Soft & Chewy Peanut Butter S’mores Cookies

S'mores Cookies (2 of 4)

Last night we had another girls night, we decided to make them a monthly event! It's so fun to have a night with the girls! We just got back from D.C. so I had to make something that I had all the ingredients for and this fit the bill! Not to mention that I love anything with s'mores flavors in them! I love to put a thin layer of peanut butter on my s'mores so I decided to sub some of the … Read More

Copycat Chuy’s Creamy Jalapeno Dip

Chicken Skewers (3 of 6)

If I visit a city that has a Chuy's Mexican Restaurant I high tail it over there asap! Their food tastes so fresh and you can't beat their tortillas! Upon arrival, they bring you chips, salsa & creamy jalapeno dip. I'd never ventured out and tried the jalapeno dip until the last time I ate there, and I'm so glad I did! This dip is so addictive! You just can't stop eating it! It's got just … Read More

Grilled Honey Lime Chicken Skewers

Chicken Skewers (6 of 6)

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw my husband grilling up these skewers last week. I have to brag on him, he's becoming quite the grill master. He went grocery shopping all by himself and grilled me steak & chicken this past weekend for Mother's Day! More about our Mother's Day adventures later. These skewers were absolutely incredible! They had such great flavor and had a nice … Read More

Loaded Potato Salad

Loaded Potato Salad (1 of 1)

I love the classic mustard based potato salad but I thought it would be fun to try a different twist and pack in all the flavors of a loaded baked potato. Adam absolutely loves loaded baked potatoes so I thought he would like this. He didn't just like it, he went crazy for it!! He said, we better be having this again! He's always saying I make things he likes but that he never gets to have … Read More

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Deviled Eggs.4 (1 of 1)

I made these for Easter weekend and my family just raved over them! I think they might be the best deviled eggs I've ever had, which is saying a lot! They are so creamy and have such a great flavor!! These would be great at a Memorial Day cookout or Fourth of July or I might just make them for a mid week meal, haha! Good thing about this recipe is that it is easily halved to make 1 dozen … Read More

Sophie 6 Months

Sophie 6 Months.1

I thought since Sophie is now 6 1/2 months that it was time for an update. She is doing great! She's rolling over and sitting up almost all by herself.  We still put the Boppy around her most of the time to prevent any falls but she isn't near as wobbly as she was. She's starting to say consonants and has said Mama & Dada a couple times. If you ask here Where's Mommy or Daddy she looks … Read More

Avocado Cilantro Dressing

Avocado Dressing (2 of 4)

I thought I would share a way to enjoy Cinco de Mayo a bit healthier.  This dressing would be perfect on a southwest chicken salad with black beans, corn, & tomatoes! It's also great on a regular salad and would be delicious as a topping for chicken or as a sauce in tacos. It's got a great sweet & citrusy flavor and has a nice creaminess from the avocado. Avocado Cilantro … Read More
