Four Fall Drinks to Try

I know that the first official day of fall isn't until later in the month, but I've been in full blown fall mode around here for a few weeks. Having the kids go back to school in early August will do that you. And while I've definitely been focused on my fall wardrobe, I've also been bringing out all my favorite fall recipes. That includes cocktail recipes. And what better ingredients to include in fall cocktail recipes than apple and pumpkin? I know I'm not the only girl who obsesses over both of them right? So,...

Fall Snack, Fancy Apple Slices

Fancy Apple Slices

No matter what age they are, kids have a pretty long day when they are in school. Focusing and paying attention and doing all the things that happen at school is a lot on them from pre-school to high school. And right now in these early weeks of a new school year I try to be extra compassionate. You know how you feel after the first days of starting a new job? You're exhausted just from trying so hard to be extra nice and know your way around. Same goes for them! We start Kindergarten...

Frozen Strawberry Pie

Frozen Strawberry Pie

Summer isn't quite over yet! I'm still loving warm temperatures and cool treats! This frozen strawberry pie, featuring Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk, is easy to make and can be made ahead and left in the freeze until you are ready to serve it to your guests. Even better is that it is easy enough that my kids were able to get in the kitchen and help make it with me. I love when that happens! Frozen Strawberry Pie Graham Cracker Crust Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups of crushed graham crackers. (My kids love to help with this part!) 1/2...

// I know I'm not the only one who's finding themselves eating out a bit more this summer right?

So, if that break comes in the form of a relaxing dinner out. I'm all for it. That being said, where we eat said dinner out has to be some place that works for the kids. Thank goodness for Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen! You may remember when we partnered with them last...

Easy Oven Fried Chicken That Kids Love

Oven Fried Chicken for Kids

My kids are pretty picky, especially when it comes to meat. For some reason they are easier on side dishes than they are the main event.

It is truly delicious and adds a lot of flavor to another night of chicken. Yet it is simple enough to make for a weeknight meal and requires very little clean up. It's a total win!

Stress Free Dinners with Gobble

Gobble Dinner Cards

I used to love to make dinner. And then I had two rowdy boys. I still really love to cook but it has become way more of a challenge. I'm often trying to get dinner on the table before some sort of activity (tee ball has ruled our lives lately) and my husband is commuting home. I'm sure most of you are no stranger to the scene of trying to get a healthy, good quality meal together while kids run around you asking you questions and generally being loud and distracting. It's that time of...
