When your schedule is crazy and you don’t have time to cook regularly, batch cooking is a great option. Sure, I love my Instant Pot for fast meals but it’s hard to beat assembling food that is already cooked. When I batch cook, I cook a few foods that I…

This week's meal plan with a focus on the basics: potatoes, beans, grains and veggies.

When I don’t have a lot of time to think about my meal plan I try to focus on the basics. For me, that means potatoes, beans, rice, veggies and fruit. After a great, on-the-go weekend I want easy meals that are filling and hearty. This meal plan will…

September 12, 2016 Meal Plan

It may be September but it doesn’t quite feel like fall in Arizona. Thankfully, I work inside with the air conditioner. These 100 degree days always seem to last a little too long. I’m ready for a meal plan of soups and casseroles but the thermometer says…

Take a look at what we are eating this week!

I took my two boys, 1 and 3 to ABC Dentistry for Children and we all had a great experience. The 3 year old has asked to go back every day since the appointment. We saw Dr. Harsha Santiago and he was incredible with my children. I always dreaded taking them to the dentist but now that I found this office we will all look forward to it. Even my 1 year old was very relaxed and responded well to Dr. Harsha. The office was very clean and kid friendly. My oldest was also very excited about the large aquarium. He now wants, "a big bath with fish in it too." I can't imagine a better experience for all of us.
