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

Creamy, Healthy Baked Mac and Cheese

Happy Friday! We are waiting for a snow storm that’s supposed to hit our neck of the woods sometime today, long-overdue since we’ve hardly had any snow and very mild weather all winter thus far, and I’m over here baking pasta dishes and prepping for a weekend spent indoors watching football. I’ve been planning/dreaming of making this dish for over a month now – ever since I made a similar dish with butternut squash from Food & Wine for a … Read More

Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Chances are some of you out there made some type of resolution related to health, am I right? And while I’m certainly NOT one to make resolutions related to weight loss these days, I think health goals like having more energy, eating less sugar, eating more veggies, and moving your body more are all worthwhile and noble goals to have for the year to come. With that in mind, I also know that I love to bake, my girls love … Read More
