Prepped Lunches!

   Mornings can get crazy with Rad’s school & work schedule, and my working schedule. (plus we both are NOT morning people, so we tend to sleep in a little too late) I have very  little time to make a breakfast and lunch in the mornings. I quickly learned I need to have things set aside and ready to go, for a Routine lunch-making system… or else, we don’t get a lunch

Mother Daughter Cooking: Frozen Meals

Okay so my mom is a meal prep genius. When Radley and I got married she made us some pre-prepped frozen meals… and they may have saved us from starving a time or two. She honestly has THE best storage room with a couple of extra freezers… and she freezes a lot of different types of food. I wanted to become more like her.. So a one Sunday we had a frozen

12 Months of Dates: A Gift Your Husband Will Love

Rad kept saying that for Christmas he just wanted more time with me. So I decided why not give him the gift of time together. So I put together a basket of Pre-Planned Dates for 2017. There are 12 dates for each of the 12 months. First I wrapped up some Dates (the fruit) for him to open up. I’m cheesy and so of course I had to be a
