Spice Up Your Summer Side Dishes With Stella Cheese!

Do you eat dinner as a family? We do our best to every night and keep it pretty simple during the week. However, we try to switch things up on the occasional Sunday, and this weekend we had a delicious meal courtesy of my mama!

She had a taste for smothered pork chops and cabbage and we were all ok with that! I wanted to contribute with a quick and easy side, and thanks to Stella® Organic Fresh Mozzarella we had some creamy and extra cheesy mashed potatoes that were the perfect compliment to our meal!

A Summertime Spin on Your Favorite Grilled Cheese Sandwich!

This post is sponsored by Black Creek but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

In just 3 days school will be out for the summer and I can’t wait!! No more drop-off and pick-up lines, sleeping in (ha! who am I kidding, lol), and plenty of festivities & quality time with the family. 

As I think ahead to the first big event, Memorial Day, the menu is definitely on my mind. 

My hubby will be the grill master, but I might be able to show him a thing or two when I make some White Cheddar BBQ Bacon Grilled Cheese sandwiches for the occasion!

A ‘Sun In My Belly’ Birthday!

There’s been radio silence around here. Silence. But after an unplanned hiatus I’m back and better than ever!

Well, maybe not better, lol, but I am a year older. I turned 36 last week!!

Dress c/o Pink Blush

It’s still sinking in, but I believe every age should be celebrated. Birthdays are special and the gift of life should not be taken for granted. So when Sun In My Belly offered to host some friends and I in exchange for an honest review, I jumped at the opportunity!

A Healthy Food Option For Your Picky Eater

Every pregnancy is different. Every baby is different. Every child is different. 

These are things we hear as moms and expecting moms, and while true, it doesn’t necessarily sink in until it’s experienced. At least for me it didn’t until my second precious daughter came along.

My dear Lily has done her best to make a distinction from her big sister since day 1! 

Her sister was born before her due date, Lily was born a day late. Her sister was very active during the day but slept like a champ at night, whereas Lily was incredibly mellow during the day and sleep was definitely NOT in her vocabulary. Her sister has always been pretty good about eating and trying a mix of fruits and vegetables, and that Lily isn’t having it!! HA! 

She will eat fruit (not all of them) and not touch a single vegetable, and (like her father I’m told) boycott most everything that’s placed in front of her during mealtime. It’s frustrating to say the least, but this mama has options with the help of Happy Baby’s Clearly Crafted™ Pouches!
