Guest post by Diana from Life on Olive Street Salads have not always appeared on our meal plan. My husband will eat any roasted vegetable I put in front of him - beets, kohlrabi, brussels sprouts - he’s digging in. But raw veggies have been a tougher sell. Through trial and a few errors, I've found some man-pleasing salads to get some greens into the whole family. ...and don't worry - these will work for most any of your picky veggie eaters. ;) I'm a no-recipe kind of girl, so I like the … [Read more...]

Maybe you're not like me. Maybe you don't use excuses. Maybe you don't fall into ruts. Maybe you don't get lazy. Maybe you don't forget to brush your teeth. Maybe you don't go half-naked to church. But I do. I've long since confessed to you guys that I don't consider myself a Crunchy Mom or a Whole Foods Blogger. I'm not even sure what I consider myself....except just a mom trying to do her best with what she has. But, see...I let myself fall into a trap. "Well, I'm not a crunchy mom - and … [Read more...]

I wanted to pop on here and share a quick recipe post with you guys. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know our lives the past three weeks have been CRAY-CRAY (yes, I said that) with VBS and swimming lessons. Something you should know about Hermit Introverts (#hermitintrovert) is that when they have to leave home every day, it makes them feel loopy and unable to form intelligent sentences. My standard answer these days to any question is, "Uhhhhhhhhhhhh?" So, I could write a funny … [Read more...]

Post by Contributing Author, Vanessa of Bible Beer and Babies I love bacon. The smell. The deliciousness. Even the sound of sizzling and splattering in the pan. I firmly believe there are two pains in this life worth enduring -- childbirth and bacon grease splatter. So, totally worth it. Bacon? It's on that will-kill-you list. Not because bacon is bad... shhhh, don't say that, it will hear you! But, because all those nitrates are such a huge no-no. (Whether they're actually as bad as … [Read more...]

We have this problem with cake around our house. It's not a problem eating it. Or enjoying it. The problem is, if there is cake in this house, my children cannot focus on anything else. Anything else. It's like their brain becomes taken over by the cake alien and all they can think about is CAKE! "Mama, is that cake still there?" "Mama, what's for breakfast? Cake?" "Did Daddy eat the rest of the cake?" Hey kids! Time to go outside and play in the sprinkler! "Okay, Mama! But when we're … [Read more...]
