Well, it's starting to seem like I don't put anything but meal plans on here! But oh well, here it is! The week ahead. May it go smoothly for us all!! Sunday - Chili. My husband makes a very classic version, and it's so good. We pile on corn chips, cheese and onion. I'll get … Continue reading Meal Plan This Week.
Monday - Crockpot Carnitas Rice Bowls. We've gotten a carnitas roast from Aldi a few times before and it is SO good and so easy. You just toss it all in the crockpot and cook like a normal roast. I'll make rice and a side of black beans when I get home from school and … Continue reading Meal Plan This Week.
Is it brown butter or is it browned butter? My research has brought back answers for both. Whichever way you want to say it - I do believe it may be God’s greatest gift to man, much as I love my children. And around this time of year I can’t get enough of it. The … Continue reading Applesauce Cake with Brown Butter Frosting.
Monday - Flank Steak, roast brussels & crispy potatoes. My husband makes the best flank steak marinade. I dream about it! Doing Labor Day right and wrapping up summer with all the good stuff. Tuesday - Chicken Enchiladas. We don’t really follow a recipe for this one. Put the chicken in the crock pot in … Continue reading Meal Plan This Week.
This week’s meal plan for the curious! Monday - BLTs with tater tots and salad - I always try to keep Monday nights easy, so I’ll make the bacon in the oven (at 400 on a foil lined pan for about 20 minutes), slice up some heirloom tomatoes, add iceberg lettuce because it has the … Continue reading Meal Plan This Week.
I love a big old layer cake for a birthday or big party, but for a special little weekend treat or a mid-week pick me up, make it tiny. I don't need a big cake lingering around my kitchen tempting me (and my children) for too long. Just big enough for a Sunday dessert and … Continue reading A Small Blackberry Cake.
Something about the school year starting just turns me into this kitchen monster. It’s like I have to spend time in the kitchen. I think it’s being out of the house all day, and the fact that our kitchen is one of my favorite places on earth and cooking and baking is one way that … Continue reading Meal Plan This Week.
Way back in April, I started planning out my May bakes. I’ve talked about my monthly planning process before, but if you missed it - I usually plan the entire month of bakes all at once. Usually one or two things a week - something dessert-y and something breakfast-y/afterschool snack-y. It keeps me on track … Continue reading How to Make Letter Donuts.
We have gone through many, many chocolate chip cookies. I just feel like a home with three little boys and two adults should have homemade cookies on the counter at (nearly) all times. And let's agree that of the multitude of cookie options in the world - chocolate chip cookies are the best. Sure, I … Continue reading My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe.
Don’t know if you’re keeping track, but there are exactly 21 days in which to fit as many heart themed treats as humanly possible. I just counted. So far at our house, we’ve made heart shaped chocolate chip cookies, sprinkled heart shaped sprinkles on everything we’ve eaten, made heart shaped banana muffins in a heart … Continue reading Heart Hand Pies.
