Whether we’re grilling in our backyard or taking our favorite dishes to the local park, our family is enjoying the time together surrounded by food that’s full of flavor and as little time spent in the kitchen as possible.

Cheddar Bacon BBQ Grilled Potatoes Recipe

This past weekend, we really got a chance to enjoy the nice weather after days and days of clouds and cold temperatures. To enjoy and celebrate the beautiful spring temperatures, we had a little family cookout with a special guest ....the 35th anniversary limited-edition blend of KC Masterpiece® Kansas City Classic barbecue sauce. My husband, being a total lover of the grill and BBQ sauce had no objections and even and took over the grill while I … [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...]

Grilled Three Bean Casserole Recipe

Three Bean Grilled Baked Beans Recipe

I am a compensated "Cans Get You Cooking" ambassador. Our 4th of July started with a 3 hour trip to the local water park. Since we splurged on season passes this year, we're spending a ton of time there. The kids get worn out, I get to relax and everyone gets to escape the hum-drum boredom of daily chores. Since it was a holiday we cut out a bit early and made a quick trip to Country Market to get some grilling supplies. Yay for a night … [Read more...]

Cast Iron Skillet Hobo Potatoes Recipe

Cast Iron Skillet Home Fries

It was Monday afternoon, we had just gotten kicked out of the water park because of visible lightning in the area and someone popped the dreaded question. Mom, what's for dinner? Ugh. Sigh. Groan. I don't know. I never know. We don't have a cutesy "meal plan" because well, I'm just too lazy to think that far in advance. On most days, dinner is planned just an hour or two before it's consumed. Most of the time I like it that way because it … [Read more...]

Broccoli Cheddar Mac n Cheese Casserole Recipe

Broccoli Cheddar Mac n Cheese Casserole Recipe

*I was provided with a casserole kit and the prizes for the giveaway. Last month I was invited to join the Country Crock Casserole Club. This is pretty exciting because not only do I love to bake casseroles but my family loves to eat them. It's such an easy way to make lunch or dinner (and fewer dirty dishes). This month I was provided with a recipe card for inspiration and asked to put my own spin on it. Well, that's exactly what we did. I … [Read more...]

Rosemary Parmesan & Garlic Buttered Cast Iron Skillet Rolls Recipe

Rosemary Parmesan Garlic Cast Iron Skillet Rolls Recipe

I'm probably the last to know but apparently Easter is coming early this year, early as in MARCH. For some reason ever Easter I have in my memory took place in April when it was slightly warm. Actually the only Easter that really stands out in my mind was the one that happened on Sunday, April 15th, 2001 ... the day after my wedding. I remember because rather than having any sort of honeymoon I was stuck at a buffet with my in-laws and the rest … [Read more...]
