Secret Ingredient Potluck Pasta Salad: Kid Approved!!!

This recipe was happened upon by accident and, like most recipes born out of a moment of desperation. I was cooking for a larger crowd and needed to be sure my kids would have something to eat. They aren’t super-picky eaters but they can get finikey in certain situations.

Your NEW Go-to Side Dish

Sometimes we [I] get into a rut its side dishes. I go for what is easy, and what I know sells in my house: Mashed potatoes, rice, french fries, tater tots, noodles…you get the idea. I’m willing to bet you have been down a similar path in your house at one point or another too. Every is happy, but it can get kind of boring after a while. I mean the food world is so vast!

Apple-Cinnamon Pancakes That Will Make Grandma Proud

You see, in my formative pancake years the bar was set so high because grandma’s pancakes weren’t just homemade, they were homemade APPLE pancakes.
