It’s Friday morning… and I need a brownie for breakfast.
Nothing says “Saturday morning” like a mid-morning brunch with your favorite people. We’ve had some perfect Saturdays so far in 2015, and they all had one thing in common… BRUNCH!
Check out these local restaurants for some fantastic grub to start off your weekend right!
What’s your favorite Saturday morning breakfast/ brunch spot? We’re always down to try something new!!!
Guys, my husband is hilarious. I offer to bake him a cake, any kind! And he chooses a lemon blueberry pie that is literally the easiest recipe I know. Want my secret?
What you’ll need:
– a pre-baked pie crust
– one can of sweetened condensed milk (I use the reduced fat.)
– one medium tub of Cool Whip (Again, fat free or reduced fat will work.)
– two packets of KoolAid lemonade powder
– frozen blueberries
What you’ll do:
1. Mix it all together with a spatula.
2. Pour it into the pie crust.
3. Enjoy refrigerated or frozen!
Ta-da!! This used to be one of my mom’s go-to recipes when I had a sweet tooth and she was doing Weight Watchers. It’s pretty low calorie but tastes amazing!!
Tell me about your favorite easy dessert recipes that please a crowd 🙂
You know those rainy days where you feel like being a bum (i.e., yesterday…)?? Those are the perfect days for a day trip! We made our way to Atlanta today to see friends and be tourist-y in the big city.
The Atlanta Streetcar just opened last Tuesday, so we wanted to see what it was all about. The vision of the Streetcar is to connect Atlanta unconnected neighborhoods, a bold yet necessary endeavor to unite the city. For now, it’s only circulating 2.7 miles, but you better believe we rode the whole darn route! It was cool to see that travels to Centennial Olympic Park may already be more convenient. I can’t wait to see future phases linking the BeltLine! Atlanta is getting cooler and cooler. Oh… and for the first 3 months, it’s FREE!
And yes, we took selfies on the Streetcar…
Following our fun ride, we made our stop at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market (one of the stops along the Streetcar’s route). Lets talk. about. some. FOOD!!! Oh my gosh. If we lived in the city, I would beg to go to the Curb Market not only for all produce and meats, but for every stinking meal. There’s Sweet Auburn’s BBQ, Venezuelan food from Arepa Mia, amazing jerk chicken from AfroDish Restaurant, Bell Street Burritos, and so much more. Will & I grabbed coffee from the Sweet Auburn Bakery… divine. And then Mary bought our group a whole sweet potato pie… That girl…
It was an A+ day in the A. (See what I did there?) I just adore exploring cities and getting to know their unique characters. Until next time, Atlanta!
Ya’ll… It’s 50 degrees and therefore I’m in a parka… Brrrrr!
So it just makes sense to make a big batch of soup in the CrockPot. This time… Spicy Taco Soup (my ultimate fave soup everrrrrrr)!

Ta-da! This is THE BEST recipe to start in the morning and come home to in the afternoon piping hot and ready for you to eat. And it is so easy. That’s my main criteria for recipes if you haven’t noticed.
Also, I’d love to hear about your taco soup variations!! The best thing about this recipe is that I tweak it a little every time to make it slightly different than before! What will you do with your taco soup??
