Does it feel like Fall yet where you live? Any hint of a slight cool breeze here in South Louisiana and we begin to cook for Fall since it doesn’t always get very cold here. Ha-ha. Some of my family’s favorites for the Fall weather are gumbo, vegetable beef soup, and homemade chili. We serve the chili with corn chips or crackers and sometimes a little cheese. It’s always a hit at the dinner table. The best part about it? Only a small amount of prep is needed. Here’s the recipe (which I learned from my husband):Read More »

(I shop weekly for the most part, to help stick to the budget)Read More »

It’s so difficult to guess whether this week will be a strawberry week or not. By the way, this goes for lots of different fruits in my household, not just strawberries. So what can I do to avoid wasting perfectly good produce that my kids are just “not in the mood for” this week? Hello healthy popsicles!Read More »
