January is National Oatmeal Month — did you know that? Of course there is a month for everything, so let celebrate!
Did you have a favorite oatmeal as a kid? No, not the instant kind, although I do enjoy the blueberry flavor. Not sure it has real blueberries though.
While it is has cooled off considerably in South Florida I know that I need to take advantage of the weather and feel like I live up north.

I am in charge of Christmas food every year… I love it. Our Christmas plans are staying home all day, playing with toys and eating yummy food.
I’m not sure why I wait all year until Christmas Day to make foods like this.

Saturday mornings are made for baking. It is cloudy and overcast in South Florida at the moment as another Tropical Storm rolls through, so it makes the perfect morning for these to easy to be true Pumpkin Muffins. Continue reading “Two Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins – WW Friendly”
I know technically it is still September, and for a lot of people that is still too early for Halloween anything. Around my house Halloween starts at the end of August.
I am torn between Halloween and Christmas for my favorite holiday but I love the joy of celebrating ANY holiday. Not just the big ones. Continue reading “Halloween Snickerdoodles – A Family Tradition Continues”
I have no idea what made me think of this recipe. It is one of those things that I know I made in Home Ec ages ago and loved… but isn’t something I think I have ever made since.
Sidenote: is there still a such thing as Home Ec?
One of my favorite parts about this “salad”, I use that word loosely, is the crunch on top. Normally in the past I would have used Doritos… but since discovering Fit Crunch Protein Puffs, I have fallen in love with them and the protein they offer. They are the perfect compliment to this meal.

So after we built our fire pit in the back yard I was trying to come up with new and different ideas for foods to make over the fire. I have to give credit to this idea to my friend Laura who is currently camping across the country this summer. I saw this on her Instastories and knew I needed to make this on our recent stay on the farm. Continue reading “Campfire Eclairs – Perfect for Your Kids to Make”
I was shocked when I posted a poll on Instagram about Jello 123 and most people had no idea what I was talking about. How is this even possible? One of my favorite memories was spending a full day outside soaking in the summer sun, coming in for dinner and knowing that dessert was Jello 123.
Apparently they stopped making in in the mid 90’s… Booooo

I’m a mom. You know what that means? It means somewhere along the way I have stopped putting myself first. It happens. I feel like it happens to anyone who starts chasing after tiny feet. We are more consumed with the health and wellness than ours. That is the definition of MOM.
But this mom is running on empty a good deal these days. That’s why I said this summer was the summer of self care. It’s something I’ve been desperately needing.

Every year around the same time Publix (our grocery store in Florida) comes out with their Key Lime Pie commercials. I was never really a fan of Key Lime Pie simply because I never had it around as a kid. I think it just didn’t exist in my world until I moved to South Florida.

Meatless Monday isn’t really a thing around here. Every day is meatless for me. 🙂 But even with that sometimes I get into a rut with my meatless selections. I do love eggplant though. So when our awesome across the street neighbor brought over these eggplants I knew I wanted to use them in tacos. Continue reading “Eggplant Street Tacos – Meatless Monday”
