Do you plan your meals ahead of time?  Over the years, I’ve done my family’s meal planning in various forms – anything from planning it in my head, writing out a plan on paper, and writing it down in every detail.  Sometimes I even go to the store without a specific plan and work backwards after seeing what is on sale and what looks good.  All...

I love the convenience of using my slow cooker.  With just a little pre-planning for dinner, you can just throw a few ingredients in the slow cooker in the morning and come home to dinner being ready to serve.  Just because I blog about food doesn’t mean I like to spend hours in the kitchen preparing dinner.  But after a while of making primarily soups in...

I’ve been thinking about trying to make some of my own condiments but haven’t ventured there yet.  Honestly, I don’t use a lot of condiments on my food.  But I found a great deal on a brisket so that obviously demands some BBQ sauce.  I looked and looked for a clean version but didn’t have any luck.  Everything I found had high fructose...

My family loves, loves, love Mexican food of any kind.  That’s actually one of the few types of food we all always agree on.  So it’s no surprise that this Cilantro Lime Chicken was a big hit with all of us.  I love that it’s so easy to make, can be prepped the night before, and just thrown in the oven or on the grill.  It’s another healthy...

You may have noticed from some of the other recipes that I’ve posted like this salsa verde, salsa chicken, refried beans, or chicken tortilla soup that my family LOVES Mexican food.  We could eat it almost every day!  For the last few days, my daughter has been begging me to make guacamole and then I realized that I’ve never even published a recipe...
