You may have noticed I was a bit grumpy last week. I would share the reason why with you, but it is long and drawn out and involves a 5 year old screaming hysterically all the way to school and to her classroom about a water bottle. That’s how I started my birthday and it […]

Beef Tostada Recipe

Hass Avocado Recipe Contest {Recipe: Beef Tostadas}

This post brought to you by Hass Avocado Board featuring Hass Avocados. All opinions are 100% mine. We’re kind of a fan of the avocado around our house. Avocado’s are one of those things that just seem to “ooomph” up an ordinary recipe, don’t you agree? A chicken sandwich sounds much more appealing when you […]

Lemon Pepper Shrimp Pasta Recipe

The Gift of Time {Recipe: Lemon Pepper Shrimp Over Pasta}

I’ve been thinking a lot about time lately… lack of it, its speed and the meaning behind it. We have 4 weeks of summer remaining. I should be looking forward to those four weeks, anticipating the fun that we can have together, but instead I’ve been looking back, full of regret for the things we […]

Rigatoni Chicken Pasta

A Pasta Discovery {Recipe: Rustic Baked Rigatoni}

I know… I know… stop talking about the darn homemade pasta, right? I’m sorry! I just can’t help it. When I made homemade pasta for the first time last week, it was kind of a moment for me. I looked back at my Hamburger Helper days many moons ago and marveled at how far I […]

Fun Pasta

Making Homemade Fresh Pasta Noodles

Several months ago, my husband gave me the gift of a KitchenAid pasta maker attachment. To be honest with you, I was excited, but a little intimidated. I’m not sure why, but making your own pasta just seemed like it would be quite the process. I’ve made my moms homemade egg noodles for her delicious […]

Spicy Sweet Potato Soup with Tabasco Original Red

This post brought to you by TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine. Some of you really like things hot. I know my dad isn’t happy with the heat of something unless he has tears streaming down his face. His “hot” tolerance is off the charts. For most of us though, we may like […]

Mexican Spice Recipe

Eat. Live. Be. Week 3 (Recipe: Recipe Girl Fish Tacos)

I’m going to just get right to business here. The scale was not so nice to me this past Monday for weigh in, and after some of my behavior from this past week, I wouldn’t expect it to be. I knew when I first posted my weight on my blog, it would be hard putting […]
