The Monthly Scoop – March 2019

Holy moly – I can’t believe that we are at the end of March already! Typically, March is one of those months that seem to drag on forever, but this year, it flew on by!

I just want to start out by saying: thanks for joining me for my first Monthly Scoop! The Monthly Scoop will roll out at the end of each month and will be packed full of goodies such as: recipes that went live that month, life updates, favorite finds and whatever else is relevant that month 🙂 Let’s jump on in!

Recipes

March was packed full of yummy recipes:

Spinach & Artichoke Chicken Soup

Perfect, cozy meal for all these cooler, rainy/snowy days! All the creamy and dreaminess of a spinach and artichoke dip combined with chicken soup.

Smoky Chipotle Beef Stew

This one will blow you out of the water! Such a fun twist on a classic dish. A smoky broth is loaded with tender beef and potatoes.

Frosted Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Rolls

Mic drop on this one! What more could you want in life? Gooey, chocolate chip cinnamons coated in a cream cheese frosting. Brunch, anyone?

Cajun Shrimp & Cauliflower Grits

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring! A homemade Cajun seasoning gives these tender shrimp a fun kick, all while the creamy, cauliflower “grits” cool you back down.

The Best Basic Banana Bread

Need I say more? We all need this recipe up our sleeves! The perfect use for all the ripe bananas sitting on your countertop. Wonderfully filled with bananas, vanilla and topped with crunchy walnuts.

Monthly Favorites

I’m always on the hunt for clothes that are not only cute and functional, but most importantly, COMFORTABLE. I will forever give up style to be comfortable. Plus, you always need to make sure you have room for your food baby to grow, just saying (lol). But! I found the perfect tee that fits all of those categories, and you guys seemed to love them too! They are drapey in all the right places, have a curved hem in the front and back (perfect for leggings!), and can be dressed up or down.

Monthly Updates

This March I faced my fear and did my very first… Insta Live! Now, to some of you, that may not seem like a big deal. But for some reason, I was all sorts of nervous about it! Now, looking back, I see that I had nothing to fear because everything went great. I had no reason to be nervous! It actually ended up being quite fun. I’m thinking maybe one Insta Live a month? Or two? Who knows. If you didn’t get to tune in or see the replay, we made this scrumptious, comfort food dish:

Chicken Tater Tot Casserole

Oh yeah, it’s as good as it sounds.

Other life updates include: figuring out the self-timer function on my camera (how did I not know about this before?! LIFE CHANGING), going for my first run outside for 2019 (it was death, but in a good way), sticking to a budget (more on that later!), and me contemplating hosting Easter (should we?!?!).

Well, I hope that you all had a wonderful March! I know it was quite crazy, beautiful, busy and full of all the things for us, but I wouldn’t trade it up!

Should I throw a #funnyfactfriday (your daily dose of a funny fact about me) in here as a little bonus?! There’s going to be quite a few of you who may question my sanity after this one…

Bonus

#FunnyFactFriday – I hate Spring.

All the jaws just dropped.

I know, I know – you are all looking at me like I’m a crazy lady, but I have my reasons. To start off, my list of favorite seasons is: Fall, Winter, Summer, Spring. I just love all things cozy, comfy and all the fun and family traditions that come with Fall and Winter. I’m a true Norwegian gal at heart. Spring to me is this:

Allergies – Farmer’s burn piles (this on top of allergies = death) – You never know what to wear because the weather won’t make up it’s mind – Everyone is eating healthy (cake, please!) – Summer is approaching which means: shorts & swim suits aka sticking to everything you sit on. *Insert all the laughing/crying faced emojis here*

Any who, thanks for following along!

All the yummy things, 

Kj.
