Happy 2nd day of Fall!

Happy 2nd day of Fall!

It’s officially my favorite season of the year. Living in the South, we don’t really have seasons other than Hot, Hotter, and Holy Baby Jesus It’s Hot. But during that time of the year when the rest of the country begins the marked progression between summer and winter, we like to pretend to do the […]

Vegetable-Packed, Yummy Tomato Sauce!

Vegetable-Packed, Yummy Tomato Sauce!

I love to make my own tomato sauce for several reasons: It’s incredibly healthy. I know exactly what’s in it (and what’s not in it!) and that makes me feel really good about what I’m feeding my family. Even the pickiest eaters love spaghetti! They don’t have to know just how many vegetables the sauce […]

Bowtie Pasta Salad

I love this pasta salad! It’s not my recipe, and I haven’t even edited it to make it my own because it was perfect just the way it was when I found it online. Unfortunately, I found it over a year ago when I was searching for a bowtie pasta recipe to serve at my […]

Slow Cooker Ribs

These are SO good (for the whole family!) and so easy! Prep time is about 5 minutes. Grease a crockpot and line the bottom with 2 cups chopped onion (I use the frozen, pre-chopped onions for faster prep). Place 3-4 pounds of boneless pork ribs on top of the onions. Sprinkle pork with ½ tsp […]
