Temporary Break

You may have noticed that I haven't posted a recipe in a while.  As I mentioned on my About Me page, we are in the process of moving to Wyoming.  Our house closes on Monday and we will be out by Tuesday so it has been really crazy around here the last few weeks trying to get everything packed and ready for the move.  I will be back and going once we are settled in Rock Springs, but I honestly don't know when that will be.  We are in a bit of a housing crisis right now, as in, there are too many people and not enough houses to rent in the area.  I'm praying we find something very soon!

Shredded Beef Tacos

Yes. . . that's the answer to the question that is going through your mind right now, "do those tacos taste as good as they look?"  And the answer is '"Yes!"  You want to know what's even better about these tacos than how good they look?  They are SOOOOO simple to make.  Throw a few things in the crockpot and in 4-6 hours you have delicious shredded beef for these amazing tacos.

Mint Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

Alright!  I will admit that the green glaze might be a little much, but I have a good reason!  This is the perfect breakfast to have St Patrick's Day morning!  I think the kids will love to eat green glaze!  Well alright, my 13 year old didn't think it was all that cool, but my 3 year old loved it!  You could just leave out the green food coloring if its a little too weird for you.

Strawberry Oat Smoothie

Sometimes when I'm throwing together a smoothie I think that the more ingredients I add the better it will be.  I'll stand there with my fridge open just searching for more things to add when really it's probably perfect just there way it is.  I'm glad I stopped with only these 5 ingredients for this smoothie because it sure was tasty!  I'm just waiting for summer to come so I can try this with some fresh raspberries instead of frozen strawberries! Yum-e!
