White Rice 2 cans Beef Consommé 1 can Hot Water 1 Tbsp. Butter 1 Tbsp. Minced Onion Black pepper to taste Add all … [Read more...]


The other day on instagram, I shared this picture of my dinner. It was delicious. I made zucchini noodles and smothered them with marinara sauce.  No I do NOT make my own marinara. If you do, you are a superstar. I buy mine at good ‘ol Costco and add a little lean ground beef. I was just proud the kids weren’t eating cold cereal for dinner {AGAIN} to be honest.   Ever since I shared the photo, I’ve had a bunch of … [Read more...]

You guys, I can make bread. It's a freakin' miracle.I have had the urge to be more domestic lately. You may have noticed more recipes around here than usual, and I've been soooo proud of myself to be completely honest.It's a foreign feeling to actually WANT to make dinner for my family.
