With the impending arrival of a new baby any day now, I’ve been asked over and over again what types of meals I’m making ahead to alleviate the need for as much cooking later on.
Today, I’m sharing that list!
A couple weeks ago, we ended up with LOTS of extra baked potatoes after a party we had at our house… and there was no way I was letting them go to waste.
Today’s recipe (if you can even call it a recipe) is a super simple, super yummy way to repurpose leftover baked potatoes — and best of all, it’s something you can easily make ahead of time for a busy weeknight meal!
Pie is one of my all-time favorite foods — and I’d be hard-pressed to find a variety I didn’t love!
So today, since it’s prime “pie making season”, I figured it was time for me to compile a list of some of my most favorite pies — just in case any of you share my love for this delicious food!
Since Nora enjoys cooking and helping out in the kitchen SO much, I figured it might be fun to start posting a few SUPER simple recipes that not only taste great, but are easy for little hands to help with.
Todays very first “Kids in the Kitchen” post is a fabulously simple recipe for personal pan pizzas… and it just so happens to taste really good too!
I’ve been on a muffin-making kick lately — so when I realized my rhubarb plant had plenty of rhubarb for muffins, I flipped through my files and found my rhubarb muffin recipe.
If you’re looking for a quick and simple recipe to use up some rhubarb, give this one a try!
Although we are fortunate not to have any known food allergies or sensitivities in our home, we do have many friends who can’t eat certain foods. Because of this, I’m often on the lookout for allergy-friendly recipes that actually taste good.
Today’s chocolate cake recipe is one of those allergy-friendly desserts that definitely still tastes really good. Oh, and it’s super easy too!
You all know how much I LOVE to systematize things so they take less time and run more efficiently… right?
Well today, I’m sharing a little more about Blue Apron — a fabulous meal planning service that might just completely simplify, streamline, and systematize your weekly meals!
Today’s recipe for Blondie Bars came from my sister…
I’m not sure where her variation of this recipe came from; but I do know they are really good, really easy, make a nice big batch, and freeze well — so they are essentially the perfect recipe to share here on my blog!
While I don’t particularly love the process of meal planning every week, I also know that if I don’t make some sort of general plan, our weeknights will be extra crazy and stressed.
Thankfully, I have a whole arsenal of go-to recipes that I can make at a moments notice as I always have the ingredients in the house. Today, I’m sharing a bunch of our favorite go-to meals.
After I realized finger Jell-O was one of the only foods Nora would eat when she was younger, I tried a boatload of different recipes until I landed on this one… and I’ve been making it ever since.
It’s super quick, simple, and very sturdy — which makes it easy to cut into fun shapes and pieces.
Not only is this Chocolate Peanut Butter pie completely delicious, it also earned me “Mom Of The Year” because I let Nora help, and “Wife Of The Year” because three of Dave’s favorite foods are chocolate, peanut butter, and pie
Not bad for a simple no-bake pie!
I have a confession to make — I’ve actually NEVER made a cake from scratch before about a month ago!
I’ve always loved the taste (and ease) of boxed cake mixes — and I’ll certainly continue to use boxed mixes, but I’m also happy to have found this SUPER SIMPLE from-scratch chocolate cake recipe!
A couple weeks ago, Nora helped me make a pie for “pi day”… and wouldn’t you know, our compilation of super simple ingredients ended up tasting REALLY good!
If you’re looking for a refreshing no-bake dessert for tonight (or right now), give this triple layer pie a try.
Lately, I’ve heard SO much hype about what our children should and should not be eating… and I’ve honestly just started to completely tune it out.
I know I’m not a dietitian, but I will say that micro-managing the food my kids eat each day is VERY far down on my list of daily concerns. Here’s why…
These roasted carrots are SO simple to make, require almost zero hands-on time, and they can even be made in the microwave if you’re short on time! Oh yeah, and they taste amazing!
If you’re looking for a simple side dish you can pop in the oven with whatever else you’re making, I’d highly recommend giving this recipe a whirl
I eat a MASSIVE amount of hard boiled eggs — but I don’t actually “boil” them.
This fool-proof oven-baked method is so simple, I can honestly say that I don’t think I’ll ever actually BOIL a hard boiled egg again!
This super simple recipe is actually one of Dave’s recipes — from when he lived on his own for a year before we were married
Pizza Sammies (as we call them) are definitely a “step up” from traditional grilled cheese sandwiches, they are most likely a lot healthier than traditional pizza, and they make a great lunch, dinner, or even a protein-packed snack when you’re in a hurry.
When it comes to cooking fish at home, Dave and I are FAR from experts. I guess I always assumed cooking fish inside would make our house smelly, or that it was too complicated, or even too expensive.
Well, over the past few months, I’ve put all those fish myths behind me and have been experimenting with cooking more fish at home… and today’s Simple Seven-Minute Salmon recipe has been a big hit in our house!
I shared a picture of these French Toast Sticks on Facebook a couple weeks ago and immediately started getting questions about what they were, how I made them, if there was a recipe, etc. etc.
I honestly didn’t think French Toast Sticks would have been such a conversation topic, but since they are SO quick, simple, and easy, I figured it would be a good recipe to share here on the blog!
I’ve always LOVED making my own bread… I love the feel of the dough between my fingers, I love the smell wafting from the oven, and of course, I love the taste of it. However, after Nora was born, I just stopped making the time for bread baking.
Since then, I have come up with a super quick, super easy, nearly fool-proof way to enjoy homemade bread with almost no effort… as of today, my “secret” is out!
