Potato Corn Chowder – Just like Grandma used to make! This flavorful combination of potatoes, corn, carrots and bacon in a creamy, cheesy broth is a perfect soup for the whole family! This post includes affiliate links. Please see my disclosure. Ahh yes, soup. It’s just one of those things that makes you feel good. It warms you up. It satisfies. It’s a full meal inside of a little bowl. I REALLY love cheesy soups, and this Potato Corn Chowder ranks {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}

Broccoli Cheese Dip

Another win for the Green Bay Packers yesterday! Woo hoo! We had quite a busy weekend packed with parties, both impromptu and planned. Impromptu parties happen around our neighborhood quite a bit. It starts with a little chit chat and then we get to talking about dinner. The conversation goes a little like this, “So, what are you having for dinner tonight?” “I haven’t even thought about it. What are you having?” Once we establish that no one really is prepared {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}

Chicken Asparagus Roll-Ups

Let me tell you what. . .it’s been a stressful last few weeks. I’ve had a lot going on personally, so my blog has suffered. I apologize, but when it rains, it pours. Last Sunday my husband’s great-grandmother passed. Yes, you heard me right. GREAT-Grandmother. It’s been such a blessing to have her in our lives. There aren’t many that can say they had the pleasure of meeting, let alone growing up with their great-grandmother. Our children will be able to {Read More}

Beer Brat Cheesy Chowder

Ahh, the joys of winter. When you’ve lived in Wisconsin your whole life, you really have no choice but to embrace the cold and snow. I, on the other hand, continue to fight it. Don’t get me wrong, there are days the snow can be down right gorgeous and there are other days it feels really warm and cozy to be “snowed in,” but that’s where the nostalgia kind of ends for me. This weekend we attended the Polar Plunge – a fund {Read More}

Cheesy Artichoke Dip

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Crystal Farms Cheese. All opinions are 100% mine. I’m still a bit disappointed about the Packers’ loss against the Seahawks, but life goes on, and of course, I’m going to be watching the Super Bowl game. . .for the commercials and the snacks. 🙂 Who’s going to pass up an opportunity to get some friends together and put out a spread of appetizers and finger food? Ummm. Not me. One of my {Read More}
