My BlogHerFood 2016 #blogherfood16 Experience

Two weeks ago, I got to mark something off my bucket-list. I got to attend a food blogger conference! I got to attend BlogherFood16 in Austin, Texas. It also happened to be our anniversary weekend. We’ve been married 8 years. WHOA! Yea…it was a pretty epic weekend for us. We made some fast friends whileRead more

My Life Is Over

My life is over. My beautiful wife, Leslie,  joined a CrossFit gym a little over a year ago, but that’s not why my life is over. I’m super happy, excited for, and proud of her. She has accomplished so many things in the past year that she never dreamed possible before. And her squats areRead more

Chicken Zoodle Soup

Soup weather is upon us! I love chicken noodle soup but since I’m trying not to have pasta too often AND I had a zucchini that needed to be used, I decided to make Chicken ZOODLE Soup! First, I have to tell you about this little gadget that I picked up at Target. It wasRead more

Gluten-Free Garden/Picnic Brunch Themed Baby Shower

I have really taken to throwing themed parties for my girlfriends. I love gathering all the fun and beautiful elements and throwing them together to make something really special for someone really special to me. This time, I didn’t do it alone. My friend Sarah and I threw this baby shower together.  Stephanie has beenRead more

Gluten Free Breakfast Casserole

Good gluten-free recipes are hard to come by. I’ve tried so many different ones and sometimes they are good and sometimes they are not. As a matter of fact, I’ve tried so many different recipes for breakfast casseroles that are full of gluten that I decided maybe I could make a few substitutions and possiblyRead more

Paleo Chicken Salad

Today is Day 5 of being off of the 21 Day Superhero Challenge and I’m still feeling so good!  One of my favorite things about the challenge is the meal plans that Emily Schromm sends us. In the last three that I’ve done, I have tried at least one recipe from each one. I reallyRead more

Paleo Ranch Dressing

Making my own dressing for my salads has really been fun! I get to be creative with the spices I add and that makes everyone in my house happy- especially the Mister. We have this ongoing argument about some of the things I make us for meals. He says some things are not REAL foodRead more

Super Simple Paleo Mexi-Mayo

Since I’ve been doing the 21 Day Superhero Challenge, I have stepped up my game on reading the ingredients on common items that I buy. One of those things is mayonnaise, the other is ranch dressing. When I make homemade mayonnaise, I like to add LIME to my recipe. Most homemade mayo recipes call forRead more

How Do YOU Dip?

With football season here and get togethers around the corner to watch that pigskin fly across the field, I know that I am gonna have my fair share of chips and dips to be around. Over the past couple of years, I’ve learned that if I’m gonna eat healthy as often as possible, that meansRead more

Brussels & Bacon

Let me share this fond memory about brussel sprouts from childhood: I was 5 years old. My mom loved brussel sprouts with lemon on them. She made them for dinner and I remember the terrible taste it left in my mouth and I spit it out on my plate. I got the “mom eyes” and sheRead more
