Homemade Lemonade

Put the Countrytime back on the shelf.  Don’t even look at the jug on the juice aisle.  Lemonade is one of the best parts of the summertime, in my opinion, and NOTHING beats homemade!  And I promise, as is most of the recipes for everything I make, it’s SOOO easy!  And might take 5 minutes longer than scooping out that powdery mix, but again, I promise, it is 100 times better. Homemade Lemonade One bag of lemons (8-9 average-sized lemons), plus one more[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday: Pinterest Recipe Reviews

Happy Monday friends!  First of all, I apologize for my unintentional absence last week!  We are in the end-of-the-school-year homestretch, and I am OVERWHELMED with end of year celebrations, teacher appreciation, etc., etc., etc…times three!!  SO, I was bogged down with about three thousand things, but everytime I sat down to write for the blog…NOTHING.  But, I am BACK! Secondly, I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday!  We had a lovely day (the weather was GORGEOUS), and I had[Read more]

Key Lime Pie Pops

Once the weather starts to get warmer, one of our favorite things to do is eat popsicles out on the front porch after dinner.  Now, don’t get me wrong, a good ole Bomb Pop or classic cherry-grape-orange twin pops definitely do the trick, and we get those at the store sometimes too, but why even pay the $3 when you can so easily make your own popsicles with stuff you already have in your fridge and pantry?! When I saw this recipe[Read more]

Hi Friends!  Back to reality after Spring Break, womp-waaaaahhhh.  But that’s okay, we had a GREAT spring break (will share a post soon!), and I think the kids are actually excited to get back to school and gt back to soccer!  But still, I am anxious for summer to be here!!

Meal Plan Monday

Hi friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  It rained here (nothing new, sadly), but we stayed cozy inside, watched football, ate yummy, comforting soup, and watched football!  I am getting back to regular meal planning and thought I’d share my meal plan for the week, getting back to my Meal Plan Monday posts!  Here’s what we’re eating this week: Chicken Yakisoba We love Chinese Food in our family, but sometimes ordering good delivery can end up being reeeeeeeally pricey for our family[Read more]

Apple Tart

If you read yesterday’s post, you’ll know that we went apple picking over the weekend, and amassed quite a bounty of the delicious fruit.  So when we got home, I started looking up recipes and figuring out how I would use all these apples before they went to waste. The first recipe I knew I wanted to try was this Simple Apple Tart from the Pioneer Woman.  I try her recipes over and over, and have yet to be disappointed.[Read more]

What’s for Dinner: Bacon and Mushroom Chicken Pot Pie

Sometimes you just need a warm, stick to your ribs kind of dinner.  Especially now that the summer seems to have finally released her grasp, and we are getting some cooler days, which simply require comfort food.  As I was scrolling through my Facebook feed last Thursday, a friend of mine posted this Martha Stewart recipe for a Bacon and Mushroom Chicken Pot Pie, and I knew that’s what I wanted for dinner for Friday.  Usually our Friday nights are full of leftovers or frozen[Read more]

Pinterest Recipe Reviews

If you follow along with my Meal Plan Monday posts, you’ll know that I get a lot of our weeknight dinner recipes from Pinterest.  There are soooooo many great recipe ideas, and no matter our tastes, plans, or budget for the week, I can always find plenty of options. But, just like other recipe resources, there are going to be hits, and there are going to be misses.  I wanted to share some of the recipes that I have tried lately, and[Read more]
