Ham and Cheese Pretzel Calzones

With the Super Bowl right around the corner, I’ve got football food on my mind. You know, wings, pizza, nachos, pretzels….all the things that don’t jive well with New Years resolutions. But you can’t really eat salad for the Super Bowl. That would be sad and wrong. Instead you should eat calzones made of soft

Pretzel, Ham and Cheddar Kabobs

Do you pack lunch for your kids? I do and now that Noah’s been in school for almost two months, I’ve definitely gotten into a rut and have resorted to sandwiches every day. A couple days a week, I forget to pack lunch the night before so I throw something together quickly that morning before we run

Gorgonzola Macaroni and Cheese Bacon Cups

These Gorgonzola Macaroni and Cheese Bacon Cups could also be known as “why I can’t lose weight even though I work out 4 times a week” cups. Ooops.

This Sweet Corn, Bacon and Cheddar Risotto is a new favorite. I made this Saturday night for an impromptu date night at

Baked Cheddar Mashed Potatoes

I ran my first 5K on Saturday and considering I’ve run only one other time in 2015, I would consider it a success. I didn’t run the entire time but most of it and was able to beat the goal I had set for myself. Plus, it was for a cause very near and dear to

Loaded Broccoli Cheese Soup

It seems like people fall into two categories when it comes to soup, love it or hate it. My boys both moan and groan when they find out we’re having soup for dinner. It doesn’t matter what kind, they still complain. The grown one says it’s not filling enough. The little says it’s too hot

Three Cheese Fondue

Fondue is usually our go to meal on evenings when Noah spends the night at my parent’s house. He’s a cheese and carboholic but I’ve just never felt comfortable letting him eat something with so much wine in it. Poor guy would be ticked if he knew what was going on when he wasn’t around. I’ve made many

Ok, so I know I have been talking about how I’ve been eating super healthy lately but I keep sharing recipes that say otherwise.
