Meal Prep English Muffin Sammies

Anyone else get in those prepping moods? We try to prep foods for the week on Sunday evenings, but we got a tad behind and that didn’t happen… life, ya know. This morning I put together some freezer English muffin breakfast sammies. Bacon and a cracked egg in a muffin tin for 30 minutes at…

Let’s Eat! 2 Week mealplan

Here’s my 14 day meal plan consisting of mostly organic / “clean-ish” eating options. This feeds a family of 5-6 (sometimes with leftovers depending on how hungry everyone is!). My goal is to get the cost down, but this currently totals around $250 (shopping mostly sale items and/or using cartwheel coupons when shopping at Target)….

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!)…

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…

Individual BBQ Chicken Pizzas

It may be Winter, but in California we have days that feel like Spring or Summer that like to pop up when it’s suppose to be chilly.  On these warmer days, I like to make lighter meals.  Here’s a quick dish that everyone in my house loves.  Individual BBQ chicken pizzas made with Naan bread….

Corndog Muffins

My kiddos love corndogs, I’m not the biggest fan due to the amount of processing and added junk. So, to satisfy their corndog cravings without going fully into the dark hole of processed nastiness, here’s a homemade version of corndogs: Corndog Muffins.  They enjoy them (and so do I) as an after-school snack, or for…

Peppers ‘n Eggs

We eat eggs daily around here, and sometimes the two options of scrambled or fried gets a little old.  I like to try to change it up a bit with veggies, but don’t have the time to plate omelets or whip up a quiche for 5 when we’re rushing to get out the door every morning….

Heavenly Mac N Cheese

Who didn’t love macaroni and cheese growing up?  The ooey gooey, warm, cheesy goodness that many of us looked forward to as an after school snack.  I still grab a bowl when I make it for my kiddos.  Here’s a more decadent, sophisticated, if you must version on this childhood classic.  I call it Heavenly Mac…

Egg in a Basket

Growing up, this was one of my favorite breakfast dishes. This must be a Southern thing, because when I moved to California, and mentioned this breakfast to my roommates, they all looked at me crazy! But as soon as I made it, they all fell in love, and constantly asked me to make this again…

Coconut Donut Holes

Sometimes, we just need a donut.  Hot little puffs of sweet perfection.  Mmmmmmm.  I like donut holes because they’re more portable and I like to tell myself I’m consuming less calories than I would be eating an entire donut.  Ha ha ha.  My kids love them as well.  So, one day after school I came up…
