Growing up beef and cheese enchiladas were always a favorite...that love has spilled over into my own little family as well. These are always a delicious, easy, comfort food that we enjoy. My mom always relied on the seasoning packet for these babies - 'cause lets face it - canned red sauce is...well...yucky. I actually really like the good ol' seasoning packet as well, but making homemade is nearly as easy and twice as good! You probably have all of the seasoning in your spice . . .
There are few things I enjoy more than a perfectly grilled steak. I love grilled meals period. Fast, tasty, and easy! My husband and I use a gas grill. We started off with charcoal, but converted to gas because of the convenience. No pre-heating, no waiting, just turn it on and go. Another thing I love about grilling is it give the family a chance to hang out outside while dinner is being cooked. Here's my oldest little goofball cruising' the patio in his cozy coupe after church while . . .
Summer is kicking off all over the country, air conditioners are cranking, the sun is going to bed later (and subsequently so are my kids) and summer foods are everywhere. I LOVE this season. I love so much about it- swimming, picnics, fresh farmers markets. Days at the lakes, nights under the stars. Summer is awesome. I love grilling. and while summer is paired with grilling I love grilling all year long. I love the taste of the food but more over I love that grilling produces a meal with very . . .
I know that a lot of people have strong feelings about meatloaf...and it is usually disdain. My husband is one of those people. He doesn't have the fondest memories of eating meatloaf. He thinks of them loaded with things he doesn't like. I...don't have those same feelings. Growing up my mom made the BEST meatloaf. She is a really simple eater and always made really simple food. We always looked forward to meatloaf and always gobbled it right up. We'd use the leftovers on sandwiches for . . .
Err? Green Machine Week? What the does that mean? WELLLL> I was trying to think of something we could do for St. Patricks Day so naturally I thought green. Second, I feel like between my busy schedule, my pregnant tired body and my husband stuck in busy season my diet has gone to pot. I want some inspiration to eat and take care of my body more healthily, flavorful and fun. So what not a week of healthy greens? For this meal First, You want to start off by marinating your meat in a . . .
Want a simple dinner with less than 4 ingredients? Seriously, it could be 3. Maybe 2 but probably 3. Slow-Cooker Italian Beef Sandwiches. Or some may call, Pepperoncini BeefLiterally all you need is a good beef roast and a bottle of pepperoncini's. The third ingredient is the bread to serve it on, and the fourth maybe a good cheese to broil on the buns. I went with some havarti cheese and it was perfect. So literally only 2 ingredients. Seems kinda weird right? Odd combo maybe? I thought . . .
Pot Roast smells like Sunday, and Sunday smells like Pot Roast. Even our dog knows when it is Sunday, because she gets a special treat of pot roast and gravy on her doggie food. It's a Sunday tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation on my mom's side of the family. They even all use the same roasting pan (pictured below). It just how we do it. How my mom does it. Her mom did it, and her mom did it....you get it :) Granted, it's not like we did . . .
Aubrey and I have another sister, she not of blood relation, but by all means you can tell she was meant to be apart of our family. At my brother's and her wedding a lady came up and started going on and on to me about how she- just by looks alone- seems like one of the Hardings. ohhh, Jesse. we love you :) One of her many talents is cooking. And despite my constant nagging to join up with us on this blog she respectfully declines...however she does bring me her favorite . . .
This is a recipe submission from our dear friend Christy. Her and her husband made it last week for the annual trunk or treat. Not only did they love its tastiness but they loved how easy it was...and so did the crowd! It was a hit at the party. They really wanted to share it! In fact when Geoff (Christy's husband) described how it was made he waved his hands in the air and said "its so easy you just add a little bleep and a little bloop. a touch of magic and boom!" haha I had a good . . .
watch: Daniel Wellington When I had a little 4 month old baby, I had a friend next door with a 4 month old baby too. We were both trying to finish up our last semesters of college and often we would switch babysitting during each other's classes. Kelly was a creative cook. It was because of Kelly and Ginny (my other neighbor...and wouldn't you know Jenna was also a neighbor who happens to be a fabulous cook!) that I really started branching out on my foods, became addicted to Food Network, and . . .
