Georgia Peanuts Tour

Last week I had the opportunity to head down south to Georgia for few days to tour how Georgia Peanuts are harvested.  This was such an amazing experience. Not only did we see the harvesting process, but we also learned about the science behind the crop, and got to visit the facilities where the harvested peanuts go for…

Easy Chicken Stir Fry

Another quick weeknight meal. My kids absolutely loved this dish. I love making stir fry at home because you can control the salt in take and you can add whatever vegetables and protein that you would like. Think of this as a healthier takeout option. Enjoy! 2 tablespoons toasted or plain sesame oil 4 garlic…

Chicken Piccata

One of the easiest dishes you could possibly make Chicken Piccata is my go to on a busy day. We enjoyed some roasted veggies on the side and I made some pasta for the kids (I stayed away from the pasta because of all that delicious southern comfort food I had for the last couple…

  I’m super excited to share that I was on Hallmark Channel’s Home and Family show. On the show I made a delicious and easy corn and zucchini pie. Summer is almost over which means Zucchini and corn are all over the place. Below I have the recipe and a link to the actual segment…

Chinese Dumplings

If you’re not following me on Instagram then be sure to do so.  Lately I have been doing live little cooking demos with my kids. I have always said it’s so important to get the kids in the kitchen. This will help them develop so much from becoming open to trying new things to appreciating…

Zucchini Fritters

  We have so much zucchini coming up in our garden right now that I have been trying to come up with different things to do with them.  Zucchini fritters just sounded perfect for this post. Not only are they easy to make but it also makes for great leftovers.  You can also make the…

Philadelphia Phillies Family Fun Day!

I can’t think of a more American way to spend summertime with family, than to watch a good old baseball game.  On the 4th of July I took my family to see the Philadelphia Phillies host the Baltimore Orioles, and what a game it was.  We arrived about an hour and a half before first…

Easy Homemade Churros

Here is a great dessert to share with guests tomorrow for your cinco de mayo party. They actually serve these in Brazil as well. I do love my churros with dolce de leche but I didn’t have any for serving. People also love to serve these with jam or Nutella. But they are delicious just the…

Strawberry Salsa

    It’s almost party time. Cinco de mayo is Saturday and we always love to have people over to celebrate. This salsa is full of flavor and trust me you will not want to share. I have made sweet salsas before with mango and watermelon which I have recipes on here as well. But…

Roasted Sunchokes

  Some people have never heard of Sunchokes. It’s just one of those vegetables you might walk by because of the way they look. Sunchokes look like ginger roots so make sure you’re double checking before purchasing. They aren’t the prettiest vegetable, but have great flavor. Like I mentioned before in my posts, roasting veggies…
