Teach me to cook January : 30 minute dinner recipes.
    I’m so excited to be participating in this fantastic blog series brought to you by the fabulous Jill over at Create.Craft.Love. I had the pleasure of meeting Jill at the SNAP conference last spring, and in the middle of breakfast we discovered we are from the same hometown. Small world! When she told me about this project I knew I had to jump in! I can remember being a young wife, scouring Martha Stewart magazines and watching the food channel every chance I got. Cooking is a process that takes a lot of practice. I still have failures. The recipe I’m teaching today— it’s pretty fool proof. I knew instantly that I would share the recipe for my homemade spaghetti sauce. We typically make it as an Italian sausage marinara. It’s one of those go - to recipes everyone needs. It’s done in less than 30 minutes. It’s delicious. It’s a complete meal.The tomatoes in the recipe are giving you a nice healthy dose of veggies, it has protein and the pasta is versatile. Need it to be gluten free? Quinoa noodles go fantastic with it. Not a fan of sausage? Made without it- it’s a perfect quick vegetarian meal. I keep the tomatoes on hand in the pantry for desperate food nights. Even my kiddos like it. The best part? My 13 year old has been making this since he was 11 (with supervision of course!). If he can do it- you can do it. Be prepared to check homemade spaghetti sauce off your to conquer list! So let’s get started!

     It’s that time of the year again! Time for fun commercials, spirited team debates, time with friends and family, and time for snacks! Who doesn’t love the #BigGameSnacks? Probably those who are stuck fixing them! Ha! Seriously though, there are so many easy to make dips and snacks that you shouldn’t have to feel stressed out. Today I want to share with you my easy party ideas so that your next party won’t overwhelm you. Because you shouldn’t feel more beat up than the players on the field! I’ll share with you my table decor, easy to set up buffet, and even a seedless roasted red pepper hummus dip so your friends with seed allergies don’t feel left out! I was able to make my party around Cheez-it’s and Pringles which made things a million times easier. Especially since I picked most of the items up in one quick trip to Walmart. The kiddos got in on the fun by making a homemade megaphone out of a Pringles can. Our neighbor girl, Baby A absolutely loved the Cheez-it Crunch’d and I think they have a fan for life! This post is picture heavy, so I’ll warn you ahead of time, but it will be worth it to see all the fun that we had with our neighbors!

     Everywhere across the country, you can see stores and people getting ready for the Big Game! We love to celebrate it with our friends and family (as I’m sure you do too!). Our kids, mmmmm, not so much. They enjoy the food and the snacks, but tire of the game watching. This year I decided to get a bit creative and threw a teenage boy football video game championship party! All the fun snacks and goodies, but geared toward their ages. My boys would play video games all day long if we let them, so this was a big hit. I’m not sure what was the bigger hit— the DiGiorno Pizza, the Dreyer's Touchdown Sundae ice cream sandwiches, or the actual video games! I was partial to the ice cream sandwiches because the Touchdown Sundae ice cream is so good! This Limited Edition Dreyer’s / Edy’s ice cream takes vanilla ice cream, streaks it with a fudge ripple and then throws in football shaped chocolate covered caramel pieces. SCORE! The pizza filled the boys tummies - which I didn’t even know was possible! Come see exactly how we threw this fun party, and how to make those superb ice cream sandwiches!

Celebrating Winter Blog Hop! Free Printable!

     I wish I could tell you that my house has wonderful touches of winter decor right now, but that would be a fib. Well a half truth. My winter decor is out (of the boxes), not placed in the right spot, and I have about 10 Christmas tubs that need to go up in the attic. Somehow the month of January has just escaped. Where has it gone? Hopefully I can get the house put back together before the weekend is up.

     Despite my lack of decor, I was able to create a fun printable for my house and I wanted to share it with all of you!
