Easy Hot Artichoke Dip

It literally takes 60 seconds to get this dip in the oven. Having little kids in the house, I can’t be tied up for long. So this dip is reeeeeally perfect.

It also insures a serving of veggies getting into these hobbits. Not that they know, of course. I just tell’em it’s “Monster Dip” and let them think they’re eating monsters.

Homemade Pimento Cheese

I never knew how much I like pimento cheese until I tried my Grandmama’s recipe. Every time we go to her house for a visit, she has a bowl of pimento cheese and a platter of vegetables and crackers. Just the way her grandchildren like it. And it might suprise you how much we eat, but once you try this recipe yourself, you’ll understand why.

Easy Soaked Chocolate Chip Muffins

On mornings when we wake up late or are going to be very busy, I generally opt for muffins. They take 30 minutes start to finish, a lot less dishes than pancakes, and are a great grab and go meal.The last couple of weeks, when the two three year old gets hungry between meals due to a growth spurt, I would just hand him a muffin. Then I started to question if that was the healthiest decision. I mean, we all know wheat is not the healthiest of grains out there. And if were being honest, we mainly use it as a filler.

I wanted to make the muffins we ate a little healthier, since we love them so much. Most of what I found was just telling me to substitute in whole wheat flour for white, add nuts and seeds, and use a less processed sweetener. I already knew all of those to be options. What I found that was new, was to soak it.

At first, I was all like, eww…soggy muffins?…GROSS! But it turns out that all you do differently is move part of the process ahead some. Sounds easy, right? It is!

Slow Cooker Lentil Black Bean Chili {Vegetarian}

Sometimes I find myself giggling at how fast and easy it is to make dinner using the slow cooker. You just put everything in turn it on and go! It’s that simple. I know, I know. It’s the best kitchen device ever invented! Next to a spoon. Otherwise, how would we eat our peanut butter???

I told my brother I would help him with his school work in a second, I just had to make dinner first. He raised an eyebrow, confused. “Isn’t that going to take forever?” he asked.

I then came back with, “To quote hamlet, act III, scene III, line 92,… no!”

All I had to do was chop the carrots, and garlic (I was out of the jarred stuff), and the onion. Mix it all together with the other ingredients in a pot and turn it on!
