Ritz Cracker Scallops

Thank you to Ty Montee for the scallop recipe. I picked up 5 scallops from Sprout’s today because I needed to swing in for vitamins. Decided to attempt his recipe and used Madie’s help after school.

Babies First Fish Halibut at 10 months

I wanted to find a fish that wouldn't taste too fishy, that wouldn't require a lot of doctoring up, and didn't have bones in it. Halibut was a perfect first fish for our baby girl to try. Madie was 10 months old when we gave her baked halibut. Super easy, flaky, and tasty. She loved it! Read More

Pregnancy Sushi

When you are pregnant you definitely miss some very important things. #1: sushi, #2: bottles of wine, #3: dirt biking. With that said, you can’t eat raw fish.
