Carnitas, Corn, and Black Bean Soup

This post is sponsored by Albertsons & Safeway. I’m getting better at having go-to foods I can prepare – easy meals that I can whip up in a short amount of time that everyone (or at least, most everyone) in the family likes. I started making Carnitas, Corn, and Black Bean Soup last year after having something…

Simple Chia Seed Pudding

A lot of you asked me for the recipe for my chia seed pudding. It’s so incredibly easy to make, and since my kids love it I usually make a batch every few days. Chia seeds are an unprocessed, whole-grain food that can be absorbed by the body as seeds, and they contain healthy omega-3 fatty…

Pomegranate Mint Fizz

We spend every New Year’s Eve at my friend Tara’s house. The kids all run around in the rec room, and the adults have fun upstairs watching the broadcast from Times Square while we eat a dozen different appetizers. Besides bringing food, I also volunteered to bring a drink. I wanted to find something that could…

Strawberry Chicken Salad

A few years ago my friend Amy completely revamped her health by adding in exercise and changing the way she ate. Two years later, she’s lost a ton of weight (ten sizes!) and is now a marathon runner. When I started trying to get my health back after James was born, she was not only my…

Coconut Lime Sublime + Giveaway

When we were in Hawaii last fall, my parents watched the kids one night so Mike and I could have a date night. We went to eat at a restaurant called Fleetwood’s (as in Mick) where we had a delicious meal while we watched the sun set over Molokai. My drink from that night stands…

Homemade Lemon Curd

I stopped posting recipes at this time last year because I’d finished Mike’s “cook once a week” challenge…and because that’s when I found out I was pregnant with James, and the hyperemesis had already started! Since that is gone, I’ve been back in the kitchen and I’ve really been enjoying myself. The nine months of…

Three Ingredient Crockpot Turkey

This post is sponsored by Safeway stores-Safeway, Dominicks, Tom Thumb, Vons, Randalls. Tastier for the holidays! Mike, Annie, and I always spend Thanksgiving with Mike’s family in Northern California. We love going up and spending time in the Bay Area, but the one bummer about not spending Thanksgiving at home is no leftovers. The leftovers…

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread Muffins

I love the fall. Great sports, changing leaves, cool weather (in theory – not here), and delicious food. Mike and I have gone a little crazy over all the limited time pumpkin and spiced apple items at our local stores. But that’s okay, because it’s sweater weather (in theory – not here) and sweaters are…
