Oriental Salad

Hey guys! Sorry for the slower movement of posts. That’s just going to be how it is with me feeling like I’m ready to pop with the twins and when they come until I get my crap together. (Will that ever happen or no?) Encouraging words my way, please and thank you. I’m 31 weeks…

Cheesy Grits w/ Sausage, onion, and bell peppers

Grits! An ultimate comfort food. I started making these a couple years back when I had Calvin. It was a complicated Shrimp and Grits recipe that was really good but really time consuming so I knew it wasn’t going to be made in the future if I didn’t simplify it. I have kept making it…

Lemon Vegetable Pasta

Hey everyone! I know it’s been awhile. We are actually in the process of moving to a bigger apartment right now- in 8 days! And I have nothing packed. I’m trying to balance school, being a good mom to Calv, keeping the house tidy, making quick and healthy meals for us, and being pregnant with…

Guacamole dip

Say Hello to this new Guacamole Recipe now in your back pocket and Goodbye to your old one. Because this one is ten times better. I wasn’t convinced of it either until my dad made it (with my mom’s instruction) while Calvin and I were visiting during the Superbowl. After I had a bite I…

Homemade Breadsticks

Hey everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful, happy Easter. We sure did. Calvin was able to play with his cousins and we had fun with family. They were able to stay a few more days too so we get to go have dinner with them at grandma’s tonight! Kids ran around and played and…

Bagel Sandwiches

Growing up my sister, Kamber, who you’ve all heard about if you’ve read my blog posts and who loves bread and gummy worms more than anyone in the world, inspires my food posts sometimes. She makes great recipes. This isn’t a recipe per se but I just remember growing up and she would always make…

Mexican Lasagna

Hey guys! Life has been the same around here yet crazy at the same time with the expecting of twins. We’re not able to know if we can move yet and when and where so I feel like we’re not able to prepare quite yet- and that’s so tempting to do because it’s so exciting!…

Eggzella

Hey everyone! Let me start off by saying thank you for all of your congratulations on our twin announcement! I loved every comment and made me love you guys even more. We really are so excited to start this adventure. Nervous, but excited. How can I say thank you?? Well, for starters I’ll share this…

Sweet Stuff

I recently just got back from visiting my family in California for the week and it was awesome. Calvin did great on the plane flights and we were lucky enough to get the whole row to ourselves to and from! Couldn’t have gone smoother. He was so happy to see nana & papa. I was…

Berry Soup

Happy Valentines day week! I know I have been MIA for a couple weeks but really I’ve been working my tail off on this blog! I have so many new recipes that I am so excited to share because they are so delicious. Calvin and I went to nana’s house back home in California for…

Brownie in a Mug

Hey everyone! I am loving how much I have really connected with my readers lately through all my social media accounts. You guys are the best! Each comment I get makes me feel so supported! I have many plans and posts I am eager to share but I’m trying to take it slow so I…

Challah Bread

  So I have to admit, this was my first time making Challah Bread! I mentioned in my post a couple weeks ago that I wanted to include some of my favorite recipes and go-to’s that aren’t mine and have some reviews. I didn’t plan on blogging this at all but I made it and…
