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...

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.

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,...

Glow in the Dark Bubbles

Summer is quickly approaching, which means long days and late nights. We love to spend as much time as we can outdoors in the summer. Life in the hot SoCal desert can mean a lot of very hot afternoons retreating to pools or air conditioning, however, we love to escape back outside as the weather cools and the sun goes down. This means a lot of meals spent outdoors and evenings enjoying the cooler night air. We try to keep the kids busy and playing. For the most part, they ride bikes, play with friends, and create adventures on their...
