Pasta e Fagioli in the Slow Cooker

It seems that spring may finally have sprung! Maybe? Hopefully?! And in the spring, I love to put my slow cooker to good use… making soup! I know, I know. That seems totally wrong, right?! Soup is supposed to be a winter staple. Here in New England, there’s still a chill in the air… but [...]

Mix and Match Baked Pasta Dishes

Toddler eating habits make for frustrated mothers. My pint-sized fickle one is completely unpredictable when it comes to what he will and will not eat, but there are three things that I can almost always get him to eat: dairy, fruit and noodles in most forms.

And if the recipe just happens to be a delicious, childhood comfort food, then that’s a huge added bonus! I didn’t start liking cauliflower until I was an adult, but once I fell in love [...]

Ground Turkey Two Ways

When I worked as a nanny, one of the moms whom I helped years ago taught me two quick and easy meals using just ground turkey and a taco pack seasoning.  She used this base to create two completely different meals — tacos naturally and Shepherd’s pie. Now that I’m a mom, I love that [...]
