Sugar Skull Skirt and Fedora

I’m not yet in the mood for full-on Spring florals.  So, in the meantime, I’ll be sporting a breezy skirt and blocking the sun in a much more subtle color palette.  Here’s my hi-low sugar skull print skirt with an easy black tank and light straw fedora.

One-Pot Veggie Penne with Chicken and Sun-dried Tomatoes

I adore one-pot meals.  Dishes pile continuously throughout the day in my home, so I’m always looking to create less mess when it comes to cooking dinner.  Hallelujah for one-pot meals.  Really, they’re a life-safer for this crazy-busy momma!  Here’s a favorite for us, and thankfully it doesn’t take too many ingredients (or dishes, yay!)…

Super Moist Banana Bread With Chunks of Dark Chocolate

I had a couple of bananas on their last day of survival before making it to the trash.  Spotted brown and slightly softened, the only way to enjoy these babies were in a bread.  I’ve been stuck home treating an asthmatic child and haven’t made it to the grocery store in 3 days!  Thankfully, this…

Easter Treats

Hyped up on sugary sweets it’s not how I like to celebrate Easter.  Besides, that’s not what Easter is all about, but let’s save that for another post.  There are many alternatives to filling those plastic eggs with things other than chocolate (that melts in the sun while they hunt for them anyway).  Here are…

Bulletproof Coffee

Yes, you read that right… It’s bulletproof!  Coconut oil in your coffee. Coconut oil is one of the few foods that can be classified as a “superfood.”  Its unique combination of fatty acids can have profound positive effects on health.  The medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil have been shown to increase 24 hour energy…

Playing with Sight Words

During my years of Homeschool I learned one simple thing: you can’t force your kids to learn.  You can beg, plead, haggle, threaten, bribe… you name it, they won’t budge.  And, who wants a learning environment like that anyway?  I’ve learned it’s a MUST to make learning fun, and to adapt to your specific child’s…

Yummy Coconut Pancakes

If you’ve been following my blog, I think it’s pretty well established that breakfast foods are my most favorite.  Like my good man Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation says “There has never been a sadness that can’t be cured by breakfast food.”  Such wisdom, Ron, such wisdom. Ingredients: 4 eggs 1 cup milk (coconut and…
