How to grill pizza |

Pizza night is a year-round staple at our house, but during the hot summer months there are plenty of days when turning on the oven just isn’t going to happen. Thankfully, you can cook pizza outdoors on a grill!

Grilling pizza is easy, quick, and helps give your recipes an extra boost of flavor. Here are step-by-step instructions to show you how: >> More

So. I am currently training for a half marathon. I must have lost my mind because this is something I swore I would never do. Running just hasn’t been my jam, and I used to think people who chose to run were crazy.

Well, call me crazy, because I’ve taken up running and I love it! I think I’m doing it just to prove that I can? Plus, it’s also been a great way to get back in shape post-baby.

In addition to running, I’m trying to bet better at what I eat, and I’m trying to reign in the sweets a little better. So when I do allow myself a splurge, it’s gotta really be worth it. >> More

Energy Trail Mix |

This recipe was developed in partnership with Diamond of California.

Now that we live in Moab, the adventure capital of the world, we are out and about all the time. Hiking, biking, exploring, road trips— every weekend we try to pick something new and fun to see and do.

Sometimes we wake up on Saturday morning and decide to take off somewhere and the scramble to get out the door ensues. Get the kids dressed, grab the sunscreen , fill up the water bottles, and throw a bunch of snacks in the cooler. Trail mix, not surprisingly, has become a pantry staple for just such occasions as this. But it can be so expensive! So I’ve started making my own.

Things are starting to heat up here in Moab and I’m gearing up for a long hot summer the best way I know how— by stocking the freezer full of ice cream. It’s definitely the most delicious way to stay cool.

Last year I used the fact that I was pregnant as an excuse to eat ice cream every day. What’s my excuse this year? I’m not sure, but I’ll think of something. >> More

We’re coming up on Memorial Day Weekend! And we all know what that means— summer can officially begin.


Afternoons at the pool. Campouts. Tank tops and flip flops. Farmers markets. S’mores. Drinks out on the patio. Road trips. Sunscreen. And of course, lots and lots grilling. I’m looking forward to it all!

We’re already having hot dogs on a regular basis, but Hot Dog Night just got a whole lot more fun thanks to this pineapple and avocado salsa. >> More
