Last month I wrote a “favorite things” blog post on a whim. It was fun to share the book I was reading, my favorite movie, podcast and tv series and other things I am currently loving. The response was great and I got so many messages from readers asking for more. So, I’m excited to announce the Super Mom’s Favorite Things will become a monthly series! AND volume 2 is up today. I even included our new favorite snack from @artisantropic! Sooooo yummy! Click on the link in my bio or swipe up in stories and let me know what categories you’d like to see me add in January!

This week has been hard. Sunday would have been my Nana’s 95th birthday and it was also the first anniversary of the passing of one of my best friends, Brooke. 
This was the photo that hung in my Nana’s living room. She would show it to everyone that visited her.  She told me she would stare at it and smile every single day. She was so proud of all of her great-granddaughters. 🥰 I’m so grateful that my girls were able to know what an amazing woman she really was, even if she was taken from us a little earlier than expected. So while I try to reflect on the good times, I’m still trying to accept that she and my friend are both gone, too soon. It’s been a hard week, but I will get past this and keep living my best life... that’s what they would have wanted. How do you deal with grief?

Happy National Cookie Day! Where are my caramel macchiato fans at?! Super Dad and I will rarely order anything else when visiting our favorite local coffee shops. So when we were trying to come up with the perfect cookie flavor to celebrate today, I had to try these caramel stuffed macchiato chocolate chip cookies. And let me tell you, they came out SO good. Head to the blog for the full recipe (link is in my bio or swipe up in stories). What kind of cookies are you celebrating with today?

I say it all the time. We may have rescued Elle from @bigdogranchrescue, but we needed her just as much, if not more, than she needed us. I can’t imagine our family without her. Does your family have any pets? I’d love to hear about them and how they changed your life. .

We visited @treasurecoastsq last week to remind our girls that the true spirit of the holidays is about giving. #sponsored With their lists in hand, they went to their favorite stores (Claires, Spencer Gifts, Forever 21 and Justice), picking out the perfect gifts for their favorite people.They did such a great job of choosing each present without going over their budget and the only thing they got for themselves was hot cocoa and a snack from Starbucks! On our way out, we took some pictures by the Santa Photo Experience, located in the Old Navy Court and someone special snuck up behind them to get in the pictures. They had no idea that Santa was standing just a couple of feet behind them!  There’s something about the holiday decor at Treasure Coast Square that always gets us in the Christmas spirit. Our next trip will be to drop off some donated toys at The Salvation Army Angel Tree table! What is your favorite part of the holidays? #holidayatsimon

Where are my Frozen fans at?! #ad My girls have been fans since day 1, so it’s not a shock that most of their Christmas wish list is Frozen themed. When we found this @HuffyBicycles Disney Frozen EZ Build Bike at Walmart, Falynn couldn’t "let it go" and she received a Christmas gift early! This bike has so many fun features! It even plays Frozen sounds! It’s available in 12” or 16” and features Elsa, Anna and Olaf. It’s perfect for young riders! Head to Walmart to purchase a Huffy bike for your little one this holiday season. They make the best big reveal gifts for the holidays and you’re sure to get tons of nice "warm hugs!" This bike is ON SALE now -- link in bio and stories to shop.  #GiveTheRide #LiveTheRide #AvailableAtWalmart .

Falynn has always been our little fashionista #ad But now that she's older, she's discovering her own sense of style. She prefers shorts to dresses, hats to headbands and would call her own style "swagalicious," if you ask her. She was super excited to receive this new #BMR1959 Ken doll! She must have spent 15 minutes describing each piece of his outfit. She really got a kick out of their matching hairdos! I love watching her enjoy @Barbie as much as I did as a kid! BMR1959™ is perfect for the holidays! These bold, fully posable dolls capture the diverse looks found in today’s streetwear culture. From high-low fashion mixes, re-imagined ‘90s gear to juxtaposed patterns, textures, and silhouettes, this curated ensemble is all about personal expression and style. Is #Barbie a staple in your home as well? .

While today is National Taco Day, we’ve decided to share one of our favorite taco recipes. Technically, it’s not a taco, it’s a tostada, but it’s just as delicious whether it’s in a folded tortilla shell or on top of a flat corn tostada. Lime and cilantro shrimp with a zesty sauce will wow your tastebuds and will be a huge hit for your family!

The first time I made this dish for my family, I was shocked at the reaction. My youngest, who swears she doesn’t like seafood, ate more shrimp than I knew her tiny body could handle. My oldest kept talking about the “explosion of flavors” in her mouth. It was as though she had just left one of those fancy cooking shows. I’m pretty sure my husband ate at least 6 and was still asking for more. So when you find a recipe like this lime and cilantro shrimp tostada recipe, you have to make it often and share it with everyone.

Looking for a family friendly dish packed with flavor? This lime and cilantro shrimp tostada recipe is exactly what your tastebuds have been waiting for.

Lime and Cilantro Shrimp Tostadas

The perfect flavor combination of lime, cilantro and fresh shrimp, all on top of a corn tostada.
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Mexican

Ingredients

  • 1 lb shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 pkg corn tostadas

Shrimp Marinade

  • 3 limes juiced
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • lime zest
  • salt

Slaw

  • 2 cups cabbage shredded
  • ¼ red onion chopped thin
  • ¼ cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 haas avocado cubed
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt

Sauce

  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt
  • lime zest
  • 1 tbsp paprika

Instructions

  • Whisk together all ingredients for the shrimp marinade. Add shrimp and mix until shrimp is fully covered. Cover bowl and marinate in refrigerator for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine all slaw ingredients in another bowl. Cover and refrigerate.
  • In a small bowl, add all sauce ingredients and whisk until combined.
  • Preheat pan or grill on medium heat. Grill shrimp until pink and fully cooked.
  • Place tostada on plate. Top with slaw, 3-4 shrimp, drizzle sauce and top with chopped cilantro.

So you may be wondering why we chose shrimp. Well, up until a few weeks ago, I was a pescatarian. I had given up meat for over two years and shrimp was one of those ingredients that we tried to fit into meals at least twice a month.So aside from our favorite dijon shrimp scampi recipe, this lime and cilantro shrimp tostada is at the top of our family’s request list.

It makes a great family dinner because it’s super quick to make and gives everyone the option of building their own tostada. My kids love to “cook” and build their own meals. So you can set out the tostadas, the slaw, the shrimp and the sauce and allow them to make their own. I also put out some sliced lime wedges because my family likes theirs extra sour.

If you are a vegetarian, I also recommend trying our lentil taco recipe. The avocado and salsa fresca is so yummy! It’s every bit of happiness in your mouth, without the meat and perfect for National Taco Day, or any day, really.

What are your plans for National Taco Day? Comment below and let us know!

This incredible lime and cilantro shrimp tostada recipe is packed with flavor, kid friendly and perfect for any day of the year!
