Apple Pie Oatmeal for Baby

Baby food is normally BORING. Sweet potato. Carrots. Peas. Rice Cereal. Sure they make some combos like summer vegetables or apples with blueberries, but there’s no pizzazz to them.

I say add a little spice! Little Bean has already had cumin dusted pork chops, greek spiced salmon, and Mexican chicken. I also add a bit of spice to his morning bowl of oatmeal. Here’s how I make “Apple Pie Oatmeal” for Baby….

One Pot Chicken and Potatoes From the Pantry

I just made a quick, tasty one pot meal the whole family ate without complaint! And when I say “whole” I mean WHOLE!

The Baby, The Little Guy, AND The Picky Eater Husband!

Here’s the story…I was in NO mood to spend a lot of time on dinner. Read the rest of this post »»

Sweet Cinnamon Cheese, Apple and Turkey Sandwich

Sunday I made this sandwich on a complete whim. I just bought a bunch of red delicious apples (they were on sale.) I had 2 slices of turkey breast left in the fridge and a few wedges of The Laughing Cow Cheese just waiting to be used.

As you guys may know, I’m a Laughing Cow Community Leader. It’s by far the best job I’ve ever had. I’m such a fan of their products and getting to be creative with them in the kitchen is SO MUCH FUN! Read the rest of this post »»

Warm White Bean and Kale Salad with Dried Cranberries and Cashews

I bought a bag of kale instead of a bag of spinach this week. My plan was to figure out ways to get this power house vegetable IN me and hopefully IN my family, although unless I hide it, they aren’t game.

According to NutritionData.com, Kale…

Snack-tastic Lunch

  • Whole Grain Pretzels
  • Snapea Crisps
  • Red Pepper Strips
  • “Aussie Apple” (Sheri gave me this idea in the comments. Cut an apple and then put it back together held by a rubber band so it doesn’t brown. Worked like a charm!
  • Skittles (The Halloween Candy should be coming to an end soon!)
  • Water

Red Pepper Soup with Roasted Spaghetti Squash

Red Peppers have been on sale at Trader Joes for 2 weeks now. I think they think I’m crazy when I check out with two huge bags full. Honestly, I bought 12 this week. I love them. Little Guy loves them, and I’m working on the baby (click here for our latest baby food adventure.)

We normally eat them straight up or add them to sausage dishes, but I’ve been craving a good homemade soup. Read the rest of this post »»

Pressed Pear Turkey Sandwich

This is the grilled updated version of a sandwich I made earlier this year. I know not everyone is a fruit and meat person, but I’m just REALLY into the pear/turkey combo as evident by my latest burger creation.

I’ve made a variation of this sandwich 3 times this week and settled on this combination… Read the rest of this post »»
