Earth Day Avocado Toasts

Happy Earth Day, peeps!! This weekend was so beautiful and we were able to snag some time outside with family as we celebrated Easter. My husband and I planted some flowers yesterday and we had our Easter egg hunt outside. Sunshine is SO good for our souls! It’s as if all of our spirits are […]

My Favorite Quiche

It’s been a few years since my husband and I hosted our first brunch. We had my in-laws over to celebrate Mother’s Day and I decided to take a chance on a couple of recipes I found on Pinterest. The quiche was the bomb.com, but the french toast casserole I made was a bust. Luckily […]

Chick in Egg Pancakes

I have this ongoing note in my phone with recipes I come up with on a whim. Whether I’m in the grocery store and see a food I’d like to use in a recipe, or if I’m at a restaurant and become inspired by a dish I’m eating, I’m always adding to the list. I […]

DIY Floral Wire Bunny Ears

I’m a sucker for bunny ears this time of year. The kids always look SO adorable in them. Target sells them every year, but to be honest, I wasn’t crazy about what they had at the stores near me. There are so many cute small shops that make the most gorgeous floral ears, but because […]

Crunchy Hash Brown Casserole

One of my good friends, Natalie, brought over a hash brown casserole a couple of years ago and it was one of the best breakfast casseroles I’ve ever had. I mean, my mouth just filled with saliva thinking about it. It’s literally drool-worthy and now my go-to for any breakfast/brunch gatherings we have. The casserole […]

I’ve been thinking about the kids’ Easter baskets for some time now between searching for shops on Etsy and finding inspiration from some of the influencers I follow. It was super important for me to include local shops because there’s so much heart and soul that goes into small business and it’s really important for […]

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I’m super excited to start a day after being sick with a cold for a few days. I can’t remember the last time I just sat around and did absolutely nothing, but I was able to this weekend and I almost feel like I didn’t know what to do with myself! Shout […]

Kale & Apple Toddler Smoothie

I’ve found that the easiest way to get kids to eat veggies is in smoothie form. Peyton will usually eat any veggie we give her and often asks to eat them raw (she’s something else), but Emory has a select group of veggies he will eat and others kind of have to be “hidden” in […]

The Best Restaurants in Chicago

I feel like this post is long overdue. My love for Chicago restaurants runs deep and after living in the city for a couple of years in my mid-twenties, and continuing to go back just for the food, it’s safe to say I am in love with the cuisine Chicago chefs continue to dish out. […]

Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats

Our St. Patrick’s Day celebration isn’t ever anything big, but one things for sure, we eat  corned beef and cabbage. I actually just bought some from our local meat company for the first time and I’m so excited to cook it in the slow cooker this weekend. Other than that, we don’t really celebrate in […]
