In an attempt to eat healthier, I gave up processed sugar and grains for Lent. If I’m going to be perfectly honest, I’ve already failed. Miserably. Especially Sunday. Either way, I’m trying regardless and it’s ok if I fail. Two of my new favorite things are Acai Bowls and Nourish Bowls. They’re both packed with … Continue reading

Don’t get me … Continue reading

Recently, I’ve absolutely LOVED making smoothies for breakfast, and it’s awesome because Baby J also loves mommy’s smoothies, which means he gets an extra serving of fruits and veggies in the morning! Originally, my love for smoothies started as a desire to start juicing, but considering we don’t have a juicer and another small appliance … Continue reading

It’s summer here in AZ, and it’s HOT. Like, you feel like you’re living on the face of the sun hot. Last week, temperatures hit close to 120, and people were cooking food on the hoods of their cars because they COULD. It was ridiculous. That being said, ice cream has become a staple in … Continue reading

Hello all! I haven’t been posting recipes lately because I haven’t been cooking. That makes me feel horrible! We’ve been eating out a ton and barely have had food in our house for the last month or so.

I hope everyone had a safe Memorial Day weekend. I know that I always enjoy each and every extra day I get with Mr. Wonderful so we spent our morning grabbing a yummy breakfast, going to the aquarium, and then napping… lots of napping. It’s also a great day to have off to celebrate the … Continue reading
