we needed good shoes and backpacks. I'm kind of loving that . . .
You know what Asian restaurants are really good at making? Two things--Asian food and doughnuts. Here in Texas (and back in California) we have real doughnut shops on every corner. So I've grown to be picky, and these absolutely do not compare to grocery store doughnuts! And the Asian food...MAN do they make some good fried rice, egg drop soup, crab rangoons, and pork spring rolls! There's a lot of food that I love to fry, and I feel like I fry more food than most. People complain of it . . .
Have you guy jumped in on the unicorn craze? I've seen unicorn hot chocolate, unicorn ice cream, unicorn toast - and a variety of other pastel rainbow foods lately. I'm a mom of three little boys, so the unicorn trend hasn't hit our household. BUT, I have a bad sweet tooth, so pretty delicious desserts are always up my alley. S'mores I have really fond memories of eating s'mores by the campfire as a kid. My family loved to camp and my sisters and I would try to perfectly toast our . . .
Theres a new little cafe in my hometown that has popped up called Burnt Lemonade. I actually haven't eaten there yet. I can't even tell you if their lemonade is actually burnt...but the idea of burnt lemonade has stuck in my mind since hearing of this new cafe. Since it's citrus season here in California and all the trees are bursting, my kids and I decided to give it a try. Fresh Lemonade vs Burnt Lemonade I was really REALLY skeptical that they would taste any different at all. We made a . . .
Man, feeding yourself can be a beast! Honestly it can consume most our day if we let it, especially if you're feeding other humans along with yourself. As a mother of 4 kids I feel my life is spent in the kitchen. I'm either cooking or cleaning..... or standing wondering what the heck to make! The key to making this whole eating experience a pleasant one is meal prep and planning. We hope that this week of buddha bowls has helped you in your efforts! Today's bowl is a Thai Buddha Bowl. Why . . .
Guys - we are going strong on this buddha-bowl week! What has been your favorite so far? The Mexi-Quinoa Bowl? The Chimichurri Chicken Bowl? Or how about the Spicy Chicken Burrito Bowl? I really can't even decide. They are all so mouthwatering. We hope we've inspired you to treat yourself well and feed yourself a delicious and healthy lunch. Buddha-Bowl week isn't over yet! Today I wanted to share this easy peasy idea. Buddha-Bowls for an Easy Lunch I've really loved eating . . .
Last summer I sat on a warm, sunny SoCal beach next to my dear friend who was eating a lunch similar to this Mexi-quinoa buddha bowl. Gosh it looked so good, and I was SO hungry. I love going to the beach all day, soaking in the sun and sea air, but really struggle with a meal to bring for myself! PBJ's are great for the kids-- not me. I struggle in general with coming up with good lunches for myself. So making lunch ahead of time, like this Mexi-quinoa buddha bowl or Kadee's Burritos buddha . . .
