I love to cook and plan meals. After seeing many ads for Blue Apron I was intrigued about the fresh ingredient and recipe delivery service but still not sold. I do my own menu planning (See my Weekly Menus Here) so I wasn’t sure how the service would fit into my planning. Finally one of my friends sold me on the idea of giving it a try and gave me a coupon for $30 Off my 1st Order. So I worked it into my menu plan and gave it a try. Here’s my Blue Apron Review from a busy mom’s perspective. Continue reading “Blue Apron Review- A Busy Mom’s Opinion”
One of the things I really enjoy about cooking is that you can literally take a few ingredients and make something out of nothing. Whisk together an egg, oil, flour & milk and you’ve got pancakes or even a cake. It’s almost like magic. I always feel like a super hero when I’m able to whip up a meal after my husband looks in the pantry and declares “There’s Nothing to Eat”.
It’s the end of the week which means our pantry and fridge are pretty bare. In hopes of inspiring you to save money and find something to eat at home I’m taking you inside my almost empty pantry & fridge and showing you some meal ideas you can make when “there’s nothing to eat.” Continue reading “Pantry Meals- Meal Ideas When “There’s Nothing to Eat””
*HEB compensated me to promote their Meal Simple meals. I only write about products and services I love and therefore all opinions are my own honest opinion.
I am so excited to give HEB’s Meal Simple a try. If you follow my Weekly Menu you know we’ve got quite the busy schedule with B’s baseball and soccer practices and games. You may have even read my post about our favorite On The Go Meals. Yes, I sometimes cook and pack up our dinner to eat on the way home from a practice or game.
My mom says I’m so much like my grandmother in that way 🙂 I do remember going on trips with my grandparents and Nanny would pack us sandwiches to eat on the way. I even remember one time when my grandparents came to watch me perform in college as a Rangerette and brought sandwiches for the ride home 🙂
Also, much like my grandparents we eat dinner at 6:00. So by the time a 6:00 baseball game ends I’m about ready to eat my arm off. That’s why I’ve started packing dinners for us to eat on the way home so we don’t reach for junk food. The Meal Simple meals from HEB are going to make eating healthy on the go that much easier.

Smoothies are a quick & easy way to get a healthy meal in. If you check out my Weekly Menu you will see that we have a smoothie made with Shakeology for breakfast every day during the week. It’s taken some time to get our smoothies just right. That’s why I’m sharing some tips to help you learn how to make the best smoothies and fix some of the problems you may be running into.
I really enjoy eating a variety of food so I’ve never been one of those people who cook up a bunch of the same food and eat it for every meal during the week. Blech. Also, if I think about food too much I don’t want to eat it. Strange, I know. This is how & why I meal prep. Continue reading “How & Why I Meal Prep”
