we have chicks!

Pretty sure John thinks I'm crazy, but I've convinced him to build me a chicken coop. I mean, I think I'm crazy. I'm a little terrified of birds so wanting chickens is an interesting thing for me. Backyard chickens are everywhere in Atlanta, I'm not sure I'd ever heard of it until moving here. People... Continue Reading →

strawberry season is here

Strawberry season is here and I can't be more excited. I've been craving strawberry shortcake with all this beautiful weather. I finally dragged all my kids out to the strawberry patch to pick some beautiful berries. We had blast and picked nearly 12lbs worth @ Whitley Farms. As soon as we got home we rinsed...

blueberry breakfast bars

Third time is a charm with these bad boys. First batch was too dry, second batch too bland. Even with the first two batches not being perfect they were still gobbled up in 2 days. I might have to go on a breakfast bar baking bender and make a stockpile for my freezer the way... Continue Reading →

“snow” day snickerdoodles

The city of Atlanta deemed today a snow day and cancelled all the schools. Now, my kids aren't in school so this doesn't change our day one bit. Aside from watching the hilarity of the city preparing for snow that never comes. Current temp is 42, with rain ending in an hour. This isn't happening... Continue Reading →

holy granola

Granola is one of those things we buy every week at the store that looks so easy to make. In fact I knew it was easy as my mom makes her own and always brings me some when she visits. And yet.....I still didn't want to mess with it. Now my kids eat a TON... Continue Reading →

veggie muffins

peanut butter granola bars

These are delicious and a daily snack for my kiddos. They freaking LOVE them and it helps keep the grocery bills down to not have to buy granola bars all the time. It makes a good amount so I tend to cut them and put them in the freezer. PEANUT BUTTER GRANOLA BARS 2 1/2... Continue Reading →

pan fried fish sticks

Finding new food that everyone will eat is tough, combined with feeding and cooking for everyone, EVERY day 3x a day + snacks.....exhausting. I also really try to introduce them to new foods so they don't get caught in a rut and only like 3 things - although I've been told that can happen anyway.... Continue Reading →
