5 ingredient dinner: Sausage, Kale, and Potato Soup

Every time my family takes a road trip to the Poconos, we’re always sure to make a pit stop at our favorite barbecue place. The kids love the popcorn that the waitresses places on the table before their meal arrives (total appetite killer, but after a few hours in a car with two toddlers, […]

Ultimate Chicken Soup

Almost every weekend during the winter, I make a big pot of soup to last my family most of the week. This chicken soup is hands-down the most popular soup in the rotation–and it’s one that my kids ask for regularly. Actually, they ask for “chicken poop” since that’s how my 2-year-old pronounces it, and […]

Sneaky Healthy Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese

My toddler is going through a crazy picky stage.  She loves carbs (liked her mama) and detests vegetables (unlike like her mama).  You can imagine my frustration when my daughter’s meals sit on her plate uneaten. It’s like, c’mon, girl—I went to culinary school! This is GOOD food!

It’s a […]

The most economical way to purchase a squash […]

Slow Cooker Applesauce

Nothing makes the house smell quite like fall than the smell of cinnamon and apples slowly cooking all afternoon.

I admit that I’m not one that often pulls out my slow cooker. Most of the good recipes I find require too many steps that, for me, eliminate the convince factor of using a slow cooker […]
