Instant Pot Hamburger Veggie Soup

I LOVE this recipe! The fact that it only cooks for 4 minutes is a dream come true when it comes to cooking dinner. Granted, the sauteing, warm-up, and pressure release takes the time up to about 20 minutes. But, still is a super fast dinner and makes my life easier. There are lots of [...]

Instant Pot Perfect Beef Stew

We are weekly church go-ers and have been my entire life. Same church, same religion no matter where I've lived...I guess you can say it's a pretty big part of who I am. From a young age, having a beef stew after church became a tradition that I've continued with my own family. We don't [...]

Everyone needs a good chili recipe, and we must be nothing short of original because we like our chili simple and traditional. And, this recipe comes from a lot of cans which is great for making quick dinner prep or taking to a Super Bowl party. A couple of things I'd like to share about the [...]

Fluffy Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pancakes

While this isn't the most nutritious meal, I want to point out, there is a big difference between refined, highly processed pancakes and pancakes made with whole grain real ingredients. When we eat food made with whole-real food ingredients, we are giving our body the nutrients, vitamins, and fiber that it needs to work and [...]

Vegetable Lasagna

  Here is our family's version of lasagna that dares to compete with traditional recipes. Traditional recipes are basically a meat, cheese, and noodles meal, while this one includes subtle-flavored vegetables that my kids will devour, even when they are very used to the "traditional" recipes (grandma makes killer lasagna). This is also a meatless [...]
