One Pot Lemon Chicken Piccata

Being a working single mom, I don't have a lot of time to cook. It's very rare that you will find me making a dinner using more than one pot and six ingredients! I love one-pot meals because they allow me to spend less time in the kitchen cooking and doing dishes, and spend more time with Aimery. My favorite week night recipe to make is Lemon Chicken Piccata! Not only is it a one-pot meal with just six ingredients, but it also takes less then 30 minutes from prep to clean up. Plus, this recipe includes my favorite pasta, DaVinci Spaghetti

Fun Back to School Lunchbox Ideas

Aimery is starting preschool this year and I can not BELIEVE he's starting school already! I found an amazing preschool in the area that allows children at his age to start early, and I was lucky to grab the last spot for him this fall! Although I'm going to miss spending summer days with him, I really am looking forward to getting on a set routine of knowing when he's going to school so I can plan work accordingly. I also signed him up for soccer practice on Saturday mornings, so our life is about to get real busy!

4th of July Party Tips

It’s officially fourth of July weekend, which means it’s time for backyard BBQs! Growing up, my family never really had a fourth of July tradition. Every year, we always did something different! Some years we would travel to Maryland and hang out with my cousins, and other years we stayed local and did fireworks with friends. When I left to travel and then go to college, I was never really home for the 4th of July - until this year when I moved back! Since I’m starting my own traditions with Aimery this year, I decided to celebrate the holiday by hosting a 4th of July BBQ at my home!

How I Make Week Days Easier as a Single Mom

Being a single mom, my schedule is ALWAYS busy! Week day Mornings are normally really stressful trying to get Aimery to daycare while getting myself ready for work. Something that I have found to help busy mornings is having a coffee cart ready full of Folgers® K-Cup® Pods. This allows me to get my coffee ready in one place while running out the door!

Easy Sunday Brunch

Growing up, my family always gathered around the table for Sunday brunch. It was one way for us to all spend time together and connect before each week started.
