Garlic & Parmesan Roasted Potatoes

These were invented by my daughter. We were watching Chopped one night, and my twins decided that they wanted to cook dinner and have their own version of Chopped. We joked that we need to have pizza on speed dial that night. After a week of planning, it was decided […]

French Toast

Growing up we always used sandwich bread to make French toast. No matter how long you let it cook, it was always soggy in the middle. The only time I want soggy bread is when I am trying to remove a splinter from my fingers (It works I promise!). Then […]

Enchilada Stuffed Bell Peppers

My family loves tacos! And while I can get sick of tacos a lot faster than they can, I do love Mexican food. Or maybe it’s Tex-Mex. I am not 100% sure. What I am sure about is that this has lots of veggies and fruit and packed with flavor! […]

Red Beans & Rice

For anyone that knows me, knows I am not a fan of spicy foods or sausage. Now sausage is okay only as a breakfast sausage or ground sausage that will be mixed with my cornbread stuffing. Only two ways I will eat it. Now with that being said, you are […]

Gingerbread Cookies

Every year around the holidays you start to see those kits that you build your own gingerbread house, train, village. By the end of the season you can have your very own gingerbread town. As fun as these kits are, I have two problems with them, 1) never enough candy […]

Sweet Potato Hash

I could come up with a story about how I never had a sweet potato until I moved and that would be true. But, honestly, I started making these when I needed to feed my kids and this is all I had in the pantry. Not going to lie some […]

Five Minute Bread

With three growing kids and a husband who love peanut butter sandwiches, we can go through a loaf of bread in days. That’s just during the school week, I am not even talking about when they are home for vacations or summer time. Growing kids can eat you out of […]

Basil & Mustard Skirt Steak

I am a steak and potato girl. I love all kinds of steak! I do not hate on steak! But again feeding a family of 5 with 3 growing children, the price of steak is not always something we can do. Let’s face it steak can get expensive. So we […]
