Hummus Edamame Veggie Wrap


I think one of the biggest misconceptions about eating healthy is that you have to start an intense diet, or totally change the way you eat (like go vegetarian or vegan...etc.). But for most people, the smallest changes in the way your prepare meals can make a huge difference! And even more than that, having some new ideas of healthy meals to make can really help motivate you to mix things up--like this Strawberry Quinoa Salad or Tomato, Basil, Avocado Pasta Salad, for example.

Strawberry Quinoa Salad

Now that my morning sickness has subsided a bit I'm finally starting to crave something other than breads and pastas! Thank goodness!  I had to laugh a few weeks ago when my doctor checked my iron levels and told me they were a little low. When you're living off of saltine crackers and ice cubes, and the thought of any sort of vegetable makes you want to gag, you can't expect your iron levels to be great :-).  Morning sickness is the worst!

Gender Reveal Cupcakes

I'm so excited to officially announce we are expecting BABY NUMBER TWO!!  We didn't find out the gender with our first, (which was the funnest surprise ever!!) but this time around we decided we really wanted to know whether Jackson would have a little brother or sister! They will be just 21 months apart, and although I know I'll have my hands full,  I can't wait to see them become best little friends! :-)

25+ Leftover Ham Recipes

Leftovers after big family holidays were always a must for me. What's Thanksgiving dinner without a ton of great leftovers to last you for days? I feel the same way about Easter! I love having tons of leftover hard-boiled eggs in my fridge and I love having tons of leftover ham! There are a million meals you can make with leftover ham, and I rounded up a few that had me drooling!

Broccoli, Ham and Cheese Baked Potato

There are so many fun variations you can do with a baked potato, and this is one of my favorites! There's hardly any prep to it, it's cheap, it fills you up, and tastes delicious! Something about the combination of broccoli, ham and cheese is delicious, right? My mouth is watering.

Ham Asparagus Rolls

My mom made these Ham Asparagus Rolls often growing up, usually as part of our Sunday dinner. They are so delicious! I love asparagus in all forms but wrapped in ham it's absolutely fantastic!
We never ate it with a cheese sauce, since the boys in my family don't like cheese, and I really can say I like these served with or without the sauce!
