    Pepperoni Onion Rolls

      I cook dinner for my family 5-6 nights a week, and so often, people are amazed by that. Why? Time. Cooking can be incredibly time-consuming, especially the preparation ahead of time – gathering the ingredients, cutting them up, and more. The prep work is no doubt the hardest part of cooking. I love the fresh flavor of sauteed onions, fresh ginger, and more. But have you ever minced fresh ginger? It’s a pain in the butt. No wonder no ones uses fresh herbs – and no wonder all the TV chefs have everything prepped for them. If people saw…

    Easy Valentine’s Day Bark

    Easy Valentine’s Day Bark

    We may have just finished the holiday season, but the next one is just around the corner! Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it, and I wanted to find a way to make it fun for Abbie now that she’s getting older and more interested in holidays. Valentine’s Day is so fun for kids – especially my 5-year-old who loves candy… and all things pink. One of my favorite easy treats to make is bark – of all kinds. It requires a microwave, chocolate, and toppings – my kind of recipe. I put together the chocolate part and…

    Cheesy Italian Turkey Sausage Frittata

    Cheesy Italian Turkey Sausage Frittata

       I am always looking for easy, filling breakfasts. I’m a big proponent of fueling up at the start of your day… and if you know me, you know I adore breakfast food. In fact, I could eat breakfast food any time of day and never get tired of it. Even though I enjoy the classics, it’s nice to come up with new ideas too. We’re always trying to get more whole foods into our diet – that allows us to indulge just a little bit while still keeping with a healthy lifestyle. I’ll be honest – the motivation for…

    Easy Ice Cream Cookie Cups

    Easy Ice Cream Cookie Cups

      One of the things I struggle with most as a working mom is finding the best foods to feed my family. I’m always looking for products with simple wholesome ingredients to use in all our family recipes – even when it’s a treat! These ice cream cookie cups are just that – an easy treat that uses real ingredients. I used ice cream made with real California milk for these, and I know I can trust the quality.   Not only can I trust the quality of real California Milk, I love the initiatives they support, including their new…

    Rainbow Treats

    Rainbow Treats

    I’m always looking for ways to involve Abbie in holidays, even the small ones. With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, there’s green and gold everywhere. You always think of green with St. Patrick’s Day, but I also think of rainbows – after all, isn’t the end of it where the pot of gold is? I had the idea to do an easy treat to celebrate – rainbow treats. Truthfully, I had this box of Fruity Pebbles in the pantry thanks to a late pregnancy craving, and I’m so glad I did. These were easy to mix up and done in…

    Caramel Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

    Caramel Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

    Thank you to Nestle Toll House for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to try the new DelightFulls Filled Baking Morsels! Confession: This is the first week I’ve had a full work week in a while. Between snow days and Abbie being sick, I’d been out of the office at least one day every week. While it was good to have those breaks, it made being at work the entire week this week an adjustment. So what do you need in the middle of the week? A cookie of course! Enter this giant one. Obviously, during the week there isn’t…
