Italian Chicken Quesadillas - delicious 20 minute meal! Chicken, red bell pepper, prosciutto, and provolone cheese on tortillas and cooked until cheese is melty and delicious!

Anyone else struggling with summer dinners?

I’m in no mood to cook.

It’s summer! Who wants to be in the kitchen.

But at the same time, I also want to eat healthy and make sure my kids are eating healthy. So I’m forever on the hunt for easy and delicious ideas that will keep me from reaching for the frozen mozzarella sticks. Click for the full recipe

Sangria Popsicles - easy and delicious! Only a few ingredients! Perfect for your next party!


It’s hot in Texas.

Did you know it’s hot in Texas?

You did?

Oh, okay.

I guess this is news to no one.

Anyway, I’m really into showing up at at my friends’ houses with homemade boozy popsicles these days since it’s so hot and also because they’re so much more fun than showing up with cocktail supplies. And lucky for me, I’m usually just walking over to my neighbors’ house so popsicles are easily transported.

For these really easy Sangria Popsicles, I used Woodbridge by Robert Modavi Chardonnay. Woodbridge has been around for over 30 years and is one of my go-tos because I know I can trust their wines to be delicious and make any occasion more fun.

And what’s more fun than popsicles made from wine?!

Like I said, these are SO EASY. Cut up a bunch of fruit – I used strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and kiwi, but use whatever you like. And then mix together the Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Chardonnay and a little bit of lemonade. And then combine it all in popsicle molds. Freeze for 8 hours and then get ready for your friends to really love you when you show up at the block party with a tray of frozen wine.

They are so pretty – I just can’t get over all the bright colors! And seriously delicious!

(Disclaimer: I wrote this on January 30, 2016 – a week after this incident occurred. Hasn’t been edited.)

I didn’t realize it was so bad until I’d told the story 10 times to 10 different agencies.


He yanked me off the counter by my neck.


Eyes wide.


I was in the backyard, naked, screaming for help.


Mouth drops.


My 4 year old was standing in the doorway as he dragged me back inside, threw me on the floor, and strangled me again.


Can no longer make eye contact.

I did everything I was supposed to do. I called his superiors every time. I had them come get him. I had them talk to him. I let them handle it.

Strawberry Jalapeno Salmon - only 5 ingredients and ready in under 30 minutes! This delicious, healthy meal is going to become a regular in your house!

Happy Monday, guys!

I have officially entered that weird space where I really need my kids to go back to school because they are driving me crazy but I also want it to be summer forever so I don’t have to go back to real life.

I’ve been trying to get back into cooking more though. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve had cereal for dinner this summer. It’s just so easy to lose track of time and all the sudden it’s 6 pm and everyone is starving and maybe I haven’t been to the grocery store in a couple weeks.


So I’m currently obsessed with simple meals that only require a few ingredients and only take a few minutes to prep.
