Tantalizing Turkey and Sweet Potato Meatballs

I always thought I wasn’t a meatball kind of girl. I hated the meatballs that sat on top of my spaghetti. The mere mention of them ruined a perfectly good meal. Maybe it was the cheese that was hidden in every single batch, or the mix of pork, veal, and beef that seemed ever present where we dined. So it was out of complete desperation and boredom with our weekly...

4 quick and easy dinner ideas that are toddler approved

We’ve been eating some really delicious meals lately. So delicious, in fact, that The Husband and I have both decided that they all need to become regular features on our weekly menu.

Needless to say, most recipes I make these days are quick, easy, and something that won’t kill The Babe if she’s in the kitchen...

Need a little motivation for your menu plan?

Today was a quiet one. Between the snow (yes, SNOW) and a Toddler Alarm Clock that went off wayyyyy too early this morning, we kept it low pretty low key. We had breakfast, we played with beans, we had lunch, we cleaned the house, and I perused Pinterest for a solid hour and a half putting together our menu for the week. Because I’m a total giver, I thought it...
