Pumpkin Pasta

Posted by on Nov 16, 2013 in Be Inspired, Featured Posts, In The Kitchen | 1 comment

I stumbled upon this recipe about 6 years ago when I was craving fall food, but didn’t have the budget for anything extravagant.  I had fun tweaking it that night and for many nights after.  I love the creamy pumpkin sauce paired with the hit of nutmeg and the feeling that I’m eating something indulgent, when in reality, I’m not. Some things...

Bacon, Egg, and Avocado Wrap

Two weeks ago I joined some fellow MOPS moms on a trip to Kansas City.  No kids, no to-do lists, just 5 days of mom time, which included 18 hours on the open road.  All of us, at a certain point, just wanted to get there, so when Denny’s presented itself as a fast, but not fast food option, we went for it.  And I ordered a sandwich that I...

Cream of Broccoli Soup

Posted by on Oct 15, 2013 in Be Inspired, Featured Posts, In The Kitchen | 1 comment

Growing up, my family went out to dinner every Saturday night.  For probably 10 years, I ordered the same thing each week: Cream of Broccoli soup.  I just couldn’t get enough!  There’s something nostalgic about this soup for me.  With one bite, I’m transported back to dark nights cuddled in a cozy booth with my family, blowing...

Adventures in Applesauce

Adventures in Applesauce

  Somewhere, deep inside, I’m a little bit of a prepper. Or at least a wannabe prepper. Not the weapon-hoarding kind (yikes!)….the living-off-the-land-and-being-able-to-survive-the-winter kind. How did the pioneer women of early America do it? I’ve been wanting to get better at preserving fresh food so this...

Chocolate and Caramel Popcorn Munch

I have had some major sugar cravings lately.  Since it seems a little extreme that I’ve been making a case for Mcdonalds softserve as a quality family outing each night, I’ve been trying to find alternative snacks that curb the craving in a more healthful way.  Paging through my March 2013 edition of Clean Eating, I came across a...

A Healthier {and cute!} School Birthday Treat

I consider this bumblebee birthday treat to be my first mom triumph of the school year. This is my son’s second year in preschool and with an early September birthday, I felt a little rushed and a little bit apprehensive about him having “the first birthday” of the year. Also, his school really frowns on super...

Pasta Marinara

Posted by on Sep 6, 2013 in Be Inspired, Featured Posts, In The Kitchen | 0 comments

When I set out to share this recipe, I was going to tell you about how I realized that pasta was heavy and homey and really a better recipe suited for fall or winter.  I wanted to add that I realized it was still summer and how you might not even want to be thinking about cold weather yet or warming up over a steaming bowl of spaghetti.  I was...

The {End of Summer} Macaroni Salad

Summer is coming to an end. The school year is starting. Those hot lazy evenings rocking on the front porch are soon to be over. At this point in the season I always feel that I have to have “just one more” summer experience before it all ends. Just one more trip to the beach. Just one more dig in the garden. Just one more meander...

Summer Salsa

Posted by on Aug 22, 2013 in Be Inspired, In The Kitchen | 0 comments

Back in the day before internet recipes, Pinterest, and the Food Network, I used to pull out my mother’s recipe cards or read through cookbooks to get good kitchen ideas.  I have a vivid memory of sitting on the couch while babysitting paging through the family’s cooking magazine they subscribed to and writing down recipes on little...
