Avocado Burgers 4

Avocado Burgers

Guys have this head nod, finger raise kind of language that means, “Nice ride.”. I don’t speak it, but I’ve witnessed it my whole life. I grew up at a race track with my dad racing a 1968 Corvette and now I watch my husband speak this same language as we venture to the channel…

Grilled Romaine with Creamy Avocado Greek Dressing

If you follow along on Instagram, you may be tiring of pictures of Shea (I’m sorry, she’s just so stinking cute with her rolls and painted toes!). Or Lily (who DOESN’T love a bulldog?). Or most recently, SALADS (can we all agree that these can be as boring or enticing as we make them?)! I’m…

Easy Baked Buffalo Chicken Fajitas + Weekly Menu

Did I brag about how I got to stop home at lunch one day last week to throw dinner in the crock pot? It was fabulous. Equally as enjoyable was eating lunch with one hand while throwing tennis balls down the driveway for Lily with the other. A productive lunch break with some fresh air…

It’s hard to believe Mr. P and I moved to Michigan nearly 3 years ago. To this day, when I tell people I live in Michigan, they offer up their sympathy. Yes, the winters are brutal. Yes, there are times of the year that I would do quite literally anything to sport a single layer…

I’m in the right crowd with my new co-workers — we are all fans of food. Our monthly staff meetings begin at 8:30am so naturally, breakfast is involved. Last month there were these juicy, sweet strawberries dipped in honey Greek yogurt and delicious, flaky, super sweet coffee cake. This month, I agreed to bring something…

Happy Mother’s Day! My little sweetie wanted to be the first to wish me Happy Mother’s Day…at 3:45am, and again at 5am, and for the day at 7am. And Mr. Prevention and I were BIG TIME party animals and went out until nearly 11pm last night. Insanity, I know! Since Mr. Prevention wasn’t fully recovered…

7 Months Old and Surviving a Hunger Strike

Oh, hi. Yes, I took a small blogging hiatus. I have some decent excuses, like visitors in the evenings, internet that has been a little finicky, hockey games (I scored 2 goals…that never happens!), and throwing out my back (what the hecccccccccccck?), but the truth is…the weather. Until today, Michigan has had a BEAUTIFUL week…

Mexican Rice

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I recently had a conversation with…someone (I can’t recall who) about how Cinco de Mayo isn’t heavily celebrated in much of Mexico. I say, you never need a reason to enjoy a celebration and Mexican food – it’s always perfect. Always. Please recall how I could eat Mexican all day every…

Whole Foods Sonoma Chicken Salad + Weekly Menu

Shea will be 7 months old on Wednesday (howww???) and we are still on our breastfeeding journey. Which is more pumping than anything with work, but still…high five, self! While many women notice cravings and an increased appetite during pregnancy, I escaped all of that during my pregnancy. I actually ate most of my meals…
