Breakfast is the most important meal of the day… blah blah blah. Yea, we know, but we also don’t have time for it. If it is not easy, I am not eating breakfast. My goal is to come up with quick, easy, and healthy breakfast recipes, so here it goes…
I think I’ve been living under a rock, but I just went to Trader Joe’s for like the 2nd time in my life and discovered their Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend. OMG this is life changing. I have been coming up with new “recipes” or “concoctions” to use it on. This morning I tried out a new way to use it, which was delicious and took all of 5 minutes to make. I might make myself another one!
When I say I am obsessed with this seasoning, I am not lying! Please share other ways I can use it!
The Skinny Baked Macaroni and Cheese meal is so delicious that it even fooled our husbands because they didn’t know it was “skinny”! It is so easy to make, and can be frozen for another meal! We love make-ahead and freezer friendly meals, mainly because it takes some of the stress out of our night by trying to come up with a family friendly meal. We highly recommend this meal for you and your family.
Most of us think… “Dinner…ugh. Do I really have time for that? Isn’t it just easier to get take out? Yes, but it is healthier? Is it cheaper?” The answer is most likely, no. Well, you are in luck because we have compiled some of our favorite slow-cooker recipes that are bound to be family favorites! We both have toddlers, and even they would eat most of them… if we tell them they are waffles. HA! A few times we got the dreaded, “Ummm… I don’t like that!”, but in the end it was still a win for us!
It was a Saturday night, and I was up for the challenge of a new recipe! I also wanted something relatively easy, and this was it. I have never made tostadas before, but now that I know how easy and delicious they are, I will be making them more often. Give them a try! Meghan
Some crazy days lead into crazy dinner nights! Tonight was one of them. I got the kids all set, but what about me? Well… what about an easy and yummy meal just under 10 minutes from start to finish? This Easy Roasted Lemon-Garlic Shrimp recipe from Skinnytaste is a winner! I love the taste and simplicity of this go-to meal for mommy.
Ok so this next one is one of my specialties. I call it the “Taco Pizza” only because I use a taco shell as my crust, there is nothing else “taco” about it. I have told you all before that I am really bad when it comes to eating lunch. I usually skip it, because it is too hard for me to come up with something easy to make. The one day I was in the mood for pizza, but the kid was napping, and I had no cash for pizza delivery. I brainstormed, and came up the the perfect solution! Let me introduce to you to… the Taco Pizza! Easy, healthy, and delicious, especially if you are a pizza lover like me.
I have been becoming more and more adventurous with my recipes, and I stumbled upon this Skinnytaste recipe and it looked so good and so easy. Spoiler alert… it was both of those things! The flavors really complimented each other, and the pecans added a crunchy texture, which was to die for! The only thing I couldn’t do myself was make the eggs. No matter how hard I try, I cannot make sunny-side-up eggs to save my life! I had to call in the big guns, aka my husband to do that part. Thanks, babe! Enjoy!
I asked my husband what he wanted for dinner and he said “something Mexican flavored,” so here goes my first attempt at enchiladas! The were relatively easy to make, and I had most of the ingredients at home already, which is always a win! Give them a try! Enjoy!
I was in the mood for pasta, but I didn’t want just regular pasta with red sauce. I stumbled upon this Skinnytaste recipe and I had to give it a shot! I wouldn’t say it was difficult to make, but it did have quite a few steps. However, it was worth it! The creaminess of the butternut squash, paired with the spicy sausage was delicious! Give it a shot and let us know what you think!

Are you sick and tired of the same old breakfast? Here’s an easy, no prep meal that you can make ahead of time and eat throughout the week. The bonus? You make it in the crockpot! Crockpot steel cut oats are super easy! When you’re ready to eat, garnish them with your favorite flavors. I added a little honey, cinnamon, walnuts and craisins. Yum! I also added some chia seeds for additional fiber.
Combine 4 ½ cups of water with 1 cup of oats. Add ¼ teaspoon of salt for taste (optional).
Cook on low for 6-8 hours (or high for 2 ½ – 3 hours) or until desired texture. Stir once part way through the cook time.
Top with your favorite toppings. I used pecans, craisins, and a little cinnamon.
This amount serves 4. I put the leftovers in a container and refrigerated. I scooped out the amount I wanted each morning and then reheated in the microwave. If needed, you can add a little water to thin it and reheat.
