Top 5 Baby Products I Couldn’t Live Without (and one I swore I’d never buy, but did)

Preparing for a new baby is stressful, especially when you start the baby registry process because the plethora of baby products on the market today is a bit ridiculous. Marketing execs for baby product manufacturers must have a fun job. Those ladies and gents get paid to creatively promote some of the most absurd and… Continue reading Top 5 Baby Products I Couldn’t Live Without (and one I swore I’d never buy, but did)


All the labor/postpartum/baby stuff no one told me

I’m not going to begin to tell you I’m a baby expert, because after only two months of having a little one, I’m definitely not. However, I do have a few bits of wisdom that I’ve learned so far, that I wish people had told me before I had Torin. Had I known these things,… Continue reading All the labor/postpartum/baby stuff no one told me

We’ve only got a few days left (hopefully) before he is going to make his grand entrance, and… Continue reading Greek Turkey Burgers

Mom and dad and my sister and her husband, all came to my house to cook Thanksgiving dinner, and… Continue reading Overnight French Toast Casserole


The Best Spinach Artichoke Dip 

Yesterday, Trev and I hosted our annual Halloween party, and even though things were much more relaxed this year, the food was still amazing. We had homemade jalapeño poppers, potato skins, a lovely cheeseboard, sausage balls, and a few other snacks, but my spinach artichoke dip was definitely the belle of the ball. Everyone asked… Continue reading The Best Spinach Artichoke Dip
