I have been waiting to try this recipe for a little while now and never had the chance.  I have been craving muffins…uh maybe cupcakes…and figured it was time to give this recipe a try.  Boy am I glad that I did.

I had some extra raspberries in the fridge so I went for it.

Theses muffins turned out ridiculously good!  I think they actually turned out as good as cupcakes…true story.  They will definitely be made again in the near future.

Finally cooler weather is coming our way…I am so ready.  Break out the chili and soup recipes. 

My kids are planning on sleeping all night in a tent this weekend, which I know they will enjoy.  We don’t usually eat hot dogs, but I think we will this weekend if the weather is good for a fire.  Let me just say I buy organic all beef hotdogs.  They are for special occasions only.

 Here is our plan for this week.  As always, click on the link next to the day to go to the recipe for that meal.  Remember that I serve… Continue reading

Every time I make pork tenderloin I end up with left-overs.  Sometimes I get tired of eating left-overs meal for the next several meals, and I do not want good food to be thrown away. So why not change it up a bit?

I began to think…what can I do with this extra meat?  On this particular day chili sounded really good thus, I combined the two.

Well, let me just say, that this turned out pretty great.  In fact, I will not have to have “left-over” pork to do this again.  I really liked it and so did my husband and kids. … Continue reading

I am glad this week is coming to an end.  I need some time to rest and relax with my little ones. :) We do have one baseball game this weekend but other than that we have no commitments! 

I am trying out several new recipes, a few I have liked and will be coming to my blog soon.  So check back!!! I’ve made some muffins, pulled pork chili, and chicken tacos/nachos which all turned out great.  I love sharing my successful recipes with all my readers and friends.

So for this upcoming week here is my plan.  Remember that I… Continue reading

We love breakfast at our house!!!  From Oven Baked Pancakes to regular Pancakes, my kids love them all! They even eat Green Eggs and Ham.

The other day Aaron asked for waffles and I realized I didn’t have my recipe on this blog, and believe me you will want this recipe. :)  So if you are looking for a good, clean, whole-wheat waffle recipe…look no more.

These also refrigerate great for a quick breakfast the next day!

We have had such a hot week, I’m ready for some cooler weather!!! Since it has gotten warmer the boys have taken up fishing and swimming in the pond almost everyday.  This makes dinner time a little more challenging for me since I’m watching them instead of inside getting our meal ready.

I’ve been doing a lot of prep work!!! Either crock pot meals, or getting everything ready the day before, so dinner time goes a little smoother.  My kids do NOT want to come inside so I have to have a plan of attack for our meals!

This is when meal plans are… Continue reading

I have several tomato plants this year.  My plan was canning or freezing several things such as tomato sauce, pasta sauce, tomato basil pasta sauce, salsa, taco sauce, and Rotel.

We love salsa at my house and I did not want to use canned Rotel so we had to start making our own.  It is so easy!!! Aaron is pretty sure that with the homemade Rotel my salsa tastes better than it ever has. 

I do want you to know that if you plan on freezing it the peppers do get hotter, so keep that in mind.… Continue reading
