TBT: Sweet Potato Casserole

So, have you started looking towards Thanksgiving yet? I certainly have as I like to plan out my menu, shopping list and cooking schedule weeks in advance to make sure the day goes as smoothly as possible. There are some recipe favorites that I know will always appear on our table alongside our brined turkey. One of those is sweet potato casserole. However, we do ours a little differently and top it with cinnamon marshmallows and a pepita streusel!

Chicken and Vegetable Coconut Curry

Quick weeknight meals are a must in our house so I am so excited to partner with Imagine® Organic Culinary Simmer Sauces for this post to show you how a great meal can be made in under 15 minutes. As always, while I may have been compensated for this post, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

Weeknights are crazy in our household. I try to skip take out and limit eating out to once per week so having easy to make dishes that come together quickly are a must. On top of that, they actually need to taste good too so my family will eat them. That can be a tall order unless we want to eat spaghetti every night! This chicken and vegetable coconut curry is perfect for the times when I need something on the table fast that also tastes great.

Chicken and Vegetable Coconut Curry that is ready super fast and is so delicious. I can't wait to try it.

Halloween Snacks: Monster Cookie Dip

SoFab Disclosure

So, Halloween is this week. Eek! Are you like me and still planning out all the details of the day/night? We have our costumes but our annual pre-trick or treat dinner is still really up in the air. We invite a bunch of friends, with their kids, over to enjoy dinner before we go raid the neighborhood collecting candy. I love it but I am seriously stressed this year because my menu hasn’t fully taken shape. Thankfully, I have a few Halloween party food go tos I can rely on like monster cookie dip.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

For several years, Mathlete and I would have a small Thanksgiving at home before heading off to celebrate with family the next day. Of course, with only a few people, it didn’t make much sense to cook a huge turkey. Plus, I was usually working the day of our pre-Thanksgiving meal so I needed something that could cook easily. It was during that time that I made my first slow cooker turkey breast and now I make them all throughout the year so we can have turkey for sandwiches and other meals.

My house is pretty neutral when it comes to paint, furniture and even a lot of the artwork. So, I am always looking for ways to add color to my home.

So, I thought I would share 3 ways you can easily add color to your home that are inexpensive and easy.

White Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese with Hot Dogs

Hot dogs play a big role at meal time in our household because our kids {especially our son} loves them. So, I am excited to partner with Hillshire Brands™ and the Mom It Forward Blogger Network for this post. As always, while I may have been compensated, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

Kids are funny when it comes to their eating habits. Mine focus on a few specific items and that is all they want to eat for weeks at a time. Then, they don’t like it anymore…at least until they tire of whatever they moved on to. Two thins that never get rejected are hot dogs and macaroni and cheese. To make my life easier, I just typically combine them and make a dish like white cheddar macaroni and cheese with hot dogs. It is always a win!

20 Minute Mummy Pizza

My family loves pizza. So, I am excited to partner with Fleischmann’s Pizza Crust Yeast to bring you this quick, family friendly recipe. As always, while I may have been compensated for this post, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

We used to have bi-weekly pizza nights where we would get together and make homemade pizza with toppings of our choice. Even then, I was always nervous about making the crust so I would buy dough from the store. Of course, that dough requires time to rise and so I always had to make sure I planned ahead. We stay pretty busy right now so that planning ahead part isn’t usually in the cards and we end up with pre-made pizza crust instead. This 20 minutes mummy pizza changed that for good!

Super cute homemade mummy pizza in 20 minutes!
