Baked Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Doughnuts #CookingwithGerber

This is a sponsored recipe project to share the goodness of Nestle Gerber® Cereal from The Women Bloggers, Kendal King Group, #SoapboxInfluence and @SoapboxKKG. All opinions and deliciousness are my own. I’m gonna share you a baking secret of mine, come closer! *whispers* When a recipe calls for mashed bananas, apples, or any other fruit? […]

Spinach Balls (Great for Football & Entertaining!)

(I am a compensated Great Day Farms ambassador.) I pretty much love spinach everything. E-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g, yo! I love it in my smoothies, I love it as a dip, quiche, lasagna, and more! When a neighbor-friend of mine came over one day with spinach balls and dill dip, I nearly jumped out of my skin, squealing […]

Spicy Pepper Omelet Made with Cuisinart Ceramica Cookware from Kohls #MakeYourMove

I’ve partnered with Kohl’s for the #MakeYourMove campaign.  I love eggs. I love breakfast, brunch, and even eating breakfast for dinner. I’m always coming up with new ways to eat eggs, because they’re a wonderful source of protein, they’re lean, they’re mean, and they can be used in SO many different ways. Starting off your […]

Most Heavenly, Easiest Raspberry Pie Recipe EVER!

I am a Goldrich Eggs ambassador. I’m a busy mom, and crazy happens (hence the name of this site). I walk to get the kids at school everyday, and I bring my wallet, place it in the stroller, so that I can show I.D. in case one of the kids has a substitute. On this […]

Cinnamon Roll Pancake Bake

(I am a compensated Great Day Farms and Goodrich Farms ambassador.) My family is a bit cinnamon obsessed. Cinnamon rolls are “up there” on our list of favorite breakfast items to have, as are pancakes and waffles. My kids ADORE it when I sprinkle a little cinnamon into their pancake or waffle batter, but THIS? This […]

My Favorite Breakfast Wrap Recipe using Over Easy or Sunny Side Up Eggs

(I am a compensated Great Day Farms ambassador.) One morning, I found myself wandering down the streets in NC half-starving. I can’t recall where I was going so early in the morning, but it was shortly after I had dropped the kids to school, and it wasn’t until I passed a Sonic restaurant that I noticed my […]

Bacon Egg and Cheese Breakfast Ring

(I am a compensated Great Day Farms ambassador.) Oh my gosh, you guys! Who doesn’t want a bright, sunshiny shape like this to greet you in the morning! Hello, gorgeous. Fancy “meating” you here. (Get it? Meat? Ha!) I know you guys are simply going to love the easy-ness of this recipe, just like my other […]

Bacon Egg and Cheese Hash Brown Nests

(I am a compensated Great Day Farms ambassador.) Bacon, egg, and cheese – my favorite breakfast combo. There’s something amazing about putting those three ingredients together that really makes my morning. While I say “bacon” on this site, and mean turkey bacon (I like how less salty it is, and how it crisps up perfectly), […]

Sausage Egg and Cheese Crescents

(I am a compensated Great Day Farms ambassador.) Easy breakfasts that can be made in bulk make me insanely happy. Do you know how easy it is to bulk cook breakfasts once a week for your family, store the remainder in the fridge and freezer, and know your kids can eat healthy, nutritious meals all […]

Cheesy Baked Egg Toast

(I am a compensated Great Day Farms ambassador.) Eggs and toast are such a perfect breakfast staple. They’re our default, our ‘go-to’ breakfast, especially if you’re like me and love a good runny egg with a little buttered toast to mop it up with. Mmm! But I wasn’t always a runny egg fan. In fact, I […]

S’mores Stuffed French Toast

It looked like it was going to be a good day to work and be outside. My husband had bought wood to build some shelves for a special upcoming project for the blog, and some stain for the privacy fence. The kids and I were excited about spending the day in the sunshine until they finished staining part of […]

