Do your kids help you cook?  You might be surprised at what your kids can make themselves (or with a little help)!  Teaching them early is a great life skill that will benefit them down the road, think college freshman (or don’t…that just makes me sad!). We have put together a list of “recipes” that …

One-Pot Creamy Spaghetti

Easy to Make One-Pot Creamy Spaghetti Is The Perfect “Normal” Spaghetti and Meatballs I think my family could eat spaghetti and meatballs once a week! I can’t tell you how many times I ask the boys, or my husband, what they want for dinner and spaghetti is the response. Again. When I came across this recipe for …

When my husband and I were first dating, we visited my family and my Memaw made him spaghetti and meatballs.  He was instantly in love! 😉  Ever since, when we visit she makes this dish for him.  The meatballs are super simple to make and so delicious.  I like to make a large batch so I have …

Qdoba Burrito Copycat Recipe

This Qdoba Burrito Copycat Recipe is one of our favorite go-to meals if we need something quick, delicious and hearty! My kids love, love, LOVE Qdoba…actually we all do, but honestly for all five of us to eat there it’s easily $50 without us ordering drinks! It’s just not an affordable option. Our alternative is this super …

As I have mentioned before, I don’t particularly like cooking.  I understand it’s part of the job and we can’t eat out every day but, none the less, I prefer to do as little of it as possible! 😉  I LOVE when I can make a large quantity of meat and use it for multiple …

Growing up we lived next door to my grandparents.  My dad’s side of the family is large but most Sundays we would go over to my grandparent’s house for lunch.  It was always a fun (loud) time.  Looking back, there was always had a LOT of food.  The adults normally helped out by bringing sides, but my …

My family loves sandwiches.  I normally prefer turkey but my husband loves roast beef.  A few years ago my sister-in-law introduced us to these cheese steak sandwiches, and I have to admit that now I would probably choose this over a turkey club! 😉  Not only are these sandwiches delicious, they are super easy to …

Jimmy John's Homemade Subs

Honestly, this is actually my absolute TOP go-to meal for baseball season! When the boys are playing travel baseball we can be at the ball park all…..day……long. I refuse to eat or let my kids fill up on concession stand food! And its too expensive to eat out every meal for every tournament during every weekend.  I …

Summer seems like it’s all about trying to keep the food easy and light! I know that I typically lay pretty low on making casseroles, huge & heavy meals or even turning on the oven during the summer months. We are all pretty happy with food options that can be grilled or sandwiches that we …

These make ahead chicken enchiladas are a GREAT quick meal! I cheat a little on this recipe by using pre-made enchilada sauce and sometimes I even buy rotisserie chicken from the store! (I’m a horrible mom, I know! 😉 ) Shred the chicken then add the bell pepper, onion, sour cream, cream cheese, parsley, and …

My family asks for this meal on a regular basis, and I’m always completely happy to make it because it’s SO easy!  We call it “Mary’s Macaroni” because Mary is my husband’s great-grandmother and she made it for him as a kid. For our purposes we’ll call it:  20 minute hamburger macaroni. 😉 This is …

I started making these pizza rolls about 5 years ago and my family loves them.  They don’t take a lot of time to make and I try to double the batch, so that there is plenty leftover to freeze.  They make the perfect quick meal.  You can just pop them in the microwave or if …

We all have those nights that we stop at the store and wonder what on earth we can cook (with the least effort possible) for dinner!  Did you know that you can get a rotisserie chicken for around $5 at the grocery and make a meal in no time flat!?! Store bought rotisserie chickens can …

In a perfect world we would all plan our meals and have dinner ready just in time for our family to all sit down and eat together at 5:30.  But lets be REAL, that’s a dream for the majority of us.  We have busy school and work schedules  so when you throw in evening activities …
