Dirty Cauliflower Rice is a healthy way to do the classic cajun dish! Spicy cauliflower rice with onions, peppers, and turkey sausage. Use ground turkey to make it paleo!

Heeey guys, happy almost Friday! How’s the week?

I’ve had a crazy busy week but besides one total meltdown that included sending crying snaps to multiple people (about shoes, y’all! SHOES!) it’s been a really good week.

Highlight of my week so far has been street tacos and nobody should be surprised by that. I’m kind of half-heartedly working on a post about the best restaurants in the area (without going to Austin) so if you’ve got any non-chain suggestions, send ’em my way!

Hey guys!

How are the resolutions going?

Mine are going really well. You guys know that one of my goals is to significantly cut back on the animal products that my household consumes. It’s easier than anticipated – I don’t even think my kids have noticed!

This meatless, dairy-free Black Bean Soup has become a favorite among all of us!

I hope you have a fabulous week!

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins - moist and delicious banana muffins with chocolate chips! Perfect for a quick breakfast and kids love them!

Okay guys, it’s the first day back in real life for us. The kids have to go to school. I have to pretend like I’m cleaning the house all day and not watching CNN while I lay in bed. The usual.

My kids actually just got back from their dad’s house on Sunday night – they were gone for, like, 10 or 11 days. I didn’t go to the grocery store a single time they were gone. Our fridge is bare. Like, totally bare.

There’s literally just leftover pho, half a carton of cashew milk, and 2 limes.

And if you know me at all you know there’s not a chance in heck that I’m going to the grocery store with all 3 boys.

No.

Nope.

Not happening ever.

So I made a loaf of bread for sandwiches, cookies for lunchboxes, and these Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins for breakfast.

Thai Mushroom Lettuce Wraps - delicious meatless lettuce wraps! Healthy, quick, and cheap!

Heeeeey guys! Happy New Year! Hope you had a safe and fabulous weekend and are ready to get to work on those 2017 resolutions.

First, I wanted to say thanks to you guys for sticking around all these years. I appreciate every comment, every email, every single time you click on my site. I love you guys.

Anyway, I skipped the whole year in review post this year because this last year was somehow the best and worst year of my life and my blog was a total mess because of it. My highs were really high and my lows were really, really, really low and honestly, I don’t even know how I managed to blog most of the time.

I’m going into 2017 knowing it’ll be probably the hardest year of my life but also knowing that things will look a lot better on the other side of this mess.

So, again, thank you for everything.
