Halloween Tutu Wreath

Seriously, we love the dramatic eye appealing look of our tutu wreaths. Kids love the help make them and as a bonus it only takes as long to throw together as their attention span, winning.

Valentine's Day Tutu Wreath

We love us some tutu wreaths... mostly because they are dramatic in display, kid friendly to make, and being supper easy helps too.

Joey was more excited than usual to make one for Valentine's day, mostly because it involved pink, hearts, and devil's sparkle glitter.

Bacon Ranch Dip

Tis the season for snacks and apps! 

If I've said it once, I've said it a million times, I could happily spend my time snacking on dips all day.... Which is pretty much exactly how I spend my days, this time of year. 

Although my sleeve has many dip recipes up it, sometimes I need something quick and ingredients on hand, which is exactly how this little diddy was whipped up!

Bacon Ranch Dip

1-block of cream cheese

1/2-cup of sour cream

1-packed of dry Hidden Valley Ranch mix

4-crispy slices of bacon

Cook bacon til extra crispy. Drain on paper towel. 

Mix together cream cheese, sour cream, and ranch packet.

Chop up bacon when cooled.

Throw 3/4 the bacon into bowl and stir. 

Transfer cream mixture into serving dish, top with left aside bacon. 

Serve with cracker.

Addie's Addition: Tomato Basil Alfredo {One Pot Pasta Meal}

Allow me to introduce my friend Addie.

She's 12 and in 7th grade, but more importantly this girl knows her way around the kitchen. So it's only naturally that her and I are teaming up to share some of her culinary creations...

The best part, she cooks the delicious
I eat the delicious
and then her mom cleans up the dishes from the delicious.

Two outta three isn't bad for what I consider to be a win in my books.

And now that school has started back full swing Addie's first Goodnyou? Recipe is perfect for a quick, easy, one pot pasta dish. 

Perfect trifecta of sorts, if you ask me.
And wicked good too.

Greek Dip

I have a million dip recipes, I love making dip, mostly I love eating dips, but despite having so many to choose from, most of them are heavy with cheese, warm and guilt full.

This particular one was thrown together on a hot, humid day, when I needed something cool and refreshing to offer our guest.

Since then, it has gone from being served as a dip with Pita chips at a party, to eaten in a sun-dried tomato wrap with chicken for lunch, to being brought as a side salad at BBQ's.

Either way, I'm eating it in abundance.

Apple Chicken Sausage Veggie Bake

I was having one of those days where I found myself standing in front of the refrigerator wondering what I was going to cook for supper, at an hour I should have already had supper cooked.

We needed groceries and the produce I did have, needed to be used in a hurry.

This recipe started as a chuck all, but has ended up being a sought after go to.

The simplicity of this recipes is ridiculous, the deliciousness of this recipe is extreme, and to bring it all the goodness to a full trifecta…… it's fool proof!

and healthy…

wait, what would that make it then? a quart-fecta?
