Sunday Morning Pancakes

I love pancakes… Growing up, we always had pancakes on the weekends and just the smell of them in the frying pan brings me back to my childhood kitchen, listening to music, talking and laughing with my family. Looking back, I loved those moments and want to create those memories for my kiddos, so Sunday…

Meal Prep 101 – Start Small

We all have heard our trainers and those really fit ladies tout the glories of meal prepping, right?  When I thought about meal prepping before I got into it, I don’t know about you all, but I would get so overwhelmed and anxious!  I would think “What do I even do first?” “I don’t have…
