Recipe Redux: Slow Cooker Mediterranean Salmon

I really wasn’t sure I was going to take part in this month’s Recipe Redux as I knew I would be busy at the annual food and nutrition convention of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. However, when I saw the theme, The No-Casserole Crock Pot, I knew I couldn’t miss it. Those of you […]

Cookbook Review: 365 Slow Cooker Suppers

I received a complimentary digital copy via NetGalley of 365 Slow Cooker Suppers by Stephanie O’Dea to review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  I have discussed many times before my love of the slow cooker. I have 2 programmable ones, a 3.5 quart and a 6 quart. If you are a regular follower […]

Share What’s Good: Family-Style Meals

Disclaimer: This post is part of Welch’s Share What’s Good campaign, for which I was compensated. All thoughts and opinions are my own.   I am a big believer in the family gathering together around the dinner table often.

Menu Plan Monday – July 15

How do you handle meals for your family if you are out of town? I’m actually gone 4 days this week to a conference, which is probably the longest I’ve ever been away since we had children. Even for short trips though, I always try to leave the refrigerator and freezer well-stocked with staples, leftovers […]

Say Yes to 4 of Children’s Favorites Foods

But these foods aren’t generally on the top of parent’s lists for what to feed their children. In a recent […]

Slow Cooker Thai Chicken and Vegetable Curry

This past weekend we went to our local farmers market. It is the first time I’ve been this season. We always have other things going on, but I was glad to finally make it. I was working on a post for another site about taking children to the farmers market, so I decided to take my […]

Menu Plan Monday – June 3

I was actually on vacation last week and now that we are back, I’m trying to get back on track! Yes, I still had a menu plan last week – we had to eat something while we were away, but I didn’t want to be cooking the whole week either. Expect a post soon about vacation […]

Menu Plan Monday – April 8

Our children had Spring Break this past week and we took a day to go to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens to see all of the tulips in bloom, which were stunning. Thankfully it wasn’t too cool and it had stopped raining. The kids loved it, as always. We got a family pass this past year […]

Menu Plan Monday – March 4

Before I get to the food this past week, which there were some home run dishes, I wanted to share my wonderful news. I was honored by the Georgia Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics with the Distinguished Service to the Media Award. I was so excited to be presented with this award as I love […]
