{Five Favorites}

I can't believe it's already Friday!!  This week flew by, and besides the freezing temps, it has really been a great one.  We had a slow week because our little Kate came down with a cold, but we still found time to enjoy the little things in life that make us smile.

{Easter Egg Ideas}

The season of Easter makes me happy for so many reasons, and I always love celebrating it every year. I have so many fond childhood memories of Easter, and I can only hope to provide our sweet little Kate with those same happy experiences.  I loved waking up and discovering our baskets from the Easter bunny, picking out the perfect Easter dress, spending the day at church with my family, excitedly searching for Easter eggs on the many "hunts" that my parents set up for us, but one of my all time favorite memories is dying eggs as we gathered around our dining room table.  I'm smiling as I type this post because it takes me right back to my wonderful childhood. :)

Forrest and I keep this tradition alive by dying Easter eggs together every year, but this year will be even more special because our little girl can sit at the table with us and join in the fun.  Although I'm going to do the traditional, kid-friendly egg dying kit for my girl, I thought I would try out some new designs and techniques to add a festive touch to my Easter decor.  I never knew there were so many cool ways to decorate hard-boiled eggs, and I can't wait to try some of these out.  As a matter of fact, I have a pot of eggs boiling on my stove as we speak. :)  Let the fun begin!!

{Cauliflower Tots}

Good morning, friends!!  I was a bit disconnected because our internet connection has been out, but I was so excited to wake up this morning to find that we were back online.  Yahooo!!!  I have been dying to post a new recipe I tried last week.  I was craving all things bad for me…French fries, tater tots, onion rings, anything fried, so I took to Pinterest to find a healthier alternative that would satisfy my craving.

I came across these cauliflower tots from Skinny Taste, and boy were they delicious!!  Not only are they healthy, but they are hubby-approved around my house!  These are really easy to prep, and I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups cooked cauliflower florets, finely chopped * See note

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 large egg white

  • 1/2 cup onion, minced

  • 3 tbsp minced fresh parsley

  • 1/2 cup reduced fat sharp cheddar chess, grated

  • 1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • cooking spray
Directions:

* To cook the cauliflower florets, steam a little over 2 cups raw cauliflower florets in a little water covered for 4 to 5 minutes or until tender, then drain well and dry on paper towel.  Using knife, finely chop and set 2 cups aside.

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Spray a nonstick cookie sheet with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Spoon 1 tablespoon of mixture in your hands and roll into small ovals.  Place on the cookie sheet and bake for 16-18 minutes, turning halfway through cooking, until golden.

Makes about 32-34 tots

{Shamrock Shake}

Hey all!!  I hope everyone is doing well and having a great week.  I don't know about you, but I'm loving the lingering sunlight that has come with this time change. :)

I've been totally consumed with my family, and I'll be posting more details and pictures on them soon.  It has been so exciting because 1) My sister gave birth to a beautiful baby girl last week, and 2) We had an awesome 30th birthday party for my husband.  It really doesn't get much better than that, and I had to put my blog posts on the back burner to celebrate two very joyous and special occasions.

I'm back right in time for St. Patrick's Day, and I had to share this with y'all tonight.  It looks so delicious, and I think I may just have to whip this up over the weekend.  I spotted this Shamrock Shake over on the Creme de la Crumb blog, and you can get the full recipe here.  Enjoy!!

I'll be back soon with more St. Patty's Day pics and projects, and I hope you all have a great night!

{Happy Birthday Forrest!}

Today is a special day around our house…Today is my husband's 30th birthday, and every second of it has been just perfect!! His day started with a run with his little girl, and when he got back I surprised him with a french toast breakfast and a big whopping side of bacon…his favorite! :)

I can't wait to continue our celebration tonight, and here's to you, Forrest!!  May the next 30 years be even better than the last!! We love you!!
