Baked crab wontons

A couple weeks ago I talked my husband into letting me take a cruise with 50 other fabulous bloggers for a photography conference.  I’d like to say this is “work” but being on a cruise with camera in hand is more like my happy place.  The best part is Royal Caribbean is our sponsor,...

Butterless chocolate chip cookies

Today I am talking about desserts…. cookies in fact. They are absolutely my favorite dessert especially the regular chocolate chip cookies.  It’s got to be soft, chewy and have a lot of melted chocolate inside and outside of the cookie.  Yep, that is my type of dessert. I’ve always leaned towards the more simple...

Slow cooker Jalapeño popper pulled chicken

Tuesday started off perfect with a playdate to the park and then afterwards we ventured towards a local burger joint.  Olivia took a two hour nap, which rarely ever happens anymore.  It’s like she woke up and my day went to sh*t. My husband and I are in the process of potentially building a...

Vanilla Ice Coffee Frappe

I glance over at my iPhone to see that it says 2 o’clock in the freaking morning. My daughter has just climbed out of her bed and is banging on the door for her own rescue. All I want to do is close my eyes and pretend that we didn’t just convert her crib...

quinoa crusted tuna

I’m not a cleaner.  I like things clean but I’m not one to scrub the entire house weekly.  In fact my best friend in the house is an IRobot roomba and it runs every other day.  The dirt accumulates so fast in our house that I gave up on having clean floors on a...
