This week my daughter entered the 2nd grade. All I could think was that it seems like just yesterday I was teaching her how to walk. How does time go by so fast!? Anyways, every year I nervously wait to see my daughter hop off the bus (hopefully in a great mood) and run in the house to tell me all about her first day of school. We usually sit down at the dining room table and have a snack as we talk about her day.Continue reading
School is starting and so does the chaos. That is at least in my house. I get so tired of being the short order cook so I have taught my kids to cook a couple of things on their own. I have also made a couple of breakfast items that they can grab and enjoy on their own. These are our favorites and I hope that they make your life easier. We all need breakfast kids can make themselves.Continue reading

We are in week 2 of a brand new school year and let me tell you, it’s still hard to get up at 6 am every morning ha! Summer is a time for sleeping in at my house, and getting back in the swing of things during a new school year can be difficult. But luckily, a hot breakfast (and maybe a little dancing) can make even the earliest mornings good mornings. This week we have been dealing with some not so nice weather, so getting up in the mornings has been even harder, so I thought I would make it a little tastier by making a treat my daughter and I could both enjoy before heading off to school. Peanut Butter and Jelly is my daughters favorite flavor combination, and Smucker’s Concord Grape Jelly is her favorite type of jelly, so we decided to make a Peanut Butter & Jelly Bread which is perfect for a rainy day breakfast. Because who says PB&J has to just be for lunch? Making some PB&J bread with my daughter to make her smile in the morning is #MyPBJMomentContinue reading
I came up with this recipe because we had a lot of tomatoes, basil, and peppers. I am a huge fan of recipes you can freeze and this sauce is one that you can easily freeze and eat with another meal. You can also put this in ice cube trays and use it as a starter for chicken or for fish. It is just a great all around sauce. You can also blend this less and make a soup out of it. I have a husband who is dairy free so you can leave out the cheese. I also have children with nut allergies so I make them the sauce without the pesto. I then put in it a jar and label it “kids”. You just make their version first. This recipe is very easy and healthy. It’s light but hearty. It is the perfect meal for a summer evening and the best way to use all of your fresh in-season produce while it is plentiful and inexpensive.
Kids gone back to school yet? Need a quick and easy recipe that the whole family will enjoy?
The reason I love this Quick Chicken Pot Pie recipe is because it is quick, easy, taste amazing and I usually keep most of these ingredients on hand all the time. I can throw this recipe together in about 30 minutes and enjoy more time with my family! I usually double this recipe and make two pies and I freeze the other for a night that I’m really in a rush or if a friend is in need!Continue reading
School is officially back in session! For me, that means getting up earlier than I honestly like to, and getting everyone ready for the day ahead. We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so making sure that be feed our kids and ourselves a healthy breakfast. You guys know I’ve been trying to eat healthier, so a bowl of cereal isn’t going to cut it anymore. I need something with some protein and healthy fats in it, so that’s why these easy freezer breakfast burritos are my favorite to make! Continue reading
