Create Your Own Mexican Restaurant Experience at Home

Create Your Own Mexican Restaurant Experience at Home

Thanks to HERDEZ for sponsoring today’s discussion.  One of my biggest problems is lunch time. Not for the kids, but for me. I get bored with sandwiches, mac and cheese, or leftovers from my kids’ lunch. Sometimes, I just want something different. Something to satisfy my taste palate.

Our Hawaiian Themed Inspired {School} Lunch #HydrationEducation

Our school year is almost here, which means it’s time to start planning school lunch ideas. Last year, I let my oldest eat hot lunch one day a week, but in reality it ended up being a lot more than that. Mainly because I’d forgot to plan ahead one week, or get too busy in […]

5 Reasons To Make Your Own Baby Food

5 Reasons To Make Your Own Baby Food

With my first child, I knew nothing about introducing solids, what to give her, or any of it. What can I say, I was totally clueless. Thankfully, over the years I’ve learned a lot. Mostly from researching different baby food brands, learning about baby led weaning, and of course personal experience with my children. Hands down, […]

Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

It took a little over 5 weeks of craziness, but this momma’s finally feeling “it”. I guess lack of sleep and staying too busy will do that to you. I’ve got some peppermint with honey tea to my left, a sleepy baby on my chest, and sadly I’m struggling to even write this post. I keep […]

To make things worse, my husband is a very picky eater. Putting more pressure on myself to make better […]
