by katherine on May 15, 2014

We’ve been pretty die-hard Taco Tuesday fans in our house for a while now…so long that I can’t actually remember when it started. Over the course of our Taco Tuesdays we’ve even converted a number of people to following along. It often comes up in conversation at daycare drop off or pick up…especially on Tuesday […]


Yup. Thankful.

by katherine on November 29, 2013

Holy crap just realized I almost missed posting today! I guess I got too caught up in sleeping in until 8 am, not showering until 11 am, cooking a perfectly timed and quite delicious thanksgiving spread ready at 5:30 PM sharp, then eating dessert and playing board games for the next two hours. Today was […]

by katherine on November 21, 2013

I’ve noticed a lot of chatter online these last couple of weeks about meal planning and the dreaded question of “what’s for dinner?”.

Dinner Disappointment: Crock Pot Mongolian Beef

It hasn’t exactly been a secret that our {read: my} transition from summer to school year has been…rough. Things seem to be settling into a groove now. I think. I hope. It gets easier right? Through this transition, I’ve found that there are just some things that are out of my control. Like how long […]

by katherine on February 22, 2013

In the last two weeks, I’ve tried a handful of new recipes. I’m always on the lookout for easy, tasty and healthy-ish recipes that my family loves…and I figured, hey maybe you are too!

Meal Planning Calendar {Free Printable}

by katherine on February 19, 2013

So, step two in my meal planning is monthly meal tracking. After the month is over, I transfer all our my weekly meal plans onto a month calendar. I started doing this about 4 months ago and I’m already questioning why I hadn’t started this earlier. There have been multiple times that I’ll flip back […]
