thai lettuce wraps

I am a huge fan of takeout – especially when a week day turns into a hot mess day – when I don’t want to cook! I almost always default to Asian takeout – Chinese, Japanese, or Thai food. You can still make healthy choices and everyone will eat it! […]

chelsea’s crunchwrap sublime

In college, when I could eat anything and everything I wanted, I LOVED Taco Bell! Mexican pizzas, tacos, 7 layer burritos, and the crunch wrap supreme. Now that I know there is Gluten present in the beef, I thought I could make it at home with a fresher taste!

pretzel crusted chicken nuggets

What kid doesn’t like chicken nuggets? R&R love them but I am not a huge fan of buying them frozen. These pretzel covered ones are fresh, delicious and super playful! Pair them with some mustard or ketchup (my fave is mustard and mayo together) and you are all set!

veggie hummus wrap

Meal prepping takes some time. I usually do it on Sunday afternoons when R&R are napping and hubby is around. My prep includes a lunch option for us during the week as well as any breakfast items I can go ahead and cook beforehand. It’s super helpful to be able […]

hollandaise sauce

My husband knows – there are two things I will ALWAYS order if found on a menu – scallops and eggs benedict. Eggs benedict is by far my most favorite breakfast dish. Runny eggs, salty meat, a delicious english muffin, and that hollandaise sauce. It’s creamy, silky, and smooth. It’s […]

whole chicken – oven vs. crockpot

A full chicken?! It is FAR easier than you realize to cook a whole bird and you get a ton of fantastic meat out of it. It can be cheaper than buying an already cooked rotisserie chicken from the store and you can experiment to make it taste how you […]

brussels sprouts and bacon

Sprouts. I used to think they were gross. Now, they are one of my favorite veggies EVER. You simply have to figure out how to cook them properly.

raleigh’s chicken

Raleigh eats this simple chicken breast every time it is served. Remy likes it too! When asked what he likes best that mommy cooks, he always says “Chicken!” I hope your kiddos like it too!

red curry

Thai food. I could eat it all day, every day. I love a bit of heat but not enough to make my mouth feel as though it’s on fire. Our favorite Raleigh Thai restaurant is a quarter mile from my house – which is very dangerous! Instead of spending all […]

roasted carrots

Easy veggies – we need to have a few recipes in our mom-arsenal! I have found the handful of veggies that my kids will eat and I make them A LOT! My kids like seasoning – probably my fault for eating the way I did while pregnant. These carrots will […]
