Mommy Review Monday: Happy Healthy Parent Waterproof Silicone Bib

With my first two kids, I used Bumkins bibs and they’re great but I decided to try some the Happy Healthy Parent waterproof silicone bibs for the twins.  Here’s what I like about them: They come in a 2- pack with free shipping through Amazon Prime.  The colors are cute: Clara’s is purple and Kate’s is pink. TheContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Happy Healthy Parent Waterproof Silicone Bib”

Icebox Oreo Pie

This is another one of my “throw together what you’ve got” recipes. A few weeks back I bought a couple of chocolate pie crusts off of the clearance rack and put them in the freezer.  Cheapskate, frugal, thrifty. Call me what you want. I was glad I had them the day we decided to haveContinue reading “Icebox Oreo Pie”

Red, White, and Blue Pico de Gallo

It’s just not Independence Day if you don’t make something red, white, and blue. I scoured Pinterest, looking for a healthy patriotic dish that wasn’t a dessert. I happened upon this recipe for Blueberry, Strawberry & Jicama Salsa by Maria and Josh of Two Peas and Their Pod.  It immediately jumped out at me becauseContinue reading “Red, White, and Blue Pico de Gallo”

Baked Parmesan Crusted Zucchini

I love zucchini any way it’s cooked. Growing up, my Grammy made the best fried zucchini. My mouth waters just remembering it.  I rarely make it because the frying isn’t all that healthy and it’s also kind of a pain. I decided to take a stab at doing an oven baked, slightly-altered version with some freshContinue reading “Baked Parmesan Crusted Zucchini”

Making Baby Food- Part 2: What and How I Made Baby Food 

After our trip to the grocery store (see my previous post, Part 1: The Why and Preparation), I got started.    Honestly, it hasn’t been that bad. I never expected to be the mom that makes homemade baby food but, surprisingly, I actually enjoyed it. I went into it without recipes but more of a generalContinue reading “Making Baby Food- Part 2: What and How I Made Baby Food “

Making Baby Food- Part 1: The Background and Preparation 

I’ve never tried making my own baby food. Honestly, I’ve been intimidated by it. The thought of cooking, blending, and storing it all seemed like a daunting task. Plus, we are on the go a lot so jarred baby food has been convenient to grab and go.  But after about almost two months of the girlsContinue reading “Making Baby Food- Part 1: The Background and Preparation “

Spicy Zucchini Spaghetti with Turkey Meatballs

I’ve been planning to cook zucchini spaghetti for two months and never have actually done it, despite it being on the menu. Tonight I finally did since I had plenty of zucchini in the fridge to be used.    I went into this not having a plan but I  knew that I had to useContinue reading “Spicy Zucchini Spaghetti with Turkey Meatballs”

Grilled Sriracha Honey Chicken

  Because I knew Garen Grillmaster was already going to be grilling Cilanro Ranch Chicken for us last night, I went ahead whipped some sauce up for him to cook some Grilled Sriracha Honey Chicken.  Garen loves Sriracha…He puts it on an estimated 40% of his food, so when I saw the pin of Sweet Sriracha Chicken from KaceyContinue reading “Grilled Sriracha Honey Chicken”

Cilantro Ranch Chicken

 This is another one of my thrown-together “using what I’ve got” recipes. I had a Sam’s club size container of sour cream. Usually, I only use sour cream with chicken in casseroles or crockpot dishes, so I was really going out on limb here deciding to grill it.  I even broke one of my cardinalContinue reading “Cilantro Ranch Chicken”
