Adult Brown Bag Lunch Ideas


I’ve spent so much time the past few weeks worrying about school and at-home lunch ideas. As I’m sure I’ve mentioned, part of my biggest problem is burn-out. Like anyone, the kids get tired of eating the same lunch over and over again. My husband and I get tired of eating the same thing too. … Read more

Peach & Blueberry Cobbler


Fall is my favorite season of the year. I love the chillier air that necessitates sweater weather! I love the sights, smells and tastes associated with fall. Needless to say, I was to feel a bit of that fall air moving in last week. But I will definitely miss summer this year. The coming of … Read more

Mexican Lasagna


I think the thing I love the most about Mexican Lasagna is its versatility. There are probably almost as many recipes for Mexican Lasagna as there are food blogs!

Swagbucks for K Cups

It took me over a year of hearing my friends rave about Swagbucks before I finally jumped on the bandwagon. I’ve got say that I was stupid to wait so long. Just think of all those Amazon gift cards I’ve been missing out on while searching the web for 12 months. Since joining, I haven’t … Read more

Cream Cheese & Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Rolls


As I spent the day in the kitchen baking this past Saturday, I decided that I really wanted to make a batch of cinnamon rolls to add to the freezer. The thought of being able to warm up a cinnamon roll to have with a cup of coffee after an early morning nursing session sounded … Read more

10 Minute No-Bake Peach Crisp


Earlier this week, I decided we HAD to have breakfast for dinner and that we were having a big puffed pancake and bacon. I don’t think my mind could have been swayed from that idea for anything. The only thing I wasn’t set on was a topping for the puffed pancake. For some reason, I … Read more
