Artichoke and Quinoa Stuffed Mushrooms

I just finished week #3 as a Mushroom Ambassador for Mamavation’s 30-Day Mushroom Challenge and boy was it a tough one. As I mentioned in an earlier post, it started off grand with a successful trip to the gym. Mondays aren’t usually our family’s favorite day of the week, but my Monday was awesome. And the week quickly […]

Chile-Lime Roasted Artichokes

A few weeks ago my husband and I celebrated our 12th year anniversary. Sometimes, with the day-to-day craziness that goes on in our house with our three kids, we feel like coworkers – handling mini-crisis after crisis, passing a crying child to the other, going through the motions of dinner, homework, brush, floss, bedtime.

Munchies To Ring In The New Year

Well, we survived Christmas this year. I didn’t think we would, with all the house projects going on. Although we had the tree up and some decorations, it didn’t quite feel like Christmas. We had tons of rain in San Diego and hubby was busy fixing up my kitchen and never hung up any lights […]
