At the start of every year, I find myself making a renewed commitment to simplify my life. This year I’ve been decluttering our home like never before, and I love my newly tidied space! Isn’t it funny how organizing and simplifying one area of your life causes you to want to organize and simplify other areas as well? This has definitely been true for me this year. I’ve lost 5 pounds since the holidays, and I truly believe I owe that in
It’s a new year, and many of us want to drop a few pounds. It’s time to get back into our skinny jeans! Salad is my go-to lunch during the summer months because it’s a great way to eat well without consuming too many calories, plus you can pack a lot of nutrition into a little salad! But in the wintertime, I often avoid salads because I want something warm to eat. Well, not anymore! I’m teaming up with
I’ve been enjoying having more of a fashion focus here on the blog, but a girl’s still gotta eat, so I was thrilled when Udi’s reached out and invited me to partner with them and share two new gluten-free recipes. This is the first, and I’ll have another one for you in a few weeks. My food contributor, Colleen, came up with this delectable Beef Tenderloin Sandwich with Horseradish Cream.

This one-pot chicken and rice dish is creamy and comforting! Plus, one pot. YAY! If you use a rotisserie chicken, you can have this dish ready in 20 minutes. I usually prefer to cook my own, but if you’re in a rush, picking up a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store can
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. Who can relate? I know this is just a season in life that will soon be a distant memory, and one day I’ll miss the busyness and have time to
Last month I shared a fun and healthy breakfast recipe using Friendship Dairies’ protein-rich cottage cheese and their Superfood Generator to come up with a sweet and crunchy cottage cheese breakfast bowl. This month I’m excited to team up with Friendship Dairies again to bring you an amazing party dip for easy entertaining. You guys. Feast your eyes on this! Are you drooling yet? This Mediterranean-inspired party dip is delicious, and with cottage cheese as the base, it’s healthy too. All you need is
I confess that I don’t do much entertaining these days. When I do, it’s usually a casual get-together with friends. I will set out a bottle of wine, place some cheese and crackers on a tray, and call it a day. Maybe when the kids are older and out of the house, I’ll have more time to host fancier gatherings, but for now, I enjoy the casual comfort of these informal get-togethers. I’ve been trying to collect pretty and interesting serving pieces so that at
