Love pumpkin, but don’t have time to bake an endless supply of yummy pumpkin muffins? Fall is one of my busiest times of the year so I totally get it.
Since I gave up eating flour and sugar the last thing I want to do is spend my time baking. What I always thought was a love of baking turned out to be just a love of eating all of the yummy stuff I would make! My family appreciates my efforts to be healthier, but I still like to whip up a treat for them every now and then, but fast, no bake options are the way I roll.
Long Term Food Storage Solutions for Beginners!
I am a true beginner with food storage. I have tried lots of different ways to get my pantry shelves full and ready for an emergency and I’ve discovered that some ways work better than others given my season of life. Here are a few I have tried that I feel are great for beginners!
Summer Slow Cooker Recipes
Slow Cooker recipes bring to mind brisk fall days and long snowy winters. When school is in session, life is busy, and swim season has started, the slow cooker saves my sanity.
I usually think of really heavy food coming out of my slow cooker, like soups and roasts, but I’ve been searching for lighter recipes lately that I can use to keep from heating up my tiny kitchen in the summer. For a yummy salad to go with your slow cooker meal be sure to check out my summer salad collection.
I have 3 chicken recipes, 3 beef/pork recipes, 3 meatless recipes and a few bonus recipes at the end I’m looking forward to trying.
Summer is such a fun time of year! I love the sun, swimming, cookouts, and of course, pretty summer salads. I’ve been pinning like crazy all of the salads I can’t wait to try this summer as side dishes or main dishes.
**They are in no particular order… well maybe the Mexican inspired ones will get made first. If you love south of the border recipes as much as I do be sure to check out my Mexican Recipe Round Up I prepared for Cinco De Mayo.
Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner and I’ve rounded up my absolute favorite south of the border dishes to share today!
Not so random Autism Story
You probably weren’t expecting an autism story in a recipe about my favorite Mexican recipe. 🙂
I have 2 big memories of Spencer eating food as a young child. One was the last time he ate cereal with milk. The other is the first time he ate a taco.
How I always Know What’s for Dinner!
It’s 4:00 in the afternoon and in the middle of homework, unexpected phone calls, tantrums, and an Elmo’s World episode blaring from my bedroom- I get asked that dreaded question…
“Mom, What’s for dinner?”
“Mom” is always somehow 2 syllables in my house at dinner time.
A while back I got smart and figured out the way to (almost) always know the answer to that question.
I’ll let you in on a little secret my family doesn’t even know…
