Sweet Potato Corned Beef Hash


For me breakfast for dinner means a super simple meal. I love sweet potato hash but it always seems so difficult to make. It’s not. It is all in my head. I still had 3 corned beef stashed in my freezer from St. Patrick’s Day so I pulled one out the other day and cooked…

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Balsamic Glaze


This was another of the dishes that I made for my mother while we were there. I have decided that I need to try and make at least one dish a week that will help her with ideas for eating on her Mediterranean diet. They may not be purely foods from her diet but at…

Sweet Potato and White Potato Gratin – Thank You ALL!


Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I hit my 500th follower yesterday! It took 2 1/2 years for me to get to 300 followers (I really don’t count my first year of blogging) and only 3-4 more months to get to 500. Thanks to HarsH ReaLiTy and Dream Big, Dream Often (click for links to these blogs)…

Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas over Mashed Sweet Potatoes


Even in summer I love my slow cooker.  I am still trying to use it at least 2-3 days a week to avoid having to think too much about dinner. I met several people at The Disney Social Media Moms Conference in Chicago last week who when I told them about my blog gave me…

Slow Cooker Moroccan Chicken


Ever have one of those days?  Well, this is it for me. After dance class last night I came home and we had dinner, helped the kids with their homework, took a ride down by the beach to watch the sunset.  It was a really great evening. This morning I get up and can’t find…

Slow Cooker Sweet and Savory Boneless Pork Chops Meal


Last night I needed a meal that would be ready after my son’s musical program at school.  I knew we would not have enough time for a real meal beforehand so I wanted it to be ready at 6:30 pm.  I just wanted to add a salad and be ready to sit at the table…

Creamy Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Steak


I am in love with sweet potatoes right now.  My kids are okay with them.  As long as I keep cooking them I think they will start to get used to the taste.  I remember when they were little the doctor telling us to have them try food up to ten different times before thinking…

Cheese Stuffed Hamburgers with Oven Baked Sweet Potato Chips


This is a tough one today.  I am just not feeling like sitting down and actually writing.  That is rare for me.  I love to get up and start writing about food and my family.  Today started with an appointment and then seemed to go downhill from there.  My routine is off which sets my…

Italian Sausage with Roasted Balsamic Vegetables


With Veteran’s Day and then a SNOW DAY (yes, a real snow day) now behind us I can finally get back to posting.  It is hard to write with my children around.  That is mostly my fault because I love having them home so I tend to want to spend all my time with them….
