I’ve been loving me some oatmeal lately. The mornings have been so cold that it’s been nice to have a warm breakfast. Sometimes I make my own little oatmeal packets from this recipe here. Sometimes I buy the packaged kind and mix with strawberries and almonds. But then I discovered this wonderful recipe for crockpot,…

This recipe is one of my favorites lately! The night I cooked it, it was just the right time for some comfort food and it really hit the spot. Not to mention, it let me use my cast iron skillet, which I’ve been trying to use more often. I’m turning into one of those moms…

Recipe Time! Watermelon Salad

Recipe Time: Shrimp Tostadas

It’s Summer, and with that means I eat an unhealthy and inordinate amount of avocados and tomatoes. So, any excuse to use these two in a recipe, I’m down! This was a super easy recipe, and one that could be switched around for lots of different uses: tacos, enchiladas, salad, etc. And the website gives…
