Quick & Easy Ice Cream Cake #Recipe

My boys love ice cream. Nothing is better then relaxing on a hot day, hanging on the deck enjoying some ice cram and giggles with them. Since my hubby was a young child his mom ALWAYS got him a ice cream cake for his birthday. Being the awesome wife I am I kept that tradition up. But if we are honest, they are EXPENSIVE! So when I seen this simple recipe to make our own I got a little excited. The best part? The kids could totally help make it too! Quick & Easy Ice Cream Cake Last year  ...

Healthy Snacks for Game Day

Warmer weather is finally making its appearance where I am from. This means all the fun Summer sports are starting. I love driving by the parks and seeing the kids playing. Some of the best life lessons I learned were on a sports field. While sports are not for everyone it is definitely something I recommend trying. This year both my boys are playing baseball. I grew up on a diamond and am so excited to share this with my boys. But with game time, comes snack time. With two boys I needed  ...

Whole30 Paleo Cabbage Rolls

Growing up one of the things I remember most is the yummy meal my mom made. There was something comforting about the delish meals she created. I loved sitting together as a family to eat and to this day I also make sure dinner is with my boys. I have been experimenting with grain-free dishes so when I saw this delicious meal option from This West Coast Mommy I knew I had to share with you all. Whole30 Paleo Cabbage Rolls In last week’s meal plan I mentioned that I wanted to try cabbage  ...

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Tenders

My boys love bacon. I don’t know if it is because growing up I enjoyed it but it was not something I would ask for. Hubby also loves bacon so I am going to say they get it from him. Now a days there are so many recipes that add this yummy addition that I could be cooking something new everyday. We really love our Loaded Cauliflower recipe and because Bacon is in it the boys will at least eat a couple bites. But I get bored eating the same thing all the time. So when fun and  ...

Berry Mascarpone Layer Cake #Recipe

Easter was this past week-end which meant family dinners. The best part about family dinners besides seeing your family? The sweet desserts! My aunt has gotten back into doing what she loves, baking and we are all pretty blessed because she is so damn good at it. A couple weeks before Easter she had seen this Facebook video for a Berry Mascarpone Layer Cake and decided she would make it herself. The creation itself was a slice of heaven, literally! Each layer was light and fluffy with a  ...

Tasty 30 Minute Dinner Rolls

I still remember the day my mom brought home a bread maker. We all sat around the machine waiting for our first batch of homemade bread to come out. It felt like FOREVER! I think it was a 2-3 hour wait. But I can still close my eyes and smell the amazing aroma of fresh, baked bread. Have you ever had fresh, warm bread right after it comes out of the oven? Nothing better or comforting. But like I mentioned the time it takes makes it not something I do often. What if I told you that you could  ...

Mini Blueberry Cheesecakes #Recipe

Spring is here and that means I get in the mood for all things fruity! But if we are honest my all time favourite treat is cheesecake. There is just something about the sweet creamy desert paired with a delectable crust that takes me to my happy place. Hubby thinks I am crazy but I have been known to eat cheesecake for breakfast. My reasoning is simple, it is cheese and fruit, that sounds healthy to me hehe. I can not stop sharing Mom VS the Boys recipes because well they are all fabulous!  ...

Easy Easter Bunny Nests #Recipe

Easter is such a fun time in our home. I will admit we have jumped on the commercialism bandwagon the last couple years.  The boys got gifts and chocolate from not only the “Easter Bunny” but family members too. Sometimes, I just can not help myself and end up going overboard. I have decided to focus more what Easter actually is, then overloading my boys with stuff they don’t need. The Easter Bunny will still come, and they will still get some treats, just not a ton.  ...

Mini Eggs have got to be one of my all time favourite treats. If there is a bag in the house I just cant stop until I eat them all. Last year a friend made some delicious Mini Egg Cookies and I thought I would share because HELLO did I mention Mini Eggs? Mini Egg Cookies Easter is in a couple days! Trying to decide what to bring to various get togethers and dinners can be a challenge. I just happen to be scrolling Facebook and came across some super cute cookies that a friend was making or  ...
