As I’ve mentioned many times, breakfast is a big deal around here, so I thought, why not a waffled breakfast quesadilla? And what a hit it was with my little guy, Cole. He went crazy for them.

I’m sure everyone has those things that reminds them of those hot summer days as a kid. For me, most of the time it’s seeing my boys out in front of the house playing catch with bright red faces, then coming back inside for a popsicle or an otter pop. Along with that, it can be something as simple as the smell of something or the taste of a certain food, especially fruit.

Jalapeno Chicken Poppers

I have done nothing but brag about our new baby, and specifically, what an angel he is and how he does nothing but sleep and rarely cries. Boy has that changed lately!
