Paleo Turkey Meatballs, Creamy Mashed Cauliflower and Traveling

We just got back from California where we were visiting my family. It was wonderful, but traveling with kids is exhausting. I don’t care what you say. The airplanes, the time changes, the exploring and visiting, the new surroundings, it gets to them man. Or at least my kids. Maybe my kids are weird. The… Continue reading Paleo Turkey Meatballs, Creamy Mashed Cauliflower and Traveling

Crock Pot Beef and Sweet Potato Chili

I’ve been making Slow Cooker meals all week and I’m in love. My favorite part of the whole production (which isn’t even a “production”) is when Cooper wakes up first thing in the morning, I pick him up out of his crib and ask him if he wants to help me cook. He replies with… Continue reading Crock Pot Beef and Sweet Potato Chili

Sweet Potato Toast – Whole30

This is officially day 6 of doing Whole30. I should clarify this though, Mark is doing Whole30, not me. I’m pregnant and like pretzels too much. But, I am cooking all his meals, so I do participate, then. Because I’m pregnant and I don’t want to spend extra time cooking other things. Lots of things… Continue reading Sweet Potato Toast – Whole30

Spinach and Sausage Spaghetti

Guys. I am getting so good at this “making up recipes” thing. I’m shocked with myself. It’s taken me 26 years but I just realized…I am (sort of) creative! Homeschool paid off. Shout out to mom. Mark had a buddy coming over for dinner tonight so I wanted to make something heartier than just the… Continue reading Spinach and Sausage Spaghetti
