Prepping Freezer Meals Before Baby

March 30, 2016 duchessoffork 1

Baby Number 3 is due to arrive in just about three weeks. In some ways I’m beyond ready (tired, achy, waddling, peeing every 5 minutes, ready to get in our new groove), but I’m also trying to savor these last couple weeks as a family of four. We’ve been in a …

Weekly Meal Plan {March 7-11}

March 7, 2016 duchessoffork 0

One week from today my baby boy will be a big THREE year old! How does that happen so fast? We have some fun celebrations planned with friends for the coming weekend so I’m hoping the glorious spring weather sticks around. I’m not sure where the motivation is comi …

Weekly Meal Plan {February 1-5}

February 1, 2016 duchessoffork 0

I have been uninspired when it comes to planning our weekly menu as of late. The weeks seem to be getting busier and busier and the thought of cooking is unappealing most days. I’m trying my best to be creative so we don’t eat the same thing all the time. Any idea …

21 Day Fix Approved Weekly Meal Plan {1/11-1/15}

January 11, 2016 duchessoffork 1

I actually had the ENTIRE house to myself for close to 24 hours over the weekend and I really knocked out some meal planning and prep. Jason flew to Vegas for the big college football national championship game and both sets of grandparents pitched in to watch the kids Saturd …

The BEST Squash Casserole

July 6, 2015 duchessoffork 1

My beloved Granny Flash will be 90 years old this October. I just love that woman and everything about her. Her memory is sharp as a tack and I could listen to her stories of days gone by for hours on end. Though she doesn’t get in the kitchen as often as she used to, & …

Green Goddess Dressing {My New Favorite!}

June 8, 2015 duchessoffork 1

I absolutely love a giant salad piled high with everything but the kitchen sink. Avocado, feta cheese, cucumbers, sunflower seeds, strawberries, I’ll take it all. And I’ll take it drizzled with a fabulous dressing. I tried green Goddess Dressing for the first time …

Greek Tomato & Cucumber Salad {Perfect Summer Side}

May 15, 2015 duchessoffork 0

I love a good ole fashioned cookout as much as anyone, but even I need a break from the baked beans, cole slaw, and potato chips. I crave something fresh on my plate, no matter the occasion. Don’t get me wrong- I can’t resist my mother-in-law’s broccoli or t …

Weekly Menu {5/11-5/15}

May 11, 2015 duchessoffork 0

Happy Monday after Mother’s Day! We had the best weekend and spent the majority of it in the pool. I knew we’d love having a pool right in the back yard but it’s just been better than I could have imagined. It’s so easy to throw on our suits and get in …

Weekly Meal Plan {May 4-8}

May 4, 2015 duchessoffork 1

Monday again…but only three more Mondays of the school year and then I’m a full time SAHM again! In that case, Monday isn’t so bad. The weather here has been just perfect and we’ve been soaking up every drop of sunshine. This past weekend we went to th …

Spicy Bacon Cheese Ball

April 23, 2015 duchessoffork 2

I’m always searching for new appetizer ideas. We love to entertain, or constantly find ourselves attending functions for this or that, and I get tired of the same old dips. I tried this cheese ball at an Easter egg hunt and was hooked! So many cheese balls are simple an …
