Summer is in full force. The weather is hot and humid and your toddler seems to need constant attention and entertainment. We live in a small town in Texas and the community of people are so sweet. I love how the town comes together with a band at the town’s center stage on Saturday nights, […]

Graduating from Everything

Summer is upon us so let the fun begin. But before the summer break begins we’ve all been super swamped with “End of the Year” school parties. I have never seen more jumpy houses and hotdogs in my life. My daughter goes to two daycares since mom and dad both work from home. While having […]

Chicken Sausage Potato & Spinach Soup

Moms can have the challenging job of making two meals for dinner. One, for you, your spouse, and older kids, and the other meal for your baby or toddler. I’m a big believer in trying to make one meal that everyone can enjoy. And it’s quiet simple. I recently made a hearty soup during a […]

Banana Beet Puree

I will come out and be honest with you. I am not a fan of beets. My great grandmother and father loved to eat them. Even my husband enjoys them in a salad. I personally think they taste too earthy. Actually, let me take that back, they taste like what soil smells like when you’re […]

Carrot Hummus

Hummus is one of my favorite snacks. It’s not just really tasty but also super healthy and packed full of protein. My toddler loves grabbing raw carrots and dipping them in hummus. So, I figured making hummus with carrots would be a nice change of pace for both of us. This recipe is perfect for […]
