Salted Caramel Monkey Bread #recipe #streamteam

Breakfast is the most important meal of my day. I love having something special and delicious first thing in the morning like chocolate chip waffles or Nutella and banana pancakes. Basically I just like having chocolate and candy for breakfast. One of my favorite special breakfasts to have is monkey bread. Its essentially just biscuits […]

CHA-Hoisin-Glazed-Roasted-Chicken-Wings

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Texas Pete for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Something happened with Rob’s palette 2years ago. He started craving super spicy foods and adding hot sauce to everything. Now when it’s time to set the table for any meal the kids are required to […]




Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats #kidsinthekitchen

Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats #recipe #kidsinthekitchen #cereal #sweettreats

Afterschool snacks tend to be healthy and on the small side so they don’t interfere with dinner. But there comes that moment when the kids are wanting something different than celery with peanut butter or a yogurt. That’s when the genius of Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats happens. I honestly think these are better than traditional […]




Turkey Pesto Meatball Sandwiches #kidsinthekitchen

Turkey Pesto Meatballs #recipe #kidsinthekitchen #foodie #cookingwithkids

“Mom, how about we make up our own cookie recipe for kids in the kitchen?”. That was Shae’s idea for this week’s post. I told her we needed a little more time to research existing cookie recipes to see what would work. Instead we made a family dinner that everyone loved, Pesto Turkey Meatball Sandwiches […]




Grilled Spicy Pork Kabobs #recipe

Grilled Spicy Pork Kabobs #recipe

Cooking is an adventure in our house. I’m often scrambling around 2pm thinking of what can thaw quickly or what I have that’s easy to eat. I’m great at meal planning it’s following through on that plan is where I fail. My family eats well though because I always pull through with something delicious. These […]




Making Her Own Birthday Cake #kidsinthekitchen

Making Her Own Birthday Cake #KidsintheKitchen #happybirthday

We celebrate this week. It was Shae’s 7th birthday. Early in the week she decided on her dinner and birthday cake; homemade meatloaf and vanilla cake with vanilla frosting.  Simple enough right. Well I’m good with the meatloaf, it something my kids really really love but I’m not a good cake baker. I can make an […]




Pizza Night #familyfavorites

Pizza Night with Classico Sauces #familyfavorites #shop #cbias

Each Friday is Pizza night in our home. It’s a way to make #familyfavorites into a lovely family gathering putting tasty ingredients together into a meal we can all enjoy. Homemade Pizza starts with homemade dough. This is one of my least favorite things to do (such a mess) but it’s so worth it. I’ve […]




Salad and Sandwich Bites #kidsinthekitchen

Salad and Sandwich Bites #KidsintheKitchen

It’s almost time to go back to school and Shae and I are working on some new lunch ideas. I’m trying to stick with healthy options but I also want her to enjoy what she’s eating to that means getting her input. These mini Salad and Sandwich Bites are a great compromise. She likes bologna. […]

Panko Crusted Cod #recipe #fivestarhomefoods

One of the very first dishes I made with my Five Star Home Foods delivery was Panko Crusted Cod.  I’m not one to fry my food, like ever so I baked this dish. Fish is one of those meals that everyone eats, but unfortunately I don’t make very often.  I’m picky about my fish, I […]




Sautéed Shrimp and Risotto #kidsinthekitchen

Sautéed Shrimp and Risotto #kidsinthekitchen

Sometimes dinner gets fancy. Especially when Shae starts leafing through my cookbooks. This is how our Sautéed Shrimp and Risotto dish happened. I feel like this is has been the most involved Shae has been in a meal preparation EVER. She definitely took all the credit for dinner this night. Rightfully so too. She peeled […]
