Sale Papers + {Watermelon Bacon Salad}

I did something for the first time in 31 years yesterday.  In light of the big changes coming up in my life, I mentioned that Dear Hubby and I would be tightening our belts a bit, sticking to a strict budget (until we figure out exactly how one income is really going to feel), and simplifying things.  I also told you about our mail organization - every item on a daily basis either goes in the "To File" container, the "To Pay" container, o ...

The Red Table + {Strawberry Pesto Grilled Cheese}

My friend Gina has a blog called Running to the Kichen, and I am always jealous of a) her photography, b) her meals, c) her extreme creativity, and d) her really cool backgrounds.  I had the privilege of meeting her at Blend, and love her to death! She recently wrote a post about her special "photoboard" with instructions on how to create your own.  I was so excited to try to make one of my own someday (in all my spare time, ha!!).  But then I remembered

{Pineapple Teriyaki Meatloaf} made with Greek Yogurt

There's some people who just like things the way they like them: Traditional. Simple. Predictable.  I'd venture to say Dear Hubby is like this...in most areas.  But me, not so much.  I like flair.

Smashed Blackberry & Basil Grilled Cheese

Time to fess up: How often/long do you look at Pinterest?  I'm probably a 15 minute a day kind of girl. I was perusing the other day, scrolling through the hundreds of pins and images when I was immediately stopped in my tracks.  I saw the most beautiful sandwich my eyes have ever seen.  I even commented on it, which I never do: "WOW. I am salivating! That looks so yummy - and the best part is... ... Read more » about Smashed Blackberry & Basil Grilled Cheese

Broccoli + {Go-To Meal: Lemon Ginger Sesame Chicken}

As you probably know, I've made it a priority to get healthy this year: going from the Obese BMI range down to the Healthy BMI range, which I celebrated with a photoshoot!  This all stemmed from my strong desire to teach Babycakes what it looks like to life a happy healthy life.  How could I teach her, if I wasn't living it out myself?  It has been a wild ride, with challenges along the way, but I a ...

Go-To Meal: Taco Salad

I got this idea from one of my new Blends (Blogger + Friend), Lindsay.  She blogs over at The Lean Green Bean.  She talks about in this post, how we all have "go-to" meals...you know, the ones that are quick and easy and delicious and that we can pretty much make in our sleep.  I loved her series idea so much that I want to do it on my blog as well.  These go-to meals are often simple and mayb ...

Remember the Blend retreat, way back when?  If your memory is a little foggy, you should definitely go back and read this post...and this one:  an amazing weekend, with amazing ladies, doing amazing things!

{Mango Cured Bacon Goat Cheese Burgers}
