Summer Home Ec

Summer Home Ec

It’s so funny to me how often homeschoolers will pick a whole other curriculum for summer and their kids are so excited! Mine worked hard all year and finished two weeks ago. Now, they are already asking me about the summer school ideas they had. […]

Spicy Chuck and Meat Claw Review

Spicy Chuck and Meat Claw Review

Just heads up, I talk about meat claws from Cave Tools in this post, and yes I was sent the product to review. My review however, is unbiased and honest. My family likes to try out new recipes, but they are so married to their […]

Cornbread Stuffed Jalapeños

Cornbread Stuffed Jalapeños

Menu Monday is back by popular demand – who knew you guys cared about Menu Monday?! Thanks for the emails, ladies! 😉 I write out the menu and usually stick it somewhere visible in the kitchen. Wee One #1, who has all of a sudden […]

Pioneer Woman Dr Pepper Shredded Pork

Pioneer Woman Dr Pepper Shredded Pork

I love me some Ree Drummond (aka The Pioneer Woman), I love her too much to post recipes from her book on my blog – hoooowever, she has posted some recipes from her book on her blog and I feel comfortable sharing those. Not all […]

Man Pleasing Chicken

Man Pleasing Chicken

So as I mentioned about eleventy billion times last month, we took a road trip out to Las Vegas to celebrate our first American Thanksgiving with our dear friend Nichole and her four children! She is originally from the south and I am..well, I’m me, […]

Mini Chicken Pot Pies

Mini Chicken Pot Pies

Chicken Pot Pie is one of those meals that pretty much all of us are happy with, though Wee One #2 still picks out the corn. What’s with that? Corn is the hardly-even-a-vegetable vegetable that kids actually eat! Anyhoo, so she ‘hates corn’ but otherwise […]

Bacon-Cheddar Potato Rounds

Bacon-Cheddar Potato Rounds

It’s no secret that I’m big on full-out meal planning, so of course I have been trying to map out a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration – especially since this year it involves a longish road trip and a long time, long distance friend. It’s also no […]
