Cashew Chicken Fingers

99% of the time when I cook, my goal (besides making really delicious food) is to be quick and no fuss. I also like making things that my kids will enjoy because life is just easier that way.

Most kids I know love chicken fingers, and I think most adults like (love😍) them too. My husband and I sometimes joke that we had kids just so we could order chicken fingers at restaurants and not feel like we are children. Now we can eat half of their order and know one will know it was basically for us 🤗  Read more

Get it done, quick.

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a lovely long weekend! Mine was fairly routine, busy but it felt productive. I got a few workouts in, took the kids to the park so they could play all their sports and burn off some energy, Luke got a kite for his birthday so I promised him we would go fly the thing.  I also worked on the blog and on Saturday night I motivated myself to go through and purged/organize my kitchen cupboards. My social life is onnnnn fire 🙈lol Read more

So you tell me, who wouldn’t burn whatever’s on the barbie?! 😖 there is nothing more annoying than a burger that looks like a hockey puck🙄 Read more

Training your CORE

I’ll be honest, the extent of my core/abs training (aside from bracing with my core when I’m performing any exercise) is adding an abs exercise here and there between sets of another exercise.  I almost always pair exercises together because I like to keep myself moving throughout my workouts, so adding a few core exercises is a simple and efficient way to train another muscle group in the same time frame.
