Asian Pork Loin

Sam’s Club Simply Delicious Meal Challenge {Recipe: Asian Style Pork Loin}

My fourth child… the cute yet drives me up the wall one…has made me hate grocery shopping. In fact, I pretty much can’t stand going out in public with her. She’s my fit thrower. My “I don’t want to be in a cart… I want to walk”, independent, opinionated, challenging, one. Love her dearly, but […]

Pepperidge Farm Holiday Worthy Meals Challenge

I am going to be cooking / hosting three Christmas dinner parties this month. THREE! It didn’t seem quite so insane until I actually just wrote that out. I love entertaining, especially during the holidays, but I also know how crazy busy this time of year is.  No matter what, I always allow myself to […]

Room to Breathe {Recipe: Red Beans and Rice}

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 […]

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.

Oven Baked Chicken Wings with Sweet BBQ Sauce

I used to not like chicken on the bone. In fact, was quite grossed out when it came to anything you had to pick up and gnaw off the bone. My world consisted of boneless, skinless chicken breasts and that was it. A door opened up for me when I eventually tried what are now […]

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 […]

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 […]

Old Habits {Recipe: Oven Baked Teriyaki Chicken Thighs}

Old habits die hard… like my past habit of only eating boneless skinless chicken breasts. I never even considered using any other kind of chicken…EVER. Then, as I explained in a previous post, I made an accidental purchase that changed my chicken loving ways for good. Through one fateful mishap in my shopping cart, I […]
