What We Ate in Reno, NV {with 4 meals under $10!!}

Last weekend we {myself, Mr. Hungry Harps and a couple of our very best friends} headed over the Sierra Mountains to Reno, Nevada. We gambled, we drank, we got into some shenanigans and most importantly we ate - you know, to stay energized for the whole adventure. Check out these local(ish) gems we found and love!!

1. The Awful Awful Burger from The Nugget {not John Ascuaga's)
$7.99 for a 1/2lb Awful Awful Cheeseburger and 1lb of French Fries
The Nugget - 233 N Virginia Street in Reno, NV 89431

We were starving by the time we reached Reno and The Nugget was our first stop. This place is the definition of a hole in the wall, complete with no website. However, it's the kind of place I love. Non-assuming, a little dim and full of memories. Mr. Hungry Harps and I shared one of these burgers because we couldn't rationally order 2 pounds of fries and expect to finish them all. As it turned out - ordering one was perfect. We split the burger and the Mr. finished the fries off. I can't believe we ate this much food for 3.99 each! If you are all about a good deal - this is it. The burger tastes like the one you find on the bbq on Sunday evening and the fries are suprisingly awesome. I am in love and will keep going to this establishment for my Downtown Reno Burger Needs!

Baby Food Made Easy with Cuisinart Baby Food Maker {with a chance to win your own!} #HomemadeBabyFood

This post is sponsored by Cuisinart, but my immense love for their Baby Food Maker is all my own!!

One of the best parts about being a parent is feeding my kiddos. I seriously love watching them eat, knowing that they are getting packed full of nutrients. I've been blessed with 4 kids that are all very healthy eaters which makes mealtime a blast, they are willing to try almost anything that I put on the table. I think a huge reason for their willingness to eat such a variety of foods is that we've always fed them whatever we would be eating. It all starts when they are babies, making them homemade healthy and easy baby food recipes. I prefer making my own baby food, instead of purchasing it from the store, because I know for certain what the ingredients are. If I want to feed my babies carrots and brown rice, I can be sure that all they are eating are carrots and brown rice. No additives, no preservatives - just 100% goodness. One of my favorite sites to visit for healthy and easy baby food recipes is Cuisinart's Family & Health page. Honestly, it's a great resource for parents wanting to ensure their babies are getting the best nutrition possible.

Now, let's talk more about those carrots and brown rice...


I used to have to steam these carrots on the stove before turning them into baby food using my handy dandy Cuisinart food processor. However, things are a changing and Cuisinart has made making baby food SO much easier! Let me introduce you to the Cuisinart Baby Food Maker and Bottle Warmer...
