Kids in the Kitchen: Spaghetti Dinner

Spaghetti & Meatballs | SensiblySara.com

  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! He wouldn’t mix everything together but he did form the balls and put them on the baking sheet. Colin helped by putting the spaghetti noodles in the boiling water. […]

Chicken and Dumplings #Recipe

Chicken and Dumplings | SensiblySara.com

My mom’s chicken and dumplings is my all-time favorite meal.  It’s good when I make it, but better when Mom makes it!  Either way, when it’s cold and nasty outside (like it has been on and off all winter!), this 45-minute dinner is the perfect ‘warm my soul’ meal! It has taken my kids awhile to ‘warm […]

**Full Disclosure: I received a gift card to purchase ingredients for the recipe but was not compensated in any other way.  All opinions are my own. Last week I let my boys make dinner – everything but putting it in/taking it out of the oven.  There was a little fighting over who was going to […]

Kids in the Kitchen: Crispy Cheddar Chicken

Making Crispy Cheddar Chicken | SensiblySara

  Last week I saw this recipe on Pinterest for Crispy Cheddar Chicken.  It looked delicious and I figured my kids would scarf it up.  I picked up everything I needed to make the chicken so the boys and I could make it on Monday. James didn’t feel like helping so Colin and I headed […]

Ragu Sloppy Joes #Recipe

Ragu Sloppy Joes Recipe

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 […]

Kids in the Kitchen: Toad in the Hole

Toad in the Hole Collage

  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. While I shredded the cheese, Colin helped cut the circles into […]

Kids in the Kitchen: Squid Dogs

Making Squid Dogs | SensiblySara.com

Lately I’ve been feeling as if I don’t have anymore ‘good’ ideas for this co-hosted Kids in the Kitchen series.  I was chatting with Paula (from Frosted Fingers) about how I was feeling and she linked me to her Squid Dogs post.  I thought it was BRILLIANT!!  So I purchased everything we’d need to make […]

Pasta Carbonara with Peas #Recipe

Pasta Carbonara | SensiblySara.com

Making a weekly meal plan is crucial for me because if I don’t know what I am going to make, nothing gets made!  That said, I routinely make the same meals week after week – and it gets old.  You will find French toast and beef tacos on our plan almost every week. Most days, […]

Quick and Easy Dirty Rice | SensiblySara.com

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 […]
