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 →


Homemade Pumpkin Noodles

Aren't these pumpkin noodles pretty?! You are going to love how much fun they are to make and eat! Few things are more comforting to me than homemade egg noodles. When you grow up eating something simple, filling, and delicious, I think you crave that food whenever you need a little piece of childhood in your life. Egg noodles are one such recipe for me (I also am very sentimental over my mom's dinner rolls, and my grandma's cobbler and her chocolate sheet cake). My grandma lives on a gorgeous old farm in Southern Indiana (I wrote about it once if 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 →

How to Test the Freshness of an Egg

Eggs are a really interesting topic to me right now and I thought I would share some egg tips and tricks with you including how to tell the freshness of an egg. Did you know that your average store-bought egg is 3 weeks old but they could very well be months old. Farmers can hold onto eggs for 30 to 90 days before they are shipped off for "packing" (the information that I found for that number varied a lot, so it's a wide range). Eggs are several more weeks old by they time they are packed, shipped, and then purchased by Continue Reading →


South of the Border Avocado Toast

Avocado toast is all the rage right now. Have you tried it? It's about as hard as it sounds... mashed avocado with salt on top of toast. It took me forever to try it, but once I did I totally saw the light. It is super delicious, creamy, and filling. Thomas and I love it for breakfast. The problem for us though is, it is pretty hard to get a good ripe avocado at the store. I'm not sure why, but it just doesn't happen. South of the Boarder Avocado Toast combines my love for all things Tex-Mex with my adoration 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 →
