One of my closest friends for over 25 years, lost her mom suddenly two weekends ago. This is an extremely difficult time for her and her entire family as you can imagine. The family is trying to raise funds to pay for the funeral and the expenses that come along with it. If you can spare even $5, please do. Anything will help this family and it's better than nothing. Thank you in advance. ❤️ helping others is the least we can all do. Even if you don't know them personally. Prayers are also greatly appreciated. #prayers #support #donate #give #love #thankyou #mom #prayer https://www.gofundme.com/47j1aaw

We are told time and time again how fast these years will go by. Madeline turned 3 on Sunday. We spent time with our family in Solana Beach. She road in on her belly on a surfboard for the first time with her aunt Carrie Troxell, she just took 2 weeks of parent and me swim lessons, jumped off a diving board by herself last night and is getting more and more used to sharing the attention with her little brother. Ages 2 and 3 are a roller coaster but she has her sweet moments. She loves to cuddle, tells us she loves us all the time, wants as many bedtime stories as possible, and has the best memory. She remembers everything! Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the summer. The first two photos are ages 1 and 2. The bottom last two are photos I took this week. ❤️#madieskitchen #3yearsold #solanabeach @madieskitchen @nancybustle #swimlessons

Well I missed National Tequila Day. So here's a belated post. We were going camping with our new dual-sport club a few years back, and heard it was one of the clubs member’s birthdays. Instead of baking a cake, I decided to make these margarita shooters the day prior so that we could celebrate with Jell-O shots! These came out so good and everyone enjoyed them. Yields: 24-30 Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shooters Ingredients: 1 box (3.9oz.) Strawberry (real, not generic) Jell-O 3 green baskets of fresh strawberries from the farm (about 24-30 strawberries) 8 ounces tequila, preferably reposado or blanco (1 cup) 6 ounce Cointreau (3/4 cup) Kosher Salt for garnish 1 lime, cut into small triangles and cut a slit to fit onto side of strawberry Strawberry Preparation: Cut the bottoms of the strawberry flat to get them to stand upright. When you do so, make sure that you do not cut off so much that there is a hole at the bottom. Use a huller or apple corer to empty out the strawberry. Once the strawberries have been emptied, use a towel to pat the outside of the strawberries dry. Check each strawberry and make sure there is not a hole in the bottom before you start filling. Jell-O Instructions: Boil one cup of hot water in a saucepan, then add in Jell-O powder and whisk until powder is completely dissolved, about 2 minutes. Set aside. Measure out 1/4 cup of cold water and set aside. Combine tequila and Cointreau, in cocktail shaker filled with ice. Add liquor mixture to cold water and stir to combine. Then add cold liqueur mixture to hot Jell-O mixture and stir to combine. Pour final Jell-O mix into strawberries and chill overnight. Fill your strawberries as high as possible, as the Jell-O will sink a bit in the middle. These are best made the night before and served the next day. Dip your finger in water or use a moistened brush to wet the edge of the strawberries, dip and rotate the strawberries in salt to rim. Garnish with cut lime triangles to finish. http://madieskitchen.com/2013/03/strawberry-margarita-jell-o-shots/ @madieskitchen @lauriemontee @acasper805 #jelloshots #strawberry #tequila #nationaltequiladay #madieskitchen #birthday #jello

Thank you to everyone for the sweet Facebook messages, text messages, voicemails, and wonderful surprise treats. I started the morning with a visit at daycare by my best friend Jen Roybal Logan who brought me a delicious carrot cake from the bundt shop, a platter full of yummy homemade oatmeal raisin cookies from Katlyn Peters, a delivery ordered from Keith Burke and Amanda Burke of the freshest chocolate dipped fruits from the Edibles company, an amazing delivery of gifts from my mom and dad (not just gifts for me but for each of us) and the icing on the cupcakes...Cheryl Wyers Wallace made these absolutely beautiful cupcakes. Some with lactose free butter cream. Love the talent behind these. And a nice lunch with my mother in law. Oh...and my alternator went out on my 94 LC as I was leaving daycare so hubby came and gave me a jump. Taking the weekend to get a new battery and dropping it at the shop before I head out on a TX work trip this week. Never a dull moment. Love to all. Thank you again. Looking forward to a dinner date with James tonight. The first date without a kid or being pregnant we've had in a few years. 💕#madieskitchen @madieskitchen @jenjlogan101 @burka_durka @i.love.superman82

