Corn & Black Bean Salad with Smoky Honey-Lime Dressing




Fresh corn on the cob has always been one of my favorite things and it’s one ingredient I don’t make time for nearly enough. I use canned or frozen corn as quick substitutions in lots of our family favorite recipes. Truthfully, no one seems to mind the shortcut, and the dishes typically turn out just fine and tasty. But, there's just something so satisfying about using fresh produce instead the easy alternatives every time I get the chance.  

Monster Cookies and a Fun Staycation!



This summer has been a hectic one for my family. The big move and the seemingly never-ending packing and unpacking have been major consumers of our precious summer days.  It just doesn't seem like we been able to squeeze in as much fun as we normally do this go-around. 

Slowly, but surely, we are settling in and catching up. Thankfully, we've been able to get out and about some in these last few weeks. The kids got to do a terrific eight-morning session of swim lessons at a local university and they enjoyed that very much.

Easy Sausage and Pepper Hoagies #SundaySupper



I have a special love for hearty meals that are fresh and yet super quick to put together. In fact, I'm pretty sure we all love meals that meet this general description:  quick, healthy, satisfying, and tasty!

How to Make Glitter Slime




Well, this summer has had no shortage of ups and downs as I've got both kids home with me full-time.  I'm loving it, of course, but their five year age difference can make activity planning a challenge at times (perhaps that's the understatement of the season!).

Iced Lemon Cookies

 

Lately, I have been all about bright colors and flavors of citrus fruit. It's safe to expect that I'm buying a bagful of limes, lemons, grapefruit, or oranges every time I head to the store. I simply can't get enough of it all!

Banana-Oat Breakfast Smoothie

This quick and easy banana-oat smoothie has been my absolute favorite thing to make for breakfast lately. Not only is it really healthy, it's also really satisfying. I stay feeling full for at least a couple of hours after a drink this creamy treat and that's not normal for me when I've tried to get by on breakfast smoothies before.
