TJ’s Hidden Veggie Meatloaf (aka Meat Cake)

TJ’s Hidden Veggie Meatloaf (aka Meat Cake)

My mom’s meatloaf was a favorite meal of mine when I was a kid; slathered in ketchup and served with mashed or roasted potatoes. I’m sure she served a veggie with it, but I probably didn’t eat it because I hated pretty much ALL cooked vegetables when I was a kid. Little did I know [...]

TJ’s Hidden Veggie Minestrone

TJ’s Hidden Veggie Minestrone

I know the origins of Minestrone soup are sketchy and there’s no specific rule out there that says anyone’s version is right or wrong. All I can find is that it should have vegetables. Some say it should also have beans and zucchini and be served with noodles. Some are vegetarian, some aren’t. In an [...]

Hidden Veggie Recipes

Most kids are picky eaters at varying levels throughout their childhood. Heck, some never outgrow it and become picky adults. I know a few adults who have pickier eating habits than my preschooler. My 4.5 year old son is picky when it comes to fruits and vegetables but will eat anything in meat, noodle or [...]

Lasagna with Hidden Veggie Bolognese

Lasagna with Hidden Veggie Bolognese

A while back, I ran across this recipe for Spinach Lasagna with Bolognese Sauce on Pinterest and it sounded amazing! I made it once for my family using boxed lasagna noodles and it was really delicious. Someday I’d like to make the spinach pasta from scratch, like she’s done in the original post; maybe it [...]

Meatballs with Hidden Veggies

Meatballs with Hidden Veggies

My son loves the kid’s meatball sub sandwich from Firehouse Subs. Which I find funny because when I make spaghetti with marinara at home, he says he doesn’t like tomato sauce. He even prefers pesto sauce on his pizza instead the the typical tomato-based sauce. But for some reason, in a sandwich form with melted [...]

TJ’s More than Mac n Cheese

TJ’s More than Mac n Cheese

Over the last few years, I have tried to cut back on processed foods in our house, and hopefully save a few bucks on our grocery bill. One item we have completely eliminated is store-bought, boxed macaroni and cheese. Once I learned the basics on how to make a cheesy béchamel sauce, I figured out [...]

Clean Eating Turkey Meatballs

Clean Eating Turkey Meatballs

I enjoy having a bowl of pasta every now and again, but have never been a huge fan of meatballs – especially those made with red meat and fried in oil. When I started “cleaning up” my diet, I made these meatballs a few times and they were excellent. They pack a serious protein punch [...]

Clean Eating Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

Clean Eating Chocolate Chip Zucchini Muffins

Muffins have always been a favorite treat of mine. Since I’ve started eating “clean,” a regular muffin from a bakery, grocery store or coffee shop is definitely not on the meal plan. But these muffins are pretty much as clean as you can get and they are AWESOME. They don’t taste low-fat or “healthy” in [...]

Chicken, Mushroom & Gnocchi Bake

Chicken, Mushroom & Gnocchi Bake

One evening, I lost track of time and realized at 5 p.m. that I had no idea what I was going to make for dinner. Years ago, I would have simply texted my husband to pick up takeout or we would just go out, but we have been trying to be more frugal with how [...]

Spinach Muffins

Spinach Muffins

From talking to many other mamas, it seems that most babies and toddlers go through their own picky eating phases. My own little guy certainly does! Some days he’ll eat veggies very willingly and other days, you’d think we were trying to poison him. So I have to result to being sneaky! Sneaking veggies into [...]
