Super easy, protein packed Mediterranean lunch bowls…yep that’s where it’s at. Whew!

Growing up I was never a huge cranberry sauce kinda gal. I didn’t like fresh or canned (you know, the stuff that comes out perfectly canned shaped with the lines in it!). I was more of a gravy girl. But boy have times changed. Now I look for an excuse to use make cranberry sauce.

Baked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Baked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal!? Did somebody say fall was in the air?? Okay not really. The only slightest bit of fall that we felt here in Florida so far was sadly when Hurricane Irma decided to show her ugly face. It’s sad that it takes a hurricane to give us nice weather for a few

Food blogging is hard while pregnant. It’s like everything and anything I’ve ever loved I now can’t even stand the thought of. Zucchini for instance (Kate knows all about this love of mine) used to be my go-to for our Sunday night grill-outs, and now I walk by it at the market like it doesn’t even

Whole Grain Banana Walnut Bread

Hi everyone! Back to work tomorrow after a fun 3 day weekend! It’s a funny thing to say, but one of my favorite things about days off work is that I don’t have to pack any breakfast, lunch or snacks. It’s so hard to decide what to pack the night before, and it’s so easy
