Thanksgiving is a perfect day of the week to share food, love, and good cheer. It is also a good day to practice the art of meal planning and extending.
You can switch up your usual side salad at dinnertime with some unique “superfoods,” power-packed with nutrients and rich in color. Here are five green vegetables that everyone should try–share them with your kids, too!
Now that I’m looking at expanding our garden, I want to keep in mind my meal plans as I choose which vegetables to grow. Here are a few ideas I’m going to try!
Not only is February Avocado Month – but it’s also the month after we’ve all made our New Year’s resolutions to eat better, lose weight, and improve our health. If you are still looking for more ways to make healthier meals and get more nutrients into your foods, it’s time to give the avocado a […]
Baked turkey nuggets are a great way keep the kids satisfied this Thanksgiving.
This Thanksgiving, I am thankful…that I’m not hosting! I’ve basically been a lump on the couch the last two months (yay, First Trimester!), so my kitchen is barely up to the task of dinner-on-real-plates, let alone a big feast for tons of family.

So far, our focus for getting prepared has been on preparing to live without electricity or contact with the outside world for 30 days. This most likely would only occur if there were a major storm or other natural disaster, since most power outages are only for a few days. But, there are a lot […]

With the toughest cuts of beef starting above five dollars a pound, a juicy grilled steak will bust the $7 Dinner budget… or will it? Very recently, […]
It doesn’t take much to render us powerless . . . that sounds deeper than I mean. I am talking about electricity. One ice storm, one tornado, one well-placed lightening strike, and we are thrust back to pioneer life, possibly for several days or a few weeks. Here are some ideas to prepare you […]
With the warmer summer weather, I’d been aching to get out for a day of hiking with my husband – complete with a picnic lunch. I saw a great article on NPR about how to fix a meal that stays fresh all morning while you’re hiking. But after thinking about it, I realized that not only is […]