When it's been 105 for multiple days straight, you get creative! Forts in the living room. We put on the movie Frozen for the 1st time and it took all day to get through it. She liked it though. Thanks Jen Roybal Logan for letting us borrow it. Madie and I hit Target at 8am before the heat wave. A couple things on this subject. Target! It's become very convenient for us. They nearly have everything. Where you can get gifts, kids swim shoes, groceries, and toiletries in one place. I've always had the Target Red card. You get 5% every purchase when you use it and free shipping for online purchases. I just started using the Cartwheel App. Yes you have to scan each item but it does give you a nice little discount when you check out. I love saving money. Madie saw the Frozen popsicles and asked to have them. At first I said no. Then realized I didn't have any homemade popsicles made and these just happened to be "mini" popsicles. 15 calories each. 3g carbs. It also gave me the idea to make mini ones next time. At Target now with discounts you can get 20 popsicles for about $3.50. Nicolas turned 8 months today and he's majorly teething so he indulged in a popsicle as well. @madieskitchen #madieskitchen #homemadebabyfood #8monthsold #frozen #popsicles #forts #target @target @targetcartwheeldeals http://madieskitchen.com/2013/06/strawberry-paletas-popsicles/

With these 100 degree days quickly approaching, we are trying to find meals that don't require using the oven. We found this delicious yogurt lactose free cheese at Sprouts that was perfect for a light charcuterie appetizer before dinner. Also got tons of produce: cucumbers, grapes, 🍓, and watermelon. Please post some of your favorite summertime meal ideas. Crock pot and BBQ welcomed as well. #madieskitchen @madieskitchen #fruit #charcuterie #lactosefree #sprouts @lactosefreeme_ #salami #cheese #cashews #ritzcrackers

For all the Momma's and daddy's looking to make homemade stews for your infants/toddlers, it's really simple. Each week I use a different poultry, carb, and veggie. No seasonings necessary. Boil until soft, blend with enough of the boiled water to get the thickness you want. Chicken, steak, pork, ground beef, ground turkey. Yams, sweet potato, russet potato, Yukon gold, tomato. Peas, Brussel sprouts, broccoli, string beans, garlic, onion, squash. Nicolas has liked every combination so far. We've still not made one with pork. This was a meatball style soup. Ground beef, peas, potato, garlic, and shallots. Don't be afraid to get creative! ❤️#madieskitchen #homemadebabyfood #meatball #soup #nutribullet #meatstew @madieskitchen #peas

"Ride with Pride in 85..." I just can't get over this find of mine. I've been on a business trip since Sunday. Walked in late this afternoon to a small package in the mailbox. I pulled out this vintage t-shirt that a cool guy on EBay sold me recently. Not sure his story behind it, why he was selling it. Either way, I put it on and when my husband walked in he shook his head. He is very sad it's a Small and not a Large. Mine, mine, mine. Let's see some of your oldest favorite t-shirts. I've done LAB2V so I feel like that gives me authority to wear this.

I've been craving halibut for some time now. After a quick trip to Costco with Madie last weekend, we decided to grill the fresh Atlantic halibut we picked up spur of the moment. Yes it was pricey but we already had all the ingredients so it was really a dinner for 3 for less than $30. Found this recipe on HEB and altered it a bit. Pat halibut with paper towel. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spray a large piece of foil with cooking spray and grill the halibut on the foil. BBQ until internal temp is around 135. In a large pan sauté garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, capers, white wine, and 2 tbsp of butter. Once it's at a boil, add in a pinch of dill and remove from heat. Only flipped fish once. Enjoy halibut with French fries or over white rice. Spoon the lemon caper sauce over the fish. And heaven is what you get! https://www.heb.com/recipe/recipe-item/grilled-halibut-with-lemon-butter-caper-sauce/1398728864312 #madieskitchen @madieskitchen #halibut #capers #bbq #whitewine #pineridgewinery #costco #lemon #grilling #fathersday #fish

With the Big Bear Run beginning this weekend, it seemed like a good time to post some images from my latest magazine purchase. I may have a problem. You will see a few more of these posts with articles on Big Bear and LAB2V. Today's post comes from the September 1967 issue of American Motorcycling. A one page article on the 4th Annual Big Bear Run. Good luck to all the riders this weekend. Hubby and I lack babysitting options for our near 3 year old and near 8 month old. Have a great time! @bigbear_trailriders @jnicholson1966 @madieskitchen #bigbear #bigbearrun #madieskitchen #americanmotorcycling #vintage #1967 #dualsport

