Spicy Chicken Pasta and a Beach Day

Who doesn’t love a good beach day? Especially when your mother-in-law tags along as an extra set of eyes to watch your baby. That way you and your husband can walk to the local beach bar and grab a drink. Or two;) The babe loved the sand on his toes and airing his little bum out. Don’t worry I won’t… Continue reading Spicy Chicken Pasta and a Beach Day

Coconut Carrot Cake and Computers

Last night, in the middle of doing 50 million things, my computer decided to die. Which is always super fun. Half the time I just wanna fling this thing out the window! (It’s only 3 weeks old, so why the heck isn’t it working? Seriously though, why?) Sometimes I think I should just delete technology from my… Continue reading Coconut Carrot Cake and Computers

Puff Pastry Salmon. Get In My Belly.

I was suffering from a severe case of mom boredom today. Being a new mom, you fluctuate between moments of utter chaos where you just want to hid under the covers, and moments of sitting on the couch, staring into space, waiting for your small child to pop up from a nap at a moments notice. Today, it was… Continue reading Puff Pastry Salmon. Get In My Belly.

I Have a (Slight) Obsession with Cooking Light

Every recipe I have blogged thus far has come from a Cooking Light magazine. So obviously I’m obsessed, right? It started when my wonderful mother in law gifted me with a subscription for Christmas. And she renews it every year. I know, she’s the best. Here’s why I love it… I get a new magazine, sent to my… Continue reading I Have a (Slight) Obsession with Cooking Light

The Best Leftovers are the Ones You Eat For Breakfast

My favorite way to eat leftovers is for breakfast the next morning. It doesn’t matter what is it – pizza, chinese food, or a boxed up salad from the night before. And I like to eat it cold. I know, it’s weird. This morning I decided to be more normal and make scrambled eggs. I opened up the fridge and saw the wilted… Continue reading The Best Leftovers are the Ones You Eat For Breakfast

Salmon and Wilted Spinach (My favorite kinda meal)

Before I met my husband I ate healthy. Like really healthy. I mean like I lived off salads, fruits, fish and lean proteins (think chicken breast, nonfat greek yogurt and egg whites). Then, I met this guy. I remember one of the first meals he made me; hot dogs and a side of baked beans. I even… Continue reading Salmon and Wilted Spinach (My favorite kinda meal)
