Harvest Pumpkin Lentil Chicken Chili

Posted by on Oct 27, 2016 in Blog Posts, Recipes

So pumpkin is not really what I think when I think Chili.  Just as it is not what I think when I think about enchiladas, but those turned out amazing and I am all about trying new things.  BAM! This was amazing.  Even Quin asked me to make it again because he loved it so much.  MOM FOR THE WIN! There are LOTS of veggies hidden in here so I feel like I am WINNING!!! This would be prefect for a cool fall day or a tailgate. Even a potluck item for those fall or halloween get togethers. It could easily be done in a crock pot BUT we...

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Posted by on Oct 14, 2016 in Blog Posts, Recipes

So I decided to try to make something pumpkin every week this month.  I LOVE cinnamon rolls.  So does my family.  We try to make them on Sundays at least once a month.  So this month…We made them pumpkin style.  I had a few hiccups and tweaked this recipe to make it a little bit more southern and NOT healthy at all.  LOL.  Balance is good and Cinnamon rolls are not meant to be made healthy.  So here is my spin on a pumpkin cinnamon roll.         One tip is to make sure you roll the dough up tight and Seal it.  Ours fell apart the...

Pumpkin, Bean & Chicken Enchiladas

Posted by on Oct 6, 2016 in Blog Posts, Recipes

Pumpkin is not what I think of when I think Enchiladas.  And to be completely honest… I turned my nose up at the idea when I first read the recipe.  My gut said… Clean it up and try something new.  Boy am I glad I did because these were absolutely amazing.  I made a large batch and invited friends over for dinner.  I didn’t tell them what was in the recipe until they approved of the dish.  LOL.  They loved it and asked for the recipe themselves.  So This month… Each week, I will be sharing a different pumpkin recipe that we made to keep things interesting.  It is...

Paid In Full! We paid off Val’s M3 in 1.5 Years

Posted by on Jul 11, 2016 in Blog Posts

A year and a half ago I surprised my husband for Christmas with a newer version of his dream car, a custom designed brand new 2015 BMW M3. Buying him a new car and paying cash was something that I had set on my vision board after we paid off our 20K in debt. I wanted our family to be more financially sound and debt free. More importantly…I wanted Val to OWN his car. The dealership convinced me that it would improve my credit score even more, after bankruptcy and having 7 years of being 100% financially dependent as a stay at home mom with 0 credit, to take...

You-Better-Work. Work-Work-it-girl. Are you singing it? Your welcome. But seriously, “If you are feeling over whelmed, or thinking you don’t have time to do certain things, think again. You can eliminate more things out of your day than you realize. Listen to an Audio book or work during your commute, wake up an hour earlier, slice your time on Facebook in half. Instead of surfing the web during your lunch hour use that time to dream up new ideas and research a new project. Give up Netflix for a night. We all have the same hours in a day. Its about how you choose to spend them that counts...
