Egg Roll in a Bowl

We love Asian-inspired dishes. We try to incorporate a lot of Asian-inspired and Mexican-inspired dishes because those are the two cuisines we love the most. This means we eat them a lot too, which means things can get stale and boring. So we try to find new recipes to keep our meals fresh and fun. This month we are flooded with lots of extra things to do, but we also have the benefit of a few extra days off together as a family thanks to the holidays. We love to cook, but since we are usually so busy we don't...

Simple Meals: Slow Cooker Honey Teriyaki Chicken

Slow cooker meals make a busy parent's day so much easier. I love having a meal planned without the hassle of having to do a lot of work after coming home from a long day. I love my crock pot and I love my instant pot. Both of them have saved my family from bad takeout meals on several occasions. We have a lot of busy days this time of year. Spring brings out the nicer weather and the longer days, both at work and at our kids extracurricular activities. So we try to plan ahead for meals during this...

We have so much going on that some mornings I think to myself we just won't eat today, and I always regret it. So now we are preemptively fighting that no breakfast-breakfast with pre-made egg cups. I found this quick and easy-to-tailor egg cup recipe at Life Made Keto. I love this tutorial not because of its keto friendly instructions, but because...

Simple Dinners: Red Lobster Shrimp Scampi Copycat

Our family always loves a great seafood dinner. Shrimp is a huge hit, so much so that we try to buy it pretty regularly and make meals at home with it. I tend to purchase pre-cooked frozen shrimp, usually with tails off so I do not have to do too much extra work at meal prep. This makes it easy to consume seafood which we are constantly told to include in heart and brain-healthy diets. My husband absolutely loves Red Lobster it has always been one of his favorite restaurants. Since they do not offer a lot of gluten-free options...

Homemade Cherry Icee

Are your kids already finished with school? We finish this week. This means that we will already be enjoying the slower pace of summertime. While mommy and daddy continue to work all summer and the kids go to day camp we try to maintain some sort of slower routine when it comes to summer. There is no homework and we continue our sports, but the days are longer and we have a little more time to enjoy them. One of the ways we like to celebrate the end of school is with a sweet treat. We love icees, frozen yogurt,...
