DIY Mini Pizzas for Kids

Here’s what I love about these DIY mini pizzas: they’re not only a fun activity that gets my kids excited about helping in the kitchen, but they’re also pretty much the easiest dinner ever to make. Letting my kids be a part of the dinner-making process has been a big challenge lately. Zane is 4 and at […]


Weeknight Meal: Garlic Ranch Chicken with Roasted Carrots and Potatoes

  I am always, always on the lookout for quick and easy meals to make on weeknights that are simple, healthy and family friendly. For the most part, Cubby is a good eater; he loves vegetables and fruit, and will try everything. In order to prevent meal meltdowns, however, I try to make meals that […]


Weeknight Meal: Pesto Pasta with Brussels Sprouts and Chicken Sausage

I made this dish this past week, and not only was it simple and quick, but both Mr. Whale and I inhaled our meals (which is typically not unusual with two little ones heading towards bedtime, but this time it was because the meal was so tasty!).

I’m not usually prone to drama, but let me tell you – you’ll never want to eat another chicken biscuit sandwich after you eat these. I promise. They’re going to change your life. This is a recipe that Mr. Garland came up with one night when we both were craving Chick-Fil-A but didn’t want to […]


Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash

I just love the fall when squash is in season and is inexpensive and easy to find. Just a few weeks ago I stocked up on some acorn squash, and wondered how to really cook it up nicely. In the past I had done some simple recipes with cinnamon and brown sugar, which were good, […]


Slow Cooker Eggplant Parmigiana

I’ve done eggplant “lasagna” in the oven before with marinara and cheese, and it’s been decent. But this, this is truly amazing, and will even impress those who don’t like eggplant. I promise! I have a crock pot cooking confession – I’m not a fan of using sodium-laden cans of soup, but this method makes up so […]
