Bacon Garlic Butter Recipe

I hope everyone had an awesome 4th of July!  I don’t know about you but here in TN it rained pretty much ALL weekend.  Even with the rain, we still managed to shoot off some fireworks and grill in between the bouts of rain.  I am a very recent steak eater (never did like it until I gave it another try a few months ago) so this weekend was my first time having steak grilled at home.  I knew I wanted to make it special.

At the restaurant we went to where I first had a steak, they put this really yummy bacon garlic butter on their steak.  After trying it, I just knew I had to work on recreating this taste at home. You guys, not only is this super easy to make, it really adds some awesome flavor to steak. You could also spread it on some toast, use it in savory recipes, and more! I wish I would have tried it sooner.  Are you ready for how easy this is? Really it takes about 5 minutes, ha!  [Read More…]

Super Simple Coleslaw Recipe

Super Simple Coleslaw Recipe

It’s officially coleslaw season again!  As summer approaches, our dinner menus begin to change.  This is the time of year when my husband starts grilling and I simply have to prepare side dishes.  For me, it’s a bonus because I have a recipe box filled with summer sides, including fresh salads and vegetables.  After a long day at work, the last thing I want to do is put together a whole meal.

Our local farmer’s market just opened and, with all the fresh vegetables available, our family’s dinner side dishes no longer consist of frozen vegetables.  We’ll be enjoying zucchini, tomatoes, cabbage, radishes, green beans, bell peppers, peas, cucumbers, and asparagus fresh from the farm.

This family favorite simple coleslaw recipe is one which I adapted from my days of following The Flylady.  Instead of chopped cabbage and carrots, the recipes calls for these ingredients to be shredded.  My family is not fond of sweet coleslaw so this coleslaw, which is more on the tangy side, pleases everyone.

Here’s what you’ll need: [Read More…]

Super Easy Chicken Caeser Pasta Salad Recipe

Summer will be here before you know it! For work at home moms like me, that means I’ll have another little mouth to feed during lunch time, so my usual lunch of cheese and crackers, or the muffin I never finished at breakfast just isn’t going to cut it. So I needed to think of some recipes that are easy to make, quick to prepare (because just because my child is off during the summer doesn’t mean I am!), and something we would both enjoy. What is better than a cold pasta salad on a hot summer day? Not much I tell you! And this Super Easy Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad Recipe has quickly become a favorite in my house, so I wanted to share!  [Read More…]

At 2:30pm today it will be the official start of summer in our home! It’s my favorite time of year. As a WAHM I get the luxury of spending the summer hanging out with my daughter. This means days of playing at the park, staying up late to play Mario Kart together, and making lunches together. This also means that my usual lunch of peanut butter and crackers just isn’t going to cut it. So I’ve started meal planning and thinking of things that are quick, easy, and that we will both like.  [Read More…]

Money: $30 ones

I was looking for the perfect graduation gift. Then it hit me what does everyone need? They need money. I mean even with our posts on how to save for college and how to save on stuff for the dorm you wills till need money. We have even put together a gift card wreath if you want to go above and beyond but for most of us around $25 bucks is where we would like to be. I thought wouldn’t it be fun to give that amount in a cool way, to make graduation personalized gifts. I mean who would forget a necklace made of money? Who wouldn’t want to receive this gift.
