Green Giant: A Giant Surprise and a coupon!


As many of my regular readers know, we recently moved from North Carolina to Arizona. (Well, we're sort of still in the process, but that's another post.) With our move, Brian and I decided we needed to make some other changes in our life. One of the biggest ones being, to eat healthier and to get our exercise on.

Spring Cupcake Toppers printable

It has been super busy for us ..... we're still waiting for our house to close out here (prayerfully, next week!) I am definitely digging the nice weather here on the West coast :) It's been sunny and in the upper 80's and lower 90's since we've been here! I hope everyone is doing well! I am missing my friends and can't wait for life to settle down so we can catch up!

Y'all know I have to share a spring printable with you - so I created these cupcake toppers. As always, please feel free to download the image for your own personal use - You may not claim the image as your own, re-sell, or redistribute it. I always appreciate sharing and pinning, and I love for you to link back to my post :)

@mvemotherHello everybody, my name is Erin and most days you can find me at My Very Educated Mother where I share crafts, recipes, and household tips. I’m so excited to be guest posting here at Love Bakes Good Cakes.

Today I’m going to share with you a recipe that got me through my first pregnancy, the Classic Dump Cake.  Seriously, I would eat at least one a week. And am I the only one who wonders why something so delicious has such a horrible name?

Today is the Day!!

BundleoftheWeek.com, 5 eBooks for $7.40!

today is the day
Hello, friends!

We are officially headed West this morning! A brand new journey and phase in life awaits us! :) We are super-duper excited and we look forward to seeing parts of this great country, we've never seen before! Brian's family is on the West coast, so this will be great for our family - to be closer to them! We hope to take pictures along the way to share with you! I will do my best to check in on Facebook (I can't make that promise though!) during the evening hours and see how y'all are doing and let you know how we are doing! If you're interested in following along, you can find my Facebook page HERE. We have 4 long days of driving ahead of us ... and we pray that the weather is cooperative! I'll be waving at some of my bloggy friends as we drive through their states! :) Our first "final destination" is gramma's house in California .... so Brian and I can have a much needed break and some alone time! ;) We will be driving almost coast to coast!

Weekend Round-Up {3-9-13}

lbgc - weekend round-up
We're down to the wire! We're loading everything up to be moved across the country today! We'll have some last minute cleaning to do ... tomorrow, we're heading out to pick up Brian's mom from the airport so she can ride back with us. I am so thankful she is able to come out to North Carolina and help us out by driving back with us - and she will probably be the one to keep Brian and I sane! :)

Let's check out what happened around here this week -

Turkey Spinach Wraps

My family love wraps. I almost always have tortillas on hand - and I'm not sure why, but my kiddos seem to think that a wrap is better than a sandwich - even if they have the exact same things on them! Weird, I know. 

Even though this is a "recipe", I am not posting this so much for that reason. I think it's easy to get into a "lunch or dinner slump" ... and spend weeks eating sandwiches because they're easy and convenient. Nothing against sandwiches - I enjoy them too ... But sometimes, ya just gotta get funky and switch things up a bit! Maybe it's something about the presentation that makes wraps so much more inviting? We enjoy lots of variations of our favorite sandwiches in a wrap ... and I'm hoping that if you're one of those people in that "slump", you'll give wraps a try!

They're also great for lunchboxes for school or work!

I believe the possibilities are endless! Happy wrapping, y'all! :)

Italian Breakfast Strata

We had this Italian Breakfast Strata on Christmas morning. I actually forgot about this until I was going through my picture folders and ran across it again! If you're a blogger, I'm sure you've done it as well! Good intentions, bad follow through. Of course, this recipe is too good not to share with y'all!

If you're looking for a great Easter or weekend breakfast - look no further! This Italian Breakfast Strata is easy to prepare since it starts the night before. In the morning, top it with some cheese and bake! Easy peasy! We enjoy it with a fruit salad.

This would also be a great dinner idea, for those who like breakfast for dinner! Just make sure sure you plan ahead since the bread does need some time to soak up the milk and eggs. 

I hope you and your family enjoy! :)

BBQ Chicken Pizza

Do y'all remember the Bread Machine Pizza Dough I posted the other day? You didn't seriously think I'd post a dough recipe without helping you figure out a great way to top it, did ya?! And boy do I have a good one for you too!

There's only a few more days left before the big move! Can you feel the excitement brewing?! We have been getting things ready and we are starting to see an end in sight. If I have learned nothing else from this - I now know that less is more. Why in the world do we have all of this "stuff"?

Because of the upcoming move, our menu has been a little screwy. I have been trying to use up things we already have. Sometimes, that's easier said than done. Ya have to be creative .... but that can be a good thing. There are a few new "science experiments" coming to the blog in the future - all of which came from items I needed to use before the move. Right now though, I'd love a slice of this homemade pizza .... oh, how I can't wait to get out to Arizona and resume our pizza nights! With a pizza this delicious, how could I not want it?!

It's no secret that my family loves our Friday night pizza night. We have tried so many different flavors - One of my personal favorites is Tomato Spinach Alfredo Pizza ... One of my family's favorite's is this BBQ Chicken Pizza. In case y'all haven't figured it out - we sorta have a thing for BBQ sauce, bacon and chicken. ;)

I hope your family enjoys this tasty pizza as much as mine!

Weekend Round-Up {3-2-13}

BundleoftheWeek.com, 5 eBooks for $7.40!


What a week! Nothing bad ...  it was just busy! My blog turned one this week and I had a Facebook party to celebrate :) My bloggy friends brought me lots of yumminess to help me get acquainted with our move to Arizona! You can find all of the recipes that were shared on THIS PINTEREST BOARD.

Needless to say, there's been a lot of packing. Isn't it funny how it seems like you don't need something .. until you pack it in a box?! What is the deal with that? I have had it happen more times this week than I care to count. One good thing about this move is, I am getting rid of a lot of stuff! It's amazing all of the stuff we amass over time. I am hoping to keep our lives much simpler once we get out to Arizona. Who needs all this "stuff' anyways?!

Let's see what happened this week on the blog:
