Our Greatest Adventure: Levi Mark

Well it is hard for me to believe that a week ago I was in the hospital in labor and about to deliver our little man into the world. Giving birth was one of the craziest, most amazing experiences of my life to date. I still have a hard time wrapping my head around the events of that day, it all happened so fast.  I was right at 39 weeks and scheduled to be induced the day after Labor Day.…

My Last Week Pregnant

 I am currently living my last week as a pregnant lady… I cannot even wrap my mind around that. It sounds silly since I have been pregnant for nine months, but the thought that we will have our little man in our arms in about a week just blows my mind. For the long time we waited for this moment, it has seemed like my time pregnant has just flown by. If our little man has not decided to join this…

Nursery Reveal

Many of you have been asking how Little Man’s nursery is coming along and if I have it all ready for him. I have OFFICIALLY deemed the nursery as COMPLETE! It is ready and waiting for our little man to make his arrival. It is truly an idea turned to life. I had this idea in my head for a long time and I am thrilled with the way it turned out!  When I first found out we were pregnant,…

Freezer Meals for the Instant Pot

So I guess you could say that nesting has finally taken over… The past two weekends I’ve spent cooking and preparing endless freezer meals for post-baby life. Like so much so, my husband had to have an intervention. Thankfully he has faith in my ability to cook post-baby, even if I am skeptical. Either way, we are set with at least two weeks or more of meals in the freezer. Some of the meals are ready to bake or heat…

Pregnancy Update: Maternity Photos

As a blogger, photographer, and creative mind, it should come as no surprise that photos are a big deal to me. I love having the big (and little) moments of our lives captured whether it be with a professional DSLR or even with the camera on a phone. I regularly make it a habit to try and keep up on yearly photo books, books from our trips, and especially photo books that document the important steps in our life.  Naturally,…

The Secrets to Kale Salads + Kale Berry Salad with Granola Recipe

If you are anything like me, you don’t necessarily like to buy into the fads and trends of the times. Fads and trends come and go sometimes quicker than we can blink an eye. Kale has seemed like such a fad food, albeit I know it is healthy for you. But I feel like we keep finding kale in places that it doesn’t belong. Either way, I was hesitant to jump on the kale train but I found a couple…

Pregnancy Update: Gestational Diabetes & Homestretch

Well, I am in the homestretch of this pregnancy and I honestly cannot even believe it! Where did all of the time go!? I am currently sitting at 33 weeks and A LOT has happened since I last updated y’all at 28 weeks.  Gestational Diabetes I went through my three hour glucose test and failed, which means I got the phone call that I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. Cue a whole host of emotions from anger to disbelieve to…

Chicken Ortega Casserole

One of my favorite meals is any meal I grew up eating. That feeling of nostalgia as you take that first bite, it takes you back to when you were a kid. I always spent summers at my Grandma Nonny’s house. I can remember cooking and baking with her, playing cards in bed, sitting on the porch and looking out on the lake below. Some of my best childhood memories took place with my Nonny and some of my favorite…

Tyson Foods Launches New Animal Welfare Initiative

** While this post has been sponsored on behalf of Tyson Foods, all opinions expressed are that solely of Prairie Californian. ** Growing up the daughter of a butcher, I grew up with an intimate knowledge of where the meat we eat comes from. It wasn’t until I started school and began talking to other kids about what their parents did that I realized, not everybody has the opportunity to be so close to food production as I did growing…

Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Pork tenderloins have become one of my new favorite things to cook, especially for a weeknight meal. They are quick to cook and still pack a ton of flavor. I have always enjoyed stuffing pork tenderloins, but haven’t spent a ton of time just cooking them to slice and enjoy.  I decided to cook these pork tenderloins on our Green Mountain pellet grill, which by the way, I absolutely adore. The Butcher Man, my dad, gifted us the grill as…
