Baked Lemon Chicken

Baked Lemon Chicken

Baked Lemon Chicken. You brine it. You brush it. You bake it. Easy peasy. This recipe has turned out good for me pretty much every time I’ve made it. Though I must say, gas ovens are not as efficient as broiling food as electric ovens […]

Better Than Crazy Bread Breadsticks

Better Than Crazy Bread Breadsticks

In the not too distant past, I had an obsession with crazy bread from Little Caesars. Their pizza is alright, every once in awhile surprisingly good, but that Crazy Bread….so. dang. good. Something about the combination of soft, chewy, and perfectly buttery, made them highly […]

Chocolate Marshmallow Brownies

Chocolate Marshmallow Brownies

You know those Sunday mornings when you want to make a really amazing, knock your socks off, post Church, Sunday dinner treat? And maybe impress some people... We know about those mornings. Which means brownies. One of the best brownie recipes I have ever made. But first, a joke. The current joke around here is Grapes. Hey honey, what should we make for a treat tonight? How bout grapes? Since I've started cleaning up my blog so I could start posting again, I came across some pages I'd Read more [...]
Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

What do you want for breakfast? Pancakes. How about eggs? Or fruit? Or yogurt? Nope, just pancakes. Do your kids ask for pancakes every. single. morning.? Mine sure do. Except the oldest. He claims to hate pancakes. You can call me the Pancake Ninja. Pancakes […]

Saying “I Do” to the House

Buying a house is like getting married. The hype, excitement, anticipation of finally being able to search and then the hurry to jump in and meet as many homes as possible to try and find “the one.” Not too far off from the dating scene […]

Kyla’s Birth Story

Kyla’s Birth Story

This was the weirdest labor experience I've ever had. Wednesday night (10/12) my water broke sort of, and then somehow sealed back up within 24 hours. I didn't know that was possible but I guess it is! Wednesday night: contractions for about 2 hours, 30 minutes apart during the night. Thursday night: contractions for about 4 hours in the night at 30 minutes apart again Friday night: contractions almost all night at about 30 minutes apart. Saturday night: contractions started around 8 pm, Read more [...]
The Deception of Comparison

The Deception of Comparison

*I had an epiphany the other day…. I was looking at instagram posts of some spectacular women who were pregnant and working out, many of them Crossfit style. I felt pretty down on myself because they showed pictures of chiseled muscles and tiny bellies, and appeared […]

Our Huge Secret

Our Huge Secret

Late one night in early January, as I sat on the kitchen counter chatting with Scott about the possibility of expanding our family, these words accidentally popped out of my mouth: “It would have to be now and it would have to be a surprise […]

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Over the weekend Scott and I celebrated our 6th anniversary. Don't worry, I won't bore you with all the mushy, gushy details, instead you get to hear about The Time Someone Scared the Crap Out Of Me.   I ran to the store for a couple groceries before our date night. Like any other normal trip to for groceries, I unlocked the car, loaded the bags in, entered my door, put my keys in the ignition and....saw something out the corner of my eye. I nearly had a heart attack when I looked up an saw a Read more [...]

Eczema is a beast. In my previous post about Natural Eczema Relief, I wrote a little bit about our experience and the many, many things we’ve tried without success. Today I’m sharing some pictures and some snippets of my understanding of Eczema. Here’s a couple […]
