Food blogging has changed since I became a mom. I used to plan out every meal, take pictures of every step of the cooking process and made tons of notes along the way. Now, I don't even cook the meal I want to share... #lifegoals

I love an easy Pasta Salad when I need to take a side to a BBQ or picnic.  I got this recipe from my girlfriend Rachel years ago and I've stuck with it ever since.  

It's the easiest thing.  Buy your favorite boxed pasta salad and then add your favorite veggie...

Fall is coming.  

I'm in that in-between phase where I'm so excited for sweaters and pumpkins but sad to see summer go bye-bye.  Today felt and smelled like fall.
