Crockpot breakfast is a woman’s way to sanity! Getting up and moving in the morning can be tough for people. Heck! It’s hard for most people. We’re certainly not a family of joyful early risers. And pre-coffee trying to make a healthy breakfast seems way too difficult. But reaching for a stale pastry or stopping for something that pretends to be healthy from a fast food joint aren’t great options either. That’s why we love a good crockpot breakfast. [Read more…]

We’ve all been seeing the buzz on Pinterest and Facebook about Crockpot freezer meals and how you can make a bunch of them all at once to save time and money. The organization of it is what set me (Chris) up for the challenge. Bill is off to Ireland this month so I have extra time on my hands. Upfront, these are the points I learned from my easy crockpot freezer meals:
I LOVE corn chowder and every winter I crave it. I realize the winter is over, the snow is melting but I made this recipe a month ago and am just now getting around to sharing it with all of you. It’s so easy to make! I’ve heard chowders are tricky because of curdling the milk and you need to watch it closely but this easy crockpot corn chowder recipe changed my life! I’m looking forward to experimenting with other chowders over the summer like seafood chowder. Mmmm mmm! If you have any favorite recipes, we would love to hear about them!

The coronavirus has millions of people rushing to the stores and hoarding items like toilet paper. It’s a scary time and our big concern isn’t TP. These sisters are both wise shoppers and go to places like Sams Club to do our shopping for most items. When there is a sale, we stock up so paper products were the least of our concern. Our concern was fresh produce and keeping vegetables in our daily diet. Here are a few ways we’ve learned to stretch supplies during the coronavirus.
Emily and I were brought up in a traditional family of the “early years”. Dad was gone all day working and mom was home all day keeping the house in order. She always made amazing meals for our family of 6 and we ate like kings and queens! When I got older, I liked the idea of cooking but it wasn’t always that way. So I can relate to anyone reading this post that hates to cook but needs to anyway… Whether you’re not comfortable in the kitchen or simply don’t have a lot of time to spend on meal planning and preparation, having a few simple steps to follow can help make weekly meal planning and preparation easier.

Right from the get-go I will say that weather can be a drag! Check out this thermometer!It’s hard to motivate for anything outside with this temp! I’m lucky that I can plan my outdoor activity around the sun and wait until the temperature rises a bit. Last week Chris shared her ideas for when the weather is less than pleasant. What do you do if it’s uncomfortable to go outside and exercise? [Read more…]
Harvest time is here in my garden and with it thoughts come for how to preserve garden vegetables. I’ve kept up fairly well with my zucchini and tomatoes, but there’s a limit to how much one family can eat! There are easy ways to preserve garden vegetables for another time. And some of my ways are below!
Mom’s Tuna Casserole recipe is home to me. My mom is an amazing cook and out of ALL the mouth-watering recipes, this is the one I love the most and request for my birthday. Every time I go for a visit she makes this for us. She usually makes a double batch so she can send some home for me, freeze some for another time and have some leftovers for herself. Yup, I’m pretty spoiled.
I wish I lived closer to mom. I don’t get home as often as I’d like so sometimes I make a batch myself. Even though I follow the recipe to a tee, it’s never quite the same. The secret ingredient, without a doubt, is mom’s love.
