Looking for a new, healthier way to make lasagna?  Well you’ve come to the right place!  This Butternut Squash and Spinach Lasagna recipe is sure to knock your socks off!

And because it’s made with butternut squash, it’s a great choice for a vegetarian main dish.  Plus, it’s healthier!  The butternut squash is stuffed with spinach and combines three of my favorite cheeses: Ricotta, Parmesan, and Mozzarella, to create the ultimate comfort food.

Sweet Potato Chickpea BBQ Burgers. Veggie.

fullsizeoutput_1ae3

Do y’all ever have a craving for a big, juicy burger? 

I do.  ALL OF THE TIME. 

Only my burger cravings are of the meatless kind. 🙂 This might be boring for some, but nothing beats a good Veggie Burger IMO.  In fact, some of the best burgers I can remember eating have been meatless.

Don’t believe me?  Well, I’m here to change your mind.

Blueberry Smoothie.

CAUTION: The photographs for this post are terrible. I mean absolutely terrible. Please forgive me, I was famished when I made this recipe. On top of that, I’ve been super tired lately – soooo tired that the thought of dumping a smoothie into a pretty, glass mason jar seemed almost impossible.  Forgive me?  This baby is sucking the life out of me…

I know, I know, it’s only going to get worse…

Baby Shower in Idaho.

Hi y’all! Sorry it’s been so long (I feel like I’ve been saying that a lot lately…). But seriously, I’m sorry! It’s been a hectic few weeks on top of being incredibly fatigued from the pregnancy – something I was warned about, but nothing truly prepared me for it.

Last week, I was in Idaho visiting my family and friends.  I had a really nice time, but I admit, this was the first time I was eager to come back to Florida – something I’d never thought I’d say.  I missed Bryan and the pups more than ever and I just missed being home – I blame the baby.  It’s funny how you get so sick of your normal, day-to-day routine, and you always want what you can’t have – I can’t tell you how many times in the last few months I’ve complained to Bryan about wanting to move back to Idaho (or live anywhere but south Florida), but when I was away, it made me appreciate what I (we) have here.  Home will always be home, but I realized I’m starting to make my own home here in south Florida.

Pregnancy. 27 Weeks.

(Sorry I haven’t taken an 27 week photo yet… so you’re stuck with the same one from last week.)

Up until a few days ago, I didn’t understand what people meant when they said, “wait until you start nesting.”  Nesting Mode they call it.  Well, nesting mode became very apparent this morning as I found myself cleaning baseboards and couch cushions.  I also managed to clean the refrigerator – a chore I hate.  Where on earth am I getting this energy?  Wherever it’s coming from, I’m taking advantage of it while it lasts.

Black Bean, Corn and Spinach Salad.

Happy New Year’s y’all! Wow. It’s so hard to believe it’s 2018! I don’t know about you, but 2017 was a pretty eventful year for me – our Costa Rica trip, engagement, wedding, pregnancy.  That’s a lot to fit into a single year, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.  It’s been an incredible trip around the sun, and I’m expecting the next one to be even better.

Does anyone have any resolutions this year?  I’ve never been BIG on resolutions, but there are a few things I’d like to attempt to do this year…

Ya know, like have a baby. 🙂
