Pumpkin Streusel Bread (& muffins!)

I bought a huge can of pumpkin that needed to be used up, and per The Hubby’s request I made these pumpkin goods for an early morning hunting trip breakfast and for guests we were having stay the night. These were simple to make and the streusel topping gave it a little extra something special […]

What she wore Wednesday

The moment I found out we were having a girl, I broke out in tears. Happy tears. Very happy tears. Not only because I knew I always wanted to have a girl at some point, but because let’s be honest, there are just so many cute girl’s clothes out there that are hard to resist. […]

Pumpkin Spice Scones

With two cans of pumpkin in my pantry and a husband begging for a pumpkin treat, I scoured Pinterest before coming across this recipe and knew I had hit the jackpot. These “Starbucks knockoff” pumpkin scones are even better than the “real” thing and were approved by my whole family.  A few times. 😉 Below […]

Quinoa, corn and avocado salad with a cilantro lime dressing

This is my new FAVORITE salad. It is fresh, filling and full of yummy goodness. For not having any meat in it, it sure is packed full of protein as well as healthy veggies and is topped with a delicious, sweet and sour cilantro drizzle. I made this for a family dinner one night when […]

Coping mechanism

I went to a mom’s group last week for the first time in this new city and the topic of coping mechanisms came up.

Skinny Broccoli Apple Salad

Last week I browsed the internet for a basic broccoli salad recipe before we had guests over for a BBQ. I found one that looked very appealing and healthy, so I thought I’d give it a try and substitute what I already had on-hand. It turned out great! And our guests enjoyed it as well. […]

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Nothing says “fall” to me more than pumpkins. Pumpkins on my porch, pumpkin carving, pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin baked goods. The weather around here has been a bit cooler lately and since I needed a baked treat for Labor Day weekend I decided to make these pumpkin whoopie pies, and let me tell you, […]
