I  do not recall ever dreaming of being a mom or seeing a baby and melting.  It was never in the forefront of my mind.  It was always in my mind, way back in my mind that I as a  type one, I  probably just would not have that experience  in my future.  I would […]

I wanted to create a healthy fresh quick meal and I did it for under twenty two dollars and I am SO proud.  This meal was a success and will be a repeat in my house.  I wanted to not  have to spend too much time in the kitchen so I bought store bought pesto, […]
