Spicy Orange Pork Chops

Grilling is one of my very favorite parts of summer. Marinating slabs of meat, throwing them on the grilling and eating a healthy meal in a matter of minutes is totally my jam on relaxing summer days.

Pineapple Peach Sunrise Smoothie

Pineapple Peach Sunrise Smoothie

  Smoothies are a favorite breakfast around here. I love getting a huge portion of fruits (and veggies sometimes) all in one shot.

Cuban Pork Chops with Mojo

So, I’ve been trying to write this post for about two hours but I’m just drawing a blank. Probably because the little miss has been waking up about every 10 minutes so I have to go in her room and pop her pacifier back in her mouth. You could guess that sleep has been a precious commodity around here lately.
