A WHOLE Week of Busy Weeknight REAL Food Meals

One question I get most here is how to get real food on the table in a hurry – especially on busy weeknights when most families are short on time.   A misconception that a lot of folks have about real food is that it has to take a long time to prepare.  While there are […]

Grilled Chicken with Cranberry and Watermelon Chutney

Looking for something different to do with the same ol’ chicken for dinner? This is a simple preparation that will wow every member of your family.  Since the weather is still perfect for grilling right now, I grilled the chicken. However, you could easily bake, pan fry, or throw this chicken in a countertop grill […]

Real Food Remake: Cheesy Tuna Casserole

Everybody has had at least one tuna casserole in their lifetime. Most recipes call for some type of canned “cream of something soup” or a box of macaroni and cheese. I’ve got a recipe made with wholesome, real-food ingredients. No processed ingredients here. One reason the tuna casserole has been on meal plans for so […]

Salmon Burgers and Sliders

Salmon is loaded with omega 3’s – a healthy fat most of us don’t get enough of.  My family has been making an effort to eat healthy fats and more fish in general.  But, I’ll just tell you – salmon was not my favorite.  Being a gal who has grown up on white fish and […]

I’ve got awinning combo for you to make your guests (or your family) for this or any fun Mexican Themed dinner night.  These oven baked tacos are SOOO good, my family would eat them once a week…EVERY week!  We all LOVE them.  Once you try these oven baked tacos […]

Rock Your Socks Off Homemade Ramen

Let me preface this recipe with this statement:  My son WILL NOT eat soup.  I could stand on my head, promise him the moon, bribe him with cold hard cash, a trip to the toy store… to no avail. He is like the character in the Dr. Seuss book who will not eat green eggs […]

Corn Meal Waffle Grilled Cheese with Turkey Ham

Who doesn’t love a good grilled cheese?  When I am trying to find new foods to mix up our routine it is all about presentation when it comes to my children – especially Judah.  He can be really finicky but if it looks fun he’s usually all in.  So, I used the concept of waffles […]

Chicken Taco Soup

I made this soup for dinner the other night and my husband practically begged me to make it again…soon…more than once.   I make a soup that is similar – Santa Fe Soup {aka Taco Soup} – that has ground beef in it.  This recipe uses  a rotisserie chicken, making it healthy AND super quick to […]
