Recipe: The Best Ever Sloppy Joe

This is my fast and easy go to meal when I am sick of the same old stuff or in a hurry. It is nice to throw together on a Sunday night then just warm it up during the week in the slow cooker. It is not too sweet or sour, and it has just the right mix of veggies and seasonings. Start with 1 tablespoon of chili powder, then add more if you prefer more heat! If you are worried about the cooking wine and serving this to children, NO WORRIES! The alcohol cooks out! If you are wondering why this is in the pasta category, read to the bottom to find out.

If you don’t eat beef, this taste good with ground turkey or ground chicken. I have tried it all 3 ways. The chicken was by far my favorite though.

Please enjoy and let me know what you think!

Recipe: Creamy Cajun Chicken and Linguine

This year for Valentine’s Day we stayed in. Since I am not big on this holiday to start with, I was happy with this. My son ended up with the Flu and home that night (and the rest of the week off school) so we made it work. My boyfriend made me a delicious Valentine’s Day dinner. I’m a chicken and pasta addict so the man fed right into that addiction! He has a background in cooking so I thought it was time the man cooked for me. Here is the recipe he used with a few of his own little tweaks.

#Recipe: Italian Herb Lasagna Roll-Ups

I love making lasagna and it is a dish that my boys really enjoy. I wanted to change it up a bit so I came up with these roll ups. I am sure it is not my original idea since there are so many awesome Mom’s out there! They are fun to make and to eat. It’s an easy recipe that you can get the kids involved in! Spencer loves to stick the toothpicks in the top since he couldn’t quite get the rolling part down. I actually made almost a double batch which is why there are so many in my pan pictured below. ENJOY!
