We still have quite a bit of time left in grilling season, but it is usually about half-way through the summer when I panic and realize that we haven’t been grilling as much as we could have been. I think there must be a little bit of magic in cast iron because everything off the grill always tastes better to me and these rosemary chicken kebabs were heavenly!
This dish is made without cream, so it’s a lighter recipe that’s perfect for the heat. Summer pasta may not be your first thought, but it’s worth a shot! This orecchiette with broccoli and sausage is delish, and the kids love the fun shaped pasta they picked out!
This summer my kids and I will be world travelers! With the help of the internet, the local library, and the smattering of cultural restaurants in our area, we are going to learn about a new country each week. I am so excited to expose my kids to the colors, sights, sounds and tastes of other nations.
As the weather warms up, we are ever on the lookout for meals that can be on the table quickly and don’t require the oven. This Creamy Coconut Chicken Curry definitely fits the bill! It’s one of those meals that is so fast and simple to make, but feels fancy enough to serve to company.
These fish tacos offer a dinner that can be easily adapted and deconstructed for picky eaters to enjoy, while those with a more sophisticated palate 😉 can enjoy something that isn’t pancakes or macaroni and cheese. For example, the kids ate chips and salsa, fish sticks, tomatoes, and plain tortillas while we enjoyed these tacos.
My girls recently have come to love hashbrowns because they are similar enough to french fries. It was those words that I said that convinced them to try them, “they taste like french fries”. And they haven’t turned back! My 3 year old said last week when we had these, “Mom, I just can’t stop eating these”! It was too cute!
A lighter version of a comfort food classic, this beef stroganoff is delicious on egg noodles or rice!
It’s hard not to love pasta–it’s cheap, quick to prepare, and usually loved gobbled up by our kiddos while keeping complaints to a minimum. We can’t help but share another amazing pasta dish with you. Our sister-in-law, Whitney, recently shared this lemon cream pasta recipe with us and it’s definitely a keeper!
We like to encourage our kids to be adventurous eaters and to try new things, but new things are not always well received, so breakfast is usually a safe and familiar favorite for nights when complaints about dinner are too much to handle. These deluxe waffles are a favorite “brinner” option in our families!
Salty and sweet, this miso glazed salmon is a simple but fancy-tasting meal the whole family can enjoy. Get the recipe on the blog today!
We are resolving this year to meal plan better. Things always seems a lot less chaotic when you have a game plan for dinner before 5:00. This roasted red pepper pasta and sausage alfredo is definitely going to be showing up in the monthly rotation.
This French Bread pizza will save you at dinnertime! It comes together in a flash with only a handful of ingredients–and if you’re like us, the ingredients are ones that you likely already have on hand.
