BBQ Pork Quesadillas

I am all about easy, breezy in the kitchen. If there’s one thing easier than dinner with the crockpot, it’s probably dinner with quesadillas!  I love how these lovely folded things have lately surfaced into mainstream with the help of food trucks and the internet!  The internet is exactly where I got the idea of […]

Skillet Rosemary Chicken

Original recipe via Foodnetwork.com I can’t attest to how kid-friendly this dish is, since I made it especially for the two adults in the house.  This was so easy to make; I was able to juggle steaming the carpet, prepping the food, cooking it, and picking up the kids from abuelo’s house at the same time.

Plan Your Meals and Save Time

I get it.  Not everyone wants to slave in the kitchen.  I don’t either.  As much as I love to cook, I can’t afford to shell out too much time preparing meals for my family.  The way our lifestyle goes, I really only make dinner.  Not bad, I know.  Breakfast for me typically consists of […]

I never really pictured mother nature as a killer; albeit she really is, come to think of it.  From typhoons to earthquakes and volcanic […]

Home-bound Adventures

This post was going in a completely different direction before I decided to take a turn.  I think it was the tequila sunrise. We all know the cliche: life is an adventure.  It’s supposed to be exciting, a roller coaster ride, a thrill.  Is this in general terms?  Is every single day supposed to feel […]

5 Habits for a More Productive Day

I don’t follow a daily work schedule.  My schedule basically runs all day, everyday.  I’m a stay-at-home mom and not just from 9-5; I’m a mom, literally, for 24/7.  It’s not employment, but if I got paid for the amount of hours I seem to be working each day, I’d have quite a bit of […]

Rainy Summer Days

It’s one of those days when it feels like a Norah Jones album playing on repeat next to a whiskey short.  Monday came so soon.  Not waiting to see if plans were drawn or set.  Not waiting for the rain to run away with the weekend.  Monday came exhorting a reprise.  “Just another rainy day,” […]
