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.

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.

3 Easy Breakfast Ideas


Breakfasts on weekday mornings are crazy around here. I am not typically here for the morning rush because I’ve already been at work for at least 30 minutes before anyone in my house gets out of bed. BUT, I know the hectic pace that our house takes on a weekday morning so I like to have easy breakfast ideas ready to make mornings much easier for the people that do have to feed my kids before school!

We had our first warm day this past weekend and it was glorious. While still jacket weather because of a light breeze, it was a great reminder that Spring and Summer are on their way and we have lots of sunshine to look forward to. Of course, thoughts of summer got me in the mood for some ice cream. I couldn’t convince Mathlete to go out for ice cream because “it is still March” so I decided to break out my recipe for the easiest no churn ice cream ever!

Mini Shepherd’s Pie Bites

Who here loves shepherd’s pie? It isn’t one of those dishes that ranks up there in the favorite foods list like pizza or pasta but it is still so delicious. I love it during winter months when it is cold outside and you want something filling. I was dreaming up ideas for a St. Patrick’s Day party recently and decided that mini shepherd’s pie bites would make the perfect, one-bite treat.
