We typically buy large center cut pork loins when they are on sale. This saves us a lot of money and produces a lot of pulled pork for us to use. Sometimes we cook the pork and use it all up, or other times we freeze the leftovers to use it later. I am always coming up with different ways to use the pork so we don’t get tired of it, and this is quite possibly my favorite way.
When my daughter comes home from school the first thing she does is drop her backpack on the floor and head straight to the refrigerator. It’s almost as if she had not eaten in weeks the way she opens the refrigerator door and scans the area for a snack to satisfy her appetite.
New twist on an appetizer favorite!! If you love jalapeño poppers and grilled cheese, you will definitely love this sandwich. The crispy panko, roasted jalapeño’s sharp cheddar cheese will leave the distinctive taste of jalapeño poppers with an extra grilled cheese bonus. When you think of jalapeño poppers, you probably think about the appetizers you eat before the great meal. It is just a snack before the main course but you won’t think about them that way ever again after having this sandwich.
Sometimes you just have to have breakfast for dinner. This delicious protein bowl is the perfect mix of tasty and hearty. By using Alexia Sweet Potato Fries to give it a sweet kick, you really can’t go wrong with this quick & easy meal.

It’s April Fools Day tomorrow, so what better way to celebrate by creating some fun recipes to fool your kids! Here are a few of our favorites:
Look no further for the perfect way to prank your kids, spouse, and friends for April Fools’ Day.
This traditional recipe originated from the 1600’s, with very simple ingredients it’s not as difficult as many people believe. The most difficult part is the preparation time required for this fabulous holiday treat. Although the name for Hot Cross Buns was commonly known as Good Friday Buns for nearly a hundred years, during the 1730’s the buns were starting to be sold on the streets, and therein the name as well as the popular rhyme emerged, as the sellers would shout out” One-a-penny, two-a-penny, hot-cross buns “… a penny for a larger bun or for two smaller ones. Hot Cross buns are hands down one of my all time favorite baked goods. I make them at least six times a year, if not more. Happy Easter!
After sending homemade cards for Valentines Day and other holidays, my extended family is awaiting their Easter cards. I decided to use thumb and finger prints to create a bunny and little chicks for our Hoppy Easter card. An easy card that is fun and memorable.
You can make these spring-inspired bird’s nest cupcakes in no time. They look way more complicated than they actually are. I started the actual instructions for just the decorative icing so you’ll want to have cupcakes and icings all ready beforehand.
All you need for this quick project is a few items you may already have around the house. To me this is the best kind of DIY.
I love having my kids involved in the kitchen and with food as much as possible! It is a fun way to spend time as a family and allow our kids to learn in various ways (even if they are only 1 and 2). We decided to make Fruit Pizzas, which allowed us to talk about different fruits, colors, and shapes! The kids were able to decorate their own fruit pizzas and loved every minute of it. The combination of a soft and buttery cookie with a creamy frosting and juicy fruit is all sorts of amazing.
I hated our old kitchen. It was small, cramped and outdated. Not only that, the cabinets were crumbling, the wood had water damage and the cabinets were smaller than standard size so they couldn’t fit anything. When we moved into this house, I knew I wanted to change the kitchen but I didn’t know where to begin.
