Have a Relaxing Weekend!

In Uncategorized by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I think I’m finally starting to realize that time really does go by so much faster the older we get. It seems like the weeks fly by these days and here we are, getting ready for another weekend to begin. Sometimes when life moves so fast, I find myself so caught up in the craziness that I forget to really soak up the blessings that are right around me. Last weekend I snapped a photo of two of my favorite … Read More

Healthier Mexican Layer Dip

In Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry9 Comments

Last Sunday Joey and I held off on dinner in order to enjoy a few Super Bowl snacks. But since my least favorite feeling is that stuffed, over-full feeling you get after endless amounts of snacking, I decided to keep our snacks on the healthier side and stick to eating just one thing, instead of trying a bunch of different dips and spreads. Of course, variety was still important to me, so I made the most colorful, varied dip I … Read More

Shopping and Saving

In by Madison Mayberry10 Comments

Sometimes, as was the case today, we end a photo shoot for work with plenty of leftover food. Since we take photos of many different recipes, often only using a small portion of a package for each recipe, it’s inevitable that there will be extras. Since I’m always interested in finding ways to cut back on our grocery spending from week-to-week, and because I hate seeing food go to waste, I take advantage of bringing home some of the healthy … Read More

In Uncategorized by Madison Mayberry10 Comments

Hello there Espresso and Cream readers! My name is Sarah, I am wife to Abel, mom to 3 month old Simeon and I blog at The Crosby Show. I was encouraged when I read Madison’s “No Fat Talk” resolution, because let’s face it, in the past year my body has taken quite a beating in the form of pregnancy, labor, and delivery – more on that in a minute. My story begins in Jr. High. I was at a swim … Read More

Toasted Coconut Granola

Can I interest anyone in a little homemade granola? What about if I tell you it’s packed with good things like toasted coconut, slivered almonds, walnuts and raisins and coated with sweet and earthy real molasses? Lately, I’ve been obsessed with one cookbook in particular. That is, Heidi Swanson’s Super Natural Everyday. It’s a beautiful book, packed with inspiring, mouthwatering recipes that pull me in and don’t let me go. Sure, plenty of the recipes call for ingredients that I … Read More

Do You Blog?

{Blogging back in the summer, when I was tan. Sigh.} Lately I’ve really been trying to corral and comment on the blogs of those of you who read Espresso and Cream. It seems like every day I’m discovering a new, amazing and tasty blog but then either forget to add it to my Google Reader or forget the URL of the site I was on.  Later this month I am hoping to add a new page to Espresso and Cream … Read More

Creamy Chia Oatmeal

In by Madison Mayberry20 Comments

Good morning, and happy Wednesday! I’m offering up my sincerest apologies for this photo, but certainly not apologizing for the recipe. It’s killer good and a huge hit with my husband, who begged me to put the recipe up for you guys. Hey, if Joey is raving about oatmeal, it’s most certainly got something going on, right? Over the past few weeks, my love for oatmeal has heated back up. My favorite thing about oats has always been the fact … Read More
