Yay for not waking up in the dark anymore! The days are just a little bit longer and that makes for a happier everyone I think! That said, it did snow a bit today. Which means...here we go! Bring it New England winter. :) We are ready for you - snow blower and all. This week we've got a birthday, … [Read more...]

Winter Squash: Everything You Need To Know

One of my favorite things about the fall is the realization that though the tomatoes, fruits, and summer veggies might be coming to an end, there is a whole new harvest waiting for me. Walking into my first October market, I find myself feeling rejuvenated and ready for the beautiful colors that are … [Read more...]

Weekly Meal Plan: October 26th – November 1st

Ahhhh! I can't believe I just wrote November 1st. Seriously? It seems as though fall is slipping away. We had lingering days of summer and now, the chill is in the air. November, here we come! We have had some busy weeks getting fall chores done around the house and I am proud to say that (for … [Read more...]

Nutrient Dense Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies {Recipe}

The other day I came across a container of infant oatmeal cereal. Knowing all of the nutrients that are packed into that cannister, I couldn't bear to get rid of it. Sure, my youngest is 2 1/2, but we can all use some extra nutrients sometimes, especially when it comes to treats! I checked out … [Read more...]

Weekly Meal Plan: October 19 – 25th

Well, Mama H and my dad go home Sunday. :( It was a good visit and we will see them again in just a few weeks - but bittersweet none the less. My mom got so much work done in the house for me. She cleaned out the study like nobody's business. SO MUCH Help! We have a few days and then Ben's … [Read more...]

Shredded Brussels Sprouts with Roasted Vegetables and Bacon {Side Dish Recipe}

A few years ago my thoughts on brussels sprouts changed entirely. I had only ever had this green veggie roasted whole. Quite honestly the texture was what got me. I just couldn't get past the feeling of it to enjoy the taste. I am not sure if it had to do with the way the layers all cooked … [Read more...]

Weekly Meal Plan: October 5th – October 11th

I am sitting here on Sunday night writing up our meal plan. Ben already took care of Sunday's dinner with the kids. I got back late this evening from a girl's trip to New York City! We had a blast. I got invited by the "beach moms" (the group of lovely ladies that took me under their wing every week … [Read more...]

Cinnamon Apple Waffles {Recipe}

The other night the kids were dying for breakfast for dinner. I wasn't in the mood for our same old same old so I threw in homemade waffles. You see, we have always had a Cuisinart Waffle Maker. We got it for our wedding. It wasn't until we moved that I found it again. It was hidden away somewhere … [Read more...]

Weekly Meal Plan: September 28th – October 4th

Last week's meal plan was a TOTAL success. There was nothing special about it but the meals worked out perfectly. I think a lot of it was me being realistic about what I could do each day. Our days are more routine at this point and so certain days I can put more effort into dinner than others. I am … [Read more...]
