Most Moms’ ears perk up when they hear the works quick, easy, and chicken.  Who doesn’t want another simple (and affordable!) recipe to add to their collection??

That’s why I’m such a huge fan of this cream cheese and chicken taquito recipe.  It’s as easy as making a sandwich would be.  But I can make these ahead of time and put them in the fridge for lunches or snack time.

30 Last Minute Dinners You Can Throw Together Right Now

30 Last Minute Dinners You Can Throw Together Right Now

Inside: Last minute dinner ideas can save you from another night of pizza deliveries. Get recipes that use ingredients you probably have on hand!

At least once a week around here, there comes a night when dinner time sneaks up on me.  I’ll look at the clock, wonder what happened to my day, and realize that I’d better get something that looks like dinner put on the table!

Since our days of ordering pizza on the fly are over, it’s good to have a list of foods you can usually toss together with just a little effort using things you have on hand.  I’m not saying this list will cut it if your pantry is down to nothing but a jar of pimentos and a bottle of hot sauce!  (If that’s you, head over to learn more about grocery services like Kroger Clicklist instead.  Trust me, you need this in your life!)

But if it’s a run of the mill evening and you’re too tired to create a recipe based on what you’ve got, don’t worry.  It’s as simple as scrolling through this list of delicious recipes here!

Over 40 Of The Best Easy Meals for Large Families

Over 40 Of The Best Easy Meals for Large Families

Inside: Tons of tried and true easy meals for large families.  Make meal time less of a chore!

Waaaaay back in the day, I was a young girl in 4-H.  My goal was to take every single cooking project.  I did well enough to compete at the state level more than once, and even won an “Outstanding of the Day” award there for my bread.  Which I probably work into more conversations than I should.

To this day I maintain that I learned more usable life skills in 4-H than I did from my school.  Which may or may not be true, I guess.  After all, I’m using the writing abilities I got from school right now.

Anyway, I have always enjoyed cooking and baking.  But those competitions are a lot different from creating a meal night after night.  Especially when you’re cooking for a large family.

Secure Your Savings: Begin Meat Free Monday

Secure Your Savings: Begin Meat Free Monday

Being the frugal nerd of the family, I’ve wanted to try meat free Monday in our home for years.  Don’t get me wrong.  I have no interest in going vegetarian, or even having most of our meals without meat.  I simply wanted to find more wiggle room in our grocery budget.

Going meatless just one night per week helps the budget.  But convincing the Hubby wasn’t easy.  To him, supper is a chunk of meat with some sides dishes.

But I knew I could convince him.  And after years of compromises, we’ve found some meatless meals that save money without compromising on taste.

Let’s talk about some ways to convince your family to try meat free Monday so you can save on your grocery budget.
