Oh goodness. We’re dealing with the dreaded stomach bug at our house. Julia was up with it all night Saturday night and now Mac has it. I’m praying it passes quickly and that Jason and I are miraculously spared. We finished our 21 Day Fix yesterday (more to come a …

Happy President’s Day, friends! I’m thrilled to have the day off and extra time with my little loves. Julia has her first dentist appointment today. Pray for us. Our stove was FINALLY fixed last week, so I had a bit more fun planning our menu for this week. Today …

Monday again! This weekend was crazy busy and filled with highs and lows. We attended a funeral for a family friend Saturday afternoon and it was incredibly emotional. After the funeral I hosted my first ever cooking class with my mom. My kitchen was filled with 15 lovely lad …

I try to live my life as balanced as possible. I love cooking and eating healthy dishes, and I truly enjoy pushing myself to be physically fit. But I also love baking (and eating) gooey chocolate chip cookies. And I love Mexican food- nachos and cheese dip, to be exact. My bi …

Monday again? How is it that the week drags on forever and the weekend flies by? I really need a day between Saturday and Sunday! The silver lining is that this Friday is Teacher Work Day and next Monday is MLK Day so it’s almost like a four-day weekend. I didn’t …

January 8, 2015 duchessoffork 0

My freezer is always stocked with 5-10 sliced bananas. Jason and I have been on a smoothie kick for the past year or so and we use frozen bananas instead of ice for a much creamier smoothie. The first time I attempted to freeze a banana I stuck the whole thing, peel and all, …
