1 Bag, 8 Meals

Food prices are rising, and it doesn’t look like they’re going to go down soon. In the past I’ve blogged about what’s usually in my shopping cart. Today, I want to put some of those ideas into practical use. Before I get started, however, I’ve got some ideas that will save you even more time…

Chili Recipe Rewind

I love fall: Pumpkin cheesecake, Pumpkin lattes, Pumpkin scented candles, Pumpkins in the front yard. I bet you’re seeing a pattern. I also love football Saturdays, sweater weather, and chili. In honor of the season, I’m linking back to all the [Super] Easy Chili Recipe. Oh, and one day soon, Pumpkin recipes may magically appear…

This Blog Needs A Facelift

I’ve always known that my little blog needed more pictures, but I think it might be time for a makeover.  What kind of features, recipes, and links are important to you when you’re looking for recipes?

One Great Breakast

I love Carnation Instant Breakfast. It’s a great way to start the day and comes in SO many yummy flavors.  I’m a big fan of using it to make Breakfast Milkshakes, which offers all of the benefits of Instant Breakfast with at least a serving of fruit. However, when the temperatures drop, I prefer coffee…

What’s for Dinner?

I’ve been a little absent lately…Grad school does that to a person, but I thought I’d stop in a say hi! I haven’t been creating a lot of new recipes lately, but I’ve definately been using the ones I’ve got.  See below for the links to what I’m eating this week: Stuffed Shells (double the…

Hungry Girl’s Great Cake Debate

Mmmm — Cake. Hungry Girl tried 5 low cal cake recipes and gave us all the stats — so you don’t have to experiment at home. I’ve tried two of these recipes in the past and I know what you thinking…Cola cake? Cake with pumpkin? And all I can say to both is — YUM….

Packing Up

Hello, Blogland!  July is half over and this is my first post all month!  Eek! Unfortunately, it will probably be my only post this month, unless I find a quick and easy snack idea to post.  See, the DH and I are moving to a new state this month so I can start graduate school…

Have a Smoothie

Smoothies, A Haiku Smoothies –  blended fruit Frozen, a fruity milkshake Easy fruit servings I didn’t say it’d be a good haiku, but it does explain everything that I love about smoothies.  They are creamy, sometimes milkshake like, drinks that make it super easy to get fruit (and veggie) servings.  You can even add protein…

Hello world!

We have made the move to  WordPress.com. After several people had problems posting comments, I thought a change was due. Please be patient with me as I learn this new system.

Save Money, Time, and Calories

I’ve been asked why I blog about my recipes.  I understand the confusion…these are just simple recipes for my own family.  Nothing special: not restaurant quality, not gluten-free, not vegan. But my motivation is the league of young families, college students, and bachelors that I know that know the basics of cooking but are too…

Jen’s Take on Cooking

I’m no Rachel Ray. I don’t make fabulous, gourmet quality, ready to serve at parties type meals in thirty minutes. I am just a tired Administrative Assistant who tries to find a few minutes every night to make dinner for my husband and myself after we fall onto the couch and watch CSI reruns and…
