Lately, one of my most common requests is for posts/videos about our favorite quick and easy meals. I’m certainly no Rachael Ray but I do believe in cooking for your family (whether you dread it like I do or not…) and believe you can eat GOOD food, on a budget, without spending hours preparing it!
Don’t miss anything!
A few years ago I was in a bind, and needed last-minute Thanksgiving appetizer ideas in a big way. I put a call out to my Freebs on social media and was BLOWN AWAY! You all gave me the best ideas! To this day, they are some of my favorite recipes. I compiled them into
I am currently en-route to Arizona to spend Thanksgiving dinner with family. Since I have no service, I enlisted the help of my dear friend (and foodie GENIUS) Shandra, from Deals to Meals, to give us some tips on how to save SERIOUS dough this Thanksgiving! Just as you would try to find a good
It’s no secret that I love Swig (a cute soda and cookie shop in Utah and Arizona that I hope will dominate the world someday with their deliciousness). My weakness is their (diet) Raspberry Dream, my favorite drink of all time. Picture this: diet Doctor Pepper…coconut cream…raspberry puree…oh. my. heavens. Basically dessert in a cup. *wipes drool
Aaaah, that beloved grocery bill. Kicks you in the pants a bit, doesn’t it? Putting it lightly…how much you spend on groceries can make or break you. If you go to the store several times per week, wander the aisles, tossing whatever sounds good in your cart…I hate to break it to you, but you’re
Ok, who doesn’t love brownies?? Bubba’s favorite dessert in the world is brownies, so today I’m sharing the world’s best brownie recipe with you for two reasons. ONE: they are just downright delicious. TWO: They can save you money!! True story. Many of you have asked for my tips and tricks for entertaining. I did a
Last week on my Vlog I showed you the EASIEST Sunday meal I made…10 minute smothered and baked tilapia. It was seriously one of the easiest recipes I’ve made in a long time, and one of the tastiest…and healthiest! (Enter slow clap for Jordan actually making a healthy meal.) Several of you asked for the
I love 4th of July! It’s a fun holiday jam-packed with BBQ’s, friends, fireworks, and parties. I always ooooh and aaaaah over those gorgeous patriotic desserts I see on Pinterest, but I hate to bake and don’t want to take the time to make them. Lucky for us I discovered the cutest, easiest, and yummiest Patriotic Oreo
Are you a fan of no-recipe meals? I am. In fact, I almost always cook without a recipe. I find it easier to look in my fridge, pull out everything I need to use up, and make something out of it. I especially love anything I can dump in the slow cooker and walk away from. However…sometimes
Hi Freebs! I am busy at home caring for a newborn, keeping the other 4 fed, and you know, just adjusting to the crazy life that is a family of 7… yes, 7. I wanted to make sure you didn’t lack in posts while I’m out, so since today is Tuesday, I thought I’d bust out a
If you are subscribed to my newsletter (which, you should be if you aren’t! See gray box on the top of this page to make it happen!) then you might’ve read about the internal dilemma I had on Sunday over a simple ham dinner. Imagine, if you will, finally moving (what fills like) millions of boxes and
As you read in my first post, we had a family of 5 over for dinner on Sunday…on a whim…without having gone grocery shopping at all that week. Potentially a BAD idea, but it turned out amazing! It forced me to get creative and search my pantry, fridge, and freezer for ingredients I had on-hand,
