20 Perfect Brunch Drink Recipes

I love brunch. If it wasn’t for my busy schedule, I could make brunch the only meal I eat each day. Of course, when I am planning brunch {like the one I am working on for Easter}, one of the key elements is what to drink with our delicious food! I love a good cocktail but not everyone in my brunch party feels the same way. So, I went searching for 20 perfect brunch drink recipes that would make everyone happy!

Crockpot Paleo Chinese Pork

Each week, we usually end up with at least one crockpot meal on our menu. I’m gone during dinner time on both Tuesdays and Thursdays and I know that Mathlete isn’t going to want to put any effort into actually making a dinner when he gets home. So, I get up and prepare something that cooks all day and is ready when he is home. Since going paleo-ish, it has been a lot harder to find recipes we enjoy that also work in the crockpot. This crockpot paleo chinese pork that I made is definitely a winner though.

Basketball fever is in full effect! It is almost impossible to go somewhere and not hear people talking about the latest game or see it on TV. In our office, brackets are always the topic of the day. We love having friends over to watch sporting events to a few of the basketball games is another great reason for a sports related party in our basement! Of course, no party is complete without party food. My latest addition to the game day spread are hot and spicy cheese meatballs.

Paleo Lemon Poppyseed Waffles

I am so excited to be partnering with Williams-Sonoma to bring you this amazing idea for Mother’s Day. As always, while this post was compensated, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I know you are probably basking in the glow of Spring break {ours begins this week} and maybe thinking about the upcoming Easter holiday. I’m going to say two words to you that may bring  a little bit of stress into your life but don’t worry because I’m only talking about it to help you prepare. Yes, Mother’s Day is approaching and with it comes finding the perfect gift and way to celebrate your mom. Or, as a mom yourself, it means being able to pass along a gift list to your husband and kids so you can get rewarded for all the awesome mothering you do each and every day. Start your Mother’s Day with lemon poppyseed waffles, complete with homemade raspberry butter and raspberry syrup, and it will definitely be a day to remember.

Carrot Cake Dip

I can’t get over the fact that Easter is just over a week away! I am hosting Easter brunch at our house this year so I definitely need to get my butt in gear when it comes to planning a menu. At least I know I have a good resource for Easter recipes to turn to but I am still thinking of different dessert options. I don’t love the time it takes to bake so I am leaning towards something much easier like this three ingredient carrot cake dip.

I love spending time with my kids. My daughter has recently been really interested in helping with whatever craft or recipe I am working on and it is so much fun to have her by my side. We were recently given the chance to try out some of the PAAS products for coloring Easter eggs and she was so excited. I bought two and a half dozen eggs (!) and we spent an entire Saturday morning, along with Grandma, coloring them with various PAAS Easter products. Her favorite was the spring silhouette kit and she also had a great time with the monogram kit.

Paleo Sloppy Joes

Mathlete loves sloppy joes. Besides the one time I made them with turkey instead of beef, I don’t think I have ever gone wrong making sloppy joes for him. Of course, I am trying to stick to more paleo dishes so I needed to find a way to bridge the gap between Mathlete’s favorite and something I could eat. The result are these amazing paleo sloppy joes.

When did you know that you were finally all grown up?

It is a tough question to answer especially when we do not really ever want to grow up. 

I think, for me; even over getting married, starting my teaching career, or having children the moment I knew that I had grown up was when I had a knock-down-drag-out week of debate with our gas company over a major mishap with our bill. And it was a mishap on their end, I might add….but isn’t it always?

I know what you are thinking….that isn’t glamorous. at. all.

But I kept my cool. I researched my account. I didn’t yell at the very misguided business manager. I fought smart. And in the end {without getting into the messy details} I negotiated a very fair deal with them that settled the whole dispute. I was finally. all. grown. up. [Read more…]
