Spaghetti Squash Lasagna

Our crew is making steps to incorporate a few more veggies and a few less carbs into our diet. Summer is the perfect time of year to do so! Our most recent trial run was a loose adaptation of an amazing recipe from happy-mothering.com. [Read more…]

Parmesan Chicken

Today’s post is another “big-batch” recipe. This coating for chicken freezes well and can be stored for up to three months.

Our family is transitioning into having more cooks around the house (high school and college-age kiddos make marvelous chefs)! I keep a surplus of this coating on hand. They love it and it’s easy for them to prep an evening meal. [Read more…]

Carrot Casserole

I was totally surprised to find that this gem of a recipe hadn’t made it on the website yet! Carrot Casserole was “invented” by Doc’s Mom. It’s incredibly simple…and healthy!

We love it as a topping for baked potatoes but that wouldn’t be necessary.

I’ll quit chatting so you can whip this bad boy up and have it ready for supper when you walk in the door! [Read more…]
