Simple 3 Ingredient Cucumber Ranch Dip

Last week we went to Schlitterbahn with some of Patrick’s sisters and their kids. Jace loves it there and had even more fun with his cousins to play with. One of the many things I love about that place is you can bring in your own food. One of Patrick’s sisters made cucumber dip and Jace and I loved it! Cucumbers always make everything taste so crisp and fresh since they have so much water in it. I decided that[Read more]

Easy Homemade Salsa

I love making salsa and I could put it on everything. I just found out a few years ago how easy it is to make.

DIY Body Scrub

I LOVE body scrubs and I started using a DIY sugar body scrub on my legs before shaving while I was pregnant with Jace so I wouldn’t have to shave as often. It is amazing how smooth they feel after using a scrub. Recently I started adding a few more things to my scrub and it is even more amazing. Ingredients Sugar Used coffee grounds Lemon juice A little olive oil I never really measure anything and just pour and[Read more]

Easy Spaghetti Squash

We have been wanting to try eating healthier and I love making new things. He problem is Patrick is an extremely picky eater. He likes meat, potatoes, and fruit. He will only eat canned green beans and likes his corn mixed in with his mashed potatoes. Which can make eating healthier a little more difficult. I love veggies and salad but he hates them. Jace is also starting to become a little picky. He loves pasta. And I’m pretty sure[Read more]

Easy Pork Tenderloin

While there are many ways to make pork tenderloin the easiest has to be with using Italian dressing. The best thing is that you don’t need many ingredients. We made this for dinner last night.
