Well looky what we have HERE!!!

Look what showed up on the cover of Entertainment weekly! HELLO!

Great Vinaigrette!

I used to buy this brand of apple cider vinegar at Shirlyn's Healthfood Store and make the vinaigrette recipe on the side of the bottle until I saw this the other day at Harmons Groceries. It is yummy! I just take whatever greens I have in my fridge and at a little fruit and then top it off with this vinaigrette. This morning I mixed spinach, cucumber, celery, cilantro, and canteloupe - it was great! I have always been frustrated with premade dressings and have made my own - now I don't have to. Another good one is the Barefoot Contessa's "crudite platter."

A Nursing Mom's Breast Friend!

Okay, so as a new mom my memory, short term that is, has gone out the window. Luckily, I haven't thrown out the baby with the bath water, yet!! I was given this "lifesaver"...at least for my memory. Anyway, after Shannon's post about the pump bra I knew I needed to post about this AWESOME band that every nursing or even non-nursing mother needs! This one is obviously a little more on the "serious" side!

Check out their website...the Milk Band was invented by my brother and sister-in-law's neighbor and I was lucky enough to be given one!! I absolutely LOVE it and would recommend it to anyone who is nursing. Forget about the old safety pin trick of trying to keep track of which side you nursed on last. Oh and you can mark at what time you last fed your sweet little one! Hope some find this helpful!!

YUMMY - Mango Tacos!!!

So for some reason the other day I flipped on a cooking show on discovery health. The name of the show is 'Just Cook This, with Sam the Cooking Guy'. I thought the couple of recipes I saw him do sounded good and even more were easy! I like easy yummy stuff. I found his website and he had some great recipes that I am going to try.

Anyway, I saw him make this one and it looked so good. I finally gave it a whirl a week or so ago and both Steve and I loved it!!!!

Fresh Mango Tacos
1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
6 small flour tortillas
2 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 cups vanilla ice cream
2 ripe mangos, peeled and diced small
Juice from 1/2 lemon

Combine cinnamon and sugar—mix well. Lightly butter each side of the flour tortillas and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

Place tortillas in a preheated non-stick pan and cook on both sides until lightly brown. Remove to plates and top each with vanilla ice cream and some mango.

Drizzle with a little honey and add a squeeze of lemon.

Seriously ladies, this is super yummy and really easy!!!! I hope you all enjoy

I've seen it all now...

While perusing through the maternity section on E-bay, I found this gem.
Check out her description: "Sometimes it's hard to fitting pumping into our busy schedules. The Easy Expression Hands-Free Pumping Bustier makes pumping easy and effortless. This Bra allows you to: read, write, talk on the telephone, use the computer and even tend to your baby....all while pumping!"

There's only 5 available, so fight me for it!
Ladies, I've now seen it all.
