Revised Spaghetti and Meatballs

December 9, 2015

My kids can’t get enough of Trader Joes turkey meatballs. It has inspired me to search far and wide to make a recipe that they might enjoy half as much. I am obsessed with spaghetti squash and make it at least once a week. I’m not very exciting with it, just throw on some marinara and call it a meal. […]

Taco Tuesday!!!

December 1, 2015

We religiously celebrate Taco Tuesday.  It’s probably the one day during the week that I can count on almost everyone eating (and enjoying the meal).  Their favorite is just good old fashioned turkey tacos, usually with one of those “boat” style shells which are easy for little hands, and all the fixings (refried beans, cheese, lettuce, guac).   My husband, […]

Loaf of Yum

November 20, 2015

My family loves meatballs, which seem to translate over to a loaf of meat too. Across America meatloaf has often represented a basic family meal. The best part is that you can easily use 99% fat free ground turkey breast or ground chicken breast, which makes it low fat for the grown-ups. Add some ketchup for the kids and it’s […]

Food – the enemy part 2

November 6, 2014

I have always prided myself on making ONE meal for my family. Adam and I are not picky eaters and it seems to have rubbed off on Drew. Of course I try to find low fat meals that will work with kids’ preferences but I generally make healthy meals for us all to eat. In order to “earn” dessert which […]

The Ambiguous Side Dish

January 21, 2014

When attending a social gathering and one says “bring a side dish,” what does that really mean? A) Throw some pasta in a bowl and call it a side dish? B) Research an elaborate, meal alternative to impress the pants off of everyone attending? C) Pickup some slaw from Whole Foods or Sunset and pay WAY too much. D) Go […]

Feeling like Philly???

November 20, 2013

It’s a little trickier having families over when your daughter is allergic to dairy and can’t just have a normal pizza party. Recently we had a family over and wanted a relatively family friendly, low fat, EASY recipe. Thanks Rachel Thompson for this suggestion!!! Print Feeling like Philly???

And she finally cooks again!

April 19, 2013

Some would think I haven’t been playing around with recipes, and those people would be right. It seems that our house becomes full of extra chaos around dinner time, so I’ve been resorting to the easiest, oldies but goodies to feed my family. I have not stopped searching for recipes though so I decided to give these two a try… […]
