Chicken Burrito Bowl Bake

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

To say our family has been in a dinner rut would be an understatement. Anyone else feel a little “blah” about meal time lately? With “back to school” fast approaching, I’m feeling the pull to refresh our family dinner round-up. But since Joe is also coaching football and busier than ever, dinner is best in our house if it’s easy to pull together and can be prepared in advance.

Daily Harvest Review + DIY Daily Harvest Mint Cacao Smoothie

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I have had my eye on Daily Harvest and their yummy-looking smoothies + bowls + bites for a while. If you’re not familiar with Daily Harvest, you can read all about it here, but the basic premise is that it’s a high-quality food delivery service. You fill a box (either monthly or weekly or in a frequency that suits you) and it comes on dry ice with your selections. The Good: -The quality of the ingredients used in their products … Read More

Chunky Peanut Butter Granola

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Over the last year I learned that one of Joe’s favorite breakfasts is yogurt with granola and fresh berries. I don’t know when I came to this realization – I believe it was on vacation when he mentioned one time while eating yogurt, berries and granola – that he could eat that breakfast every day. And suddenly I realized that I hardly ever had that very combination on hand at our house. Since then, I’ve been working on sampling and … Read More

Making an Income as a Blogger

In Family, Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Back when I first started blogging nearly a decade ago (what?!) I had no idea that blogging was something you could make a living doing. I saw a few other bloggers at the time who blogging as a career, but the entire concept was a mystery to me. It wasn’t until a few years later that I started to dream about possibly making blogging something I could do as a career, or at least part of a career, if I … Read More

Our Family’s All-Time Favorite Biscuits

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Hi friends! I can’t believe that I don’t have this recipe up on the blog. It’s our family’s absolute favorite biscuit recipe and the recipe that my mom made for me growing up, too. I realized I do have a version of this recipe up on the site from years ago, but for some reason I made them with whole wheat flour rather than all purpose flour, a decision I don’t really understand since these biscuits really should just be … Read More

Easy Beef + Bean Enchiladas

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

We might as well just call these “pregnancy enchiladas” since this seems to be one of the few foods that regularly sounds good to me. Even 16+ weeks into this pregnancy I’m still feeling pretty sick to my stomach most days and enchiladas are one of the few foods that I can count on to sit well with me. While I tend to prefer enchiladas from a taste perspective with regular-old white soft taco shells, for the sake of health … Read More

Healthy Chocolate-Peanut Butter Truffles

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Friends! Do you ever find yourself craving something sweet at the end of the day but aren’t quite sure what you want/you want something sweet that won’t totally derail your healthy eating efforts? I hope it’s not just me who suffers from this issue. Actually, over time and years of healthy eating, most nights I don’t want something super sugary or indulgent because my body prefers lower-sugar sweet “treats” now that I consume less sugar day-to-day. Usually I reach for … Read More

Roasted Tomato Soup

In Food & Recipes by Madison Mayberry1 Comment

I’m super thankful that although I’ve felt horrible this pregnancy (worse than the girls!) I haven’t really had any food aversions like I did with both Ainsley and Collins. Food doesn’t really sound good or satisfy, but it’s pretty universal across all food groups. So, with that said, I’ve still been eating plenty of vegetables and relatively healthy options. About a month ago Joe said tomato soup and grilled cheese sounded good, and I have to agree that it’s sounded … Read More

Easy Roasted Brat & Potato Sheet Pan Meal

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I’m enjoying a few days of sunshine and work meetings in California and so excited to be here, but I always have THE hardest time leaving my sweet crew. Even if it’s just for a couple days – and they usually go by quickly – I still just miss the heck out of them and love being with them. When I leave, I do try to do at least a little meal prep to make the days go by smoothly … Read More
