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.

Simple Homemade Baby Food

homemade baby food - using our blendtec

This post contains affiliate links. Our third baby.  My how things have changed and how much we had to work to simplify our routines, baby gear, and more.  We got rid of so many items (that we loved!) after we moved since we were done having kids that we really had to evaluate if we wanted to go back to that or try other methods. I'll be honest, I've never been one to just provide our baby with table scraps from our meals to teach them how to eat (also known as Baby Led Weaning).  We tried once for Luke and I was absolutely terrified.  Since we have kids all over the place now - I needed … [Read more...]

A few months after purchasing the PowerSheets we bought our (now forever) home.  The PowerSheets were safe in a box … [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...]

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #FreeToBe #CollectiveBias This past weekend we ventured out to a local campground with our 3 kids to meet up with 3 other families for a mini vacation.  It was fun, chaotic, and there was so much dirt.  When we were driving back home, Jon talked about how much work it was with all the set up, clean up, tear down and then joked "So, when do the kids get to have jobs?"  Hmmm. Good question.  I shared how my mom's been working with them to teach them to make their beds - and said we should … [Read more...]
