This is what I call a Lazy Mamas Crockpot Dinner! I came up with this dish one morning with no recipe, I wasn’t inspired by anything in particular; I opened my refrigerator and had carrots, pre-sliced mushrooms and chuck roast. That was dinner. You can see how lazy I was because I didn’t even cut the carrots, but with…Continue

What do you do with too many apples and too little fridge space?
I usually turn them into apple crumble, the butterless and nutty version. Those who know me will know my aversion to butter. I can…

I put together this crockpot on a cold, snowy day. I knew by lunch-time that the last thing I wanted to do was stand in the kitchen cooking dinner come 5pm so this was perfect! I put all of the ingredients in the crockpot, stirred and turned it on high for 4 hours.
Though I couldn’t taste anything (thank…Continue

I put this crock-pot together on Sunday when the boys were recovering from the flu. Yes, I already know what you’re thinking… Mexican food? With the flu? Crazy, right? Well, they pretty much spent Friday and Saturday on the couch, eating nothing but toast with jelly,…Continue

Ahhhhh Sunday. I needed Sunday. We went to church in the morning and then I took a little Sunday drive by myself while the boys (all 3 of them) napped. I listened to music, sipped a soy latte and cleared my head. It was refreshing after all of my stressful ob-gyn stuff. I’m still stressed about…Continue

I love that our little family now has a few traditions throughout the year and this is one of them! Monkey Bread. I only make it one time a year; on Christmas morning and this year I am especially excited for it (probably bc I’m pregnant and have been craaaaving it since December 1st!)
Monkey Bread is prepared on Christmas Eve and left sitting out on the counter until morning. Then, all you have to do when you wake is pop it in the oven, set a timer, and voila! 20 minutes…Continue

Coffee? Tea? Let’s chat! I’m here and still alive but this is the time of year I usually feel like I fall off the face of the earth. I feel like I’ve been so focused and wrapped up in my own little family of 4 (soon to be 5) and realize that I’ve not given much attention to those around me! Is that normal? Is it just what happens at certain stages of motherhood? I’m definitely in that stage. Sometimes I get overwhelmed when I try to keep up. Sometimes scrolling through…Continue

I pulled this out of Rocco’s book-bag this week. When I asked where Mary was, his response was, “Mary went out shopping.” And Roman said, “Yeah! Mawy’s buying Chwistmas presents!”
I mean, at least they knew where she was, right?
I happened to do more Christmas shopping of my own this…Continue

Here’s a perfect light and airy dessert for summer. Over forty years ago I fell in love with a recipe called Praline Soufflé Fifi, a creation of the late and great Michael Field. You beat egg whites with sugar to make a meringue and fold in a homemade powdered pecan praline. After baking the soufflé in a hot…

Last week, we took our official annual family camping trip. Each summer, we take one trip to a California State Park that I deem “official”because it is with kids and without cell phones, laptops, or iPods. The only media we allow are cameras and Kindles (for capturing memories, and because we can keep all our books in one place). What I discovered on this trip was that three days of no Facebook updates, no check-ins, no Tweets and no notifications can actually be…Continue

Our life together has not been a piece of cake, no storybook romance/fairy tale. We've had a lot of rocky roads. Throughout our six, almost seven years of marriage, we have had many prayer warriors. It is by God's grace, and through our faithful prayer warriors that we are together today.
There was a time where we lived "separate" lives, strangers living under the same roof. No relationship building, no time together. He lived his life, the children and I lived ours.

I'm not a breakfast person. I generally hate eggs, and usually anything I eat early in the morning disagrees with my tummy. I have found, though, that smoothies work well for me in the morning. Really anytime. Plus they are quick and convenient and give me the energy I need to get from one task to the next. I wanted to share with you my Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie recipe made with almond milk, instead of dairy milk, which is much easier on me. At 294 calories (calculated with…Continue
