A new meat market opened in town a while ago.  For months, I would just drive past – smiling and waving at their mascot standing alongside the road.

Lemon Garlic Shrimp Fettuccine

Lemon, garlic and red pepper flakes bring a punch of flavor to this quick and easy shrimp pasta recipe! Being a huge fan of shrimp, I cook with it often. Sometimes I use raw shrimp and sometimes I use cooked shrimp. Cooked shrimp you say? Yes, cooked shrimp. Even though raw shrimp doesn’t take long to cook, I like to use cooked shrimp when I’m really in a pinch, like a speedy lunch or a supper in the evening before after-school activities. {Read More}

Caprese Pizza

This post includes affiliate links. Please see my disclosure. I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to post this recipe. I make this Caprese Pizza ALL THE TIME. Why? Because I can’t get enough of it. I’m pretty much in love with the trio of tomatoes, basil and balsamic to begin with (Have you seen this Tomato Basil Bruschetta?) but combine all of that goodness with some fresh mozzarella and a thin and crispy pizza crust, and you have something {Read More}

Cheesy Broccoli Soup

Sometimes I don’t think I give soup enough credit. When I start my food planning for the week, I don’t often think about adding soup to the menu. I’m not sure why, because soup is the perfect choice for lunches on-the-run and busy weeknights suppers. . .which are what we experience 80% of the time! Just think about it. Soup recipes normally make enough to serve a crowd. You can freeze soup. Soup often tastes even better the next day. {Read More}

Homemade Cheddar Chicken Strips

Raise your hand if you make a lot of “kid meals.” My husband, Josh, travels a lot, so that means a ton of weeknight meals for just the kids and me. Our children, like a lot of kids in this world, have a short list of foods they request ALL OF THE TIME. In fact, they would be happy to eat these things every night of the week if I would allow it. Here are my kiddos’ Top 5 Kid {Read More}

Old-Fashioned Sloppy Joes

Ahhh. . .let’s reminisce for a bit. Who remembers eating Old-Fashioned Sloppy Joes as a child? I do, I do. I remember eating them at home, at school, at family parties. . . I literally spent a good portion of my existence eating these delicious sandwiches. I really debated on what to call them here on Bitz & Giggles. At home, we call these sandwiches, BBQ. Do you call them BBQ or Sloppy Joes? Please let me know in the comments and {Read More}

Wisconsin Cheese Curd Dog

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bar-S Foods. All opinions are 100% mine. How is it already August? You know what I think of when I think of August? Our hometown fair – the Athens Fair (AKA World’s Fair). When I was little I couldn’t wait for the annual event. My friends and I would take our bikes “uptown” and watch as the midway “came to life” – ticket booths, food stands, rides. We watched {Read More}
