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.

One Pan Enchilada Pasta

One of my favorite meals my mother used to make us as a child is enchiladas. I loved how good the house always smelled, the fact that she let me open the cans (yeah, we didn’t always make our own food from scratch), and the flavor! Enchiladas are definitely one of my better childhood memories. Well, I haven’t had enchiladas in FOREVER! So when I saw a recipe for a one pan enchilada pasta on Pinterest, I new what was going to be for dinner that night!

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!
