Clean Eating // Baked Chicken & Veggies // Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Corn Free, Nut Free, Fat Free

Thursday, September 21, 2017

Don't let that title scare you away, this delicious meal is full of fresh flavor. It is bursting with tender, juicy all white meat chicken, hearty, flavorful vegetables, and just the right amount of seasoning. Plus, it is healthy AND it tastes good! It is packed with nutrients, lean protein, and did I mention, flavor?! Even my husband likes it! Seriously, WIN!
Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Corn Free, Nut Free, Fat Free, Soy Free. This is a super clean, allergy friendly meal. Plus this is a one dish meal and is ready from start to finish in an hour. Plus, clean up is super easy. DOUBLE WIN!

I'll tell you why I decided to share this recipe with you all. It seems like lately everyone I know is developing allergies to food. Just in my close family I know at least one person with at least one of the above listed allergies. Me myself, I am allergic to nuts, certain preservatives, and I have to be very-very-very careful with my fat intake because of my gallbladder. I enjoy having lunches and get-togethers with my family, so I came up with a dish that everyone can eat when we are together.

You can add any vegetables and seasoning that you like and make it your own. I just keep mine simple and easy, because it's something that I can actually eat! Take that gallbladder haha! If I could I would add garlic and onions to it and that would be even more amazing! If your crowd isn't dairy free, some added mozzarella and Parmesan would be delicious too!
This recipe is also easy to cut down and make less or add to and make more of, cooking times just need to be adjusted slightly.

Here's what you'll need...

Photography Sneak Peek ~ Corra Jaye 2 Years

Friday, September 15, 2017

Corra Jaye is turning two! We had a fun little shoot out in the country last night. She's your typical busy little two year old who would rather run and play than look at a camera ;) But that's the fun photographing kids, I love seeing them in their element :)

Corra has such a fun personality and her expressions were just priceless. I got so many silly faces from this girl that my cheeks hurt from smiling while I've been editing!

She had her cowgirl boots on, and she put them to good use by running through the dirt and fields. Corra is so much fun and I can't believe that this sweet girl seen here, here, here, and here, is almost two! I've been lucky enough together to photograph this cutie pie several times <3 and she just get more and more fun every time!

Here's a few of my favorites... 

Thank you so much for stoping by! I hope you have a sweet and happy day :)

Travel Blog ~ Lost Lake, Idaho 2017

I'm still playing catch up on some of my travel posts! At least this one wasn't too long ago...this little vacation happened this summer!
Lost Lake, Idaho. I have been camping up there my entire life. When I was a little girl, my family and I would camp for two weeks at a time. Dirty clothes, scraped knees, smoky hair, sticky marshmallow fingers, a belly full of hot dogs, wild flower bouquets, and eating the best breakfasts in the world. Bike rides, campfires, fishing, swimming in the creek, singing, ohh the singing lol, running from snakes, looking for bears and hoping we wouldn't see one, seeing a bear! Adventures and memories that are some of the dearest to me. Who says growing up as an only child is bad? Plus, most of the time some of my cousins and friends were up there too :)
When I was young (before Alan came into the picture) we always camped on the creek at "Deer Camp". We didn't have boats or atvs, just an imagination and bikes.
After Alan entered the picture, we started camping on the lake with his family. They had a boat and motorcycles so it made sense to stay near the lake. It's still camping but it's just not what I know as camping. I still crave the sound of the creek running as a drift off to sleep.
Anyways back to our summer camping trip. We went up to Lost Lake in June for 5 nights and our good friends Chris & Kristina came up and stayed with us too. It was the first time their kids had actually ever been camping, so that was fun to watch them experience the great outdoors. There were a bunch of other friends and family up up there too, and we all had a blast! Several of the people I grew up camping with, were up there too <3
The first couple days we were there it was actually hot and we had the lake to ourselves! We swam, rode in the boat, and pulled the tube for hours!
We had such a beautiful sunset one night too <3 You know me and my sunsets! It was the perfect end to a perfect day.
The next day it started to cool down a little so we did some hiking, wildflower picking, and kept our eyes out for bears ;) It was too funny every time a twig would snap the kids would yell out thinking it was a bear!
And no post of mine is complete without a little sweetness in it <3 We sure enjoyed our sweet girls Hazel & Millie <3
Then the rain came along with the rest of our friends. But just because we didn't have ideal weather doesn't mean that we didn't have fun. The rain would come and go so we still had some decent weather. Oh and the kids loved the mud. The moms, not so much haha!
We played games and cards, went on walks, made and ate lots of yummy food. We sat around the campfire a lot and then we would stay up till 2 am laughing and telling stories.
We listened to all the little kids scream and laugh and make their very own memories of camping at Lost Lake <3 The kids didn't even know that it was raining, or they barely noticed. They were out playing all day. The only time we would see them is when they were hungry, needed a s'more, or wanted some hot cocoa to drink.
Alan & I went on a few atv rides on the trails and around the lake. Luckily we made it back right before a downpour!
We had such a wonderful time and I know that we all made some great memories together. I can't wait to do it again! It was the perfect summer camping trip with some of my favorite people :)
Thank you so much for stopping by, and thank you to my sweet camping friends, I love you all <3 Have a sweet and happy day :)
