Cranberry Clementine Christmas Spritz


Tis the season to be jolly! I just love a good holiday cocktail. Combining all the flavors of the season is one of my favorite things to do. I also have a love of wine and more of a love for bubbles as in Lunetta Prosecco. Some of my favorite seasonal flavor combinations are cranberry and clementine.

Well I went to my  local Stop and Shop to grab all of my go to ingredients including delicious Johnsonville Mild sausage, yummy Barilla marinara sauce, peppers, onions and shredded Galbani mozzarella cheese. This is such and easy and delicious weeknight meal.

Nutter Butter Icebox Cake




If you have been following along this food blogging journey of mine then you have noticed I really never have dessert recipes.  Truth be told I rarely eat it.  But I surely did eat this. A friend of mine turned me onto this delectable dish.

Herbed Scrambled Egg Toasts with Jimmy Dean Breakfast {A Good Breakfast}


This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Tyson Foods, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #JDgreatdays  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV


Breakfast the most important meal of the day right? I am one busy mom. Between working full time, blogging and having one teen and a tween, getting them fed is super important. Getting kids off and ready for the morning and ensuring they have full bellies is sometimes a struggle. Anything to make my morning easier to lead to a great day is a huge helper! If you are a busy parent like me you fell my pain right?

Fun and Delicious Cinco De Mayo Recipes


May already!! Holy cow that was fast! May for me means my not so little oldest child will be one more year older. 17 to be exact. When the heck did that happen? May also means my adorable little miracle of a nephew will be 2. Not to mention (if you life in the northeast) all the festivities, cookouts, campfires and amazing food like all of these delicious treats! Happy 1st day of May!

Cajun Spiced Pretzel Crusted Chicken Tenders

Happy Monday! We eat a lot of chicken in our house. So I am always looking for new ways to make it. Since the kids love chicken tenders and fingers I decided to play a little trick on them.

Roasted Ranch Potato Wedges


This is a pretty basic recipe. I mean it's just roasted potatoes right? Wrong! Have you ever roasted them up and well they just weren't crispy enough? Well There is a little secret in the directions that makes these spuds perfectly crispy almost like fries. Not to mention they are coated in ranch which is my favorite.

Slow Roasted Turkey Banh Mi Sandwich



We are sandwich lovers in this house. I have never met one I wouldn't devour. I just love always trying new ideas and recipes to make one. Since I am always on the go and having to pack lunch for myself and everyone else sometimes making a healthy lunch isn't always an option until now! With no artificial ingredients and real quality taste, you can rely on Oscar Mayer Selects Natural to be one thing that’s not too good to be true.

Soothing My Soul with Lipton Tea



Did you ever just have a bad day, week, or even month? I know I sure have. Sometimes you need to just relax, decompress and soothe you soul. The one thing that helps me do that is Lipton Teas. I have always drank tea to soothe my soul. I always like to keep my options open as far as flavors go. With all the new flavors it was the Green, Chai and Lemon Ginger that I chose to give a try. Well the did not disappoint as expected.

One Pan Balsamic Chicken and Veggies


Ah one pot meals. My all time favorite time saving thing. I just love the fact that you cook it in one pan or pot, it is all seasoned the same and you only have one pot or pan to wash! That's a win win for me.

Cheesy Broccoli Brown Rice


 Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I am so happy to have things back to normal. Whatever that may be (ha ha).  This side dish is a perfect addition to any main dish. What is it about broccoli and cheese that makes them go so well together?
