Nutella and Banana Stuffed French Toast – Recipe

Nutella & Banana Stuffed French Toast -

Breakfast is the most delicious meal of the day. I love creating big breakfasts for my family on Sunday mornings, with all the fixings. Some of my best memories growing up were Sunday breakfasts with my family. Bacon, hash browns, eggs and French Toast. Sometimes my dad would make waffles if we were extra special, but my favorite was always French Toast. As I got older my tastes changed and I fancied crepes filled with Nutella and bananas. It’s still a toss up over which breakfast dessert I prefer more, but today both of my favorite things are going to make a delicious little breakfast baby. Nutella and banana slices stuffed between two pieces of bread and dipped into a light crepey batter, then grilled up on the griddle and served with powdered sugar. Nutella and Banana Stuffed French Toast : Not your everyday meal, obviously, but a nice treat for a birthday, holiday breakfast or special occasion!Continue Reading

Manicure Monday – Jamberry Nails

Manicure Monday - Jamberry Nails -

I’ve been meaning to do this for awhile. It’s just sort fun because I seriously LOVE doing my nails and getting them done. I have an INSANE amount of products, tools, and fun nail things that I have amassed over the years and I always see the cutest nails all over Instagram and Pinterest. In fact, I share a lot of my Manicure Monday stuff on IG, but have never blogged about any of it before. Go figure.Continue Reading

Simple Oven Roasted Lemon Chicken – Recipe

Simple Oven Roasted Lemon Chicken -

Confession time. I have this really bad habit of cooking chicken too long and making it super dry. It’s rough guys. Like I seriously cannot balance getting the time down, and also making it not dry, but still delicious. I’ve just resulted to using my rotisserie or sticking to the stove, but I really wanted to like, try and get roasting a chicken down. It was on my food bucket list. So one day I tried something totally unconventional and unexpected, and the results were amazing.Continue Reading

Book Club Like Whoa #1 – You Should Have Known

Book Club Like Whoa -

Today is my birthday, and for a present to myself, I am going to do something I have been wanting to do on the blog for awhile. I am a huge book nerd. For real, I love to read and I am always reading books, and usually have a few going. I’ve really been meaning to start a book club with friends, and it’s just never happened, so I thought the next best thing would be to start one here! Yay! I once had this insane idea to start a blog where I read and wrote about 1 book a week. It was a huge commitment, and it never really took off. So without further ado, I bring you Book Club Like Whoa (catchy right?)!

Sunday Supper – Rustic Paleo Pot Roast Recipe

Rustic Paleo Pot Roast -

San Diego finally got the memo that it’s winter, so because of this amazing feat of weather wizardry, I decided that for this week’s Sunday Supper I was going to make a super simple, Pot Roast. But not just any pot roast a Rustic Paleo Pot Roast, loaded with lots of root veggies, herbs and the most tender meat you could ever have.  Really. I’ve made a lot of pot roasts since being married to Charlie, because he is the ultimate Meat&Potatoes guy, but never one as delcious and healthy as this one. Throw away all your preconceived notions of needing a crock pot and some seasoning packets, because this one is pure heaven. Forget the artificial flavors and leave the chemicals at the door.Continue Reading

The 2015 Oscar Winners List

oscars_logoI am a huge fan of movies. Really. And though I don’t get out to the movies as much as I like, I did get my hands on some Oscar Screeners this year and was able to see some of these fantastic movies without having to leave me house! Hooray for connections, right? This year, there were so many amazing films and it was real hard for me to pick between my favorite director, Wes Anderson, and my own hometown hero Chris Kyle (No really, he lived in my tiny town, outside of San Diego for 6 years during his SEALS training here!). How amazing was American Sniper? Let me also just say, WHO KNEW Lada Gaga could sing LIKE THAT!? I was sort of dissapointed she wasn’t covered in bees or something crazy, but she totally nailed it and looked INSANE. Also Jennifer Aniston’s dress was my favorite, hands down, by far. Classy and sexy. For real.

I hope for those of you who watched last night, you got a lot of your predictions right! Mine are below, in case you’re interested. My PREDICTIONS are italic, and the WINNERS are bold. Check out and see how I did compared to your picks! I don’t think I did too shabby, if I say so myself.Continue Reading

How I Met My Husband

kellies wedding

I don’t think I’ve ever shared the story of how my husband and I met on the blog before. I did briefly mention it in my “About Me” section, but I never went into depth. It’s actually sort of a funny and cute story, and definitely not anything I could have ever expected. I hear stories from people who met at a party, saw each other across the room, and just “knew”. I even have some friends who got engaged and married within 6 months of meeting each other. Those people have much better stories I think, but I’ll let you be the judge.Continue Reading
