Gingerbread Protein Shake

The title should be “how to eat a gingerbread shake all day, every day”. It’s basically the story of my life for the past week. I ate them for breakfast. I ate them for lunch. Ate? Drank? Anyhoo.

Because that would make it healthy, right? Breakfasts is the most difficult meal when deciding what to eat. I mean, dinner? Easy. 9 times out…

Crockpot Apple Cinnamon Pork Tenderloin

Last year around this time, I was super pregnant.  I’m talking 38+ weeks, super pregnant.  Can’t see my toes, about to burst pregnant. And yet – I stood in the kitchen for almost an entire day prepping over a months worth of freezer-to-crockpot meals – amongst other things like pre-made frozen casseroles and holiday treats.  What can I say,…

You know that recipe I promised you weeks ago? Whoops. I honestly had every intention of keeping up with blogging, but during school semesters, my life is consumeddd. Plus side?  It’s the first recipe in my 12 Days of Christmas event.  My hope to bring back blogging for as long as possible before spring semester swallows me…
