When I think of family traditions pasta and Ragu come to mind right away. My husband and myself absolutely adore pasta and it is a tradition for us to have it at least once a week for good measure. We usually like to switch it up and try some new things and that is something that we have chosen as a resolution this year, branching out and trying new flavors. This past week I mixed something new and old together. I decided to merge Italian Baked Eggs and Baked Penne to come up with this amazing Italian Baked Egg Penne.
If you guys follow by blog the you know that I’m from the great state of Minnesota. Land of 10,000 lakes, endless trails, wildlife, and what we are most known for…the cold. Yeah, well it’s November 17th and it is raining. Yes raining. This time last year it was blizzard like, but it’s been in the 60’s this week and just beautiful…minus the rain. Read more
Who doesn’t love copycat recipes this Honey Pepper Chicken Mac and Cheese is an at home Applebee’s version that is a serious hit!
I have noticed that I have a lot of dessert recipes on my blog. Whoops. I totally am not apologizing for that at all. Dessert is my favorite meal of the day. I always always always have a dessert around my house. They are fun to make and even more fun to eat. Although my thighs may not agree with me on that aspect. But I realize that I have to switch it up time and time again and give you guys some other good stuff…say a pasta dinner dish? Read more
Hey everyone, another Monday is upon us. This is the last week my kids have off before school starts. I think there are mixed emotions in this household. I know that they miss their friends, but I know that they are going to miss being able to do whatever they want as well. Hopefully it will be an easy adjustment them getting up daily at a certain time again. Usually they are pretty good at it, but my 8-year-old has had some problems in the past of wanting to get up and stay up. Read more
Hey everyone. Friday is already upon us. To me right now it actually doesn’t make much of a difference. My daughter has been sick since Wednesday so all the day’s have been sort of mashing into one another! Had to bring her into the ER last night around midnight because she was in so much pain but apparently it’s only cold so we have to wait it out. My poor princess. Anyways, I hope your week is going better than mine so far! Read more
You guys, I feel so out of the loop. I seriously don’t adjust well to coming back from vacations. The unpacking, the washing, the cleaning, the putting things back in order. Usually takes me a while since I’m so meticulous about it. For some reason I just can’t get back into the swing of things. It doesn’t help that I come back and I have activity after activity that I need my kids to go to. Ugh, parenthood. Gotta love it! Soon I will hopefully be back to my normal self. Read more
Ever since I came across the concept of one pot meals I have been in love. It has saved me so much time and so many dishes that it is amazing. Anything that can be done in one pan and doesn’t have to be made in the crockpot will always catch my eye! Read more
Is anyone else as happy as I am that summer is nearing? This is my most favorite time of year. I live in Minnesota and the majority of our year is spent in the cold weather. Heck, just the other day it was 40 degrees out and now today its 75. Mother nature here just cannot make up her mind. I can in all honestly say that after my kids grow up and start their lives I am going to be a snow bird. Read more
