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. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. 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...]

Baked Chicken Parmigiana Casserole Recipe #KRAFTandHUNTS

Baked Chicken Parmigiana Casserole Recipe #KRAFTandHUNTS

I have been selected by Kraft Foods to be an ambassador for KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese and HUNT’S Tomatoes. While I have been compensated for my time, my opinions are my own. During the week nights, our typical routine starts with the kids coming home from school, getting home work done, and some down time for the kids while I prep dinner. After that, it's bed time routines and a good night's sleep for everyone. Between that, I need to find … [Read more...]

Stove Top and Slow Cooker Taco Soup Recipe

30 Minute Taco Soup Recipe

I am a compensated “Cans Get You Cooking” ambassador. This morning our family woke up to a picturesque winter wonderland. Since we're seriously considering moving to Florida within the next 1-2 years, I couldn't help but take in the beauty of everything around us covered in soft, white snow.  Living in Illinois for most of my life, it's something you tend to take for granted since it's part of every winter here.  This could very well be our last … [Read more...]

Maple Dijon Baked Chicken Legs and Potatoes Recipe

Maple Dijon Chicken Legs and Potatoes Recipe

During the cool, winter months in Illinois, I tend to utilize my oven and slow cooker the most for cooking meals. Stove-top skillet dishes are great for the summer and keeping the house cool but they don't always deliver the tenderness and concentration of flavors that only the oven can do. That's even more true when it comes to chicken. In my book, there's nothing more delicious than baked chicken legs. They're a favorite among the kids, mostly … [Read more...]

New England Pot Roast Kraft Recipe Makers #Shop

The first quarter of the school year is just about finished for our three kids. I'd like to think I've found my groove when it comes to managing our often very busy schedule. I still have those days, you know, the ones where you find yourself completely exhausted by the time the kids get off the school bus. On days like those, the last thing I want to do is stand over the stove cooking. I often know when a day like that is coming and plan ahead … [Read more...]

Feed a Crowd with this Shepherd’s Pie Recipe

Shepherd's Pie Recipe

I am a compensated “Cans Get You Cooking” ambassador. This weekend we made our weekly stock-up trip to the grocery store. While there, I saw the canned veggies were on sale and decided to stock my pantry up with enough canned food essentials to last us several months. During the winter months we use a lot of canned vegetables because they make homemade cooking easy and the canning process locks in foods’ freshness. We can enjoy our favorite … [Read more...]

Supreme Pizza Pockets Recipe with Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

Pizza Crescent Pockets Recipe

Dinnertime during the weeknights in this house can only be described as chaotic. Like many families with children in school, we face our own share of busy schedules from homework to football practice. Some nights I find that I have less than a half an hour to squeeze in a meal before it's time to get the kids showered and tucked into bed. On those nights I look into the fridge for products that are quick, easy and delicious. One of those … [Read more...]

Slow Cooker Chicken Parmigiana Sandwiches Recipe | FoodFamilyFinds.com

When my husband and find ourselves incredibly bored, you might find us having morbid discussions. Not weird or creepy but more like planning strategies ... where do you want me to put your ashes?, will you remarry?, who will go first? ... semi-normal stuff. Sometimes we even talk about the last thing you would want to eat before you die. His answer changes often but for me, it's a big bowl of pitted black olives and the best chicken parmigiana … [Read more...]
