It's all about fish and shrimp at our house! My daughter and I are both huge fans, and you can find a fish or shrimp dinner on our table at least once a week! I love to get creative and find fun and new ways to prepare it, so we don't get tired of the same old thing.

It's another cold and snowy day here in Minnesota again today. Days like these are actually my favorite! I love being nice and cozy inside our warm house, looking outside and the gorgeous white snow falling. My sisters feel the same way about snow as I do, but most people think we're absolutely crazy! I guess we really are true Minnesotans, and I really can't imagine living anywhere else!

I'm one of those people who struggles with waking up and making breakfast every morning! I end up pressing the snooze two or three times, because I dislike getting out of my nice, warm bed. Especially with it's super dark and cold outside. Then, after getting ready it's usually cereal and we're out the door. I really never thought I'd have time to make anything else other than cereal for weekday breakfasts. Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, I knew I wanted to change things up a bit.
