Hi friends! How was your weekend? I am officially swamped getting the house ready to be packed up, trying to get some blogging work accomplished so that I can take off a few weeks this summer and trying to find a new home (and schools) which is proving to be more difficult than I’d like! Eek!…

Black Bean and Corn Salad {Vegan, Gluten Free}

I’m not very good about working ahead of schedule. I never have been. In college and grad school, I always did my best the day before an assignment was due. Not much has changed! But I have learned that having 4 kids alone can throw you some curves balls, so it’s probably a good idea…

Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Casserole

Friday thoughts….sometimes I feel like just giving up. Giving up the blog, giving up trying to work from home, giving up being a stay-at-home mom. Ooooh, I just read that back and realize it sounds serious and depressing, but don’t call for help because I don’t mean it like that. I just go through that…

Plant-Based Protein Swaps

I need protein at every meal, which I learned the hard way. Yes, there was a time (pre-nutrition degree) where I would just eat a plain “fat free” bagel for breakfast or some other starch and wonder why I was so hungry an hour later. Then I learned about nutrition and it all made sense….
