You guys are like me. If it can be made quickly AND be delicious, we’re all in! This 15-minute Garlic Lemon Shrimp is simply that. The secret is to use the best quality shrimp you can find since it’s the star of the show. ⭐️ I got mine from @milkandeggscom and love that it comes straight to my front door without having to lift a finger. But seriously, especially when it comes to seafood, it’s worth it to spend the extra few bucks and get the best there is. _ This dish is perfection on its own, served over pasta or rice, or w/ some grilled veggies. I know you’re gonna love it and can’t wait for you to try! _ Grab the link in my profile, and for all my SoCal Dishers, use the code “Lifeisbutadish” for 20% off your first order! #partner _ http://www.lifeisbutadish.com/15-minute-garlic-lemon-shrimp/ _ #foods4thought #foodwinewomen #foodfeedblog #foodandwine #fwhealthy #feedfeed #f52grams #freshfinds #thekitchn #buzzfeedfood #beautifulcuisines #buzzfeast #bhgfood #huffposttaste #marthafood #todayfood #yahoofood #bareaders #foodgawker #thenewhealthy #rslove #cookit #shareyourtable #thecookfeed #shrimp #healthy #milkandeggs #wellandgoodeats #wellandgood

This is my favorite way to dice an avocado. 🥑 I’ve been told numerous times that this trick has changed lives! 🤣 No more stabbing a sharp knife into the pit to remove it and risk slicing your palm! 😫What’s it called, avocado hand? No thanks! Give it a try! And if you’ve tried this and it works, leave a 🥑 below! 👇🏼#lifeisbutadish

I moved across the country 13 years ago, and 3 years later married into a family that feels like they were chosen. Calling them my in-laws feels distant and strange. I’m lucky enough to have gained a west coast family complete with parents, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins and more! _ Today we celebrate one of my west coast sisters. 🎉 My long time partner in crime, friend, mentor, cereal entrepreneur and mommy sounding board. _ @stacyharper today we celebrate you and all your greatness. Thank you for always being my biggest cheerleader, personal PR agency, and teammate in life. 👯‍♀️ I made you your favorite... Yellow Cake w/ Chocolate Frosting. From a box, just the way you like it. Happy birthday, try to enjoy it. Even just a little. 🎈 _ And if you want this semi-homemade recipe it’s been on the blog forever.

Three years ago if you told me that I would be interviewed for a podcast I would have 💯 laughed in your face. Yet here we are! Last week I had the honor of being interviewed by Anna Goldstein of @selfinthecity - a certified business and life coach who helps people make money doing what they love. ♥️ I mean, is there any greater job?!? _ Anna and I actually go waaaay back. We’ve known each other almost our entire lives and also went to high school together. So being on my first ever podcast with her made it extra special. _ In this episode I talk about how I started my blog, how I monetize it, how I grew a loyal Instagram following and my favorite part - how I overcame my fear of being in front of the camera! _ I’ll give you a hint... It’s because of you guys. My Dishers! So while you’re doing dishes, in the car, or folding laundry, go ahead and give this episode a listen. I hope you enjoy it and as always, thank you so much for your ongoing love and support. ♥️#lifeisbutadish _ Link in profile - http://annagoldstein.com/lifeisbutadish

I took this picture back in August on the night before Zoe’s first day of kindergarten. ✏️ She and I had a special date planned. We walked to get ice cream after dinner, just the two of us.🍦 _ I remember taking this photo, thinking how big she seemed and how excited I was for her to start at a new school and discover new things! ⭐️ _ Tomorrow is Zoe’s last day of kindergarten. In the blink of an eye it passed by and I actually cannot even believe it. It’s stupid and cliche but holy balls it goes by so quickly. Each year flies by faster and faster and I can’t help but think back to the never ending days of early motherhood with the witching hours and sleepless nights. A good reminder that it’s all temporary. All of it. The good and the bad. Constantly changing, constantly evolving. But it’s all important and it’s all part of the journey. _ I couldn’t be more proud of this (not-so-little) little girl if I tried. 💜 And I’m making a promise to myself and to her, to take advantage of the long summer days to JUST BE. To connect, walk to get ice cream more often, skinny dip at night and sleep in because we can. _ Summer, I see you. And we’re ready. 😎 #lifeisbutadish #imnotcryingyourecrying
