Oatmeal Breakfast Bars – Healthy Fast Breakfast Packed with Protein

Oatmeal Breakfast Bars and A Dog Part 1 Happy New Year! How are those New Year’s resolutions?  I once read that it takes at least 21 days 6 weeks to realistically form a new habit, so good luck!  I have some resolutions for myself this year, but it seems old habits die-hard. I


Homemade Peanut Butter and Cereal

Homemade Peanut Butter and Cereal The boys and I were off to the bus stop (yes, we are back in school) this morning, when Boy #2 politely remarks, “I forgot my water bottle.  Will you please go get it, mom?”  Should I be a Tiger Mom and respond with, “Too bad son.


Baked Eggs

Baked Eggs and Bathroom Talk I absolutely love spring time and the warmer temperatures the season brings.  The warmer temperatures result in endless hours of playing outside, for both the boys and I.  If we are not in our yard playing, we are on the soccer field, if we are not on


Buttermilk Pancakes With Chia Seeds and My March Madness

Whole Wheat Waffles for a Brinner to Remember

This summer I was blessed with a full house! For five consecutive weeks, a week-long beach trip in between with my sister, I had six kids ages seven years and younger running amok in my house.  My days were non-stop, challenging at times, and saying it was noisy would be an understatement.  So
