busy mom’s crockpot chicken tacos

This was a HUGE hit in our house tonight! It’s was fast and easy (minus the shredding part, but I enlisted the hubby’s help for that and it went faster). The boys gobbled it up, hubby loved it and everyone asked for more! I used store bought ingredients to make it even easier!   CROCKPOT […]

gluten/dairy free tortillas

One of the foods I have missed the most since going gluten free is soft flour tortillas. I have yet to find a brand of gf ones that taste good! Most are too doughy or flimsy and just aren’t that great! So I decided to tackle making them myself. Let’s just say… it’s harder than […]

gf/df banana walnut chocolate chip muffins

Tonight was as close to a miracle as I can get… my kids were helpful, kind and didn’t complain or argue once during dinner! To honor this momentous occasion, I rewarded them with a delicious treat. Ok, let’s be honest… mama wanted something sweet and this recipe fit the bill without needing a ton of […]

korean beef bowl

  This is one of our favorite quick meals! From start to finish it takes around 20 min (including prep) so it’s definitely a winner for busy days! Everyone loves it (it’s a miracle, y’all) and I get the cutest little sous chef to help me make it! Adjust amounts for your own tastes. We […]

gluten + dairy free waffle heaven

I’m thankful to be married to the Breakfast King. Seriously. My husband is in charge of mornings and makes THE BEST breakfasts out there! He’s been so awesome with our family change to gluten/dairy free. He is actually the one that found the flour we use after trying many, many types! The kids were worried […]

turkey cupcakes with cauliflower frosting

I came home from a looooooooong day of work and found two packages of ground turkey defrosting on the counter. I asked my husband what he planned for dinner, and his response was “ummmmmmm”. So I quickly jumped on Pinterest and did my thing. You know, the thing where I look at 700,000 recipes (ok […]

lemon skillet chicken + roasted veggies

This is a staple meal in our house. I’ve been making this lemon skillet chicken for almost a year now. It usually has a heavy cream based sauce, but I’ve left out the heavy cream until I can find an alternative the kids like! It’s easy to make and I always have the ingredients handy. […]

lemon garlic meatballs (gluten free)

I spend way too much time on Pinterest, recipe searching and frankly, just in general. It’s such a time suck. I think I’m getting on to find one thing and wind up spending an hour looking at nail polish colors. In our house, we’ve (and by we I mean my husband and me) are kind […]

world’s best gf/(mostly)df brownies

My oldest turns 9 on Tuesday. But today, we had a little gathering for him. The kids have been trying REALLY hard to get used to their new normal. Believe it or not, the 6 year old is better at it than the almost 9 year old! But I guess he has had more time […]

sushi saves the day

Some days you just can’t cook. Like really, today I can NOT cook because I can barely move. Apparently I forgot I’m no longer 25 and in great shape, so spending the day moving bags of mulch, digging, hammering in rail road ties and working out in the hot sun done DONE ME IN. So […]
