One of the things I love most about scalloped potatoes is that it’s a delicious MAKE-AHEAD side dish that can instantly be transformed into a MAKE-AHEAD main dish with the addition of some chopped ham!
If you’re looking for a hearty winter meal (or yummy potato side dish) this is the recipe for you!
While I’m not trying to rush my most favorite holiday away, I also know that by tomorrow evening, some of you might be stranded in your kitchen with piles and piles of delicious Thanksgiving leftovers — and no desire to spend hours in the kitchen dealing with them all.
Today, I’m sharing a bunch of simple recipes and ideas I use to repurpose our Thanksgiving leftovers!
Taco casserole is one of my favorite quick-meal options for busy weeknights, and the kids love that they can help.
Since I usually have taco meat ready to go in the freezer, I can easily have this entire meal ready for the oven in less than 10 minutes — which means I can have dinner on the table in 30 minutes!
Today’s recipe is a family favorite, and I’m asked for the recipe almost every time I make these pizza sliders.
They are absolutely delicious, super frugal, and so ridiculously simple to make… thankfully, my family doesn’t get tired of me making them over and over again 🙂
This time of year, I’m ALWAYS looking for ways to incorporate our garden-grown zucchini into anything and everything… and today’s recipe for three cheese lasagna roll-ups are one of my trickiest hiding places for shredded zucchini.
They are so yummy, they might even fool your pickiest eaters!
Although slow cooker meals are often perceived as those “comfort foods” we tend to make in Fall or Winter months, I use my slow cooker ALL year long!
Today’s recipe is a perfect slow cooker meal for Spring or Summer — it’s fast, it’s easy, and it won’t heat up your kitchen!
The recipe I’m sharing today is one of our family favorites — even the kids gobble it up!
If you’re looking for a new baked chicken recipe with simple ingredients, minimal prep work, a yummy crispy shell, and juicy meat with every bite, look no further!
Since my kids LOVE rice, I’m always searching for new rice recipes to try. In a recent search, I learned that wild rice is very nutritious and packed with protein! I experimented with a few different recipes and am excited to share this chicken and wild rice stew with you today.
If you’re looking for an excuse to eat wild rice, a new recipe to add to your winter menu rotation, or a delicious way to get your kids to eat a few more veggies, this recipe is for you.
Our entire family loves the frozen, pre-packaged Chicken Cordon Bleu entrees. However, since one of the “healthier habits” I’m working on in 2016 is to eat less processed meats, I’ve been making this extremely simple Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole instead.
The results are 2 thumbs up from Dave, a voluntary compliment about how yummy my food is from Nora, and a cheesy grin from Simon — I’d say that’s a winning recipe!
Today’s recipe is a fabulously simple meal for busy weeknights! It’s also a great dish to bring to a potluck, give to a new mom, or just stockpile in your own freezer.
Now you have no excuse to let any of that leftover Thanksgiving turkey go to waste!
Today’s recipe is another one of those ridiculously simple “non recipes” that I almost feel silly posting here on my blog.
If you love a good slow-cooker pork or chicken recipe, and have a little extra cranberry sauce to use up after the holidays, you’ll definitely want to give this Cranberry Pork (or Chicken) recipe a try!
While I would never consider myself a “master chef” or even a “really amazing cook”, I do enjoy being in the kitchen and trying new recipes and ideas.
I also like finding simple solutions to improve the taste of my food… and since Dave and I are hosting our first Thanksgiving dinner this year, I figured it was the perfect time to share one of my super simple tips to assure my turkey meat comes out extra juicy every time!
Today’s recipe is so ridiculously simple I almost don’t even consider it a “recipe”.
Not only does it taste great, it requires virtually no prep work of any kind, and there is almost no clean up!
I’m excited to share today’s recipe for 10-minute lasagna (yes, I really did time myself!)
It’s so simple and quick to throw together — perfect for rushed school nights!
With Dave back in school again, I’ve resurrected several of my most simplified weeknight meal ideas in attempts to get dinner on the table with all 3 kids scrambling around the kitchen!
These chicken quesadillas are definitely a family favorite — especially for me as I can get them on the table in 10-15 minutes flat!
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!
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!
