Ground Hamburg and Cheese Grinders Recipe #recipe #foodie

The other day I wanted to find something to do with the pound of hamburg I had thawed out in the fridge, normally one would think of cheeseburgers or maybe making a form of chop suey (I call it goulash) out of it … but I wanted something different and I was craving a steak and cheese grinder …. that is when this recipe idea came to me and it was a HUGE hit in my house with the kiddos {well the 2 kiddos that actually TRY new foods} …. Ingredients: 1 lb ground hamburg Frying pan or skillet Garlic […]

Ragu Birthday Party Success

This past weekend my daughter turned 9 years old and in celebration I decided that we would have it Ragu style! My daughter and her two friends who slept over helped me create a Ragu Pizza Cupcake lunch and I worked on chicken nugget sized chicken parmesan using Ragu Sauce.

What Was I Thinking?

I thought I was being all cool when I decided no more boxed meals for this family, we are going to start eating more home cooked type of meals. I used to cook but that was before I had one child, then I cooked your basic pasta dishes and now I have three children so I just felt boxed meals of some sort were way faster than trying to cut up a bunch of veggies, meat and actually have to pay attention to what’s cooking along with three munchkins. This past week I went grocery shopping but before I did […]

My Sweet Pup Is Non Stop Shedding

Not sure if you knew, but a few months back we bought a black lab puppy, she is now nearing 7 months of age and is such a sweetie BUT her shedding is non stop, with a baby who is constantly crawling on the floor this makes for a busy mama who must vacuum often. I love my puppy but her shedding is out of this world uncontrollable and as a Mom of two in diapers, vacuuming is not first on my list of things I want to do nor is it something I have time to do more than […]
