What’s for dinner? There are apps for that!

What’s for dinner? Does anyone else get as stressed about this question as I do? I know it’s silly. Of all the things in the world, I really shouldn’t stress about what to have for dinner. But without fail, I usually do. I want the dinner to be something that tastes good (of course), is healthy, and doesn’t take a lot of time to cook (because there is usually a toddler hanging on to my leg). So I struggle to…

Recipe: Cowboy Stirfry

My stepmom introduced me to a new favorite recipe so I have to give her credit here. It is super simple and quick to prepare. Plus, my husband absolutely loves it. He calls it the Cowboy Stir-fry. This recipe has 3 ingredients (seriously!) and is delicious. It does take an hour to cook but it’s so easy to make so we don’t mind just popping it in the oven to cook. It’s also pretty healthy and I imagine you could…

Recipe Round Up: What I’m Loving Lately

Since I try to eat healthy most of the time, I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make. I generally like to make things that taste great, are quick and easy to make, and don’t cost a fortune. I get these recipes from all over – searching the internet, Pinterest, and getting suggestions from my stepmom. In fact, most of them are recommended from her because she’s a great cook and likes to eat healthy too. Lucky…

Quick/Healthy Breakfast Idea

Since I’ve become a full time working mom now, I have realized I need to be a lot more efficient and I need simple, quick recipes to make sure I actually get to eat. Breakfast is such an important meal and to me, it makes a difference in my whole day. I just have to eat breakfast or I have zero energy… and I’m not such a nice person either! So I realized I need something quick that I can…

Love Low-Cal Cocktails?!

It’s no secret that alcoholic drinks can add up to a lot of calories.  One margarita alone can have 500 calories.  Just one!  I do love margaritas though.  Paired with a good bowl of chips and some salsa… it’s a perfect combo.  However, this isn’t so great for the waist line or your health. While having one of those drinks once in awhile won’t hurt, it’s just not realistic to assume you can drink those and stay on track with…

Making Dinner Simple: Theme Nights!

  (A Meatless Monday dish I made!) Trying to decide what to eat for dinner is the biggest decision in our house.  It takes us forever to decide what to eat!  I’m not sure why but my husband would probably say it’s my fault for being so indecisive.  And he’s probably right! I’m the type of eater where I can eat the same things over and over.  I know – boring!  But I just can.  I know what I like…
