New Routines {Recipe: Stuffed Breakfast Sandwiches}

DIY Stuffed Breakfast Sandwiches from www.dineanddish.net

DIY Stuffed Breakfast Sandwiches give your family the opportunity to take breakfast in their own hands. Thank you to my friends at Wholly Guacamole for sponsoring this post and giveaway.  We have some new morning routines at the Dine & Dish house. No longer are my kids all going to the same school and leaving the house at the same time. My husband is up and gone by 6am. Jacob, being in middle school now, starts school an hour before the older girls. Leah doesn't go to preschool until the afternoon. As you can see, getting a consistent morning routine down where everyone gets to eat breakfast at the same time is next to impossible. As my kids have grown and become more independent, we've made efforts to have breakfast be a more hands on affair. Finding breakfast foods that suit everyones needs, timing and tastes isn't always easy... that's why we've turned to doing DIY breakfast buffet bars in the morning.  … [Continue reading]

Grilling Season is Now! {Recipe: Marinated Grilled Sweet Onions}

Marinated Grilled Sweet Onions from www.dineanddish.net

Marinated Grilled Sweet Onions are one of the easiest grilled side dishes you'll find. Thanks to my friends at McCormick spices and seasonings for sponsoring this post.  I always get a chuckle when people say that Labor Day is the official end of grilling season. Anyone who believes that doesn't know my husband. I've known him to be out manning our ghetto grill in 3 feet of snow. A little cooler weather isn't going to stop us from enjoying some of our favorite grilled foods!  … [Continue reading]

Connect Through Reading: Oh My Heart

Fault In Our Stars by John Green reviewed at www.dineanddish.net

Oh friends... do I have some good books to tell you about today! I think two of these books will probably make my top ten best books for 2013... they were *that* good! I am so excited to share them with you.   First up is The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.  I'll admit, I'm a big "judge a book by the cover" girl, and I honestly avoided reading this book (and the one following) because of their covers. They just didn't pull me in or grab me. I am so very thankful I was convinced by some friends to pick this book up because once I did, I couldn't put it down. The Fault in Our Stars is a story about two teenagers who meet in cancer support group, develop a friendship and fall in love. It's about finding hope and meaning on their journey and sharing a common ground with someone who "gets it". I can't tell you much about the story without giving it away, but you will laugh, and you will cry and you will be so heartbroken when this book is over because it will be a permanent part of your heart, forever. I read this book weeks ago and am tearing up writing this because this book touched me so. Oh, and full disclosure... it's young adult fiction, but please don't let that stop you from reading it! … [Continue reading]

Recipe: California Avocado Breakfast Casserole

California Avocado Breakfast Casserole from www.dineanddish.net

Wake up! Are you one of those people who wakes up quickly and gets out of bed to get ready for the day right away? Maybe you hit the snooze button a few times, catching a few extra winks? Or maybe you are like me and open your eyes as soon as your alarm goes off, but then continues to spend and extra 10 minutes in bed browsing Instagram before starting your day? Either way, I find if I have a great breakfast to look forward to in the morning, I tend to have a little more hustle and bustle in my step than normal. Any breakfast, like this California Avocado Breakfast Casserole, will definitely get me moving fast so I can enjoy it! … [Continue reading]