Friendly reminder that Father's Day is this Sunday. I had Madie draw in the card for her Dad, printed some photos, ordered an assortment of highly rated cigars, got him a 1956 issue of Cycle magazine, and homemade his favorite salsa. All a work in progress over the last couple months. For my dad I sent a special gift and card since he's in Ohio. Sometimes it's hard to get creative when we are so busy. I think a simple card is plenty but when you have a husband that does so much for his family, especially when I travel so much for work. It's important for me to show him how much he means to our family. Truly blessed. Wishing everyone a nice Father's Day weekend before the next couple days get away from me. #madieskitchen @madieskitchen #bigbear #cyclemagazine #cigarcom #fathersday #salsa #homemade #bestdad #cigars @bigbear_trailriders

One hour meal prep for our family of 4. While Nico was down for a 5:30pm power nap and Madie was outside helping her dad install headlights on the T100 before sun went down, I was able to prepare puréed pears, puréed stew (chicken, Brussel sprouts, mushrooms, orange bell pepper, and Yukon gold potatoes), puréed butternut squash, garlic chicken, sautéed mushrooms, and roasted crispy wedge potatoes. Dinner is served! And lots of leftovers. And somebody wanted to help. "Help" meaning try all of Nico's food before he does. Now time to clean up and take the kids for an evening stroll around the cul-de-sac. ❤️ have a great night y'all. @madieskitchen #madieskitchen #7monthsold #homemadebabyfood #butternutsquash #pureedfood #pear #chicken #stew #mushrooms

What a week. We took our first real vacation of the year and the first few days Madie had a bad cold. Then James caught what she had. Now Nicolas and I are just expecting to get it. We ate two meals out and made all other meals at the cabin. Which always saves so much money. One night I just made a very simple spaghetti dinner with Texas toast and James grilled Italian sausage. Nico loves marinara sauce so I decided to put the pasta in the food processor to see how soft and small I could get the bites. It worked! Doesn't sound so appetizing but he ate all of it. Nico turns 7 months next week. He's eating really well and only waking up early in the mornings if he needs his diaper changed. Let's go back to the Texas toast part. I usually don't buy prepackaged frozen bread but it was emergency food in the cabin freezer and was expiring soon. I was GOOD. Toast in a pan or on the BBQ. With that said, this one time we had a pretty amazing burger up in Kennedy Meadows on Texas Toast. Highly recommend this unhealthy burger.

Tostada is a Spanish word meaning "toasted". In Mexico and other parts of Latin America, it is the name of various local dishes which are toasted or use a toasted ingredient as the main base of their preparation. My mom used to make tostadas a lot when we were kids. I probably haven't had one in 20+ years. But I remember really enjoying them. This week I made Nicolas a ground turkey stew so I decided to use the leftover ground turkey to make taco meat. Also had some older corn tortillas that were expiring soon so I had the idea to make tostadas with organic refried beans, white rice, lettuce, ground turkey meat with a little taco seasoning, avocado, and tomatillo salsa. Fried the tortillas until crispy in olive oil. Pat oil off on paper towels. You can always add cheese, sour cream, guacamole, leave it vegetarian, etc. @madieskitchen #madieskitchen #tostadas #vegetarian #amysorganic #turkey #corntortilla #mexicanfood #avocado #kidfriendly

For all the mommies who are pumping, who are pregnant or know someone that plans on nursing their baby; I wanted to share how you can get a free pump through your insurance. You register yourself first, by calling Edgepark. They will ask for a prescription from your OBGYN. Your doctor can fax it in or email it to Edgepark. I registered very early with Madie which was good because she was 5 weeks early. They sent it out as soon as I went into the hospital which is how I heard about the ones you can rent for $55 per month from Queen of the Valley. Those Symphony ones cost over $2,000 to buy one. Edgepark shipped me the Medela Pump in Style free of charge. I used it on all my business trips for a year with Madie and for 5 months with Nico before I realized it didn't seem as powerful. So I called Edgepark to ask what the chances of getting another free pump would be since I planned to nurse him at least another 7 months. They asked me for another prescription, my doctor sent it in, and the new pump was shipped. Thank you insurance! Thank you Edgepark! And I'm thankful I can provide for our babies with the best nutrients they can get the first year of life. Edgepark phone #: (800) 321-0591 - Fax: (330) 963-6839 Email: pumpprescriptions@edgepark.com www.edgepark.com The one I rent from Queen of the Valley for $55 per month: well worth it! http://www.thetot.com/product/medela-symphony-breast-pump/?gclid=Cj0KEQjwx6TJBRCWtsiXpI7bhOYBEiQA1en3FwdTKakJ32wtvmp-P7Ny28CTALO2jgehhJFPtNX6v_8aAkXm8P8HAQ And a huge thank you to Amanda Lewis Gutierrez for telling me about Pumps covered by insurance. Mommy advice is so helpful! 💕 @madieskitchen #medelabreastpump #medela #breastpump #nursing #mommylove #dedication #edgepark #mommysmilk
