Chocolate Chip and Cranberry Granola Bars #FoodBloggerLove




Our tradition of having a family-friendly Valentine's day celebration will continue this year (nope, no date nights insight, y'all. Sigh.) ...with these homemade chocolate chip and cranberry granola bars!

Old- Fashioned Potato Soup



Long before the popular 'loaded baked potato soup' became a staple in restaurant chains, there was just old-fashioned potato soup. I grew up eating this simple soup for supper very often as it's always been one of my mother's favorite quick meals.

Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing



The list of condiments that my whole family agrees on is a short one. My son loves ketchup, but my daughter won't touch it. I love tangy salad dressing, like Miracle Whip, on my sandwiches, but Evan prefers mayo. I like old-school, yellow mustard or spicy, brown mustard with hamburgers, but Evan likes sweet, honey mustard. My kids won't even eat mustard... well, not on purpose, anyway.  I had to get a bit sneaky back when I started making these tasty honey mustard chicken tenders, and thankfully, no one was the wiser because they're really good!

When it comes to salad dressings, I like balsamic vinaigrette or creamy blue cheese, but Evan will almost always choose a honey mustard-style dressing, if there is one on the menu.

Favorite Recipes For Leftover Ham



Hey there, everyone! Just checking in for a moment to wish you all a belated Merry Christmas! Sorry it's a belated wish, but we were all so sick last week. Evan and I both were down and out with horrible sinus infections (thank you seasonal-cedar-pollen-nightmare!), my son had strep throat and my daughter was running an allergy-related, low-grade fever for two days. Yep, as a bunch we were just a hot mess for a few days!

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Mugcake




I seriously can't say enough about this gluten-free chocolate chip mugcake, y'all. I've also seriously eaten one of these per day for the last week! That's 100% a true story and in my opinion, it's honestly that good.

Easy Braised Mushrooms and Peas




Well y'all, I know we're a few days into the month already, but it's still incredibly hard for me to believe that December 2018 has arrived. I know it sounds so cliché, but I truly think 2018 may be the fastest moving year of my life so far. Lately, I've been crazy busy with family visits as well as planning and hosting my daughter's recent 6th birthday party and I'm finally recuperating (as is the state of my house) after all of that continuous entertaining. Now Christmas is coming and I'm feeling the pressure of the rapidly dwindling calendar days each morning when I wake up. However, whether I feel ready or not, now it's on to the next string of holiday festivities, family gatherings, and food.
