Homemade I-5 Pile Ups

I-5 Pile Ups | eat. snack. love!

For those who aren’t on the west coast, “I-5″ may sound foreign.  It’s short for Interstate 5, which is the main freeway that runs from the Canadian border to California.  Although, I’ve heard people in California call it “the 5″.  Hmmmm, weird.  Regardless, here in Washington, this mound of a breakfast is called an I-5…

Stitch Fix Review #1

I contemplated titling this post “How Jen Got Her Groove Back”, but decided against it.  It was a close margin, though. As you all know, I recently had a baby.  I’d love to report that the weight just fell off and lugging around my infant gave me guns for biceps and picking her up gave…

Creamy Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

We Had a Baby! Part 2

The last post was our story about some of the pregnancy stuff, while this is about the hospital stay leading up to our little lady’s birthday.  Let me tell you, six days in the hospital wasn’t a walk in the park.  In fact, I’d loved to have gone to the park because I didn’t breathe…

Blueberry Waffles

When I was pregnant, I had high hopes of being proactive and stocking my freezer for when the baby arrived.  Overall, I was pretty successful and these blueberry waffles definitely had a hand in that.  My husband and I brainstormed the types of food we’d like on a whim and it seems that breakfast food…
