Happy last day of February!  To send the month out with a bang I am sharing a second super easy snack that includes my beloved avocados—California Avocado Nori Rolls.  Part of why I love these so much is because I can cut up a bunch of veggies at the beginning of the week, put them […]

August is one of my favorite months because it means the return of Hatch chili season!  Every August I go to Harmons Grocery for the first day of their Chili Roast.  The best part about this year is that we just had a brand new Harmons Grocery store open up two weeks ago only 5 […]

When Squirrel comes home from school she’s like a ravenous bear after a winter of hibernation.  You’d think I don’t feed the kid based on how hungry she is!  I try to shake things up once in a while in the after school snack department, and popsicles are an easy way to bring something new […]

Back-to-School.  Yup, it’s that time again!  I know, I can’t believe it either.  Squirrel actually had her first day of school YESTERDAY.  Isn’t that crazy?  What happened to school starting after Labor Day?  But I digress.  Squirrel is now in first grade, which means she goes to school for a full day. This means it’s time […]
