Easy End of the Week Dinner

As it gets colder out, I begin trying to keep frozen stuffed pastas on hand. After a stressful week and a birthday sleepover that started four hours early I was very low on energy or motivation for dinner. Add to that the pile of dishes and dirty pots from the party (which I’ve already doneContinue reading “Easy End of the Week Dinner”

Dinner Now, Dinner Later

Once again, I’m getting back on track. Every time I do, it starts with food. I had a couple ideas for meals and set off for the grocery store with my youngest. We have been eating abysmally lately and it shows. Digestive issues, sluggishness, and awful moods with tempers flying. Tonight I made rice withContinue reading “Dinner Now, Dinner Later”

Cooking with Nothing

Another meal created by playing ‘what’s hiding in the kitchen?‘. Egg noodles, leftover cooked ground turkey, kidney beans, peas, corn, and cheese. I cooked the pasta and put the frozen corn and peas in the oven with butter. After heating that for a bit I mixed in the beans and ground turkey. Salt, pepper, mincedContinue reading “Cooking with Nothing”

Motivated to Cook!

These are the two latest magazines in my recipe collection. They are chalk full of amazing ideas and I’ve made a couple meals so far, even if they become something fairly different in my kitchen. Tonight we’re having cheese topped black bean burgers with sweet potatoes and rice with veggies. It feels really good toContinue reading “Motivated to Cook!”

Waffle Iron Inspiration

When it comes to cooking at home, I have been really uninspired for a while. Meal planning has not been successful. Grocery shopping has been off the chore list. Our diet has been crap. So I bought some recipe magazines filled with things I’ll actually make. My mom visited and is great at setting theContinue reading “Waffle Iron Inspiration”

Comforting Grilled Cheese

One of my favorite Fall and Winter meals is grilled cheese and tomato soup. I actually checked out a cook book from the library solely about grilled cheese and it was amazing, but I still like to keep it pretty simple. Another sheet pan meal in this house. I baked all the bacon first andContinue reading “Comforting Grilled Cheese”

Apple Pie Cookies and Spiced Pear Muffins

Since I had a plan this week, baking has been happening. The girls were so excited to help out and this recipe is really easy to let them. It takes a bit of doing, so they lost interest after a while, but it was fun while it lasted. They made for a wonderful bedtime snackContinue reading “Apple Pie Cookies and Spiced Pear Muffins”
