Ritz Cracker Macaroni and Cheese

Ritz Cracker Macaroni and Cheese – This is some of the creamiest, cheesiest mac and cheese you will ever taste. I love the crunch of Ritz crackers on top!

Hamburger Helper Cheeseburger Casserole

Thank you to Helper for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to try their Free Ground Beef Rebate! #Helper #freebeef #ad Weeknights at our house are BUSY!  In fact, most nights after finishing up at work and picking up our youngest from daycare, I arrive home and literally run around the kitchen trying to get some food on the table.

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.

All opinions and text are my own. #MACNATOR​ On the way home from work the other night I realized I never took any meat out of the freezer for dinner. Do you do this, too? I’m a repeat offender. Better meal planning is actually part of my New Years resolution. . .I’m failing already. On a brighter note, I do have some recipes in {Read More}

Cheesy Chili Mac Skillet

If you hang around here long enough, you’ll begin to see a pattern with many of my recipes. So much of what I share here on the blog could be categorized as comfort food.

One of the things I love most about comfort food is {Read More}

Taco Spaghetti

Remember when you were little and counted down the days until your birthday – looking forward to the cake and the gifts – your friends at school showing you a little extra attention because you brought a treat for everyone that day? Yep, I remember those days. How is it that the magic of birthdays kind of gets lost oh. . .at about age 30? LOL I shouldn’t be so down and out! Today is my birthday and life IS {Read More}
