Healthy Slow Cooker Fajitas

If you have been following me you know that a little over a week ago my father in law had 2 heart attacks in one night and then had to have open heart surgery a day later. This was an eye-opening experience for all of us. Especially when it comes to how we take care…

My Quest To Save Money On Fresh Produce

I have been in a major cooking rut the past month or so. I can’t even tell you what I have been cooking because I seriously have no idea. I am trying to put together next weeks meal plan and I really need to focus on eating healthy and fresh. Especially since it’s a holiday…

Beef Tacos

I am a pretty simple girl, there’s no doubt about that. This dish is as simple as it gets. I grew up having beef tacos weekly so it’s not surprising that I cook beef tacos nearly every week as an adult. It’s one of the first things that I was taught to cook as a…

5 Ingredient Egg Bake

That’s right you can have a delicious egg breakfast with only 5 ingredients. What’s great is that these 5 ingredients are items I usually always have on hand. I had a play date arranged with one of my best friends and I wanted to have a little something for us to munch on when they arrived.…

Creamy Spaghetti

Who doesn’t love spaghetti? Surely not me. Within the last year I have started making my spaghetti differently then how I had it growing up. It’s not because that way was bad, trust me it was delicious, it’s because I realized that I prefer my spaghetti a bit more creamy. (Translation…fattening) This recipe is as simple…

Couponing- Bad For My Waist Line

Couponing is new to me so of course its exciting and fun, but boy has it been addicting! I think my husband has started to get annoyed with my new hobby and I don’t blame him! Between the amount of time I spend researching deals and all the junk food that has entered my house in…

Homemade Classic White Frosting

I made cupcakes over the weekend for a birthday party and I feel the need to share the frosting recipe because it is so delicious. I have to say since taking cake decorating classes and getting a KitchenAid mixer I RARELY buy canned frosting. It was a bit of trial and error finding the perfect…
