I recently discovered that in over 4 years of blogging, I have yet to share my most favorite, super delicious, tastes like you spent all day in the kitchen brownies (that just so happen to start with a boxed mix!)
If you like chocolate, caramel, and ‘easy’, you’ll LOVE these brownies!
Most of you know that I am NOT a foodie. I’ve always been somewhat intimidated by the thought of making a food or healthy-living goal because that’s just not “my thing”.
However, by keeping things REALLY simple and focusing on a couple very specific (yet do-able) changes to incorporate into my current diet, I haven’t felt even the slightest twinge of panic or intimidation — and I’m excited to share my 2 new healthier habits with you today!
For several months now, I’ve been on the look-out for a lettuce salad that can be made ahead (without wilting) and enjoyed as leftovers (without getting soggy). I didn’t think I would ever find a recipe… until last month!
Not only can this salad be made ahead and enjoyed for days, it can also be made from pretty much any salad-type ingredients you have in the house — oh, and it tastes amazing!
Over Christmas break, I resurrected an “oldie but goodie” recipe that I hadn’t made in ages.
Not only does this recipe have SUPER simple ingredients, take minutes to throw together, and taste great as leftovers, it’s also a really easy meal for kids to help prepare.
If you’re looking for an ultra-simple, no-bake, last-minute appetizer to take to an upcoming holiday party (or really any gathering throughout the year) I would highly recommend this “recipe”.
You won’t disapoint anyone’s taste buds and, better yet, you won’t spend all day in the kitchen!
If the next few weeks at your house look anything like the next few weeks at our house, you’ll be hosting and/or attending MANY holiday parties. And what’s a great party without great food?
I know there are hundreds of “holiday recipe round-up” posts out there right now — so I’m not going to share specific recipes with you today. Instead, I’m going to share some of the things I personally consider when I’m bringing a dish to pass.
If you’re looking for a super simple, last-minute appetizer idea to bring to a holiday party — or just a really quick side dish for dinner tonight, this recipe should satisfy!
Pasta is one of my favorite comfort foods. Thankfully, Dave and Nora share my love for this super frugal, super simple weeknight meal.
However, I recently had the desire to try substituting Spaghetti Squash for pasta in some of our favorite recipes… and today, I’m sharing our thoughts on this healthier swap!
Baking Powder Drop Biscuits were a favorite of mine growing up — and now that I’m the cook, I realize how super simple they are to make (not to mention how easily they can adapt to many allergy restrictions).
If you’re looking for an impossibly easy dessert recipe that everyone will love, give these baking powder drop biscuits a try!
By now, most of you know that I’m a huge advocate for keeping our deep freezer fully stocked in an effort to save time in the kitchen and money at the grocery store. However, if I had to pick my #1 biggest time + money saver in the kitchen… today’s tip would be it!

When it comes to comfort foods like homemade macaroni and cheese, simple is often better… right?
Today, I’m sharing another super simple slow cooker recipe that literally takes 5 minutes to toss the ingredients in. A few hours later, dinner is served!

A couple months ago, a reader shared a delicious pasta recipe with me. I tweaked it a bit, simplified it A LOT, and came up with a super simple, very delicious Chicken, Bacon, Pesto Pasta that even Nora devoured!

If you or your kids are anything like Nora (with an intense love of cheese and mashed potatoes) this recipe will certainly be a big hit with them.
It’s SO simple, it uses basic ingredients, it can be made ahead, and it travels really well. All winning recipe qualities in my opinion!
Today’s recipe definitely fits the bill for super simple, family-friendly, and budget-friendly — and although I’m often told that meatloaf is just too much work, I almost guarantee that you can get this meal on the table with less than 15 minutes of hands-on work.
