Growing up, my mother would strive to make each and every birthday special for my sister and myself. On your birthday, you could pick any dinner you want, and Mama would prepare it for the Birthday Girl. My birthday dinner was always lasagna. This was probably because the classic dish was not something Mama prepared very often. And, it can be a pricey dish. However, it feeds a lot of hungry folks, so it is a favorite in many families. I decided to recreate my favorite lasagna recipe.Continue reading
In the last couple of weeks, we have found out that my husband is gluten intolerant. I have been scrambling to make breakfasts that I can cook ahead of time and freeze. I have to come up with meals that my kids and my husband will both like and they have to be easy. They have to be something I can make ahead of time. I headed into Walmart to buy some ingredients for what I hoped would be a special breakfast meal idea. I decided that a pumpkin waffle with Yopliat® Greek Yogurt sauce would be the perfect remedy. I will say my children loved the Yogurt dipping sauce so much that they asked me to put the rest in their lunch box with apple slices. This recipe was so successful in my home that I am sharing it with you.Continue reading

A skeleton with big strong bones? A ghost with a hallowing boo? A zombie with a hungry gaze? Maybe a pirate with a patch? Or a princess with a pretty crown? Has your child decided what they are going to dress up as for Halloween? Mine will change their minds in what feels like a million time between now and Halloween night. One thing that doesn’t change is how important it is to give them a good meal before they go out trick or treating and start gobbling treats.
Fall is in the air. I know this because later on today I get to go sit outside for a soccer game. In the rain. When it’s 59 degrees. Doesn’t that sound fun? The things we do for our children right? Anyways, now that fall is here, it’s time to start enjoying the flavors of fall. And for me, that means pumpkin. Oh yes, I am a pumpkin spice latte kind of girl. I also love pumpkin pie! So when I was asked to make a something for friend who happens to be gluten free I had an idea for a perfect recipe. Fun fact, did you know you can buy gluten free graham crackers? It’s true! And they make the perfect homemade crust for my Gluten Free Pumpkin Cheesecake Recipe! Would you like to learn how to make it? Sweet!
You guys, I have a confession, I’m a reality TV addict. It’s true! And I’ve come to accept and embrace that. This week was the Big Brother finale, and every year I throw a wrap party for the end of the season. Hey, some people throw superbowl parties, I throw Big Brother parties, ha! But I digress, I told you that, to tell you about these amazing Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches that I made for the party. They.are.so.awesome. They are easy to make, tastes great, and are easy to feed a crowd. I assume you could use this same basic recipe for any lunch meat, but the ham has the best flavor. Hee is how to make them:Continue reading
Do you hate making a lasagna? Do they take to long? I have the easiest meal ever to make. It freezes well. It can even be cooked in a crockpot. I make these ravioli casseroles for all my friends. I make them for every occasion because they are easy and taste wonderful! I believe that meals should be healthy, so this is my version in making sure your children eat their spinach. I also like that my kids can help me make this meal. I offer this baked ravioli casserole recipe as part of my freezer cooking swap co-op and it is well received. If you have ten minutes you can make a couple of these to get started in your freezer cooking, life-saving, meal preparation habit.
