What Happens on a turkey farm? And a yummy Turkey Kabob Recipe

What Happens on a turkey farm? And a yummy Turkey Kabob Recipe

A few months ago I went to a great blog conference called Mom 2.0  where I was able to meet some great people, being influenced by some great speakers, and be introduced to some amazing brands. One of the nights there was a fun Happy Hour Tent Party and that is where I was able to be introduced to a great company Shady Brook Farms and Honey Suckle White. That night they had a great big mural that everyone who wanted to could be apart of painting. I remember very distinctively the conversations I had with one of the 700 famers …

Easy Pasta Salad

Pasta salad will always remind me of my older sister for some reason. I don’t know if its because she used to always ask my mom to make it for her when we were growing up or what! But for some reason every single time I make it I can’t help but think about her! Pasta salad is one of those things that I feel is good all year around. But it is especially food during BBQ season! Whenever I see a pasta salad at a BBQ or a family gathering I always go to it first and get a …

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet Potatoes

This sweet potato recipe is by far my favorite sweet potato recipe I have ever tried. When I received a package of Santé Nuts I knew that it would be the perfect addition to make this recipe even better for our Thanksgiving meal this year! The only challenge was picking which pecans I wanted to add! Cinnamon pecans for the Win! Totally took this recipe up a notch! We have been using our Santé nuts on salads, in our smoothies and in oatmeal, muffins and other yummy recipes. And here is how you make these yummy sweet potatoes: First you mix the …

Coconut Chicken Curry

Coconut Chicken Curry

Curry is definitely not a staple in our home. I do enjoy the unique flavor of curry on occasion though. My husband backpacked through Thailand for 3 months years ago and said that curry was in almost every dish that he ate for that 3 months so he hasn’t eaten too much curry since then. So that explains the reason curry isn’t a staple in our home. But on the other hand as a women who cooks dinner practically every night sometimes you have a mix it up! I flip through cookbook after cookbook and look on pinterest for hours …

Pesto Peach Pasta

Pesto Peach Pasta

This pasta may seem a little random to some but these flavors somehow taste amazing together. One of my moms best friends named Jill gave her this pasta recipe. Every recipe I have ever tried of Jill’s is out of this world. This recipe is just that. During the late summer months peaches are ripe everywhere. I order a large box of peaches from Utah that get shipped here and there are gone very very fast. Usually just plain, with cream, or in desserts. That is why every year I throw in this recipe at least once to have a …

Twice Baked Potatoes

Twice Baked Potatoes

Twice baked potatoes are one of my families favorite sides. My oldest son has become a huge fan of potatoes and baked potatoes lately. And these are his favorite way to eat them. Well actually more like these with a huge dollop of sour cream on top! I don’t blame him sour cream is yummy! I don’t usually add the extra sour cream ( I don’t think they need them) but if you are a sour cream lover go ahead!  So next time you have extra potatoes lying around or need a side dish try jazzing the good ol baked …

The Ultimate Potato Salad

The Ultimate Potato Salad

During summer time BBQ’s are in full swing! Swimming parties and potlucks are where it is at! I think potato salad is definitely a staple at any BBQ. This is one of my very favorite potato salads using red potatoes. A few weeks ago my neighbor brought over the largest bag of red potatoes. (I am talking about as big as me!) So I have been incorporating different potato dishes into each meal. This one was made for our hamburger night. Some leftovers sat in the fridge for a few days (The longer it sits the better it tastes) until …

Cheesy Chicken and Spinach Bundles

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 …

Creamy Spinach Artichoke Dip

Creamy Spinach Artichoke Dip

Thank you everyone who enter the Wayfair giveaway! The winner is…Melissa Moore! Congratulations and enjoy your $100 to Wayfair!  Spinach and artichoke dip is my absolute favorite. I will go to certain restaurants just for their dip even if I don’t care for their main dishes as much. It beats any dip out there for me…which is dangerous.  This dip was no exception! Creamy and delicious! So when I received a large box full of food should taste good chips I whipped up some of this dip and sat down and ate it all! haha I know I am pathetic. Then of course …
