Easiest Appetizer EVER! Crock Pot Meatballs

1

I went to my homegirl’s birthday BBQ over the weekend and was scrambling on what to bring. Of course I wait till last minute, and then realized she told me someone was bringing a bean/corn app…because otherwise I would have gone straight to my trusty-reliable Bean & Corn salsa. Being fat, preggo and craving everything under the sun, I thought about those yummy little meatballs covered in sweet and spicy sauce that I’ve had at different parties over the years but never knew how to make. I needed to make those not just for my own fatty-selfish reason, but because…

Preggo Fashion Finds: Forever21

0

I hit up my fave store to find some goodies for an upcoming trip, because lately my clothes have just been boring as hell. Jean shorts and a preggo tank. As comfortable as that sounds, I felt so freaking boring and BLAH. It’s like groundhogs day in my closet. I had to do something to change this cycle. Enter Forever 21. I haven’t been lucky in this store since the beginning of my pregnancy, but this past trip I found some solid pieces that will give a preggo bitch a little boost from the typical boring, blah outfits. Cuffed Drawstring…

You all are probably with familiar with the saying, “Mom knows best”, right? Now that I’m a mom I think I fall into that category of knowing, if I do say so my self. But I’ll get my head out of my ass and face reality and just leave that up to my favorite veteran mom, my own: JeanneGirl. I’m tellin’ you, if I have a question about cooking, cleaning, discount shopping or how to get a stain out of something-she knows. Now that I thinking back to my child hood and adolescence, it’s safe to say she was a…

Trader Joe’s Hidden Jewel

0

I am late to jump on the Trader Joe’s bandwagon, but I fully blame that on Trader Joe himself, because the closest one to our house is over 2 hours away. Luckily that is changing in the near future to only 40 minutes away – and I couldn’t be more excited. Until then, who ever is near one will help out this preggo and bring back my favorite item…the hidden jewel of all the delicious products under the Trader Joe’s roof: Milk Chocolate Covered Toffee Popcorn. Should I say it again? Milk Chocolate. Toffee. Popcorn. I can’t even begin to…

Throwing A Surprise Party? I’ve got some tips…

0

  For almost 4 years now, my husband has made it clear to me and everyone else that no one could ever pull a surprise party off for him. He’d say how he would know all the signs and if we were ever going anywhere beginning 2 weeks before his birthday, he’d know it would be a surprise. What a pain in the ass. Back in November, I got a brilliant idea to throw him a surprise 30th party. That gave me a good 4 months to pull it together. I didn’t know what I was in store for. All…

Easy Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Easy Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Looking for an easy dessert that will make you like Betty-effing-Crocker? Then you must make this pie..immediately. Don’t let the name “rhubarb” scare you. It scared the shit out of me when I first tried it about 3 years ago. My sister had a family dinner party and made this. I thought rhubarb was like a parsnip or something weird like that and was thinking why the hell would you make a pie out of THAT! Turned out it was the most delicious thing I’ve ever had, a perfect combination of sweet and tart. Now that I am a Stay-At-Home-Mom,…

Beer Marinated Chicken with Summer Salsa

0

I have been getting bored with my normal grilled chicken and veggies, so I felt I needed to spice things up for dinner the other night. I was on the phone with a girl friend and literally not even paying attention to what I was grabbing or even chopping. It all just started coming together, in one delicious, crazy concoction. I adore cilantro and wanted to use it in some type of marinade but I thought, what else could I put in this? Alcohol. Beer to be exact. Now, for anyone who knows me knows I only drink beer when 1….

Rainy Day Activities

0

Living in South Florida it is known that the summer months it usually rains by 3-4 pm then stops shortly after. So you plan your days accordingly – especially if you are hitting the beach or pool. Yet there are days, like today, that we wake up and its raining and no end is in sight. Guess no pool today…wah. So now what? What the hell am I going to do with a 14 month old with extreme amounts of energy?! Can’t booze it up, that’s for damn sure. So I go to plan B. Every mom should have a…
