Leftover Heaven!

If you ask my husband, my leftover-eating track record is abysmal. But lately, eating leftovers isn’t as much of a chore as it used to be for me. You might even say that I look forward to leftovers now. One change has made all the difference. I’ve noticed that if I create something different with…

Noodles? I Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Noodles!!

Okay friends. I saw this Skinnytaste video last week and mentioned it to my hubby. I said, “would you try zucchini lasagna?” He made a face. I clarified that the “noodles” are just thin slices of grilled zucchini, instead of pasta, and everything else is lasagna-making like usual. He jumped on board. It really wasn’t…

You So Saucy, Pork

We love some pulled pork in our house. We pop it in the crock pot all day and just drool over the smell until it’s ready to eat. I was going to post our all-meat chili recipe today, but that’s too hard to do when you have a husband who doesn’t measure and he’s the…

Pan Pasta

Alrighty peeps, I’m back! Let’s not waste anymore of your time and jump in. You know that post going around about cooking pasta in a pan? I said to myself, I’m definitely trying that! It works great! 14 minutes later, I drained my pasta and we ate. 🙂 We tried it just last night so…

Hang Your Card at the Door

Here is what I did with my holiday cards today. It’s a really easy and cute way to hang them. All I did was take a few pieces of yarn and twist them together and tied the ends so it wouldn’t unravel. Then I thumb-tacked it to the doorway and paper-clipped the cards to the…

On The Line

This weekend we stopped by to see Aleah’s mom. I took one look at her kitchen wall and knew what my Monday post would be. She had a single strand of blue yarn thumbtacked to the wall and all along the strand were clothespins. Each clothespin held a school picture of a grandkid. What a…

Grapetastic Salad

So my friend made this grape salad for a girls night in one night. She told us there was sour cream in it and I had my doubts. But man if that wasn’t the best tasting thing I’ve eaten in awhile. She said it was really easy to make and that I could just google…

Roast Beef – It’s What’s for Dinner

We were trying to decide on something quick we could do for dinner one night and it hit me: roast beef sandwiches…but the easy way. So all I did was run to the store and pick up a pound of roast beef (you can adjust the amount to the size of your family) and grinder/hoagie…

Reese’s Peasy Cheesecake

Alrighty my bloggy friends, here’s the deal. I changed up my easy peasy cheesecake recipe to incorporate Reese’s peanut butter cups. Aleah says I have until her birthday to figure it out haha. But so far I had really good feedback on the one I made recently. You start out with the regular easy peasy cheesecake…

The Incredible Edible Egg Indeed

I really like having an egg in the morning for breakfast, but sometimes I’m a lazy butt and I just don’t feel like dealing with cooking it on the stove. So last week I googled over easy eggs in the microwave and tried it out. It worked!!! I couldn’t believe it. I sprayed my bowl…

So Smoothie-licious!

I have to tell you, when my oldest kiddo brought three, yes three, cookbooks home from the library, my inner mom voice screamed in horror. It’s not like I don’t like to make things with the kids, or that I don’t like baking, but she wanted to try recipes herself. Now, this seems like an…

Easy Peasy Cheesecake

Alright my HOH peeps, this is my go-to, tried-and-true, let’s have cheesecake recipe. I don’t even remember when I came across it, but it has saved my butt more than once when I couldn’t come up with something to make for a party. Follow this recipe, and as long as you don’t have one of…
