Blueberry Crumble Pie with Shortbread Crust

I love blueberries….any way you fix them. Growing up, my Grammy made a lot of blueberry muffins, blueberry cobblers, and, occasionally, a blueberry pie. For quite a few summers in a row, one of my Uncle Mo’s good friends provided a steady supply of fresh blueberries.  Grammy always froze them and we had (almost) freshContinue reading “Blueberry Crumble Pie with Shortbread Crust”

Snacking Healthy: Salted Chocolate Coconut DeLight

My adventure on Noom and my new healthy lifestyle continues. (if I was saying this out loud I would’ve used air quotes around healthy lifestyle) And as I continue to Noom right along, I’m learning how to better use my very limited calories to the ensure I’m satisfied from not only a hunger standpoint butContinue reading “Snacking Healthy: Salted Chocolate Coconut DeLight”

Mommy Review Monday: Batiste Dry Shampoo, Dark & Deep Brown

It took me a long time to break down and try dry shampoo, mostly because I always assumed it only worked for blondes. As I was getting my hospital bag ready for delivering the twins, one of the things I kept seeing on many new moms lists was dry shampoo. So I figured it wasContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Batiste Dry Shampoo, Dark & Deep Brown”

Super Easy Sangrias for a Crowd

As I said in my last post on Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies, we had friends over for Nacho Night last night. That definitely called for sangrias. I looooove sangrias! So I whipped some up. Or maybe I should say: I bought some sangria and fruit and put them together. So here’s my “recipe” since myContinue reading “Super Easy Sangrias for a Crowd”

Sweet Saturday: Salted Carmel Pretzel Brownies

Today I’m gearing up for Nacho Night. More on that in a separate blog. I had some boxes of Hershey’s Triple Chocolate Brownie mix that have been calling to me. Judge me if you must but if you’ve not tried this mix, found at Sam’s Club, you are missing out. They’re super easy and everyContinue reading “Sweet Saturday: Salted Carmel Pretzel Brownies”

Mommy Review Monday: ezpz Happy Mat – One-piece silicone placemat + plate

DISCLOSURE: Due to the recent iPhone update my i’s are now malfunctioning. I️ am NOT going back through to fix. I’m too frustrated. Sorry folks.

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”

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”

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”
