“Skinny” Mexican Casserole

So, I have been out of cooking mode for a few weeks, but it’s time to jump back in. Last night I made this easy, tasty “Skinny” Mexican Casserole. It is packed with tons of veggies and uses whole wheat tortillas, so even though it’s Mexican food and may seem indulgent, it’s really not too […]

Dill & Red Onion Dressing

  We love salads and a dressing can definitely make or break a salad. Lately we’ve been using a mixture of olive oil and balsamic vinegar or my old standby of ranch, so I whipped up this concoction yesterday to try something a little different and it was pretty tasty. Ingredients: 1/4 red onion, minced […]

My husband is not a morning person. He also drives over 90 miles each way 3-4 days a week for work. So, I try to provide him with a quick and semi-healthy breakfast (that also doesn’t take too much time for me) as often as I can. I don’t think he enjoys protein shakes as […]

DIY Dry Shampoo

I’ve been an every day hair washer all my life. I’ve even been known to wash my hair twice in one day. Yes, I’ve been killing my poor hair slowly with shampoo, conditioner, blow drying, heat styling, and other various products. For the last couple of months, I’ve washed it a lot less and I’ve been […]

Garlic & Herb Potato Wedges

We had no big plans for Christmas Day, which was admittedly fabulous, since my husband and I don’t really have an opportunity to just hang out much these days. I made blueberry muffins in the morning and we snacked on various treats throughout the day, but when it came time for dinner, we realized we […]
