15 Weeknight One Skillet Meals

15 One Skillet Dinners

Get on the one skillet meals bandwagon! You'll cut back on dishes and save yourself time! My love of simple, delicious, family friendly one skillet meals knows no end; I love them as much as I love one-pot meals, which is really saying something. If you haven't gotten on the one skillet meal wagon yet, I'm sharing a few recipes today that will point you in the right direction. Here are a few reasons why using one skillet to cook the whole meal/dish is awesome: When you cook up the meat and then add some kind of liquid to make a Continue Reading →


Easy Vegetable and Cheese Egg Bake

It's no secret that I love a simple easy egg bake. I make some kind of egg bake or quiche about once a week or every other week and I just don't get tired of them. They are really easy meatless (or nearly meat-free) dinner options that the whole family loves. I love that I always have eggs on hand (thank you backyard chickens), that I can sneak vegetables in to dinner, and that it reheats really well. I'll often make a double batch and eat the second half for quick breakfasts the rest of the week. Few things are simpler Continue Reading →


8 Wholesome Lunch-Box Ideas for Adults or Kids

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by GOOD THiNS through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about GOOD THiNS, all opinions are my own. I’ve been working on prepping meals/ingredients/lunches/stuff for the freezer more and more lately and it has been such an awesome thing to have done and ready to use! I even had the chance to teach a meal planning/food prep class to over 30 women this past month and I loved it. I’m getting into a great groove and having more food conveniently ready in the fridge is a game changer. What is it Continue Reading →


Make Ahead Omelet in a Jar

You know how some things are just normal to you and you don't think much about them, but when someone sees you doing them they have questions because it's new to them? This "omelet" in a jar idea is just that... I have been chopping up vegetables and sticking them in a jar for years. It started with salad in a jar (here's a full tutorial on how that amazing-ness works!) but I started doing it with other things to. It's just normal. So when I told my friend about this breakfast trick, she loved it and made my promise Continue Reading →


Farmhouse Egg Bake

Sometimes I sit at my dinner, take a look at the meal, and try to determine what percentage of the meal I produced. It always varies but I get so excited when the percentage is really high. I'll look over the meal and then I'll announce to the family all of the things we grew. I love knowing where our food comes from and I want my kids to enjoy the literal fruits of our labors. Pork or lamb roast (animals we raised and processed), green beans and sweet corn (from the garden), and some canned peaches or applesauce (also from Continue Reading →


Easy Ham and Cheese Breakfast Pie

It's been so quiet around here lately! I thought we should end the work week with a delicious recipe and then I have some explaining to do come Monday. This recipe is one that I shared a year or so ago on another blog, but I thought it was high time it made an appearance here. Easy Ham and Cheese Breakfast Pie is kind of a cross between a quiche (very eggy) and a strata (very bready). My family loved it! You can't go wrong with eggs, ham, and cheese all piled into one dish. Plus it's super easy. We aren't a big breakfast Continue Reading →


Lightened Up Spinach Bacon Quiche

“This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Cooking Light and Real Simple, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #FreshandFab http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV” Country life is a happy one but it isn't without a few sacrifices. I've given up the convenience of restaurants, and I miss having neat places to take the kids once in a while like museums, aquariums, and parks. But do you know what I miss most of all? The library! Libraries are so amazing to me. We have giant buildings where all kinds of knowledge in the form of books Continue Reading →


Easy Egg and Potato Breakfast Casserole

When I meal plan, one night of the week is meatless/egg-based. This is a great habit to get into because it is healthy and budget friendly. I have nine spring chickens who started laying last month, and I collect around 7 eggs each day (find my very first egg story here!). Eggs for dinner is becoming more and more common for us and I couldn't be more pleased. I buy very little convenience food, but once in a while it is nice to have such foods on hand. This casserole uses Potatoes O'Brien which is cubed potatoes, onion, and green and red Continue Reading →


Breakfast Biscuit Sandwiches for a Crowd

This is more of a method than a recipe...eggs and sausage on a biscuit isn't much of a recipe if you ask me. The beauty behind this post is the secret in the preparation. The eggs and precooked sausage are baked in the oven in a muffin tin! This is a great way to make lots of eggs that are the perfect size to turn into a biscuit sandwich! Not only does it make multiple sandwich middles at once, but the sausage doesn't fall off the sandwich; it is baked into the egg! You don't even have to press out Continue Reading →
