I decided to put together a list of things that would be fun, and seem fairly easy, for teachers to make with their students. If you have any that you would like to add, please leave a comment below with your link. Remember, we are looking for simple, kid friendly ideas. read the rest of this entry »
I am a little late getting this Potato Pancake recipe post up. When I posted my photo to Instagram, it should have gone up the next day. Sadly, I became sick and did not do much else other than sleep. I apologize for making you wait but trust me, it was worth it!
Leftovers are not usually a thing in our home. I already seem to cook for an army of boys and they don’t leave anything behind. I always seem to make way more mashed potatoes than I need, for 6 people. While I am not a big fan of regular pancakes, I love potato pancakes but, I have never tried to make them before. Wait, probably because there are never any left over. Well, I lucked out. The boys graciously left me a ton so, my attempt at it was born.
I am so glad that I decided to go ahead and do these. They are absolutely delicious. The chives are an amazing flavor in these. If you love baked potatoes, you will love these Potato Pancakes. It is a quick and easy breakfast to throw together. I don’t recommend making these in advance. They are best served fresh and slightly crispy. If left in the fridge over night, they lose the crisp. If you don’t mind that, by all means, cook ahead!
The kids can definitely get involved making these too. Royal loves to flip the breakfast. Whether it’s pancakes or french toast, he always gets in there and wants to do it. Hopefully he will grow up to have the same love for cooking, and baking, as I do.

Dinner is always a big theatrical event in our home. I always go over board. I decide at the last minute to make something from scratch. I suppose that isn’t a bad thing but it definitly makes for some hair pulling nights. Some nights, there are six kids here between the ages of 13 and 4. It can be quite interesting. I hope that I get better at planning ahead. Organization is not my strong suit but I do try.
Yesterday it was ribs for dinner. Hell yea I said ribs! I think it is just terrible if you donot love ribs and BBQ sauce ;). In my opinion, the bbq sauce is what makes or breaks a good batch of ribs. I scouted out Pinterest for a recipe. I was so overwhelmed with how many there were. I also needed one that would fit with what I had on hand. After looking atm what felt like, 100 recipes, I put together this one. I was pleased with it for the most part. I thought I could taste a little too much ketchup flavor but, I have also been sick. Everyone else said it was really good. However, you know kids and significant others lie to spare your feelings so, you be the judge!
It take 10 minutes to put together and an hour to simmer. Don’t be like me, plan ahead!This recipe makes enough to store for later, if you have canning jars on hand. I will also suggest that you use brand products. I say this because you just seem to get a much better flavor. I listed what I used but of course, use what you have! Also, this is not a sponsored post.
Please leave a comment and let me know what you think! Do you have any tweaking ideas?
I was shocked to find out that so many people I know have switched from pork bacon to turkey bacon. I am without a doubt a huge bacon lover so even getting myself to try it was a big ordeal. You can of course taste the difference but it’s really not bad! The boys have actually come to like it too. What I like about it most is knowing there is not all that grease in the pan when it’s done cooking. I know, I know, that’s the best part right?
I am certain this is not an original idea but it was one of those, open the fridge, look in and grab, dinner moments. Really simple and really delicious. I am a big fan of Applegate Naturals bacon for a number of reasons.
It is all natural, no antibiotics used, gluten free, casein free, not preserved, minimally processed, no artificial ingredients and a lot more. I purchase mine at Kroger so there is a very good chance you can find this at your local grocery store. Applegate isn’t just limited to bacon either. They make a wide variety of products from hot dogs to lunch meats! read the rest of this entry »
