My Dad’s Delicious Shrimp Kabobs

I just got back from THE BEST vacation ever. One of my very favorite friends got married and I got to spend (as my 4-year-old would say) “7 sleeps” with my family! Plus, to top it off, my dad cooked the most delicious grilled dinners for the family almost every night. So, I DIDN’T COOK ONCE! One […]

The Best Way To Cook Bone-In Chicken For Kids!

An alternate title to this post is “The SECOND Best Way To Cook Chicken Thighs” because we all know grilling is the best way to make chicken thighs taste great. But as a busy mom with little kids underfoot in the kitchen, this has quickly become my favorite way to prepare bone-in chicken. I have never liked […]

Today I forgot my purse. Yes, my purse. I went to grab my key-card to access the office building and it wasn’t in the car. It was sitting on my table at home. But what did make it in the car was my coffee (filled to the brim with no lid – no clue where […]

Broccoli, Ham & Cheddar Egg Muffins

Let’s face it – omelets are hard to eat while driving the car. Not that I’ve ever tried to do this, but I image it would be very frustrating and messy. (Cheese on the steering wheel, broccoli on your business suit, egg in your hair…you get the picture.) I’ve seen dozen of these “egg muffin” […]

How To Write A Book With A Friend

Four years ago, I wrote a book with my friend, Olivia. We were just crazy 20-somethings with a dream. And you know what? It was a long road but we are now published authors – with a agent and publisher and ebook on Amazon! After our book was published, we found we were answering a […]
