Slow Cooker Ham Minestrone Soup

Tis the season, right?  It’s the season in between winter and spring.  It’s called second winter.  When all I can think about is spring and when it’s coming.  Spring, when it comes, will be over and gone WAY too quick.  It’s one of my two favorite seasons (spring and fall), both of which are short-lived.

Sausage Breakfast Sandwich

I love breakfast for dinner.  There, I said it.  It’s out there and I can’t take it back.  I don’t want to take it back, in fact, I embrace it.  If having breakfast for dinner is wrong, I don’t need to be right.  The other day KB suggested I make breakfast for dinner using some

Slow Cooker Salsa and Brown Rice Chicken Taco Bowls

One of my favorite things to do with my crockpot is to make salsa chicken.  It takes zero active time to prepare and if I use mild salsa, both my children will eat it without complaint.  Especially when I serve it to them as tacos.  Every January, I do a “healthy January.”  I like to

Curry Turkey and Brie Sliders

Thanksgiving was last week.  And of course we had leftovers for days.  Because who doesn’t have leftovers on Thanksgiving?  I think leftovers are one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving.  A few years ago, KB took to deep-frying our turkey.  Which I love, because the skin gets so crispy and the inside is so juicy. 

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

Super Easy Cheesy Breakfast Sliders

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.  Absolute favorite, hands down.  So much that I could eat it 3 meals a day.  Although, sometimes it seems like a chore making breakfast for my children before school.  They both usually want different things; one would be satisfied eating waffles or pancakes daily and the other

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
