Kids in the Kitchen: S’Mores Nachos #Recipe

S'Mores Nachos |

Last week Colin told us he wanted to make s’mores over a fire but it’s been WAY too hot (and far too dry) to have a fire so my husband suggested we try to make s’mores nachos.  A few days after I’d purchased the ingredients we needed, the boys and I threw these puppies together! […]

Kids in the Kitchen: Quiche

Bacon and Parmesan Quiche |

This week my husband took off a little early to go fishing with my dad so the kids and I were on our own for dinner.  I really (REALLY) considered ordering pizza or Chinese food, but I resisted.  Instead, we made Bacon and Parmesan Quiche. I started by cutting strips of bacon into small pieces […]

Quick and Easy Dirty Rice #Recipe

Quick and Easy Dirty Rice |

I am always looking for dinner recipes that are easy to make and delicious to eat.  When I told my husband that I wanted to add “Dirty Rice” to the dinner menu, he looked at me like I had four heads and told me he didn’t like it.  But you know what?  I added it […]

Kids in the Kitchen: Cheeseburger Eggrolls

Cheeseburger Eggrolls |

A few days ago I saw a recipe for Bacon Cheeseburger Eggrolls.  I knew they’d be something the boys would enjoy making AND eating!  So when I went shopping, I picked up what we would need. I used:  1/4 Green Bell Pepper (diced finely) 1/4 cup Onion (diced finely) 1 lb. Hamburger Meat Shredded Cheddar […]

Pico de Gallo #Recipe

Pico de Gallo |

My sister-in-law makes this super-duper-awesome-amazing Pico de Gallo (or so I’m told – I don’t actually eat it!).  So when we had our last family ‘reunion’ a few years ago, I took note of the ingredients, watched her make it and thought I could handle it.  I was wrong – HORRIBLY wrong.  I attempted to […]

Oven Roasted Corn #Recipe

Oven Roasted Corn | SensiblySara

When C and I were at the grocery store earlier this week, he said he wanted corn.  And when it’s 5 for $1, who am I to deny him!? I love corn on the cob – roasted, boiled, it doesn’t matter.  Just the thought of the sweet crispness of corn makes me drool!  However, my […]

Macaroni Salad #Recipe

Macaroni Salad |

It’s that time of year again – time for picnics and BBQs.  If your experience is anything like mine, someone always makes a macaroni salad. Recently, I volunteered to bring the macaroni salad for a surprise party we were attending.  However, I’ve never actually made one!  After looking through a ton of different recipes, I […]

Roasted Veggie Lasagna #Recipe

A few weeks ago I saw Julie from The Little Kitchen post about her Roasted Zucchini and Eggplant Lasagna.  It sounded delicious … except for the eggplant.  I knew I wanted to recreate it, and that’s just what I did. My kids were very skeptical about this lasagna because ours usually comes out of the […]

My husband and kids love poptarts, but I don’t really care for the store-bought varieties.  But these are awesome!  These poptarts are easy […]

Mountain Dew Cupcakes #Recipe

Mountain Dew Cupcakes |

Probably about a year ago, I found this great recipe for Mountain Dew Cupcakes (original recipe at Nothing But Country).  My husband and his co-workers LOVE that version.  But I wanted it to be a little more “from scratch,” so when the hubs asked if I’d make Mountain Dew Cupcakes for the up-coming office Easter […]

#LoveEveryMinute of this BBQ Chicken and Rice with Cream Sauce!

#LoveEveryMinute Rice |

When I was in middle & high school, I’d go visit my Grandparents over Spring Break.  It was an awesome week of (usually) just me and them!  We’d do all kinds of fun stuff – shopping, sewing, cooking, etc.  And (at least once) while I was there, my Grandma would make one of my favorite […]
