I can’t believe I haven’t shared my mac and cheese recipe yet. Okay, so it’s not actually mine, but I’ve been using it for a few years now and I get compliments every. single. time. I’m sure there are lots of good variations of this classic dish out there, but I’m sticking with this one. It’s not complicated, but it is delicious. Continue reading
This one is definitely more labor intensive than most of the recipes we’ve been posting. I mostly wanted to try it out to see how these pizza pockets went over with my kiddos, in the hopes that I could make a batch or two on a quiet day and toss them in the freezer for quick meals on the go. Even though there’s some work involved, I think it’s worth it! They were a hit with the littles (and me too) and easier to wolf down. Continue reading
I’m an unashamed fan of any dinner than I can throw in the slow cooker sometime in the morning and then throw onto plates whenever my kids are hungry in the evening. This is one of those meals. And an even bigger plus – it makes a great freezer meal. Just put all of the ingredients in a ziplock bag and whip out whenever you need a quick, easy, no-prep option to feed your brood.
I actually kind of like making my own meatballs, but you could just as easily use a bag of frozen for this recipes. Whatever works for you, momma! Continue reading
Breakfast for dinner is always a winner, right? Waffles were pretty much my favorite breakfast when I was a kid, even though we didn’t have them often.
Though some might think it a lame gift, I was thrilled when my husband bought me a waffle maker for Christmas a couple years ago so I could finally start making this deliciousness for my own children.
There’s a lot of good recipes out there, but this one has become my go-to. With oats and just a touch of brown sugar, I like to think it’s a slightly healthier option than others out there. Though I suppose it doesn’t matter how much sliced fruit I throw on top, I’m still going to drench the whole thing in pure North Country maple syrup. How could you not? Continue reading
It’s a rainy and rather dreary fall day here today. Which means it’s the perfect day for soup! There’s some great hearty autumn soup recipes out there – and we’ll probably showcase them at some point – but there’s something about tomato soup. It’s a family favorite for sure. And I especially appreciate this recipe because I can throw everything in the slow cooker and smell it simmering alllll day long. Mmm. It’s super simple, but simply delicious. Continue reading
So I’ve decided this is basically a Mexican version of shepherd’s pie. And it’s delicious. I’m a huge fan of cornbread, so I was pretty confident this would be a hit – thankfully my husband enjoyed it just as much.
My husband shot a deer behind our house last fall. I did not grow up in a hunting culture, so this whole experience was new to me. I watched him hang the buck in our garage, picked up the meat after it was sorted and packaged, and thought, now what? I had never cooked venison before. Continue reading
I’ve made this for guests twice in the last couple of weeks, and it’s been a huge hit. Sometimes I find it hard to make chicken that has lots of flavor and moisture, but doesn’t take a crazy amount of work. This recipe definitely checks all the boxes.
Mmm, pork chops. Definitely one of my favorites. We bought half a pig this winter, so I’m pretty well stocked. You’d think I would try a lot of different recipes with a freezer full of pork, but I keep coming back to this one. Probably because I love maple even more than I love pork chops. Continue reading
Let’s switch things up a bit and try a recipe that’s more suited for breakfast. Or lunch, or dessert, or really whenever you feel like. These banana muffins are flourless, white sugarless, made in the blender – and delicious! Seriously, they’re a win all around.
I like to make them mini-sized, so they’re a perfect snack for my daughter, though my husband takes a couple to work in his lunch too. Continue reading
