12 Snacks Under 100 Calories

Summer time means snack time to me.  We’re on the go, playing outside a lot, and just generally too hot to sit down and eat big meals.  In our family we snack a lot during the summer.  Since we snack so much, I want to make sure our snacks are quality food.  I like to […]

A few months ago I shared a few of my favorite healthy crock pot recipes.  I love them and apparently so do y’all, so I’m back to share a few more!  All of these recipes pass this Registered Dietitian’s test for a healthy dinner, and this mama’s need for something quick, easy, and delicious.  None […]

Super Simple Valentine’s Day Food

Valentine’s Day is coming up which means it’s time for me to think about any special food I’m going to fix.  We aren’t big Valentine’s Day people – never have been, but I do like to do something a little extra special when it comes to food.  Now that we have a fun 2 1/2 year […]

Super Bowl = Super Yum

Super Bowl = Super Yum

Confession time: not quite sure which teams are playing in the Super Bowl this year. Like millions of others across America, I’m approximately 0% interested in the game.  Since my day job is in Marketing, I’m looking forward to the commercials, but more so, the food. A couple of weeks ago we decided we’d host […]

Healthy Crockpot Meals

I love my crock pot!  It helps me make good food with little effort and even less time.  My mother-in-law once told me it used to be called the “working mom’s best friend.”  I’d say it’s just the mom’s cooking best friend, period. My problem with crock pot meals is that they can often involve […]

Getting Tough for 2014!

I normally don’t make New Year’s resolutions. I’m a list-/goal-oriented person, but never really stick with them. But this year, it seems a natural point to make some changes. While going through our 2013 paperwork for taxes, I have made the decision to really focus on couponing and reducing our family grocery budget. I actually taught classes […]

Popcorn

Home-Made Bagged Popcorn!

I don’t know about you, but my family goes through a TON of popcorn. We love it. My father-in-law got me one of those counter-top movie popcorn makers one Christmas because he knew I love it so much. While living in Italy, we were quite a way from the commissary, and as fast as we […]

Making Apple Butter

My friends and I got together this fall to make apple butter.  It was my first attempt at this homemade, crafty thing, so I didn’t know if it would turn out.  But I’m so glad I did it!  It was fun to do something I never thought I could do, to spend time with my […]
