Colin is always so much more excited about helping me in the kitchen.  Even on days I don’t ask for help, he offers.  It’s so nice to see Colin enjoy cooking and, even better, spending time with me! I’ve been making these (amazing!) slow cooker beef tips about once every other week.  We always have enough for […]

  We have spaghetti and meatballs at least twice a month around here.  I was finally able to get James to help me make the meatballs!

Every Sunday I plan our meals for the week.  By about Wednesday, even though I have everything I need, I don’t want to cook anything.  On those days, I am thankful for recipes that use less than 5 ingredients and take less than 20 minutes to throw together! I know we all have these kinds […]

  When we made our meal plan this week, the boys asked for French Toast (like they do every week) but I wanted to change it up with a different breakfast-f0r-dinner option.  I vetoed the French Toast and penciled in Toad in the Hole.
