Simple Dinners: Ranch BBQ Cheesy Skillet Dinner #RollIntoSavings #shop

There is nothing I love more than the challenge of throwing simple dinners together for under $20 and feeding such a large family of hungry, growing teenagers. This Ranch BBQ Cheesy Chicken Skillet is not only under $20, but I was able to put together a fresh salad AND dessert all for under $20! Can’t beat that!

Easy Canning Recipe: Corn Cob Jelly #SundaySupper

Easy Canning Recipe: Corn Cob Jelly #SundaySupper

Saving Summer is the theme of our #SundaySupper today and it’s something that’s pretty near and dear to my heart. My garden is constantly over flowing with fruits and veggies that I can’t use up fast enough. Last year we had an over abundance of banana peppers and blueberries. This year it has been strawberries, blueberries and corn. Yes, corn. Welcome to my world. I live in Missouri and it’s pretty abundant here.

Kelloggs Cereal Collage

We eat dinner fairly early. 5:30 most nights. What happens when you eat dinner that early? By the time the night wears on, you get hungry for a snack again. Obviously I’m not going to eat a big meal or a large snack before I go to sleep. But I’m also not going to go to sleep hungry, because first of all, then I can’t fall asleep OR I wake up hungry at 2 in the morning.

Kellogg’s has so many different varieties of cereal, that are perfect for my nighttime snacking needs and won’t make it impossible for me to fall asleep. They really are the perfect good night snack.

Saving Just Got Easier! Summer fun with Paperless Coupons #WalgreensPaperless #shop

It’s summertime and that means lots of pool parties, BBQ’s and fun events.

It means we have a constant and steady flow of friends and family that visit frequently. This means we have to make sure we always have drinks and snacks on hand. We don’t want anyone going home hungry and I already have enough kids to eat me out of house and home, so I need a little extra help when it comes to keeping things stocked up.

Retro Cold Pasta Salad with Ranch, Bacon and More!

Copycat Suddenly Salad

It’s time once again for Secret Recipe Club and I cannot believe a whole month has already flown by. How in the world did we get to August already? I feel like the summer has simply flown by.

This year we are homeschooling, so the “back to school” date doesn’t affect us, but I was surprised to learn our district goes back WEDNESDAY. Yes, August 6. I mean what? Geez. They just got out.

5 Summer Ice Cream Recipes to Beat the Heat!

5 Summer Ice Cream Recipes

I don’t know where you are, but where I am (St. Louis) we’ve had some weird weather the past month. One week it’s so hot and humid you can barely breathe and the next week you start wondering if Fall is around the corner.  It’s definitely been a strange summer, but I am not complaining because I enjoy the fact that we haven’t hit temps like we did last year. But even with the “cooler than usual” temps, it’s still hot and we are still finding ways to beat the heat.
