Instant Pot Pork Carnitas

Instant Pot Pork Carnitas

We make pork carnitas in our house at least a couple of times every month. My boys love the shredded pork in quesadillas, in tacos, with eggs at breakfast, and my oldest has decided he now loves nachos. I have been following a recipe I got from Serious Eats faithfully and it’s been amazing every [...]

DIY Mustard Managed

DIY Mustard Managed

Have you ever made homemade mustard? This time was my first. I had never heard of the stuff until we spent a Christmas with my mother-in-law’s family and my husband was chatting with his cousin about this delicious homemade mustard their grandmother used to make. My hubby claims very few people can make it. Sure [...]

Honey Soy Baked Chicken

Honey Soy Baked Chicken

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest a while back and it’s become a huge hit in our house… especially on nights where I know I won’t have a lot of time to prep dinner. The original recipe called for bone-in chicken thighs, but I prefer to use boneless and skinless thighs. One, because I’m [...]

Chicken Stew with Biscuit Dumplings

Chicken Stew with Biscuit Dumplings

When I was was in college I lived with my grandmother, who was born and raised in Missouri during the Great Depression. Chicken and Dumplings was one of those homey, comfort foods that she taught me to make that we loved to share on a chilly, rainy night. Below is the recipe she taught me. Years [...]

Healthy (and Gluten Free!) Blender Pancakes

Healthy (and Gluten Free!) Blender Pancakes

We had a snow day recently (it’s not as common as you’d think in upstate New York!) and we’ve sort of developed a tradition over the past two winters that every time we have a snow day, mama makes pancakes. I don’t know if the kids understand the connection or just think “Oh…no school? It [...]

Delightful Cherry Pie

Delightful Cherry Pie

If you are looking for an alternative dessert for Christmas or any holiday gathering, this cherry pie is for you. I normally make it during the summer months because cherries are in season and that is when we have a lot of family get-togethers. When my mother-in-law mentioned how many pies she was making for [...]

Thanksgiving Lime Jello Parfait

Thanksgiving Lime Jello Parfait

Growing up, there was always one Thanksgiving dish that I looked forward to the most: my grandmother’s Lime Jello Parfait. My mom made it every year, and I’ve continued the tradition with my own family. It’s technically a dessert, but in keeping with tradition, we serve it with dinner instead of afterwards. The best part? [...]

Thanksgiving Stuffing

Thanksgiving Stuffing

Whether you call it dressing or stuffing, no Thanksgiving table is complete without this classic bread dish! Any type of bread can be used— white, wheat, homemade, or gluten-free. My friend Britney introduced me to her version of this dish almost 3 years ago, when she put together an early Thanksgiving feast for her husband [...]

Egg-Free Pumpkin Spice Bars

Egg-Free Pumpkin Spice Bars

It’s pumpkin time! (Also known as fall.) I, like many of you, am a lover of all things pumpkin this time of year— pumpkin lattes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bars. My 18-month-old son was recently diagnosed with an egg allergy and a corn allergy. Unfortunately, this includes all egg and corn byproducts, like cornstarch [...]

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 [...]
