I'll just never be the girl who can give up pasta. There I said it, I've tried before and I've failed, and I decided a life without pasta is just no life for me. You feel me right? That's why we are friends after all... I mean I'm not saying we should be eating it every day of the week, but when the craving hits, you most definitely should indulge! One of my favorite comfort pastas is macaroni and cheese because it brings me back to my childhood, my kiddo loves it, and I mean it's cheese and pasta after all...a match made in heaven. My easy 3- ingredient macaroni and cheese is going to change your life in the homemade mac-n-cheese game because it is so easy to make and is super creamy and delicious!

In a blink of an eye, the summer has come and gone and it's time to start planning everything back to school! From buying school supplies, to planning out lunch boxes, and everything in between it can be a bit overwhelming to get that to-do list completed before the first day of school starts! As a mom, I get it...there aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done! That's why I am all about doing finding ways to save me time and energy, especially at this time of year! That's why I partnered with Kroger Marketplace to bring you an easy guide to checking off all of your items on your back to school supply list all in one stop! I'm also sharing one of my favorite easy lunch box recipes, my Spinach and Pepperoni Roll-Ups, that your kids are going to love in addition to those back to school essentials!
This week I managed to take my child to school on a day that he didn't in fact have school (I may have almost cried), on top of that Parks has woken up at 5am or somewhere in that time frame every single day leaving me feeling more tired than usual, and it seems like I can't get into my routine this week! Do you ever have weeks like that where you just feel off? (Please tell me I'm not alone here.) Thank goodness for easy recipes that save the day when my brain clearly isn't working so I don't have to put much effort into creating a delicious recipe that the whole family loves. My sumac roasted chickpea Caesar salad is just the kind of meal that nourishes your body, tastes delicious, and is easy peasy too!
School is officially back in for most schools here in Texas and that means busier schedules for us too! The importance of easy weeknight meals is more essential than ever right now and I want you to know that I get it, and I am here for you! I love having easy and healthy pasta recipes for just the kind of nights where your kids are starving and mom and dad are exhausted! My gluten free Italian sausage and pepper pasta is just the kind of dinner that you are going to want to add in to you weekly routine that is easy enough to cook even on the busiest of nights!
Over the weekend, we went to Louisiana to see our new niece who was just born! It was a whirlwind of a weekend and we were all pretty much wiped out last night when we got back home. After a good night's sleep, I am waking up feeling ready for the week! And it's a BUSY one! One of the ways I prep for a busy week is to make a batch of energy balls! My new favorite combination of flavors and ingredients is my chocolate coconut energy balls that taste delicious and are the perfect snack to get you through the afternoon slump!
I cannot believe August has arrived and back to school has already started! Where did the summer go? But let's be honest, summer actually isn't over yet is it? The heat is still sticking around and we still have a good month or two left of some of my favorite summer produce! Last week I made a random salad based upon what I had in the fridge, and omg guys...it was one of the best salads I have made in a long time! I knew that I was going to have to make it again, and that I needed to let you guys in on this amazing salad combination too! My grilled bbq chicken and peach salad is the quintessential summer salad and it needs to be on your dinner table asap while the gettin' is good!
