Hi! We are over half way through January, a time for those New Years resolutions to be in full swing, along with getting back to work, school, and a more regular routine after the holiday season. Funnn!
The holiday season flew by, and all the food that surrounded me flew right into my mouth, sooo yeah…. Did that happen to any of you? We talked a little bit about that the other day so no need to rehash that. 🤐
I’m back on track so I’m cooking all the healthy things, and since we are still in the middle of winter I find myself gravitating toward more of the “comfort” type foods.

BEHOLD. A Kale salad that is seriously incredible. Just. Perfect! ⚡️
I’m not sure if anyone else get here but I seem to hit the same point every summer – salad everyday. I don’t even realize it until one day I reflect on all my frequent visits to the grocery store for MORE vegetables. I can barely keep up (but it’s not just me, my kids are good little veggie eaters too 🙂

With it being summer, I wanted to make some fudgesicles.

But, for some reason fudgesicles popped into my mind, and oh did I make some good ones!
For me, there’s nothing like making a healthier, more simple version of something that you would otherwise find processed and packaged up at the grocery store.

Hey there! Things have been busy – but so great. I just got back from a few days away with my little guys and we had THE BEST time!
We hopped on the ferry, which, for my 4 & 6 year old was a big adventure on its own. We cruised on over to Victoria where we spent time with friends I used to work with at the College. Ahhh, I love reunions like that so much. Though times have changed since there are now 7 kids under the age of 7, so this adds a new kind of crazy. Needless to say there was no time for any deep/focused/heart-to-heart conversations, but it was still so great. Continue reading “Tomato & Bacon Balsamic Salad”
