Crockpot Chicken and White Bean Soup

Now that it officially feels like fall, I like to make soups in my crockpot.  For a while there, I was worried the weather might never turn cooler.  It was so hot in September that school was cancelled, twice.  But KB and I took a vacation to the Bahamas at the beginning of October and


Maple Mustard Chicken Thighs

One of my favorite ways to cook chicken is in the oven with a simple seasoning or marinade over it.  Bonus points if it’s healthy and the children will eat it too.   I also like it because it just doesn’t take much time to prepare and then you can just sit back and relax and


Crockpot Thai Curry Chicken and Chickpeas

The weather has certainly changed in the past week or two.  I use my crockpot year round, but it always seems like in the fall, it’s used more often.  I know I’ve said this before, but I have a long-standing relationship with my crockpot.  It’s been with me even longer than my husband, LOL.  And


Turkey Taco Bowls

I love tacos.  There, I said it.  I think I need to join a taco support group.  Or a taco group where I sit around and eat tacos all day.   I also find that if I want to get my kids to eat something…anything…I can put it in a tortilla and call it a taco


Zippy Cheese Steak Sandwiches

I love the word zippy!  I don’t think I use it nearly enough.  I think I like it because I don’t use it often.  But when you think about it, zippy is kind of cool.  It means bright, fresh, and a little pop of flavor.  I almost called these spicy cheese steak sandwiches but changed


Asian Sloppy Joes

A little known fact about myself…I’m Asian.  Well, part-Asian…that is to say…my Dad is Taiwanese and my Momma is German.  I’m proud of being Asian and so are my children.  But it’s kind of hard to believe that my blonde haired blue/brown eyed children are Asian.  I get mistaken a lot for a different ethnicity. 


Pesto Chicken

It’s always a win when I can find something that’s fast and easy to make and that the kids will eat too.  Sometimes I get into a rut and make the same things over and over.  But it’s that time of the year and the garden is in full swing.  Which means I have tons


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,
