Mine is a family of foodies. We eat real food meals ninety-nine percent of the time, with the occasional quick dinner of crackers and cheese thrown in every once in awhile for good measure. We also tend to eat with the seasons, opting for grilled meals most summer nights and baked casseroles or soups in… Continue reading CHICKEN FAJITA CORNBREAD BAKE
You might have noticed that I’ve developed and shared quite a few Instant Pot recipes here on the blog.

With spring sports starting back up, our weeknight family schedule is quickly getting out of hand. Yours, too? One of the hardest parts of that reality, for me, is that dinner becomes problematic.

Fudge and Chex Mix aren’t super… Continue reading WARM WINTER SALAD WITH ORANGE MAPLE BOURBON VINAIGRETTE
Truth be told, I’m not so much a sloppy joe type of girl. When I hear “sloppy joe” my mind goes to the third grade hot lunch line and the line that snakes out the door of the library of my tiny private school. Inside the library Jonathon Oliver’s mom scoops ladles full of ground… Continue reading TURKEY SLOPPY JOES ON APPLE CHEDDAR BISCUITS
I’m not sure what it says about us but if I’m being 100% honest with you I have to admit that one of our go-to road trip meal stops is and probably always will be Cracker Barrel. It’s basically cafeteria food but something about the experience of eating there feels safe and comfortable and so… Continue reading INSTANT POT CHICKEN AND RICE
What’s your favorite way to eat sweet potatoes? When I was young, I think we only ate sweet potatoes once each year. Every Thanksgiving we’d dump the canned variety into a casserole dish, sprinkle them with brown sugar, top them with mini marshmallows and pop the whole thing in the oven. Pretty much anything topped… Continue reading BBQ CHICKEN STUFFED SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE
