Lenzie had a little lamb

I have been craving lamb for at least two months now.  There was one particular afternoon I was craving it something awful, but failed to satisfy my taste for it when I couldn’t find it on sale anywhere. I’ve never cooked lamb myself before, and at $20/lb., I was unwilling to risk ruining a perfect cut of meat… Continue reading Lenzie had a little lamb


Comfort Foods

Food comforts the soul. And lots of other things, too! A friend/co-worker of Graysons’s broke his humerus last week…not very humerus, to say the least.  It can be difficult for the whole family if one of them is injured.  Grayson and I decided to make them a comfort food meal. While I supplied a meal, Grayson… Continue reading Comfort Foods


Baked Blueberry Oatmeal

I ❤ blueberries! I’ve been on a kick lately of preparing “make-ahead” breakfasts so I can grab and go easily in the morning.  Mornings are rushed enough as it is without trying to make a complicated breakfast on top of it!  Some days I just want to sleep as long as I possibly can!  Those of you… Continue reading Baked Blueberry Oatmeal

I’ve been hearing all this talk about cauliflower crust pizza and I’m just gonna’ say that I originally thought it was ridiculous. For real…have some carbs for sobbing out loud! At least that is what I used to think. Again, my BFF roped me into trying another out-of-my-comfort-zone recipe.  Before you freak out like I did,… Continue reading You won’t miss the crust!

It was so easy AND you may even be lucky enough to have all the… Continue reading Sometimes you just want a cheeseburger

Sweet! Potatoes :)

I scream, you scream, we all scream for………..CARBS! I can’t be the only one, can I? I know I’m not.  Seriously, another reason why I’m loving the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle change I’m making is that carbs are NOT the enemy! You heard me right fellow foodies!  Carbs are totally ok! No more of the… Continue reading Sweet! Potatoes 🙂


Chicken Zoodle Soup

The past few days have been super cold for southeastern NC.  On top of that, I haven’t felt the best in the world and neither has Grayson.  Everyone at work has been sick so it was only a matter of time that I caught the bug and passed it on to him. I wanted chicken… Continue reading Chicken Zoodle Soup
