The ground chicken spring roll

Last week my friend made egg rolls. I can't have egg rolls because they are fried. I thought I would try something different. Willie purchased some spring roll wrappers a while ago so I thought I would give it a [...]

I’m loving pumpkin right now. Try it in overnight oats!

How is everyone doing this week? How is your refrigerator feeling this week? It's Thursday so our fridge is starting to empty out which got me thinking about some things I can't get enough of lately. I love pumpkin, Willie [...]

Snappy Saturday: Mug cakes and big ole salad bowls
