Dinners

Italian Style Hot Dogs

Italian Style Hot Dogs

Quick kid approved dinner alert! When my husband and I were newlyweds, without a lot of money I used to make him this dinner all the time. Using all pantry ingredients this comes together in 5 minutes. I use my same method as when packing […]

Slow Cooker Taco Beef

Slow Cooker Taco Beef

I just love taco night, or as we call it in our house “fiesta night.” Fiesta night started in college with my roommate and has now become a tradition we’ve carried on with our own families. You just can’t beat classic taco beef. There is […]

Veggie Nuggets

Veggie Nuggets

I am always looking for new and creative ways to get more vegetables into my kids. Nuggets seem to be a food group all their own for children, whether frozen, homemade or from a drive through, they just love them. This idea came to me […]

Keto Flatbread Pizza

My love for Asian food is nothing new to you loyal followers. However, making Asian food at home is a whole lot harder than ordering that yummy take out! The easiest dish to start with I find is a stir fry. They are really versatile […]

Chicken Bruschetta Pasta

Chicken Bruschetta Pasta

I always love to end the weekend with a nice big dinner before the weekday rush and quick dinners begin again. This is one of my favorite pasta dishes over the summer when the basil and tomatoes are plentiful, however you can still make it […]
