I’m excited to say that we have survived two weeks of school. Ethan loves Kindergarten, he hasn’t been late (yet) and I haven’t forgotten to pick him up! That is all an accomplishment in it’s own. But there is one thing I am still having a hard time with… weeknight dinners.

Around here, the weekends mean grilling, good friends, and outdoor parties. My husband will find any excuse to fire up the grill and load it with tasty veggies and meats. We have now taken outdoor cooking to a new level this weekend with a new electric smokehouse.

A Collection of 12+ Savory Pork Sunday Dinner Recipes

April 1, 2014 No Comments

I am sharing my collection of pork Sunday dinners as a sponsored post with Foodie.com. All opinions are my own.

Sundays are often the only ‘family day’ we get each week. My husband works long hours and frequently has to go into the office on Saturdays. However, he does whatever he can to make sure he has Sunday off. He wants to make sure our family has the day to spend together. With that said, the last thing I want to do on Sunday is spend hours in the kitchen making dinner.

Instead of making a labor-intense meal, I like to make recipes that are quick and easy. It could be a casserole, slow cooker meal, or a one-skillet dish. The goal is to have a tasty family meal with little effort. With all the varieties of dinners, pork often is a Sunday favorite. Between pork loins, roasts, chops, bacon, and ham, there are endless delicious meals to cook up. I have put together a collection on Foodie.com with 12+ savory pork Sunday dinner recipes that I will continue to grow.

The collection includes a Ham And Cheese GnocchiChinese Five-Spice Pork One PotCrock Pot Apple Bacon Pork Roast, and many more. Click the collection above to view them on Foodie and while you are there, look around to find more great recipes and collections.

I am sharing this peanut butter bacon cheeseburger recipe as part of a #SayCheeseburger sponsored campaign for #CollectiveBias. All opinions expressed are my own.

Yay! The first day of spring has finally arrived! Now if the temperatures would stop seesawing and stay warm, I would be overjoyed. Maybe if I consistently think about all the things I love about spring, it will finally start warming up. When I think about spring foods, I think about hamburgers and grilling.

In a perfect world, I would have time to cook a homemade dinner every evening for my family. I try my best by creating a meal plan each week to stay on track. But even then, some days fly by, leaving me with no time to make what was planned. That’s why I keep my pantry stocked for quick meals.

Making dinner every day is important to me. It gives us, as a family, a reason to sit down and spend time together over a great meal. When days are busy and I start running out of time to prepare a meal, it is great to have some quick meal options.

Chicken Bruschetta Pasta – An Easy Meal for Busy Days

September 24, 2013 7 Comments

Almost once a week, I found myself trying to get a handful of things done in the afternoon and before I know it, it’s 5 o’clock. I forgot to get dinner prepped. Then I am stressing out trying to decide what I have in the pantry to make a quick and easy meal for the family before my husband gets home from work.
