Dinner Recipe: Kid Friendly Nachos

Dinner Recipe: Kid Friendly Nachos - the perfect meal for those nights when you have little time and need something the kids will actually eat.

Some nights you just need something fast that the kids are sure to eat…Kid Friendly Nachos are the perfect recipe for those nights. I have three kids with about 3 billion different taste buds between them. Rarely do all three tolerate the same meal. There are some nights that I just give in and serve…

Easter Puppy Chow Recipe

Easter Puppy Chow Recipe - This is THE perfect snack for Easter! My kids are totally addicted to it and beg for more. If you live in the north...I think you might call this Muddy Buddies....whatever you call it...it's good! It's also gluten free!

Ever wonder why the Chex cereal box calls it Muddy Buddies? I put the question to my Facebook page and they seemed to think it had to do with where you live: north vs south…maybe it’s like Coke vs Pepsi? Puppy Chow vs Muddy Buddies? LOL

Gluten Free Recipe: Green Beans and Rice

Gluten Free Green Beans and Rice - This is a perfect side dish for a gluten free meal...or throw some shrimp or sausage in for a one pot meal done in less than 30 minutes.

Finding something that the entire family will eat, that is also mildly healthy, is the ultimate chore around here. Last night the stars aligned and I managed to make something that hardly anyone complained about (the 5 yr old picked out the almonds…even though he likes almonds…I think he just needed something to complain about)….

Garlic & Herbs Creamed Spinach Recipe - so good you'll never eat spinach any other way

For the past 3 weeks I’ve been really working to change my diet. About 9 months ago I was diagnosed as insulin resistant and in menopause (at 41). Individually each of those diagnoses can make losing weight difficult, but together it’s been darn near impossible. I started on some meds, but I’m determined to get…
