I used to enjoy spending time in the kitchen, trying new recipes, and creating fabulous dinners. These days, my goal is to get a homemade dinner on the table in the shortest amount of time possible, and ideally, during that elusive window when all three kids are home at the same time.

I’ve been trying to collect pretty and interesting serving pieces so that at

I feel like I’m always on the go between PT appointments, my son’s band practices, and all the errands associated with back-to-school season, and I haven’t carved out the time to make the healthy meals that I need to stay on track. Oh, and did I mention that there’s a Chick-Fil-A right NEXT DOOR to
