Creamy Vegetable Casserole Side Dish Recipe #CansGetYouCooking

Creamy Vegetable Casserole with Panko Recipe #CansGetYouCooking

Since I grew up with a mom that loves to cook homemade meals, it only seems right that I share that some love of cooking. It wasn't until my 20's that I developed that passion but that doesn't mean I didn't pick up a few tips and tricks from her along the way. One of the biggest tips I got from my mom was to keep a pantry (or better yet a cantry) stocked full of canned vegetables and fruits. Why? Because canned foods make homemade easy! Rather … [Read more...]

Make Mealtime Fun with an Ore-Ida® Golden Crinkles® Toppings Bar #OreIdaMom


In a house of five people, three of which are children, we often find mealtimes to be quite the struggle. We all have vastly different preferences when it comes to food. However, there's one thing we can all agree on and that's our love of potatoes. Since I grew up in a house that had a potato side dish with every single meal, it was hard not to pass that tradition on in my own house. We still find a way to incorporate potatoes into every meal … [Read more...]

Creamy Parmesan Garlic Alfredo Sauce Recipe with Silk Almondmilk #SilkLove #MyBloom

Creamy Parmesan Garlic Alfredo Made with Silk Almondmilk #SilkLove #MyBloom

As far back as I can remember, I've absolutely loved and even craved the taste of dairy products. This wouldn't be a problem except my body didn't love them back. For years I assumed I suffered with lactose intolerance because of the constant tummy aches, bloating and list of other symptoms you'd probably rather not know about. It wasn't until a few years ago that I actually came to discover my issue is actually a milk allergy, or "whey" protein … [Read more...]

5 Minute Veggie Dinner Salad with the Magimix Food Processor

5 Minute Family Sized Veggie Dinner Salad with Magimix Food Processor

I was provided with a product sample to share my experiences. I have this quirky love for preparing dinner. Well, any meal really. Except for breakfast, that one always makes me feel like a crazed short order cook trying to time everything just right. But in general, my favorite part of the meal is preparing the food. I actually find it quite relaxing to slowly dice vegetables, sear meat and watch a pot as it begins to boil. I'd do it every … [Read more...]

Parmesan & Onion Panko Crusted Vegetable Casserole Recipe

Panko Crusted Vegetable Casserole Recipe

Every Christmas Eve, our family comes together in the kitchen to cook up a smorgasbord of food. And every single Christmas, it's the exact same ham with all of the same sides. I wouldn't call it boring (even though it feels that way sometimes) but it definitely traditional, for our family. This year I want to mix things up a bit. We'll still have the delicious glazed ham we always have but I'm going to try out some new side dishes. I'm going … [Read more...]

On the Grill | Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Recipe

Grilled Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Recipe

They say that bacon makes everything better. As a total bacon lover, I'm inclined to agree, especially when my husband suggested asparagus for dinner. Yuck! Up until now I've had one and only one experience with asparagus. And let me tell you, it wasn't a good experience. The vegetable was slimy, soft and covered in a foul smelling sauce (probably hollandaise sauce). I'm pretty sure I gagged when I tried it considering I gag a little when I … [Read more...]
