Buffalo Chicken BLT Pitas

I feel like a lot of my inspiration for my family, life, and blog posts come as I lay in bed at night. And that was exactly what happened with this fun and yummy meal plus a few others that will be featured in the following weeks! It had been one of those long days! I had deep cleaned my house and then when my kids were home from school we had some friends over to play for a few hours. My clean house was not so clean anymore, my dinner didn’t turn out exactly how I had hoped, and …

St Patricks Day Meal

It feels like all over Pinterest during this time of year is fun things to eat, craft, or decorate for St.  Patricks Day. I always pin a million things and plan to do them with my kids but rarely does it ever happen. (Hopefully I’m not the only one) I was out of town with my kids while my husband worked the days leading up to this holiday. So when I returned home I was exhausted, had a pile of laundry to do, and was trying to pick my battles. So the unpacking and laundry was set aside to make this fun …

The absolute yummiest Baked Spaghetti

Whenever someone calls, text, or emails me to ask me if I have a recipe for a certain thing and I don’t it becomes my mission to try out and create a recipe for what they are looking for. And that is exactly what happened with “Baked Spaghetti.” One of my closest friends asked me if I had a good baked spaghetti recipe the other day and I had to tell her no but just wait and ill figure out something. With a house full of young kids spaghetti for some reason is a dish that they all inhale! I …

Cracker Jack Caramel Corn + Kernel Seasons GIVEAWAY!

My baby girl turned 1 and for her big birthday bash we had a fun popcorn bar featuring Kernel Seasons seasonings and movie theatre butter! We had regular popcorn, kettle corn, and caramel corn. The kids had the party loved it! Im pretty sure 99% of them had a little too much fun with the seasons! Either mixing flavors that should never be mixed or dumping almost the entire container of seasonings on their small serving of popcorn! I think a popcorn bar is such a fun and easy thing to offer at a party! Bonus is that you can make the …

Mini Toasted Coconut Pistachio Cream Pie

With St. Patricks Day right around the corner its seems like all over Pinterest has been festive “green” recipes! And for some reason I have spent way too much time thinking and coming up with my own St. Patricks Day fun recipes! I also realized that food items dyed green aren’t always that appetizing haha! When Diamond Nuts contacted me and asked if they could send me some of their NEW! Shelled Pistachios I knew I could have some fun with them. And since pistachios are my husbands favorite he didn’t mind either. The only problem was telling him that he couldn’t sit and …

Buttermilk Pancakes with Buttermilk Syrup

Happy National Pancake Day! My 3 year old is all about having pancakes for breakfast and asks almost every single day for me to make them! He manages to sweet talk me into making his cute little self them at least once a week. I have tried adding chocolate chips or blueberries in the batter and that is not up his alley! He likes just regular pancakes with syrup only. The rest of us usually pile ours high with whatever fruit we have on hand. Caramelizing a little peaches on top is a favorite of mine during peach season with …

Lemon Bars

There are certain desserts that I forget about and then when someone brings them up I cannot get them out of my mind until I make {or eat} them. That is exactly what happened with these lemon bars. One of my very best friends is also my neighbor and the other day she mentioned that she was going to make lemon bars. Well long story short she ended up making something else and I have not been able to stop thinking about these lemon bars. And fortunately the person who lives directly behind me has a lemon tree that will …

Dessert Nachos featuring Cookie Chips

Dessert is something that happens often at our house,whether is something simple or something as deluxe as these dessert nachos. My husband and sons love them some chocolate!  When Hannahmax sent me a fun box clear full of their delicious Cookie Chips a few ideas ran through my mind but I kept going back to this one. It took all my will power not to just sit down and eat each bag! I had to refrain myself! But after I made these dessert nachos boy was I glad that I held out! And since I had a bag of each kind I …

Weekends are something to look forward to in our house. I love when my husband is home, but I think my kids love it even more! For some reason all my kids love being outside and helping him do yard work. I on the other hand can barely get them to put their dirty clothes in the hamper! I spend Saturday and Sunday cooking! Breakfast,lunch,and dinner and usually a snack and dessert too! Last weekend we had a major cleaning day then spent the rest of the day out back. They were slip n’ sliding and playing with every water …

Southern Deep Fried Fish

A few weeks ago I was able to get away with my husband for a week and travel to Hawaii. It was a dream and so relaxing! We ate out for every single meal and truly lived it up! One of the nights we went to a place in Maui called Monkeypod Kitchen and one of the things we ordered was the Fish n’ Chips. We absolutely loved it there until we realized that my husband forgot his wallet back in the hotel room! He was shocked and embarrassed and I just sat there and laughed. Luckily I have my debit card …
