Cheesy-Garlicky Baked Meatballs

My son is obsessed with meatballs.  I’d say there never was a meatball he didn’t like.  Which is weird because on the whole, he doesn’t usually like meat.  He’d much prefer cheese and bread.  But meatballs.  Meatballs he loves.  I get a request several times a week for spaghetti and meatballs.  Which I try to


Cheesy Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast is not only the most important meal of the day, but it’s also my favorite.   It really starts my day off on the right foot and keeps me going.   If I had to skip a meal, it most certainly would not be breakfast.  Some people may disagree with me and that’s their right, but


Healthy Chicken and Vegetable Noodle Soup

It’s winter and I’m cold.  And the kids had some “cold” days off school last week.  It truly was #thewinterbreakthatdoesntend.  LOL.  I mean, I love my kids and I love winter break, but it’s not the same as summer break.  It’s not all fun and games and you can’t send them outside to play for


Slow Cooker Beef and Black Bean Chili

I love a good slow cooker chili.  Throw a bunch of stuff into the slow cooker in the am and dinner is ready by the pm.  The best part is, it doesn’t really matter what you put in it.  For me, it kind of depends on what I have on hand.  Usually some kind of


Cheesy Taco Pasta

So maybe taco pasta is a culinary fusion I’d never tried before.  But both my children love tacos (well tacos with just meat and cheese) and both my children love pasta.  So the other day I decided to make a cheesy taco pasta.  I mean why not?   I had all the ingredients for tacos so


Mediterranean Chicken Tacos

I love tacos.  There I said it.  There should be a support group for people like me that love tacos.   We could call it Tacos Anonymous.  Except it wouldn’t really be anonymous.  And we could serve tacos as refreshments.  I mean, if you were to tell me say during the middle of my workout class


Red Wine Roasted Tomatoes

I had an abundance of cherry tomatoes this summer.  It wasn’t that it was a particularly good year for my garden it was probably more so that my neighbors had a good year for their gardens.  I like to think that I have a green thumb, but it’s probably more likely that I have a


Taco Salad

I don’t usually make salad for the fam.  I think it’s because there’s an awful lot of work that goes into making it and usually it’s only KB and me that will eat it.  I mean my kids will eat some of what goes into the salad…except the lettuce.  So there’s that.  BUT I will


Easy Peas-y Macaroni Salad

Whenever I want to get the kids to eat peas, I put them in another dish.  When they were babies, they used to LOVE them.  But of course I think that was just because I dumped a spoonful of peas on their high chair tray and let them practice feeding themselves.  Which probably would have


Breakfast Street Tacos

Did you know there’s such a thing as a taco diet?  A diet in which you eat only tacos.  I think I could be onboard with that.  Tacos are seriously my favorite.   The kids love them too.  Sometimes when I’m making something I don’t think they’ll eat, I put it in a tortilla and tell
