Loaded Berry Crispy Chicken Salad

Loaded Berry Crispy Chicken Salad

I love making salads for myself. But I rarely make them for dinner. My kids won’t eat salad and I thought that my husband didn’t like salads for dinner. But it turns out that I was on a salad kick a few weeks ago and made salads a couple of times and my husband loved them! So I made a few different ones and we absolutely loved this one! The fresh berries with the crunchy chicken and bacon paired with sugared almonds was just so yummy!  I found this recipe here and made it but with the ingredients that I had at …

Asian Salmon with Peach Mango Salsa

Asian Salmon with Peach Mango Salsa

First I wanted to Congratulate Jessica Kuligowski for winning the Peanut Butter & Jelly GIVEAWAY that was going on!  And now onto a yummy recipe with a funny story to go along with it! The night I made this salmon was pretty eventful. I usually do my cooking and meal prep while my kids are taking naps. But this day it didn’t quite work out like that. So it was pure chaos in the kitchen come 5:00. So trying to have a meal on the table by 5:30 when my husband walked in from work took was pushing it. I …

Cheesy Chicken and Spinach Bundles

When I started to make dinner the other night this is not what I had in mind. It started as just panko crusted chicken parmesan with a side spinach salad. I decided to have a little fun with these chicken bundles and threw in some ham to make it a chicken cordon bleu type of dish and luckily I threw in some spinach for my kids to eat and this dish was perfect! I loved it this way but it would be good with some spaghetti sauce on top too!   Cheesy Chicken and Spinach Bundles ingredients  4-6 small chicken breast, pounded …

Homemade Soft Artisan Beer Pretzels

Homemade Soft Artisan Beer Pretzels

I have always been a huge Krusteaz fan! We use their products almost weekly. Especially their waffle and pancake mixes. So when I received a package from them I was so excited to be working with a company that I already knew was a hit in our house! As I looked through the package I noticed a box of “beer bread mix” that was one product of theirs that I had yet to try! I wanted to make something new but yummy! And then I realized that soft pretzels would be just the pair for this bread mix and boy was it …

Buffalo Chicken BLT Pitas

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

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 …

Havarti, Caramelized Onion, and Steak Quesadilla

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 …

Hawaiian Haystacks

Hawaiian Haystacks

If someone asked me to name a few meals that reminded me of my childhood this would be one of them! In fact my older brother, Stetson asks for this meal almost every year for his “birthday meal” that my mom cooks. And being that I am headed to Hawaii next week I only thought that it would be fitting to fix this meal before we head off! The best thing about this meal is that it is so versatile. This plate in the picture would be mine: layered cheese, tomatoes, pineapple, mandarin oranges, lots of coconut, slivered almonds,Chinese noodles, …
