Carsten and Kellan have fun in the kitchen making their very own slime.
Summer has arrived, and that means kids need things to do. My boys are thoroughly enjoying summertime, and so am I. I don't miss the hurried schedule of the school year and my hectic commute. Instead we are able to relax and make our own schedule each day.
Every Sunday I meal-plan for the week. I grocery-shop on Sunday
afternoon and try to get everything my family will need for the next
seven days. As a busy mom I try my hardest to find main dishes to make
that are uncomplicated and can be heated up on busy weeknights.
Show your loved ones how much you care by surprising them a sweet treat
from the heart. Or spend some quality time in the kitchen with your
littlest Valentine whipping up some something special together.
On Sunday, the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons will go head
to head in the Super Bowl. The Patriots are no stranger to the Super

When comfort food calls out to you serve up a one-dish meal that is warm
and filling. You can’t go wrong with old-fashioned chicken and
dumplings made easy.
Preparing a pan of lasagna may seem like a modern thing to do,
but it’s actually an ancient dish. Lasagna originated in Naples, Italy
in The Middle Ages. Through the years the original ingredients of layers
of pasta, sauce and cheese have remained the same, but there are
countless other takes on it as well.
If you’re short on time and money for the holidays, look no
further than your kitchen cupboards. Crackers are a versatile and simple
way to make the holidays special. They can be made into sweet or savory
treats all of which your family and friends will appreciate.
‘Tis the season for holiday eating - whether you look forward to the
sweets, the party appetizers or the traditional Christmas dinner. I love
Christmas goodies especially the cookies, but I also love all of the
party food. The holidays are a time to indulge so go ahead, make an
extra appetizer or two to bring to the holiday party.
December is the best month to indulge in decadent dessert. It seems
everywhere you look there is something yummy to tempt your sweet tooth.
If your pants are feeling a little bit tight make a soup for lunch or
dinner you can feel good about eating. There’s still a couple of weeks
before the trays of holiday goodies appear so do what you can to keep
the holiday weight from appearing on your scale.
One potato, two potatoes, three potatoes, more — there’s more than
enough room for mashed and sweet potatoes on your Thanksgiving.
As I did my weekend grocery shopping I noticed frozen turkeys in grocery
carts heading to homes for Thanksgiving. Maybe your family’s holiday
favorites include cheesy potatoes, green-bean casserole, pretzel salad
or homemade rolls. Our family likes to keep our Thanksgiving feast
fairly traditional with mashed potatoes and gravy and dressing with the
addition of our favorite side dish, corn pudding.
Fast forward 17 days to the scene at your house on Thanksgiving Day.
Your table is overflowing with turkey, mashed potatoes, dressing,
cranberries and pumpkin pie. But wait, what about keeping all of your
guests satisfied before the Thanksgiving feast is ready? The answer is a
variety of snacks and appetizers so they can keep their mind on the
football game and off of dinner.
There’s nothing cozier than dinner at home. Chicken casseroles are homey and simple, but always delicious.
There’s only one week left to scare up some good treats for your little
ghosts and goblins. Surprise them with sweet, salty and spooky snacks
that are almost too cute to eat.
