Semi-Homemade: Naked Red Velvet Cake

Last month we celebrated Brando’s first birthday with a farm-to-table foodie themed birthday party. Brando has ONE major interest right now and that is food, so the theme was super appropriate and really simple to pull off at my Grandmother’s property where they used to raise cattle in Plant City. I thought a naked red velvet layered cake would make the perfect dessert for this rustic party, and it turned out super delicious and was REALLY easy to put together. […]

Birthday Chip Frapp

This post was sponsored in part by Social Spotters on behalf of Shamrock Farms, all opinions are my own.  With Brando’s 1st birthday party quickly approaching I wanted to pick a theme that matched what he’s in love with. After a lot of deliberation we decided to have a “This Little Piggy” foodie themed birthday. So basically, we skip out on all the kitschy party decor, and go straight to what matters most: good food. While Brando won’t be partaking in […]

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Macy’s, all opinions expressed are my own. #AmericanIcons  Pregnancy Cravings are no joke. Before I got pregnant with Cash, I just assumed “cravings” were all in a pregnant woman’s head and she could use them as an excuse to eat whatever whenever she wanted. Now I know that the craving is so strong it actually feels like a need. It’s hard to separate mentally what you can live without vs. what […]

Cold-Brewed Coffee At Home

This family runs on coffee. While I am pregnant and only consume about one cup a day, my husband will clear the rest of the pot before 10am, and sometimes we’ll enjoy a cup for dessert as well. While piping hot cup of coffee is something I can enjoy when it’s a little chillier, hot beverages in general are difficult for me to enjoy when it’s 87 degrees outside. While I have tried brewing coffee and pouring it over ice […]

Egg Hunt Cupcakes

This is literally the FIRST time I’m using box cake mix in a recipe on my blog! While I love making things from scratch and putting the extra love and effort into things, sometimes I just want to make something because it’s fun, and not worry about the nutritional aspect of it! I mean, from scratch or not, this IS a cupcake full of sugar, it’s 100% okay to skip a step here and there sometimes for the sake of […]

7 Minute Organic Peanut Butter Eggs

I’m not always about pre-made, not-100% from scratch food. It’s typically something I tend to stay away from. However, around the holidays, there are so many different things to do that revolve around bringing a dish. It can be so hard to create aesthetically appealing food for these events, (you know you want everyone to compliment you on how good it looks) that is healthy and delicious and easy to make in a pinch! A great recipe I’ve come up […]

A Cowboy Sandwich

I’ve never used a slow-cooker before, and certainly never cooked a cow butt before, but we got a ton of free rump from family and I wanted to put it to good use and try something new. Now I typically make everything from scratch, but this was pretty amazing regardless. All I did was toast Texas toast in the oven, put the beef in the slow-cooker with a huge bottle of Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce for 24 hours on […]

While we were there, along with amazing deals on raw kale, spring greens, spinach, and a massive display of every cheese you can think of (12 different kinds of […]
