Spicing Up Family Life

Here’s an idea I shared on Instagram earlier this week. I thought I’d share if with you for some inspiration. For our “travels” to Italy we have taught our boys how to say “ciao” (“hi” and “bye”). We’ve also shown them the geographical location, some of the popular attractions, and a 4K drone video. WeContinue reading “Spicing Up Family Life”

Buffalo Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Fries

For our Sunday recipe, I wanted to incorporate a vegetarian meal. My husband and I have been trying vegetarian for 2 weeks.