Breakfast Omelet Roll

(I am a compensated Great Day Farms ambassador.) It’s no secret how much I love eggs. I always loved eggs as a child, my mom making me a steamy pile of scrambled egg yumminess for breakfast that I’d devour in 2.4 seconds flat before school or on the weekends. But my true love of eggs […]

Braided Breakfast Bake

(I am a compensated Great Day Farms ambassador.) There’s something so special about preparing and baking a casserole-type breakfast to your family, something so hearty and happy. I can’t put it into words, I just know deep down in my momma bones that it fills me with joy to cut into it and serve it […]

Easy Sausage Egg Cheese Biscuit Sandwich

(I am a compensated Great Day Farms ambassador.) My son had a sleepover the other night. I always love making big breakfasts when the kids have sleepovers, but it wasn’t until I reached into our deep freezer did I realize.. no hash browns, no bacon (the bulk box was in there, just empty), and no […]

Sausage Cheese Biscuits Heart-Shaped

(I am a compensated Great Day Farms ambassador.) We have a home and garden store nearby our house that’s relocating to a new building further away (boo!) so they marked their entire store down 30% or more (yay!). I came across this adorable mini heart-shaped cake pop pan and I simply HAD TO HAVE IT […]

Happiness is ______ {Week Fifteen} #happinessis

2013 is going to be a fantastic year – a year where we collectively focus on the happy and the joy in our lives. What makes you happy? What is it that you do that you can’t get enough of? What makes your soul shine, your eyes beam, and your insides sparkle? Happiness is so […]

Make Ahead Breakfast Wraps in Bulk

Have you ever had one of those Sonic breakfast burrito wraps before? The ones with diced jalapeno, potato, and minced sausage? I enjoyed the flavors it offered, but not the price tag for convenience, especially since I know I can make that myself, and make it healthier. Being the budgeter that I am, I’d rather […]

Low-Calorie Spinach Quiche

In my quest to lose the baby weight, I’ve done my best to get as creative as I can with meals, to make them delicious AND healthy. My newest love is using egg whites instead of our whole organic eggs. I haven’t found organic egg whites that are ready-to-pour yet in any of our stores, […]

Homemade Bacon Egg and Cheese Biscuit Sandwiches

Hellooooo, hot stuff. I love making breakfast easier for my (big) family. I’d love to buy out of convenience, and get some of those boxed breakfast microwave-and-done kind-of things from the store, but my conscience gets the better of me. Not only can I make it myself, and make it way better, I can do […]

Cream Cheese Omelet Lovin’

Once upon a time, in college, I had a friend in my band of friends I’d regularly hang out with. We would go out on the weekends, and do the ever-popular “diner-run” just after our night escapades, and without fail, he’d always order a Cream Cheese Omelet. Now friends, I’m a cream cheese-a-holic. I love […]

Breakfast Pie – Quick and Easy Breakfast

Mornings totally suck sometimes. And when you have six kids (four of which in school), when alarms don’t go off, or kids are extra cranky, things aren’t going smoothly, and time is not on your side, breakfast has to be as fast as possible. Unfortunately, sometimes that means compromising having a good breakfast for convenience. […]

Heart-Shaped Egg Sandwich Lovin’

“Mommy, I want a heawt-shape egg sammich, pwease.” Of course, baby. Anything for you.  Heart-shaped love on a plate. Served. Never miss a thing! Subscribe today for all kinds of crazy parenting fun!

Easy Egg Sandwich Lovin’

With a family as big as ours, we can go through a dozen eggs in one meal. But I’m an advocate for hot breakfasts as much as possible, and while eggs are super-easy to prepare, it’s a double-edged sword, because of the fact we have a big family, because it can cost us a lot […]

Healthier Quiche Lorraine – Quiche a la Lisa :)

I went to a lovely Mother Daughter Brunch at church on Saturday, and they served a delectable Broccoli and Sausage Quiche that I was lucky enough to bring home. No one else but hubby would eat it (I guess Broccoli for breakfast wasn’t enticing?), so I decided to make my own. A variance on a […]
