With the holidays, I feel like I haven't had a free moment. Thanksgiving has just passed and we ate pretty good for the most part. Since Jack and I have been eating healthy and exercising, we don't give into those cravings nearly as often as we use to.
The lovely Michelle from my SacTown FitClub Family was so nice for sharing this recipe. I put my own twist on the dish for my Meal Prep Monday. I now have lunch for the kids and I for the next week.
This meal is so amazing! Just because you eat healthy, doesn't mean it has to taste healthy. If seasoned right, your healthy meal can taste just as good as those bad meals, but without all those bad fats, sodium and sugars.
Well, this healthy meal is amazing, and what can I say about kale.... Oh how I love thee. Kale is amazing because of these reasons:
try and use kale as much as possible because of the great nutrition value it holds.
Hope you all try this recipe, spice it up a bit and feel free to make it your own! Give it your own twist!

This dish right here is truly one of my specialties. I love making this dish. If it’s for Jacks Birthday, Valentine’s Day, or just because we want something fancy. Usually I just do the Filet with shrimp or lobster and topped with holandaise and asparagus, but this Valentine’s Day I decided to elevate my recipe a little more and try something new and this is what I came up with. I hope you all enjoy and if you have someone special, try it! Steak Oscar for Two Ingredients: For the Steak: 2 Filet Mignon Steaks 1 tbs .

After years of cooking and sharing recipes, I have finally put together my blog site. Its been a long journey in cooking for friends and family. It wasn't until recently that I was given the confidence to actually create a blog and share everything I have learned and am still learning in the kitchen. I recently was given the opportunity to air on live tv with Good Day Sacramento. It was quite the experience. Friends and family told me I was a natural on tv, but what they didn't see on tv was how extremely nervous me. My mom and my husband were there calming me down. After each take, I would let out a big "Whew" and ask how I did. Apparently my nervousness did not show when the camera was rolling. Thank Goodness! I would like to share the recipe of my dish on Good Day Sacramento with all of you. Spaghetti Squash is that ingredient that we all seem to forget about. It's amazing and very good for you to eat. I think when people look at a spaghetti squash,
Motherhood. Where do I even begin. It is both beautiful, challenging and somehow completes every part of me. When I was a young child, I remember always picturing myself as a mommy when I grew up and I knew that I would be a great mommy and I wanted to be a best friend to my kids like my mom was to me. I never knew the challenges that came along with Motherhood. I never knew how much you would worry about these precious gifts from God that you brought into this world. A dear friend of mine is a new mommy to her second child and I have been chatting with her about her challenges she's been having and that has prompted me to write this post, because I'm hoping that, like some moms out there, I want you to know, that, yes, we go through this... so I want to share with you my story. I guess I should start with my birth stories.... Cause those are always fun... LOL With our first child, Nicholas, our birth plan, as with most, we wanted to of course go the natural way
