top 10 best soup recipes

This post contains affiliate links Now that the holidays are over, I think we can all agree that we are ready for spring. Unfortunately, we have to wait a few months for blooming flowers and spring-like weather. (And yes, it's actually going to be cold, gloomy & rainy in SoCal for a few weeks!!) The best part about having a few months of winter left is being able to eat delicious and hearty soup. I love being able to use my BlendTec  to create a warm and tasty soup for our family. Below I've rounded up 10 of my favorite soup recipes for you. Copycat Panera Bread Tomato Bisque … [Read more...]

Campground Eggs At Home

This is a sponsored post thanks to REVERE cookware.  This post may contain affiliate links A long long time ago, about 15 high school seniors went camping, alone, and had to survive on whatever cooking skills they had.  And at 18, I know I was not well versed in the kitchen department.  I think I could make toast.  But thankfully I was surrounded by others who could cook and one thing our friend Corney made was Campground Eggs.  I don't think this is the actual name. But, since we were at a campground, and they're made with eggs.... I prefer flour tortillas but you'll grab about 3-4 and … [Read more...]

Prepared Meals – Fresh to Your Door – Freshly Review

Fresh Meals To Your Door - Freshly Review

Freshly was kind enough to send me a start set of 6 meals to try out.  Below is my impression! If you're searching for a company to send fresh meals to someone (new parents, someone recovering from a surgery, a parent who is solo-parenting while the other is on a business trip) - PLEASE read on.  Spoiler alert but I loved the ease of everything that arrived.  Receiving a shipment of food without having to cut, chop, marinate, etc - and heat up in 1-2 minutes is just pure awesomeness. Ok so what is Freshly?  They're prepared meals delivered right to your door.  There's a variety of options … [Read more...]

All opinions are mine alone. #QuakerTime #CollectiveBias One of the simple things I have really grown to love is packing Aubrey's lunch for preschool.  Last year I often shared on Instagram what was in her lunch.  I'm not sure why, but I know I always liked to see what other moms (and dads!) were packing for the kids.  I'd get some new ideas and would test them out with Aubrey.  She's not a picky eater by any means, but I know she always enjoys the same theme included - a fruit (sometimes a veggie), something crunchy, … [Read more...]

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SundsOutSpoonsOut #CollectiveBias For Mother's Day, we decided to get all fancy at home and we made a Crepe Bar.  I was in charge of making the crepes, and we all brainstormed ahead of time on what to stuff them with.  It turns out, my mom and I each had recipes for "crepes" but they were 2 completely different methods.  Mine were actually Swedish Pancakes and hers were more traditional French Crepes.  After a taste test, mine won out and we all enjoyed them.  They were super easy to make … [Read more...]

Dell Meal Planning | Build Your Own Pizza |Rustic Crust

There's just something about a lazy Sunday afternoons and warm sunshine that just make me so happy.  I know it's crazy to have 80 and 90 degree temps in March, but that's what seems to pop up every now and then in SoCal.  I just roll with it :)  Even though I haven't blogged about it weekly, I've still maintained our #DellMealPlanning on Instagram and work on our meal schedule each week and will soon be sharing our fancy new method of displaying it for the adults to read.  One thing about meal planning is always having a few easy dinners to plug in when you know you'll be wiped out from a busy … [Read more...]
