Some of my favorite things about summer are grilling and ice cream. And I have found some new products that I am absolutely obsessed with and have become summer staples for me.

My guilty pleasure is drive thru food. And I especially love Tex-Mex Pizza.
Crispy tortillas topped with refried beans, taco seasoned ground beef, salsa, and cheese. And then baked until the cheese is all melty and delicious! So simple but so good.
If you want to try making Tex-Mex Pizza at home, it’s actually really easy and takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish. It’s the perfect weeknight dinner the whole family will love!

Waffle Breakfast Tacos – cheesy eggs and crispy bacon stuffed into a waffle and drizzled with maple syrup! An easy and fun breakfast.
My favorite breakfasts are sweet and salty. Drizzle anything savory with maple syrup and I will love it. So I’m excited to share these Waffle Breakfast Tacos today!
Toasted waffles shaped like tacos and filled with crispy bacon, cheesy eggs, and drizzled with maple syrup. They are sweet and savory and also good for you! How can you go wrong with that?! …

No Bake Peanut Butter OREO Bites – just 5 ingredients! These no bake treats are easy to keep in the fridge for quick snacks!
Being a single mom with 3 in sports is no joke.
We had 3 games on Saturday. By the time one was over, we were late for the next.
And I was so unprepared that we ended up just getting food at the food trucks outside of each event.
So this week, I’m prepping snacks in advance, starting with these delicious chocolatey peanut butter bites.
Heeeey guys, how’s the week been?!
This is the last week of school for us so we’ve been crazy busy. Fat baby (who is neither fat nor a baby at this point) graduated from kindergarten:
And we’ve had award ceremonies and parties and everything else that comes with the end of the school year. Pretty excited to force my children to go for hikes a few times a week for the next 3 months.
Also? Stupid excited to not have to pack school lunches anymore. I am so over it at this point.
Hiii guys, we made it through another week. I made ice cream to celebrate.
You were expecting a cocktail?
Yeah, I know.
My life’s been weird this last month and I’m so out of this whole blogging routine right now. I have, however, made 3 kinds of ice cream in the past week so… let’s just just go with it.
Next week I’ll make a cocktail. Promise.
In the meantime, I made that grapefruit ginger bourbon sour from last year the other night and it was just as delicious as I remembered. So if you are looking for a drink idea today, use that one!
Happy Saturday, guys!
We went out for waffles this morning but not much else planned yet.
This week’s menu plan is ready and extra delicious! We have one of my favorite soups (seriously, you have to make it!), a quick stir fry, skillet bread, a quick and easy pasta, and the ultimate comfort food, shepherd’s pie! Plus, a sweet and salty treat, coffee cake, and energy bites!
Have a fabulous weekend!
Make sure you print your grocery list before you head to the store!

Happy New Years Eve, y’all!
Have you made a resolution to eat healthier in the new year? I kind of have…? The holidays are just full of bad foods so it’s the right time to get back to healthier eating but, I don’t really have a game plan going into it. Just going to try to eat more salads and less junk. Sounds easy enough, right?
If you have also decided to try to eat a little healthier next month, I have an awesome list of healthy recipes for you to try. There are over 25 healthy dinner ideas, snacks, smoothies, breakfasts – everything to get you started eating a little bit better.
I hope you have a safe and happy new year! Have a delicious glass of champagne, eat one last bad meal, and I’ll see you next year!
Happy Halloween y’all!
Man, we got SO MUCH RAIN yesterday. Hopefully it’s all done so we go trick-or-treating tonight!
This week’s family menu plan looks delicious as always. We have a couple warm and cozy soup recipes, two slow cooker meals, and pasta with squash sauce! My fave! Plus, coffee cake (cake for breakfast! woohoo!) and brownies!
I hope you have a fun Halloween and if you’ve already done your trick-or-treating, I hope you enjoy all the candy you can steal from your kids!

I feel like it’s about time I update you on my AeroGarden! Last we talked about it, I was mildly obsessed and carefully analyzing the growth of each herb every morning while my coffee brewed.
Guess what. Nothing’s changed.
Except now my herbs are HUGE.
And this is after trimming everything and using some of pretty much everything. They are growing so fast! I cannot even believe that I grew all this. By myself.
I’d just made a ginormous batch of salsa when I took this photo which is why the cilantro is so small. But trust me, within days I’ll have enough to make more salsa!
And I left the water cap off for the photos so you guys could see how easy it is to add the water and the nutrients. Every 14 days, a little reminder pops up for the nutrients and right now, I’m adding water pretty much everyday. Which I think it a good thing since my plants are growing so fast and so big.
I find that I am going through cilantro like crazy! Prior to having my AeroGarden, I avoided using too much cilantro because it gets expensive really quick but man, I am loving having my favorite herb right in my kitchen. I used it in both the sauce and to garnish these enchiladas and it’s just so delicious!
There’s a Twitter party on December 9, 2014 at 9 pm EST / 6 pm PST that will feature a giveaway of 6 AeroGarden units! Register for that party here. And I have a surprise! I’ve got one of the questions for the Twitter party!
What Herbs are included in the (7 pod) Gourmet Herb Seed Kit?
And finally, there is a Facebook giveaway at Kitchen Play with one ULTRA LED AeroGarden unit being given out per week from November 22, 2014 to December 23, 2014. Make sure you check both of those out!

My favorite thing about this time of year is the cheap strawberries. Target had them for $1 a pound this past week! I’m pretty sure we’ve had strawberries for breakfast, lunch, and dinner almost every night. No one’s complaining though!
Strawberry cupcakes are something I’ve wanted to make for awhile but I’ve just never gotten around to it. These guys were everything I hoped for. The cake had a very subtle strawberry taste thanks to the gentle folding but the buttercream – oh, the buttercream. It was exploding with strawberry flavor. And the pink? Totally natural, no food colors at all! That is why I love working with strawberries.
