I can still remember the first time I ate a fish taco. It sounded terrible. I was resistant to try it. I was 14 years old, and I had traveled to San Diego, CA to visit my aunt. She picked me up from the airport and insisted we stop at Rubio's. All I can say is that it was love at first bite. Years later I moved to San Diego to attend college, and stayed in southern California for nearly 15 years. Rubio's was a staple. My husband would pick it up every Saturday - and fish tacos were . . .

I am ALWAYS rushed in the morning, so my go-to breakfast is always a shake. I've come up with some fun, tasty recipes over the years - and so I thought I'd share one of my staples today. With all of the processed foods these days I like to start off the day with something that is good for me, so I . . .
This post is sponsored by Baskin-Robbins. I have a 5 month old little boy. He is so smiley and rolly polly and precious. It's all I can do to not nibble him all day long. When I was pregnant with him I MAJORLY craved Baskin-Robbins. I sent my husband on late night runs ALL.THE.TIME. So when Baskin-Robbins asked us if we wanted to try their new Warm Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich there was no way I was going to say no. My little family made an evening of it - everyone got to choose . . .
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 . . .

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 . . .
