The 4th of July is right around the corner - so I wanted to share with you what I have planned for my celebration! Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays. I love being surrounded by friends and family while celebrating our country. I love a pretty presentation (who doesn't?!) and red, white, and blue are some of my favorite colors to dress up a table with! I started out with a festive tablecloth that I found while browsing the aisles at Home Goods. All of the tableware you see . . .

Even if you are the main cook in your house - you can easily hand this recipe off to someone else while you sit back and relax this Mother's Day! Mother's Day is one day that is pretty darn special to me. Growing up I always dreamed of being a mother.

Let me jab about this dessert for a bit - and then I'll get back to the giveaway. Creme Brûlée is my FAVORITE favorite favorite dessert. But I understand that there are some out there that really prefer a chocolate dessert. I have the perfect solution - chocolate creme brûlée. My husband . . .
My 4-year-old started preschool this year, so I'm a total newbie at this lunch-making business! Over the past year I had seen others using these PlanetBoxes and I knew I had to have one once the time came for me to become a legit mom. Soccer practice started the same week, so I reached all sorts of crazy levels of mommy hood that I'd never done before! I love the safety of stainless steel, the absence of plastic baggies (cost and environmental reasons), how easy it is to clean, how organized it . . .
Today I want to share with you my experience with a new meal delivery service called Sunbasket. These services are popping up - and I really like the concept. Fresh ingredients and recipes delivered right to your door. No meal planning, no shopping, and you get a home cooked meal at a reasonable price. One thing that has turned me off about some of these services were to strange meals I would never be interested in eating - but I found Sunbasket's meals to be so appetizing! So when they . . .
Last week I shared with you my desire to lose baby fat and how I was using the UP MOVE by Jawbone in this post. One of the meals I've been fixing is this delicious Kalua Pig recipe. Today I wanted to share a few lessons I've learned and how the UP MOVE have given me the insight. Also a bomb turkey sandwich because we are a food blog after all. First the turkey sandwich. I've mentioned before in the past I worked at a sandwich shop in college. It was the best job ever. Taught me some food . . .
The Rotisserie Chicken is one of my secret weapons! I use them as a shortcut to creating delicious meals without cooking a chicken. I love to eat one of these for dinner with a side salad, but I love them even more as an ingredient in a delicious recipe. The meat is perfect for soups, casseroles, enchiladas, salads and more! My Costco sells them for $4.99 - and they are so good! They are moist, they are flavorful, and cooked PERFECTLY. When I make a Costco run I buy 2 or 3 along with . . .
We are all pretty dang excited about today's post and the recipes that will be coming this week. This week is all about Blendtec. It's no secret that around here we loooooove our Blendtecs! A few years back my husband told that I could either buy a Blendtec or a designer purse for my birthday...and I chose the Blendtec! I have never looked back. I use mine at least once every day, and usually multiple times a day. Many people think that blenders are only for making green smoothies, but . . .
Years ago at a camping trip family reunion my aunt taught us how to make these omelets in a bag. Sounds weird. But trust me - they are amazing. We were all so so skeptical and stood around the big pot of boiling water while our omelets cooked. To our surprise we each slid a restaurant perfect omelet onto our paper plates. All you need are a few eggs, a few tablespoons of milk or water, add ins of your choice, a gallon sized freezer bag, and a pot of boiling water. Place your . . .
