Jalapeño Tzatziki Dip & Jalapeño Tzatziki Pretzel Bites

Jalapeño Tzatziki Dip main

Life has been a little crazy lately.  Last weekend I went on a girls trip and  my husband was simultaneously interviewing with a company in San Diego.  He got an offer and we accepted.  So we turned around as soon as we got home from our trips and went back to San Diego to house hunt.  So....I guess we are moving to San Diego!! We will be moving early June, which means I … [Read more...]

Cuban Style Hot Dogs

Cuban Style Hot Dogs main

It's funny how such a simple thing like a hot dog can make me so  happy.  I've always been a sucker for hot dogs, especially at ball parks and sporting events, and summer barbecues.  But this Cuban Style Hot Dog really got me giddy.  Funny how food can do that to you...or maybe just me?  If you want to know how to really make a hot dog good, make it Cuban Style.  I … [Read more...]

I'm just coming off of a girls weekend in Moab, Utah and it was just what this mama needed- hiking, laying at the pool, great food, jeeping, chick flicks, pedicures, and lots and lots of girl talk.  Kind of the perfect combination of girly/outdoorsy activities.  I'd do it all again in a heart beat.    The whole purpose of the trip was to celebrate the three of us turning … [Read more...]

Cheesy Chicken & Quinoa Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Chicken and Quinoa Stuffed Poblano Peppers main one.jpg

So the word is out that baby #3 is ANOTHER BOY!  I'm not going to pretend I wasn't hoping for a girl.  Every mother wants a girl, right?  But I really am okay with another boy!  My boys are strong willed, loud, are masters of destruction, wild and crazy, and wear me out every single day.  Yet they are so much fun and the sweetest little boys at the same time!  Why not … [Read more...]

Blueberry Lemon Protein Pancakes

I tend to crave things like cheeseburgers and french fries, pizza, and Mexcian food when I'm pregnant.  I always like those foods, but when I'm pregnant the cravings are  so much stronger.   I once cried when Brett screwed up my order for a cheeseburger.  That was with my first pregnancy, but it goes to show I'm serious about my cravings.  When I'm not pregnant, dessert is … [Read more...]

My little Miles is getting tubes in his ears this morning.  For the last six months he has had ear infection after infection.  We've been to the doctor's over and over, he's been on antibiotic after antibiotic and nothing has worked.  The dang ear infection kept coming back.  He went from being my happiest little guy to Mr. Grumpy, and he hasn't slept good at night in months … [Read more...]

If you have some leftover ham from Easter, this is a great way to use it! We make scrambled eggs and omelets all of the time, and ham is almost always an add-in. These Southwest Ham & Egg Breakfast Burritos are so easy....and super cheesy!  I can't eat my eggs without a good helping of cheese on them. Scramble up some eggs (I used some egg whites and some whole eggs) add some … [Read more...]

Orange Honey Greek Yogurt Pops main 2

Like with every pregnancy, I'm craving lots of citrus.  And I just can't seem to eat enough oranges!  I'm also hot all of the time.  I know, I'm only 17 weeks and it's not even summer yet.  Brett came home to the air conditioner blasting the other day and told me I was crazy.  I warned him it could be an expensive summer;) I've never been in my last trimester during the … [Read more...]
