Get Kids Cooking with Campbell’s Cheesy Potato Casserole #MmGood

Kid with Cheesy Potato Casserole

Over the past few months I've been working closely with the Campbell Soup Company and sharing those hilarious Wisest Kid in the Whole World videos. It has definitely been a lot of fun and I hope I've helped inspire your family to cook together in the kitchen and try some new recipes as much as my own. Personally, we discovered a fun way to make kid friendly green bean casserole cups for the holidays and even put a twist on an old favorite, spider … [Read more...]

Hearty Beef Stew Recipe #RecipeRehab #beef #mc #sponsored

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for the Certified Angus Beef® brand.

When you grow up in central Illinois, you have a pretty good understanding of what comfort food is. If you had a mother that loved to cook like mine, comfort food may be all you know. I almost feel like I was spoiled as a kid because my … [Read more...]

Weeknight Meal Inspiration with KRAFT Grated Parmesan and HUNT’S Tomatoes

Garlic Parmesan Cheese Stuffed Breadsticks

This is partnered post on behalf of KRAFT and HUNT'S. If you've spent any time at all on my blog, you'll know that cooking and baking are passions of mine. What you may not know is that hasn't always been the case. There was a time early on in my marriage when I could burn boiled water and a successful dinner was one that didn't result in a burned down kitchen and food that was any shade lighter than charred black. Cooking meals for a family is … [Read more...]

January Is National Soup Month! #MmGood

Emma Campbells Chicken Noodle Soup #MmGood

Did you know that January is National Soup Month? It seems rather fitting since January is often one of the coldest months of the year. There's nothing that warms up the tummy faster than a bowl of hot soup on a cold winter day.

There wasn't a day that went by during summer … [Read more...]

How to Stock Your Freezer for Smoothies

How to Stock Your Freezer for Smoothies

I have never been much of a breakfast person. Truth is, I usually wake up a little nauseous, especially if I get up earlier than my body really wants to be up. The thought of food before noon is not at all appealing and unfortunately, it's a big problem. Breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day and gives you that kick of energy you need to get through it. Since food is the last thing on my mind at 9am and I really do want to make … [Read more...]

Campbells Tomato Soup Dippable Fun

Last weekend we had our first big snow of the year.  After an afternoon of fun and sledding with the kid, we brought them back into our cozy, warm house for some dippable fun! Campbell’s Condensed Tomato soup has always been a staple in my pantry since the big kid in me still likes to have a bowl and dip my grilled cheese right in there. But you’d be surprised to know there are a lot of other ways to use tomato soup. For instance, tomato soup … [Read more...]

12 Apple Pie Inspired Recipes for Fall

12 Sweet Apple Pie Inspired Recipes Collection

When I think about fall coming, my mind often wanders to trees changing colors, Halloween costumes and baking. More specifically, baking with apples. This time of year our local orchards are selling fresh picked apples, cider and cider donuts as fast as they can put them on the table. We often visit our local Apple Barn for many of those treats but mostly for the fresh apples. I use them to make all sorts of treats from applesauce to my much … [Read more...]
