Did you know it only takes 6 Ingredients to make Alfredo Sauce from Scratch?

I don’t want to say Alfredo sauce is a staple in our household, but it is something our family enjoys plenty of. We of course use it as a pasta sauce instead of the traditional red sauce, but I actually make  two different pizzas from scratch that call for Alfredo sauce; my homemade chicken broccoli Alfredo and my specialty homemade…

Homemade Corn Dogs

If I’m ever in the mood to take a meal that I know everyone in the family will eat, corn dogs is positively at the top of the list! Sometimes, I do purchase a box from the store, but the prices are just so insane anymore for anything that we don’t get them very often. For this reason, I looked…

Homemade Uncrustables

Sometimes our kids prefer to take a cold lunch and that’s OKAY.  (Who can blame them with the latest “healthy lunch” plans that have gone into action?) What’s not okay is when you take your kids to the store to pick out things for their lunches and they decide they want Smucker’s Uncrustable sandwiches. I have nothing against the product,…

Do you like mushrooms? How to stock up and Freeze them.

Throughout the year, there is always going to be a stock up price for certain foods, particularly produce, that we need to take advantage of. This week at Hy-Vee, there’s a great sale on mushrooms, 8oz for just $.98! That price is definitely stock up price, but how can you stock up on mushrooms? They’re bound to go bad sooner…

Super Quick and Easy Pizza Pockets

I usually prefer to make meals from scratch, but as any person can relate, I have been busy and sometimes quick is just a whole lot simpler!! Tonight I made pizza pockets, semi-homemade as Sandra Lee would call it haha! It was really simple though and from start to serving I was done in 30 minutes. Depending on the size…

Maybe the Best Ever Crockpot Beef Stew

Making supper isn’t always fun but the crock pot is like the super hero of all cooking dishes. It is in our house at least! Running a blog and running after an 18 month old, plus all of my other active duties in my day, I don’t always have time to hang out in the kitchen for 3 hours to…

Homemade Chicken Dumpling Soup…a twist on the classic chicken noodle soup

Part of my heritage is German and this was always a favorite from my childhood. (I’m Dutch too OC people, it’s okay, breathe, breathe!)  I found a recipe that (of course isn’t as good as grandma or great-grandma’s recipe) but really seems to hit the spot. I actually found the recipe from Taste of Home. They have the best recipes…

Taco Seasoning made from scratch

I’ve gone through my fair share of taco seasoning packets; Ortega, McCormick, Taco Bell, store brand. You name it, we’ve used it in our house. There’s one major thing that drove me nuts about these pre-made seasoning packets though. It gave me the worst heartburn EVER. It was so greasy and didn’t even have that “authentic” taco taste. (I’ve been…

Orzo: The Simple yet Tasty Side Dish

Anytime we have certain meats for supper, such as Dutch pigs in the blanket tonight, I usually go for the same old side dish. Mashed potatoes. There’s nothing wrong with masked potatoes, they’re delicious. They’re tasty. Maybe not #1 on the list of healthy foods but they’re good enough for me. 😉 Anyway, sometimes I want potatoes and then I…
