Weekly Food Prep 101: what I learned this weekend

The arrival of spring has me determined to step up my clean eating routine. My goal:  Eat clean 90% of the time. The two biggest challenges I struggle with: Having healthy (and good) snacks and meals ready to go when running out the door in the morning, and Knowing what we’re having that evening before the sun goes down. And if it’s prepped, even better. As […]

How did my cleanse go? The good and the bad…

It needs to be made ahead of time which works for me… I’m always thankful right before a crowd arrives that I was forced to prepare ahead […]

Party Pizzas: a favorite recipe

Here’s a favorite family recipe that we usually have on Christmas night – along with She-Crab soup. {Both recipes are from my Aunt Trecie: her She-Crab is THE BEST but I better not include that one without her permission!} These little pizzas need to be served right when they leave the oven – but they […]
