Bagels with Smoked Salmon, Capers and Red Onions

I love super simple Spring/summer recipes that are good for breakfast and/or lunch. While at an event I saw someone enjoying this delicious treat and I knew I had to try it. While at the grocery store yesterday, I picked up all of the items and today was the day! I love how super simple this recipe is as well as being delicious. The next time I plan on using vegetable cream cheese and possibly adding slices of tomatoes as well. I think this is my new summer go to recip.

Ingredients:
2 Bagels ( used wheat) I toasted the bagels-optional
1/2 tablespoon of Capers ( for each bagels- this is optional)
Red Onions (As much as you like- try to slice them thin)
1 package of cream cheese ( I used plain. However, vegetable works great as well)


Directions: 
Slice the bagels in half horizontally and spread 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese over the bottom half of each bagel. Arrange 2 slices of smoked salmon over the cream cheese, add red onions and 1/2 tablespoon of capers to each bagel and place the remaining bagel halves on top. ( you could also enjoy this as an open sandwich like I did. )

Have you tried smoke salmon on the bagel before?

Framed (Week 20 of 52)


As football season is fast approaching, I'm starting to realize how fast time goes by. This picture was taken a couple years ago. No matter where we are Michael always finds a football and gets to work. He loves playing with other children and improving his skills. 

The picture below was taken last week at our community park. This picture captures him playing again with friends. ( I was trying to sneaky taking this picture)

Southern Fried Whitings Recipe



Seeing how I don't eat chicken. It was only right to pair my baked mac and cheese and baked sweet potatoes with Southern Fried Whitings. This recipe is definitely on my "goto" list. We usually do our own thing aka throwing our favorite seasonings in a bowl. However, it's something about this seasoning combination that had me going back for seconds.

Falling In Love With Homegoods

The other day I stopped by my local HomeGoods and I started to wish I was on a free shopping spree. ( a girl could dream right?!) I didn't purchase any of the items below except for the ones in my cart. I thought it would be great to share with you guys items I was drooling over while at the store. I usually don't go to HomeGoods often. However, everytime I leave out of that store, I'm looking forward to my next trip back. 

I thought this would be great to use as a vanity.

$200. For all of this awesomeness ( we have no room it **insert sad face**) 

Yup, I think it's time a have a little princess with all of this cuteness.

I was in love with this organizer


I left the store with four items. Washi tape, serving Tray, two storage baskets. 

Any great finds at HomeGoods lately? 




Motherhood (Week 19 of 52)






Motherhood is the gift that keeps on giving. Even though I never thought in life that I would only have one child. I have accepted that and I'm trying to hold on to every moment with my little guy which I'm sure sucks at times for him. LOL

Even though I'm sure it's annoying to him. That I always try to capture life's moments. I hope that one day he can appreciate it. 

I really enjoying teaching/ showing my son how to properly save. Wants/ needs, how to cook, sew etc. growing up my parents didn't teach me about money. I had to "live and learn". I'm learning that motherhood is all what you make, and I'm enjoying every minute of it.

Black and White (week 18 of 52)


I'm trying to learn how to get better at taking pictures of objects. Besides being currently obsessed with silver. I also found the little vase at my local Habitat For Humanity Store. 

Anywho, Any new finds?
