4th of July Poke Cake

With 4th of July just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to take a spin on the traditional poke cake and make it a little more patriotic. Poke cake’s are very easy and great for hot summer days. They involve baking a cake from a box, poking holes all over the cake, […]

Pizzeria Garlic Knots

I love baking garlic bread to go along Italian dishes and these homemade garlic knots are my favorite. They’re very simple, kids love to help with knotting the dough, and they taste just as good as any Italian restaurant or pizzeria’s garlic bread and tons better than the frozen stuff. They also make a great […]

Crock Pot Steak Stroganoff

If you own a crock pot and are short on time then you’re going to love, love, love this recipe for easy Steak Stroganoff. I threw it together one morning when I was rushing to get out the door and had maybe 10 minutes to prep everything. I just dumped it all in my crock […]

Reuben Ring

My Dad and I were chatting the other day about favorite family recipes and my Mom’s Reuben Ring came up. We immediately started reminiscing about that delicious recipe my Mom discovered at a Pampered Chef party she went to. It has all the amazing flavors of a Reuben sandwich—corned beef, tangy thousand island dressing, and […]

Chicken Verde Enchiladas

Chicken Verde Enchiladas are a super easy recipe that is deliciously creamy, satisfying, and kid-friendly. This is my go-to recipe to whip up when a friend has a baby or I’m asked to bring a main dish for a potluck. It transports easily and freezes and reheats so well. It’s also a great recipe for […]

Honey-Glazed Ham

I love a honey-glazed ham over the holidays so when I see hams go on special at my supermarket I’ll scoop one up and do a mini-holiday in between Easter and Thanksgiving. Why wait? I don’t go too crazy–honey-glazed ham, mashed potatoes, and a veggie and  scrumptious Sunday dinner is served. While a pre-glazed and […]

Chicken Tostadas

I love TexMex and try to make it a TexMex night at least once a week. Chicken Tostadas are super tasty and a quick and easy dinner option. Paired with a guacamole salad or fiesta rice, a flavor-packed TexMex dinner can be on your table in 30 minutes or less! I always make extra of […]
