I have typically fixed up a protein smoothie for breakfast. They are quick, easy and packed with good stuff. This peach cobbler smoothie has become one of our most popular smoothie recipes. I love it every morning! It is my go-to and I'm full until lunch. Pour it in a cup, drop the kids to school, and off to errands.The Peaches I always love to use peaches that are extra sweet so that my flavor is incredible. If you can during peach season buy extra wash and slice, then freeze in a single . . .
Who else struggles with breakfast!? I am ALWAYS rushed in the morning, so my go-to breakfast is always a shake.

During our first "oh so meeting" in the beginning days of the blog - a friend who used to blog with us, Anna, brought over her beef bourguignon to photograph and later share on the blog. I remember loving that recipe when we all took a bite. When Holland House® asked if we wanted to try some of their cooking wines, I knew this recipe would be the perfect fit. I've made a few tweaks to Anna's original recipe, but this hearty beef stew is a classic.Family Tradition She told a story of when . . .
Today I want to chat about WATER! The source of life. I am actually a water lover. I enjoy a nice big glass of ice water almost as much as a nice big glass of Diet Coke. But let's face it - sometimes it gets boring. Flavored sparkling water is a big trend right now, but I'm here to tell you that making your own still, infused water is just as good, if not better than those expensive canned waters.Reduce Single-Use Plastic Bottle Waste Today we've teamed up with Dopper to bring water . . .
Now that most everyone has started school - it's time to talk school lunch! I grew up eating hot school lunch and I loved it! But school lunch just isn't what it used to be.

Have I ever told you that I hate tomatoes and onions? I'm sure I have. Because of this aversion I have always steered clear of the classic seven layer dip, but as I've gotten older I've become a little braver and now eat some dishes with tomato and onion. When I tasted seven layer dip I was floored and I loved it! How could I love tomatoes? I don't know, but I know that seven layer dip is about as delicious as it comes.Crunchmaster This past March, Des and I were able to attend Expo . . .
I get a lot of questions about what kind of camera or lens I use to take my food pictures, so I thought I'd spill the beans about what is in my camera bag. My wish list is longer than my arm, but these are my go-to's.1. Camera Body When it comes to a camera body all of us here at Oh So use a Cannon 70D or 80D. The camera has some really nice features including wifi, a touch screen, and really great video quality.Canon EOS 80D Digital SLR Camera 2. Lenses As far as lenses, I . . .

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 . . .

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 . . .
