Baked Chicken Taquitos

A lot has been happening in our household this summer and I hope to explain in more depth at a later date. With all this craziness during the week, it means I need meal ideas that take only a fraction of my time to make and photograph for the family. This past week we...

Virgin Blueberry Mojito

This summer I’ve had my fair share of popsicles, tubs of ice cream, frappuccinos and tons of ginger ale, but the thing I’ve been wanting or craving the most is a nice fruity drink. Of course, it wouldn’t hurt if it had alcohol in it but being 23 weeks pregnant it’s not going to...
