New Features: PRINT & PIN-IT + {Citrus Pancakes}

Today is a very exciting day for me!  Like on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest it's probably a 9.8. Hey, I have to save the 10 for something even MORE EXCITING brewing in my near future :)  So today, I'm announcing and introducing a couple new features on the blog that will hopefully delight you and make your user experience so much better: PRINT and PIN-IT.  You can now click one button to PRINT the recipe (below) and take it directly to your local grocery store

{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. I like creativity. I like trying new things. I like making grilled cheese with blackberries & basil. ... Read more » about {Pineapple Teriyaki Meatloaf} made with Greek Yogurt

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 ...

No Pioneer Woman + {A Communion of Sorts}

Now I'm no Pioneer Woman, who got 48,000 comments on ONE BLOG POST (I left a comment myself to try to win an awesome turquoise pot...ha! No such luck.)  But, as I posted on Facebook yesterday, I have been overwhelmed with the number of visits/views/pins of my Strawberry Banana Greek Yogurt Bread and its Blueberry version...over 30,000 just this month!  I hope many of you have actually gotten the chance to make them and taste them for yourselves.  This excitement and pinning action piqued my interest. 

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 ...

{Mango Cured Bacon Goat Cheese Burgers}

If you missed yesterday's guest post by the lovely Corrie Anne, please go back and check it out.  She beautifully illustrated her 5 essentials for a happy healthy life, and did it all with alliteration :)  I don't know about you, but this has been the longest 4 day week in history...ha!  The memories of Memorial Day weekend: a bbq with the extended family, ladderball in the backyard, and beers on the patio seem soooooooooo far away.  But ...

Determination + {Strawberries & Cream Pancakes}

Last night everything was screaming "NO RUN"...legs were sore, Babycakes wouldn't go to sleep, stomach hurt, and even dear hubby was whispering: "You could just skip it tonight." But my heart wanted it.  I had commited to YOU on Facebook that I would run 2 miles after work, and I just wanted to do something GOOD for my body.  So, I tied those purple laces and headed out the door while dear hubby ...
