    Chipotle Pumpkin Soup with Chicken & Barley

    What better way to make my blogging return than by talking about my favorite topic: food, at the kickoff to my favorite season: fall, with one of my favorite ingredients/spices: chipotle…? I’ll answer: there is no better time. Hiiiiii, glad to be back. I’ll keep it quick, because I want you guys to have enough time to go to the store tonight and snatch up all the ingredients so you’re ready to make this tomorrow. I got it from an incredible blogger and influencer, Dr. Edie…  I encourage you all to like her on Facebook and watch her live videos. I could listen to her for hours! And, we’re apart…

If you’re an expectant mom, or are thinking about having a baby, or are in the process of trying to have a baby, I want to give you the best advice that I could give you. Are you ready?

    Five Things [Private Island Menu Edition]

    From The Daily Post: You’ve being exiled to a private island, and your captors will only supply you with five foods. What do you pick? This is so hard. Like, really hard. I like food. If I could only have five foods, it would break my heart. But, I think I have finally narrowed it down into a great, well-rounded group of five of my favorite foods. I’m also going to assume that my own private island is chock-full of things like fresh mangos and coconuts, so none of my five will be in the fruit family. In no particular order, I present to you… the list. I prayed over…
