Pot Roast

One of my besties has been in town this week, hence the blog silence:) It’s been fabulous! We have been busy with crafting and taking the babes to the museum and farm and getting shakes and eating some more. She’s quite handy with the DSLR and I’m excited to try out my new tips. I […]

Make it Mine potpie

Monday’s are one of my favorite days because I get to go to gymnastics with my daughter. It is so fun to see her develop and figure things out. Even though she’s only two, I’ve been very impressed with our city’s rec center gymnastics program. (I’ve never been a gymnast so I can’t compare…) It […]

Steak Kebabs

These delightful kebabs are the perfect fall meal because they include three necessary elements: HEAT, HEARTINESS, and EASE. I love adding surprising elements to classic dishes, like potatoes to a kebab. That makes them hearty and so much more like fall. I can’t say the word kebab with a straight face–it reminds me of Jemain […]

Stuffed Green Peppers

This is best summer recipe because it literally costs $1 for the rice and $0.48 a green pepper since they are on sale. We usually eat about a pepper each so that’s $2 whoppers!Stuffed Green PeppersYield 4 large stuffed green peppers or 8 halves 1 pkg Spanish Rice (or make your own!)4 large green bell […]

Tater-Tot Casserole

I’m not a big fan of casseroles…but this is one exception. Partly because it’s so easy, partly because my 2 year old loves it and it has everything she normally doesn’t like, and partly because I’m a closet tater-tot obsessor. Okay, maybe just anything that is grated potato and fried like hashbrowns. I mean I […]

Meatloaf–Oh Yes

Last night we had guests over to watch the BYU football game. We all are alumni (save my sis who is in her last semester) and it was riveting. I hate when we lose. We got Eliza dressed up in her little cheerleading outfit and enjoyed a delicious meal and treats. Isn’t football season the […]

The Easiest Navajo Tacos

Whilst perusing BlogHer, I came across a scrumptious recipe for Navajo Tacos. Not the best when you are hungry and it’s about 5:00pm and you haven’t started cooking yet.(This is the whole reason I started this blog, right? To save us from this conundrum! It was Saturday…) Because of my self-imposed circumstances, I had to […]

French Bread Strogonoff

Don’t run away because it has the word “strogonoff”. I promise this will meet approval. Hubby of mine HATES strogonoffs of all sorts, but this has his SOA (stamp of approval).  I only call it strogonoff because I can’t think of a better name. Someone make this and give me a better name. We used […]


Whenever I see “Best Ever Recipe” on Pinterest, I immediately think NOT POSSIBLE. Probably because that really is an opinion. I didn’t think it really was possible to have Red Robin approved burgers at home without a lot of work and access to special ingredients, Red Robin burgers for me rank as “best ever”, but […]
