Chicken Puffs

This is one of Munchie’s favorite meals. I love it because it’s a cinch to make and there’s very little clean up.  Bonus: Let the kiddos help you throw this together!

My Meal Planner | Carrie Elle

If you’ve been here awhile, you probably know that I love myself a paper calendar/planner.  I like to write with a pen or pencil.  I don’t keep track of appointments on my iPhone.  That’s not for lack of trying either.

Vitacost Haul & Loud Dog Cameo | Sept. 2, 2016

It’s been awhile!  I’ve been posting videos now and then, but not sharing them here on the blog.  So some videos will be older than the posts, just a heads up! I needed a few things from one of my favorite stores (Vitacost–it’s an online store so enjoy shopping from your couch!) and thought I’d…

Easy Chocolate Bundt Cake

Let’s just address something right off the bat.  This cake calls for a boxed mix.  There.  Done. 😉 Whenever I serve this cake or tote it to a BBQ at a friend’s house, I get a request for the recipe.  It has loads of chocolate flavor and is so moist thanks to the sour cream.

Pumpkin Sandwich Cookies (with video)

Thanksgiving is next week!  I can’t believe it and yet I say that every year.  But I welcome the holidays and the spirit that fills the season so no complaints here.

Weekly Menu Plan {9-21-15} |Sprouts, Ralphs & Costco Grocery Haul

I’m posting my haul and menu plan a bit late, but I had time to stroll through Costco Thursday (and it wasn’t crowded…ahhhh) so I wanted to add that haul in here.   I meant to stop by Trader Joe’s specifically for pumpkin products, but didn’t make it there this week. I’ll head over soon because…

The Dish: What’s for Dinner | Sept 14-20, 2015

Hi all!  Here’s what we had for dinner last week.  I switched up things a bit from my menu plan, but c’est la vie, right? 

Weekly Menu Plan {9-14-15} |Trader Joe’s & Sprouts Grocery Haul

I quickly whipped up a menu plan without putting much thought into it because a cold has zapped me of energy.  Still, I’m pleased because we’ll be eating through more pantry items so that soon I can refresh my stock for fall and winter.  Oooh, comfort food, here I come!

The Dish: What’s for Dinner | Sept 7-13, 2015

Now that I’m back to sharing my weekly meal plans, I thought I’d film our dinners for you. 

Berry Kefir Smoothie |A Healthy Favorite

I make this smoothie at least once a week for my family.  There are so many health benefits to the probiotic-rich kefir so I feel good about handing a glass to my husband as he rushes out the door in the morning or making it for Munchie’s afternoon snack.
