Amanda and Ashley


Hello! Welcome to our home online. I am a mother of two and proud military wife, currently redecorating our 8th house in 12 years- wowzers! Life in the military has been busy to say the least. With our eight and nine-year-old in tow, we have been constantly on the move. I grew up eating a ton of fast food as a kid where as my husband did not. So once we got married, it was an interesting transition to meld our two upbringings when it came to diet. Long story short, we live in the land of moderation with a significant emphasis on trying to steer towards fresh and balanced. I am a regular person with no exceptional abilities in the kitchen. I substitute part-time at my kid’s school and am currently coaching my daughter’s soccer team. Needless to say, preparing and eating fresh meals has to be a premeditated and thought out plan. When all else fails, we are regulars at Jersey Mikes and our local sub shop, Lenny’s. When sitting on the sidelines of practices and games, I regularly surf the internet to find interesting ideas and turn them into something that fits with our family. I’ve come to love planning and prepping for a busy lifestyle while still maintaining a balanced diet. I hope to help you find it easy to do as well!


Hey guys! Thanks for stopping by! I am an Army wife, mom of 2 and enjoy dabbling in just about everything! Whether it’s creating a new design on the Silhouette or raising money for our school’s PTO, I love keeping busy and helping where I can. I love playing tennis, spending time on our beautiful Gulf beaches and hanging with my family. Most week nights you will find me on the sidelines of the soccer field, at a cross-country meet, or cheering on my son in flag-football. Both kids are very active and keep me on the go! This sometimes makes meal planning and eating as a family a challenge. These days, if I’m at a practice of some sort, my daughter is quite the help in the kitchen. Many of the recipes you will find here are easy enough for her to help me get dinner on the table (or in a to-go container)! Amanda and I both agree that “fast food” doesn’t always need to be served through a drive-thru window! We are excited to bring you delicious, easy to make meals that you can enjoy wherever life takes you!
