Harvest Blend Freezer Burritos

In Family, Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Let me preface this recipe by saying that Joe doesn’t think this is a “legit” breakfast burrito because it doesn’t have egg included, but for someone like myself I’m more than happy to bypass the eggs and fill this burrito with things like meat and roasted veggies. Of course the options are endless when it comes to what you could put inside. Think of this as a starting point for your breakfast burrito experiments – but the sky’s the limit … Read More

Crispy Pita Pizzas

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

One of the things I think I’m best at in the kitchen is finding ways to satisfy my craving for something less healthy for a delicious, healthier alternative. Does that mean I don’t eat pizza on the regular? Absolutely not! I eat pizza on the regular. But for someone who could eat pizza daily, I find it’s sometimes helpful to have a swap like this in the back pocket. In fact, I think I may prefer this version most days! … Read More

Slow Cooker Spaghetti and Meatballs (e-book preview)

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I’ve been embarrassed to admit that it’s taken me SO MUCH LONGER than I had hope to put together my Easy Weeknight Meals e-book. It’s not that the task at hand was all that challenging – I’ve developed hundreds upon hundreds of recipes over the year for the blog and in my former line of work as a recipe developer and food editor. But when I set out to put together this e-book last summer, it seemed that every time … Read More

New Baby Essentials

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

With baby on the way and the countdown on, I’ve been thinking about what products are the must-have items in my world. This fourth time around I’ve found myself focused only on the items I can’t live without rather than a lot of fluffy “extras.” While this list will probably vary from mom to mom, these are the products I would consider the best of the best when welcoming a new little one into your family. As a rule of … Read More

Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

In Family, Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Truth be told, I’m a little worried with the way winter is going that if I don’t publish this slow cooker soup recipe now – in February – it may get too warm soon to post it and have it be seasonally appropriate. In all seriousness, we have had such a mild Iowa winter with temps coming up to the mid 50’s later this week, that I hardly know what to do with myself. Joe and I joke ever now … Read More

Healthy Peanut Butter Cup Bites

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I’m always seeking healthy ways to satisfy my sweet tooth. Not that I don’t allow myself to indulge in real-deal peanut butter cups or desserts on the regular (I do!) but if something can taste good while also being good for me, then that is always my preference. As someone who doesn’t eat a lot of sugary foods, I’ve found that I have lost my taste for super sugary things. It’s funny how that works, isn’t it? Plus, peanut butter … Read More

In Family, Pregnancy by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Happy New Year, friends! Last week when I asked you all for Ask Me Anything questions on Instagram, many of you requested an updated supplement line-up. And with the new year here, it seemed like the perfect time to re-visit what I’ve been taking. These supplements have been staples for quite a while now (some dating back give or more years) and some are new-ish over the last year. As a reminder, I’m not a doctor or medical professional, so … Read More

Hi, friends! I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving with friends and family. We enjoyed our first Thanksgiving at the lake house and I can’t wait to share all about it soon.

Quick & Easy Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Maybe it’s a little strange to be posting this the week of Thanksgiving, but hear me out…. After cooking a big meal (or contributing to a big Thanksgiving meal) what meal could be better than something warm and filling, yet super easy and a little lighter on your stomach than Chicken Noodle Soup? Bonus: If you have leftover Turkey, you could easily adapt this recipe to be a Turkey Noodle Soup and use your leftover Thanksgiving turkey instead of chicken. … Read More

Dazzle Dry Review!

In Family, Fashion by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Let’s start with a bit of background on my complicated nail polish history…. Most people probably know me as someone who does not care for nail polish on my fingernails – my husband would probably even tell you that! He has seen me paint my nails 10,000 times, only to remove the polish two minutes later. Why? Well, the answer is twofold. First, I like things to look neat and put together. Which means the second my nails smudge it … Read More
