The Summer with Trader Joe’s Link Up is back with a week of salads! Hope you got to try one of those delicious SANDWICH recipes from last week. Turning on the oven during the summer is not my favorite. Generally I’ll endure the heat for a nice pie or batch of cookies, but otherwise, it’s […]

RECIPE FEATURED ON RELAY FOODS! Growing up I always equated July with berries. We had a large patch of wild growing black raspberries on my parents’ 6-acre property in Michigan, and each summer I’d monitor the bushes carefully, grabbing my pail at the first sign of harvest. As a 10-year-old living off a dirt road, […]

I took my daughter out for ice cream today, chocolate ice cream to be exact. We’d been cooped up inside for days on end, and I just wanted to get her out, spark her imagination, and thrill her spirit with a change of scenery and activity. I’ve been making it a point to not use “social” […]

Trader Joe's Summer Link Up //Sandwich

It took me a few years of grocery shopping, but I eventually got on the Trader Joe’s bandwagon, especially after moving to Baltimore and being disappointed by the sales system of the traditional grocery stores in the area. Every week I make the 20+ minute drive outside the city to load up my red cart […]

In the space of 5 years, we’ve moved 4 times and attended 3 different churches, all while journeying through {hopefully} the most stressful season of our lives. Living in one spot for only 1-2 years can be tough and lonely. It’s tempting to move in, survive, and move out, without making any effort to build […]

Chicken Hash | @revisionarylife

I love having this skillet of fresh veggies and flavorful chicken greet me at the beginning of each new summer. It’s been in my collection of favorites since first bite, and I look forward to it every year. And this dish is no respecter of meal times, breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Just take your pick […]
