Stovetop Chicken & Broccoli Casserole

For me, pregnancy has sparked cravings for all kinds of comfort foods!  My latest desire was for chicken and broccoli casserole.  Luckily, I found an easy recipe for a healthier version of this classic dish…  and everything could be put together in a large skillet on the stove top! From start to finish, I think […]

Healthy Pasta Bolognese

My energy and love to cook has started to return.  So, this week I felt like trying out a new recipe:  Quick Pasta Bolognese from the Eating Well website. The flavor in the sauce was absolutely FANTASTIC!  Justyn and I really loved this dish…  a “keeper” as we like to call these exceptional recipes. The recipe […]

Sending Some Love

This last week has really been a rough one for so many people I love.  My brother, John, called me last Wednesday to tell me the terrible news that his fiance’s dad had passed away suddenly from a heart-attack.  He was so young, only 52, and although I never got the chance to meet him, […]

The picture above is from last Monday… but as of today, I am officially 13 weeks into my pregnancy!  Yay, almost through the rough and worrisome 1st trimester. I most definitely lost […]

Friday Night Out – Old Town Scottsdale

With Aaryn visiting this weekend, we thought it would be a great opportunity for us to have a mini Auburn reunion and meet up with the Farris girls for a night out!  So, last night we headed down to Old Town Scottsdale for dinner and drinks. After enjoying dinner on the patio at RA Sushi, […]

Justyn’s search for the BEST Citrus Juicer…

Maybe, just maybe, the search is finally over (fingers crossed). My husband loves LOVES to make his own at-home margaritas!  His recipe changes from season to season, but the one ingredient that always stays the same is fresh squeezed lime juice… and lots of it! We’ve been through 3 or 4 hand-press juicers in the […]

Family Visitors

As you can probably tell from my previous post, Justyn’s parents paid us a visit last week/weekend.  We all had a great time together and we always enjoy their company! Here is a picture of Jim & Connie from Saturday.  We spent a little time shopping in the morning, then we stopped at one of […]

Waste Management Phoenix Open

I made it to my very 1st PGA golf tournament and it happened to be quite the production!  Just down the street from us here in Scottsdale, the Phoenix Open was the #1 place to be this past weekend.  I still can’t believe just how many people show up for this event.  I’d say there […]
