Asian Lettuce Wraps

Asian Lettuce Wraps

We LOVE these quick and simple Asian Lettuce Wraps!! We call them “Asian” because we will never forget the first time we had them at PF Changs!! They are to die for!! This is a delicious, easy version that our Mom created for us to enjoy lettuce wraps at home!

These Asian Lettuce Wraps are a healthy, quick side dish or can easily be the main course. Our recipe serves 8 as a side or 4 people as a main dish. The sauce makes them!! The best part is the ingredients are all very common and easy to find. Try something new tonight that your family is gonna love! These Asian Lettuce Wraps will be just that!!! xoxo

Mango Salsa

Mango Salsa! We are in love! The best one we ever tasted was in a Mexican Restaurant in Portland. Our mom tried copying it as soon as we got home and this is the tasty result!

Mango Salsa is sooooo delicious and goes well with almost everything! This salsa pairs well with tortilla chips or tacos or any other Mexican dishes. It is excellent along side grilled chicken, pork, or fish, like Tilapia. It is such a fresh and delicious option from your regular salsa! The twist of spicy and sweet make this Mango Salsa something everyone enjoys! Give it a try!! You’re gonna love it! XO

Salmon with Garlic Butter and Pine Nuts

Salmon with Garlic Butter and Pine Nuts

We LOVE Salmon! We will try just about anything on it! Our darling cousin Beth gave us this Salmon with Garlic Butter and Pine Nuts “recipe” (if you can even call it that it’s so simple:)) and we thought it was pretty darn good! This is an easy way to mix it up and add so much more flavor than your average Salmon fillet plain. Serve it with some rice and a yummy salad and you have an amazing meal! Our kids even devoured this! Hope you enjoy this fresh, simple Salmon with Garlic Butter and Pine Nuts! XO

Peanut Butter Waffles

Peanut Butter Waffles…….doesn’t the name alone make your mouth water?! When we were kids we went through a phase where we spread Peanut Butter all over our Mom’s waffles and drowned them with syrup:)! We thought that was the greatest thing ever! So naturally when we were flipping through some of our moms old recipes (that didn’t make it into the books) we found these and made them! We think they’re pretty good! And we love the fact that the peanut butter is already in the batter and flavored evenly. No need to spread it on after!

Mothers Day is coming up this weekend and these Peanut Butter Waffles would be a fun and different thing to serve Mom breakfast in bed;)!! I bet the kids will love these too!

Italian Bread

Italian Bread

This is our to die for Italian Bread! Our Mom has been baking this bread since before we can remember. It is so soft inside and has a great crusty outside. EVERYONE loves this bread! We use it for sandwiches, garlic bread, to dip in soup, to make french toast, you name it! I promise you will not be disappointed with this Italian Bread.

Don’t be intimidated to bake bread! It is not as hard as you think. Our Mom is known for her breads and she really does show you in her book the tips and tricks to making good bread. So many people think when a recipe calls for yeast, they can’t do it! YOU CAN!!! Make yourself feel and look like a rockstar to those you love and try baking up some of this Italian Bread!! You’re gonna love it!! XOXO

CPK Green Pasta Copycat

CPK Green Pasta Copycat

We love to go out to eat and enjoy yummy dishes like this one. We have been ordering this pasta at CPK for over 10 years! Even kids devour it! Who doesn’t love chicken and peppers smothered in a dreamy white sauce? This is just a copycat… but I think you going to enjoy it to! The original recipe has tequila in it. Your welcome to add a couple of tablespoons but we have taken it out. We have found that after you dish up your serving if you squeeze lots of lime and coarse salt on it…. it’s super yummy!! If your up for something different make sure to add this dish to the list! I think you will love it! XOXOXOXOXOX

CARROT SOUP

CARROT SOUP

FALL IS IN THE AIR! CARROT SOUP IS A UNIQUE DISH TO MAKE AND SHARE WITH A FRIEND!

This is an easy tasty soup. I always pair it with my homemade French baguettes…..which are great for dipping in the soup!!! YUMMY!

Set some new cooking goals today! If you don’t cook at all try meal planning for 2 days… if you cook 2 times a week try 4!! People make all the excuses in the world of why they don’t have time to cook.. I raised 7 kids that were very involved. It is what bonded us together everynight! Give it a try. Tonight if your sitting around the table with your family.. Ask them what goals they have for this school year? XOXO
