Mediterranean Turkey Burgers

I’ll be honest, my kids aren’t great at eating vegetables.  We’re always trying and they’re getting better, but it’s super hard sometimes.   One time, I literally had a kid picking the peppers out of a spaghetti sauce.   You won’t believe the amount of time and energy it took for him to do that.   So I


Crockpot Pulled Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

So funny story about KB.  He used to not like blue cheese.  Like really not like it.  But then he tried this blue cheese fondue appetizer at Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse at the casino when we used to live in CT and he started to think that maybe he should try it.  Next thing I know,


Crockpot Curried Chickpeas

A little while ago, I decided to try an experiment on my family.  I decided to try and see if I could sneak in a few meatless meals with no complaints.  And for the most part I was successful.  You see, I truly believe I could be a vegetarian if it wasn’t for bacon.   Yes,


Portabella Mushroom Tacos

So I’m all in favor of Meatless Mondays.  I do like meat and there’s NO way I could ever be a complete vegetarian, but every so often I like to slip a meatless meal into the rotation.  It’s funny because the other day I made this with the full intention of tricking the kids into


Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli Ramen

Every Wednesday I make a slow cooker meal.  Something I can just throw together in the morning and forget about for the rest of the day.  Wednesday’s are my busy day because I take L to swimming lessons about 25 minutes away.  And when I get home, I’d like to have dinner already ready so


Garlicky Asian Chicken Thighs

Most days I have zero ideas what I’m making for dinner.  So I take out a package of chicken and hope for the best.  Some days I get zero complaints.  Which is crazy because I have two picky tiny humans.  One of which likes meat and one of which likes cheese and carbs.  So it’s


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


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
