So Easy a Kid Can Do It: Slow Cooker Mexican Orzo and Black Beans (video)

Hi All!
I'm so excited to introduce a new video series that will appear on my blog...
Recipes that are SO easy a kid could make it!
My 9-year-old daughter, Reagan, is super pumped to star in the very first video!  I think she's got some talent :)  Keep in mind I didn't coach her really at all on what to say...we pretty much did this video in one take after school one day.

Blender Roasted Red Pepper Soup (with video)

This Blender Roasted Red Pepper Soup is my favorite soup to make on a whim.  It's perfectly seasoned and the flavor is powerful, but not over the top.  I've made it so many times in the past 2 months because I simply cannot get enough of it!

Slow Cooker Broccoli Cheddar Soup (lightened up and gluten free)

A slow cooker and healthier version of a very popular soup--Broccoli Cheddar Soup.  Because the base of the soup is made of yellow butter potatoes instead of butter, flour and cream this soup is gluten free and lighter than it's original counterpart.  However, it doesn't taste light at all--it tastes creamy and indulgent.

3 Things I Learned at Build Your Blog Conference 2015

Hi All!
This past weekend I was lucky enough to get to attend a blogging conference called Build Your Blog.  This was the first time that I have attended this conference and I really loved it.  There is just something about being in a room with 600 other people that have the same goal as you.  I'm lucky enough to work from home.  But because of the nature of the blogging world, I don't often communicate in person, face to face with people.  It's mostly through e-mail and social media.  Which is fun and convenient and because I'm introverted I actually prefer most of the time.  But sometimes I really love getting able to BE with other bloggers and just talk through our concerns and hopes and everything else.

White Cheddar Pasta Shells with Corn, Peppers and Avocados

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Horizon Organic. The opinions and text are all mine.

Make this easy, cheesy white cheddar macaroni dish for dinner any day of the week. Give it some extra color and flavor with peppers, corn, sliced avocados, black beans, and olives. The best part is that it's ready in less than 20 minutes for an fast and scrumptious meal.

These ground turkey lettuce wraps have loads of flavor and only 6 ingredients (5 if you don't count salt). They are the perfect low carb, gluten-free meal that couldn't be easier thanks to your slow cooker!
