Korean Beef Bowls

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I’m always looking for new and easy ways to keep the meals that we make at dinnertime interesting. This is one of the newer meals we’ve been enjoying at our house, first inspired by this recipe from Damn Delicious and then tweaked slightly and adapted by me. That said, the recipe is so easy that once you make it the first time you won’t really need a recipe the next time. It’s simple, easy, and was extremely family-friendly. I was … Read More

Desk Lunch // Chicken Pesto Pasta Salad

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

If you’re signed up to receive my weekly meal-planning and behind-the-scenes newsletter, then chances are you’ve already heard that I’m on a mission to make Joe’s lunches a little healthier, with more variety and interest each week. I realized that I had been phoning in her lunches for a long time now that life has been busy with littles, and when I don’t prepare lunches in advance, he really doesn’t get the most well-rounded lunches. So each Sunday, I prep … Read More

Espresso and Cream Behind the Scenes // The Newsletter!

In Family, Fashion, Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

At the beginning of the year I had a LONG bucket list of items that I wanted to complete. Half way (over half way) through the year I’m afraid to say that I have a lot of work left to do in order to check those items off said list, but I’m working on it. One of the things that is LONG overdue for the blog is creating an e-newsletter to share behind-the-scenes content for you all. Basically, if you’re … Read More

It was awesome, so I’m sharing it with you today! Thanks for supporting the brands that support Espresso and Cream!  Summer has gone so quickly this year! Anyone else? I think it’s due in large part to the fact that we … Read More

Boosting My Immunity + ACV Slushy

In Family, Food & Recipes by Madison Mayberry1 Comment

It’s not shock to most of you that since having kids I’ve been sick a LOT. Recurrent sinus issues, cold after cold, I even had the stomach flu three times one winter when Ainsley was little – probably because my gut health was compromised thanks to all the antibiotics I had to take to help my sinus infections. I had sinus surgery back in the fall of last year, and while it did help to some degree, just a few … Read More

Protein Peanut Butter Toast

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Good morning and happy Tuesday, friends! I shared this photo on my Instagram this week but also wanted to take a minute and put down the “recipe” if you will so others can recreate what is now my favorite new breakfast. It may sound a little strange, but trust me when I say that this combination is super yummy, satisfying and packed with protein and healthy carbs. I make a lot of “strange” things like this for breakfast, healthy snacks, … Read More

Healthy Chocolate-Peanut Butter Truffles

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I’m the queen of healthy snacks that taste a little indulgent without totally busting your clean eating plan. I’ll be the first to admit that I just have to have a little something sweet at the end of the night but rarely does that “something sweet” include truly indulgent choices. I’ve found over the years that the less sugar I consume, the less I can handle refined sugars. So I try to steer clear of them as much as possible. … Read More

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Energy Bites

In Family, Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

This recipe isn’t going to break the internet with it’s creativity or for being something you haven’t seen before, but I frequently talk about and post about my energy bites, and when I was looking for an up to date recipe on Espresso & Cream, I realized that I didn’t have one posted! In the past I’ve made these with dates and nut butter as the binder, but truth be told we just don’t have dates on hand most of … Read More

The Espresso and Cream Weekly Favorites

In Family, Fashion, Food & Recipes by Madison Mayberry1 Comment

Lately, I’ve been craving a space and reason to share some of the products, podcasts, recipes, and more that I’ve been loving lately. I was initially going to use this idea as content for an e-newsletter, but after thinking about how cluttered inboxes are these days, it seemed a better fit to make this into a weekly blog post. Each week, I’ll be sharing my favorite thing I’ve bought, listened to, used on my skin, recipe and book and/or article … Read More

Easy, Perfectly-Cooked Salmon

In Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Fish is one of the easiest foods to prepare and one of the foods that I think intimidate a LOT of people. Perhaps it’s because I live in the Midwest and finding good seafood isn’t always easy (hint: I buy mine at Costco!) or because people didn’t grow up eating it, but whatever the reason, there is no need to avoid making this protein. Salmon is one of our family’s favorite proteins. We usually buy the frozen salmon filets from … Read More
