Yay! You're here >> me waiving my hand--hi!

I'm super excited to share that The Taco Tuesday Cookbook will be shipping out in the next week or two so the time to get it is now.

My family and I ate tacos every week, sometimes two to three times per week, for nearly two years -so the recipes in the book are the very BEST ones! More info below.

This summer has been a lot about cooking up easy recipes and snacks with the kids since I don't have a full kitchen (week 9 of renovations now) and because we're still on a taco mission, we have a lot of tortillas around so I made the DIY Doritos from our blog and they are the bomb. Easy to make, without processed ingredients and the kids LOVE them.

Don't miss out on the Zucchini Parmesan waffles which are a great way to eat more veggies and this week's treat, the Strawberry S'mores! Talk about delicious. 

Let's beat the heat, have fun with the kids, and get this week started!

With so many of us doing the Family KickStart Program with our families right now, pizza night with these Zucchini Pizza Bites continues to be a winning hit!  

I'm on week 7 of having a limited kitchen (since May 27th, but who's counting!) so I've been grilling a lot. This summer I'm loving simple side dishes that turn plain grilled meat into a winning meal. 

With back to school around the corner, many of you will have hungry teens to feed again and today I want to share with you a few ideas to fill their lunchboxes and bellies. BTS seems like far away? Click on the post and pin it for later!

I'm giving away a few cases of Lorissa's  Kitchen Snacks on my personal Instagram. So if you love beef strips (and jerky) this is one giveaway you'll want to leave a quick comment and enter. 

Let's get this week started!

My favorite fried "rice" recipe is the first thing I want to share with you this week. Full of flavor, same texture as the fried rice your family already loves, and full of veggies! -Also, super easy to customize.

The internet trolls are already coming out messaging me about how much "fat" is in the coconut-milk based whip ice cream below. Fat isn't bad for you, especially from coconut milk. The recipe has no added sugar and is practically coconut milk + pineapple. So, at the end of the day, It's much better for you than any ice cream sold at the store. Yup. 2 real-food ingredients. 

This year, I'm starting early sharing lots of lunch packing tips each week. Make sure to save the posts by pinning them to your favorite boards and come back later when you need it. 

Have a friend that's nervous about packing lunches for the first time? Share this post or the blog post below on packing pre-school lunches. 

Of course, you guys know know much I love to simplify things and shopping for clothes is no different. This year, my kids' BTS shopping was done in about 5 minutes, since I let Stitch Fix Kids' personal stylist select the looks that match their personality best at the prices I want to pay.

Check out this falls' latest looks below. 

OH! And yes, I'm still without a kitchen (check out my IG Kitchen Reno story here) My cooktop is held up by two pieces of granite, my sink is supported by a big H. Depot bucket, and I have plywood countertops. Just a couple more weeks to go until my kitchen is done! Minus my appliances, those are still my original 12yo appliances. This girl has to save up to upgrade those.
