A great recipe for Double Chocolate Chunk Walnut Cookies from the amazing Skinnytaste cookbook with a sneaky healthy ingredient that you would never guess was in the mix. I’ve done some crazy, unconventional things in my baking, like adding black beans to fudgy, kid-friendly cookies, but using avocados in place of butter is totally new to me! As crazy as it sounds, it works! For these chewy Double Chocolate Chunk Walnut Cookies made with chunks…

Hi, guys! I’m always looking for quick and easy recipes that taste as delicious as they sound! I recently came across Skinnytaste’s Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf, which immediately caught my attention. I mean, doesn’t that just sound amazing? Honestly, the recipe looked pretty fancy too. Did I really have time for that on a weeknight? It seemed like a lot of steps, and I knew I could simplify it. Since I had all the ingredients, I did…

Hi, friends! Happy Easter Sunday to you! Here’s this week’s edition of What We Ate For Dinner. We actually made a new recipe from Skinnytaste two different times because we just loved it so much. Both Mal and Quinn went nuts over it and our friends did too. It is definitely a winning recipe! Sunday: Crock Pot Sesame Honey Chicken THIS. RECIPE. Omigosh, it tastes incredible and it is so easy to make it. We loved…

Good morning, friends! I heard a rumor you guys enjoy my What I’m Loving Lately posts, so I’m planning to make them more of a regular feature on CNC. That said, here’s another edition of What I’m Loving Lately! Little Grazers – Totally love this site! It has so many great ideas and recipes for feeding your little one! Stitch Fix – I know I don’t write about Stitch Fix all that often, but I’m…

Good morning! Here are some eats from yesterday”¦ and then I have some fun “food crimes” to talk about! Breakfast: Oatmeal + a fried egg + iced coffee with eggnog. Lunch: Chunked chicken breast with roasted potatoes, steamed spinach, and buffalo sauce. Snack: Marylou’s almond cookie coffee + Greek yogurt and granola. Dinner: Cheeseburger Casserole (it was wicked good) + wine. So, Quinn and I had a rough day yesterday. He’s teething and has a nasty cold, so…

Hi, friends! How’s your Monday going so far? Quinn is a napping machine today (who is this kid? I think Mimi has magical powers), so I had some extra time to create a pin-able workout, order our holiday cards, start dinner, and write this blog post. Hooray for naps! So, this workout”¦ I am still sore from it, and I did it LAST Wednesday at CrossFit. Holy cow. It totally smoked my arms. The second set of push-ups, which…

Q and I were wide awake at the crack of dawn this morning, so instead of going back to bed, I meal planned for the week. I know. I’m a freak. I should have went back to bed, but I had an itch to get everything organized for the week and just couldn’t sleep. I have a feeling I will be paying for this decision later! Haha! Anyway, here’s what I’m making this week! Kale…

Hi, friends! Happy weekend! We’re still on a health eating kick over here, so I created a delicious and nutritious meal plan for the week. Just wanted to share what I have planned!  Turkey burgers on the grill with guacamole and roasted summer squash Leftover lasagna with caramelized broccoli   Roasted chicken with bell peppers and onions Tuna, Chickpea and Red Pepper Salad   Fiery Jalapeno Burgers with Kale, Broccoli, and Feta Sauté   Veggie…

Gooooood morning! I hope your week is off to a fabulous start! I never got my act together with meal planning over the weekend, so I didn’t go grocery shopping until yesterday afternoon. I’m typically on top of meal planning, but I just wasn’t in the mood for it on Sunday morning. Nothing sounded appealing and the usual meals I make sounded soooo boring, so I pulled up PaleOMG for some inspiration. PaleOMG is my…
