  • Mexican Breakfast Meal Prep

    Mexican Breakfast Meal Prep

    For the past few months, I’ve been doing everything I can to make our mornings easier. Getting 2 adults and 2 kids out the door in the morning is not easy (especially when you leave by 7am). I’ve been making as many of my meals ahead of time as possible. First up is breakfast – inspired by this recipe from Skinnytaste – with a few changes to make it work a bit better for me.

    Three Easy Solutions for Your Game Day

    Three Easy Solutions for Your Game Day

      It’s so hard to believe that football season is just about over and the biggest games of the year are here! We are huge football fans in our house – the TV has football on all day long every fall, despite Abbie and Ella’s protest to watch kids shows. Sorry kids, but it’s football season.   With football season comes hosting Game Day get-togethers. Now let’s be real here – I’m a full-time working mom and I want to enjoy my weekends. That means the food for all of these get-togethers needs to be two things – tasty and…

    Apple Banana Cookies with Gerber Cereal

    We’re now a few months into introducing Ella to solids, and I have to say – it has been so much fun to watch her eat new foods and learn about textures. It’s also fun because unlike her big sister, this kid just loves to eat – she will eat anything and everything. I have yet to find a food she won’t eat. She’ll eat purees, but she definitely prefers to do it all herself.

    Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel Sticks

    Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel Sticks

    When the holiday season comes around, so do all my favorite flavor combinations. I love them all, but chocolate and peppermint has always been my favorite. Add in some pretzels, and it’s the perfect sweet and salty holiday snack. I love to make treats to give away to family and friends, so I whipped up these Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel Sticks as a fun snack to gift. They’re super easy to make, so they’re great for kids to help with too. Just be careful not to eat them all – you’ll want to!   Enjoy – and I dare you not to eat…

    My Kitchen: Spaghetti and Meatballs

    My Kitchen: Spaghetti and Meatballs

    When I was growing up, my mom made a LOT of Italian food. It was delicious, usually came in large portions, and was typically easy. My family is not Italian anywhere in our background, but that didn’t stop us from loving ALL the Italian things. Baked ziti? Check. Eggplant Parmesan? You bet, and one of my grandma’s favorites (and she was Jewish and German!) Chicken Parmesan, stuffed shells, manicotti… I could keep going. Marinara sauce in everything. And then of course, I married Chris – who has a Sicilian background. I finally have an excuse to make all the Italian…
