Ladybugs on a Log

Rating: 4.5 stars 13
I came up with this variation on Ants on a Log for Thanksgiving because my brother hates raisins. They would also work well for schools or daycares with nut-free rules for snacks and lunches.

Yummiest Green Beans Ever

Rating: 4.5 stars 25
This dish was created out of boredom with plain, average green beans! It's sweet, tangy and savory...and my kids absolutely love it! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do! I use leftover sliced deli ham since it is already sliced thin and makes perfect tiny pieces, but leftover dinner ham would be delicious also!

Awesome Broccoli Marinara

Rating: 4 stars 158
This is a great quick version of an Italian traditional side dish in our family all the way from Italy. You can use fresh tomatoes and basil. However, as a mother of four, I opt for the quick method as I'm sure other parents of small ones can appreciate. The kids really love this dish too. Buon Appetito!

Best Baked French Fries
Rating: Unrated 484
The healthiest way to make fries is to bake them. It saves money and you can't beat the taste. I have been playing around with different ways to bake fries for some time now, and I feel this is the best recipe thus far. Baking time may vary depending on how thick you cut the fries. Enjoy!
