Power Quick Pot Easy Apple Dumplings

I’ve mentioned before on the blog that I was raised by my grandmother. A strong, Southern woman who grew up on a tobacco farm. She worked hard and retired after many years in finance and office management. Even after raising two kids (my dad and aunt) she still found it in her to help raise four grandchildren and at the spry age of 70 is still helping me raise my daughter.

Many of my earliest memories revolve around her and us in the kitchen. We’ve made more desserts together than I can count. Most of her recipes come from hand written index cards or old church cookbooks. When I was little, I used to love to pull them out of the closet and look through them for hours. In fact, I’ve shared one of her recipes before!

The latest trend in healthy living is adding as much nutrition to our diets as possible, but with minimal fuss — because really, who has time for complicated recipes, right? But for someone with finicky diet standards this can be easier said than done. My sister-in-law introduced me to smoothie bowls from a local establishment and I instantly became obsessed with this quick and easy food option! I love this delicious healthy snack.

I am partial to certain textures and so for me, eating a lot of healthy foods is just out of the question. Smoothie bowls are an option that allows me to customize to include foods with textures that I enjoy AND it almost feels as though I’m treating myself to a sweet dessert. Here is a recipe to get you started but you can change this up in so many different ways to fit your own personal needs.

My go-to recipe is as follows but feel free to alter things to fit the consistency and flavor you like or to address individual nutritional needs…. [read more]

Creating A Unique Date Night In

Since being married to my husband, I’ve learned many important lessons, but there is one that seems to be one of the most valuable.

Always make time for each other.

It’s been written about in countless magazine articles and relationship books, urging parents to find time in their busy schedules to “date” each other. However, this can be easier said than done when you have a family. There are also times when we’ve both worked a long work week and didn’t feel like leaving the house. Our “date night in” usually translated into “Netflix and Pajamas” night. It was definitely time to get more creative…. [read more]

I got my love of cooking from my mom. She always let me and my siblings help in the kitchen. It was so much fun learning everything from the basics to her tricks for making a meal come together. As I got older, we would share recipes and pour over cookbooks to find new dishes to create.
