I am currently a domestic engineer as my two daughters are in school full time.  I have many key roles in this position, mom, mommy, mother, driver, cleaning lady, scheduler, activity and event planner, laundry magician, boo boo fixer, fixer of all problems, and most importantly or my favorite head whisk holder and chef!  We are a very active on the go family.  My husband likes to run, and it has now become a family activity we can all do together, well the fun runs anyways maybe someday we will join him on a marathon or half marathon. Our daughters fill their time with soccer (traveling and rec leagues), volleyball, gymnastics, and running.  I cross-train (love HIIT), fell in love with PIYO last year (never was a fan of yoga until PIYO) and we all enjoy outdoors activities like hiking, camping, kayaking, and snow activities as a family

I was going to start this blog years ago being urged by friends to do so (I even had the name picked out) but chickened out having no experience with these things.  The urges were the result of me being asked for recipes over and over for pictures of food I would post.  Pictures which were originally destined to be in a cookbook for my girls and like many things, eventually found their way to social media. In 2012 I decided to go down the life path of “clean eating”; trying to be the best me I could be by working out more and fueling my body right.  Along this journey still wanting to do what I love (cook and bake) I found it both challenging and fun to come up with new ideas and recipes. So in 2013 I started this blog to share this passion of mine, showing others that eating healthy can be fun!

Now that you know a little about me, let me tell you a little about what you will find on my blog…

I am committed to two things, being true to who I am (which is why you will see many different recipes past and present as my and my families needs change and or evolve) and having fun! Cooking just isn’t about food; it is the fuel our body needs.  It’s fun, delicious, there is emotion, and so many more things than just the food. My daughters are my biggest inspiration and they love to help me in the kitchen.  They love it when their food is fun or “fancy” and I want to make sure they’re eating healthy. Of course everything is good in moderation and everyone needs balance. So this blog will be a mix of all different types of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks.  It will be everything from healthy shakes and smoothies (which we drink a lot of), raw whole foods, elaborate “fancy” meals, simple meals, desserts, and kids meals and snacks. As I said everything needs balance and everything in moderation so while most of the foods here will be healthy, you ABSOLUTELY WILL find indulging over the top desserts and treats as well!

Eat well, play hard!
Enjoy!

    Can you host events to do fundraisers?
    Tie into the organizations website plus post on local newsmedia sites with weblinks etc.?
    This could soar to great heights. Your ideas are so original. Just totally cool and fun.

    Found your site thru Vega! We followed you on twitter and saw a photo of really cute kitty cat cookies! Is that recipe on your site? I wanted to show the photo to my Mom because it’s so cute & she loves making cookies…or at least I would love her to make me those.
    Thanks!

      Thank you! The blue kitty with dots that was my Twitter background? I don’t see it there anymore but I am not sure if that is where you saw it or if it was a link. It is a sugar cookie with icing I made to replicate a http://www.blablakids.com doll named Bubbles. It is not on my blog as I made them for Christmas last year and again right before I started my blog. You can find more pictures of them in my Instagram. I posted them in February and December. I am not able to post a link to the pictures on Instagram. I believe it is also posted on the blablakids website I can see if I can find a link to it.

    Your site is an inspiration. I have three very active young boys and a cyclist for a husband. I am looking towards clean eating although our diet is quiet good. I want serious energy to keep up and get the family fully charged! I am in the UK so some things you use are not on my radar yet. Thank you for the fun fresh approach with the family in mind.

  8. I like your creative ideas for kids food! As a fellow Mom and blogger I appreciate your inspiration!

    I am a pescetarian who really hates to cook… but in order to live I must cook… & I really dislike following recipes, HA (my game plan is to find a man who likes to cook)… anyway! I stumbled upon your site & decided to try some of your recipes…
    I made the sweet potato pot pies & they smell amazing!
    I made the White Bean & Mushroom chili (I subbed leeks for onion because I had an extra from the SPPP & forgot to buy onions). I tasted it as I was portioning it out for the week and it tasted fabulous!!!
    Lastly I made the spinach pancakes & they smelled so good. I made the peanut butter tofu spread too to put on them.

    Can’t wait to try more recipes! Thanks for these, I am excited 🙂

      Thank you so much for your kind words. I am happy you happened to stumble upon my site and you are liking my recipes! I guess it is a good thing I try to make most of them easy for those who don’t like to cook. 😉

      If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook I would love it if you posted a picture sometime if you make another recipe.
